Historically

The “Fe, Feoh” or F-Rune According to Friedrich Fischbach (1900)

This Rune stands as the most important of them all and is, remarkably, in front. The Fire-Rune shows the Fire-Drill [Feuerbohrer ] or Fire-Whirler and the Rotation Cords or Straps which were curved upwards and towards the right.

In certain modifications of the Fire-Drill symbol, the staff that is wrapped with straps became the Tree-of-Life and even the Axis of the World. Note that Mercury also directs the snakes around his staff.

As we have already explained, Fire-Worship is common to all ancient Peoples, thus it is obvious that this most sacred Character shows few Alterations. An Overview of the Development of this Rune shows that our common ‘F’ today is in Agreement with the most prominent Fire Ornaments, which are regarded as some of the oldest Blessing-Characters.

In the Character to the left, one recognizes the quadruple F, which has been interpreted as ‘fresh, happy, free, devout’. On the right, the Triquetrum (which is like a triple F), denotes the Trinity.

According to the Edda (which has been called the Germanic Bible): Odin, Wili and We (Breath-of-Life, Light and Fire) form the Entire-Godhead [Gesamt-Gottheit ]. The nordic Root-Syllables for Fire are “We ” and “Wi ” (pronounced ‘Ve ‘ and ‘Vi ‘).

In German-speaking countries, Christmas Eve is called “Weihnachten ” meaning “Fire-Night”. This is said to have come from an ancient festival in which the Heavenly-Fire, the Sunlight, is celebrated as being born anew (let us not forget about Dies natalis solis * ).

Before the Trinity of Odin, Wili and We was understood, Fire had long been venerated as the most visible and most beneficial Manifestation of the Godhead [Gottheit ]. Even today holy Fire is still ignited on the Christian Altars.

The Rules for the Fire-Worship were strict, such that no Wood was to be used which had grown in unclean Locations (such as Cemeteries), and further that properly twisted Cords were needed. The Straps of the Roman Fasces were Ash or Birch wood Fire-Staffs which have a very rich symbolism. The Greeks celebrated the Consecration of such Fire-Cords (or Tanien ) which were distributed at Festivals and they signified a Conjunction with the Holiest.

In Greek Mythology, Prometheus is known for stealing the Fire from the gods. Prometheus was originally called Pramantheus, since he possessed the Fire-Device, the Pramantha. As a Fire-Priest, he was the Foreseer, the wise Seer.

The Fire-Bird [Feuervogel ] is another particular Symbol of Fire, since the Godhead descends in Lightning like a Bird from the Heavens. An Indian myth says that a Demon pursued God transformed into a Bird. When this Bird brought the Heavenly-Fire [Himmelsfeuer ] down to Earth, it shot off a Feather and a Claw from which the plumed Tree-of-Life grew.

The assumption that the Fe-Rune only means Livestock and Wealth is easily refuted. The Connection of the Fire-Rune to Money and thus to Wealth, Livestock etc., is very old. After all, Metal was obtained through Fire and then shone like Fire. A Fire-Place signified Wealth in Primeval-Times, and the Number of Cattle was also decisive. It can also be assumed that both Livestock and Money were marked or protected by the Fire-Rune. Thus, it can be explained that the historical Development of the Fire-Rune meaning Livestock and Gold began when Fire-Worship was frowned upon.

-Paraphrase from Origin of Gutenberg’s Letters [Ursprung der Buchstaben Gutenbergs] (1900)
by Friedrich Fischbach

* Dies Natalis Solis Invicti  (“Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun”) is a winter solstice holiday celebrated on December 25th, dedicated to Helios  (a Solar Divinity).

 

The “Fa, Feh, Feo” Rune According to Guido Von List (1907)

fa, feh, feo = Fire, Fire-Procreation [Feuerzeugung ], Fire-Drill, Livestock, Property, to grow/waxing, to hike/migrating, to destroy (to shred).

The (First) One promises to help
    You helpfully
In Struggle and in Misery
    and in every Need/Necessity [Not ].

