Either way, it’s okay… runes for the week of Aug 13, ’17

Mannaz, Gebo, Inguz

This is definitely going to be a week a deep introspection for nearly all. The focus of our energy is going to be turned inward, to look back at the paths we have chosen and really see how and when we chose each turn that led us here. This can be a brutal revelation for some, with guilt and anger at some of the choices made. Guilt at realizing how we may have hurt others and the things we did to block ourselves will become abundantly clear the next few days.

Once the full weight of how it all really went down hits, take a deep breath and let it go. It was all part of the process of getting you here. There are some hard and uncomfortable lessons that we need to teach ourselves and some of us are a bit more stubborn than others and need things to be a bit more intense in order to learn. So find what it is you learned, thank yourself for the lesson, and forgive yourself for the extra BS you used to get you here. And then say to yourself “I know how to learn my lessons without causing extra pain and drama”

There will also be a huge desire to get away from others a bit this week, especially with all the old resentments coming up all over the place. Your unwillingness to work things out with others could lead to more hurt feelings, so fight your need to hide yourself away and spend time talking things out with your bestie.

Now that you can see the path behind you clearly- it is time to choose where you will go next. All of the choices ahead of you are yours to make. It can feel a bit scary for some to realize that this life is one we chose and that we get to choose how the rest of the story goes. Now it the best time to change your direction and put yourself on a path more in line with what you really want. Or just to make a few simple adjustments to refine your path. It is with a full understanding of your past that you can remake your future.

Walking down this rocky road.. The week in Runes 7/30/17

Othlia, Perth reversed, Uruz

Oh, what a relief from last week! So you made it. Not it is time to walk away from the bullshit. There will be a need release a bit of grief, the beginning of the week will be about purging at the same time  you will be more open and everything will be a bit sensitive this week.  Monday may be a good day to watch a sad movie and curl up with some popcorn, defiantly not a good day to party.  Wednesday on will be a bit better for socializing.  Stay focused on the now. Keep checking in with how you feel now, and what the very next step is. There is a lot of energy swirling around this week as you are still rebuilding and the extra emotional bandwidth is going to take a bit of getting used to. Stay focused on the things that you rock out at – no need to challenge yourself at this point. It’s okay to go for the easy victories are you are just finding your footing and opening yourself up to some amazing surprises down the road.

Getting in tune to the straight and narrow

This week in runes.

Uruz reversed, Sowelu, Wunjo
Much like Dionysus being torn apart by the Titans, we are being ripped open this week and left with just what is in our hearts. You must look deep into your heart and face your truth. Look not at what you were supposed to have become, or at what you think others want from you. What is it that really makes your heart sing? It is time to rebuild ourselves from the heart outward. We have been razed to the ground and it is up to you to rebuild yourself in line with your true purpose, or to just rebuild things exactly how they were before.

So, what is it that you really want? Are you already doing the the work you want to do? If so, what is keeping you from expanding to the next level? Are you with the person you love? Is something keeping you from loving the one you are with? It is time to shut out everyone else for a few days and listen only to your heart, your dreams, and find your soul’s mission. The more you fight your truth, the more you deny your power, the rougher this week is going to be on you. Things will ease up as you tune in to yourself.

The big challenge will be feeling so scattered and ripped apart. There is a good chance that you will be questioning a lot of things. Everything is up in the trying to decide where it will land. Even you are just the goo that will become a butterfly, so just ease into the nothingness and decide what you will be. Faith and speaking your truth will keep worries at bay.

Go easy on yourself this week. There will be a lot of twists and turns as you are being reformed into the amazing person that you already knew was inside waiting to emerge. We will be testing ourselves in some rather creative ways, so buckle up and trust yourself.

Where have all the flowers gone?

mask-1083605_1920

Memorial day has never been about grilling or drinking for me. Every year we would go as a family to the cemetery where there would be a 21 gun salute, Marvin played Taps  (he was my next door neighbor and and former army bugler who taught me how to play it too), In Flanders’s Field was read recited, and then someone sang “Where have the the Flowers gone”.  My sisters and I would gather up the empty shells afterwards to use in crafts. The importance of the event was evident but it wasn’t till much later in life did I realize the gravity of what we were doing there at the cemetery, and I am grateful that I had to wait till I was an adult to really understand how horrible war is, and how much of a rippling affect it can have.  So many you young men have gone away never to return and it has been going on for for too long.  I once had an extremely upsetting experience in a cemetery on the south side of Columbus, Ohio. It was for prisoners of war from the Civil War who had died in captivity. I could feel the fear and  distress of dying so far away from home from every grave I passed. Anyway, I digress.

Death in a war is particularly shocking. The chaos on confusion only adds to the cacophony of emotions that abound in a violent death. Genocide is even more perplexing to the soul- being killed just for existing, and we have had far too many of those if the last century- 16 according to wiki.

Theses are the things I think about on Memorial Day.

And for the past month, in every healing I have done, clients’ ancestors have been coming forward and asking me foe healing. Some are very specific about what they want, either way- I am answering their call.

So this year I am putting together a special event with the Light Sisterz. We will be gathering together to allow our ancestors who died because of war to come forward and receive trauma release and healing. We will also be working with anyone affected by war- those left behind, civilian causalities, the wounded, and anyone else.

The Light Sisterz will open the session with  a meditation to set the tone. Each participant will get one on one time with on of the healers to receive healing for their ancestors and and you the participant. At the end we will circle up and join hands to do a group healing lead by yours truly, where we will ask for the ancestors of our world leaders to come forward, if they choose, and any victims of genocide not related to anyone present who need peace are also welcome to come forward for a release. There will be some meditative activities while you are waiting for your personal session.

