Divination Techniques - Runes

Runes are a divination tool that can be traced back to ancient Viking times. Runes are comprised of 24 tiles or stones that are inscribed with a letter of the Furthark runic alphabet. Each “letter” marked on the rune has a distinct meaning and a phonetic sound which is linked to Norse mythology.

The Vikings believed that the runes were magical and they were used in writing, telling fortunes, communication and casting spells. The supernatural powers of the rune stones were believed without question. Only a master could fully interpret the meanings of the runes and the divination was often left to rune masters who were usually women.

There are several methods for working with the runes. For a simple rune reading, draw three stones and lay them in a row. As rune casting works with the subconscious mind, it is important to focus on a specific question before pulling the stones. Take time to focus on the question and don’t let your mind wander to another topic.

The first stone drawn represents the past, the second the present and the third is the future path. You may want to try using the runes as a way to connect with spirit and to develop your psychic abilities and intuition. There are many casting methods to try and finding one that works for you is part of your journey of discovery.

Self love is more than pampering yourself with bubble baths and reading inspirational quotes; it is the ability to care for yourself the way you care about the people you love. Directing the energy of sincere self love inward helps us to grow physically, psychologically and spiritually. Having compassion for yourself is the first step in a journey towards becoming authentic.

Here are some simple ideas that can help you become kinder and more compassionate with yourself.

Be mindful of yourself by being aware of what you think, feel and want.

Stay focused on what you need...this can help you to become aware of automatic behavior patterns that may not be in your best interest.

Set boundaries and protect yourself from people that are not supportive of you. It’s important to surround yourself with people who want to see you succeed.

Live with intention and purpose. Even if you are unclear about what your purpose is, trust that the decisions you make will support your intentions.

Stop being hard on yourself...everyone makes mistakes and learning to forgive yourself for past behaviour or decisions is a step in the right direction. If you learn and grow from your experiences, you will reap the benefits of the lessons learned.

Receiving Divine Guidance

IMG_4683.jpg

Tune Into Your Intuition

Intuition is an ability we all have, as is our ability to communicate with the Divine. If you are willing to tune in, spirit is always available to help. A simple technique for tuning in is to set an intention and begin by clearing your space by smudging, lighting candles or burning incense. Find your space of inner silence and ask yourself a question...listen for the answer...the first answer you receive will likely be the most accurate. Try it for yourself by asking the question “What does my soul need?” and be open to receiving the guidance that comes.

The Journey Is Yours

Remember that Divine guidance is meant to provide hope and inspiration and feels good when you attune to it. You know what is best for you and be aware that negativity does not exist within this realm. Watch for signs and pay attention...spirit surrounds us at all times and is there for guidance whenever we ask. If you wish, you can incorporate tools which will assist you in developing the connection. Accessing Divine guidance is a personal and sacred practice that is unique to each individual.
