But seriously, time and time again I come back to the protective teaching force of Algiz, the inspired poetry and persuasive magic of Ansuz, and the ability of Inguz to plant tiny seeds in the hearts and minds of others.
I should go so far as to say that those three runes most define me.
Glamor and Casting is so every day that it is easy to under value the amount of power we through around everyday. The power of our words and the ease at which we can cast our moods and temperaments on to others.
Algiz is often used as a defensive Rune, but have you ever tried giving Algiz to a friend or even a stranger passing by? Seeing how we are already using runic powers in or daily world can be a map to greater potency.
I see Gebo in you. Gebo is a bind rune of two Isa, Two equally rigid forces embracing; where they connect is a friction of energetic flow at the meeting of two Kenaz, like to worriers back to back X Gebo is open on four sides. Gebo's root can mean both to give and to take. Balancing the many runic emerges that we are confronted with from day to day
I see Ansuz firmly rooted in your dialectic skills and this site and your book are evidence of Ingwaz.
Seeing runes in paintings tels me that you are dialogging in runic thought with the world around you. Your Glamor or hide may be the most difficult to see as the world is your mirror. Such is the artistes mind. Both madness and genius can arise out of such dialog. You are a gift to this site.
I like the phrasing of the day to day or moment to moment use.
I relate to it like this: we use gravity all the time. It's just something that's there. We take it for granted. But if we want to build an airplane or climb a mountain, then we have to become much more intricately aware of the forces and principles we're dealing with if we can ever hope for the incredible results we want.
Loclynn, you make me blush... lol
Really thank you for what you say here but I see that the only gift from something to something is the Runes from Universe to us and we just pay it back.
The cloudy border between madness and, preferably, "direct" knowledge is something that I have faced when I communicate with Eihwaz. Tyriel had warned me once, so I am approaching it carefully.
I like your thought about Algiz as well. There are people that need it more than us.
