What does the word ‘Rune’ mean?
The word rune has meant similar things to the various groups of ourancestors that used them. The Goths called them ‘Runa’ the SecretWhispers. The Hungarians called them ‘Rovás’, which means carvingand the Serbs ‘Rabos’ or ‘Rabus’. In Old English we find the use ofthe words ‘Roun’ and ‘Rowan’ associated with the runic way. InIceland they were called ‘Runar’, a magical sign. The Welsh have theword ‘Rhin’, which refers to a mysterious secret. The Old Celts,Anglo-Saxons and the Old Irish referred to them as ‘Rún’, usedsometimes to refer to a secret meeting. Scottish Gaelic also has theword ‘Rún’, which refers to a secret mystery, purpose, wish or love.All stem it seems from the Indo-European word ‘Ru’, ‘Ró’ or ‘Reu’.This root word means to carve, roar or incant.
Archaeological and Historical Observations
of the Origins of the Runes
It has been suggested by some Runic scholars that the runes are adevelopment of Phoenician, Latin, Greek or the Etruscan alphabets.Others have suggested that the Atlantians created them. Most ofthese theories are based on observing the similarities betweenlettering systems used by neighbouring people, often found in caves,and their movement between places and the fact that to date no oneis sure where they originated, archeologically and historicallyspeaking. No doubt a significant level of lettering interchangeoccurred over the several thousand years of our recorded history.For a long time the orthodox view was that runes were only aphonetic alphabet and a numeric system. Few now deny that ourancestors saw them as special and magical. A recent theory is thatone group designed the runes in extreme antiquity. This theory ties inwith those who think it was a long-gone advanced civilization that firstused them. This theory comes from observing the regulargeometrical nature of all runic writings, and is the one closest to thetruth in my mind.
The Flower of LifeIn my view the truth of their origin is that the Runes are geometricalsymbol generated by the natural frequencies that materialised themultiverse. Geometry is at the foundation of all things, and it is myview that Spirit (Life) takes form through the vehicle geometries.From this perspective the runes are older than time and permeate allexistence. They were not designed or developed by humans; theywere observed by the wise as natural phenomena. Runes are anintrinsic part of the language of light and the language of nature.They are part of us and we of them. Looking at a rune is like lookingat page of the Book of Life.
What are Runes?
Elder Futhark SequenceRunes are many things to many people, all of whom have a slightlydifferent perspective of them as all have a different perspective ofSelf. They are simple letter-like shapes that have representedphonetics, numbers and concepts worldly and otherwise for hundredsand in some places thousands of years. At the same time every‘Rune’ is a ‘Mystery, a stream of profound wisdom and a key to ourUniversal Mind.
I see the Runes as children of the Sacred Primal Crystal Snowflake,as it is this pattern that birthed them (the Seed of Life, above right ).They are one with the sacred geometry of our cells, our DNA. Theyare keepers of the Akashic memory of all life, experiences andpotentiality.Runes are geometrical forms that represent one of the millions ofelemental facets that the Source of All weaves constantly in thecontinuing manifestation of all that is. Symbolically, local to our world,they can represent the archetypes of total human experience. Asuniversal geometric shapes they represent mental channels ofcreative power and function as emissaries from the Heart-Mind of theCosmos. Their intelligence is our unified universal intelligencereflected back to us through their geometric forms.
