– Is it possible to work with runes without being initiated by the gods, and is it enough to give them offerings after using the staves? Is it possible to interact with Odin and Freya at the same time?
– I will answer the last question immediately – yes, it is possible. These are gods of the same pantheon, and there are absolutely no obstacles in terms of interacting with them simultaneously. As to working with runes without initiation to the gods, it is, indeed, possible. You are establishing personal contacts. And it doesn’t matter who will initiate you: me, some other mage, or the gods themselves. If the gods deem you worthy, they will initiate you, integrate you, and teach you everything themselves.
