The Circle of Jörmungandr: The Power of the Ouroboros
In Order to Transcend Human Limitations The Power of the Ouroboros must be harnessed.
Everyone is familiar with the serpent that consumes its own tail. Commonly known as the Ouroboros, it is a being that perpetuates itself by consuming itself.
In the Norse myths, this serpent takes on the name of Jörmungandr (AKA as the Midgard serpent). The middle child of Loki and Angrboða, the serpent surrounds Midgard. When Jörmungandr releases his tail, it is said the world shall end.
While this myth has many insights that can be applied to the world and our esoteric understanding of it, the myth also leads us to a magical principle to create a self-feeding circle of power for ourselves. This is what we will focus on here.
The serpent we want to create and embody in ourselves consists of three parts; the head, the body, and the tail… and like Jörmungandr it feeds itself.
These three parts are the physical, the mental, and the spiritual. Honing in on one, inadvertently affects the other. By going after physical strength, we prepare ourselves mentally. As we endeavor to increase our mental strength, we nonetheless, prepare ourselves spiritually. Our spiritual ascension feeds back into growing our physical capabilities. The victory is being able to sustain this loop ad infintim, spiraling upwards towards the gods.
If one is unable to maintain the power of the Ouroboros, then the circle is broken, and like in the myth of the Jörmungandr, the world is destroyed. Not exactly the outside world, per se, but the world that was created within the loop. The inside world you crafted. The world that would have forged a pathway to the gods.
