#evolution is part of everybody’s #spiritual path and #spiritual work. And while #selfmastery is important to me, it’s only the tip of the iceberg or the root of the tree… I do what I do out of purpose and passion, whether it’s traditional or not is completely irrelevant because I’m creating my own tradition. So the ‘Runic Self Mastery’ part of the ‘Book of #ansuz‘ is written & done. I’m now moving on to the writing of the Intermediate Level, which will allow to do some actual #healing work in #midgard, connecting the Above with the Below: #asgard with #helheim. But just like a tree can’t grow or thrive without a strong root system, you can’t move on to the intermediate stuff while having skipped the foundations… I’ll talk more about this soon.
The 4th issue of the #newsletter Has been sent out to subscribers (Check your emails, guys). This time, we are exploring #muspelheim And pondering on the multifaceted #fire element. And of course, I break down The #fire code for you, runically speaking. If you wish to subscribe to the Newsletter, The link is below.
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.
You’ve been tried and tested by the 3 ‘rough runes’: Hagalaz, Nauthiz, and Isa, in order for the outdated self to die and the new you (in alignment with your core self, your essence) to be revealed.
With the end of a cycle, a new one can now begin with Jera.
As the end of the calendrical year is drawing near, this rune asks you to reflect on all the things that have happened to you internally and externally. Ponder on your personal harvest, draw your conclusions and move on. Prepare yourself for the new year to come, set your intentions and release them throughout the Nine Worlds.
For those of you who are going through troubled times, know & have faith that this will pass.
According to some sources, this day marks the historicalWinter Solstice. The sun is to be reborn and Sunna‘s medicine brings light in the dark, hope and healing.
‘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).
When you follow the runic calendar, the end of the year contains the most challenging Runes. The runic month of Hagalaz just ended (it started around Samhain) and now it’s the turn of Nauthiz (the next will be Isa). It can be an overwhelming time especially when the days are short and the weather cold. A sense of loneliness may also creep in… This Full Moon gathering will aim at keeping your spirit high and finding solutions from personal exploration & experience.
