What are runes?

Originating in the ancient Germanic culture, the runes are a symbolic language that describes the structure and workings of the human psyche. They are a powerful tool for personal transformation. The runes also illustrate the evolution of consciousness through the three levels of our being: Body, Mind, and Soul. 

The runes drawn in a reading describe how one’s unique mental and emotional forces are interacting in that moment, and indicate the degree of balance or imbalance within the consciousness of the individual. Patrick uses the Nine World spread – a little-known method of interpreting runes which gives greater specificity in the meaning of each rune and the relationships between them.


The ancient Germanic culture, among many others, believed the universe was comprised of 9 worlds making up the Tree of Life, Yggdrasil. Our world, Midgard or “Middle Earth,” is the convergence point of the other 8 worlds, or dimensions, the energies of which mix to create our own. Each of the 24 runes are at home in one of the 8 surrounding worlds, as well upon one of the three levels of our being (Body, Mind, Soul). 

The runes are the language of the Subconscious and Unconscious minds, which account for 90% of our mental activity and are the unexplored driving forces behind all of our behaviors, thoughts, emotions and desires. In addition to helping us better understand our Subconscious and Unconscious minds, runes may also be used as a language to reprogram them, if they have become stuck in repetitive, unproductive and self-sabotaging patterns. Patrick provides all clients a unique meditation to assist with this.
