Begin by setting up an altar to the runes.
If possible, it should include an image of Odin as well as symbols of the Nornir.
Set the runes in a circle around an offeeing bowl.
You will also need a diabetic lance with which to draw blood.
Consecrate your space.
Have a representation of fire in each side of the runes, and a bowl of cold water, or ice, on the other.
Then make a paste of the following, using roughly equal amounts of each:
- Red Ochre
- High Quality Cacao
- Henna Powder
- Alder Sap
- Dragon's Blood Powder
- Your Own Blood (only a few drops)
- High Quality Ground Coffee
- Ground Amber
- Any powdered herbs you feel are appropriate
Then grind everything together with a mortal and pestle and set this plate in a bowl on the altar.
Additionally, there should be a circle of tea lights around the runes and six large candles.
NOTE: I will be posting this ritual in sections, that way it is easier to read.
