Pick a Rune & Discover Its Message For You
The RUNES are an ancient alphabet system which is believed to be created and used by the Celts, the Vikings, and the Germans back in the beginning of the first century. The word RUNE could be translated to “whisper” or “holy secret”. The ancient people believed that each rune has a sacred power, hidden energetic message and offers intuitive guidance. There are 24 runes in total and each rune holds strong energy and symbolism. In this article, you have all runes and their meanings and symbolism.
The runes, back at the time, were carved onto wood, stones, bones etc. The ancient people, especially the Vikings, cared a lot about their own runes and some even tattooed them on their bodies. Every family kept their runes in a sacred cloth pouch.
Each individual selected his own runes in the same way as a tarot card. The choice of Runes was a sacred ceremony in which, as they believed, every individual could see their destiny.
However, the ritual was similar to tarot. Just like many cards spread, there are also many different runes spreads as well, which can be used to receive spiritual messages and guidance.