The event will be at 1-3:30 pm on Sunday May 28th at The Center SF  in San Francisco.  Tickets are  $30 each and you get them here. Seating is limited in order to make sure each person can have individual attention. It’s going to be an intense and freeing day.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Rune of the day Jan 9, 2015 ‘Cause every hand’s a winner And every hand’s a loser

Sowelu, Perth, Thurisa & Gebo

Give yourself a lot of space today. Most people’s energy will be rather pulled in as we each focus on our own wholeness. For some this will be a new and foreign feeling, but the universe is sending us each a little sample so you can know and grow it.
It can sometimes be easier to have compassion for others than for ourselves. So for today begin to explore what it feels like to have love and compassion for yourself. How much more energy will you have when you stop beating yourself up about not being perfect. When in fact you already are perfect, it is just very difficult for many of us to see it, and sometimes even more difficult to accept, but you can get here. It starts by taking a deep breath and allowing yourself to just be without judging or trying to improve anything.
Just remember that anyone new that you bring into your life today will be at comparable level of compassion and self-love as you.

Early Morning Singing Song

Algiz, Mannaz, Wunjo

Hello boundary issues! If you haven’t already been actively working on creating safe boundaries for yourself (and the benefit of those around you) then your buttons are going to be pushed a bit today. If you have good boundaries or have been actively working on them, they will be tested a bit. This is just a check as most of us really need some time to ourselves right no.
In fact, the other challenge facing all you is the lack of acceptance of your own innocence. For many the attitude looks likes “waiting for the other shoe to drop” or “it can’t be that easy”. Quit creating more shoes and yes, it is possible for life to blessed and easy. It starts with you accepting that is possible for you good and innocent. You may call it being jaded or realistic, throwing extra guilt on yourself for things you haven’t done yet creates openings in your energy and you guessed it, motivates others to push your boundaries. But if you keep calling punishment down on yourself, the universe will provide it.
A quiet mediation is defiantly called for today, and again tomorrow. It is a time to focus on training your body to know what it feels like to have serenity and joy in your life. From there reconnect with your youngest memory of yourself, feel how free and safe you felt then. If, those feelings were not present for you at that time, give them to that version of yourself. Let that version of you know what it feels like to not need forgiveness.

Rune of the Day, Aug 20, Either way it’s okay you wake up with yourself

Ansuz, Mannaz, Uruz reversed

There is a message waiting for you you but it will be coming through a source you least expect. Pay attention to what others have to say to you and about you. There is some truth to the rumors and especially pay attention to what makes you annoyed. You can say “Oh, it is just their issue projecting on me”. But why does it annoy you if there isn’t a part of you that believes it? I am not saying that everything they say is true, just be open to hearing what they have to say and acknowledging that maybe there are things you still need to let go of. Now is not a time to show your strength and brush off negative comments. The message is one of unacknowledged guilt and playing innocent with yourself will only make it harder to move on. It is time to take stock of your vulnerabilities and be grateful for the things you have learned from them and stop beating yourself up for not always being perfect.

Rune of the Day, Aug 19, I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name

Kano, Wunjo, Ehwaz

The clouds seem to have parted and you are left with a new clarity. It is the beginning of a new phase in your life that leaves you feeling rather vulnerable and possibly also a little lost. The things that used to distract you no longer work and you are being forced to look at what parts of you are really important. It is time to start moving again. For a little while, serenity may be a bit elusive as sitting still is not as comfortable as it used to be. There is a need to move and you must follow that urge. Time to get out of town for the day and shift your energy through movement. Even going to the gym will help or taking a walk around the block. The movement will help unblock the last little bits of forgiveness that you need to address. It is time to forgive and move on, and moving your body out of its current local with make things a lot easier.

Rune of the Day, June 14, Can you see the real me?

Kano reversed, Nauthiz, Thurisa reversed

Before you can move forward it is time to accept your true self.The constraints and problems that you are running into lately are because of inauthentic living. If you are feeling a bit claustrophobic it is because your real purpose is trying desperately to get through to you. The things that are no longer working for you are breaking down completely and unless you stop fighting and accept your true path, you will continue to struggle. If you are on your path, things are a bit lighter but there is still a lot of clearing away to be done. You may have to let go of “how” you will get there and focus on the journey alone. There are old relationships that are not working, mostly because everyone is going through this right now, so consider the other person’s struggle with authenticity is raging as well. It is a time to let people do their own thing while you go and do yours. Don’t feel as though they are ignoring you, it is really about them completing their own struggle. Now more than ever:
“If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, its yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never meant to be. – Unknown

Rune of the Day, March 20, I got life sister

Algiz reversed, Mannaz, Fehu reversed

It is spring cleaning time again. Since Sunday most of us have been naturally dropping things that no longer work, but it is time to amplify the energy by physically moving objects out of your space. Physical objects hold a lot of energy and if it reminds you of a time when you were not at your best, it should be sent on its way. Every thing you look at in your home should serve a purpose. Either as just its function or to inspire, challenge, or remind you of joy.

Also be honest with yourself about the company you keep. They say that if you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room. How many of your friends and close associates are people you aspire to be like? Are there any people that you feel you need to apologize for? The signals right now around these issues are ringing louder than they have before. Interactions that are natural and energizing are moving you in the right direction, spend more time with those people. If you are feeling weighed down or are struggling to be understood when you interact with someone, they may no longer be at the same vibration as you. It is time to walk away and reset your boundaries. There is nothing preventing open communication right now outside of who you are being and who the other person is being. If you are both being true to your higher selves, there is no need to repeat, rephrase, and try to force the conversation. If you are taking care of your needs for yourself, your relationships with be based on what you want in life.
