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, Feb 4, I’ve got my arms, my hands, my fingers

It is time to let go. Yes, there are times to hold back and control yourself but maybe you have been holding yourself on too tight of a leash. What good is your restrain doing you when you see the opportunities pass you by because you are stopping yourself from reaching out and taking them? Start you cleansing small, like by cleaning up one area of the house. Once you can let go of one thing, find another that no longer serves you and keep going until you feel your space open up and become lighter. Look to your emotional house too. Are there grudges that you are still holding? Are you still upset with someone for something that happened a long time ago? Let it all go and live in the now. The less of your past that you carry with you the clearer the future becomes. How can you reach for your dream when you are clinging to your fear of repeating past hurts with both hands?
