Rune connected to ancestors
In translation from old-Scandinavian Odal means inheritance of knowledge or things.
In its rite symbolizes the shield driven into the ground.
The energy of this rune reminds that one’s strength and wise is in his/hers experience as well as at the family,city and country’s history.
Even if sometimes you’ve got feeling that fate played a trick on you ,
that you should have born somewhere else ( eg. Peru)
Understanding properly the tune of this rune I would strongly advise to study this stimulating Peruvian aspect, to understand its nature.
Do it without running away from country you were born, don’t lose contact with your land. Sometimes, however the previous incarnation’s song is so strong that you decide to leave your home to come back to your previous roots.
If you have any doubt as to your conduct, this rune will support you by science
and protection of your ancestors.
Try to learn the history of your line and country. Remember it and try to learn from other’s mistakes.
This rune remainds:
It’s not mistake to be mistaken
But mistake is to lie in it
Knowing it exists
III Reich in its bungled adventure with runes used Otolaz as a symbol of protection
for its offsprings called Hitler Jungen. As we know from history, just like in case of Sowilo,
the rune Otolaz “defended” on her own. However , no conclusion has been drown from this lesson.
History repeats itself
Otala takes care of home and family brings in order, harmony, warmth,
calmness and sens of unity based on safety.
This rune says:
heart of your strenght
Lies in the strength
of your clan
In its action Otolaz as litmus paper will show you the weakest links in that,
what you understand as your home. This way it will give you time to replace the weakened brick before
the whole construction falls on your head.
The time when we most can feel the effects of this rune is the night from 31st October to 1st November.
This is the time of Celtic Samhain.
Time when the curtains of worlds are so close to each other,
that we can contact and call our dearest who had passed away.
Just to enjoy their presence and inquire advices from the fount of their wisdom.
The legacy of this holiday is All Saints’ Day celebrated on 1st November.
The roots of this tradition are in Slavonic’s duffer celebrated in the eve of this holiday.
And they relate directly to Scandinavian and Celtic traditions.
So that Otolas just like Westa is the guardian of hearth.
Let it always burned for you bright and equal flame.
