Runic Posture

Rune Yoga, or Runic postures are used to anchor the energy of the Rune in your physical body. More about them can be found here: Runic Postures.

Assume the recommended runic posture and sing the name of the rune in a non-exhaustive way that you can feel your body vibrating – in magic literature it is called vibrating. It could be that you can hear overtones clearer as usual during vibrating. Take this as a good sign. You are visualizing the rune with your inner eye, as its form is being represented by your body and the energies are flowing through your body.

Stand up with your left arm down at your side. Your right arm is brought up above the shoulder. Bend the elbow as shown in the image above. Hold the palm of the hand flat and level with the ground.

Because the traditional position seems almost impossible to accomplish, here is a more comfortable variation.

Stand up, with your arms extended forward and down. The palms of the hands point towards the ground. Practice also with the palms facing up.

Before practicing a rune it is recommended to know everything on the powers of the rune you want to practice. The flow of energy is different for each rune, a field of research for your sensitivity.

The hand positions, or mudras are effective only after you have anchored the runes in your own aura and body. They can be made silent and unobtrusive.

For all forms of success and all types of achievement. However, remember that a gift, and take note of the associated god. Useful for harnessing internal power, intuition and creativity, the ability to achieve, as with a sudden rush of adrenaline or creation of momentum. The fourth of Odin’s runes frees one from locks and fetters, which ties in well with the meaning of Nauthiz.

This rune has two aspects and you would do well to remember them when formulating your runescript. Nauthiz represents need and distress but also the release from that distress. Through the utilization of this rune by the will, one can change Fate via knowledge and wisdom. This rune is a very powerful rune in Icelandic love magick and represents the primal needs and desires that drive you to seek out a lover. Overcoming distress. Achieving your goals. Protection. Love magick and to find a lover. Impetus to get a relationship off the ground.

Overcoming distress or negative energy. Development of magical will. Development of “spiritual” powers. Protection. Use of the force of “resistance” under will toward magical goals.

bonds of oppression can be broken.

The meaning of Hagalaz in magick is very different from its meanings in divination. In magick, it is a rune of evolution, but it is evolution of the slow but sure type within a fixed framework.

Completeness and balance of power. Mystical and numinous experience and knowledge. Evolutionary, becoming operations. Protection.

The traditional posture calls for the left arm and right leg to be extended in matching 45° angles, placing the body at a slant. The right arm is bent at the elbow with the fingers and hand pointing upward, and the left leg is bent at the knee, stabilizing the body. This posture is based on a slightly different rune shape, which can be seen on the left side of the figure.

An alternative posture based on the more familiar form of Kenaz is as follows:

Stand up with legs spread, feet straight and knees firm. Extend the arms at an angle that forms the X, with the hands directly above the feet.
