I dearly love Bindrunes. Each rune in the Futhark has vibrational resonance, and when combined together in a meaningful fashion, that resonance can be directed and increased. Protective power of some kind is a common theme, as is balance and immanence. We’re all extensions of Source Energy. It’s our essence that has no beginning and no end. Our natural state is a blending of energies in Oneness and runes point the way to that remembrance. As the vibrational frequency of Gaia rises, understanding this truth is critical. Our focus must now be in raising our collective energy, our collective vibration. Powerful symbols such as Bindrunes assist in that focus.
Update: I’ve added more bindrunes at the end of the post..
A shielding bindrune is used to protect the individual from the energy that naturally flows from others. Empaths in particular find carrying some sort of talisman helps shield themselves from energy that’s vampiric in nature. Crystals are also great to carry as well. I carry both. This bindrune is comprised of Uruz (Strength), Algiz (Protection), Berkano (Purity), Thurisaz (Protection), Dagaz (Clarity), and Tiwaz (Warrior). Yes, I got carried away. Typically, unless you’re creating a person’s name in a bindrune, you would use three at most. But it depends upon the need, and that day I was feeling inundated and overwhelmed by others’ energies so it ended up resembling a shield.
Next up, a more specific bindrune for dealing with vampiric energy. Sometimes we find that others are drawn to us and we’re always listening to someone’s issue or relationship problem, or whatever else they might want to share. Total strangers will tell me the most personal stories, you know, in the check out line at the grocery store, in the waiting room of the doctor’s office, pretty much anywhere really. That’s what happens when one is an empath. If you don’t like it, then don’t go around people. The type of vampiric energy that this bindrune deals with is more direct vampiric energy, intentional in nature and extraordinarily uncomfortable. Created from Sowilo (Victory), Algiz (Protection) and Eihwaz (Defense), this bindrune brings all elemental energies together, specifically targeting the boundary issues these people seem to have, protecting the wearer from unwanted attacks. Through Eihwaz, it invokes and preserves the wearer’s spiritual alignment, reinforced by Algiz, the rune of Higher Power. Sowilo, the rune of Light, Energy and Revelation increases the effect, binding all three together in victory. It speaks to the fact that as we stay in alignment with Source, we “need do nothing” as A Course in Miracles would say. This bindrune serves as that reminder.
Binding Negative Behavior is a bindrune used both in spellwork and for carrying on one’s person when it’s necessary to bind someone’s negative behavior from affecting you anymore. It sits on the altar during a binding ritual, increasing the effectiveness of that ritual. It can then be carried in the pocket when around the person in question as a protection talisman. Created from Tiwaz (Warrior) and Algiz (Protection), and symbolizes our elemental connection between Earth and Spirit. The energy flows toward Source, assisting the witch in remaining in alignment and resonance, where nothing of this world can enter.
Thurisaz breathes new life into the relationship with its blending with Raidho (Inner Journey) and Laguz (Water). Encouraging healthy communication is the focus of this positive bindrune. Instead of protection, it indicates going with the flow, while Thurisaz suggests that we let go of what no longer serves us. Raidho allows a change in our thinking as we co-create better relationships together. New beginnings are ahead!
With Healing, we address the balance it takes to remain healthy. Tiwaz (Warrior), promising quick recuperation, gives us the impetus or warrior spirit to heal whatever befalls us, whether physical, emotional or spiritual in nature. Dagaz (Clarity, New Day) instructs us transformation back to health is possible as we achieve balance. Useful in healing ritual work, this healing bindrune focuses Divine energy, infusing healing potential into energy raised and projected.
Lastly, this Balance bindrune joins Algiz (Higher Power) with Wunjo (Harmony) and Eihwaz (Defense). Wunjo is the balancer between Algiz and Eihwaz, blending both one’s Higher Self with the physical body’s natural need for self-defense. Wunjo is also the rune of the Law of Attraction. As we attract the energy we focus upon (doesn’t matter if it’s good or bad), Wunjo brings harmony and joy to the situation so that we view it with the clarity that alignment with Source brings. Essentially, Wunjo is the balance between the two polarities that allows the individual to see through the eyes of Source, drawing upon the inner, more expansive Spirit to provide the clarity to see that we “need do nothing”. Perception gives way as we stand in our own truth.
We are One with Source. We are not the bodies that seem to exist. We are Spirit, in Oneness with All That Is. A piece of our attention is here, focused into a physical existence while the remaining, more expansive piece exists blended together in Oneness. Bindrunes reflecting this immanence serve not only as a focus for this awareness but also as a reminder of who we actually are.
Source Energy blends Sowilo with Fehu. Sowilo, the rune of Light, Energy and Revelation combines with Fehu, the rune of Wealth to illustrate that our true wealth lies in our extension as Source Energy. As the “sending” rune, Fehu speaks to who we are as we incarnate into this life, with Sowilo providing the clarity that lights our way as we extend abundance and love as we follow our soul’s path.
As we go forward in life, Gebo and Laguz are used in this bindrune depicting Alignment with Source. Gebo is the rune of balanced energy exchange while Laguz encourages us to go with the flow. The bindrune focuses us into the now, the present moment, where alignment happens. We’re not distracted by anything that is not of Source. Past and future are of the ego and remaining in alignment with Source keeps us moving forward in a positive direction.
Engaging with our Higher Power is the focus of this bindrune. Sowilo and Algiz are joined to increase awareness of our Higher Self, allowing that connection with Source to flow through us as we engage with the physical world.
Along with the Higher Power bindrune, Allowing reminds us that resistance is of the ego and of the physical world, and when acting through our Higher Self it allows us to perceive without judgment, instead moving around whatever doesn’t resonate with our Higher Self. Alignment with our Higher Self brings into resonance the Oneness with others through the joining of Laguz and Dagaz, that we could be feeling, instead of focusing upon ego related responses that foster resistance. Staying in the flow, Laguz, of one’s Higher Power is true Allowing. Dagaz reveals that only truth surrounding the ego is hidden, whereas all truth is revealed in alignment with Source. Drop resistance and simply allow..
Sowilo, Ansuz, Eihwaz, and Algiz were blended to represent Divinity. Source Energy, Protection, Higher Power, Life Force all comprise our Immanence with the Divine. With the addition of Ansuz, we have the blending of Divine Wisdom into the other attributes, bringing further balance to the energies.
I love that expression, as above so below. It says everything about our experience here in this life. We are to express ourselves while here as extensions of Source Energy. We become confused about that as children when we’re shaped by the world around us, becoming more and more reactive to whatever is happening at the moment. Eventually, we’re so immersed in all that drama that we become victims of our self-created illusions. This bindrune helps us remember that our true essence is one of Spirit and that all the loving energy emanating from Source should emanate from us as we progress through our lifetimes here. Loving intention would be another name for this bindrune.
Well, that about does it..oh, the center bindrune is my witch name..it’s there because I created these bindrunes. Witch names are a secret, known only to one’s coven. Since I’m solitary, it’s known only to me. ‘Tis the rules..
~ Blessed Be the Runes!
