Recently feeling very enraged for no reason, drew Thurisaz- relief ensued.

Recently, I was feeling enraged and I had no idea why! The anger was so deep. I found myself being short with everyone- feeling like I was going to snap. I was not at all like myself.

I decided to go into my meditation room and seek advice from my ancestors and from the runes. I started to explain what I was feeling and tears came forth. I had tears from my anger. I asked why I was feeling this way- and what was I so enraged about?

As soon as I put my hand into my rune bag, Thurisaz grabbed for me. I pulled it out and relief washed over me. I was completely refreshed. Amazed, I smiled and then traced the symbol on myself with white ash. I realized, that somehow, I must have been under attack?

I thanked the runes and my ancestors. I am confused why or what presence was wanting me to feel that way, but am so grateful for the runes and their strength!

I wanted to share this, because it was such a powerful experience. I wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience?

I'm not much into the bag of Runes, I have them and should work on them more.  I like to draw them and Galdr.  I'm a singing fool !  Anyway, I have an older car and the fan was running after I shut the car off.  It weaked the battery.  I had so many jumps from people it wasn't even funny.  I often Galdr in my car.  I inadvertantly was Galdring the rune Uruz.  UUUUURRRRoooooOOOOOZZzzzz, vibrating away.  All of a sudden, the fan stop running and running.  It hasn't run at all.  It just fixed itself.  I have had some amazing insights during my waking meditation.  I have been given some deep insights into how things work.  I love singing and language.  This to me, is a magical language.  I like to create bindrunes on rocks and place blessing runescripts over my doorway and so on.  This is a real RrrrRRRRrrrrraiDDDDddoOOOOO for me.  I'm loving the adventure !  Hail Odin and blessings to you on your journey.  I love Sigha Manning's videos on Youtube and I'm listening to a lot of Galdr music on Youtube as well as the music from other Shamic paths.  She is also a member here on this forum.  She's a very spiritual person.  I would love to chat with the author of this book.

Maagda, thank-you for sharing that incredible story! So wonderful, that after all anyone could do and Uruz was the answer! I love that you sing the runes. I will have to try that! I like the idea of blessing rune scripts over the doorways and using rocks in your way. I have drawn runes on the four sides of my home to bring protection, joy and light. What an adventure to be sure! I'll have to check out the video. Blessing on your journey as well! Glad to meet you!

Sigha Manning's Channel, Youtube  She's a Norse pantheon life coach and has some wonderful videos on Galdr and a video for each of the 24 runes done in poetry and a meditative mind set.  She likes poetry and chanting or Galdring the runes as well.  There is so much more to runes than just divination. Thanks for replying.

Thank-you, I was watching her videos, just now :). Contemplating on Thurisaz a moment ago, as I was preparing roses for my vase, gave me more insight to my experience. It was as if when I pulled out Thurisaz, I was pulling out a thorn (similar to dream symbols). I appreciate the link. Have a great day!

Thurisaz, from my observations, has a relation to the forces of thunder and lightning. These forces, according to many mythos, "break open" the clouds allowing the rain held within to fall and bless the land with water. This, in turn, allows seeds to grow and life begins. Ingwaz is related to seeds, from my workings. They are stored in Berkano until they manifest under the right conditions. These are my ideas, for what they're worth. Your mileage may vary :-)

Desert Raven, thank-you for your insight! I like your way of looking at it.

Thurisaz can transmute rage to constructive activities or emotions.

Think of the hammer it represents in Norse myth. The hammer can either be a destructive, combative force, or one that builds and creates. 

Sometimes, when I am feeling angry, (it's rare for me, but it happens to everyone) I turn to writing, and I can use the emotion to fuel a good 10-20 pages! I choose not to write about the mundane matter that is making me angry, rather I channel it into philosophical ideas that become very edgy and filled with life and passion.

So your story about Thurisaz makes a lot of sense to me. Thanks for sharing it.

I'm happy to see you up and posting Tyriel.  Your writings on the Runes have been a great blessing to me in my life.  Welcome back ;)

I am planning much more writing, even rune music.

I wasn't idle in my absense. I've learned a lot and devised a strong rune practice to share in my upcoming book "Questioning the Runes". I'm happy that you've found my work helpful so far, but there is much left to be done! :)

Thank-you, Tyriel! I do enjoy writing. I hope your new projects turn out well. They sound intriguing! I will buy your book questioning the runes, for certain! Recently, I was given murkstave Ansuz 3 days in a row, along with murkstave alghiz and tiwaz and uruz (on various days) for something I felt- in the depths of my soul- to be the right choice. But the runes were saying something else. It was a very conflicting feeling. In the end I put in for a move that would bring me closer to family, deeper into nature, less stress and traffic...but I wonder, maybe it won't go through (which would make sense and coincide with the runes). But if it does, then I wonder what the runes were trying to protect me from...I do love them so.
