Fire jump

The sacred fire, border between the old and the new.
After the May Royal couple jumped over the holy fire,every body is invited to jump over the protected, cleans, and plans and wishes do come true. When you jump as a couple over the holy fire, you promise a year and a day, to stay connected.

The power of the Rune Stones

The runic script is the oldest known script used by Germanic peoples from the second to the seventeenth century. Runic stones are named after the Gothic word “Runa” which meant secret. Each symbolic rune sign is a storage for intuitive knowledge, and it takes insight and knowledge to read the stones clearly and articulate them to the outsider.

When I am interpreting my stones, I always note how it fascinates people, especially by the pureness of the stones with their signs. Meet with the old ritual of the rune stones. They provide wisdom and insight.
