Book of Runes : Ralph Blum :

Please try again later. Used this book at a many friend’s houses and loved it. So I decided to buy it.

Turns out, this book comes in a box with 1 set of runes and a rune satchel. I was very surprised. I was only expecting a book. Not a bad starter book, but it’s kind of like providing someone with prayers and then not having them read the Bible. It’s only part of what is a very deep, rich, and amazingly complex system. It’s in-depth with rune meanings pulled from several versions of the rune poem since the original was lost to time and the rise of Christianity the blank rune is a testament to the Christian intervention allowing for “the unknowable Divine” i.


God to be interpreted. There’s a ton of information provided on each of the runes, their meanings when paired with other runes, and a lot of information on how to read them. It’s the book I wish I had back in the 90s when I bought this book – I’da converted decades sooner and would’ve been much farther along in my studies.

So you can buy this, and you’ll get a decent primer and a set of runes, but you’ll be missing out on the meat and soul of the faith and history behind the runes, and the dive into deeper waters is well worth the reward!

The Book of Runes, by Ralph Blum, words. The Runes tell stories if you can hear them speak, or find that certain spark deep within you. The Book of Runes is simple, complete, sturdy, and very portable, first written 34 years ago, by a man born in After a few searches, I found a book through Amazon that appeared to have a good chance of covering what I wanted to learn, so that I could reference the Runes for myself and for anyone who wanted to know things about the Runes: I would like to briefly quote the work, because the quote echoes me and adds quite a bit of quality to my sentiments about the Runes, also, as an academics tutor, from age 15, now nearly a senior citizen, I have realized that knowing something has many rich dimensions: I had a strong feeling Without bothering to pull off the road, I opened my Rune notes and He the author said, “I didn’t even try to explain.

He’s interesting, inspired, and spiritual, yet an educated author and scholar.

For me, it Blum’s book is only a start. While in college, I took a course on Research, and chose the Runes for my project.

I found tidbits and clues, other opinions, and such, but the striking thing about the Runes is how ancient they really are, and that they were one of the first alphabets to exist, written boustrephedron – as one would plow a field, and from as old as B. From my early exposure to the Runes, I noticed a resemblance between some of the Runes and our own alphabet, and I recently did some research to fill in a few blanks in the story, because of my continuing personal curiosity and an unnatural relationship with the unknown.

I will definitely recommend this book for anyone who’s truly interested in the Runes. For dessert, Blum delivers a few pages of reference material he’s cited and learned from over years of work. No doubt some of it can be accessed online. I call my own computer when we are on speaking terms”The Oracle of Delphi. They are a rich “spirit-language” in my mind as is visual art.

The mysteries of art are what holds the gaze as much as beauty. Simply trust the mind to speak when it is ready.

Be ready to be surprised. The curious, the open-minded, the non-literal and the intuitive will enjoy unlocking the mysteries of the ancients, the hidden life lessons inherent in the Runes, though from so long ago. Best runes and best text about runes and their meanings on the market today. boook


Book of Runes

The stones are very good to handle and very clear. The writing is quite eloquent, very knowledgeable and readily understood to produce a clear reading of the runes. I have long been a fan of the I Ching. Turns out it’s for good reason; Blum also ralpu the I Ching regularly, and used it along with the Runes themselves to create this Runic system. I’ve used it numerous times since I got it a few weeks ago, and every reading was spot on.

Even the “Odin’s Rune” readings — pulling one Rune only from the bag — gave me an accurate and thought-provoking reading. The Runes are made of heavy plastic or resin — I would have preferred a natural substance myself — but they are what they are and are functional.

It is a much faster and easier-to-understand way to obtain Universal wisdom than the I Ching, which is for many people, very confusing due to the time and society in which it was written. I highly recommend these Runes to anyone as ralpb valuable addition to their collection of oracles.

I have been faithfully using this every day. It helps me contemplate things going on in my life. I keep a journal of what I pull every day and have been able to identify patterns which was very helpful to me blmu working on ways to resolve things and move forward. Ruhes book is good, but the runes that were included in the package were chipped and powdery, and the letters were badly painted, so I will use a paint pen to recolor the letters and a sealer to seal the stones so they will last a while.

Not going to send them back. It’s not worth the effort. The book is what I really wanted. Not worth the The better deal would be to buy an older version of the book without the stones and make your own. I recently ordered the same for my I had received this book that comes with a set of runnes as a gift a few years ago and loved it. I recently raalph the same for my grand daughter and sent it to her. She is thrilled with it. We both find consulting the runes helps rxlph get us out of our heads and all its mind chatter.

It’s a wonderful tool for restoring calm, quiet contemplation and heeding a guidance not driven by fear and ego. See all reviews.
