Runes are wonderful ancient symbols that originated within Germanic tribes as a type of alphabet centuries ago. They were often used as a powerful tool for divination and protection from evil. There are several versions of the Runic alphabet each with different names, shapes and meanings. The most popular Runes are the “Elder Futhark” which are what many psychics use today as a method of divination. Each rune is inscribed with a magical symbol on a small smooth stone or a piece of wood. Psychics can read the runes to gain insight and provide guidance, much like tarot cards. Runes are kept in a bag and then pulled out one by one and laid out in a spread. They are then read and interpreted by a psychic. Some psychic readers prefer to throw the runes onto a surface and read whichever of the runes land facing up.
