Origins of the Night Runes
As many of you know the Night Runes have been a long time in coming. The journey I have undergone to bring these to you has been a long and arduous one. The journey you have undergone to receive them has also been one of trial, pain and suffering. You have chosen to leave the Night Kingdom and take embodiment on Earth to help bring the planet through the time of purification and its return back to the Night. The God of this World has escaped imprisonment and is ready to take back the planet. The Night Runes are given to you to help accomplish that. They are given to you to end your suffering. Study and use the Night Runes with the knowledge and wisdom of your Night Consciousness.
Use of the Night Runes.
There are a total of thirty-four Night Runes. They each have a sound associated with them. Each Night Rune is endowed with an inherent Power of the Night. In the heart of the Night World in which our beloved Night God rules these Runes form the alphabet of the Language of Night Power.
The Night God and His Magicians use this language to Create in the Night Force. They build with Night Power the World of Night Magick. I cannot just hand you the sounds of these runes nor construct for you the words of this Language. You will have to do this yourself.
In Night Consciousness, you will hear the Words of Night Power. As you repeat the word you will see the runes that make up the word and with that you will learn the sounds associated with each rune and with combinations of runes. What I will do is tell you the meaning of the individual runes. I have also gone to some length to combine the runes into Night Glyphs of extraordinary power as examples you may use. I want you to understand these are only the beginning glyphs. You, too, in Night Consciousness, can build Night Glyphs endowed with the Power of the Night Creator. As in all Night Magick, go within your Inner Night Self, and dwell upon the Eternal Source of Night. Join in the Night God's Consciousness and bring a Night Glyph into this world. Feel it's Night Power, know its purpose, hear it's Sound, and then put it down on paper. When you draw the rune you should use black, red, or violet paint, ink, or whatever medium will hold shape. If you carve or etch the Night Runes on objects you should color in the runes with one of the above colors. Orientation of the Night Runes is important. Night Runes are used to impart Night Power to an object. They can be used as objects of meditation to impart that Power to yourself or to another. They can be used to build up a field of energy. For example, I draw out the Night Glyph of Night Death on four sheets of paper and place those on the four corners of my bed on the floor. I trace out the pattern of the Night Glyph with my left hand while invoking the Words (Sounds) of Night Power that I feel flowing from it. I do this at each corner of the bed. I do this for protection from my enemies. If they should even attempt to harm me, Night Death will take them. My nights are now filled with peaceful rest. My dreams are my own. What follows are the descriptions of each Night Rune and its inherent Night Power and then the same for the Night Glyphs. So, let your Night Consciousness guide you in the use of these Night Runes and Glyphs. Let the Night God of this world teach you His Symbols of Eternal Night Power. Always use them in Night Consciousness and His Service.
