How is the x-rune used in giving and receiving a rune practice?
As you have read earlier the x-rune or gebo is used in rune philosophy to redirect your thinking toward what you could give to receive what you want to manifest. I do not here repeat all that former article. However, if you focus on what you could give to create a situation of giving and receiving, then your intention will most likely manifest. (Read that other article for more details.)
That on its face may not sound like magic, much less rune magic.
However, it is.
When you move into the giving mode in a receiving context, you are accessing a different vibration or energy zone. That is the energy that the gebo points the vitki to. There is an energetic or vibrational field that powers up your manifestation.
If someone is just looking to receive, manifest, there may be no place to receive.
I had an older lady come saying that she wanted a man in her life. She was looking for a manifestation ritual. That of itself is not a bad request. And that can be helpful.
However, she was not putting herself in a position to be noticed, at least in the context that she wanted. All that she did was focused around doing things with her lady friends. She was not in a position to be noticed.
She was not giving the time outside her female friendships to be around a male friend and be noticed.
We worked on how she could give her time more focused toward her intended manifestation. [The focusing of gebo energy is seen in the k-rune energy.] We energized that giving (of time) with a rune ritual. Soon she was noticed by a suitable partner. She had entered the energetic area of the power of gebo.
[Remember that rune means secret. The energy may not be seen or felt, but it does not mean that the energy is not there and working to the manifestation. Maybe better this exemplify that the energy works in secret, works in rune.]
The gebo energy exists and can be accessed in manifestation, either intentionally or accidentally. Why leave things to chance? The gebo is a powerful aid in manifesting your desires.
On the other hand if someone just gives without looking to be in the receiving context, they create a blockage to receiving.
Almost all parents want to make their children happy. A good thing to want to manifest. However, some parents give so much that they have a reverse effect. The children may end up with a haughty demeanor and are very unhappy people.
These parents are involved in giving as an end in itself. They are not entering the gebo realm of giving and receiving. They give because it makes them feel good. As they keep giving, they keep feeling good.
Even when it becomes clear to all around them that they are spoiling the child, they can not see the reality that they are only spoiling the child. They just keep giving because it makes them feel good to do so. They may give lip service to the intention to make the child happy. They may even deceive themselves into a false belief that they are in this type giving making the child happy.
They are not though manifesting their original intention, making the child happy. They are in a broken giving cycle, a giving that is separated from the receiving of their originally intended happiness of the child.
It is just giving. For some this might be the often misused “unconditional love” excuse. It is not “unconditional love”. It is just giving, giving because giving make them feel good.
They are not in that process going to manifest happy children. They maybe in some type of giving mode, but not giving in the receiving context. This type giving renders a situation were there is little to no gebo energy to manifest the intended manifestation gift, in this illustration a happy child. They are separated from the gebo energy or vibration.
Remember in the earliest runes magic times there were two types of rune magic, ritual (Odin style) and mental magic (Freja style). The magic primarily talked about here is mental magic. The mental rune magic helps you move into the proper energetic or vibrational realm to manifest your desire.
