Runes


#1

Hey I wanted to know if any one of you can help me to get in contact with an ancient viking witch or shaman spirit to learn the meanings of the runes trough them.

You could open the runes and experience them yourself. But if you want someone to contact you could look up Freya Aswynn, she could help you.

Freya Aswynn can be contacted via Facebook and her website:

The best way to get to know the runes is to eat them. Freya Aswynn baked a cake or muffin or biscuit which was iced with the Rune. 24days, one for each rune. Obviously you can look at popular rune books including Edred Thorsson. These will give you the outer layer of the runes. Once you have a foundation, then you can open the Runes and learn directly from them. Then you can use Galdor (Runes) or Seidr (Sorcery) to contact a Volva or Vitki in Hel.

An ancient Viking witch is more likely to be a powerful sorceress and shaman, not necessarily a mistress of the Runes. A Shaman Spirit may not necessarily know the Runes, again more chance of being a sorcerer.

Know how to cut them,
know how to read them,
Know how to stain them,
know how to prove them,
Know how to evoke them,
know how to score them,
Know how to send them,
know how to send them.

Better not to ask than to over-pledge
As a gift that demands a gift.
Better not to send
Than to slay too many.

The Runes require respect, because they are very powerful and have their own spirits and demons.

If I may ask, how long have you been working with runes? You seem to know a lot. I just started and I am loving it.

I have been working with runes on and off for years. They were not my primary focus, as I am a practitioner of Seidr. I was a teenager when I came across books by Michael Howard, Nigel Pennick (a local author), D Jason Cooper and Brian Bates. I had been working magick in my own fashion beforehand and became fascinated by the runes. I met Freya Aswynn when I was 19 and she whacked me on my back and referred to me as her black magician. She is a remarkable woman, I am glad to refer to as kin. She now lives in Spain and we haven’t seen one another in ages. I did provide her with some essential oil correspondences which are in “Principles of the Runes”.

Meeting Freya Aswynn when I was 19 was like meeting Elvis for me. I tried to work with Odin as suggested by her and 'Leaves of Yggdrasil", but it was not meant to be because I am the Lady’s Man, so worked with the goddess Freyja and that was when my awakening began.

I adore the runes, they are a fabulous and very powerful gift. As far as my runic experience goes, I prefer to say that I am still growing with them. What I am finding is that I am being drawn back to them and so my studies continue.
