Rune Helper: Wunjo

Runes are a system for self-help and guidance, used for many
centuries by the ancient people of Scandinavia, Germany, and the
British Isles.

WUNJO represents joy, the unalloyed state of pleasure and bliss. It is both the simple, unbidden moment of happiness and the more lasting condition of fulfillment. In Norse culture, this feeling of joy was specifically linked to a sense of community.

Happiness flows from favorable involvements, both personal and professional. Although joy cannot be pinned down, conditions are ripe for deepening and extending your relationship with the things in life that give you joy. This is a rune of blessings and plenty.

By the way, the runes I saw in my dream, looked nothing like the ones shown above. They were all the same size, seemed to be made of stone, but each with a very different, complex geometrical designs. The way Dominos are all the same size, but each has a different pattern. The geometrical designs were weirdly complex. Nothing I have ever seen in real life. Ever. Really. It was these patterns that could intermingle with the patterns of the other runes that produced the totally different properties than either alone would be.

Very strange indeed.

I had the strangest dream one night years ago. I dreamt of runes. Mind you I have absolutely no idea what they are or used for-I had never heard of them before. I only remember that each emitted the color of smoke that was the color of each of the rune-blue, red and yellow. And that each smoke had a property. I don't remember which color produced what property, but do remember the characteristics themselves. One was for life, one for death and the other protection from death, but not life giving of its self. They could be combined in various ways to produce completely different properties.

It really was the strangest dream I can ever recall having. I don't believe in any kind of superstition at all. I have no idea where it came from.

Love the runes, they can be comforting...but to me, the important thing in life is contentment..happiness can come and go, but achieving contentment is, in my opinion, harder to do but more satisfying.
