When I was 18 I bought a set of runes from a local metaphysical bookstore. They came with a book called “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum. This was my introduction to what would eventually become my divinatory medium of choice.
Along the way I tried other systems – tarot, animal totem cards, etc. – but didn’t connect with them like I did with the Runes. Though beautiful and fascinating to behold, I found the tarot too complicated and slightly intimidating. The animal totem cards were less intimidating, but still didn’t quite “click” with me. It was in the simple beauty of the Runes I found my preferred vehicle for personal growth, and have used them daily or near-daily for the last 15 years.
In addition to using the Runes for my own growth, I enjoy helping others grow by providing psychic readings. I first began giving readings about 10 years ago in the small metaphysical book store I owned at the time.
It is by drawing on this experience and countless hours of meditation that I offer my interpretations of the Elder Futhark Runes. These interpretations may at times be at odds with popular wisdom. For those concerned by this, I invite you to consider that like everything else in our reality, few things can pigeon-holed as “one or the other.” I also invite every visitor to use her/his own discernment when reading what I’ve put forth, and to keep those words that resound with truth and discard the rest.
