Rune of the Day, Jan 27, Stand in the place where you live

If you are feeling defensive and the all the world is against you, it is because you are in denial. Time for a reality check. So life isn’t what you thought it should be, but it is what it is and there are a lot of great things happening. But just because it doesn’t look exactly the way you wanted it do doesn’t mean you aren’t going in the right direction. By denying the imperfections you are blocking out the magic and goodness that is trying to come your way. Take an honest look at your life and claim everything, the good and the bad. Knowing exactly where you are is the first step towards spiritual and emotional growth. If you don’t know what is really going on, you have no idea what direction to go in next. Making lists works for some people, others may want to have a very close friend give them the reality check, others may wish to seek the advice of a reader. It doesn’t matter which method you choose, it is time to take stock of your life and you dreams. Who is it that you wanted to be by now? Have your goals changed because you no longer want what you wanted then or because someone told you couldn’t? The further you stray from your true path, the rougher life gets. So if you want smooth sailing, find where you are and spot that small trail that leads you back to your true self.

Rune of the Day, Dec 5, all in all you’re just another brick in the wall

Are you a little bit defensive about something today? Yes, there are times when averting can be a good thing, but putting up blocks does a huge disservice to all parties involved. The root of defensive behavior is really denial. It is easier to block out than to deal with the situation, but honestly the twinge of discomfort that comes with dealing with the situation is a lot less than the pain that comes from delaying and letting it grow into a much bigger problem. So figure out what it is that you are denying about yourself and you will be able to deal with the situation openly and it will go a lot smoother.
