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, Aug 30, You’re not admitting You should be quitting

Another frustrating day as you may feel boxed in and the way out is not clear. You are still working against your true self. The anger you are feeling at the world is really a manifestation of shame that you have not forgiven yourself and others for. The way out is to look within and find the things that cause you to feel ashamed and to forgive that part of yourself for the mistakes that you made. The shame that you feel from what others have done is also ready to leave your space. Sit down and write a letter to the offenders, be brutally honest, and then set the letter on fire and let it go to god. Once you have learned to forgive others, then go back and forgive yourself for being in a place where you could be shamed for others.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Rune of the day, Nov 10; The Heart of the Matter

Ehwas reversed

“I think it’s about forgiveness…”
The song has been stuck in my head since I pulled the rune out, and it is what today’s rune is about. Bouncing off yesterday’s rune, now that you have faced yourself, it is time to forgive yourself. There have been many times before when you were looking at many options, and maybe you don’t feel you choose wisely. You can do so right now.
