Back to the Myth!
Out of many Mythology I ever read, Greek Myth, Roman Myth, Egypt Myth, Norse Myth is the most I love one. And this time I’m going to tell you about Bifrost. 😉
In Norse Mythology, there are 9 realms on Yggdrasil (The World Tree), they believe that the root will lead you to the Svaltarheim the realm of dwarves and dark elves, down to Niflhel the realm of the dead, then Niflheim the realm of Ice and Muspellheim the realm of Fire. The horizontal branch will lead you to the Midgard the realm of man, Jotunheim the realm of Giant. The vertical branch will lead you to Alfheim the realm of Elves, Vanaheim the realm of Vanir, Asgard the realm of God.
So here the story goes, Loki was blamed for the dead of Baldr, the God of Light, over a mistletoe incident. And Skadi, the God of forest put him locked under a serpent mouth which poison keep dripping off. However he able to escape. The day Loki escape from Asgard, the battle to catch him broke the bifrost. (You can see this scene on the Movie Thor too, but in a twist story)
Thats why if in the past you keep hearing that the God come here and there, and you never ever heard about it anymore now. Because the bridge was broken due to that incident, so God unable to come down and say hi to us anymore. If you believe so hahahahah.
And the description of bifrost is similiar to the description of Rainbow. Old people believe that when the rainbow appear in the sky it means that God is having a walk down here visiting us. 😉
