Letter of Instructions # 18

The Rune GIBOR 

by Karl Hans Welz
Gibor is the Rune of the universe.  After initiation Gibor leads to a new cycle.  This initiation of GIBOR to be a Rune Master brings you in touch with the Runic symbolism as a whole.  If, after this initiation, you pass through the eighteen Runes again, then you will do so in awareness of the symbolism as a whole.  New revelations will then follow, a better understanding, and still more powerful uses that you may apply responsibly.

GIBOR allows you to be ONE with the universe, ONE with the realms of creation.  If you understand the hidden meanings of the Runes YR, NOD, and EH, GIBOR will reveal itself to you.

The initiation to be a Rune Master will open you up to many new insights.  With this initiation you will receive the keys to many new and powerful practices.

After you have become a Rune Master, it will be important that you help others with your Runic knowledge.  I do suggest that you begin to build your own power base.  This means that you should form a Runic castle, i.e., a group of persons who are dedicated to study Runes.  This is so because group practices can help you develop much stronger energies than practice by yourself would do.  Group practice can also turn out to be a significant factor in your further advancement in your Runic work.  As your students ask you about Runic practice, you will find yourself drawing answers and knowledge from realms that you were not aware existed.  Consequently your power over Runic realms increases, your skills become more proficient, and your path becomes easier to follow.  In brief, you will bring your life more and more under your own control.

The Initiation

This letter of instruction concerns itself in the main with your initiation.  Since this is a correspondence course, I am going to prepare you for a self initiation.  If you do have the opportunity to be initiated by a Rune Master of the Great, Time-less Brotherhood of Rune Masters, you should do so.  If you have formed a castle, you can share the ceremony of your own initiation with members of the castle.

Persons who practiced the eighteen lessons jointly may perform a joint initiation.  In this case it is important that they join their outer as well as their inner Rune realms.

In the following I am giving suggestions of how you set up your Rune realm for the initiation.  If you followed well the lessons, You are aware, of course, that you may set up your realm following your own preferences.

Items needed for an Initiation

1.  An altar, preferably with an altar cloth.  The cloth may be either black or white.  A clean table may serve as an altar.
2.  Rune staves.  Your personal set may form a circle on the altar.  Crystal staves with a center crystal are very good for your initiation.
3.  An incense burner with Runic incense.  Frankincense is a god substitute.
4.  A power rod or dagger.
5.  A Hammer of Thor.  It is good if this hammer has your personal Runes inscribed.
6.  A cup or chalice with water or wine.
7.  Candles.  You may use eighteen candles, each of which has one of the Runes inscribed.
8.  A robe.  You may also practice nude.


Do these preparations up to three days before you practice the ceremonial of initiation.

1.  Bless the power rod (or dagger):  Hold your hands above the power rod, chant one Rune after the other, and project the energy of each Rune into the power rod.
2.  Bless the water or wine.  Use your power rod and project with it energy into the water or wine.  Chant all Runes, one after the other, and project their energies into the water or wine.
3.  Bless the incense.  Do this the same way as you did the water and power rod.
4.  Charge the Hammer of Thor, again the same way, by projecting each of the eighteen Runes into it.
5.  Lastly, bless each of the eighteen candles, one by one, by projecting the corresponding Rune into it.

The Ceremonial

Immediate preparation

1.  Write date of ceremonial and outline of it into your magical diary.
2.  Cleanse yourself in some form of ritual bath.
3.  Put on your robe.  Some followers of the old religion prefer to practice nude.
4.  Set up the outer Rune realm, altar, etc.
5.  Imagine a sphere around the whole operation.  Charge the sphere, focussing on protection.

The Song of GIBOR

GIBOR -- I am the Rune Realm.  I am the universe.  I am the creative realm of the universe.  I am participating in the creation-eternal of the universe.  I am the wheel of life.
GIBOR -- I am creating my universe.
GIBOR -- An eighteenth I learned, but I would not
          Let this know just anyone else, for everyone knows
          The best for oneself:  That which leads to the end of the songs.
          Only One is to know, who is in my arms as my lover.
GIBOR -- Giver, God-Everything, God-Universe.  I experience the dance of the creator and the created.  I am union of giver and gift!
GIBOR -- Union of two forces, two egos, and One cause.
GIBOR -- Union of all into one and one into all.  I am the runic realm from which I am creating the universes.  From this creation I am in a new cycle of Runic experience.
GIBOR -- GIBOR reveals the secret of the lover who is the universe.
GIBOR -- Rune of Divine gifts manifesting in everything, manifesting in the universe.  My gift to myself.
GIBOR -- Rune of Oneness with the forces of the universe  Oneness with the All-Divine.
GIBOR -- Being One in Two, we experience All in One.
GIBOR -- GIBOR and Gea, Gibur and Gyfa, two forces, two souls, One being, One and Creating, unified in cosmic ecstatic joy.  A new cycle emerges which is One.
