A History of Runes

Rune Stone of Rok-9th CenturyRunes are an ancient Oracle, older than the New Testament.   Runes were last in widespread use in Iceland during the late Middle Ages.   Little remains of their origins except for the standing Rune stones found in the British Isles, Germany, and throughout Scandinavia, and their saga and lore.   Scholars do not agree upon where and when runic writing first made its appearance in western Europe. 

It is believed that Odin gave mankind the gift of runes.   Odin is the principal divinity in the pantheon of Norse gods.  It was his passion, his transforming sacrifice of the self that brought the runes to humankind.   According to legend, Odin hung for nine nights on Yggdrasil, the Tree of the World, wounded by his own blade, tormented by hunger, thirst and pain, unaided and alone until, before he fell, he spied the runes and with a last tremendous effort seized them. 

Rune Stones

Runes can be a teacher and a source of guidance.  Consider them as a sacred game, an instrument for serious or high play.  For the value of play is that it frees us from the effort of learning, frees us to learn as children learn.   Consulting the runes can put you in touch with your own inner guidance, with that part of your that knows everything you need to know for the present.

Experiencing a true present is something most find extremely difficult.  A good part of life is wasted dwelling on past regrets and fantasies of the future.  Replacing brain chatter with stillness helps keep one in the present, in the now.  These runes are tools to aid that process.
