What is the secret to runic magic?
There several answers which could be viewed as true for this question. Consider this answer.
Whatever the intent of the magic, manifestation or healing, what ever form of magic, shamanic, Wicca, runes, chi gong, etc., there is a secret element. In runes this is found in the g-rune or gebo, which is written as a large X.
Gebo so the rune of giving. This principle is true in all of life pursuits. Whenever there is a giving there is a receiving. When ever there is a receiving there is a giving.
If you are to be consistently effective in manifesting your intent, you need to be able to consistently see the giving as well as the receiving.
There was a lady who prayed for seven years for the receiving of a winning lotto ticket. Finally she said I guess god does not answer prayers. Then she heard a voice from heaven, “First you must buy a ticket.”
Always look for what you must give to receive. Maybe this is why Jesus said it is more blessed to give than to receive.
Sometimes it is extremely hard to find but look first for a giving and view the intended receiving from the view point of that giving.
Let us say you want to manifest peace in a relationship. Maybe you should be giving peace in the relationship, peace in the midst of chaos.
State what needs to be stated calmly, and then do not argue about it. Just shut up peacefully.
Look at the other person calmly in the eyes as they attempt to escalate into an angry argument. Try to project (give) the blessing of peace and love; give a pleasant peaceful smile; or just give a calm (unresponsive) listening ear. Be at peace with what you give and say thank you for the harvest of peace that you know will follow.
I recently had a man come into my office. He was very upset with energies going in every direction at once; he even talked of suicide. My first thought was to say calm down. That is what I intended to happen.
However, I thought better as to what I could give him. I gave him an abbreviated autogenics/hypnosis exercise. In thirty minutes he left very calm.
Think in terms of giving and not of receiving, and you will more than likely manifest the desired receiving.
