The Aunurian path
Aunuri beliefs in short.
The belief system in Aunuri may seem unrealistic and too idealistic to some.


Aunuri pantheon system is flexible.

In Aunuri there is the belief that there are different powerful entities in the universe, gods created by the first one.

Gods and goddesses in Aunuri belief is universal called "old ones" due to their age and the first one is just called "the first one".
Aunuri, unlike most other beliefs, allow the follower to call for the god or goddess in their own way.
One Aunuri may call on the god of war as "Ares" while an another call for it as "Seth" and a thirth Aunurian may call for it as "Thraxas, the fiery butterfly destroyer".

In Aunuri its not believed that the gods names (if they have names) is known by man and that the practioner can summon the desired god or goddess with a name or ritual made by the practioner him/herself.

It can be done with a word, tone on your music instrument or just through concentration and visualization.


The magical beliefs is the same as the pantheon beliefs

There are no "real" way to use magic since magic is built on thought, will and belief.
So in short...if you want it to happen, it will happen. (Maybe not that simple, but you know what I mean...)


You may draw a rune and want it to stand for something, but it wont be energized without you programming it.


Aunuri belief is alot about helping each other, its not a path which you can walk just to call your god of war "Bob".
Note that you shall not in any way ridicule the gods, call them a name that feel right.

Aunurians should help humans and otherkin alike if there is a need for it.


An Aunuri as person must be flexible and ready to change.
I encourage honor, but I strongly discourage pride.

An Aunuri should not be naive or small-minded.

You shouldnt look down on other beliefs or discourage people from doing what they want.

You can see Aunurians as protectors and counselors.


Also, an Aunurian should know how to defend him/herself.
Martial arts and combat training basics should be part of any Aunurians "what-to-do list".

However, Aunurians should never fight if it can be avoided through diplomatic means.


One of the standards of the Aunurian path is basic knowledge of Aunuro'makata, the Aunurian language.

Why there are an Aunurian language?

Because its cool. Tongue

Nah, the reason why there are an Aunurian language is simple.
An Aunurian should be able to speak to an another Aunurian wether he/she is an American, Russian or Marsian.

Then, only the basic Aunurian terminology is needed for an iniate, but a more experienced Aunurian should know the language well.

Its there to unite Aunurians and it have several other benefits.


One another standard is the basics in Kayedre, Aunurian talisman crafting.

I dont want to release too much about it since its still under the looking glass.


As you can see...Aunuri is a path of balance, neutrality and understanding.
An Aunurian have order, peace and creation in one hand and chaos, war and destruction in the other.



This is just a short and basic overview of the Aunurian path, not everything is described here.

Anyone can research its content, otherkin or human doesnt matter.

But it should not be treaded lightly as a path, it have high standards and the person must be flexible and strong in mind to not get lost or misled.


Be nice to me and dont whack me for my beliefs, just want to tell you my spiritual path. T_T

Sounds a lot like eclectic paganism to me...

Sames. Although so do alot of open ended paths untill you get bogged down in particulars.

Laiko: would you call Aunuri a religion, a general belief system or a philosophy with an open spirituality?

Re: The Aunurian path
I'm definitely liking the point of view about names and runes and things not having a meaning beyond what you decide it to be.

I've been of the theory that you could give someone a scroll to read and tell them it is a good luck ritual, and if they read it aloud after casting a circle they'll have good fortune. It would have the same effect if it were a "true" spell or a recipe for macaroni and cheese that was translated into Latin.

The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.

Re: The Aunurian path
Where did this path originate from? Who founded it or expounded on the list of virtues and rules you listed? Is it a modern path? Was it practiced in ancient times under a different name? What cultures? How do Anurians agree on what is supposed to be believed in or practiced? Is there an authority? Written books held sacred? Any famous Anurians we might know?

In short, please provide some more details on this very interesting topic. I've never heard of it.

It would have the same effect if it were a "true" spell or a recipe for macaroni and cheese that was translated into Latin.

This is true largely because, when somebody believes something like this, they are creating their own magic, since they add their own energy to make it happen (even if there is no energy in the scroll itself, the act of reciting it promotes your own energy being used for that purpose). There's also the whole psychological aspect of, once you incant a "good-luck" spell, you will notice all of the good things that happen in your life, and you will attribute it to that spell, even if nothing different actually happens at all.

However... there are quite possibly cases where this doesn't apply. With my own experience of using items as a medium for certain... "blessings", it is very much possible that some genuine scrolls *do* have an effect on the outcome. Typically, though, such things aren't made for trivial matters such as "good fortune"... are they? It seems like a waste of parchment to make it easier to do something that was already easy to do in the first place =/.

But, yes, I also largely agree with you, too. When working with words and runes and such that haven't been infused, it's basically no more than a means to focus your intent on a specific thing. For some people, this makes it easier to direct energy, etc. towards that goal.

I cant claim that the Aunurian path is ancient or say that there are others, I really dont know.

I have a theory that you cant save everything from your past life and that I choosed to save parts of the culture from my past life.

I mean...the words to the Aunurian language appear when im in the same state of mind as when I draw the spiritual pictures that just appear when I let my hand follow my mind instead of my will.

The Aunurian path may as well be a new path as it may be a fragment of the culture I lived in my past life.

Alot of research to do, good that I start at such young age. Tongue

Need to read about it, there are so many paths out there. >.<

Lets see...

Basic Aunuri concepts can be taken in and studied by anyone.

However, Advanced Aunuri is more of a religion and im going to update you when more things actually make sense.

For me its a way in life and by letting it grow inside me I can evolve.

Re: The Aunurian path
Eclectic paganism isn't exactly a set path...it's a "path" where you basically pick and choose what "fits" for you from other pagan paths, world religions, etc. It's basically different for everyone...you believe and practice what works for you and toss what doesn't. It's like those choose your own adventure books...only with spirituality.
