Armanen Rune-Yoga Lesson 10: AR-Rune
By popular request, I am posting my basic Rune-Yoga lessons on here for educational use!
Rune-Yoga, or Stadhagaldr, is a unique part of the Armanen tradition, per S.A. Kummer, going back to ancient Rune-Masters as a physical and spiritual meditation exercise for both warriors and mystics, and has some parallels in other Indo-European exercise traditions. It is heavily based in Od-energy work. Rune-Yoga postures are practiced standing up, forming the shape of the Rune to manifest its energy flow. The text in this basic course is my own, though heavily inspired by the work of Guido von List, S.A. Kummer, and Karl Spiesberger. Some of what you see here will look very familiar to you if you have read their books, and some things will be new, based on my own insights and experience in the practice.
Rune-Yoga has its own terminology, mostly in Old Norse and Old High German. Postures or Asanas are called Stodhr. Rune Mantras are called Galdr. The Mudras or hand positions are called Handstodhr. The Handstodhr can be practiced in a sitting pose, either silently or while singing the same rune's Galdr, anywhere that practicing full Stadhagaldr is not possible. There are also some more advanced Handstodhr combinations used in a live Rune-Yoga session.
Rune #10: AR
Meanings: All that which is beautiful and Sun-like, change to good, virtues, honor, glory, nobility, rewarding work. Power of arising, power to banish darkness and drive away evil. Completion, light, Divine spirit, Rising Sun, Solar Eagle, Phoenix.
AR is the Rune of the Rising Sun, burning away darkness and bringing control of the subconscious mind. AR is the Rune of re-framing, and refreshing the spirit. AR brings change in actions (karma) from within, and removes doubts. Use AR to attract Od-force, banish regressive or reactive karma (en-karma) and produce proactive, ascending karma (Garma).
