making own rune set
I was wondering if anyone has made their own rune set? Not out of the "make it yourself kits" that you can find at your favorite store, but out of stones, wood, etc.
I made my own out of citrine. I picked this stone as it doesn't need to be cleansed, not to mention I kept coming across it every place I looked when I was doing a search for stone meanings when choosing a stone to use. I used black oil based paint to paint the runes on the stones.
I didn't just pick any old one from the pile and start painting. What I did was, I put them in a bag big enough to stick my hand in and couldn't see them. Then I got out the various information that I came across on the meanings of the runes and read it outloud. Then I placed my hand in the bag and felt around while concentrating on the symbol of the rune, and the meaning. Then when one felt right in my fingers, I took it out of the bag and painted the rune on it. Did this for all of them. It took a few days for the paint to dry. After that I started carrying one I picked out of the pile each week, to get to know them.
I talked to the owner of one of the stores I frequent here in town and she said that she hasn't come across anyone in her life time who has made a rune set this way.
So just wondered if anyone else in this world has?
our life. our story. our path.
