One of the most versatile tools in any magician’s toolbox are Runes. The great thing about Rune magick is that it either works or it doesn’t, so the magician doesn’t have to worry whether a charm may go “bad” or backfire. Rune magick can be simple. It can be complex. When it works, it works wonders. When it doesn’t work, It simply doesn’t.
You can infuse the energy of runes into your being by carefully breathing and pronouncing the rune like a yoga mantra. For example if you need some energy and your are lagging you may want to call Sowelu into your essence while visualizing the rune and the sun.
A simple yet powerful charm of protection is the use of the rune Algiz. To protect your home, sacred space, person or vehicle, you can draw the rune while slowly chanting like a mantra “Al-giz” thus infusing the rune with your essence and intent. For the home, it is recommended to use on windows, and doors. You can make a decoration for your car and hang it from the rear view mirror. For your person, you can draw it on the bottom of a foot or wear it as an amulet.
Bind runes are another way of using rune magick. A bind rune is the infusion of two or more runes which amplifies the intent that much more. For example the bindrune Aegishjalmur or more commonly known as the “Helm of Awe” This particular rune was used to instill fear into the enemy and is a very powerful talisman for protection. There is a rune study group which discusses this bindrune. You can check the link here: http://runesecrets.net/group/bindrunes/forum/topics/aegishjalmur-helm-of-awe
I once “threw” Aegishjalmur at a tailgater on route 94 going into Hanover. I held the image of the rune in my mind and imagined I was on top of my car holding it in my hand. I threw it, and that person literally slammed on his breaks and kept a very safe distance from me for the remainder of the drive!
You can draw bindrunes with pencil, marker, saliva, lotion, or water. The rune does not have to be visible to work.
You can create a bindrune and tailor it for your own specific need. Be sure your intent is clear, pronunciation correct and you take your time to fully enjoy your experience.
