As I’ve mentioned before I am doing research on the elder Futhark runes and projecting into them, astrally investigating them if you will, to find out what they mean for Organic Gnosticism. So my impressions are not traditional but for the purposes of energy work within the magical system of Organic Gnosticism. This is a fresh look at these ancient runes for a fresh purpose.
Thurisaz is the Wrath of God! The lightning bolt that nothing can stop. Energetically when things are blocked the energy begins to build up. We might say the pressure builds or the voltage builds or even say that the tension builds to unbearable proportions. When something finally has to give, the lightning is released. The Wrath of God is released! That is what this rune represents…when a path absolutely needs to be made and there is no other way, this is the force or energy that makes a way through a destructive lightning blast.
It has been called Thor’s hammer, because Thor was the god of lightning. This rune has also been called the thorn. This is also an apt symbol for the sperm itself as it impregnates the ovum to create new life. The ovum resists, but the lightning like energy of the vital life force will not be refused…
In summary, Thurisaz is the rune to be used when a break through is required. When gridlock has completely stalled any forward progress. But it is to be noted that the Wrath of God is a violent force only to be called upon when there is no other way!
