[quote=“necromaster, post:1, topic:490”]Recently I have been trying to get back to my Norse roots so I bought a runeband and a necklace that I’m hoping will aid me in this. My only problem is I know nothing about charging runes… Exactly how would I charge these runes and do they differ from sigils?
The runes on the necklace are bindrunes[/quote]
I used this to charge a charm i got from her website, which has a lotta great info on Runes.
Pray or do a personal ritual to consecrate each individual charm to charge it with its purpose. If the charm symbol is not charged, it is merely an interesting design, not a talisman. I have described a consecration below.
Call upon the power of God/dess, the Universal Life Force, or whatever is appropriate for your beliefs. Invite also your lineal ancestors, especially those who worked magick in their own lives, your power animal allies, local land spirits or any other wights you may wish to have present.
I’m a Reiki Master, so I use Reiki to charge charms. Reiki is channeled Universal Life Force; i.e. Qi, Ki, God-power. Certain techno-mages use devices called “orgone generators” to do much the same thing.
Visualize and verbalize the purpose of the charm. Giving image, sound, and words to your desired outcome puts the magic forth into the realm of reality and loosens the power of creation. Never use “no” or “not” in the verbalization. (Capriciously the gods and our subconcious minds do not hear the words “no” or “not” and will implement the opposite!) Verbalize the intent in positive words. Say it aloud! Sent it forth!
Put several drops of blood from pricking your finger with a sterilized needle or lancet and mix it with red ochre, acrylic paint, or red India ink. Draw over the symbol with the blood as you verbalize the charm’s intent. (For the squeamish, leave out the blood and just symbolically “blood” the runes with henna, ochre, paint, ink or a marking pen.)
The consecration ritual may include burning a paper copy of the charm. However, keep another copy to carry with you.
You may use the Galdr sounds of runes contained within the runescript or bindrune. Look closely and you will recognize some shapes. When you have galdored the last rune, galdr the ALU (Ansuz-Laguz-Uruz) formula “Ahhhhlllluuu!” (meaning “It is sealed, so mote it be”) over the rune set.
These symbols also make excellent focus points for meditation. The meditation will then set you on your path toward your desired goal.
Carry the charm with you in a pocket or in your wallet. Lay it under your pillow or on your night table when you sleep.
