Overview

Since the beginning of recorded history, the oracular tradition has been associated with healing and with the Divine. For Ralph H. Blum, the journey toward spiritual and emotional healing began with the 1982 publication of The Book of Runes. Since then, millions of people have welcomed the inspiration, guidance and comfort found in his interpretation of an ancient Western Oracle-- the Runes.

At this time in history, a recognition of the relationship between physical health and emotional well-being is crucial. Created specifically to support traditional forms of therapy, healing and recovery, as well as all Twelve Step programs, The Healing Runes offers a new interpretation of this sacred oracle for all those whose lives stand in need of healing.

When you are feeling alone or afraid; when you are sick physically or emotionally; or when your best friend is away and you need sound advice-- put your hand in the bag and pick a Rune. And when you are full of joy and praise and gratitude-- pick a Rune. The Healing Runes provides comfort for the heart, ease for the body, peace for the mind and nourishment for the soul.

Blum and Loughan have set out to fill a gigantic void in the healing field, and they have created healing interpretations for all the Runes. By using the classic Rune symbols and following the age-old Rune reading methods, they created a tool with 25 aspects for the emotional, psychological, and physical healing of people in times of crisis.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Ralph Blum's Runes are one of the world's great spiritual resources. They always speak to us from the depths of our own hearts."--Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love

"If we suffer from any universal disease, it is shallowness of imagination. The Healing Runes offers a remedy for that malady. Not just relief from anxiety, but profound gifts that signal the presence of soul-- intimacy, pleasure, beauty, love and piety."--Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul

"Blum and Loughan have created a unique, powerful and very practical tool for self-healing. Use it when you are in conflict or in pain. Or as a daily ritual to tap your inner wisdom. These Runes place the power to accelerate your healing in your own hands."--Harold H. Bloomfield, M.D., author of The Power of 5

    Good, true, new age but extremly religous!!!

    This is a wonderful book. Although it does NOT have the traditonal meanings it's still true and works. He makes everything sound good but you must understand it won't be that way. You may also want to think about not reading it if you are not Christan. It is very based on the Christan beliefs which really trurned me off sice I'm not of that faith. Still, it's good to have around and I would suggest borrowing it from a friend before buying your own.
