I’m getting closer to completion with this first issue of the Zine. Though I must admit that it took longer than I expected. It was not so much about defining the content than getting to explain everything in details (you don’t think about it when you just do things) that took a long time.
And, of course, there were the unexpected setbacks and technical difficulties but, overall, I am fairly satisfied with what I produced and things can & will only improve (refine, always refine) with the next few issues.
I still have to work on the website (something I have to learn from scratch). I have decided that I didn’t want to have to call somebody each time there was a technical issue or go through an Etsy type of platform (which I have done for years) as they usually become greedy as they get bigger.
Everything will be managed here and by yours truly. I thank you in advance for your patience & understanding.
As citizens of the Nine Worlds,
Trolls are real.
They are energies
Of chaos and destruction.
As such, they can take many forms.
They can take the shape of
An annoying neighbor,
A pesky colleague,
A toxic partner/spouse…
Do not give them your attention.
Do not feed them energetically.
Do not let them
Step on your boundaries either,
Because once you do so
You give them the freedom
To wreak havoc
In your life.
During your lifetime, you will be shattered again and again in mind, body, heart & spirit.
The reason for this is that the old, outdated self needs to die for the new self to emerge.
This is spiritual evolution at work.
Do not fear the unknown, embrace it instead.
Because the void is a place of power, where anything and everything is possible.
Know that during that challenging time you are under the care of the Dark Goddess and that you will be fine.
Do not fear Hagalaz, the storm shall pass and you will stand anew.
*Expect some changes to happen to this page within the next few weeks: new logo, new name, new direction… Stay tuned! 🙂 *
Funny what you can get when you request some extra protection. I drew the Runic protection charm ALU ULA on the shell this time.
The egg felt much heavier today. And my health has improved drastically.
I can tell that a lot of clearing has been done due to the large amount of upward strings all connected to tiny bubbles. And still larger bubbles on the rim.
No traces of blood either, meaning that the negative energy/influence has been neutralized.
As I know that my cold was a direct result from being set off balance, I decided to do a shamanicegg cleansing, which I always find to be effective and accurate.
I drew my healingbindrune on the shell and placed the egg under my bed overnight. I do feel better this morning.
But the fun part, to me, is the actual reading of the egg. It’s spot on, as usual.
The strings going upward indicate that quite a bit of negative energy has been removed and the large bubbles on the rim are a sign of strong spiritual protection (for which I have always been grateful). As is the cloud surrounding the yolk (which represents the self).
Now there is a small balloon next to the yolk (a recurring feature with me) on top of which there is a tiny blood spot indicating feeling a tidbit trapped and under the influence of a negative/evil person. The slight webbing in the vicinity is a sign of jealousy.
The result of this egg reading doesn’t surprise me at all… I’ll do another cleansing or 2 for good measure and maybe draw ALU (Ansuz-Laguz-Uruz) on the egg this time.
I usually have a rather strong immune system but the recent trip from CA to WA has thrown me off balance. Now I’m having to fight off a chest cold.
I have all the herbs that I need to keep things under control.
But one of the tools in my arsenal is using runes for healing.
So I designed a bindrune that I drew on my chest in order to speed up the healing process (in conjunction with matching Galdr).
This bindrune is a combination of Teiwaz/Tyr, Uruz and Ansuz:
Teiwaz to strengthen the immune system and target the origin of the problem.
Uruz to speed up the healing process and regain some strength.
Ansuz is more specific to the throat, lungs & the upper respiratory tract.
Just like a healthy mind requires a healthy body, a strong mind needs a strong body in order to thrive.
To make dreams, vision and will come true and manifest in the physical world, one needs to go beyond mastering thought forms.
This is where self-mastery kicks in. He/she who masters the self can master his/her world. But the world is a physical place. The body can either be just an exploratory and sensory vehicle to navigate through it OR the tool and extension of the mind to turn your inner world into your outer world.
A poor state of health can only produce a weak body which then creates a confused & weak mind.
How can one pursue one’s dreams, face the hardships of life and/or give birth to the life that one wants in such a state?
The one who masters him/herself goes beyond the simple knowing of the self. He/she has a strong mind resting on the shoulders of a strong & healthy body with all the stamina needed & required to master his/her life.
The seasons pass, the body adapts.
The student learns, the master thrives.
I enjoy making Runic Essences on New Moons and Full Moons (which will find their way to my upcoming website).
They do help attune energetically with a specific Rune (especially if, like me, you follow the Runic calendar) and its various applications both for healing and spiritual purposes. They can also be blended together if needed.
As a High Vibration plant, Sage – herb of wisdom – is associated with Algiz (protection & clearing).
From a medicinal perspective, Sage works on the throat (throat chakra included) and thus is Ansuz medicine as well.
The Seeker who is engaged with the Spirit of Sage can therefore not speak garbage or lies without offending the plant spirit. Every choice has its consequences.
