Ragnarok and 2012

by Micha F. Lindemans
Ragnarok (“Doom of the Gods”), also called Gotterdammerung, means the end of the cosmos in Norse mythology. It will be preceded by Fimbulvetr, the winter of winters. Three such winters will follow each other with no summers in between. Conflicts and feuds will break out, even between families, and all morality will disappear. This is the beginning of the end.

(This description seems to Ode to a nuclear winter or perhaps vat volcanic activity causing black out over an area.)

The wolf Skoll will finally devour the sun, and his brother Hati will eat the moon, plunging the earth [into] darkness. The stars will vanish from the sky. The cock Fjalar will crow to the giants and the golden cock Gullinkambi will crow to the gods. A third cock will raise the dead.

(^—Seems to point to the Earth stopping for a few minutes? I’ve heard this theory bounced around while during the alignment the Earth would actually stop spinning as the crust re-aligns; this would also correlate with the Hopi prophecy that the ‘Earth will rock to and fro’)

The earth will shudder with earthquakes, and every bond and fetter will burst, freeing the terrible wolf Fenrir. The sea will rear up because Jormungand, the Midgard Serpent, is twisting and writhing in fury as he makes his way toward the land. With every breath, Jormungand will stain the soil and the sky with his poison. The waves caused by the serpent’s emerging will set free the ship Naglfar, and with the giant Hymir as their commander, the giants will sail towards the battlefield. From the realm of the dead a second ship will set sail, and this ship carries the inhabitants of hell, with Loki as their helmsman. The fire giants, led by the giant Surt, will leave Muspell in the south to join against the gods. Surt, carrying a sword that blazes like the sun itself, will scorch the earth.

(^—-This section either tells me that war will result from the situation especially with the return of Midgard. Now, I never thought that Midgard was a bad spirit and this would correlate with the Mayan prophecy of the return of the Great white snake as Midgard was also white in some descriptions. This descritpion that he comes back angry tells me that perhaps the descendants of the Pre-christian white people will be punished in some way. The return of the Gods, their enemies and the dead are found in many other texts all over the world, including the Bible. I know this may seem out of the ordinary, but what if this preludes the return of extraterrestial visitors or interdimension cross rip during the alignment as some traditions believe that the veil will lift and we see things we would otherwise not see.)

Meanwhile, Heimdall will sound his horn, calling the sons of Odin and the heroes to the battlefield. From all the corners of the world, gods, giants, dwarves, demons and elves will ride towards the huge plain of Vigrid (“battle shaker”) where the last battle will be fought. Odin will engage Fenrir in battle, and Thor will attack Jormungand. Thor will victorious, but the serpent’s poison will gradually kill the god of thunder. Surt will seek out the swordless Freyr, who will quickly succumb to the giant. The one-handed Tyr will fight the monstrous hound Garm and they will kill each other. Loki and Heimdall, age-old enemies, will meet for a final time, and neither will survive their encounter. The fight between Odin and Fenrir will rage for a long time, but finally Fenrir will seize Odin and swallow him. Odin’s son Vidar will at once leap towards the wolf and kill him with his bare hands, ripping the wolf’s jaws apart.

(^—This section confuses me a little bit. It’s a grand battle between to gods and their enemies but it doesn’t mention our involvment at all. This seems to whisper that each of these aspects rather then gods themselves will fight with each other. IE, an epic battle between good and evil, ideoligies colliding with eachother when those of us with eyes to see and ears to hear will be the ones to shed the old in a healthy manner and move on)

Then Surt will fling fire in every direction. The nine worlds will burn, and friends and foes alike will perish. The earth will sink into the sea.

(^—The 9 worlds pertain to the Tree of life Yggdrasil (the Mayans speak of this as well, which provokes me to find other traditions in Asia and in africa to find the two main tree of life folklore from these regions. If we can find these other two the wheel would be complete and we might be able to figure it out which I’ll cover in another post) The Earth sinking into the sea could be this portion of the world falling under it’s own weight much like Atlantis was claimed to do…if this is the case, I’m wondering if this isn’t a description of Atlantis that has already happened. )

After the destruction, a new and idyllic world will arise from the sea and will be filled with abundant supplies. Some of the gods will survive, others will be reborn. Wickedness and misery will no longer exist and gods and men will live happily together. The descendants of Lif and Lifthrasir will inhabit this earth.

In Norse mythology, Líf (Old Norse “life”[1]) and Lífþrasir (Old Norse “the one striving after life”[2] or “thriving remnant”[1]), female and male respectively, are two humans who are foretold to survive the events of Ragnarök by having hidden in Hoddmímis holt, and after the flames have sated, to repopulate the newly risen and fertile world. Líf and Lífthrasir are attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. Scholarly theories have been proposed about the underlining meaning and origins of the two.

I’m thinking that this may have already happened in the great flood roughly 4-5k years ago as this would have been the beginning of our current thought process designated by Adam and Eve which then tells me that perhaps the tower of Babel happened first… **teehee** But Adam and Eve are ideas or groups of people as the hebrew word Ad-hem means “Red Earth” and Eve is …well…could be the mother of our current civilization and the eating of the fruit forebodes our current affairs.

Let me explain:

I had been doing some research into the Medicine wheel and it’s involvment with the 2012 prophecies, since these traditions are almost exactly alike in most regards (Mayan-western corner designated by the color Red and earth (as in Red People) and Norse-The northern corner designated by White and Fire(white people)) I thought perhaps there had been African (being the south and black corner designated by water) and an Asian tradition (designated by Yellow and Air in the East). I’d like to find them.

Thats all i’m going to cover right now because I need to get off of here and I need to outline my other post because I think it get’s better but it correlates to this one.

Our entering into the 5th age has already happened a long time ago and the cycle has repeated itself as we are entering into a new fifth age…it’s awesome! :D

I thought most of this up in a dream once…crazy.

Any opinions would be great.
