The Dictionary.com meaning of Freedom.
Today I speak to why he means freedom. Remember these are my PERSONAL thoughts no one else’s. My personal thoughts on this manner. How I see and interpret things.
Fenris according to lore was chained because he was ‘dangerous’ to his own family and other peoples. He was chained because of a vision. Remember the future is never set in stone. It only seems that way if you think you know what is going on with it. If you think the future is going one way. You try and change it and it still happens. You wrote what your future is going to be, you created your future. Let us think about this for a moment. Odin tried to ‘change’ the future by chaining Fenris. When it did not change the future at all. Fenris still rained down havoc on his father’s blood family. No one escaped from that alive. I personally still wonder what would have happened if Fenris was never chained. That thought is for another day.
Freedom, Fenris represents all those who have been bound in one way or another. He represents all those who seek freedom from chains. These chains can be made of anything. The chains could be of addiction, sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, anything that keeps us from reaching what we are supposed to be.
He represents the feelings when reclaiming our freedom. The anger, the rage, the relief that we are now free. Free to make our way and to make our choices to see out vengeance or healing. In representing freedom he also takes on the ability to make choices to choose your own path and not act as if all paths are predestined.
Fenris is freedom from the chains that we wear everyday. He represents our spirits and minds held within own chains and our will to break them.
