Runes as Doorways

I've been using runes recently, not for divination but as doorways for occult/mystic experiences. A year ago or so I decided that once I learnt about a rune and used it in a ritual/magic sense I would carve it into my staff and make a note of my experiences, so that hopefully the meaning of the rune would stick with me. As things turned out, this idea got put on a back burner as other things in my life had to take priority. So I am planning on starting again and will record it here. So far I have been working with the following runes, but I am going to go back over them one by one and record what I have already experienced with them, and whats happened this time round.

 

PERP/PERTHO: Family lines, Ancestory 'Game'

RAIDO: Journeys 'Ride'

EHWAZ: 'Horse'

SOWILO: 'Sun', the thawing rays of spring

LAGU: 'Lake/Sea' Guardian of the Gate

Hi Owlblink,

 

I'm just curious, why do you associate perthro with family lines? I only ask because typically, Othala (or Ethel) is the rune associated with family, inheritance, things of that nature.

 

I have a love of the runes myself, and often find slightly different interpretations of them. Well, some of them.

I did some mediatation a couple of years ago with a Asatru Heathen where he guided us through Runic doorways to the safer of the Heathen Realms...

Interesting blog! I've recently started to get to know the runes but I'm well at the beginning...

 

Love to read more of your experience.

Hi Grym, I believe Pertho/Peorp has some connections with birth and family lines, and also the joining together of friends of family, 'in the beer hall, blithe together' (from the Anglo Saxon rune poem) - this poem also references bold men or warriors which in my mind also speaks of connections between people working as one 'family', in terms of troops of warriors, working towards one cause. I was told that the meaning of the word Peorp is linked to Wyrd, actions which start from birth creating the future; the 'red thread' or witchline which is passed through family. I haven't actually done much with this rune yet in terms of dream work, ritual work - so this all could come out in the wash !!! x
