Weekly Rune – Ingwaz

Jera - Intentional Insight's Weekly Rune by S. Kelley Harrell

 

Ingwaz (or Inguz) – People of Ing – We’ve been in this rhythm of movement, then coasting for a while, now. So it would seem with the frequent intermittent presence of Ingwaz, suggesting that we take time to process our journey and let it root into change.

We tend to look for progress as this steady jaunt to some expected outcome, marking completed items off a list along the way. Ingwaz reminds us that true progress is measured not by our ability to reach the finish line first, but to reach it in a way that supports and fosters our integrity, shares our truth, and inspires others to hold to theirs. In short, Ingwaz cautions us that plans change, and it’s okay to roll with what comes. In fact, if we find that our plans have changed and kick in the reflex to fight it, the things we want most can’t come into being. No matter what lies ahead, what plans have been made, what desires motivate, all we can really work with is the present. Give it the attention it deserves, the regrouping we and our desires deserve.

Ingwaz is what I call a ‘hinge’ Rune, in that it’s about that tiny space–or maybe nonspace–between Here—> and <—There.  It’s not so much about the events themselves, where we started, or where we end up.  It’s about how the whole process changes us inside.  It’s about finding that well of nonspace, the inner Void where we create ourselves every day, and conscientiously, intentionally beginning that creation process again.

Weekly Rune – Ingwaz

Ingwaz (or Inguz) – People of Ing – It’s quiet time.  A lot of ground has been covered lately, and the solitude needed to process that journey and let it root into a changed course is now.  In western culture, even among spiritually well-intended folk, is the drive to Go Go Go! and not allow time for what has been upturned, re-evaluated, calibrated, and set into motion to fly, be free!.  Somewhat addicted to the allure of expanding consciousness, we want to sustain that esoteric high.  We constantly stretch for the goal, then wonder why we burn out, or the goal shifts just left of center.

I’ll tell you why:  everything must root, and to properly ground into the place where we need to grow, we have to make peace with being still.  Of course being still doesn’t mean doing nothing. Solitude requires a tremendous amount of effort, particularly for those not comfortable being mindful.  That is exactly how all of the good-living practices, healing work, and study come to fruition.  This is the point that they become intuition.

Ingwaz is what I call a ‘hinge’ Rune, in that it’s about that tiny space–or maybe nonspace–between Here—> and <—There.  It’s not so much about the events themselves, where we started, or where we end up.  It’s about how the whole process changes us inside.  It’s about finding that well of nonspace, the inner Void where we create ourselves every day, and conscientiously, intentionally beginning that creation process again.

Worked muscles must rest.  Wounds must mend. Knowledge and experience must marinate into wisdom. So let this time be the point that rest, allow, and in doing so engage our deepest truth.

Ingwaz (or Inguz) – People of Ing – Lie low this week. Whatever trail of change has been blazed, be assured that the end results are in sight. Ingwaz cautions us to stay attentive to those last few details, dotting the i’s, crossing the t’s, so that as we round the corner to the finish line, we can know we’ve covered all of the deeper concerns.

Drawing on deep inspiration, Ingwaz may not seem to have the desired momentum, the go-getter drive we want right now.  However, all good plans must be carefully laid.  Think of this time as the gestation of dreams. The basic framework is in place, born of dramatic change, likely intense work. Final touches gloss on more slowly, gently, intentionally.  It is all coming together, just stay attuned to the inspiration driving it all, and move as led.

Ingwaz (or Inguz) – People of Ing – After a few months of churning through this cycle of change and questioning our skills to move through it, finally it’s done. Ingwaz symbolizes that our wisdom prevails over external challeng.  In short: where there is a will there is a way.  This part is finished.

Ingwaz is in the third aett, also called Tyr’s aett. What is significant here is that Tyr refers to Tuisto, the legendary god, who when pressed to survive and preserve mankind, sacrificed his hand to the fiendish Fenrir. The result was Tuisto’s creation of another iteration of the human race, among them–you guessed it–the People of Ing (also the Herminones for you Harry Potter fans, and the Istaevones). The message here is that from dire straits amazing outcomes are born.

This outcome likely doesn’t look as expected. Strike that–it most certainly isn’t what was expected at all.  The thing is, even if the outcome hasn’t readily presented itself yet, take heart in the wisdom that this cycle has completed.  Not only are we greeted with that good news, but with the comfort of knowing a new, brighter cycle is beginning.  With that knowledge we can rest in new wisdom and inner guidance.
