Runes General Overview
Runes are an alphabetic script used by the people of Northern Europe from the first century. It has also be used as a system of symbols used for magic and divination. Runes are an alphabetic script used by the ancient Germanic and Norse peoples. This alphabet is engraved into stones making them sacred. My primary usage of runes is for spiritual healing.
The primary characteristic that deciphers a runic alphabet from other alphabets is that each letter of the rune has a meaning. For example, the names the first three runes, “fehu”, “uruz”, and “urisaz” are actual words in the Germanic language, meaning “cattle”, “aurochs”, and “giant”, respectively. Runes have magical and religious significance as well.
Runes have been rediscovered as a symbolic system and have become popular as a means of divination. They provide a key to understanding the lives beliefs of the ancient people who created them.
A long time ago there was a great need in my life for spiritual healing. One day, I was in a spiritual bookstore and I came across a lovely set of runes in a green velvet bag. Very soon I realized that I was saving my own life! The runes have an amazingly strong ability to heal. I had an almost instant connection with the stones. Since then I found that through this connection I am able to help not only myself and others mind and spirit.
Through the daily use of tuning in and drawing a stone and the more thorough stone readings, I can draw the focus of healing and growth in and direct the flow of energy to the areas of life they are most needed. The result in my life has been a sense of calm and solace despite all of life’s constant and unique challenges.
When we listen to the guidance of the ancient runes, we are directed to the areas of our life which need the most work and deserve the most healing. When we work towards the healing of our souls, we experience a freedom in our hearts and rather than daunting. Life feels rich and full.
Often in life it is what hurts us that make us whole. Sad is the soul that experiences only happiness, for there is no growth. By the healing runes, the divine enters our lives. The very part of us that is broken calls out through prayer for a release of knowledge that will lead to an understanding that will repair hearts. When we listen to our hearts, we hear the divine.
Through my work with runes, I have heard my own heart and have begun the life long process of healing. Answers come when the heart is open. Assisted with prophetic vision, hearing the rune messages are the messages to the heart.
