This book gives an overview of one theory of reality and how we can use thought to transform our lives. Other chapters are devoted to helping one get to know the meanings of the runes to oneself, of learning how to see these runes in all things and of how to see them in yourself and lastly, various ways to utilize this new-found knowledge and use runic energies as a focus for transformation.
I would recommend this book over many others for its ease of use and the presentation of materials. The author encourages personal development and the greater growth of one's own intuition as opposed to complete blind-faith in stock meanings. It is stressed over and over again that it is important for the seeker to find the meanings themselves.
Most other books I have read about runes focus on their use for divination, and while this is a useful and worthwhile use of the runic staves, this book goes far beyond their divinatory meanings.
This book cultivates an understanding of the historical, linguistic, mythological and spiritual understanding of the runic alphabet. Kaedrich Olsen gives readers a thorough background on the historical significance of runes and how they were actually used by the Norse based on historical evidence such as the rune poems.
The runes’ connection with Norse spirituality is covered, as well as traditional uses of runic magic and rune song. The author illustrates the energy of each rune, making each archetype understandable and identifiable.
Next, readers are given meditations, and exercises that allow the energies of the runes to be applied for personal transformation and spiritual understanding. Practices such as creating your own set of runes for divination and magic, Galdr the ancient practice of singing the runes for magical workings, using combinations of runic staves to create unique shifts in energy and connecting to the Norse pantheon through the energy of the runes are covered, leaving readers with a magical runic toolbelt, that allows them to connect to the runes in a variety of personal ways.Read more ›
