Episode #4: Sowelu New Moon Guided Meditation

For this New Moon in Sowelu, I guide you through a Movement Meditation with a strong emphasis on Creative Visualisation. Sowelu is a very solar Rune and working with it can help recharge us energetically during this transition from Winter to Spring. I also briefly discuss pathworking and healing work by comparing Sowelu to the Runes Teiwaz and Jera, which I talked about in previous episodes.

Runic Self Mastery: the Gifts & Lessons from Vanaheim

Today, we’re discussing #vanaheim,
The Realm of the Earthly Gods.
The ones that most people relate to
Because they are closer to them, their everyday life, needs & struggles.
Looking at the broader picture, the #vanir represent #earth consciousness
Yet their #energy and #magic differ greatly from the Green #consciousness and #natural magic of the Light Elves (see post on #ljosalfheim), due to their closeness to Mankind.
The Earthly plane is where thoughts, ideas, words & dreams take shape and manifest into tangible, physical form.
Hence the necessity to be aware and control one’s own thought processes as a step toward personal responsibility and #self mastery.

Ansuz vs Mercury Retrograde

First #mercury retrograde of the year!
If you’re a Gemini or a Virgo,
Chances are you’ll be more affected than others.
Working with the Rune #ansuz can help you choose your words wisely and avoid miscommunications & misunderstandings (which could easily take things out of proportions).

On Spirituality as a Battlefield…

“Silently tuning in to the rhythm of the #seasons…Is the felt connection to the natural world as it continually changes; a way of learning to move with it, and celebrate it as the dance of transience in the moving mandala called #nature.
[…]
In the #celtic tradition, #spirituality can be portrayed as a battlefield where danger is inevitable: the poison of arrogance, the trap of doubt, the ambush of hope and the arrow of uncertainty.
Yet the enemy, in this case, is the ego and its projections. The greatest ‘weapon’ against it, is radical openness.
[…]
Seeing the world from somewhere beyond it, beyond transience, we can sally forth into the battlefield as enlightened warriors, raised above the fray.
Or we can continue to remain unconvinced, projecting our own #shadow onto everything, and keep each other in chains.”

Aindriu Peers / Shamanic Druidry (the Order of the Longing Look)

Runic Self Mastery: the Gifts & Lessons from Muspelheim

Continuing on our ‘Runic #selfmastery‘ mini series,
Today we’re on a field trip to #muspelheim.
So put some sunscreen on
And bring your sunglasses
Because it’s hot and bright over there!
Muspelheim is one of the two
#primordial Realms (with #niflheim,
Of which I’ll speak next week)
That gave birth to our own #midgard.
This is where the Fire #thurses dwell.
They have their own Realm and their own rules.
And, as most citizens of the #nineworlds,
They can cross dimensions
And come bring chaos & confusion here.
This is the reason why
They need to be kept in check and bound
By #thor and his #thurisaz Rune (Also known as #thurs Rune)
Every once in a while.
Fiery Muspelheim is where
The Creative Unconscious runs wild…
It’s the realm of #imagination, creativity,
#potential and possibilities.
It’s where artists & word weavers
Can and will find #inspiration and/or
The fuel to feed their own inner flame.
Yet the #fire of inspiration can be
As consuming as the fire of passion.
Beware not to get burnt!

I’ll discuss this in more detail (and instructions) in my upcoming Rune Zines.
