The 18 Sacred Futhork Runes have all characteristics of a hyperphysical symbolism. They are hyperphysical, because Runes reach into dimensions well beyond the confines of the limited space time continuum which physics, chemistry, etc. describe. The 18 Sacred Futhork Runes are a symbolism and not a mere array of Runes. They are a linear symbolism, or a numbered alphabet, where the position of each Rune is important. They are also a symbolism of higher order, which may be arranged in the zodiac, or in a plane, with its own, specific, interrelations from Rune to Rune. Positions within the symbolism allows to derive meanings of the Runes valid for the specific context of the symbolism. The mantras of the Runes constitute another, sound based, symbolism.
Runes and their symbolisms represent mappings of the Realms of Creation, which give us useful methods of interacting with those realms and relating them to the world in which we live.
The 18 Futhork Runes represent a path of initiation (which is beautifully shown in Odin's Rune Song), provided the student elevated him/herself to the level where the deep symbolic meanings of the various Rune documents can be understood. Odin's Song shows you how to experience Rune initiations, while the "magical poem" provides you with a system of triggers that gives you access to the transcendental energies of the Runes. To experience the depths of Odin's Rune Song is an important step toward gaining full access to the Rune Realms of Creation. After you experienced Odin's Rune Song and after you experienced the 18 stanzas of the magical poem, you will no longer have any doubt as to whether you should work with the 18 Sacred Futhork Runes, or whether you should dabble in some incoherent arrays of "Runes,” “Anglo-Saxon" (there are some 35-plus arrays of them), "elder," and what not.
The symbolism of the Runes is multi-ordinal and stratified knowledge. First, you will get acquainted with each individual Rune, and you will experience the realm of this Rune. With your Runic empowerments, first as a Knight, and then as a Rune Master, everything will fall in place, and the symbolism of the Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes will communicate itself to you. Form then on, you Runic work will be backed by your connection with the realm of the symbolism as a whole. It is also backed by the group energy of the Great, Time-less Brotherhood of Rune Masters and Rune Masters, past, present, and future. After the first initiation, you may again go the path of each individual Rune, now with increased contact with the realm of the symbolism, to a more advance level, up to your next initiation.
