The Runes Box Tools to Connect You to the Magic of the Universe

AUTHOR: Lona Eversden

Discover the power of ancient Nordic runes with this beautifully presented book and deck. According to Norse mythology, Odin, the chief of the gods, hung himself in self-sacrifice from the world tree Yggdrasil for nine days and nights in order to receive cosmic wisdom. This was granted to him in the form of the runes. The runes make up an alphabet that, with local variations, was used across most of northern Europe from pre-Christian times until the thirteenth century. The word rune is derived from runa, an ancient Germanic word meaning whisper or mystery. The Runes Box explains the meanings of the runes and the Norse mythology that underpins their basic concepts. Enclosed in a handy hardcover case so that the wisdom of the runes can be carried with you at all times, you'll find:

• A 96-page booklet that explains the history of runes and how to use them
• 36 carry-size cards with information on the 24 runes and their meanings, plus some essential runic blessings and wishes

The straight, angular lines of the runes are ideal for carving into bone, wood, or stone, or forming with twigs. Different methods for making runestones are described with instructions on how to use them for divinatory and magical purposes, from making talismans to petitioning the Norse gods. Approach the runes with a benevolent instinct, an open heart, and an honest spirit, and truths will be revealed to you.
