Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ralph Blum's Runes are one of the world's great spiritual resources. They always speak to us from the depths of our own hearts."--Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love

"If we suffer from any universal disease, it is shallowness of imagination. The Healing Runes offers a remedy for that malady. Not just relief from anxiety, but profound gifts that signal the presence of soul-- intimacy, pleasure, beauty, love and piety."--Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul

"Blum and Loughan have created a unique, powerful and very practical tool for self-healing. Use it when you are in conflict or in pain. Or as a daily ritual to tap your inner wisdom. These Runes place the power to accelerate your healing in your own hands."--Harold H. Bloomfield, M.D., author of The Power of 5

Customer Reviews

The book takes the same attitude toward runes and the quest of the spiritual warrior.
Matt Howe
His interpretation of the runes has little or nothing to do with the actual rune meanings or their magical uses.
Jeanne Coats
I highly recommend it to anyone seeking to get in touch with their deepest thoughts and desires.
J. Bobbitt

This is one of the most amazing books that I've ever read, without a doubt,THE HEALING RUNES ,HAS PROFOUNDLY CHANGED MY LIFE. Six months ago, I was brutally raped and felt my life would/could never be the same!!! For the first few weeks I was at the rape crisis center EVERY day. Then one day in a group discussion, I asked if anyone could suggest a book or books that might help me in beginning the long journey back. Three women said almost at the same moment---THE HEALING RUNES. I got a cold chill and when the group ended, headed for my local bookstore. From the moment I held it, I felt something from just from holding it. I know it sounds silly, but it's true. Years ago, a friend had given me THE BOOK of RUNES, which I enjoyed for a number of years . At that point in my life I simply felt that I had outgrown it. I tucked it away until the recent event I mentioned earlier, AND THEN OUT OF HEAVEN'S GIFTS, A MOST CHERISHED FRIEND WOULD BECOME A PART OF MY LIFE-----THE ! HEALING RUNES. WHAT AN AMAZING GIFT. WHEN I GOT HOME FROM THE BOOKSTORE I REACHED INTO THE VELVET BAG OF RUNE STONES, AND PICKED THE FIRST OF MANY RUNES THAT WOULD SET ME BACK ON COURSE. I picked the 14th Rune, the Rune of ACCECPTANCE. The first paragraph left me with tears streaming down my face, and the hairs on my arm standing up in profound understanding that this little green book, with it's beautiful stones and passages ,had, without knowing me, hit a bullseye!!!!! The Rune of Acceptance said in the first paragraph, exactly what I needed to hear. "This is a Rune of major blessings, blessings received and blessings bestowed. Acceptance forms the foundation for loving yourself.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
I bought this version of Blum's Rune book (written with Susan Loughan) after owning the first "Book of Runes" for a few years. I now use both in my life. I pick up "The Healing Runes" when I have a particular situation in my life which needs healing. The book takes the same attitude toward runes and the quest of the spiritual warrior. The difference lies in the interpretation of the individual runes.
For example, the rune shaped like an "X" is the rune of "trust" in the "Healing" book. In the original book it is "partnership". The healing book asks you to examine trust in your life and what you can heal around that issue.
I find these runes very useful and enjoy the "recovery" language used by Mr. Blum and Ms. Loughan. There are so many people who are putting their lives back together -- runes can only aid them in the spiritual quest. I have used runes for about 6 years now and always get so much out of them.

This is a very important book for anyone serious about healing. It is a true, yet gentle reflecting pool, of our own ability to uncover the answers necessary to heal. Reaching into the gentle velvet bag of stones, is a true metaphor for life. I would like to thank both Blum and Loughan for creating such a beautiful way to journey home.

The Healing Runes

I am enjoying this book. I had his original Rune book from years ago, and I enjoy his style and how it works. Also appreciated that they include a set of stones. I don't see that stated in the description so I hope they update that, and just so you know it's included with the book.

I can't say enough about this extraordinary book. Somewhere inside, I knew I was sick again, but I was in denial due to years of surgery. My former husband bought me, The Healing Runes, and as he handed it to me, he said, promise me this---if you pick the same stone twice, you 'll go to the doctor. I did, and I DID. I'm alive today due to my husband's gift, his love and friendship, AND THIS AMAZING BOOK, filled with so much love and clarity.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By M. Bethel on April 29, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I began using runes and this book because my spiritual teacher had them and I had found their messages consistently inspiring so bought this set for personal use. I bought a separate set of rune stones because I didn't like the texture and feel of the ones that came with the book. A stone can be drawn each morning to inspire a point of spiritual exploration for the day. I like to place the stone in my pocket on occassion so it's message is not forgotten during the day. Can't do that really with paper oracle cards. The Healing Runes book is really the jewel of this set though and it continues to inspire me to explore my spiritual growth with new levels of understanding. Highly recommend it.

I received the "Healing Runes" as a gift to help me cope with menopause. Much to my surprise I discovered that parts of my own internal life, needed as much help,as my physical life. I think there's a good chance,"The Healing Runes", will become a classic. Karen J., Los Angeles, California
