The Runic Formula and the Bindrunes

Laguz, Gebo, Mannaz, Elhaz, Dagaz, Ehwaz, Naudiz, Eihwaz,
Mannaz, Ingwaz, Wunjo and Mannaz

Red = fire runes: will, invoking causal power, love as a force.

What follows is an introduction to the nature of each rune in the
Runic Formula of the Torch of Life. The runes of the formula are
arranged in Triplets. The Triplets later become the Bindrunes. The
Bindrunes are a union of the nature of the three runes of each Triplet.
It was with the principle “the union is greater than the sum of its
parts” in mind that the Bindrunes found their form on the Galdrastafr.

I relate to each rune as a geometric conduit of multi-versal
intelligence. I intuit that the runes exist through many levels of mind
and memory. To those of us who study and/or meditate with them,
they have both a cultural meaning and a personal symbolic
relevance. Yet as they also exist as universals so they have a
galactic and universal depth. In the vast collective mind of all life kind
I perceive that the runes act as pathways of intuition
(feeling/knowing) and provide structure for the teaming possibilities
that are expressed as manifestation by all local universal minds.
TRIPLET 1

Laguz - Sacred Water, Life Rune, Magic, Intelligence,
Art, The Collective Emotional Field.

This rune is the glyph of Sacred Water and the rune of
Life. It is the conveyor of the fundamental life force and
the flow of the vital essence which is breathed into all
things. It is paradoxically subtle in the extreme and
awesome in the relentlessness of its flow. It is like a
small stream that carves a mountain and at the same
time is all the streams of the waters of the Earth and the
flow of vital essence in our bodies, in our veins, arteries
and soul light pathways.

Laguz is the power behind the impetus for growth,
always calling for a progression of Divine Expression. It
is that infinitely adaptable magic that is at the root of all
things from mineral to mammal, from microcosm to
macrocosm impulsing change into the new. Its core
radiates the intelligence behind the intelligence of our
awareness.

Laguz is both the nature of our channels of intuition and
the resonant stimulation behind the matrix of all ideas. It
is the energy that impulses our expansion into ever
greater potential. Impulsing us to create all our forms
with loving attention, intending beauty through our art,
bringing pleasure to the eye and heart through resonant
expression. It is always encouraging us to develop our
awareness and understanding of the nature of self
further.

Laguz is the fluid emotional field of the collective, the
emotional body of all that is. It could also be related to
as the umbilical cord to the Divine Mother, from and to
every navel in every universe.

Gebo - Gift of Love, Mystical Union, Partnership with
the Divine, Unlimited Pleasure, Freedom, Self-
Awareness, Unification/Re-Unification

Gebo is the gift of love. The mystery of mystical union,
the wholeness achieved through merging the human
personality in full partnership with the divine self, I AM
that I AM.

It is the ecstasy of unlimited pleasure, the flame of
passion that the totality of being has for the reflection of
itself that is our universe. It is the lovers whose union
conceived the isness of multiversal manifestation, and
so is also the symbol of our/all Divine Parents.

The energy behind this Rune is the seeker of balance,
the power that creates harmony through the exchange
of energy. It is the irresistible power of attraction that
creates the re-union that is experienced when the spark
returns to the flame and remembers the knowing of
itself as the flame.

Gebo is the gift of all the creative potential and power of
totality placed in all the facets of totality,
holographically, with all of the love for totality at its
heart. It is the gift of all the power and light of creator
nature that the Cosmic Giver gave to all the facets of
itself that voyaged into the infinite lifescapes of
multidimensional experience.

Gebo is the divine gift to the inquisitive ones who
choose individuality of consciousness. It is given to all
who travel through the innumerable inter-dimensional
interstellar junction boxes of countless galaxies and
continuums of time and space to all the outposts of
worldly experience, that they would grow in their
potential and create, with the Gift, infinite further
expansions of Light, Love and Harmonic Manifestation.

human beings, left and right aspects working together

our motivation towards perfection, our self-attraction to
our own divinity. Mannaz reminds us that what we can
conceive of we can manifest without exception, that
who we are is the Essence of Love and that our nature
