The Runes UR and YR

The Ur-Rune has the basic meaning of Aurochs which is the 'Ur-Ox' or 'Primal Ox'; this was a massive beast with horns that could reach up to 12ft long. You can imagine the power of such an animal. The Aurochs represents the primal nature of the wilderness, the 'Moor-Stomper' as the Old English Rune Poem calls the beast. This is a very primal power, and a chaotic power such as that found in the 'stampede'. 

The rune itself means 'primal' which means 'first'; this is the Rune of Origins which refers to the source of something. The glyph is said to be that of the horns of an ox or bull; the stave also looks like the body of the ox or bull, which may have been where it derives from.

The above is an alternative, although the ur-glyphic symbol was probably like an upturned 'V' rather than as the stave above. This is the symbol of the Primal Mountain and is a male symbol as opposed to the 'V' shape itself which is female. The Sacred Mountain is Mount Me-Ru or Mount Su-Me-Ru either of which we use within Folkish Wodenism. 

It has been said that the stave represents a 'doorway', probably due to the shape of it, though this does seem to need a bit of imagination to see it for one. The Ox or Ur-Ox is an 'earthly' beast, and like Taurus the Bull it has associations with the Earth. This rune represents the Lower Cauldron of the ALU-ULA Exercise, which is Bodn or 'Earth'. 

The rune is a rune of strength and power; it is a powerful healing-rune in ite own right. Meditating upon the rune will aid in strengthening one's self-discipline and Will-to-Power. The Primal Bull has associations with Rudra-Shiva, which underlines its chaotic, wild nature; it is a rune of the wilderness, of the Primal Wilderness. Use the rune when doing strength-training. In order to feel this power it is necessary to retire into the wilderness at times, to get out into the wild, windy, wet, cold wilderness and to 'feel' its power. 

The alternative meaning of 'drizzle' refers to the misty realm created by the coming together of the Primal Fire and Primal Ice. This is the realm of the Mist Hunter and in Celtic Lore we find the figure of Gwyn ap Nydd - 'Gwyn - Son of the Mist'; Gwyn ('The White One') is the Wild Hunter-God that we know as Woden. Gwyn-Wyn-Gwydion-Wydion-Woden - they are the same archetypal Hunter-God and Magician-Poet.

The stave also represents the 'Path of the Fire-Serpent' in that the long upright stave is the Spinal Column along which the Fire-Serpent rises; the stave going across is the path of the Fire-Serpent over the crown of the head; the shorter stave is the final movement to the Mind's Eye or Third Eye. This can be found on the famous Sutton Hoo Mask where the Serpent moves from the neck, over the head, to the Mind's Eye where it meets with the Eagle-Swan-Winged Serpent. The whole thing represents the transformation of the Serpent (Earth-Mortal) into the Winged Serpent-Eagle (Divine-Immortal). 

The Ur-Rune also features in the English Yr-Rune, as shown below -

This rune is made up of an Ur-Rune within which is an 'Irminsul' which can be more easily seen in a variant where the inner cross-piece goes straight across and not at an angle as here. Here the Ur-Rune seems to be used in its original form and meaning of 'Primal' in that the 'Irminsul' represents the Three Royal Lines of the Angles - Wolsungas, Wulfingas and Heardingas. This is an interpretation used solely within Folkish Wodenism and the Ar-Kan Runes. The Yr-Rune also represents Ymir and the Primal Sound - YM (pronounced as UUUM, as in 'l-UM-inous'). 

The Armanen System and Norse Systems use the above rune for YR; both the Norwegian and Icelandic runes refer to either the Yew-Tree of the Yew-Bow. The Old English Rune-Poem also suggests (to me) a Yew-Bow, and the glyph itself also suggests the same. The use of the bow on horseback is clearly stated in the OE Rune-Poem, or at least suggested if the meaning is that of a Yew-Bow. The YR-Rune shown here is also a glyph of a bow and arrow, when turned onto its side. In the Ar-Kan system the above is the Calc-Rune whilst the top glyph is the Yr-Rune. Times change, technology changes, and the above 'bow and arrow' becomes a 'nuclear warhead' in modern terms of warfare - the symbols remain the same. Just as the 'Ministry for Peace' concerns itself with war in Orwellian terms, so the 'Peace Movement' uses a warlike symbol as its prime symbol.

The Hagal-Rune, shown as the 'snowflake' version below, is made up of the 'Life-Rune' and 'Death-Rune' -

But it is also the case that the Haegl-Rune of the Ar-Kan Runes can be split into two Ur-Runes, one above the other -

The same is true of the Hagal-Rune of the Common Germanic Futhark, which has only one cross-stave. The stave shows - UR-RU. In both cases there is a fusion of opposites into a wholeness. In both cases there is the union of male and female into a wholeness - a Sacred Marriage. There is also a link between the meanings of Ur (Drizzle) and Hagal (Hail); the latter is frozen rain or drizzle.

