    Did You Make or Buy Your Runes?

    Easy question, easy answer - or not?
    Did you make your Runes by yourself or did you buy them?
    And why did you chose one or the other way?
    Do you actually own Runes?

    I have a set that my mother bought for me, but I no longer use it, as it is way too impersonal for me.

    When I am home, I will indeed go out with a saw, "ask" the tree if it is right to take a branch of it, and make sort of "rune disks" myself, then stain them with my blood. Of course not everybody stains them - yet I feel that they it is a much more personal connection if you do so. And, it is also in the lore, so blood-staining is not fluffy.

    So, for the minute I sadly have to vote for "bought them", but once I have made my proper set, I will come back and get my vote changed.

    An ex-girlfriend of mine gave them to me. And she taught me how to cast them.


    P.S. You should add an option "other". I chose "bought them", as they came from my environment, not from my own hands.

    I don't own Runes. Do I miss something?

    Well, yes and no.

    Heathenry is not solely a path of Runes. Every Heathen should have a knowledge of what they are and know what each one means - but Runelore remains only one little path of our folkway, and you are not a "lesser" Heathen if you do not use Runes.

    They are however a useful tool. Although I have been known to envisage them in my mind, and therefore at times there is no actual need to use runes in a physical sense.
    Well...

    I don't have any, but if I decided to do so, I would definetely make them. I believe their power is not the same if they are bought as opposed to if they are hand-made by their owner.

    " -I took up the runes "

    Made them of course.
    Shall things be decent done, one often have to do it oneself.
    However, the original way of attaining runes is not mentioned here, hehe.

    Odin found the runes.

    Made them...bled them on Mother Night. Pull one every morning to meditate on throughout the day. I also have Thurizas and Tiwaz tattooed on my shoulders, Raidho and Othala on my elbows. I heve Elhaz and Othala in a tattoo with my childrens' names in it. I consult my runes on a regular basis and I most closely relate to Raidho; in it's aspect of the rune of right action and as representing the journey of the initiate on the path of ascension.