The Root-Word “fa” (which is symbolized as the “Primordial-Word [Urwort ]” in this Rune) is the triple Basic-Concept of:
      [1] “Arising” [“Entstehen” ],
      of [2] “Being” [“Sein” ] (Doing/Acting, Working, and Ruling),
      and of [3] “Passing-Away to new Arising” [“Vergehen zu neuem Entstehen” ].
Thus it represents the Impermanence of all Existence and the Firmness of the “Self [Ich ]” in constant Change (as in: transforming into something different) [Wandel ].

This Rune therefore holds that the true purpose of Wisdom is for the Development of the Future life (the Ascending), while only the Fool mourns for what is Sinking (the Descending). Therefore its motto is: “Generate thy Happiness [Glück ], and thou shalt have it!”

-Paraphrase from The Mystery/Secret of the Runes
[Das Geheimnis der Runen]
(1907) by Guido Von List

 
* Translation Note: ‘Change’ can be translated a number of ways from German. Wechsel is when something is exchanged for something else (one thing changes for a different thing), such as when changing the tires on a car. Wandel is when something is transformed into something else (the same thing transforms to be different), such as the weather is constantly changing. Wechsel can be instantaneous, while Wandel is usually a slower progression.

 

The “Fa, Feh, Feo” Rune According to Ernst Tristan Kurtzahn (1924)

Exoterically: Change/Exchange (when a thing changes for a different thing) [Wechsel ].
Esoterically: Cosmos [Kosmos ], the Ur-Fire [Urfeuer ].
Generally: Fire and Fire-Procreation, Property of all kinds (especially Livestock), furthermore ‘to grow’ and ‘to hike/migrate’ but also ‘to destroy’.

Fa in the sense of ‘to do’, ‘to make’, we find as a Root-Syllable [Stammsilbe ] in corresponding Words of many Languages. Doing, however, is conditioned by the three stages: [1] Beginning, [2] Continuation and [3] Completion. Everything that exists materially is permanently subjected to this threefold Change [Wechsel ] in time.

Be that as it may, even the Pyramids gradually crumble over many-thousands-of-years, but from the Debris and the Dust new Formations arise again, but which will also not last in their Completion. Thus, “Everything flows [Alles fließt ]”, everything mutates in every Moment, be it a Material Object or be it a Living-Being…

The Wise person recognizes this necessary Change/Exchange [Wechsel ] which encompasses all earthly and cosmic Events. They know that there is a secret Force, the Ur-Fire, which is represented as a Crucible in which the Change-of-Substance [Stoff-Wechsel ] takes place. They rejoice at what remains in untouched and untouchable Rest, namely God, of whom the wise person knows themselves to be a Part (which is nevertheless the Whole).

These Realizations of the Wise, through the Fa Rune, help in the often painful Vicissitudes of Life, and can be synthesized through this simple comforting phrase: “This too shall pass”.

The Fa Rune, therefore, belongs to the Planet Jupiter = Wuotan for the above mentioned reasons and, after all, Faust says “In the Beginning was Action [Tat ]!”.

(1924) by E. Tristan Kurtzahn

 

The “Fa, Fe, Feo” Rune According to R.J. Gorsleben (1930)

Letter F and Number 1.

Fa or Fe Rune, Cattle/Livestock, back line of the cattle, as that which is fertile based on youthful energy and which procreates itself.

Dr. Friedrich Teltscher’s Ur-word is Lenkung meaning “Direction” as well as Steering, Navigation, Guidance, Guiding, Leading.

“The First one promises to help You helpfully,
In Sorrows, Disease and Pain
In eternal Change [Wechsel ] the World converts/alternates [wandelt ]
From Passing-Away to new Becoming.”

It is the Father-“Fa-tor ”-Rune, Procreation in the Material and Spiritual realms; it also means Fire-Procreation, Fire-Drill, Livestock, Property, to grow, to hike/migrate; its Demonic is: Destruction, to shred-through, to run away, to grind-through.

The Syllable-Stems Fa, Fik gives us many German words, such as: testify/beget/procreate, Father, Priest, Pope; Fire, Spark, Leader, to make fire, Fever; Fat; Zeal/Enthusiasm, create, Fiber, Thread, Yeast; to fall/descend (glide); to take care of a sick person, to babble; from this comes the Poplar Tree; to grasp, to catch, solid, to pack, to patch.