The difference in sounding UR and YR is quite simple; UR is sounded at the back of the throat, whilst YR is sounded at the front of the mouth. This, I feel, is the way that they could be sounded, but this is just my own idea on the subject. Thus UR is deeper and more 'primal' whilst YR is a shade higher in pitch.

The father of Bor is Buri, and the name 'Buri' is given to a Primal Beast, often the Bear, Boar or the Wolf depending upon cultures. B-Ur-i is a Primal Being, the First of the Gods. His name contains his essence - 'Primal'. He is the 'First of the Gods'. His origins lie in the Primal Ice which also produced the Primal Being Ymir. It was Audhumla, the Cosmic Cow or Cosmic Mother, that licked the Ice and freed Buri; at the same time her milk fed the giant Ymir. Ymir represents the Primal Material from which the worlds were formed by the Gods - Woden, Will and Weoh. 

B = The Creation - Birth.

UR = Primal.

I = Primal Ice - the forming material from which Buri emerged. 

The son of Buri is Bor and the names appear to mean the same; he marries Bestla ('Best Blood' according to Vargs Vikernes); this couple produces Woden, Will and Weoh, the Triple-Godhead. We have the sequence 1 - 2 - 3 which appears as such in various traditions, each giving birth to the next. In fact, we would perhaps be better stating this as 0 - 1 - 2 - 3 since the starting point is really with the Void - Ginnungagap.

The Lagu Rune

This rune has differing spellings in different areas but the meaning is much the same throughout Germania -

Laguz (PGmc) - water/lake.

Lagu (OE) - ocean.

Logr (O. Ice.) - waterfall.

Logr (Norse) - water.

We can add to this Laukaz which means 'leek' and which is the odd one out here; the leek was a symbol of warrior-hood.

The glyph is that of a wave of the sea, a wave of the lake, flowing water of any kind, and the waterfall as shown in the Icelandic Rune-Poem. So far this is straightforward.

In Wodenic Lore we use the Three Cauldrons as a spiritual exercise; these have been amply covered before so I will not go into the subject fully. What we need to consider is that the Lagu-Rune in this Ar-Kan Rune-Lag system is to be found at the Solar Plexus-Heart Centre - at the Son-Centre. Here it does in fact relate to water, and also to the blood, hence why its colour is red. 

Science knows that the heart generates an electromagnetic field 5000 times more powerful than the human brain; this makes this centre very powerful. The Heart Centre is seen as female, associated with electro-magnetism, mystery, awe, emotions, feelings and the element of Water. In today's society this centre has been almost cut off since the brain-centre is dominant through education and everything associated with modern life. The Heart-Centre is associated with the Soul and with the holistic, intuitive side of consciousness - it is, of course, a Source of Consciousness, no matter what materialistic science maintains. 

As part of the ALU-ULA formula this centre forms the central point of the upwards-downwards movement along the Spinal Column - Mount Su-Me-Ru or Mount Me-Ru. If you chant the ALU-Gealdor over and over in a rhythmic form the sound 'LUWA' can also be heard; this forms part of the same formula but rather than the three letters of spirit, the four letters of matter come into being. 

This brings me to another matter, and one which follows from this idea but is not really the subject of a post on the Lagu-Rune. However, I might as well go into this here for convenience. We have the following runes in the ALU-ULA -

Ur - Earth - Bodn (Boden).

Lagu - Water - Son.

Ansuz - Air - Odroerir.

Now, looking at this we find that the element of Fire is completely missing; this is something that seems to need putting to right. The element Fire should perhaps be found at the Solar Plexus Centre since this relates to the Sun, to Light and thus to Fire. The three colours - Black, Red and White - relate to the colours of the ancient Royal Art (Alchemy). But here again there is another (missing) colour - Yellow. So, we could relate this colour - Yellow - to the Sun-Centre or Solar Plexus Centre. There is reason to believe that the Lagu Centre contains both the elements - Water and Fire. 

As the 'Son' this centre equates with Ingwe/Ingui; as the Son of Njord he is associated with water, but as the Divine Hero he is associated with the flame and with fire. Ingwe can be seen as Agni of the Vedas - Fire from Water. Here we have the links between Fire and Water, both held at this centre. 

When we consider certain key points within our runic-lore we find this recurring pattern of 3-4 - Spirit-Matter. The following are clear examples -

  • There are 3 Aettir in the Common Germanic Futhark; there are 4 Aettir in the Ar-Kan Runes.
  • There are 3 Graal-Runes in the Ar-Kan Runes - Calc/Stan/Gar; there are the 4 Hallows in this system - Cweorth/Calc/Stan/Gar.
  • There are 3 'cauldrons' in this system; there is a hidden 'cauldron' represented by the colour Yellow.

