The Welz Chi Generator
(orgone generator)

is the ideal tool to boost the power of your Rune magick.  This extraordinary technology allows you to provide any magickal operation with a continuous supply of life force.  Life force is the motor of any magick, or magickal work at a distance.  The transfer test in our web sites will give you irrefutable proof of this fact.  It is superior to any tranditional method, because there is simply no instance where people can generate life force continuously.  No group of magicians, coven, etc., can walk in circles and chant (a common method of generating life force) for weeks on time or kill chicken (another, rather primitive, method) at all times.  The Welz Chi Generator works especially well with Runes! Call us for a free test with the Rune of your choice!

A word to the student of the courses

I began to study Rune magick 1972 while in Berlin.

I have written the Rune courses starting in 1982. These courses have striking differences to other approaches to Rune magick that I have learned in the past.

I have recognized the Runes as primary abstractions. In fact, their simplicity, yet complex effects, pointed to the fact that these abstractions were of a pre-linguistic, in some situations even non-linguistic kind. This means that we can trace back this type Runic interaction with the environment to the earliest origins of humankind, even before language evolved in its present day form. Approaching Runes this way, I could no longer treat Runes in the "traditional way", as did practically all of the authors of the past, namely as a magickal system that they viewed as a Germanic substitute, alternative, or replacement, for the magickal systems that are based on the Cabbala. This was the approach that has been reverberating throughout all Runic literature that I have studied, and it is still so in practically all Runic literature today. However, the simplicity of the Runic approach to magick and the fact that they were not as easily to control by some people as were the cabbalistic energies made me aware that there was a dimension to this ancient system that traditional magicians have overlooked - or of which they have not been aware at all, even if some of their practices sometimes included a few elements of this dimension. This dimension reaches far beyond the language-based structures of the Cabbala.

Having had this experience of Runes, I then decided to approach the Runes as creating and defining energies rather than created and well-defined ones. When I established this approach to Runes, they naturally revealed their immense power to me instantly! In addition to that, they turned out to be relatively easy to control, since I approached them according to their nature: as energies belonging to the realms of creation, as defining energies rather than the typical cabbalistic ones that are well defined. I did not force the Runes into the mold of "definitions" and consequently I had easy access to the enormous power of the creative realms. These realms are beyond the well-defined energies of planetary energies (or entities of the spheres in a Bardonian sense) and they can be used as modifiers of such entities. This became very clear when I evoked Bardonian spirits and other entities inside a Runic circle. The Runes allowed the creation of energy fields (entities) with a power and flexibility that simply cannot appear when we work with the same energies without the impact of a connection to the realms of creation. This approach to Runes is the crux of the courses and the magickal practice therein that you are going to study in my courses. With this approach, naturally all ethnic-based claims of ownership of this method disappeared: a method that reaches back to the very dawn of humankind, even beyond!

Naturally, I used the 18 Runes that Guido von List introduced. It did not take much practice to recognize their superiority over all other attempts, including those of which their authors and promoters claim to have greater "antiquity". It seems very much that List was onto something when he had his "revelations", perhaps without ever realizing fully just how powerful his system can be.

After experiencing the creation-dimension of the Runes (above all the 18 Futhork Runes, i.e., the Armanen System), there is no way we ever can speak again of a Rune magick besides the known cabbalistic methods or as a substitute of these methods based on Germanic religion. Quite to the contrary, the Armanen Futhork is a system of creative energies that naturally reaches far beyond these well-defined cabbalistic energies. We can use these qualitatively superior, defining and creating Runic energy fields to achieve ultimate magickal flexibility, either in conjunction with well-defined energies (Bardonian entities cabbalistic spirits, etc.) or independently from them.

The far-reaching potential of this new method and new approach became obvious when, at some point (still while writing the lessons of the Basic Rune course under the aspect of this new approach) I evoked a Germanic god with a Rune. Before the god could manifest, the Rune asked me what god I wanted to create!

