Norse God Loki - The Misunderstood God - Lokean Worship

The Norse God Loki, pronounced “LOAK-ee;” Old Norse Loki, is the trickster god of Norse mythology. While treated as a nominal member of the gods, Loki occupies a highly ambivalent and ultimately unique position among the gods, giants, and the other kinds of spiritual beings that populate the pre-Christian Norse religion. His familial relations attest to this. His father is the giant Farbauti. His mother is Laufey, a giantess, or something else entirely. The surviving sources are silent on this point. Loki is the father, by the giantess Angrboda, of Hel, the goddess of the underworld; Jormungand, the great serpent who slays Thor during Ragnarok; and Fenrir the wolf. With his consort Sigyn, he also has a son named Nari or Narfi, whose name might mean “Corpse.” The tales of Loki in Norse Mythology show him as scheming and sometimes giving a lack of concern for others. But this is only one facet of Loki. He is a lot deeper then people tend to give him credit for. In modern days people worship Loki, and they call themselves Lokeans. Some dedicate themselves to him through being a Godspouse. And then some, like us, honor him as a friend. In the attached videos you'll hear both Melody & Dwayne's opinions and perceptions of Loki.
