By the ancient powers, from the mists of time,
Hail Odin, Father and wise one , Master of the Runes
I ( insert your name ) welcome You, May Your Valkyries find me worthy
When the web of my life is cut.
Through Your Gift we glimpse the web of Wyrd
So do i seek the knowledge Your Staves reveal.
I mark these Runes, with your powerful sign,
Hold up Runes ( have them in a muslin bag or mojo bag )
Wherever I travel, wherever I roam,
Protect me well, and bring me home'.
May I sit in Valhalla, with ever flowing honey mead
( Raise bowl )
Patron to the skalds,Spear Shaker
Bringer of the mead of inspiration
May my words be pleasing to Your ears.
( Raise the mead )
Accept my offering, O Father and bless me with your Wisdom.
Bring forth that which is good, and sustaining
For every living thing
I thank you.
Now your Runes are ready to be used.
