Rune of the Day, Feb 6, I’m afraid there’s no denyin’ I’m just a dandylion

Teiwaz, Isa, Algiz
It takes a lot of courage to heal, to take a hard look at yourself and be honest about the things that you believe about yourself and to recognize the role you have played in creating your own present. You got to where you are now because of the things you believed about yourself and by your reactions to the challenges that you have manifested in your life. Just acknowledging that you are the creator or your life and that you are not a puppet takes courage. Congratulations for getting this far! Accepting this truth may freeze some of you in your tracts. It can easily lead to a pattern of fear based decisions. But know that fears are self-fulfilling, and that fear tries to hurry things along. Patience and good boundaries are needed when fear rears its head. The great thing about boundaries is that they give you the freedom to move within an area unchecked. When you give your fear a time and a place, and give your other emotions times to come out and play, one will not rule over the others. It is not a matter of shutting down fear, just a matter of not living in it. It will take as much space as you give it. Say to yourself “Okay, I am afraid that this thing won’t work out the way I intended”. Say it just once and then let it go. Acknowledging and then releasing emotions lets them have their say in their place. But don’t cling to them or get stuck in a cycle of obsessing about why you feel a certain emotion, this will only lead to layers of more doubt, fear, and anger. Acknowledging and releasing lets all of your natural doubt and worries and slight funks express what they need to say, without trapping you.
