The concept for Ravens Wyrd came to me one night while I was browsing other pagan message boards. I saw the infighting. I saw pagans of one particular path tell other pagans they were wrong. I saw them tell each other that their path wasn't a true path and never would be. I saw Wiccans telling other Wiccans that they weren't Wiccan! It was enough to make my head hurt.
I have friends who believe in all manner of paths. I have a friend who's a Buddhist monk. I have a friend who's a grey witch. I have yet another friend who is a youth pastor for a Christian church. I think you get the idea here. I have friends from all walks of life and we get along great. We accept each other. So I wanted a home for all those paths. A safe place where everyone could share their thoughts, their knowledge and wisdom, their paths with everyone without feeling persecuted because they're different.
So I started Ravens Wyrd. I'm slowly adding more articles as I write them. I can't wait until we get some other contributors here to write they're views. I love learning about other paths. I want this to be a home for people. The more the merrier!
Wyrd is the path one travels in life. Everything that you have been, are now or ever will be. Ravens Wyrd is a home for people from all paths. Pagan, Wiccan, Witch, Therian, Shamanic, Empathic, Otherkin, Energy Worker, and many others. Whatever path you walk, you are welcome. Ravens Wyrd is a community dedicated to learning and teaching about different paths. Ravens Wyrd named for Odin's ravens, Hugin and Munin, is a place to express thought, share experiences, teach others the knowledge you've acquired or to learn something new. We encourage everyone to respect each other and each others' paths.
Hugin and Munin (Norse, “thought” and “memory”) are the twin ravens of Norse mythology. They are the servants of the Norse All-Father, Odin. According to legend, they are sent out each morning and report back to Odin each evening on the happenings of the world.
Wyrd is Anglo-Saxon in origin and means 'to become' or 'to turn'; literally meaning 'that which has turned' or 'that which has become'. Wyrd can be thought of as becoming something new, on a new path, while still being able to see that which has passed before back to the beginning and incorporating that into the present. Wyrd is like a giant web, each decision or action is a string tied to your past and present, eventually shaping the way to your future becoming the whole picture of a web. Wyrd is the path one travels in life. Everything that you have been, are now or ever will be.
