Ran’s Runes (divination tool in honor of the sea goddess)

From a dream I had. A plain mason jar with sand, shells, rocks and sea glass from our local shores. Added in small blue garden stones with runes painted on them.

Simply turn and watch the changing sandscape until a rune - or several - are clearly visible to guide you. :)

Oh, wow. I like this.

What a neat idea! I love this.

If you are not ready to exchange your own happiness for the suffering of others, you will never know happiness, in any life.
