I truly think patience is a gift. I have to admit, I am not a very patient person at all! If this resonates with you, or if life has been putting you to the test lately and you are looking for a way to boost your own patience, these runes below can help you! Let’s see which runes can help us and how we can incorporate them into our craft.
The best Elder Futhark runes for patience
Here are the best runes for patience. You can use as many or as few of them as you like, it’s your call! Further on, I am going to explain how to choose the right rune for patience and make the most of it!
With Eihwaz we can bring awareness to the cyclical process of death and rebirth and understand that each time we accept struggles, obstacles, and setbacks with patience we become a little more alive.
Each time we surrender, accepting the overwhelming forces of the universe, we become a little stronger. This is the profound meaning and value of Eihwaz, the rune of initiation into the shamanic journey, of the entrance into the mystery of life, the myth, the symbol, the ritual.
Art is a means that helps us to broaden the narrow vision of the ego, the egoic consciousness desires life, security, wealth, success, love, while for the ego everything must have a meaning, it must follow a predictable and reproducible rational logic.
Thurisaz is all about being patient in your journey towards the best version of yourself. It’s the Spirit who allows you to see the true face of what, until now, has prevented you from telling your true story. We are never alone on the path of the heart; the Spirits accompany us, put a hand on our shoulder and guide us along the path. It’s not easy but you need to be subversive and rebellious to find yourself.
Following the path that allows the arrival of our true narration means giving oneself to oneself, being creators, designers, and builders of the wonderful work that can become our life. If an alleged love makes us unhappy it is not love. If a job turns off our creativity, it’s not the job for us.
If a memory, even if happy, keeps us still in the stagnation of attachment, it is a memory to let go of.
If family members or people we are fond of stifle our enthusiasm or keep us tied to certain beliefs that clip our wings, then we simply tell them the truth. You only have to accept all coming around with patience and openness to embrace the best version of your dream life and what the universe has in store for you.
In all its variants, the rune Jera has the meaning of “season” or “year” in the sense of perfection. It represents the eternal cycle of time, Jera represents the completeness of a cycle of any duration, mostly a one-year cycle.
Here, the figure of the rune shows the meeting of the four seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. In the runic year, it is the demarcation mark of the lowest point, midnight / mid-winter, the period that can be considered to be the beginning and the end of the cycle.
Jera thus physically manifests the aspects that are inherent in Hagal. It represents the good harvest, wisely obtained by patiently waiting and accepting the cycle nature of life itself. When we act in harmony with the natural order, in accordance with its laws, amazing things happen.
