Bind Runes

A practical bindrune may combine two or more runes to form a single design representing the runic powers of the included runes. The purpose of the bindrune is to enable a controlled release of those runic energies for the benefit of the user, or someone he or she wants to help or influence.
Personal bindrunes may consist of your initials in the runes of your choice, creating a powerful ownership spell.
Bindrunes can only be used to help people, not to harm them. Any attempt to place a curse, prevent a person doing something, or to make something nasty happen to them will inevitably backfire on the user.
Although a bindrune is a blending of runic characters, each rune included in the design has to retain its own individuality, it has to be visible as an entity within the whole. It is best to limit the design to no more than four or five characters so that it can still be symmetrical, balanced and pleasing to the eye.
There are exceptions to this rule, however. Some very ancient and highly effective bindrunes incorporate 6, 7 or even 8 different runes. But generally speaking, the simpler the design, then the more effective the bindrune will be.
Bindrunes are devised for specific purposes. They can generate mental activity such as memory, logic, emotion, enlightenment, strength of will, courage, fairness, clarity of thought. They can aid physical actions too, such as health, strength, speed, endurance, and all the 5 senses.
Bindrunes can produce a runic field of energy to protect your person, your home or possessions, your job or your business good will, and they can enhance relationships by encouraging harmony, partnership, love or sexual attraction.
You could easily draw a bindrune on a piece of paper, wood, stone or anything and carry it with you hoping that it will have some effect. But the unempowered bindrune will be so weak that you would probably not notice any difference.
For a bindrune to work effectively it must be empowered (some runemasters refer to this process as consecration).
The choice of wood is important to the effectiveness of a bindrune, as well as choice of color if you are painting rather than carving or burning. Use your altar and incense, as well as any candles and music you prefer, while making the bindrunes. Cast a circle if you feel it necessary.
When the bindrune is complete it is then sequestered in a secret place for a period under special conditions. The place is a ley cross - a point of very high earth energy where two positive leylines cross each other. Alternately, you may again uses your altar, or meditate on the purpose of the bindrune to charge it with energy.
Once the bindrune is released from sequesterment, the imbued power is awakened and invoked on behalf of the user.
