As long as I can remember I have been a fan of Thor, The God of THUNDER and Lightning. He was the Nordic God representing Justice and Protection.

I have a cast pewter Mjollnir, his hammer, hanging from a chain in my ride.

I don't collect Thor memorabilia, I don't collect anything. This hammer is enough.

I also have...
a small plaster Egyptian Cat head made by my eldest daughter,
a small plush bear from my second daughter and
a Briar Bear from my son.


I know that people ride with objects that mean something to them. What do you have and why is it there?

It's a dragon (duh) and a pentagram (I'm pagan)

It usually depends on the orientation of the star within the circle. When the star is oriented with a single point at the top, like in SD's picture, it's usually associated with pagans. A pentagram where the star has two points at the top (upside down with respect to the one is SD's picture) is often used by satanic groups. Note that I used the words 'usually' and 'often' as this may not always be the case. I've seen various symbols like these misused often by dumb kids that decide they want to be a pagan, satanist, wiccan, etc. because they think it's 'cool'.

From my understanding, I don't think that much of that is accurate. There is a spiritual belief, just not a traditional structured religion. The Native North Americans could be considered Pagan, but they are very spiritual in their own way.

It really doesn't matter for the purpose of the thread. I think that it's great that we have people from all beliefs here.

A totem can be just a good luck item or something sentimental. I used to ride my mountain bike with the Mojllinar wrapped on the handlebar as I hammered the trails.

Edit: And what SD just posted. :D

Hey soop, I don't want to stray to far from the topic of your thread (and I'll be adding to it later).

I don't think you have to be religious to be spiritual....

Shadow, it sounds like you follow something that used to be called "Druidism".... but without the sacrifices.:)

It's different for every individual, there is no "right way" as long as you seek to do good all will be fine for you. I almost didn't want to post in here cause I don't wish to spark a debate (which we haven't gotten into yet), but I didn't want soop sitting here all lonely like cause no-one responded to his thread either. heh.

My original dragon did have a sword with a ruby in the hilt but the wing broke off :(

My daughter insisted that "Sneaky" the Beanie Baby Leopard had to ride with me on the dash. Kind of ironic having a cat guarding the bird.
