Many years ago the ancients from the Italic tribes passed on a certain initiate to the Norse folk and the Germanic tribes. This was a gift to have the blessing of a wizened one.
What this meant to the tribes and people of those times was the pathway to knowledge. Young girls were able to apprentice with a village elder who knew how to cast the Runes. Some were able to connect to the very essence of the Runes in simple runescript. The young lady who was able to master the art of divination would learn how to mark the Runes used to read for the elders, and then the tribe.
The Runes had to be cut from the bark of a Yew tree, then shaved to perfection with the Rune symbols stained upon them… often in blood. The Runes were personal and were only to be used by the person who made them. Often the Runemistress was very beautiful, with many suitors, and yet she would often choose not to marry. The reason for her remaining unwed was often written about in runic lore as being her consecration to the craft of seer, or wise one. In this capacity she would be wed to all who needed her aid .
The tribes often called upon her to bless their crops, or divine who they should marry or when they would have children. Most Runemistresses were good and were healers, however, there were those who could curse and cast spells to harm an enemy or favor one person over another.
The Runes are neutral. The energy they put out into the spheres is blunt and speaks to the energy of the person who asks anything of them. They are neither good nor bad. The Runemistress could make the choice to either use them to enhance the lives of the tribes who sought her skills; or she could use the power of the Runes to seek elevation beyond her calling.
The Runes are always asking for respect. They demand it. They were often kept in a leather pouch or a cloth of fine thread housed them. They will not respond if they are not charged properly.
A Runemistress would be taught the art from a very early age. Often, by her Mother or another female family member with the gift. The Runes became sacred to some and feared by others over time. There are places in the world today where oddly enough they originated and are now banned from use. Sometimes the truth can be harsh. Those cultures who had long associations with their use no doubt recognize the accuracy of their knowledge of life and all life brings to us.
The use of Runes for divination and carvings upon weapons for battle has both been a blessing and a curse. The cycle of life is not always easy and the Runes point to the path that they see. They can give much-needed knowledge as to the pitfalls that may be avoided as well as the advice one would be wise to take when they cannot be avoided.
In any case, the Runemistress still exists with all the same gifts and responsibilities of her predecessors. Her role in our time may be more varied and she may be doing more modern things but she will stand out from the crowd and her gifts will become apparent to those around her very early on during her childhood. She will become aware of them when they appear and often she will instinctively use them for good.
