Hi. I have been drawn to the runes for years but never took the step to delve into them. I have finally decided to study them with the intention of using them to hopefully effect some positive changes in the lives of myself and my family with the help of the ancestors and the old Gods.
I have aquired several books on runes, and I am currently reading Futhark by Edrid Thorsson.
I have not got a rune set yet, i am trying to decide on whether Holly, Oak, or bone runes would be better? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I am wondering what kind of prospects I can hope to achieve by working with runes )once I have an understanding of what im doing lol). First and foremost I want to be able heal my wife, who has been suffering in pain for years now. She has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and suffers terribly with it. Medical science cannot do anything, so perhaps ancient knowledge/powers could. Is this possible?
What kind of successes have people had using runes?
I think you should go with what feels right, as far as meterials to use. It's different for everyone.
My primary perspective (if that's what you call it) is seidr, shamanic. I engage my spirit guides foremost in healing and insight. For me, the runes are part of that, as guides in their own right. They cut through the shit when I am too involved with a dynamic to see or hear clearly from my guides. They are blunt, and straight to the point.
I find the runes are helpful in shamanic work. Regarding helping others with them, IME they are a direct interactions tool, meaning, I can do a bit in using them to facilitate healing for someone else. They work most deeply though, when the person uses them, on self. They are a direct relationship tool. Eventually they will demand the person form their own relationship to them, to more fully benefit from what they can do.
I have FMS and other conditions. I know what it's like, and I know my family deals with a lot because I have them. I hope your wife finds relief, soon.
Hi Kelley, thanks for the reply. Maybe when I familiarise myself with the rune system I will teach the wife and get her a set so she can do it herself. Have you been able to get any relief from FMS by using runes?
I have gained coping skills for dealing with it more so then relief of symptoms, using the runes. So many lessons in them about being a soul in flesh.
I hope you and your wife are well!