Fiisk (which is old german for ‘Fish’) is the symbol of spiritual Further-Procreation, and therefore an Emblem for those who follow the Christ..

The Root-Word fa = Beginning, and it is at the Beginning of the Futhark-Runes, it is the Basis or Basic-Concept, the introduction of the Trinity of [1] Arising , of [2] Being , and of [3] Passing-Away. It also introduces the Circle of Events or Occurrences [also called: ‘Recurrence’], of the Eternal Return of the “fa-tors ” (the fathers, or fa-doors).

In the Indian book Dzyan, (possibly the oldest document of humanity according to Blavatsky’s Secret Doctrine), which contains the Ur- creation myth: Fo-hat” is the Ur- procreating energy in nature, Bio-Electricity, it is “That, That, That [Der, Die, Das ] !

Fo-hat” is That  which imprints the Ur-Concepts of the World-Spirit into Matter, the Ur-Procreation-Element [Ur-Zeugungs-Element ].

Fa is the Procreation-Rune, the Male- or Father-Rune, therefore the Father, Pater , indian Pader , as well as faire (‘to make’ in French), fare (‘to make’ in Italian), Latin: fa-cere = to make, fa-mily; Fa-Ma. Father- and Mother-Principles, Chinese: fu-mu .

Fo is the Name of the Buddha, of spiritual Procreation, in Chinese. His Name, Buddha, or Wudda shows it is related to Fuddha, Fuotan, and Wodan , the Breath, the Spirit, and the Fire.

Fuotan = Wodan who is the Father of all Gods and Humans.

Fa-tum is Destiny, the fa-tun = to Do Procreation ourselves!

The Fa-Rune is also the Fyr-Fire-Rune, the Symbol of the purely generated Fire, which works creatively in pure Love.

On the Fyr- Pyr- and Fire-mountains was where the Fire-Dragon or fire-spitting “Lindwurm ” guarded the Virgin, there the Heroic-Youth had to conquer the Heroic-Virgin. Siegfried too rides through the Flaming-Embers onto the Hindar-Mountain, in order to win Brunhilde for himself.

The ancient Egyptian Permaseon were what we now call Frei-Maurer or “Free-Mason” (after the God Froh or Freya) Ur-linguistically, this is derived from per, pir, pyr, Fyr, Fier, Fire, which also means Light, and the Word massen , or messen meaning ‘to measure’. They were, therefore, the Fire- and Light- Measurers (or those who measured Fire and Light), the Astronomers, the Star-Gazers, the Priests. Together with the Carpenters, they guarded the Mystery/Secret until today, without fully understanding it.

It was the Priests with whom the Human-Rune-Row, the Human-Futhark, began. Thus, the Pharaohs of the Egyptian reveal themselves. The Fa-Rune speaks to the Knower of the necessary Change [Wechsel ] of all earthly and cosmic Existence.

Out of the Fa , out of the Torch, out of the pha-llus emanates the spiritual and material Light, Procreation. The Creation-Rune also explains the Myth of the Phoe-nix Bird, which rises again from its ashes to new Becoming through Being and Passing-Away. The Bird is a Messenger and the Symbol of Love; Ve-nus is their Goddess.

The Word “Phoenix”, can be dissected into fa-na-ask = procreated-born-Ash or [1] Arising, [2] Being, [3] Passing-Away. Into this realm also belongs the Name ‘Faust’ = fa-ust, which means Action-Wish. “In the Beginning was Action!”

This Rune reminds us that Life, that Procreation, exists in eternal Change [Wechel ], but also: “Generate Your Happiness/Luck and you shall have it!”

The Fa-Rune shows the upright Man who is pointing to the left side, which is the Is-Rune, the Self-Rune [Ich-Rune ], with Arms stretched upwards (which is in a commanding Position) and which has the meaning of Procreation-Force.

Man is here, relying upon himself, having an Abundance of Procreative-Force. But he realizes and confesses himself as being Part of the Whole, namely God, the Father, the Creator, whose Image he is made in.

