Reading Runes is one of the most popular methods of Mancy (Divination).  There are different kinds of Rune stones depending on which alphabet you choose to follow; Anglo-Saxon Futhorc, Cirth, Elder Futhark, Gothic Runes, Hungarian Runes, Turkic, Younger Futhork.  Elder Futhark is the emerging Rune alphabet in popularity; it is also known as the alphabet with the "blank".

What is the best way to use your runes? That is up to you. Here are some common methods of using runes:

Method #1: With your runes in their pouch close your eyes, concentrate on what you want an answer for (past situation, present situation or future situation) and chose a rune from the bag as your answer.

Method #2:Gently toss the runes from the bag onto a soft surface and the runes while thinking of what you want an answer for (past situation, present situation or future situation) and the rune(s) that stand out the most to you is your answer.

Method #3: Lay the runes out in grid and let your hand pass over the runes slowly while concentrating on what you want an answer for (past situation, present situation or future situation). Use your left hand if you are right-handed and your right hand if you are left-handed. You will sense the rune that holds the answer to your question.

Method #4: With your eyes closed and while in a neutral state of mind draw three runes from the bag and line them up. The first rune is an answer to a past situation, the second one is an answer to a present situation and the last is an answer to a future situation.

I am new to the paranormal world. I am young, only 14 actually. When I went to a psychic for the first time I was skeptical when he told me that I had abilities. But once I went to more psychics and they all told me the same things (ex: poltergeist abilities, being psychic, absorbing energy more than normal) I knew that everything was kind of starting to make sense. Quite a few of the people I've talked to have recommended me using Rune stones as a way to further advance myself. I have also tried and am still trying to contact my spirit guides to help me further understand myself. I really don't know what I am doing, but this page really helped me get an idea of where to start.

thurisaz for protection and uruz for strenght? im sorry, but im quite sure this is not accurate, thurisaz is not only the symbol of strenght, as it is to order, represents the jötun and the go thor, thurisaz is a symbol of strenght and order, linked to thor, and the inverted thurisaz is a simbol of wisdom, not linked to odin, but to ymir, the inverted is also a symbol for chaos

Thank you insomnia :)  Our long-time effort has been to introduce the mystic, paranormal & metaphysical arts to show people it's something that can be enriching.  I really like this site; I think it encourages creativity in the most positive way possible.  We hope this is the beginning of many good times here.

you know this is kind of funny to me to come home and find three paranormal/metaphysical 'ibles posted from one source when I was just thinking earlier about how the internet makes the dissemination of 'mystical' knowledge so much easier.

Wonder where we'll all be in a few hundred years regarding the majority view of 'religion' - I mean, look at scientology. Christianity was treated more or less the same *I think, don't quote me on this* when it was starting up. So what'll be the major religion in a few thousand years, if our species is still around?


Sorry for the tangent xD Again, well written.
