Today, inspired by the activities of a friend, I begin a new series - Rune Rituals. This is something I never imagined myself doing, but this is also why the saying "never say never" exists. Most importantly, I am entering into this ritual, because I believe it will help me with my goal and not out of any act of desperation. I think that is the key to being successful.
Now, while my friend was showing gratitude for having received some unexpected money, I want to bring money to me this year through my writing. So, my reason for using Fehu is different.
Briefly, here's my reasoning for choosing this as my first ritual. For those of you who don't know, I have written a novel, called The Son of Nine Sisters, and am working on the sequel. Through my company, The Jera Institute, I offer professional writing and editing services and lead a variety of writing and communication workshops. It is through these endeavors that I want to make enough money going forward, so that all I have to do is write. Now, on with the ritual.
To begin, I made a circle out of money and added some other money inside the circle. The bowl is full of coins from around the world, because I hope to sell my writing talents internationally. The small pile of bills includes Canadian and American dollars, because I believe this is where I will derive the majority of my income this year. My novel is in the circle to represent my writing. As this is, in my mind, my greatest writing feat to date, it was the most appropriate item to include. The final items in the circle are three Runes, all Fehu and all made of different material. The ceramic Fehu is from my original set of Runes, the paper Fehu is from the set of temporary Runes I made last summer, and finally, the guiding Rune, is drawn in water (see image below) next to the small pile of money.
Once I completed the chant, I pulled the energy toward me, nine times from the circle and then nine times from above and beside me. I ended by reaching my arms out in the shape of Algiz, hands open too, then pulling them into my chest, crossing them in front of me, bowing my head and saying, "I embrace this gift."
Keep in mind that, although I have been using the Runes for readings for several years, this is my first ritual. Please let me know how and if you use the Runes in your rituals. I will let you know how this one works for me. Have a fruitful week!