Man is, then, the Son of the Father, who gains that Knowledge in the Moment, when he descends from the Rune-Tree, from the Wood, from the World-Cross, from the World-Ash Tree, and goes back into the Ur .

“They offered me neither Bread nor Wine,
    then I bent down, seeking,
I Recognized the Runes, lamenting: I took them up
    Before I came down from the Tree.

Now I began to become and to be wise,
    To grow [wachsen ] and to feel well.

Upon the Word, Word formed around Word;
    and Work itself [evolved] upon Work [and thus] to Works:
Now I know the Sayings like no seer Woman
    and like none of the Children-of-Men.”

Thus Man sings the Song of Wodan’s Rune-Knowledge from the Edda, which clearly represents an Initiation-Tradition of the greatest Antiquity.

by Rudolf John Gorsleben

 

The “Fa, Fiu, Fe, Feo” Rune According to S.A. Kummer (1932-1933)

(F) The F-Rune, Fa, fiu, fe, feo, Fa-tor = Father; Ur-Fire; Procreation in the Spiritual and in the Material; Fire-Procreation; the Fire-Drill. The fire-generated, magical Force that creates all; the eternal Return of the Fa-tor; the purest Love; what constantly works creatively. – Numerical value 1.

Kummer’s Full Body Rune Exercise(s):

In the Ich-Rune-Position, the Student raises both Arms diagonally upwards with the left Arm a little higher than the right; this is the Fa-Rune-Position.

1) The first exercise aims especially to take-in the intense Solar-Forces, thereby intensifying the practitioner’s Magnetism. The Palm-of-the-Hands ought to face the Sun so that their Rays descend directly upon them.

Now the Breathing-Exercise: the Student concentrates on taking-in an intense electrical Force [starke elektrische Kräfte ] when Inhaling and that they are expelling the spent Force while Exhaling.

After that, they concentrate with an intense Willpower [starkem Willen ] on how powerful Solar-Waves [Sonnenwellen ] penetrate into their Palms and flow in a Stream-of-Force through their whole Body.

The Practitioner takes advantage of this Rune-Position every sunny day because it enables them to have a great Impact against the lower and demonic Influences; additionally, in this Position their body is charged by the Sun with a large amount of ‘electric-like Current [elektrisch-artigen Stromes ]’.

2) This second Exercise is done once a week. The Student goes out at night under the Starry Sky and takes up the position of the Fa-Rune. Then they meditate as follows:

“All-Father, Oh thou great Creator of the Worlds,
be always in Thy Son/Daughter, be in me,
I came out of Thee, and I return unto Thee in Bliss.

You are Love, shine through, enlighten me!

Aspiring, I joyfully battle for Thee!”

Then they do the following Breathing-Exercises: As they Inhale, they visualize that they take-in intense Universal-Love [All-liebe ]; and when Exhaling they expel all lower Sensations [niederen Empfindungen ].

With their Palms turned towards the Stars, they take up the Fa-Rune posture, and cosmic Force-Waves flow through their entire Body.

They softly sing or hum the “F” or “Fa”, we also recommend the Sound-Formula: “fa-fe-fi-fo-fu”.

The Student is closely connected with the great Cosmos, with the All-Mighty of all Worlds, from vast expanse: lofty Waves speak to them. They feel that they are one with the triune, high-holy God, with All-Father.

The Ur-Fire, the most secret, highest Universal-Force [Allkraft ], creates Inner Refinement and a higher Awareness-of-Self. Witness within thee, dear Student, the great, cosmic Happiness.

3) The Student has been instructed on how to take Sun- and Star-Forces into themselves with this Rune-Position. Now, however, it is also of Value to also learn to take in Waves that strengthen their spiritual, and occult Abilities.

Therefore, during the New-Moon and waxing Moon, the practitioner goes into Solitude, where they are unobserved, and faces the Moon in the Fa-Rune posture. Then they perform their Breathing-Exercise with their Hands up and their magical Gaze fixed upon the Moon. One meditates:

“Intense Lunar-Waves flow into my Hands, flow through my whole Body and fortify my Soul.

