My Rune Immersion That's Making Me Insane

So I was watching the mastering divination course in it, Ea states " I suggest you get to know one rune per day ".

Now me being me, I thought hmmm, let’s do what the all father did, let’s learn the runes immediately so I dedicated a 24 hour rune immersion.

I’m now on 20 hours I have learnt 16 runes already in the first day, I will admit I’m going a little nuts since I’m seeing things and hearing voices and feeling over whelmed by the energy.

As I have done this my left eye has started swelling up, this was a little synchronicity of odins sacrifice for the knowledge.

I have four hours left i’ll update you on any progress.


Odin didn’t learn them all instantaneously, he hung himself with his spear for at least a week.


No I don’t mean like instantaneous, I mean that he didn’t work one at a time but he hung there and after his sacrifice he knew the runes.


The period was he hung was 9 days if i remember right but his eye was a different sacrifice.
That was his sacrifice for a drink from mimir’s well to turn all his knowledge into wisdom. Least that is what the versions of the myths ive read so far tell.


Odin’s Discovery of the Runes:

At the center of the Norse cosmos stands the great tree Yggdrasil. Yggdrasil’s upper branches cradle Asgard, the home and fortress of the Aesir gods and goddesses, of whom Odin is the chief.

Yggdrasil grows out of the Well of Urd, a pool whose fathomless depths hold many of the most powerful forces and beings in the cosmos. Among these beings are the Norns, three sagacious maidens who exert more influence over the course of destiny than any other beings in the cosmos. One of the foremost techniques they use to shape destiny is carving runes into Yggdrasil’s trunk. The symbols then carry these intentions throughout the tree, affecting everything in the Nine Worlds.

Odin watched the Norns from his seat in Asgard and envied their powers and their wisdom. And he bent his will toward the task of coming to know the runes.

Since the runes’ native home is in the Well of Urd with the Norns, and since the runes do not reveal themselves to any but those who prove themselves worthy of such fearful insights and abilities, Odin hung himself from a branch of Yggdrasil, pierced himself with his spear, and peered downward into the shadowy waters below. He forbade any of the other gods to grant him the slightest aid, not even a sip of water. And he stared downward, and stared downward, and called to the runes.

He survived in this state, teetering on the precipice that separates the living from the dead, for no less than nine days and nights. At the end of the ninth night, he at last perceived shapes in the depths: the runes! They had accepted his sacrifice and shown themselves to him, revealing to him not only their forms, but also the secrets that lie within them. Having fixed this knowledge in his formidable memory, Odin ended his ordeal with a scream of exultation.

Having been initiated into the mysteries of the runes, Odin recounted:

Then I was fertilized and became wise;
I truly grew and thrived.
From a word to a word I was led to a word,
From a work to a work I was led to a work.

Equipped with the knowledge of how to wield the runes, he became one of the mightiest and most accomplished beings in the cosmos. He learned chants that enabled him to heal emotional and bodily wounds, to bind his enemies and render their weapons worthless, to free himself from constraints, to put out fires, to expose and banish practitioners of malevolent magic, to protect his friends in battle, to wake the dead, to win and keep a lover, and to perform many other feats like these.
