|The Magical Stones That Reveal the Mysteries of Your Life.
Runes are alphabetical signs at least eighteen centuries old elaborated by ancient European people. These signs used to be employed in poetry, stone carvings and fortune-telling by many ancient tribes such as the Germans, the Celts and the Vikings.
Although they are an alphabet, the RUNES never became a spoken idiom. Each of its signs is a magical symbol. Therefore, the RUNES were assumed to be a ritual language, becoming the voice of an oracle.
Oracles, however, do not tell the future. Their purpose is to direct people to what is happening inside their minds in order to reach the answers from the subconscious
Rune kits are made up of many different things from Quartz stones, animal (&human) bones, wood, stones, precious gem stones to make it yourself play dough! NO kidding!. I’ll set up a link for the instructions fro that! Although there are many layouts and ways to use the runes, this one is particularly easy and straight forward. Below are the instructions for use of one way. For more information on the runes, read further down the page to learn specific information on individual rune stones.
While consulting, you may never ask questions such as: “Should I do this or that?”. Instead, try to do it in ways like: “I have problems at work, relationships, etc.” The oracle will provide you directions and comments about the matter so you will be able to find your own answers.
There are three kinds of consultants. During all of them, the RUNES must be placed exactly the way they have been picked. If the stone comes out face down, turn it face up. Always place them from the right to the left.
THE CONSULTATION OF THE RUNIC CROSS
THE CONSULTATION OF ODIN
THE CONSULTATION OF THE THREE RUNES
|THE VOICE OF THE ORACLE|
Although there are rune symbols and their respective meanings shown below, these are meant as a basic guide to the runes and not an exact framework for all runes and the art of reading them. There are multiple layouts and means by which the runes may be read, and the info below is not specific to the Gemstone Rune Kits and Sets which we currently offer. If you click on these rune symbols, you will be taken to their more traditional symbols and respective meanings for rune reading and use derived from the Elder Futhark. For a greater understanding of the runes, their usage, and rune magick, you may seek knowledge from rune books we offer ( A Practical Guide to the Runes, andNorthern Mysteries and Magick: Runes and Feminine Powers). These books are a great resource of information and knowledge as well as others found in our Book Category.