I feel charged, invigorated, free, harmonious and happy.

Occult Forces within me are awakening.

My spiritual Abilities are becoming significantly stronger.

My Sympathetic-Nervous-System and my Solar-Plexus
are charged over and over again with Forces,
that awaken and amplify my finer Senses
such as Clairvoyance, Clairsentience and Clairaudience.”

This Rune-Position should last 7 Minutes and must be repeated at least 3 times. The Student then goes to Bed immediately and avoids any Entertainment or Conversations, etc. Their Thoughts should be focused only on the Exercise.

 

Kummer’s Hand Rune Exercise (‘Mudras’ or “Rune-Grips”):

The Rune Practitioner should take up the Ich-Rune-Position (Military “At-Attention”); this is followed by a deep Breathing-Exercise three times, with thoughts directed toward physical and spiritual purification; which must also be observed with all the other Rune-Grips. Now raise the left Arm vertically upwards, the left Hand takes the Position of Fig. 1, representing the Fa- Rune Grip.

One sings “f-f-a-a” with good deep breathing; first rising from the lowest to the highest Tone, next lowering the voice to the middle tone and then rising it again to the highest. Repeat the Singing in this Position for 3 Minutes.

This is followed by a short Pause in the Ich-Rune Posture, then the whole Exercise is repeated two more times. During the rest or Pause: thoughts are then focused on the unfolding Primordial-Fire (the Ur-Fire); on Fire-Procreation; on the fire-generated magical Force; and on pure Love for the Fa-tor of all Worlds.

On the third repetition the Rune Practitioner will detect a strong Prickling sensation in the Center of the left Hand, this is the emerging Primordial-Fire (the Ur-Fire).

With daily Repetition all glands and higher Body-Centers become so energized that the collection of Subtle-Forces [Feinkräften ] in the left hand increases more and more, causing a real burning sensation. The Hand begins to appear to “blush”, and often even vibrate with a bright red Radiance, it may also happen that higher astral perceptions occur (seeing images, hearing voices, etc). These Phenomena will be different for each Rune Practitioner entirely depending upon the Blood-Constitution [Blutsverfassung ] and their spiritual Development.

The Rune Practitioner now consciously-directs the Subtle-Forces gathered in the Hand throughout the whole Body, while Singing from the highest to the deepest Tones.

Regarding the magical Application of this Grip against other Persons, I do not give instructions, but advise each Rune Practitioner to use these Grips only for their own Development. For this Rune-Grip I give the following Sound-Formulas: “fa-fe-fi-fo-fu”.

Rosicrucian and Gnostic

The “Fa” Rune According to Huiracocha

Beloved Disciple:

In our Zodiacal Course, we have tried to make known and explain the Cosmic Current that flows both from on high as well as from below, from the earth itself in order to converge in us, assimilating itself into our Glands or Magnetic Centers so as to finally realize the miracle of converting us into Gods again through them.

Because we are Gods… only now we are enclosed in the prison of our ‘physical envelope’, as Plato said, where one can not simply and spontaneously, nor without any preparation, actualize the Sacred Fire that encourages us.

The alphabet, for the majority of the Languages , begins with the A and ours (the Spanish) concludes or ends with the ZEE or ZED. Z, which is the last letter of our Alphabet, is a    Gibor Rune or “Gea”, that of Genesis, that of birth, which is realized, after having been engendered in the Fire Rune    FA…

With this F of the    FA Rune we are going to begin our study.

In order to take the first step, it is very necessary for us to verify as an amalgamation in ourselves, of all the value of this Rune ( ), Father, Vater , Fecundate, Facer , Fire, Face, Factor, Faculty, Facundia , Faena , Phallus, Front. In all these words the    FA Rune has been preserved.

According to the book of the Dzyan: “Fo-hat” is the Generating Force [Fuerza Generatriz ], the Central Fire of Nature…

The word Pyre (fire) comes from Fyr, Fir and then became the English word “First” (and the first thing that was done was the Light). From Fyr came the English Fir or “Free” that forms the word “Freemason” in order to signify that masons should be the first ones who (with the realization of their symbols) should awaken the Sacred Fire in themselves.