This even comes into biblical lore with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, where we have Black, Red, White and Yellow; the latter, Yellow, is the 'pale horse' associated with 'death'. 

White Horse - a Crowned Bowman.

Red Horse - Swordsman.

Black Horse - Scales or Balances.

Pale Horse - Death. 

Red and Yellow make Gold! This is the 'Alchemical Gold', the end-result of the alchemists journey. 

The Heart-Centre is the centre associated with the emotions, with true (Aryan) compassion, and with love. The symbol of the heart is really the female buttocks and genitalia hidden in one symbolism; in the case of 'love' an arrow passes through this heart. In the Dream of the Rood we find the Krist pierced by arrows reflected in Beowulf where Herebald is pierced through with arrows. Herebald is, of course, Baeldaeg. Let me just look at the name Bael-Daeg, which means - 

Bael - this can mean 'Light' and also 'White',

Daeg - 'Day'.

This we have - The Light-Day or The White-Day, the 'Light-God' or 'White-God' who is also known as Pol or Pal, names associated with the 'pole' and with the Polar Mythus. Also associated with the symbolism of the Heart and Arrow is the god Wali, Son of Woden. The Son of Bael-Daeg is known as Brand a name linked to 'Fire', to the 'Fire-Brand', and to the 'Sword-Blade'. 

In the Chakra System the 'Heart Centre' is named Anahata which is said to mean 'unhurt', 'unstruck' or 'unbeaten', or so it would seem. This name is not very far from the Iranian Goddess known as Anahita or in full Ardvi Sura Anahita. She is the goddess associated with the waters and the source of the Cosmic Ocean. Her association with water is underlined by her chariot being drawn by four horses - wind, rain, cloud, sleet. She is the 'Source of Life' and associated with Venue and the Eight-Rayed Star or 'Veneris' (Serrano). In Armenia she is known as Anahit and she is the Goddess of Sovereignty.

It would seem quite obvious that consciousness does not exist merely in the human brain; indeed, since there are so many cases of 'out-of-body-experiences' and 'near-death-experiences' logged down for us, consciousness exists outside of the human body. It seems to interact with the brain and also with the heart. The ancient peoples knew that consciousness exists to some extent in everything

The term 'heart' in some way connects to the 'earth'; moving the first letter - 'h'  - to the end produces 'earth', here we have a subtle connection (*). Connecting this to Ingwe and the Inga-Fire we have the word 'hearth' which is made up of both 'heart' and earth'. At the side of the 'hearth' is the Inglenook (Ing-le-nook). Ingwe and Fire are connected through this; and the Golden Boar is symbolic of this Solar-God or Solar-Phallic God. 

(*) This I got from a 55 Club work which linked this idea to the 'Beginning and the End', and the 'First and the Last'.

In the Chinese system there are three 'Dan Tiens' - Lower, Middle and Upper; these are the Energy-Centres of the body, or rather, Energy-Centres linked to the human body -

Lower Dan Tien - Jing which is the Source of Energy.

Middle Dan Tien - Qi/Chi which is the heart area, associated with thoughts and emotions.

Upper Dan Tien - Shin which is associated with consciousness and spirit.

Here we can actually see a link with our runes since the Lower Dan Tien is the 'Source of Energy' whilst we use the Ur-Rune for this - Primal or First, i.e. the 'source'. The Middle Dan Tien is the heart-centre and it is here that the 'thoughts' and 'emotions' stir the Chi-Force (Vril) into motion. The Upper Dan Tien is the realm of Spirit, of Od/Wod - the Realm of Odin.

The Bind-Rune

Most people will know what is meant by the term 'bind-rune'; for anyone who does not it means a number of runes bound together into a single symbol. The rune-meanings are thus 'bound' together into a 'magical formula'. I am going to use the above drawing (courtesy of Hamasson) to show how a bind-rune works. Although it may seem quite simple this one has a number of runes within it that are not at first obvious. Let us go through the runes and I hope that I have covered all of them as we do so -

Is-Rune: This is the upright stave running through the centre; it means 'ice' which is stasis, stillness, but which also represents the Cosmic Axis which at one level is the spinal column.

Ing-Rune: In this we can find an Anglo-Saxon Ing-Rune and two Germanic Ing-Runes (diamond-shape). These two latter runes are found in a separate rune-stave, but that there are three runes has to empower the Ing-Rune more due to this. This is the Rune of Ingwe - it is the rune associated with the 'Son of Man'. This concept is very important and I'll deal with that later.

Ger-Rune: The Anglo-Saxon Ger-Rune is formed by the upper part of the Is-Rune, being made up of this and a Germanic Ing-Rune. Ger relates to the seasons revolving around the Cosmic Axis. 