In the light of life force technology that I developed (the Chi Generator) and the explanation of magick, radionics, and the power of abstractions such as thought forms, gods, sigils, radionic settings, etc. (see my course "Magick of the Future"), the power of a Rune magick that is rooted in the realms of creation increased significantly! A Rune can then become a creative energy that is continuously powered by life force coming from an orgone generator. Your can direct the general direction of its action and define the outcome of the operation. The Rune (or bind-rune) will then be the ultimate thought-form that works independently and creatively towards the result with an efficiency that the traditional "spirits" certainly can never exhibit.

When studying the courses, especially the Basic Rune Course, be aware of the power of the realms of creation that you learn to access with your first lesson. With this awareness, you will gain a maximum benefit from your studies and you certainly will have the practical experience that helps you understand and use the tremendous power of the Armanen Runes.

Runes And Religion

Because of their power, Runes or Rune-like symbols have been part of religious systems in the past as well as in present times.  However, we cannot identify Runes with any religious system even if they were an important part of it. Keep in mind that THE BASIC TECHNOLOGIES OF RUNE MAGIC ARE INDEPENDENT FROM ANY RELIGIOUS BELIEF STRUCTURE. TRUE RUNE MASTERS encourage incorporation of Runic practice in any religious system, provided that its teachings and actions encompass tolerance and love. We do not approve of the use of Runes by groups whose main purpose is the teaching and practice of racism, sexism, bigotry, hate and intolerance. We know that RUNES ARE FOR EVERY INTELLIGENT BEING OF THE UNIVERSE!  The Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes are a symbolism that represents universal cosmic structures. They connect with

  the natural zodiac of creative energies
 the periodic system of chemical elements
 the world crystal, and crystal structures in general
  a Runic musical scale
  the system of numbers

RUNES ARE COSMIC ENERGIES OF CREATION that connect you with the WORLD CRYSTAL. As such, we can see them as the basic elements of A MYSTICAL LANGUAGE THAT GIVES US ACCESS TO THE REALMS OF CREATION. Runes allow us to participate in the eternal processes of creating, re-creating, and shaping our destinies and our universes.

EACH RUNE IS A SWITCH, OR TRIGGER, TO A SEED IDEA OF THE REALMS OF CREATION. Such a seed idea helps you to connect the un-speakable realms of creation with your world. This connection gives you the power to create wherever you wish to! Therefore, to combine Runes means to combine seed ideas expressed in the realms of creation and to practice Runes means to creatively act upon your universe!

Runes are Symbols on Many Levels

First, they carry a number that defines their position within the symbolism as a whole. A RUNIC NUMEROLOGY has emerged from this connection. Using this Runic numerology in combination with a RUNIC ASTROLOGY you can find out which creative energies, or PERSONAL RUNES, are the most dominant ones in your present life.

Second, each Rune is a symbol. You can draw or visualize this symbol. Each Runic symbol gives you access to the specific power of the Rune it represents. The graphic symbols of the Runes connect with the WORLD CRYSTAL. They are representatives of the creative energies of the world crystal. The symbol of the world crystal is the hexagon with the three inscribed diameters. If you look at a regular quartz crystal from the top you will see this structure. Each Rune fits neatly into this symbol of the world crystal.

Next, each Rune naturally connects with a MANTRA, OR WORD OF POWER. You can use this mantra to bring the power of the corresponding Rune into manifestation.

Each Rune and combination of Runes does also connect with SPECIFIC SOUND FREQUENCIES. These frequencies are useful for healing, chakra balancing, and many other psychic practices. In the Rune Master Radionics Program you can make use of these very special Runis sounds with their EIGHTEEN TONES IN THE OCTAVE and you wil naturally learn to cherish them!

The Rune Master Radionics Program
Make use of the creative energies of the universe and give the most powerful boost possible to your magick! It has six positions plus an Od transfer function. The Positions:
Creative energy- Trend in the environment - Main trend - Target - Alternate target - Grounding. In addition, it has a position for the transfer of OD.
10 octaves with 18 Rune Tones each! Play the sound of the Rune of your choice and have the "Hammer" generator of Od vibrate in this exact frequency for this extra super boost of your rune Magick!

