Runes are an alphabetic script used by the people of Northern Europe from
the first century.  It has also be used as a system of symbols used for
magic and divination.  Runes are an alphabetic script used by the ancient
Germanic and Norse peoples. This alphabet is engraved into stones making them
sacred. My primary usage of runes is for spiritual healing.

The
primary characteristic that deciphers a runic alphabet from other alphabets is
that each letter of the rune has a meaning.  For example, the names the
first three runes, "fehu", "uruz", and "urisaz" are actual words in the
Germanic language, meaning "cattle", "aurochs", and "giant", respectively. 
Runes have magical and religious significance as well. 

Runes have been rediscovered as a symbolic system and have become popular as a
means of divination.  They provide a key to understanding the lives
beliefs of the ancient people who created them. 

A long time
ago there was a great need in my life for spiritual healing. One day, I was in
a spiritual bookstore and I came across a lovely set of runes in a green velvet
bag.   Very soon I realized that I was saving my own life! The runes have an
amazingly strong ability to heal. I had an almost instant connection with the
stones.  Since then I found that through this connection I am able to help
not only myself and others mind and spirit.

Through the daily use of
tuning in and drawing a stone and the more thorough stone readings, I can draw
the focus of healing and growth in and direct the flow of energy to the areas
of life they are most needed. The result in my life has been a sense of calm
and solace despite all of life's constant and unique challenges.

When
we listen to the guidance of the ancient runes, we are directed to the areas of
our life which need the most work and deserve the most healing. When we work
towards the healing of our souls, we experience a freedom in our hearts and
rather than daunting.  Life feels rich and full.

Often in life it
is what hurts us that make us whole. Sad is the soul that experiences only
happiness, for there is no growth. By the healing runes, the divine enters our
lives. The very part of us that is broken calls out through prayer for a
release of knowledge that will lead to an understanding that will repair
hearts. When we listen to our hearts, we hear the divine.

Through
my work with runes, I have heard my own heart and have begun the life long
process of healing.  Psychic answers come when the heart is open. Assisted
with prophetic vision, hearing the rune messages are the messages to the heart.
