The 18 Spell Songs of Odin. The Rúnatal is a subsection of the Hávamál that describes Odin’s discovery of the runes.
During this episode, the wisest of the gods Odin sacrifice himself to himself in an attempt to gain a greater knowledge of the cosmos and potentially stave off the approach of Ragnarok.
For nine days and nights, Odin hung on the Yggdrasil, pierced by his own spear. Nine, of course, was no random number to ancient Scandinavian society. It has a significant meaning in the esoteric understanding of the Norse reality, which is revealed in the nine worlds of the cosmos. This number is doubled in the section after the Rúnatal. Stanzas 145 to 14 describe eighteen magical songs that describe eighteen magical runes. These are known as the 18 spell songs of Odin. Through Odin’s ordeal, in very warrior-like language, he “seizes” the runes. This secret alphabet contained the formula for all possible expression. After 9 long days, Odin had successfully obtained the vehicle that could convey magical language. Odin still, however, needed to discover the wisdom that was elusively above it. For this reason, Odin descended into the underworld to the root of the tree of Yggdrasil, so that Odin may obtain what he sought. Odin drank from Mimir’s well and gained what he sought. Numerous gods are mentioned in the source texts such as the hammer-wielding, humanity-protecting thunder-god Thor, who relentlessly fights his foes; the one-eyed, raven-flanked god Odin, who craftily pursues knowledge throughout the worlds and bestowed among humanity the runic alphabet; the beautiful, seiðr-working, feathered cloak-clad goddess Freyja who rides to battle to choose among the slain; the vengeful, skiing goddess Skaði, who prefers the wolf howls of the winter mountains to the seashore; the powerful god Njörðr, who may calm both sea and fire and grant wealth and land; the god Freyr, whose weather and farming associations bring peace and pleasure to humanity; the goddess Iðunn, who keeps apples that grant eternal youthfulness; the mysterious god Heimdallr, who is born of nine mothers, can hear grass grow, has gold teeth, and possesses a resounding horn; the jötunn Loki, who brings tragedy to the gods by engineering the death of the goddess Frigg's beautiful son Baldr; and numerous other deities, watch video for more information on Odin from Norse mythology at mythology explored by ancient mystery on Youtube.
