Runes were ancient alphabets that were believed to be created and introduced to humankind by the Germans, Scandinavians, and Celtics way back in 98AD. The word “rune” means “holy secret” or “whisper”, and every alphabet is believed to harbor a secret message that can provide intuitive guidance. When you take part in a rune reading, and the rune you are drawn to can say a lot about you, and also offer you some instinctive advice.
There are 24 runes, and each has its own meaning and deep symbolism that is connected to the working of nature, the eight directions, and lastly stars and constellations. According to tradition, runes are carved out of bones, stones, and wood and are kept in cloth pouches which are considered to be sacred.
A rune reading is conducted in the same way, a tarot card reading is conducted; you need to select a set of runes just like you select a set of tarot cards. Another way of getting a rune reading is by thinking about a question in your mind to which you have been looking for an answer for a very long time or something you feel you need some direction and guidance on. Focus on the question hard, and then select a rune that speaks to you the most.
