So I have searched and searched but I am finding nothing on rune stones on the site. Does anyone use runes for divination? I have been told I am quite good at it.I enjoy the spirit of the thing. Its a wonderful way for me to focus my workings, though I am still not very good at workings. 

 

I would love to do readings for anybody who may want one. Doing readings often keeps my energy in tune with the stones. Its good for me and for them. PM me any time.

 

If you do use stones what are your stones made out of? What runes do you feel most connected with? What casting method do you use?

I just PM'd you some links to some threads on the topic  :).  I own a couple sets of runes, read a little about them years ago, but never got back to them.  However, it is something I have been wanting to get back into.

Hey!

 

I've been using runes for a few years now, i bought my first set which were made of amethyst, but I read that traditionally they should be made from a fruit tree.. so i ended up making my own from hawthorn wood. I found they really do work much better than the ones I bought, maybe because my own energy was put into them and also the trees energy. 

 

What are yours made from? 

 

I generally use the 3 rune method (past present future) for ease, but on special occasions a 9 rune spread is interesting. 

 

:)

Mine are made of fluorite. I dont not think I would like wooden ones. I need the weight. I was drawn to mine right away. Some day I wish tonown a set I made from the elements associated to each rune.

I use the 9 world casting method most. The nightI got my runes I dreampt about them it was great.

I've made a set of witch's runes from stones and I'm currently making a set of Pictish runes from Goat Willow wood. I'm looking forward to using these and getting to know them. I cut and burnt the symbols myself and I think this will help me connect with them since my blood (literally at a few points!) and sweat went into them, as well as meditating on the meaning of each when I applied the symbol.

I use runes. I have a water buffalo horn set, and I have a set made of bones (deer knuckles) that a friend made. I have a RW tarot deck. But it doesnt get as much use. Also use runes in my craft.

I need to learn more about the Runes, I bought an oracle deck that featured the Runes, I figured the cards would help me learn. It really did not work that way, I found another Oracle Deck that works much better.
That one I did actually make myself, even though it is a representation of a commercial deck. There are some photos of it somewhere on this site.
Making the Runes for yourself, out of wood, would indeed imbue them with a special link to yourself. I have heard that adding a drop of your Blood to the varnish, links and binds the Runes to you.
Pruneing time will be coming up in the Spring, that is when a suitable branch could be found and cut into rounds. I have a Pear tree that has nice straight branches that would work great for that purpose. I will try to remember in the spring.

I was checking out Pinterest and I saw that someone had made an Oracle set out of little things from the junk drawer, You put them in a bag mix them up and then take out a few items.
You can intuit the answers to you questions from what you pick. A sink plug, is your life going down the drain? A nail, time to build or rebuild. etc. It was an interesting concept.
I have also seen people making Junk drawer art, they are quite inventive.

Holdasown, Do you use a book to read the Runes or do you know them by heart?

I know most of the rune names but not all by heart yet.

I have done meditations while holding runes and when I did Fehu I saw the Disney dwarves singing it instead of Hi Ho. LOL. Now I associate it with them when ever I see it.