Eolhs-Rune : Calc-Rune : Ing-Rune: The Anglo-Saxon Ing-Rune, with the upright stave running through it, can be seen as an Eolhs-Rune (Tree of Life), a Calc-Rune (Death-Rune) and the Germanic Ing-Rune which naturally forms part of the A-S Ing-Rune. Here we have 'Ing hanging between Life and Death'. This itself is a powerful symbol, and when held within that of The Hooded Man this is made even more powerful. 

Wyn Runes (back-to-back): Here we have the Mystic Formula '88' since the Wyn-Rune is the eighth rune of the Futhork. The Wyn-Rune is that of 'Joy' and also symbolic of the 'Tribal Banner' and thus represents the 'Joy in Kinship'. It is the rune of fellowship and kinship. 

Feoh-Runes: Two Feoh-Runes can be found within this bind-rune, each facing outwards from the central Is-Rune. Feoh is a Rune of Fire, a Rune of Light, and a Rune of Initiation. 

Thorn-Runes: the upper part of this symbol shows two Thorn-Runes, one right and the other reversed. These runes are very powerful symbols and in The Hooded Man we find a darker side as well as a light side - he comes both to destroy and to recreate. 

Ken-Runes: Two Germanic Ken-Runes can be found in the A-S Ing-Rune; this is the Ken-Fusion version of this rune, holding within it 'Cosmic Fire' and the 'Fire of the Forge' - the 'Fire of the Will'. 

Edel-Rune: Two Edel-Runes can be found, one upright and the other upside-down. In a sense these symbolise the Divine Twins which have a connection to The Hooded Man. The rune itself, as Hamasson has shown in the past, is that of The Hooded Man. It also relates to the 'Racial Homeland' - At-al-land. One is the sinking of At-al-land, the other the rising of At-al-land. This all relates to Ingwe and to The Hooded Man. The A-S Ing-Rune itself shows 'The Hooded Man' with a 'Crown' - the 'Crowned and Avenging Son of the Sun'. (Hamasson pointed out the 'crown' too). 

Sig-Runes: The Sig-Rune (forwards and backwards) can be found twice in this same bind-rune, being formed within the A-S Ing-Rune. The 'Lightning-Flash' was, to Nietzsche, symbolic of the Superman. 

Nyd-Rune: This is another rune that can be found within this glyph; it can be found twice within the symbol, thus doubling the 'Power of Need'. This is the 'Sword of Need' (Nothung) which is in fact the 'Need of Ing'. 

Tir-Rune: This is another rune found within this symbolism; from this the Lagu-Rune can also be found, but we should not push these points too far perhaps. Tiw is the 'God of Victory'. the 'Tribal God'. 

Eoh-Rune: We can find this rune hidden too; this is the 'Yew Tree', the tree of Eternal Life and Death. The opposites of Life and Death, Good and Evil, Light and Darkness can be found symbolised here. 

That is far as I can go here though I may have missed something, of course; this is enough to show how many runes can be found in this type of bind-rune. There is a lesson here since if such a bind-rune were made up for a certain purpose the rune-magician must be sure to recognise any 'hidden' runes he puts in which are not necessarily part of the bind-rune. 

This symbol was originally a kind of 'logo' or 'signature' which I used myself; it originated in a symbol put down after the mystical experience I had back in 1997, and it was connected to the Hale-Bopp Comet Mysteries. It developed and has been altered slightly but the basic meaning relates to The Hooded Man.

The Runes of Ingwe

As I was looking through my old works I came across the 33 runes which were discovered by a Woden Initiate back in March 2012. Over and over again I have meditated upon these, come up with some ideas, but never really understood why they have been given to us, nor what they really mean. So now I am going to open this mystery to others, hoping that someone, somewhere, will come up with some new discovery that will open these mysteries to us once and for all.

The trigger for this was when I asked this Odinist if he could meditate upon a 'crystal' for me. This was because I was asked to look into a 'crystal' that was the subject of 'Psychic Questing' some years ago, a crystal hidden somewhere up in the Scottish Highlands. Being not so well off I could not risk going up there on a whim without some form of proof that something tangible may be there, so I asked Ragnar Eriksson, who I had only just met, to do this meditation, hoping that he would come up with something. He was outside our group and thus not involved so anything we got would be uninfluenced by our work.

Nothing is simple, and Wyrd set the web trembling and Ragnar (mistakenly) thought that I was referring to the 'Krist-All' of Guido von List, and his meditations went along these lines. Had he not have done so these would no doubt not have come to light - weird. His letter to me is as below -

Hello Wulf,

After receiving your email asking me to meditate on an ancient crystal I assumed that you meant the one used by Guido von List at the beginning of the Twentieth Century? With this in mind I set about the task of doing so, but had no illumination until my second attempt a day later. This time I knew that there was something odd that I was seeing, but it was unclear what it was that I was actually seeing. My third attempt became more revealing in as much as I was seeing something else inside the Crystal Cube, but this was not at all well defined. 

