Considered to be the seed of cosmic primal life, Hagalaz is symbolic of the Nordic ice egg (or hail), crystalized in form through magik and sacred geometry (shape within space). It speaks to the complete potential of the multidimensional paradigm being the seed of manifestation. Residing between Sowilo and Isa in the Futhark, Hagalaz can be seen as the literal product of two opposites being the creative potential and destructive force of honest growth. The primal force of form, Hagalaz is the number nine, the number of completeness and consists of the figure for every other rune when in it’s 6 faced form (sacred flower). This gives Hagalaz the essence of the Rune Mother or nebula, birthing all things forth from the chaotic expansion of unstoppable cosmic will. Unforgiving and unpeturbed, Hagalaz is the potency of neutrality, being the catalyst of creation in polarity, the unity of fire and ice, and the balance of energy and antimatter. Hagalaz could be considered the cosmic harmonic convergence as fractal potential or an on going evolution within the laws of the multiverse. Often associated with the Norn Urd, Hagal is representitive on the past and it’s residue being a consistent restriction of momentary awareness in the present. Addressing habit of the mind and reaction of the ego may liberate such addictions of the primal individual. Often associated with Hailstones, Hagalaz is much the frozen, undetered force of change that can reshape the landscape of the self previously held in mind, delivering the thaw for the correct season of the soul. The force of force and the determination of the cosmos, Hagalaz is dominance over the ego mind, habit and reactionary emotional body. The balance and polarity of all things held in cosmic place by form and force, personified as the self in alignment with the self (regardless of sensitivities). Hagalaz serves as a wake up call from the universe, reminding us that growth is personal, change is constant and awareness is key. It is frame of mind that is the frame of potential. Generally considered a negative rune by it’s askings, Hagalaz is irreversible in casting but may speak to amplified struggles when in opposition. The Wrath of nature, nurturing and loving in it’s intention and undetered by the ease of transition, may be a daunting concept to the over controlling and hyper reactive mind. If taken personally, Hagalaz can be viewed as the cruel universe messing with the life of an individual or a uncaring God intent on making life miserable. If taken with faith, Hagalaz is the hand of God, the sword of the universe, the bigger picture and unpaved pathway to alignment with the self. Destruction of the old paradigm is needed for a birthing of the new as a complete change requires a complete deconstructing of convenience and security. It is the death of what we know, the death of who we were, the death of our dreams, that we fear in Hagalaz. Such fearful thinking gives rise to a personal aversion toward the message of change and reform, making one stubborn in nieve panic. We are the first to suffer for our misery, the first to be confused for our confusion, the first to fear for our fear, therefore, what is considered “injustice” to the egoic mind, is to the soul, a highlighting of areas of reoccuring habits that are dead to purpose. Destructive and uncontrolled forces serve beyond the reach of mortal hand, shaping the soul beyond the reach of the mortal mind. All destruction is a form of creation as disaster and chaos, confusion and ordeals are the catalyst for the embodiment of total reform. When this is understood in the heart, Hagalaz is not viewed as a hardship, but as a sacrificing of the comfortable but outdated, for the greatest good of all. While this may not be comfortable, authenticity is always the objective. Embodying a nonreactional bias toward the delivery of Hagalaz’ teachings is imparitive for greatest growth and ease in transition. Tempering, testing and trialling of the self, in accordance with nature’s divine law, is a wise practice of self mastery and when not self learnt, is multiversal taught. Hagalaz can be considered the teachings of karmic lessons and a breaking away of destructive patterns playing out in our lives. It is the inspirational driving force of drastic change, embraced fearfully or fearlessly. Change will come regardless of mind. It is the resistance we hold that determines how much we suffer. The equanimous mind understands the loss is a gain, the unknown is just another thing to learn and the fear we hold is excitement, just expressed without love. Allow of the lesson of Hagalaz with humility. Break the habit of over planning, needing to know and assumptions. Let go the fear of the unknown and the control of the now. Why so Sirius? The universe will remind you you are a child yet. Just don’t go about reacting like one.
