Rune Against All Sorts of Illnesses
For millennia, the names of God have been considered so holy and powerful that they have been used in runes, magical spells, and etched on amulets by Christians and pagans alike. This rune, found in "The Veritable Key of Solomon," employs four such names. Tetragrammaton is one of the seven names of God that is so holy it cannot be erased once written and was spoken aloud only by rabbis on specific days, and then only in a whisper. Agla is an abbreviation used by rabbis, created by the first letters of the phrase “Aieth Gadol Leolam Adonai,” which means “Adonai (the Lord) will be great to eternity.” Emmanuel means “God with us,” and is a common Hebrew name.
While I believe we need science, not God, to protect us from COVID, this is a powerful symbol of our need for protection against illness in the midst of a global pandemic.
