The Runes: A Grounding in Northern Magic by James Flowerdew aims to help you on your first steps to divining with The Runes and using the magic of these ancient peoples.
Actual practical success and failure is shared candidly in the hope that the reader can learn in a safe and steady manner. All combined into a neat guide to Runic practices and the inner workings of this ancient alphabet.
Full of direct references to ancient texts, as well as ripping yarns and poignant anecdotes, this book demonstrates Rune magic and the underlying principles and culture that inform it, as well as some general magical practices.
This guide helps make sure that the reader’s first steps into Runic mysticism are on solid ground, and allows everyone who wishes to work with The Runes to make intelligent choices of their own.
Today I am delighted to bring you a giveaway for an altogether different book to my usual crime. If you have ever heard the expression ‘reading the runes’ and been intrigued, this beautifully illustrated book will not only explain the basics to you, but also offers a guide to help you take your first steps in achieving a reading.
The Nordic world is full of mythological tales and old magick. Magick that required the wisest to understand the truths contained in the runes that weave together the fabric of the world. Such people were called Rune Masters and their ancient art is all but forgotten in contemporary Britain.
Runes were designed to mark the nature of existence, recording and imbuing secret powers. Now James Flowerdew brings you a practical beginners guide to the art of reading these ancient stones and shares both his successes and his failures.
