Runes are a Norse alphabet developed around 200 BCE, from characters used for magical purposes. According to Norse myth, the alphabet was discovered in a vision by the god Odin. The word ‘rune’ literally means a ‘whisper’ or ‘secret.’ Runes have been used as a divinatory device from the beginning. In the present time, runes are used as a device for meditation and divination.
Othala Rune: Much like Fehu this is a rune of wealth. But unlike Fehu, Othala represents a wealth that cannot be sold. This is wealth like family, friendships or our culture and heritage that is passed down to us. It represents an enclosure and maintains the existing state of things as they presently are.
