“…By singing the runes you can connect to the primordial forces of the cosmos, you can vibrate in resonance with everything else and with the primordial power of the cosmos. In that way you can say that the runes are sound. And because sound is created by the primordial wind, the holy wind, ond, the runes are also wind, spirit.
By singing the runes you attune yourself to the cosmic web, to Urd‘s web, thereby receiving the knowledge and power of the Dreamtime by going into the creative process emanating from Ginnungagap. This is a way to transform yourself and the world through connecting to the intelligence field of Mother Earth, which contains the memories of those “distant times”. By singing the runes you overcome the gap between yourself and the sacred, tuning into the sacred, in fact, becoming sacred, whole, healed…”

NB: I have experienced the healing and the ‘becoming whole’, this is why I am so passionate about sharing what I know on this topic with others…
In this audio lecture, Chris looked at Ancestor Worship, chambered tombs, stone circles, alignments, and how they marked the line between world and spirit. Mainly studying Avebury, Dartmoor and Kilmarten Glen.
We all have a different view on spirituality and our relationship to the divine. Some people are into worship, some have a more experiential approach while others may be very superstitious.
I have always considered Spirits as allies. They may train you, guide you, teach you, test you, challenge you, protect you…etc, but it’s never a one-way relationship. It’s very possible that some of them might have an agenda. But in a relationship, there is no hierarchy, no sense of ‘I’m in charge and you just follow’, it’s more like a trade-off: I do something for you & your spiritual growth/path and you do something for me/us. Most of the time (at least in my case) the other part of the ‘deal’ is not verbalized, but I am aware of doing some of the work while sleeping (even if I can’t remember it), just like I am when I do readings or heal people. I dwell on the threshold…
