Rune of the day Nov 28, The not so cowardly lion

Teiwaz

You already have the courage you need to face the things in your life that are holding you back. It is time to do a little weeding; to pull out and trim back the emotions that no longer serve you and are hindering your growth. You will not be clearing away the brambles with little pruning shears, because this can be a fun exercise. Instead, take out the shiny long sword or jeweled dagger that your warrior self carries and swiftly and easily cut the tendrils wrapping around your ankles that try to slow you down. These tendrils are memories that keep popping up when you are thinking of something else. When this happens, and you say to yourself “why did that just pop into my head?” Take a moment to acknowledge that memory and say “Yes, I know you are here but you belong in the past. I don’t need you anymore, goodbye.” and watch that memory leave your space. Or if you prefer, watch it disappear in a puff of smoke, the color doesn’t matter as long as the visual brings a smile to you face and you know that you are moving on.
