I have been talking about the runes and the power and purpose of each one of them as you may read all about the runes in the Lable called “Runes”, where you actually have to go after you read this post to know each one of them so you will be able to make Bindrunes if you don’t already know them and how to work with the runes.
What are Bindrunes? Well, as the name indicates it is the union of the runes in one specific symbol in order to bind the power of those runes together so they may work and help in specific tasks instead of having separate runes. Normaly, and what is most seen, it is the binding of 2 runes only, but it is possible of course to bind more than just two, in some cases you can even bind 9 to 13 different runes.
Bindrunes are very easy to make, if you have a specific wish, if you need to protect someone you care for, if you need inner strength, or whatever you might need, be that strengthen the mind and help in memory, logic, emotion, enlightenment, strength of will, courage, clarity of thought and so on, you can make your own bindrune with the specific runes for those purposes, of course you need to take into account, that you may only ask for the power of those things that will help you to become a better person, keeping your freewill, because no rune will help you in any task that you might have ahead of you, no rune will make things for you, asking for protection for a loved one or yourself is one thing, asking for wealth, great power and an easy life or easy work is another, you only get those wishes if you work hard, if you have the strength to carry on, the will, the spirit, the intelligence, you may only ask for the simple things to help you achieve what you really want, having those, it is up to you to know how, when or with whom will you use the gifts given to you. Also another thing that you have to keep in mind is that Bindrunes can only be used to help people, not to harm them, trying to harm someone with bindrunes it just doesn’t work.
You can make a drawing, a painting or carving the rune in any item you want, a piece of paper, or wood, even at the walls of you home, you can carry the bindrune with you and hope that is will help you in this things you wanted, after you have carefully chosen the runes you want for the purposes you need, so before you do any bindrune, you need to know each one of them and what are the powers, the gifts of those runes. Bindrunes might work after you creat them, but of course there is always the need to “awake” those powers, like in ancient times, when shamans used chanting to cal upon the powers of the runes or the bindrunes.
Bindrunes are very special because they are of our own creation, of course there is the possibility that another person might have a similar or equal symbol, that is common when binding 2 runes, but the more runes you bind and creat a new symbol, the less it is likely that someone else has the same symbol.
For a bindrune to work properly some people still use chanting, they cal upon the name of the 2 or 3 or more runes, each of the name chanted for a few seconds, a long sound, or chanting the initials of each rune creating a name for the symbol, for example, you are trying to bind the rune Algiz with Berkana, so you will chant the name of the first rune and after that you will tell the purpose of it, what is that you want from it and tell it that you will bind it with the other rune and you say the name, after that you chant the name of the next rune and you do the same process, after you have finished in telling what you want from those runes you chant in the end the initials of each rune so it might sound like Alg…. Ber… or Algi…Bera… and thus you creat a name for it and in your mind you visualize the binding of those runes in just one, you visualize the symbol you have created while calling upon the runes. Of course there are other ways, but this one is the easiest, the safest and more personal, and i’m not here to make things hard, my purpose with this post is to reach everyone and try to explain things in a way that everyone will understand.
There are also very personal bindrunes, where you bind the runes equivalente to the initials of your name, to reinforce your personality and emphasize the positive qualities and skills that you have.
If you are not sure how to bind runes and for what purposes, i will give you an example, someone that you love or care about and that person will travel and you want the person to be safe, you might use the rune Raido which is the rune for travelling and you can combine it with Berkana which is a rune of protection, of course there are other runes of protection, but some are for female, othets for male, others give protection in specific cases, so you have to be careful when choosing the runes to bind.
