The practices corresponding to the Rune TYR or TIR consist of placing the arms high above the head, then descending them to the sides while the hands are cupped like seashells. When lowering the straight arms pronounce the mantra “TIIIIIIIRRRRRRRR” (The sound of the letters ‘I’ and ‘R’ should be prolonged in order to awake the consciousness.)

The letter ‘T’ or TAU strikes the consciousness in order to awaken it. The letter ‘I’ works intensely within the blood which is the vehicle of the essence. The ‘R’, while intensifying the circulation of the blood in the veins and in the sanguineous vessels, is operating marvels with the igneous flames by intensifying and stimulating the awakening.

NOTE: The Gnostic tradition indicates that when the arms are up and they start to descend, while pronounces the mantra TIR, they are lowered until forming an angle as shown in our drawing of the RUNE (45º angle to the floor).

It is recommended to practice this Rune in combination with Rune BAR (first one and then the other, alternating in that way).
