Gebo can be considered the Odinnic triad of gifts - self-awareness, breath and shape. The purpose of a gift in ancient times was to bind two people together in a commitment of some sort. A gift is a recognition of a promise, a couple committing to each other or a retainer prepared to serve his lord on battle.
Gebo is about commitment between people, loyalty, trust, about doing the right thing, and being able to trust on others to be true and loyal back.
