Ehwaz Medicine for this Full Moon (April 2020)

In order to welcome another, one can’t be at war within the self.
Life is full of challenges and, as unpleasant as they are, they often are necessary for #change, growth and, in time, deep #healing.
Because the lessons that are learned through flesh, heart and mind are life time lessons that, once fully digested and understood for the wise teachings that they are, can lead to happiness as long as one is able to see the bigger picture, the unfolding pattern.
Clues are being given at all times, it’s up to the self to acknowledge them & understand them.
#guidance comes from being in tune with the #higherself. The other can sometimes show what the self can’t see or doesn’t want to know.
To welcome the other is to accept a different vision, a different point of view. The gift of newness is a fresh breeze and, ultimately, the #medicine of the other is companionship in mind, body & spirit.

Full Moon in Hagalaz

This #full moon in #hagalaz
Is shedding light
On the necessity
To journey downwards
And meet the #dark goddess
As part of
The #alchemical process
Of #nigredo,
Which will continue
With #nauthiz and #isa
Until we are ready
To re-emerge with #eihwaz.
This is a #purification process
Of #releasing and #letting go
Of what is outdated
And no longer serves us.
As such,
It must be done
In full #consciousness
In Mind, Body, and Spirit.
What is shredded,
All that Lead,
Is the spiritual compost
That will later serve
As fertile ground
For our #rebirth.

Full Moon Medicine – Personal Runic Talisman (September 2017)

A few days ago, during the Full Moon (in Pisces/Raido), I drew 5 Runes while asking for what needed to be my current medicine. I was delighted to find out that these Runes were all positive ones: Mannaz, Wunjo, Teiwaz, Dagaz & Sowelo.

I combined them all into a bindrune and painted it on a piece of faux leather in order to wear my talisman as a brooch.

Sept2017 FM Runic Talisman

As for what the meaning is, my interpretation is the following: being true to myself will allow me to reach my goal(s) while being aligned both with my spiritual purpose in this life on Earth (my legacy to the Human Community at large) and the grand cosmic order of things. This will bring a shift, the lifting of a weight from my shoulders that will lead to success, joy & happiness…Sounds good to me 😉

I drew the Rune on a piece of faux leather (I think I’d get a nicer result with acrylic paint than sharpies) that I’ve sewn by hand.

I plan to offer Personalized New Moon and Full Moon Runic Talismans on my Etsy Shop soon. I will draw some Runes, create a custom bindrune and its interpretation upon request, and will send the design in pdf for you to craft in the material of your choice. I’ll keep you posted…

Rhodochrosite and Sapphire Gemstone Essence to Deal with Karmic Issues

I’ve made flower essences before (though I don’t just use flowers, it find this to be too restrictive) but I hadn’t made crystal or gemstone essences until yesterday…Probably because I’m more of a herb lady. I won’t go through my path and personal evolution again but I have become quite enamored with vibrational remedies and esoteric herbalism. Plants can heal body, mind, heart, and soul but the way of preparing them will depend on the uses and expected results. I guess I’ve already done all the physical self-healing that I could and mostly through nutrition. But I’m digressing…

Yesterday was the Full Moon in Capricorn and in Fehu. Since I’m setting up on a new adventure, I figured that it was the right time to finally prepare this gemstone essence. I had everything already: stones, water, bottles, brandy. A few months ago I came to the realization that the major element (in this case a person) that was holding me back in life and preventing me from flying free and fulfill my purpose was stemming from karmic entanglement.

I’ve done a huge transformational work over the past few years in order to ditch my inner lead and turn it into gold. Two things have helped me a lot: vibrational remedies (plant and gemstone essences) as well as my beloved Runes, which have taught me a lot – reason why it is now time for me to share and teach what I know.

Now back to the gemstone essence: I picked rhodochrosite and sapphire (a Virgoan stone) because they could possibly do what Runes and plants can’t do for me in dealing with karmic issues specific to me. Since I don’t know the chemical composition of these 2 stones and whether or not they leach toxic compounds once in contact with water, I chose to go with indirect exposure by placing the stone in a glass container within the water container. The essence was exposed both to the Sun and the Moon and I could tell that it was quite potent just by holding the container.

What are Rhodochrosite’s benefits? According to Nicholas Pearson:

“Rhodochrosite brings freedom of spirit to its owner. Fine, gemmy pieces of rhodochrosite display an orangey, red-to-pink color that vitalizes the energy field enough to break free from restricting patterns. It brings joy, freedom, and mirth when used in crystal healing, and it helps to nourish and encourage the inner child…It eases the emotional side of the karmic pattern, thereby making it easier to let go and move on…”.

There’s more, of course, I only mentioned the part that interests me here.

As for Blue Sapphire, Elizabeth E. Botchis wrote a rather long chapter about it in her book “Awakening the Holographic Human”:

“Blue Sapphire resonates with the throat chakra. It assists the throat chakra to open up to the infinite void of space and the eternal rhythms of time. It supports the throat chakra to transcend boundaries and yet communicate and define space and time relative to the development of one’s individual consciousness.

Sapphire also resonates with the planetary frequencies of Saturn. It is a slow, steady, powerful planetary influence that carries the authority of ancient wisdom. The gem cultivates the virtues of compassion, selfless service, maturity, accountability, and loyalty. Blue Sapphire reinforces the Saturnian influence that guides one to see the unifying and potent truth in practical reality. It opens the channel of communication for the heart to find its voice and purpose through the throat.

Blue Sapphire attunes a person to his or her inner mystical nature and encourages perseverance to accomplish one’s goals. The gem activates the inner gifts of the soul and supports the manifestation and expression of the individual’s soul attributes. The gem assists in grounding one’s personal and cosmic talents in a practical manner that will yield a deep sense of satisfaction. Blue Sapphire cultivates a steady and constructive disposition that authenticates one’s commitment to dharma, or purpose…”

Needless to say that I highly recommend her book and I have high hopes about this homemade essence. Changes with vibrational remedies are often subtle but they occur daily so using this essence will probably have an impact on my work (intuitive and practical) in the weeks to come.
