To Blunt Swords or Otherwise Calm Confrontations in Your Favor Runes are known for having the power to dull the blades of enemy weapons. I’ve never been in a sword fight, so I haven’t had the opportunity to test this. However, blunting swords can also be a metaphor for tipping the odds of the outcome of a confrontation in your favor while not directly influencing the will of another person. For many modern practitioners who use runes to create spiritual change, it feels ethically wrong to directly change the mind or emotions of another person. Some believe that this forced removal of control can easily backfire or otherwise cause the person who is doing the coercion to experience similar negative effects in his or her own life as a reflection of what has been projected into the universe. A magical law of attraction states that spiritual energy attracts more of its same character as you work with it, so using controlling energy will draw more controlling people and situational factors into your own life. Undertake such spiritual work with caution and deliberate over it in prayer.
