Introducing Kensticks, a completely new form of divination
This book sets out to give an insight into the spirit that drives the runes and to allow you to access this. Included is a chapter on an entirely new, and highly effective, runic divination method called Kensticks.
To study the runes is to discover an alternative view of the universe.
The thing that sets runes apart from other divinatory methods is the dual function of language and magic. Each is a letter and a word with a wealth of hidden meaning. Besides this it has numerical associations that are little understood even by some people who use runes today, there are also correspondences with deity names and even times that we need to be aware of.
Spirit of the Runes is designed to be a starting point, to give a taste of the true character of the runes of the Elder Futhark, to help the reader understand the spirit and energy that runs through each rune and through the entire Elder Futhark.
||Runes and The Northern Tradition
It is impossible to study the runes without learning about the beliefs and deities of the peoples of ancient northern Europe and you will find snippets from legends and sagas winding their way through this book. These deities are not the perfect, unblemished characters of other religions; they have faults, weaknesses and strengths. Their tales will strike chords here and there with you and the better you understand them, the better you will understand the runes of the Elder Futhark.
