I asked Orismen for Ansuz, a rune that was highlighted to me the moment I opened a page with the descriptions of the runes (I’ve never worked with them so had no clue what it meant and was thus unbiased). As I read the description I noticed it resonated with what I was working at and looking for at this time and went with it without doubt.
Order, gods, Odin, transmission of intelligence, communication, reason, inspiration, language, breath, sound, origins of language, the Voice of the Universe, spellsong, casting, chanting, ancestors, passing of the breath along the ancestral line, evolution of gods, speech, poetry, discussion of runes, memetics, semiotics, etymology, linguistics.
What I asked Orismen
"I’m looking to get a stronger balance between the perspective of man and the world of spirit, meaning that right now I have the ability and the skill to switch perspectives but it’s giving me some really bad headaches and breakdowns in return (meant figuratively, not literal). I’m also looking to incorporate a third eye-ish vision into the daily experience, seeing more and more of the design of the divine incorporated in what we perceive as the mundane."
One of the things I was never interested in is gematria (numerology), while people like Nassim Haramein and certain Magickal reports convinced me that numbers can be used to deduce the very cornerstone nature of things my lack of mathematical basics dissuaded me from ever doing anything with it.
Today I open the Balg forums to check up on some things and see a topic called “fun with numbers”, I click on it for no real good reason, the topic doesn’t resonate but clicking stuff seems to go effortlessly sometimes doesn’t it?
I read through it and find the concept amusing but don’t see all that much in it until I see the results for the numerical counterparts to “United States”. This is so insanely spot on that I can’t help but click the link to that leads to the website that calculates numerical values of a word or sentence and then returns words that have a similar value. My mind almost exploded.
The woman I’m with has recently dyed her hair bright red. Ariel hair she calls it, which was always something she always wanted to do since she is a bit mermaid obsessed. She’s also keeps talking about escaping the country we live in and getting a place at the beach, the purest escapsim but it is her dream nonetheless. As I go through the results I see “Ariel”, “beach”, “move” from top to bottom.
She’s also been having dreams of Egyptian deities, mostly Hathor. As I read through the results I see “Atum” (Egyptian personification of infinity) and various Deities from that paradigm.
It was like her past, present and potentials are at least partially contained in the apparently NOT random name she was given. I don’t have to tell you guys how interesting this is for magicians. I myself changed my name at one point in time and as I compare them via this method I see traits and potentials of the old me versus how I perceive myself now. If I type in my magickal name that was suggested to me by the spirits things get even weirder.
Long story short, I wanted a bridge to make certain abtract things more understandable and I got it. It’s likely not an easy thing to explore in-depth but hey, it’s still ask and thy shall receive. It also ties in perfectly with my experimentation with sigils and how symbolism influences the unconscious.
Here’s the links:
So uhm…Orismen… that device. Just how does that work?
