I had the wonderful experience of a personalized rune reading by my friend Krystal Bell a few days ago. There are a number of different layouts that can be used with runes, and the one she used in my reading gave insight into unresolved issues from past lives.
In my case, this reading gave me some information that was really useful in my EFT tapping practice. It helped to shed light on a blind spot that I had been experiencing with some situations in my current life, that allowed me to access the emotions that I've been repressing around these situations, and use EFT tapping to help process them.
Readings of any kind can be used in this way. One thing that I appreciated in particular about this rune reading was that the information it provided (insight into the unresolved issues from a past life), might not be apparent through other means. However, most readings of any type will give you information about yourself that may not be obvious on the surface. This can be great food for thought, material for reflection, and valuable in informing your EFT tapping. Enjoy! :)