A fourth evening meditating on this revealed a diamond-shaped smaller crystal inside the first. The Armanen Runes appeared where one would expect them, i.e. on the edges of the facets of the first crystal. But there were also runic shapes on the facets of the diamond too. 

On my fifth attempt I saw only the diamond-shaped crystal, the runic shapes were each in flames. On seeing this I copied down the shapes I saw in the order in which they were revealed to me. Having now got a set of 33 rune-shapes I had no names for them so had another meditation session the following evening and, sure enough, I was given the rune-names. 

You will find them on the page behind this letter mate. I cannot say if this is what you are after, if these are meant for you, or even if these are the healing-runes I have been looking for for the past twenty years? Either way, I am sure you might be able to sheds some light here, Wulf?

Best Wishes and I hope this helps (in whatever way),

Kind Regards,

Ragnar Eriksson

Firstly it would be wise to tell how I came to meet Ragnar Eriksson, whom I have lost touch with long ago). Both he, and a lady within his group, had the same dream-vision in which they were told to 'Seek out the Wolf and the Pale Dragon'. After this he came across our website and assumed that I was the 'Wolf' and the White Dragon was the 'Pale Dragon'. Some synchronicity, and proof that there are Higher Powers working through many people, working for the same struggle. It would seem that he was led to us in order to be the one to reveal these Holy Runes, and we must thank him for this. (*)

Anyway, it is now time to reveal these 33-runes so that they are not lost to us, and that their importance comes to light. Below are the runes revealed to Ragnar and sent to me -

There are certain things that came out with my own meditation -

  • The Germanic Ing-Rune features in no less than 11 staves; 11 is a number related to the 33 (11 x 3).
  • The Tiw-Rune (Arrow) appears also on 11 rune-staves. 
  • The Jera-Rune runs clockwise relating to the Cycle of the Year, whilst the similar Heimdall-Rune runs anti-clockwise relating (as it should) to the Precession of the Equinoxes. 
  • The Gar-Rune is a balance of Jera and Heimdall. The Quaert-Rune is also similar but without the upright stave.
  • The 'arrows' seem to signify movement upwards and downwards in some cases. 
  • The Stahn-Rune and the Gaefu-Rune are similar but 'opposites'; the 'Stone' and 'Gift' can be found in the 'Gift of Ing' and 'Stone of Ing'.
  • The Calc-Rune here becomes the Kaulca-Rune which obviously suggests Kalki Avatar. This is similar to the Daeg-Rune. 
  • The AEthel-Rune is here a Germanic Ing-Rune with an arrow pointing downwards; this itself is interesting. Obviously the rune refers to the 'Racial Homeland'. 
There are also another couple of things that came to me after first meditating on these -

  • There are two runes - niD and nid both of which appear to have the same name; I have interpreted the first as nith, the second nid.
  • There are also two runes named 'ihr'; the one that looks like the Uhru-Rune but upside-down I saw as Ihru, the second as Ihr.
The runes are broken into four AEttir plus the Gar-Rune which is still the 'Sacred Centre -

Fae - Uhru - Thunor - Man - Caan - Stahn - NiD - Aak

Jera - AEhu - Lagiw - Balder - Isc - AEuuas - Sighael - AElas

Ing - Daeg - Iuhr - Gaefu - Ihru - AEthel - Heimdall - nid

AEhr - Asc - Paertra - Quaert - Uuyn - Kaulca - Tiw - Ihr


The only two spellings I have changed is the NiD-nid/Ihru-Ihr since two runes cannot have the same spelling, though similar sounds. The Gar-Rune is not clear on the photo but is the Quaert-Rune with an upright stave. In regard to direction the Uhru-Ihru/Aak-Iuhr/Stahn-Gaefu runes are all made by spinning the first around either clockwise or anticlockwise, yet another directional move

Although the secrets of these runes have as yet not been revealed their importance seems clear from the way that they were revealed. Firstly, the Armanen Crystal was shown, together with the 18 Armanen Runes; from out of this Armanen Crystal the Diamond-Crystal ('Crystal of Ing') appeared. This suggests that the 33-runes have grown out of the 18-rune Armanen System, and that they have appeared here in England at this time because the Sword of Hengest passed from Germany to England. 

That each rune-stave appeared in a fiery-nature suggests that these are indeed the Runes of Ingwe (Inga-Runes); even the Is-rune (Isc) is now connected to movement (upwards-downwards) and to Ing (diamond-stave). Ingwe is similar to Agni and thus a Fiery-God. According to the Listian theory Arman is the 'Sun-Man', Ingfo is the 'Sun-God' and Istfo is the 'Wanderer'. Ingwe is thus a Sun-God and Sun-Hero in manifestation. Since we have entered the Age of Ing and that the archetype of the Coming Man ('Son of Man') is linked to Ingwe then these runes must be connected to the Age of Ing and the Aryan Heroic Archetype. Thus, not only did the 'Great King of Terror' (Black Sun) bring back to life the 'Great King of the Angles' (Ingwe) - in 1999, but also in 2012 a new set of runes connected with Ingwe was revealed to a Woden Initiate here in England.

