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.
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
An altar, preferably with an altar cloth. The cloth may be either
black or white. A clean table may serve as an altar.
Do these preparations up to three days before you practice the ceremonial of initiation.
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.
Write date of ceremonial and outline of it into your magical diary.
