Today is a rather painful day for me as this is my 40th birthday. It feels like a big slap on my face. Suddenly the numbers don’t make sense as they don’t match the face in the mirror. Suddenly I find myself one step closer to my crone years.
Time flies but where does it go? No one knows. I feel sad. I feel angry. Yet I shouldn’t have the right to complain since I’m alive and well while others have been less fortunate.
I’ve had a strange life (of which I already had an inner knowing as a child somehow) and so far I haven’t met any of the social & societal expectations for my age.
That’s because the Dark Goddess had & still has other plans for me. She marked me in my mother’s womb and brought me back from drowning. It took me some time to understand & acknowledge that I was her priestess & intermediary. I dwell on the threshold, a place where anything and everything is possible.
I found this little guy when hiking yesterday. I have already a little collection of Stone People or ‘Stone Spooks’ as I like to call them.
This one, somehow, stands out. I feel he’s some kind of Ancestor (I’ll have to connect with him to find out more).
I think that I will have to give him a little touch of paint and a proper display.
I’m in the process of creating my own Runic Healing Tradition & Curriculum (based on my personal experience), which combines the Runes (Elder Futhark), European Shamanism, and Folk Herbalism.
Runes have once been used for healing but the tradition was orally transmitted and has been mostly lost. My hope & dream is to be able to bring this Tradition back, and that my work can help and empower others.
I’m a strong proponent of Self-Healing via Knowledge, Intuition, Practice & Self-Mastery, which can be achieved with the help of the Runes.
As I am moving forward and starting to give life to my projects & dreams, I think it would be more appropriate the switch my blog’s name from “Ancient Awareness” to “Ancient Healing Arts”. It’s the name I use on every other social media as well as my Etsy shop’s name. I also think that it is a more accurate depiction of my work.
Yesterday’s metaphysical fair didn’t go as well as I was hoping for. I initially didn’t want to go but I kept picking the Rune Hagalaz so I knew that something would happen there, and whether it would be good or bad, it was something that I needed to see and experience.
So I got the confirmation that it was indeed the last time I participate in the Metaphysical Meetup organized by the Garden of Grace. My energy just doesn’t align with everybody else’s, otherwise, I would have been offered to teach a workshop or do regular readings there a long time ago. They just wanted to have me because they don’t have too many psychic readers and nobody seems to do the Runes around here.
I did have some clients, some of which were returning clients from the previous years. I’ve honed my skills and I know I’m a gifted reader as I’m always right on target. But you see I’m the real deal and most people aren’t. I strive for knowledge, depth & authenticity while people there are like butterflies moving from one fad to another, thinking highly of themselves as advanced spiritual beings when in fact, they barely scratch the surface (and you can tell when you talk to them).
There is a reason why California is called Lalaland: people live in their own world where everything is nice and beautiful, but they rarely reach the ground or look in the mirror. The fact that some people can live their entire lives like that is mind-boggling to me, and quite frankly this energy is getting really tiring for me. I’m starting to think that at one point or another I will have to move out of California and head somewhere else, maybe up North. I don’t know yet.
I think the conclusion of all this is that I need to focus on my own tradition and make this happen once and for all. I’m just gonna shut myself from the “Disney” world and get to the core of the matter (which is what matters to me).
And this is, in essence, the message that I got today: Become the Art

This is the #message that I got today. It's about embodying one's #path and #purpose, merging with it to become #one. It's a #core realignment. Talking, #teaching, #sharing is all good but at one point one must go past the #experience to #become the experience. I do realize how #weird and #abstract it may sound, but some will #chime with it. Maybe this is what #mysticism is about… #metaphysical #spiritual #soulrefinement #innerwork #inneralchemy #transformation #shamanism #pagansofinstagram #shamansofinstagram #soulwork
