Rune Helper: Tiwaz

Runes are a system for self-help and guidance, used for many
centuries by the ancient people of Scandinavia, Germany, and the
British Isles.

TIWAZ embodies the strength of the “inner warrior” to carry us through hardship and opposition. Being a warrior in this fuller sense relates to discipline, courage, tenacity, and principled action. Live your own truth rather than submitting to domination from outside. Draw upon your strength for the benefit of others, defending your friends, family, and community and standing up for those who are too weak to protect themselves. On a planetary level, it is also imperative that we begin turning our warrior energy in defense of our fragile world rather than ceaselessly warring with nature and one another.
