Hey BALG (If any of you wonder why I start most posts this way I think it sounds like Buster form Arrested Development, it amuses me to do so)
So I have noticed that I am starting to get a little out of wack. Nothing major, just that doing a lot of sorcery does that to me. After some mediation on the subject, communing with my spirits and the wise words of many of you on here I came to realize that I need more internal work.
Think of it like magical weightlifting.
After more consideration I decided to work with the spirituality of my ancestors as a way to honor them and strengthen my connection with them. Runes play a big part of it. Runes are just as connected to us internally as they are connected to the external world.
So here is what I am going to do.
Everyday, for the next 24 days. I will get out of bed and meditate on a rune. I will scry it, intone it, and meditate on its principals through out the day. I will feel its energy and get a sense of not only what it is about but what it truly means in a personal sense. Exercises like this can be found in “Taking Up the Runes” by Diana Paxton.
Of course I will petition my spirits for guidance and protection, but here is where ya’ll come in.
I am going to be posting my results and findings here. I would love for those who work with runes to give me some feedback. Of course I ask that we keep it respectful and any criticism constructive. I don’t mind something like “Hey Orismen, I think you are off a bit (or a lot). Gebo is _____ not _____ and here is why I say that.” but if it is “NO YOU DUMB MOTHER FUCKER. YOU ARE WROOOONG!!!” then please kindly refrain from posting.
Thank you and much love,