This diamond-shape features in a number of places across these islands and is invariably described as a 'lozenge'. It occurs on the stone at the entrance of Bryn Cellu Ddu in Anglesey, North Wales, an ancient 'burial chamber' or 'tumulus'. There are even designs on some Pictish Stones which could be seen as being a more elaborate design of the Ing-Rune in its English version XX. Remembering that there was a Pictish King called AEngus/OEngus. The widespread ancient knowledge of Ingwe needs much further investigation since he seems to have left a mark throughout the nations of these islands. 

Pictish Symbol

Of course, there is the possibility that I have got this wrong and that rather than referring to the 'Age of Ing' in our times these runes are linked to At-al-land and the sinking of the 'Racial Homelands'. The AEthel-Rune does suggest this, whereas its modern version is the Ing-Rune with an upward-pointing shape underneath. Or, the new AEthel-Rune could mean a 'coming down from above' of the Force of Ingwe. These things will become clearer in time.

Whatever the case these runes have now been revealed and now open to others to come up with new ideas. It is strange that at every corner these things seem to revolve around the figure of Ingwe. Ingwe is the "Beginning and the End' or 'The First and the Last' and is the 'Son of Man(nus)' He is thus associated with The Fool of the Tarot. Note that the figure of The Fool holds in his left hand the White Rose of Albion. He is the 'Harlequin' or 'Herla-Kin', who is the Wild Hunter-God in one sense. 

(*) There seems no indication that these are 'Healing Runes', although in a sense they may well be classed as runes that 'heal' the Folk and the Land. That they are 33 in number, the same as the Anglo-Frisian Runes, links them to At-al-land. Marby considered the 33-runes to come from Atlantis.

ALU-ULA Exercise

Below is the ALU-ULA Exercise which we have used at our Folk-Moots; this has an added piece using the 'Mudra of Ingwe' which binds the Woden Initiate to Ingwe as the Divine Ancestor. If you have the Wulf Ingessunu ALU recording on the Seelenlicht CD 'Love and Murder' (Track XIV) this could be played in the background. 

Stand with your feet about 12 inches apart; relax and let a feeling of warmth pass through your body.

Form a closed fist with the right hand over the Heart Centre; now curl the left hand over the right hand. This represents the Sun and the Moon - the balance of Light and Darkness. 

Now make the Mudra of Ingwe over the Third Eye Centre by crossing the left index finger (first finger) over the right index finger, and crossing the left thumb over the right thumb beneath this. The ends of the thumbs should touch the knuckle-joints of the two index fingers. The other fingers of both hands should be closed up. This will form an X over an X - the Ing-Rune. This will also form a Germanic Ing-Rune from the Third Eye down to the Heart Centre. 

Place your open hands across the Hara-Centre (2 inches below the navel) in the shape of a Trikona (Inverted Triangle). 

Intone the Rune - "URUZ" - in a deep voice. Visualise the rune-stave URUZ in a black form. You can add a visualisation of a Black Bull if you wish, but this should be done after the visualising and chanting of the rune.

Bring your open hands upwards, level with the Heart Centre/Solar Plexus Centre; the hands should be now slightly opened and pointing away from you towards the front (in a kind of twin Lagu-Runes).

Intone the Rune - "LAGUZ" - in a slightly higher voice. Visualise the rune-stave LAGU in a red form. You can visualise a Red Deer at this point if you wish.

Now bring the hands upwards again to the Third Eye Centre where the open hands forms an Upright Triangle over the centre of the eyebrows.

Intone the Rune - "ANSUZ" - in a high voice. Visualise the rune-stave ANSUZ in a white form. You can visualise a White Swan at this point if you like.

Now repeat this, but start with ANSUZ, down to LAGUZ, and down to URUZ. This is one cycle. Do the cycle either 3 times (or 9 times if you have the time and inclination). The main thing is not to rush it through so doing it 3 times may be better for the first time. 

Note: the last latter 'Z' should be extended for as long as you can as 'zzzzzzz'; this acts as a 'buzz' which should be felt in the particular centre of the rune sounded.

The Feoh-Rune

In the Inglinga Blog I have worked on the idea of the Eternal War between the Forces of Light and the Forces of Darkness. This came about through concepts contained in the Rig Vedas. It is clear from this that the symbols of the 'Cows' and the 'Gold' are symbols of the Solar-Light of the God-Head, the Divine Light of Swar, the region above the heavens, the highest point of consciousness, the Realm of the Gods - Asgard. 

The earliest meaning we have for the Feoh-Rune is 'cattle', from the Old English Rune-Poem; the later texts replace this with 'gold'. The texts use these in reference to the physical objects and thus contain mundane meanings. Yes - this is one level of meaning but it is not the only one. To find the inner and hidden meaning we need to refer to the children's tale - Jack & the Beanstalk.

