Gullinbursti ('Golden Bristle'), in Norse Mythology, is Freyr's golden boar, which represents male sexuality and stamina. It is one of the many gifts, including Thor's Hammer (Mjölnir), and Odin's Spear (Gungnir), which the gods only got due to Loki's dangerous bet wit the dwarfs. Without Loki, the gods would have been virtually powerless, and Asgard undefended by it's wall too! Hail Loki!

OP: "I hear this as a chant..." Traditionally, the thunder is said to be Thor's hammer, striking his anvil and the lightning is the sparks from his anvil. (I use lightning to represent Thor here, too.) However, my great-grandfather taught my mother that "The thunder is Thor's hammer and the lightning is Odin's spear." She used to listen to the thunder and absorb the energy she felt from the storm. She lived to be 93. I guess something worked....

Odin's symbol is the Valknut, the symbol for creation, preservation, and destruction. "I know that I hung on a windy tree nine long nights, wounded with a spear, dedicated to Odin, myself to myself, on that tree of which no man knows from where its roots run." (Odin in the Havamal, a collection of Old Norse poems from the Viking age).

tatteredbanners: The Úlfhéðnar (singular Úlfhéðinn), mentioned in the Vatnsdœla saga, Haraldskvæði and the Völsunga saga, were said to wear the pelt of a wolf when they entered battle. Úlfhéðnar are sometimes described as Odin’s special warriors, with the pelt from a wolf and a spear as distinguishing features.
