You made mention of a matter on my profile you wish to disclose with me privately. I find this request a little odd. Please clarify subject matter, so I can evaluate whether this is something I would like to take offline.
First let me say that I'm grateful to finally find an active forum! I'm a relative newbie at this, and have been reading through the usual sources from Thorsson, Oswald, Aswynn, etc...and what I'm really dying to find is the ancient rituals used to create the runes themselves. I can burn straight lines into tree branches all day long, but I'd like to actually be able to properly empower my runes. Getting my hands on some of those old practices would go a long way in giving me some…Continue

The rune that comes to raise awareness and consciousness this week is called Thorn and it actually looks like a…Continue
This week’s rune is called Eh and came out in inverted position. It invites to start a journey towards our essence step by step. Shall we start?
The concept of Consciousness that most strongly resonates with me now is “that which accepts all and judges nothing.” If each one of us is an embodied hologram of that Consciousness, this rune invites us to explore how to experience that concept in human form.
Because this is a rune of earth, it whispers that the path shall be taken…Continue

I just relocated to WA (US) and am looking for independent kindreds and Heathens in the Seattle/Everett area. I've been happily solitary for several years, and yet now I feel a strong urge to make connections with others in a more direct way.
I'd be happy to get to know folks in the area, even just to know who's around here!
All the best,
Welcome to all new members, it is good to see more and more kindred here. Please do not forget to set a profile photo to give color to the members page, but most of all we are real people interacting with each other and it does feel little more personal when we can put a face to the discussions on the forum and blog. Looking forwards to get to know you all. Blessings ~Sigha

I have seen a sigil helm of empowerment a few times now on the internet and am curious what properties it holds. Can anyone help me?
this 3 files jpeg i get them from a page that i can´t remember well where, but it seems to be my fully name written in runes. I´ll try to combine them in first instance in 3 binded runes, and possibly end up binding all the runes in 1. I like to hear the story that my name has to tell me in runes. when i do that, i show it to you to see your opinion about it…Continue
SO I had been meaning to make a Talisman to keep my home safe and calm. I chose three runes to use from amongst: Othala, Algiz, Isa, Berkana, Hagalaz, Nauthiz, Eiwaz.
Using Othala and Algiz I noticed that Inguz and Nauthiz appeared. After applying Isa I began to notice more and more runes appearing as I continued developing the BindRune until I finally was led to this :…

Anyways Michele says oh im sure there meant for you. So i started to study them…Continue
A funny thing happened when I was thinking about Bindrunes (its been on my mind lately) I was thinking about when I was younger and I had horrrrible self confidence issues, particularly with the lady folk. I was, literally, so oblivious that I didnt even realize when someone was throwing themselves at me.
Now, I know "love spells" are at best a thoroughly grey area and by that I mean usually a bunch of bad karma, however, I was wondering about a Bindrune to help a man develop…
So recently I have wanted to build up a base foundation of runic knowledge. The idea came to me that, every day I would pick a rune at random, and focus on it when I could throughout the day.
This morning I drew Mannaz. I'm exploring certain techniques with the runes at the moment. In this case, having mediated for a short while and energizing myself, I blew onto the rune itself. I do this, as the breath is life.
In my mind, I visualized myself sat in a room which had a…Continue
I did a reading yesterday about my journey forward, and just wanted to share it.
Done in the Valknutr Spread described in Edred Thorsson's book Runecaster's Handbook: The Well of Wyrd. This is a Norns spread, expanded upon.
1.1 - Ehwaz - the 'root' of the 'root of the…Continue
When I was younger by decades to days, I remember doodling in school. I'm sure everyone has done the same, you're bored as crap and the teacher just drones on and on and on and you just KNOW that the classroom clock is now running backwards.
There were always a few shapes that would end up repeated on my paper as I doodled without really paying attention, often Dagaz would appear Tiewaz would make a guest appearance, in fact, pretty much all the Elder Futhark have appeared in my…

I have been reading other posts here and I am wondering if it is wrong of me not to of used wood or stone to create my personal staves? I have used plaster and then painted mine. Does this matter?
I notice that some have used their own blood and semen to paint their staves, is this necessary?
I was wondering what the runes, particularly, through study and meditation, might have to offer a person in a really dysfunctional social situation? You see, I had been involved with a forum for about two years and due to discrepancies with the admin/moderation, I left. Anyway, there were some issues with getting myself separated from there. I finally reached the point where admin has no longer been bothering me. As of the past few days though, a member contacted me, acting like a friend,…Continue
A little primer here. Tyriel speaks of chakras as "hvel," and I really haven't found anything outside of this website that talks about this. As I'm sure that all of you know, chakras in the body are energy centers/vortexes that govern the body. While there are more than a hundred of them all about the body, there are 7 main chakras generally accepted by the spiritual community (Although this number varies from discipline to discipline). These 7 "hvel" or chakras lie along the spine, and are…Continue