Jack is sent out by his mother with a cow which he has to swap for the necessary food to live; on the way to market he comes across a man who persuades Jack to part with the cow in exchange for some Magic Beans. He takes the Magic Beans back and his mother sternly scolds him for his action, so Jack throws the Magic Beans into the garden.

When Jack awakes the next day he finds a vast bean-stalk rising into the skies, so he climbs up to the top. There he enters the realm of an Ogre (Giant) and he finds a Golden Hen that lays Golden Eggs guarded by the Ogre, which he steals and takes back down to his mother. The next day he climbs again and finds a hoard of Golden Coins, which he steals again and takes to his mother. On the third climb he enters the house of the Ogre and finds a Golden Harp which starts to play; the Ogre returns so the wife of the Ogre hides Jack in the oven. The Ogre exclaims -

Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum, I smell the Blood of an Englishman,

Be he alive or be he dead, I'll grind his bones to make my bread.

The Ogre's wife waits until the Ogre falls asleep and lets Jack go; Jack steals the Golden Harp and climbs down the beanstalk, but the harp starts to play, awakes the Ogre who follows on the heels of Jack as he descends. Jack jumps to the floor, cuts the beanstalk, and the Ogre falls to his death. It becomes clear that the Golden Treasures were originally the property of Jack's father, so in reality he merely took then back.

We have all the elements of the Mystery of the Feoh-Rune here - the 'cow' (Golden Sun), the beanstalk (spiral ascent), the Golden Treasure (The Light of the Arya), the stealing and regaining of the Golden Treasure. We even have the runic formula for this rune - Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum. (It is perhaps expected that the formula is here set to fit into the rhyme and metre of the poem, but the formula in effect would be -

Fa - Fe - Fae - Fi - Fo - Foe - Fum

This is the Sevenfold Sound of Fehu, shortened to Fa-Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum; note that the Latin Alphabetical order is used, whether this is original we cannot tell. The Ogre mentions that he will 'grind' Jack's bones, suggesting that he is the Turner of the Mill. I have discussed this in my book Ar-Kan Rune-Lag : The Secret Aryan Way in which I recognised the 'gold' as symbolic of the Solar Knowledge and Solar Wisdom, as well as the Solar Light. 

We have to recognise that the Solar-Light is stolen by the Great Enemy, by the Forces of Darkness; I have mentioned before how this could relate to an ancient times (perhaps in Egypt) where the Aryan Wisdom was stolen when one of the Aryan Kings was slain (the Legend of Hiram Abif may be related to this). It seems clear that the Aryan Wisdom remains hidden in the lore of the counter-initiation, hidden but distorted to suit their evil aims. It has always been strange that many Western Tradition Occultists have used the Kabalah, but maybe there is some hidden worth in this lore after all, hidden but distorted (as must be recognised, of course, before using such texts). 

The above shows clearly that the runes were not merely mundane symbols for everyday objects; seeing them as such has kept the true meanings hidden. What we need to remember is that words used in ancient texts have to work at an intuitive level and not an intellectual level; they have to work through the right-brain in the way of A = B = C = D etc. rather than 1 + 2 + 3 = 6 when the left-brain is used. Thus, every word used has to be seen in a way in which it evokes many meanings at the same time, even meanings that would seem to contradict. 'Cattle' is the same as 'Gold', even though they seem quite separate and different, for they both symbolise the Solar Light in different ways. Gold is more obvious, but the cow is both motherly and nurturing, and the Sun's rays nurture and feed us with Light. Audhumla is the Cosmic Cow and Cosmic Mother. 

Those scholars who have rejected anything but materialistic meanings to the runes have 'blocked out the Light', have pushed the true meanings into the darkness, where it is the role of the Aryan Mystic to retrieve them and bring them back into the Light of Day. Those who wrote down these symbols would likely have been aware of what they were writing, but had to hide them from the Judaeo-Christian oppressors who sought to destroy the Ancient Wisdom of the Arya. It may be that they were not aware of the hidden meanings, who knows? 

The 'darkness', the 'cave' and the 'lake' are symbolic of the subconscious; it is here that the Aryan Treasure lies hidden. It is here that the 'demons' and the 'darkness' hide that treasure. It is necessary to dive deep into that darkness, to dive into the 'lake', to enter the 'cave of darkness', to slay the Dragon of Darkness that guards the Gold-Hoard, and to retrieve the Gold-Hoard, steal back the cattle, and to bring this back into the Light of Day - the conscious mind. The unconscious has to be made conscious. This is the Mystery of the Blood - the Blood-Memory.