Throughout time, all words suffer their changes and alterations and thus the same things happened with Foutan , it became Wotan, the God of Fire for the Germans and the God or Great Spirit of the Mayas, the First of all or the Gods’ God. Pyre (fire or bonfire) has the same etymology as Pir , where the Fire burned, and as Pyramid; as well as Varon (Spanish meaning “Male”), Farones , and the Pharaohs.

The    “F” Rune is what is enclosed in the words Veruna , Verina or Verín (Spain) and in Verona (Italy).

Thus varon (or “male”) is the Universal God. We have already spoken a few times in our magazine about this same theme and we have referred our readers to Fuste, Faute, Faust, Fausto, Fuero (the Law).

We encounter this initial rune in a multitude of Spanish Shields and our brothers can study Spanish heraldry and they will be truly delighted with the many Runes that there are in those coats of arms.

FACER (Galician meaning “to Do” or “to Make”), to FECUNDATE, that is to say ‘awakening’ is the object of the exercise of this Rune.

In the early morning, when rising from the bed, we must raise both arms towards the sun, making sure that the left is raised higher than the right, and that the palms of the hands are in front of the light in the attitude of receiving its rays. In this position our body depicts the FA Rune.

Once like this, one begins to breathe rhythmically, breathing through the nose and exhaling through the mouth, but sinking the stomach so that there is no air inside, always thinking that the current of the Solar Light (Spiritual Light) penetrates into us through the arms and floods our whole body.

Let us also think that this current of Light received does not leave our body and does not leave us, but remains in our organism, because (if we have prepared ourselves properly with the previous practices from the Zodiacal Course, then) it will indeed occur, and in our aura one will notice a New kind of brightness that one did not have before.

It should be noted that the    FA Rune is the Rune of the Light, it is the one that encloses (within itself) the Christonic substance and we will speak of it in dealing with an even more important Rune and the etymology of the word CRYST-AL (All), that is to say, CHRIST ALL.

Additionally the    FA Rune is that of activity and, therefore, invites the disciple to Magic, to perpetual and constant activity, because it is not possible for one who practices the Runes to be a lazy person and to stop seeking for a continuous activity and a perennial work.

While we raise our arms towards the Sun, as we have said, all our focus must be extremely consistent with this act (of seeking continuous activity and perennial work) in order to take advantage of all the activity that produces this ‘attaining power’.

The Nordic Rose-Cross Adepts and the Runes themselves, teach us that work is not a punishment from God, a curse, to which man is subject according to the Bible.

But that work is a joy, a pleasure, therefore, working to transmute the solar forces within ourselves is how we can cultivate Art through the Royal Art itself and be true human beings through love of the truth itself, equally one must love the work through the same work, that is to say, for what it is.

Only one who assimilates this new principle in their mentality will be able to take advantage of all the benefits that comes from the    FA Rune.

Those who have suffered the misery of being a member of the Army of the unemployed, have not realized that they mentally attracted their unemployment because they have spent too much time in the desire to rest .

Whosoever thinks only of work will never fail, and (like a Cosmic Law) there is no work without reward, thus they will have it and will never feel needy.

Therefore, if the disciple meditates well, then they will recognize that this Rune encloses the key to well-being through honest work.

We do not know if this Rune can exist everywhere, it has had this same symbolic value, but it is true that wherever it was embedded, there always lived a hard-working and industrious people, whether in Mexico, Central America, Brazil – where we will find it on the banks of the Aiary-Yakare-Cachoeira river, in Peru, Argentina, all over the East and even in the wooden calendars of the Northern peoples.

Every time we see this Rune, WE ARE FIRMLY CALLED TO HONORABLE WORK, that is to say, to a tenacious labor like the one executed by the Aztec People and even the Inca, when demanding and raising their great Temples and monuments.

