The Helm of awe

Helm of Awesome is a name that just popped in my head one day. I have been attracted to the symbol Helm of Awe for some time now and wear it on a ring nearly every day. So I grabbed the domain, and thought someday I would turn it into something. To my pleasant surprise, this site has received lots of traffic from the get go.

It is a symbol to which I was naturally drawn. It is simple and mysterious, but it has a great meaning behind it. It sort of works as a subtle message to others who follow the Asatru beliefs, and it really is more belief than religion. Honestly its complicated and I feel it has vastly different meanings for different people. I wear it on a ring just about every day, and get a lot of comments and questions on it. I have been surprised how many know what it is and how many even have tattoos of the Helm of Awe. It is a symbol that evokes confidence, strength and a connection to nature, through the Asatru beliefs.