HAND AND BODY POSTURES of Runes are another way to draw Rune energies. They are the basis for a powerful Rune Yoga. In connection with a Runic Hermetic Medicine, Rune Yoga is a powerful tool for healing on all levels.

If you have a Welz Chi Generator, you can give your runes extra power of an intensity that has been achieved never before in history.  E-mail me for a free transfer!

How Runes Can Help You

Runes are creative energies. Consequently, they act fast and very powerfully. You can trigger them easily. Many of our students have experienced desired results fast, often overnight. Since they represent creative energies, Runes can help in overcoming negative karma.

Contrary to many religious systems, RUNES ARE LIFE-AFFIRMATIVE !!!  RUNIC PRACTICE IS APPLIED METAPHYSICS. With Runic practice, YOU UNFOLD YOUR NATURAL ABILITIES you have had all your life, but of which you may never have been aware. Runes allow you to flex your psychic muscle in the same way others may take advantage of their wealth, prestige, or position on the ladder of social success. If you are enjoying this latter advantage already, Runes can certainly boost your position and help you get still further ahead!

Rune Masters believe that EVERY HUMAN BEING HAS A RIGHT TO HAPPINESS, health, peace of mind, prosperity, and abundance. There is enough out there to satisfy everyone. Rune Masters see it as their obligation to help others achieve what they are entitled to. Rune Masters emphasize that a belief system, or religion, which concerns itself in the main with the IF AND WHEN at the expense of the HERE AND NOW is not worth any serious consideration. If you are unable to control your HERE AND NOW, you have no hope for the IF AND WHEN! The BASIC RUNE COURSE will teach you the means of taking care of your present situations, or problems, be they emotional, material, mental, or spiritual.

Rune Masters will not teach you lots of dogmas and "secret wisdom lessons" at the expense of practical, hands-on experience. Furthermore, we will never demand that you believe us blindly. In the BASIC RUNE COURSE, you will find the means of checking for the truth in what you learn.

Runic Practice Will Help You Achieve Rapidly:

General Self Improvement
Spiritual Advancement
Experience of the Creative - Divine
Oneness with the Higher Self
Use of your Healing Powers
Capability to give Rune Readings
Increase of your Psychic Powers
Protection Against Attacks
Understanding of Karma and Past Life Recalls
Changing your Destiny for the Better
Effective Help for Others
Success and Power
Peace of Mind and Emotional Balance
Awakening of your Chakras
Attraction of Love and Friendship
Financial Blessings and Prosperity
And Much More!


If you have followed more recent metaphysical trends, you know that there are many schools of Runic thought. Most of these schools have adopted various runic systems that contains 24 symbols and even more. I have no problem with the 24 Runes, and I am quite happy that some of the less savory runic groups are using the weaker system.

For the serious student of the matter, however, I would like to set a few facts straight. Since Ralph Blum has published his "Book of Runes," the metaphysically inclined public became increasingly interested in Runes. Blum's book was successful because it offered a washed down version of runic practice that was custom tailored to the typical simple-mindedness of the run off the mill New Ager. Blum certainly deserves a lot of credit for awakening the awareness of runes in many people who otherwise would have never known of this fine system.

The success of Ralph Blum's book led to the usual consequences. Publishers hurried to throw book after book on the market. To fill an increasing interest of the public some publishers went even one step further. They contracted professional writers who had nothing but surface knowledge about Runes. Most of these publications have one common flaw: the self appointed "expert" writers had, like the successful Ralph Blum, no idea of the deeper side of Runic mysteries, let alone true experience or legitimate initiation. All too often students who believed the slogans of publishers became rapidly disappointed and frustrated, since most of the half baked fakers whose systems they studied could not deliver.

