Keeping Up Faculties Rune

This rune is intended to prevent and aid with mental deterioration such as forgetfulness, dementia, etc.  It is also useful for strengthening and preventing loss of basic physical faculties such as vision, hearing, and basic energy.  Helps prevents accidents.

This rune includes (in white):

 

Os: This rune calls on the universe’s knowledge of this person’s essence and their place in the world to keep that person within their personality and within awareness of who and what surrounds them.

Stan: To draw the person to their personal cornerstone and keep them their own person when threatened by accident or illness.

Othala: To prevent personality-changing or significant physical-accident energies at bay and keep the person safely aware of themselves and who they are.

Ehwaz: To strengthen and guide the person’s spirit through its obstacles and keep it in touch with allies, real and spiritual.

Berkana: To nurture the person’s strength, spiritual and physical, and help them grow older in harmony with change, but without loss of essence.

Raidho: To enable quick reflexes, quick thinking, and quick protection against anything that would threaten significant deterioration, while still carrying that person safely down the path they are meant to follow.

Algiz: To protect, to prevent, and to lead in the right direction.

Tyr: To lead the person to an aware finish, protect from deterioration, and strengthen all natural abilities.

Eiwaz: To enhance health, keep the person’s strength where it will be of the most use, and keep damaging accidents or illness fluid enough that the person’s essential strength will be able to fight it.

 

This rune has a straight vertical line with no topper, like an antenna, to focus its energies on the person for whom you are making it.  To direct and focus the rune, write the person’s name (in runes or otherwise) across the top.  In my example, these are the yellow runes.

Goddess Cerridwen Rune

In honor of Goddess Cerridwen (journeyingtothegoddess.wordpress.com/2012/07/03/goddess-cerridwen/), I have created a bindrune.  This rune will not only help one communicate with and honor the goddess, but should strengthen all of her aspects in life, inviting in inspiration, creativity, poetry, prosperity, the ability to transform and adapt, and the wisdom to face shadows and changes with the desire to chase down what you need.  Placing it in a special container when you wish for a particular aspect or communion with the goddess will be a sign of good faith, that you are stirring your intuitive and magical energies and are ready to face what happens when the goddess’s magic and messages manifest.

 

Cerridwenrune

 

The runes in this bindrune are the letters of Cerridwen’s name (with one ‘e’ Ehwaz and the other Eiwaz).

This rune is designed to emulate the wisdom and creativity potion Cerridwen created with her cauldron and intended for her son.  The up and down line in Nied is expanded on to act as the spoon which stirs the goddess’s magic labors.  I used the color yellow to simulate the grains and herbs Cerridwen is lady of and used in her potion.  I added a crow as this magical bird also belongs to Cerridwen as well as being a carrier of messages between us and our spirit allies.  All glory to the goddess!

 

I have also celebrated her today with eating grains and bacon.  Perhaps my favorite thing though, is that in the Disney picture-a-day calendar I have for the year, the picture that turned up on Cerridwen’s day is the magical cauldron from “Black Cauldron.”  So I am also staring at that and feeling pleasure in the small things the goddess can provide inspiration through.  Happy and inspirational shapeshifting days to you!
