      Heilsa Randy,
      Pardon me, I am not PC.



      And to create a stave (sorry if I don't have the
      terminology down yet, still learnin'), you put the
      symbols of the rune together in one format? On a
      single piece of wood? Stone?
      **********What works for you? Have you added a bit of yourself to it?


      For example, there's someone in my life who wishes me
      ill. I would like to create a stave to protect myself,
      my space, etc. How do I know which runes will do that?
      I have read that Thurisaz is powerful in that regard,
      but would it be enough by itself, would I need a stave
      with two, three, four symbols?



      **********Randy, I don't know what works for you, but I find that a .45 or cold steel works for me. Don't misunderstand me. I spent the bulk of my life as a soldier and it works for me. Not saying that one can't protect oneself with runes, but I am at the end, a warrior in orientation.
      Frith,

      Jon

      Heill Rowan, Heil is used both to address a female as well as being gender- neutral but this tends to be rare since it makes people think of Sieg heil

        Heill Rowan,

        'Heil' is used both to address a female as well as being gender-
        neutral but this tends to be rare since it makes people think
        of 'Sieg heil' /'Heil Hitler', which were slogans used by commoners
        and soldiers during the rise of National Socialism in 1930s and 1940s
        Germany-Austria.

        So, its usage by heathens as 'heill' is technically incorrect
        (heill with two ll's is used to address a single male, again based
        on my own amateur knowledge of the language in its 13th century
        form), but the form commonly used with two ll's *does* have a
        reason behind the spelling error- we do not want to be mistaken
        for neo-nazis, and most of those who are ignorant of what heathenry
        actually is *will* connect 'sieg heil' or even 'heil' with neo-
        nazism.

        Which ones are popular?

        None, really. Deutsch, Anglo-Saxon, and English forms are
        equally popular. Modern heathens tend to use the language
        they natively learnt

        A more detailed explanation will follow offlist. Please feel free to
        contact me offlist on this matter.

        Heill ok vel

        Rig
