Brief story of how I came across the runes: Let me start by saying I am of Puerto Rican descent. My religion is Santeria (lukumi/Yoruba pantheon, you should look it up). Anyway, I never heard of the runes in my life until I started to have dreams. Some huge big dude came to me and was carving something. At first I couldn't tell what it was. Now mind you these dreams started happening everyday. As time went on the symbols he was carving kept getting more and more clear. I myself started writing these symbols down. About 3 weeks in I went to my wife's job and bumped into a friend of her's who happens to practice Wicca. I asked her about these symbols and she said they were runes. She said the elder Futhark to be precise. I went online and started looking them up. Surely enough I found the symbols I've dreaming with. Now about a months later my dreams have not stopped. Unfortunately my wife's friend has moved to another state so I have no one else I can reach out to. I'm learning more about Norse mythology and becoming fascinated by it. I would love to learn more about the Norse Gods, the runes, it's meanings, magic, protection, consecration, binding and so on. I made my own set out of pine tree. I'm not saying I'm turning my back on my religion just expanding. Anyone care to help?
