I make runes nearly everyday. It keeps them fresh in my mind and allows me to express divine concepts through simple symbology.
With runes (and bindrunes) one can essentially deliver ideas to a fellow initiate without words; a language of its own based on the culture of those using them. This is the premise of all symbolism; the transfer of immense amounts of knowledge through very simple forms.
Here, we have a bindrune symbolizing Odin’s sacrifice on the Great Tree, where after 9 nights, he falls “screaming,” receiving the secrets of the runes. A gift for a gift (sacrifice).
Broken down we have :
ᛇ – Eihwaz (Yggdrasil, Axis Mundi, World Tree)
ᚬ – Oss (The hanging god, Odin)
ᚼ – Hagal (Hail, transformation, change)
ᚷ – Gebo (Gift, sacrifice, exchange)
If you want this, contact me. It’s made on Norway Spruce harvested from our land. If you want something custom of your own design, I would be honored to make it a physical reality. I have access to many kinds of wood, many of which are already processed and cured.
I have many runesets available as well. These include Elder Futhark, Younger and Anglo-Saxon Futhorcs. Adalruna sets are available as well, all on various wood types.
This bindrune is meant to enhance balance, inspire clarity, and reinforce stability of the mind, emotions, and spirit. A central Eihwaz rune establishes the spine/trunk; the “axis mundi” or center of the spirit. It represents the self within the spell. On either end of the Eihwaz rune, we see the opposing elemental forces of fire and water. These forces are in their spiritual or creative/emotional forms, represented by Kenaz and Laguz. These runes are chosen instead of their primordial and destructive counterpart forms, Sowilo and Isaz, as to inspire internal balance, rather than to influence external forces out of our control. This concept should be considered when working with this bindrune, as the only things we are really able to control are ourselves and our own thinking. In the center rests the Ingwaz rune, the rune of stored energy and the gestational power of growth. Ingwaz is the seed that symbolizes the beginning stages of all ideas and life; the “Sacred Enclosure” that represents a place of Order, defended at all sides against the ever imposing forces of chaos. At the bottom right protrudes an Uruz rune, added as an additional reminder of the raw, primordial energy that exists within us. May this aid in your mastery over internal balance and stillness.
These two bindrunes represent the Holy Trinity of ancient Germanic Paganism. The gods who encompass this trinity are traditionally the Sky Father, Earth Mother, and Thunder god. As seen on both runes, reading from top to bottom, we see the runes ᚨ : ᚦ : ᚠ representing Odin (Sky Father), Thor (Thunder God), and Freyja (Earth Mother). The left bindrune is mirrored on both sides while the right consists of single runes.
