Following the Runic Calendar, this Guided Meditation is Active & Experiential (unlike Traditional Meditation). Algiz is the Rune of Guidance & Protection, which are the aspects focused on here. Since this Meditation is pre-recorded, and therefore not interactive, I invite my Listeners to play & pause this Recording a few times or as necessary.
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.
Today we are entering the Runic Month of Algiz.
Perthro allowed chances and opportunities for exploration & possibilities under the law of Free Will (and the good will of the Norns). Now Algiz calls for wise choices to be made under the guidance & tutelage of Higher Consciousness, clearing the path with a healthy amount of Asgardian protection.
So that one can find his/her way forward and stay the course.
Rosemary is a wonderful herbal ally during winter time. It’s a warming herb that stimulates blood circulation among other medicinal properties.
Rosemary also helps with focus and mental clarity. As an herb of remembrance, it helps to tap into buried memories (great for past life or ancestral work).
Last but not least, it helps clear negative energy.
From a Runic Healing standpoint and generally speaking, I associate rosemary with the rune Raidho on a physical level, the rune Dagaz on a psychological level and the rune Algiz on a spiritual level.
Decks used: the Runic Magic Cards, the Moon Deck & the Slow Holler Tarot
Continuing on the path of manifestation of your heart’s desire & grand vision, the First Quarter of the Moon is taking your dream to awareness, from the unconscious to the conscious mind. Now things are starting to take form, and challenges & unforeseen things might arise but don’t worry: this is as much part of refining your vision as it is to really get you committed to it. Time to start walking the talk…If you haven’t done so already!
Reiterate your wishes: vocalize them, re-visualize them, re-imagine them and let all these thoughts vibrate within your core. Does that feel real and tangible? Then keep going, you’re already halfway through. Look at the current Moon phase: there is a perfect balance between yin & yang. Just as you should find balance within yourself: your thoughts & actions, your ‘dreamtime’ and your active time, your positive mindset & dealing with the inner critic (the trickster who likes to sabotage everything). The challenges you might encounter are also part of finding that equilibrium.
The Moon is in Leo, which will give you a little boost of confidence and extra fuel to feed your passion. Yes, things can actually happen for real! Challenges don’t have to be viewed as negative things when they dealt with creative solutions (which can actually be beneficial). At this point in Lunar time, the sky is the limit! Literally…
We are still in the Runic month of Mannaz(this weekend we will be entering Laguz, and things will probably feel a little different) which supports your highest purpose as it benefits the whole community, and fulfills your Wyrd at the same time. The presence of the Rune Algiz in this reading is highly beneficial: you are guided & protected in your endeavor. Problems won’t be pitfalls! Algiz has its arms extended to the Heavens, drawing down inspiration, blessings & protection. Sounds good to me!
The Ace of Vessels takes things one step further: it indicates deeply felt creativity & intuition. “The Ace conjures the full richness of our internal world, the innermost depths of our heart of hearts in which we can be fully ourselves” (Slow Holler).
What this all means is that you already have everything you need inside & outside, as the Universe is supporting you & your vision, as well as giving you the means to make things happen. Plus, you are protected. What else can you ask for?
So keep working, keep dreaming & keep visualizing. Behind the scene, things are slowly materializing from etheric pixie dust to tangible matter. So be patient & be good to yourself.
Now keep in mind that this is a general trend.If you are interested in a private reading instead (in person, via email or via Skype), feel free to drop me an email at email@example.com. I will be listing Divination Readings on my Etsy Shop within the next few days, including a personalized Moon & Rune Reading.
On Sunday, I will be hosting a Full Moon Rune Gathering, at sunset. Head over to Meetup.com if you wish to join us…
