Pick a RuneThe runes are turned over and mixed up. Think about some problem and the click on a rune.
ODIN'S RUNEThis is the most practical and simple use of the Oracle and consists of selecting one Rune from an overview of an entire situation. Drawing a single Run can help you to focus more clearly on your issue and provide you with a fresh perspective. What you are in effect doing is inviting the mind to function intuitively.
Odin's Rune is particularly helpful under stressful conditions. You may find yourself dealing with matters that demand action now, and the truth is you don't have enough information. To reach a decision, all you require is your bag of Runes and, if possible, a quiet place.
A friend who is a senior corporate officer recently told me that he had suddenly been confronted with a crisis which amounted to taking over the company or resigning. "I headed for the men's room, clutching my bag of Runes," he said. "When I came out, I was on my way to becoming the Chief Executive Officer." The Rune he had drawn was Dagaz, the Rune of breakthrough and transformation.
Drawing a single Rune is not only valuable in a time of crisis: The technique is useful any time you want an overview of your situation. On a long drive or commute between home and work, some people keep their Runes beside them on the seat. Drawing Odin's Rune often reveals the humor in a difficult matter. And why not? God's favorite music is said to be laughter.
If you are concerned about someone who is far away and you are unable to contact that person, focus directly on the individual, and then draw a Rune. This practice opens a doorway in the mind to the non-ordinary. You may find that it is, indeed, possible to know things at a distance.
Use the single Rune drawing to honour significant events in your life: birthdays, the New Year, solstices and equinoxes, the death of a friend, births, anniversaries, and other special occasions. You may want to record these castings in a Rune Journal.
