5 Easy Ways to Use Runes You Can Start Trying Today!

Posted on August 08, 2017

We talk a lot about having tools in the tool box here, and that it should be getting bigger and more full every day for you. The reason it is important to have as many tools in that tool box is because some work better for some things than others.

Grand outlooks and predictions are great with astrology, life path and destiny secrets can be discovered through numerology, and the Tarot is fabulous for giving you those, “right here right now” questions you ask yourself every day. Those aren′t the only tools you want to take advantage of.

Healing tools, such as Reiki and meditation are others we have discussed will improve your relaxation and increase your awareness. There is another tool that we have not discussed yet, and that is the divination tool of Runes!

Runes are wonderful little things, and they work similarly to the Tarot but in a different medium. Runes are stones that have had symbols placed on them which offer a meaning. Each symbol means something different, and this is how the Runes gives us answers. Like your Tarot cards have symbols that tell you something, so do Runes.

As such, Runes are used for divination, and they have been in use for centuries. You can even start to be more psychic every day by becoming one with your set of Runes.

One set of Runes contains 24 stones, or Runes, and each Rune will give you the answers to your questions. Just like the Tarot, but with stones! Is there a right and a wrong way to do it? No, actually. Here are some guidelines for you if you want to add this tool to your toolbox.

Reading runes is very easy, and because it has been around so long, also one of the most popular! Here are some very popular ways to begin using your Runes you can try today. Have fun, and do report back and let us know how it went for you!

1. One Rune Draw.

This is a great way to start practicing with your Runes and begin getting to know them a little bit better. This is as simple as it sounds. Put all of the Runes in the pouch that they came in, and toss the pouch to mix them up a bit. Now, open the pouch and put your hand in and just get a feel for what the stones feel like.

As you do, concentrate on the question you want the Runes to answer today. Keep concentrating until a Rune kind of “jumps out” at you, or in some cases, even jumps into your hand! Draw this Rune out, and use a handbook to determine its meaning, or even look up the symbol online. This is the answer to your question!

2. The Full Rune Spread.

This is a one card Rune draw as well, but instead of keeping your Runes in the pouch, spread them all out, symbol side down on a silk scarf or a table in front of you. As you are doing so, think of your question again. Then, when all of the Runes are faced down, move your hand, palm down, over all of the Runes while thinking of your question.

As you do, you will notice that one or two Runes seem to “pop” out yet again. Once again, there′s your answer! This method and the one rune draw method are the two easiest methods to begin learning and understanding your Runes, how they work, and how they answer those important questions!

3. The Grid.

This method uses all of the Runes once again, and instead of just scattering them in front of you, you will make a grid with them. First, put all of the Runes in the pouch and toss them a little bit as usual. As you do, think of the question that you want answered. Now, once that is complete, set up the Runes in an 8 x 3 grid. 3 across, and 8 down.

You should have three rows. The first is your “yes” row, the second is your “no” row, and the third is your “maybe” row. Using your dominant hand, (Right if you are right handed, and left if you are left handed.) move your palm over the three rows. Again, you will get a Rune that seems to stand out to you. Draw this Rune and you will have your answer!

What column did it come from? Yes, no, or maybe? There′s one part of your answer. The symbol on the Rune now is giving you more information about your answer. Why is it yes? Why is it no? Or what do you need to do if you pulled from the maybe column?

4. 3 Rune Draw: Past, present, and future.

Here is where your Rune reading is going to get a little more advanced, and exciting! This spread is much like a 3 card Tarot spread, but instead you will be using 3 Runes. Each of the Runes will represent a time line. One for your past, one for your present, and one for your future.

Put all of your Runes in your little pouch and gently toss them to mix them up a bit, as you have done in your previous readings. As you toss them or shake them up a bit, think about the question, how the past has played a role, and what you are wondering in this situation as far as the future is concerned! Now you are going to draw your Runes one at a time.

As you do, place them in front of you side by side, and pay attention to any special or specific feelings or thoughts that come your way. This is your intuition speaking, it′s telling you your answer! Use the symbols on the Runes, either with your handbook or through symbol guides you see online.

You will have answers on your situation for the past, present, and your future outcome! It′s really that easy!

5. 4 or 5 Rune Draw: Timeline Questions!

Have you ever had a question that started with the word “when”? Of course you have, it′s part of being human! A 4 or 5 Rune draw is great for those questions. I like to do 5 Runes for these kinds of questions, with the first 4 Runes representing 4 weeks of time, starting with the present. The final Rune will be the overall picture or overall outcome.

To do this reading, you follow the same steps you would for the 3 Rune draw. Put all of the Runes in the pouch and toss them gently while thinking of your question. Then, one by one, draw 4 or 5 Runes and again lay them side by side.

The first Rune is week 1, the second is week 2, the third is week 3, the fourth is week 4, and as I say, 5 if you choose 5 Runes is your overall outcome in this specific situation. It doesn′t get any easier than that!

Have you tried Runes before? Are you interested in getting your own set to practice those skills? Who wouldn′t be? Try these out and become one with your Runes. You will be pleasantly surprised with all of the answers and exciting revelations that come as a result, and of course, we want you to come back and report them all! Have fun!
