As many of you know who watch my channel on YouTube I am working very hard to create two new decks. Originally it was a massive 104 card Norse Mythology Oracle, Tarot and Rune deck in one super deck. As a travelling reader I am weighed down by all the decks and more and more I feel that the frequencies of the decks are not in alignment with the New Air Epoch frequencies that are swirling around us. After researching for months to find 104 Norse characters for each card I began to assign runes and realised that I needed more than the standard twenty-four symbols.
I set a collective rune for everyone to get involved. The second rune between Sun and Night but as Patrick so perfectly channelled, it’s a really tricky frequency. More about that later if you scroll down from Patrick himself. Today I have blown open the whole notion for you all by grouping together six symbols. You can pick one. You can choose several or all of them. Just have fun. Either add comments here or better still create your own Rune Raker Video and share your Rune Shuffle with everyone. Ill create a page here for all your contributions. So excited.
Digging in deeply to the history of the runes I realised that there was a whole string of missing runes that came from the many different regions where the runic Futhark alphabet had spread. Soon I had over fifty and then I realised that what was needed was seventy-eight. That would be a rune for each tarot card, meaning that those readers not familiar with runes could find a link to a tarot card to help prompt the messages they were seeing.
I was so excited and drew up all the symbols. Next was the tricky task of understanding the letter or phonetic sound they represented as defined by the rune poems. Their origins were important too, Elder Futhark, Dutch, Frisian, Scandinavian, Gothic, Anglo-Saxon, Icelandic, Medieval or Younger Futhark. I knew I needed to channel with my tarot and oracle decks ways into understanding their meanings. This has been a fascinating journey.
Because I just adore sharing everything I decided to ask you, my subscribers on YouTube to contribute your ideas too. Speaking with fellow readers and friends Cindy, Reem and Rob I asked them if they would also share their thoughts. Cindy offered to shuffle some cards and channel some thoughts but suggested she would record it as it was more fluid than writing it down. Great idea I replied, perhaps you might post it online? “Of course I would.” she responded. I immediately asked Rob and Reem if they would do the same too. They being young and lively, jumped in that very day to deliver their very own Rune Raker readings. So this project, so beloved of spirit, as the magical channelling shows, has rapidly turned into a beautiful collective project. We will share our creative process with you all, as we build this deck together and publish it.
It’s so exciting everyday. Rob had been chatting with me about a rune he’s saw in a meditation which I recognised as the rune I was hoping to assign as the Tarot card of the Hanged Man. So surprised at the cosmic gift of a rune in his head he opted to dig into his symbol. When he finished his Rune Shuffle I was stunned at the cards he drew. Spirit is turning on the magic in us all, so that this deck is rammed full of splendid messages that go deeper into the symbols than many modern Tarot decks. Here’s Rob
I was so overjoyed, like the big kid I am and so excited to see the reaction from all of you that when my phone pings and Reem tells me she has uploaded one too for the Rune Æppelbærer, I nearly passed out. I was spinning with excitement. From a brief exchange with Cindy in the morning to six hours later and the Rune Team had sprung into glorious action. My spirit ancestors were really determined to show us all that this deck is something they are excited about us producing together. So here’s Reem’s first Rune Shuffle.
Today I sat down and added a new rune shuffle of my own. I have to say the frequencies I uncovered were not at all the energies I expected but on settling into some research straight after I found the perfect words and energies of the time through the other words that surrounded the two symbols. Choosing to settle on just one clear choice was difficult as there was a gorgeous list of words and phrases in Old English that summed up the layers within the symbols so beautifully. In the end for now I’ve settled on Hod and Ætburstan, Hood and (Outburst) Burst Out. I’ll leave the reading to explain. My 4th Rune shuffle is now out and at the end of this post. It’s the Norns and they had a great message.
Your Rune Shuffles
Patrick who has been a friend for over a year started a channel without me realising. So rude of me. Today he posted his video ‘My Rune Raking’ as he sat with the energies of the rune I set for everyone to have a stab with. I’ve posted here on my website because it would be great if more of you, amazingly intuitive readers had a go too. I was fascinated that part of the energy for Patrick seemed to be distraction. Like a Cosmic hand trick to stop him looking in the right direction when it was actually part of the energy he was about to channel, something fleeting and intangible. That soon dawned on Patrick as he’s always as sharp as a tack and like the lightbulb going off he suddenly opened himself up to the frequencies. Then so many ideas rolled and tumbled out.
I have no idea yet what this symbol might be but Patrick has opened some interesting first thoughts and captured some energies that I trust he and others will expand upon. It’s clearly a difficult rune to capture but what a fun project. So over the Patrick and waking the bears.
More From Team Rob & Reem
Reem settled into a second rune and was channelling what I glimpsed might be the forces used by the High Priestess or the Empress, in Tarot terms, to create life within physical forms. Us, plants, animals even bacterias. I’m not saying I am right, I am just sharing a first thought that flowed when researching the rune symbol.
Rob, Reem and I piled into a live feed Patrick was doing, along with many other YouTube tarot readers, to show our appreciation for his Rune Shuffle and to enthuse each other about the collective frequencies of the runes and this project. Live feeds have such a different energy frequency that is full of joy, laughter and magic created by everyone together, that Rob was inspired to jump with that joy into a live Rune Raker for a set of four symbols.
The frequency was so magical and the messages gleaned by everyone sharing this project allowed the most wonderful messages to emerge, until he hit the card of the World Serpent and the energy of Ragnarok. The frequency was a shift into a darkness and the connection dropped. He opened a new feed to complete the Rune Cycle but Ragnarok in rural Portugal didn’t let me rejoin. I love how spirit is playful and tests us just like the messages in the runes the collective was exploring. Amazing.
What About An Artist?
I’m glad you asked. We have been lucky to engage an amazing artist who works with clays and earth that she digs up from the world around her and turns into paints that shine with the energies of the natural world. Olga Lamas is a beautiful friend of mine for over twenty years. We met in London when she worked for the artist Andrew Logan. I have travelled around her native Peru with her which you can read all about on here.
Olga has a Masters Degree in Art from Goldsmiths in London and is a well known curator in Peru too. Her art is full of layered expression and she works to create form to the energies she sees in the natural world, to express the sounds and feelings all around her. Best of all she channels her expressions thought the alchemy of the entire process, weaving energies into the paints as she creates them and then drawing these frequencies into patterns and forms of deep expression. She is also working to soften the runes into fluid movements of distinctive ordered form and direction to express the mysticism within each symbol. Crafting the calligraphy.
I will elaborate on Olga and her gifts in a few weeks when I go to stay with her, here in Portugal. This is a glimpse of work she has done recently, though not for this deck. It’s shows why Cindy, Reem and Rob are as excited as me as they contain layers of expressions and images that allow readers to dive deeply into the artwork to retrieve hidden depths. I just wanted to get you all excited about Olga’s work and the creation of this magical project.
Here are my Rune Shuffles too.
And here’s the second one from me.
