rune trios: gebo | ansuz | mannaz

©2021 Michael Raven

striving to offer
more than i demand
fill my lungs with
your breath, hrafnaguð
pierce my mind & heart
open the gate &
guide me from
this myrkur path
i've wandered

gebo: “gift”, exchange, generosity, reciprocation, hospitality, honor, mystic union, oaths, favors; murk: greed, dishonesty, over-sacrifice, bad guest, disloyalty, uneven exchange

ansuz: “a god”, communication, meaning, breath, inspiration, transformation, word power, acquisition of wisdom, ecstatic experiences; murk: misunderstandings, manipulation by others, bad advice, hypocrisy

mannaz: “mankind”, mind, memory, social order, sustainability, mental and spiritual power, self-actualization; murk: depression, self-delusion, arrogance, social division, chaotic mind, forgetfulness

Argument: Ever evolving this process, I have decided that three is a sacred number for runes (as is nine) and have expanded the number of runes to include in my exploration. Please do not confuse this for a wyrd reading, there is no divination implied in these rune explorations. However, there is always shamanic and internal alchemy being explored.
