I literally created a set of runes using some random rocks and a silver sharpie. I have never done this before so it was an interesting experiment. So I decided to give myself a reading just to see how the runes energetically reacted with my hand. It was a very interesting feeling. So I gave myself a reading. It was amazingly accurate. Then I did one with my twin with the same remarkable results. And I have not even finished binding the runes.
