Tatuajes rúnicos

El tatuaje no era una práctica ajena a los antiguos germanos y la costumbre de pintarse signos mágicos antes de entrar en batalla era muy común, también entre los celtas. Han llegado a nosotros restos de esta tradición entre los nórdicos. A continuación, algunos consejos sobre cuáles sigilos y galdrastafir son más apropiados para un tatuaje permanente. El AEgishjelmur, el Vegvisir o compás rúnico, para que las runas guíen a su portador en la dirección correcta, puede llevarse tatuado en forma permanente. Lásabrjótur "rompe cerrojos" -para mantenerse libre de trabas, evitar ser tomado prisionero-. Tradicionalmente se empleaba oculto entre las ropas, pero puede llevarse tatuado en forma temporal o permanente. Se desaconseja tatuarse Svefnthorn "espina del sueño", y el sigilo usado para atar prisioneros -por razones obvias-. La llamada Runa de Ilusión de Odín, puede ser llevada temporalmente -se desaconseja hacerla permanente-. Este sigilo permite pasar desapercibido ante los ojos de los enemigos; según se dice permite a su portador cambiar de forma si conoce la magia adecuada. Gapaldur y Ginfaxi se usaban en la glíma, una forma de lucha islandesa. Se coloca la primera en el calzado izquierdo, la otra en el derecho. No se tatúan. Hraethigaldur y Ottastafur causan miedo al enemigo. Se graban en una plancha de madera que se arroja a los pies del enemigo. Svefnthorn se debe grabar en una plancha de madera que se coloca bajo la almohada o colchón de quien no puede dormir, asegurándole el reposo. El berserker marcaba en su frente el AEgishjelmur antes de entrar en batalla, presionando una plancha de metal con este signo a modo de sello. El AEgishjelmur hace invencible a quien lo porta e infunde temor en los enemigos; es un símbolo que puede llevarse tatuado preferentemente en un lugar visible. Hay múltiples variaciones de las runas asociadas que un/a vitki puede desarrollar, aquí presento sólo la forma básica. Sobre el Walknutr no hay acuerdo, algunos vitkar/godhár desaconsejan tatuarlo porque lo consideran un símbolo relacionado con la muerte, específicamente con muerte violenta asociada al Berserkergang, y el culto a Odín y Valkirjur como electoras de Einherjar. Pero creo que si uno es seguidor/a de Odín, este destino está dentro de las posibilidades propias, y tatuarse el Walknutr no haría más que enfatizarlo.

How to use your runes?

Have you ever made a choice in your life, that you just felt was right for you, even though logic told you otherwise? You had no way of knowing whether it was right or wrong, but your gut told you and turns out it was the right choice. Well, that gut feeling is actually your intuition, the connection with your higher self that leads you towards the best possible outcome. However, it only happens sometimes, because we are so disconnected from ourselves and our intuition. One of the easiest ways to strengthen your intuition is through rune divination.What are runes?Wait, what are runes exactly? Well, runes are actually an ancient Germanic alphabet. Like any alphabet, they were used for writing, but it was also believed that the runes have magical powers and were often used in magical rituals as well as for divination. There are 25 runes, and each rune in the alphabet has its own specific meaning. Although they have their own meaning, using rune divination can be tricky, because you always have to be specific with your questions and ponder on the answers. The word rune itself can be translated like “mystery, secret, whisper”. And it’s only appropriate because when doing rune divination, your intuition “whispers” to you and unveils the mysteries and secrets in your life. How to use your runes for divination?Although runes can be used for checking what your close future may hold for you, the readings are not set in stone. That means that you can change your future, which is why runes are mostly used for solving current issues and gaining further insight into your current situation and situations of the past. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t use them for checking up on your future as well, you just have to know the way. Today we are sharing a couple of beginner runic divination techniques to get you started! Here is how to use your runes for divination:- Daily RuneWhen starting off with runic divination, the trickiest part is to learn all the runes, their meanings, and what they mean for you, in that specific situation. The easiest way to understand your runes better is to start with daily rune readings. Every morning when you wake up, focus on the question – “What does today hold for me?” – and pick a random rune. Then study what the rune means from the chart in the rune set. But, don’t stop there. Reflect on the current occurrences and try to think of what it could mean for you, in your specific situation. It would be best to take some notes. Then, after the day passes, reflect on what happened, and how you can relate those situations to your rune reading. Take some notes and compare them daily to get a better insight into rune divination, your life, and your closest future.- The cast of three V1Place the wood runes in front of you in random order. Close your eyes, and take a few more deep breaths. Then, place your hand in front of you, and feel the energy flowing around you. Choose a rune that you are most drawn to. Then open our eyes to see the rune. Place the rune in front of you, on your left side. Close your eyes again. Take a few more deep breaths and repeat the same process until you choose three runes. Set the second next to the first rune, from the right, and the third rune next to the second rune, on its right. Now open your eyes. The runes in front of you represent answers to three major problems, issues, or situations in general in your life: The first rune - Is an answer to your past. The second rune - Is an answer to your present. The third rune - Represents an answer to what there is yet to come. - Ask A QuestionAnother great way to all you newbies in runic divination is to think of questions before you do the reading. Start off by writing down a few questions that you have. Then take a look at the questions. If they are too generic, you have to start to formulate them to be more specific. The more details, the more specific the questions – the better your reading will go. Then, start by focusing on the first question. Close your eyes and choose a rune that you feel like you are drawn to the most. Then open your eyes and check the chart for its meaning. Repeat until you are done with all your questions.We are hoping that you found our runic divination guide helpful!Tune in to our blog to learn more about Runes and Divination!
