I was thinking intensely about an issue that had been bothering me, and while I was wishing things would go my way, all of a sudden in my mind an image popped up out of nowhere in my mind, I recognized it as one of the Icelandic Staves but I don’t really have any knowledge on any of them or how to use them. So I looked up the Icelandic Staves to search for the one I saw and it most closely resembles the Ægishjálmur stave, and doing some research on it, it seems it actually fits exactly what I was thinking about and what was bothering me, so I would like to know where I can find more information on how to use them, any books or websites would be appreciated.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I though Ægishjálmur to be a “bindrune”.
I think of a stave as a long line with the runes attached as if along a staff (stave = staff), more like how ogham is writen.
Not a lot is known about Ægishjálmur, the “helm of awe”, it was worn on the forehead as a ward to bedazzle and weaken enemies in battle, but there’s not many records of it’s use.
I like youtubers Arith Harger (Swedish practicing mage), and Jackson Crawford (scholar, poetry and language) for practical and scholarly info on Norse magick. Also Freia Norling, a practicing Nordic Volva.
Gasp I love them!
As for the Aegishjalmur I’ve personally used it to ward off negative magick, protection and in visualization to weaken people
I’d love to rent her cabin out one day, and do nothing but sit out and seethe in the wild-lands of Arctic Norway for a week. That would be my kind of retreat.