One American author, Don Tyson and his publisher, Llewellyn, even boasted to be the first on the planet to ever have published Rune cards. Those good folks obviously were not aware that Karl Spiesberger's book included a deck of Rune cards. Spiesberger's book, with Rune cards, appeared on the German market some 35 years before Llewellyn's "first deck" creation and claim. Spiesberger's book is a classic that even the typical mediocre "expert" of Runes should have known! Perhaps they lied for marketing purposes.

Until quite recently, the Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes were the main system of Runic practice in Germany. Then several excellent scholars began to search for Runic alphabets that may have predated the Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes historically and they were developing a system of rune magic from one of them. This was an interesting venture indeed, especially since the origin of the Armanen Runes is based on insights of one single person, Guido con List. However, what's of an older age is not necessarily more useful, or more powerful.

To fully understand the scope of what nonsense some these researchers conjured up, compare this venture with the general progress in technology throughout the ages. In our days, nobody in his or her right mind would use stone axes and live in caves, being convinced that such things are superior to the achievements of modern technology in dealing with the many challenges of modern life, just because such primitive technology is "elder."

True, most Runic arrays, even Blum's cooked-up system, are O.K. for divination, religious practice, and even for simple magic. What they cannot do is bring you in touch with the deeper sides of Runic wisdom. This is so because not one of these arrays is a true symbolism. The most important characteristic of a true symbolism is that the position of each symbol in relation to every other symbol is of crucial importance. Consequently, once you know the esoteric structure of a symbolism and the meaning of one of its symbols, you are naturally capable to precisely establish the meanings of all other symbols. Another important characteristic of a true symbolism is that the energy of the symbolism as a whole is qualitatively and quantitatively superior to the sum total of its individual symbols. Systems that lack these characteristics are, often worthless, arrays of incoherent symbols and not true symbolisms.

The symbolism of the Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes has more than just one esoteric structure as its basis:
The Hexagon with the three inscribed diameters: This figure is often referred to as "the world crystal." In this figure you can easily find every one of the Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes. Crystal practices with the Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes are very powerful! Of course, you will look in vain for a structural connection between a crystal and any one of the arrays of 24, 25, or even more "runes." 
The two Runic zodiacs: The natural zodiac of 16 + 2 basic energies as found in many traditions such as the Wiccan tradition. The other zodiac is the ancient subdivision of the year in 18 sectors of 20 days each. 
The periodic system of chemical elements. This, too, connects with the number of the Sacred Futhork, 18. The first period has two elements, hydrogen and helium. The second period has eight elements, and the third period has eight elements. The total of the first three periods is 18. The fourth and fifth periods have 18 elements each! The implications of this cosmic relation are enormous. Again, there is no hope for a Runic alchemy, a Runic homeopathy, and other practices that connect with the vibrations of chemical elements for arrays of 24, 25, or more "runes."

From the above follows that the symbolism of the Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes with its wide ranging correlations is esoterically much more meaningful and naturally more powerful than any of the arrays of Runic alphabets that the many modern day "experts" and rune gurus describe so exhaustively. Those persons limit themselves stubbornly to the use of Runes for readings and for a few practices of "religious magick" that usually connects with some nostalgia of ancient religion. Usually they see their Runes as symbols that stand for some worldly and spiritual meanings. Others see in the Runes an expression of some ancient gods. True perhaps, but the fact that Runes reach very much beyond the realm of the gods and that they give access to the realms of creation (realms where you can create your gods) escapes them all together, and so does the tremendous power that is contained in this ancient symbolism. We know that the ancient Norse religion was the last religious system that included some Runic practice in its belief structures. We know also that Runes cannot be limited to be part of any one religious belief system.

Because of their universal esoteric basis (some of which I have shown above) the Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes are the basis for an esoteric and spiritual technology that can be of use for every intelligent being in the universe. Because of the superior power of this technology, many professional healers, psychics, occultists, and other persons who are in leading positions, are naturally drawn to the Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes which they consider to be a most valuable asset.
