With my first Bindrune, my goal is to break through the everyday mind in order to get through to our most primal selves. When I say "primal," in a sense I'm talking about our shadow-selves, the part of our minds we bury and lock up, because of the constraints society places upon us. It is the part of us that yearns to get back in touch with mother nature, and live in harmony with her rhythms, while being free of the constraints said society puts upon us. The other part of the bindrune helps us reconnect with mother nature. And for this, I've chosen:
1) Thurs: The rune of the Thursar, or giants, the figures in Norse myth that symbolize the most primal forces of the creation and destruction of the universe. This is the rune that is supposed to help the person break through their everyday selves and get in touch with their most primal selves.
2) Fehu: I know that Fehu is a rune of wealth, but when I look at it, I see something different. When I look at Fehu, I see a majestic, an old oak-like tree, with roots deep and firm into the ground, and branches lush green with leaves spread far and wide, laden with fruits ripe for the picking. To me, Fehu tells us to establish strong roots into the ground first. This suggests to me grounding work, reconnecting not only with our "roots," a.k.a, where we come from, but, reestablishing a connection with mother nature as well. Then, it tells us to diligently, and patiently grow higher and higher, and when we see the fruits of our labors (our wealth), not to hoard it, but share it among friends and family.
If you guys have better suggestions, by all means, please suggest them :-)
I like the meanings of the Runes in this :).
The shape "does something to me when I Look at it". Its off/its weird/right/its balanced...lol. I'm hooked, and not sure why ...
p.s. do you draw the line at the bottom when you Draw the Rune ?
I did that line for visual effect here, really. Although I was seriously thinking of turning it into Bjarkan, as the "root" of Fehu.
I could see the fiery growth and expansion of Fehu in this BindRune and certainly see how it could aid Thurs in its purpose. I like it. Ive had success with Laguz in subconscious work similar to what your describing. I may borrow some of this BindRune(with your permission of course) and work Laguz into it. It might be a gentler energy.
