Thank you for the article well since you ask im intrested in the father of giants ymir i think ,suttong , nott , skrymir , hugi and the sauare’s giants i want to acess the full potencial of the square . E.a says when they are summoned they start making noise damn i have to summon them somewhere else i use the rooftop as a ritual space for most workings they wake up the neigboors :3
I think they’ll be making non-physical ‘noise’ - no-one will hear unless they are both clairaudient and listening in on the same frequency you are
I’ve only worked with Surtr - EAs fire ritual, Loki and Angrboda so far. Mostly Angrboda.
I don’t use squares but I wouldn’t recommend mixing methods from different currents before being comfortable with the techniques from both. I have E.A.s Norse Magik course and at no point does he recommend Jewish ritual methods to contact them. Since the Jewish offshoot, xtianity, is responsible for largely wiping out Norse paganism and murdering it’s peoples, (the viking raids were a response to xtian invasion, not the other way around) I’d tread very carefully there. The Norse entities have a lot of, ah, personality, and can be quick to be offended.
But the ‘giants’ are basically anthropomorphized forces of nature so maybe they don’t care.
The best source is to read the Eddas yourself. The scholar Jackson Crawford has my favourite translations so far, and he recaps and explains some of the Eddas on his YT channel that has his name.
Arith Harger’s YT channel is both spiritual and scholarly
Nott is the night personified. Not a Jotun but a Goddess.
(But Loki is both, so… I don’t think it’s all that fixed anyway, Snorri’s version was a snapshot of an ever-evolving system that was also heavity edited with a xtian bent)
@Mulberry thank you for the links . Amm sorry for asking what do you mean by jewish ritual ? Is there a different system for norse summonings ? I was planning on following the elementary principles maybe ask raziel for assistance and call the giant of my choise. The only 2 systems i know of are e.a’s system witch is my primery and the pathworking witch uses visualization for summonings. Different persinality what do you mean if i evoke one normally and act with respect isent that enough ?
@Velenos was waithing for you how would you desrcibe them as spirits compared to angels and demons? Also do they have any rivalitys that youre aware of ? Also anakim is a name of a spirit or a team ?
@Son-of-Serpentine ymir is intresting however i dont know what hes goals are same for the giants. For me to walk my path with a spirit i must know what its intentions are both in general and to me thats a rule i faithfully aply . I cant tell why im suddently intrested in learning for spirits in a pantheon i dont know but im determined to evoke at least one and have a conversation just so i know where they stand on my path
I consider the Jotun to be the equivilent of primordial and titan Gods as they were the ancestors of the Aesir and the primordial forces of nature. So I would describe them as part of the race of Gods.