Like the Giantess, Gunnlod, the female Joten (Giants or Ogres) aid and help the Aryan Hero who has to find the treasure. This is clear in the tale of Jack & the Beanstalk. In the Myth of Knit Mountain we find Woden retrieving the Mead of Inspiration which was also stolen by the Joten and retrieved by the Gods. The essence of these tales is that some form of self-sacrifice is needed to regain the treasure, whether it be the Mead of Inspiration or the Golden Hoard, or the Cattle. The essence is struggle, going against all odds, sacrificing all for the sake of the Divine Quest. This is also true of the Graal-Quest, for the Graal is often seen as a 'Divine Light', a brilliant, shining light at the end of the struggle. To whom does the Light belong - the Light is the right of the Arya. The Divine Light is Feoh which can be seen from the OE fah which means 'radiant' or 'bright' and is the Fire of Ingwe. (*) There is another Old English word feorh which means 'life', 'soul' or 'spirit' and which is the Flame of Life. Light and Fire are the realms of Ingwe. (See the book for more details of this rune.)

(*) Woden's Folk uses the formula FAH as a means to remember the key elements for fire-making -

F = Fuel.

A - Air.

H = Heat.

Sieg Heil!

The above, taken from the Volkische-Runes Blogspot, are four variations of the Ken-Rune, but it is the second from the left that we are interested here. This rune-shape is an upright stave with an upward-pointing 'arm'. We cannot but notice the shape is that of the so-called 'Nazi Salute' or 'Fascist Salute'. Of course, this post (once again I am afraid) opens me up to the claims of being a 'Neo-Nazi' but that is a hazard we have to overcome if the truth is to become known, and the truth will one day sweep aside all of the lies and the misunderstandings that come from the Great Liar and his Dark Servants.

The salute is made up of two distinct runes, the Sieg-Rune and the Hael-Rune (Haegl-Rune). Added to this the rune-stance is that of the Ken-Rune in its Anglo-Saxon form. We need to analyse these runes to see what the stance actually does -

  • Sieg means 'victory', so Sieg-Heil means 'Victory-Heil'.
  • Heil or Hael is a force, the mysterious force invoked by the use of this salute. It is a force of healing and health, a force of harmony and stability, a force for good since surely healing and harmony is good for us - though certain powers may not see it this way, since they promote division and disharmony. 
  • Sieg is also the Sun, the Brilliant Light, the Golden Light of the Sun, the Sun of the Arya. This is also invoked, the Power of Light and Life.
  • Sieg is the Lightning-Bolt of Thunor, of Indra, of Thor, the Lightning-Bolt that smashes through the Darkness. It is the power that breaks down barriers, that breaks through any obstacles. It is the Thunderbolt, the Bolt of the Thunder-God, the Power of Light breaking the Darkness.
  • Sieg is a Rune of the Serpent (S), the serpentine-power, the Fire-Serpent, the Power of Ingwe-Agni.
  • The Ken-Rune is the Fire-Serpent, the Inga-Fire, the Power of Ingwe-Agni; this is the upward path of Light and Fire as shown in the stave itself, the upward movement within Man, rising to the heavens, to the Divine Light, to the Divine Truth.
  • As the Force of Ingwe this salute invokes the Power of the Divine Will, the Will-to-Power, the Will-to-Victory over the Forces of Darkness and Matter.

The third rune is that used on the White Stone of Ing, and this can either be with the stave above the upturned 'V' or the stave below a 'V' (as a 'Y' shape'). In this case I feel that the former is how it is used here. 

The Ken-Rune stance suggests the invocation of the Fire of the Sun and the rune means the Sun, the Serpent but also the Soul (Sowilo). The 'Light of the Gods' (Litr Godh) is the Divine Spark, Agni-Ingwe, who is the Hidden God, the god within the Arya, the Fire of the Arya, the Fire of the Hidden Sun, the Sun concealed in the Darkness of Matter. Sieg is the victory of Light over the Darkness, 'Sieg Heil!' is the invocation of that victory, the drive towards harmony and then perfection. The drive towards Immortality and the Realm of the Gods.

The Sieg-Rune is associated with the Will; this is linked to the Lightning-Flash or Lightning-Bolt, it is that which will break through, achieve victory in the end through the Power of Will. The word 'will' is itself entirely positive, there is no hint of negativity within the sense of the word. When we say 'I will' it is a positive and powerful statement, unlike 'I might' or 'I might be able to'. 'I will' is powerful and has to be said with vigour and power - in itself it invokes power and force. Will is in fact the Power of Truth. 

The rune has a serpentine-movement related to Agni and thus to Ingwe; it is a spiral motion, a spiritual motion, the Power of the Vortex. Ken is the Inga-Fire, the Aryan Fire, the Sacred Flame of the Gods, the Flame of Knowledge, the Fire that Forges, the Fire that Transforms. It was said that great Initiates of Fire would arise to guide the evolution of Man, the Fire of Ingwe which is the Beacon-Fire shining in an Age of Darkness.
