In this article, we will talk about Mjolnir Thor Hammer and try to dissect what it's all about. The story behind it and why it is necessary to wear.
WHO IS THOR?
In Norse mythology, Thor is the god of Thunder, Lightning, Storms, Oak Trees, and Strength. He is also the protector of mankind and has healing and fertility skills.
Thor is one of the most prominent figures in Norse mythology. He was the son of Odin and Fyorgyn, the earth goddess. Thor was considered the storm-weather god of sky and thunder and also a fertility god. His wife was called Sif, a goddess also linked to fertility. There is much more to Thor than this, but in this article, we'll talk about his hammer. Mjölnir!
WHAT DOES MJÖLNIR MEAN?
Thor's hammer, Mjölnir, is very special. Thor was the animating spirit of the storm, and thunder was experienced as being the sound of his hammer crashing down on his foes. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that the Old Norse name for his hammer, Mjöllnir, probably meant “Lightning”. The side of the hammer carries the inscription: "Whosoever holds this hammer if he is worthy, will own the power of Thor."
Mjölnir actually means "That who smash" and that should paint a picture of what this hammer is all about. Smashing. It doesn't matter if it's mountains, orcs or other enemies. Mjölnir will smash it. When Thor throws the hammer, it never misses. Never! And it always returns to his hand.
THOR'S HAMMER AS A PENDANT
The Vikings were very fond of making Thor's Hammer Pendants. People found more than 50 Mjölnir amulets throughout Scandinavia. Most of them are from year 900 to 1100. The pendants of Thor's Hammer give people strength and protection from dangerous things.
People would wear both Wooden and Metal Mjölnir pendants. Often along with other necklaces as well. At the end of the era, it wasn't unusual to wear both the Christian cross and a Thors Hammer at the same time.
WHEN SHOULD YOU WEAR A THORS HAMMER PENDANT?
