Goddess Hel

I don't think I've shared this before but I've had it as a favourite on my Youtube channel for a while. This video has been on my mind lately, perhaps as I sink into some deeper place, closer to Her realm. There are fewer distractions here and I desire something a little more primal.

The song is 'Hel Goddess of the Underworld' by Hagalaz Runedance.

The Goddess Hel, for your information, is the Norse Goddess of the underworld and she reigns over a place called Helheim. It is not the same place as the Christian hell, although I think they may have gotten the name from it.

Helheim is an alternative to Valhalla to spend the afterlife. People good and bad alike go there. It is not reserved for anyone special. Warriors go to Valhalla, all others go to Helheim.

I love Hel/Hela. She's one of my favorite Norse Goddesses. And I love Hagalaz Runedance! I can trance out to their songs so easily. Awesome post. :)
