If you are new to working with bindrunes, I suggest you read the introductory bindrune post here, then return to this post to read about this specific bindrune.

As the Wheel of the Year turns, many of us are looking at significant changes in our lives, sometimes multiple changes happening all at once. This bindrune is designed to help you focus your energies and face those changes with confidence.

Bind Rune for Confidence - Uruz, Ac, Teiwaz

Bind Rune for Confidence – Uruz, Ac, Teiwaz

Uruz (brown): As the base of the bindrune, Uruz provides strength and energy for movement. Once we have decided on an action, we must do something to start that action. Uruz gives the boost needed to begin our work, and to keep us in motion once we have started. This is the earthy, and yet wild, strength of the aurochs, and while it is a great resource, we need to combine it with other runes to channel its energy in constructive ways.

Ac (red): Strength in flexibility and persistence. We need the action energy of Uruz to start, and the adaptable strength in Ac to keep going. As we move forward with our plan, we encounter unexpected plot twists, both positive and negative, that require us to change our methods and timeline. Ac helps us make the best use of the positive developments, and to work around the apparent obstacles and delays. Raven Kaldera likens Uruz to the irresistible force, and Ac to the immovable object. We need both kinds of strength to build and maintain our confidence.

Teiwaz (green): We are more confident when we believe we are doing the right thing, and for the right reasons. Engaging in deceitful actions, telling lies, and manipulating people is one approach to getting what we want, but we don’t feel good about ourselves or our actions, and that undermines our confidence. Thus, we incorporate Teiwaz, bringing in Tyr’s energy of honor and duty to keep us focused on right action as we make our plans and move forward. Setting our intentions for the highest good of all is a direct way to remind ourselves that we are acting to make changes that are of shared benefit, not for our benefit at the expense of others’ well-being. Teiwaz helps to channel the wild energy of Uruz, and reminds us that true confidence comes from right action.

The bindrune on the left was done in colored pencil. The one on the right was done with calligraphic marker. They are the same bindrune, shown in two different media to give an idea of how the same bindrune looks different depending on how it is created.

You could also put a drop of sage oil on the rune for a bit of aromatherapy reinforcement.

Wishing you a successful week!
