One of my favorite prayers is from The Book of Runes. The Rune Sowelu, is a rune of great power representing Wholeness~~Life Forces~~The Sun's Energy. "It marks a time for recharging and regeneration right down to the cellular level...letting the light into a part of your life that has been secret, shut away."
While saying this prayer, known also as the Gayatri, gaze at my LIGHT Mandala and visualize the sun's golden rays streaming forth into the world, shining into your heart and out into the world.
"You, who are a source of all power,
Whose rays illuminate the whole world,
Illuminate also my heart
So that it too can do your work."
Then envision the light from your heart going out to the whole world and back to you again
The Runes are an ancient Scandinavian alphabetic script. Each letter possesses a meaningful name and signifying sound. Runes were used for poetry, inscriptions, and divination. They were not a spoken language. They can be used similarly to the tarot for spiritual guidance and reflection. From The Book of Runes by Ralph Blum
