Runes : Video 41 – 12 Ways to Interpret the Gebo ᚷ Rune

In this video, I will demonstrate a quick exercise for those who are beginning their intermediate training with the runes. This practice should be undertaken once a person has learned the correct names, translations, and order of their chosen runes of study. This will help you quickly broaden the scope of each rune, leaving endless room for further philosophical development and growth. May all beings benefit from the power of the runes.

Gothic Language Book Recommendation

For those interested in Germanic Paganism, this is an excellent source for poetry and devotional hymns in the Gothic language.

This includes songs and invocations to archaic forms of Odin, Thor, Freyr, Frigga, and many other familiar divinities.

Although these are modern pieces, they hold within them a genuine love and respect for the Pagan faith, something old in spirit and reminiscent of days long gone.

It is important that we honor those who carry the torches of tradition and wisdom through the ages; those who sacrifice their time and effort to bring gifts like this to us.

Art, poetry, and song are ways to ensure that aspects of culture and religion are not completely lost to time, as so much of the Northern European religion has been lost since the days of Pagan dominance.

More people should take up poetry in this regard, as through poetry, art and music, the Northern religion will prevail once again and the Great Tree will continue to grow back to its glorious primordial heights.

May all beings benefit from devotion.

Focus, Compassion, Development

How many cataclysms happen within the seed before it sprouts, how many obstacles before the flower blooms?

Keep your head up, focus on your goals.

Be kind to your fellow man.

We all struggle, we all experience suffering.

There’s no need to add to this Karmic weight.

The war is against ourselves, not the world.

Custom Runes and Bindrunes

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.
