A very basic brush of the surface of Runic Galdr
Casting Instructions for ‘To Invoke a Rune’
Ill begin by trying to describe Galdr in the simplest way I can. Galdr roughly comes from the term to crow. It is a verbal incantation type of magic. Either sung or chanted. Rune galdr is the singing of the runes. You literally invoke the conscious nature of the rune itself. You vibrate its name and inhale for it to come into your life. You actively welcome and call forth the nature and very being of the rune.
Well start with Fehu. Beginning galdr is significantly more than sitting down and singing. You must live with the rune, and be aware that it lives. Its mystery is active and conscious.
Begin this journey by learning everything you can about Fehu. Its puzzle, its pronunciation, its uses. Eventually we can agree the general importance of Fehu is wealth. For this exercise we will concentrate on material wealth.
To expand living with Fehu carry a runestone of Fehu in your pocket as often as you can. Whenever you have time hold on the rock and meditate on the essence of Fehu. As corny as it seems, become one with Fehu. I suggest you eventually do this will all of the runes. Also study the Anglo-Saxon and Norwegian rune poems of Fehu.
When you have learnt about Fehu you can move on to galdr. Sit in the dark, alone, and in silence. Hold the rune in your hand, or perhaps paint it on your body.
Finally work yourself into a deep trance. A trance that feels like you’re barely alive and are submerged in the ground. Once that feeling was reached you can start.
Begin by humming softly. Then slowly start to chant or sing Feeeehhhuuuu Over and over again sing its title. Then finally repeat this.
Fe fe fe fe fe fe fe fe fe
Hu hu hu hu hu hu Fehu
Do this over and over again and feel the essence of the rune filling you up with its aspect. Do this until you feel it’s done and are confident. Exit the trance gradually and invite Fehu for its present.