Once the Disciple has verified the exercises that are recommended to do in the morning when rising in order to charge oneself and inundate oneself with the Solar Force, then it is advisable to also go any night, but with as much frequency as possible, to a secluded place and face the starry sky, raising the arms, taking the same position and bursting forth into this evocation:

“UNIVERSAL FORCE, POWERFUL DEITY,
YOU WHO IGNITE THE DIVINE LIGHT
AND IRRADIATE IT THROUGH ALL THE COSMOS,
LET YOUR SACRED FIRE INFLAME AND BLAZE WITHIN ME
SO THAT I MAY TRANSMIT THAT LIGHT
TO ALL THOSE PERSONS I COME IN CONTACT WITH…”

this evocation should be said with all fervor and volitional courage, one must then pronounce the following syllables elongated feeling united with the Great All, with the Infinite Cosmos, and as if being in the middle of it: “FA… FE… FI… FO… FU…”

   FA… in itself encloses all the force/strength, all the energy of Fecundation in the absolute sense of the word.

Seek , Oh Disciple!, To Fecundate all your success and all your happiness with this energy and then they will come towards you in the nocturnal silence of your spiritual night like precious gifts…

   FA… has 1 as its numerical value, it is like a determined, firm and indisputable “I WILL [YO QUIERO ]”.

Assimilate it, Oh Disciple! And the energetic potentiality of your sleeping Willpower will take on new vigor so that the God within your interior (who encourages you) will awaken to a new and glorious rebirth.

We are given a beautiful description of the Unity by the Kabbalah, she tells us that people who live the ‘one’, will always be good Engineers, Technicians, Inventors, Diplomats and excellent Speakers and only those who do not know how to assert themselves in the volitional part of this ‘one’ energy, will be mere talkers without results with a passive verbiage who will arrive at nothing.

MERCURY, as a mobile Planet, is the one that influences those who live under the direct action of the    Fa Rune… its preferred color will be specified as VIOLET, because with this color the Cosmic Forces are given their beginning.

In the coming instructions, we will unite several Runes together and penetrate more deeply into the Kabbalistic studies of the North until they come to, frankly and plainly, dominate the Science of Sciences which is Magic.

MORNING AND NIGHT

-Paraphrase from Runic Course [Curso Rúnico] (1931-1935)
by Arnoldo Krumm-Heller (Huiracocha)
available in Gnostic-Rosicrucian Runology

 

The “Fa” Rune According to Samael Aun Weor

Certainly, the SOLAR FIRE is what is necessary in order to make and develop (within each one of us) that possibility of becoming a true Human Being. We need to fecundate our own intimate nature if what we truly want is the SOLAR HUMAN BEING to be born within ourselves.

A ‘Judo of the Spirit’ exists; we are referring to the Runic Exercises. These exercises are formidable in order to attain the Awakening of the Consciousness.

Whosoever wants to work with this Judo must begin with the Rune of Mercury (the    FA Rune), which has a violet color that originates extraordinary cosmic forces and encloses all potency, as well as the impulse for fecundity.

We need the breath of the Fohat , the Pentacostal sparks, in order to fecundate our own Psyche, in order for us to become Self-Conscious.

If we analyze the practice of the    FA Rune, we can affirm that Pranayama, Prayer, Meditation and a specific sacred Posture exist within it.

Practice(s): When we get out of bed, with immense happiness we must salute each new day by raising our arms towards our Lord, the Sun-Christ. The left arm must be a little more elevated than the right one, and the palms of our hands must remain before the light in that ineffable and sublime attitude of one who really longs for receiving the solar rays.

This is the sacred posture of the    FA Rune. Thus, this is the method in order for us to work with Pranayama, by inhaling the air through the nose and exhaling it through the mouth in a rhythmical way, and with much faith.

In those instants, let us imagine that the light of the Sun-Christ penetrates within us through the fingers of our hands, then circulates through our arms, inundates the whole of our organism, and finally reaches the Consciousness in order to stimulate it, to awaken it, and to call it into activity.

One must also practice this Runic Judo in the mysterious and divine nights, before the starry sky, with the same posture, and praying like this:

“WONDERFUL FORCES OF LOVE,
revive my SACRED FIRES,
so that my CONSCIOUSNESS will awaken.
FA… FE… FI… FO… FU…”

This short yet great prayer can and must be prayed with all of our heart, as many times as we wish.
