Today we are entering the Runic month of Eihwaz. We have digested (Jera) and integrated the lessons learned from the ice in order to refine the self (Isa).
As the days are slowly getting longer, we too are ready to birth ourselves anew and reconnect with the physical world.
This time the I finds itself both grounded/anchored in the ancestralearth (Helheim) and connected to the higher realms of consciousness (Asgard).
Eihwaz is the embodiment of the Yggdrasil, the cosmic tree. The cycle of life, death, and rebirth applies to the self over and over during one’s physical lifetime. This is both evolution and revolution. So welcome the new year as well as the new you/yew… Everything is possible.
“All of this means that you will stand outside of the world of men and have to create your own web of dreams. This is always the loneliest way, and sometimes the saddest, when, from this perspective, we more clearly see the world and the sorrows that people carry.”
‘The deeply transformative experience of Hagalaz that shook us to our core in order to reveal our strong foundations was followed by Nauthiz with which we learned to overcome our fears and tap into hidden resources and abilities we weren’t aware we possessed.
Now we need to master the 3rd of the rough Runes: Isa.
As much as we learned from the previous 2 Runes, there are still things that we need to incorporate and digest before we can move on with the rune Jera(the next Runic month).
Isa, the ice is about patience and full awareness of the self…Here we are focusing on the Teiwaz aspect in Vanaheim, which is an open invitation to rise above the mundane and elevate oneself energetically, mentally & spiritually (among other things). ‘
I’ll be discussing Isa more in-depth and how to master it in balance and harmony with the 8 other worlds in the ISA chapter of my Runic Curriculum(which should be available around December 15th). I will also include a Teiwaz-specific guided meditation / shamanic journey to help you incorporate that aspect in your mastery of the Rune Isa.
The Runes are much more than a spiritual path (which reveals itself to the seeker), they’re also a philosophy of life. But we need to be aware that our thoughts and actions in Midgard affect the 8 other worlds as well(since we are part of a multiverse).
Therefore, in order to master a specific rune in Midgard, we need to be conscious that a harmonious equilibrium needs to be reached with the 8 other worlds.
Within the course next 9 days, I’ll be sharing some of the information needed to achieve this balance with the rune ISA (which is the current runic month).
More in-depth information will be made available in the ISA chapter of the runic curriculum I’m working on (I hope to have it online by mid-December), which will include a fair amount of inner work with guided meditations/ shamanic journeys, ritual teas and botanical incense blends.
Stay tuned…(And eventually, follow me on Instagram).
