Pagan Portals Runes – an excerpt

Oct 1st, 2018 | By | Category: Book News, Books

The Runes are a set of 24 symbols which are steeped in history, myths and legends. pagan Portals Runes, by Kylie Holmes offers practical and accessible information for anyone to understand this ancient form of divination. Here’s an excerpt from the book.

“If you’ve just begun your spiritual journey, you can boost the process whilst casting one Rune a day. First thing in the morning, leave the chosen Rune out, open up your blank journal and jot down whatever inspirational words come to you during the day. That’s how I learned the Runes, and I was amazed almost daily by the insights these simple tiles provide. By then, I had been using Astrology and Tarot for years, and found it hard to believe that such a ‘simple’ tool could be so profound.

I now always use the Tarot, Angel cards, various different Divination cards and the Rune Stones on my spiritual journey, especially when I ask myself, ‘What are the lessons I need to learn
from certain situations?’

For me, every spiritual journey begins with the awakening, the desire to know what lies beyond material possessions. Life for me is like a journey within a journey, like chapters of a book;
and at the end of each chapter, the book still remains to be completed. Each new chapter marks a beginning and an end: the end of one pattern, but also the beginning of a new higher understanding.

With every positive lesson, however, as we know well, comes some form of negativity. So as you graduate from one level to another, you will often find yourself in a fury of emotions, good and bad. We have to remember that these are the lessons and until we learn to take control and break out of recurring patterns, the pattern will continue to occur, each time with greater intensity, until we consciously break out of it.

I would like to point out that the book I have written does not teach you the reverse meanings of each Rune. From the beginning, I made it a personal rule to myself never to do reversals, as I felt that learning the meanings of twenty-four Runes on their own was hard enough, without learning another twenty-four meanings. The reason for this is because I feel that not all readers do reversals. And if you’re a beginner, it’s probably a good idea to avoid them until you’re pretty confident in your readings. Reversals take time and practice. I also know from experience that when I am casting the Runes for clients they often get nervous when they see them reversed. In old-fashioned books on Runes, a reversed Rune meant doom and gloom and so, not surprisingly, nothing can turn a casting into a downer like a spread with a lot of reversed Runes. I have not included reversed Rune meanings in the meanings of the Runes because I personally do not use them. If you’d like more information on the reversed meanings of the Runes, then you may have to find a book that contains that information.”
