YMIR AND ORION

First Ancestor, First Shaman

 

During a sunset walk in the snow, one afternoon in Sweden, the star constellation Orion appearing gave me a powerful vision that involved the primordial giant of Norse mythology: frost giant Ymir. (In truth I had never before assumed any connection between them!)

Ymir was the First Ancestor and First Shaman. The gods dismembered him and created the world from his body parts.

Therefore Ymir was the first person to die and he became the Lord of the Dead.

The word root of the name Ymir means “twins”. A profound mystery involving twins resides in both the night sky and world mythology.

THE WOMAN AND HER SNAKE

In this art film Imelda Almqvist explores the ancient, ancestral and archetypal yet mysterious figure of The Woman and Her Snake.

She lives Outside Time and is a Mistress of Creation and Manifestation.

We meet her in many forms all around us, in dreams, world mythology and legends about shape shifting women and snakes.

Some would say she is an archetype – others would say she is a great goddess….

Watch and decide for yourself!
