Re: [runes-divination] Staves & Spells
- 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.

- 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
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-
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
