Weekly Rune Podcast on Anchor.fm

I’ve decided to host
A weekly audio #podcast
On anchor.fm, which will
Make it available on most audio platforms.
The podcasts will be recorded
In place of the weekly #readings
And of course, I will also cover
Other relevant topics
Such as the #runiccalendar,
#selfmastery and #inneralchemy to name a few.
So I’ll be writing less, talking more and answering questions as well ;).
Here’s the link to the podcast:

Runic Self Mastery: the Gifts & Lessons from Myrkheim

Today I’d like to talk about #myrkheim,
Also known as #nidavellir,
Home of the #dwarves.
They are to me very different
From the Dark Elves (of which I spoke last week), this is why I wanted to make a distinction.
It’s not a matter of appearance,
Because as French medievalist Claude Lecouteux pointed out
The #wights appear in the guise
Of their own choosing
To those they appear to.
And the Dwarves, while having
A strong #telluric & #chthonic energy
Are very different from the Dark Elves.
They are master craftsmen:
They mine raw materials from the Earth
And create splendid weapons
And pieces of jewelry for Gods & Heroes.
But they do share with the Svarts
The #knowledge of Magic & Enchantments.
To me, the Dwarves represent
The embodiment of #self mastery:
Starting with conceptual thoughts
And through #focus, discipline and work,
They manage to create something refined
Out of nothing.
And I admire them for that.

New Moon in Perthro Runic Meditation

This #new moon in #perthro
Is an auspicious time
Filled with magic & mystery.
A time of new possibilities
For those who are willing
To take matters in their own hands
And not be a victim of circumstances.
The #norns are willing
To reveal their secrets
To Seekers & Co-Creators.
Do you let the winds of #fate
Carry you around throughout life?
Or are you in charge of
Your own #wyrd, your Destiny?
On this New Moon,
Ask yourself if you are doing everything
That needs to be done to live
A meaningful & fulfilling life?
In silence, all is revealed,
So let the Norns speak…

This Week's Reading with Inguz (Runic Month of Perthro)

This week’s #reading
Is about the Rune #inguz.
As the glyph suggests,
A portal of possibilities opens up
In front of our very eyes.
Being currently
In the Runic month of #perthro,
This is especially auspicious.
So take the necessary actions
To make your dreams, projects,
Matters of the heart
Or other important matters come true.
And roll the dice of #fate
Through the Gateway of #ingwaz,
Then watch the ripples
As things begin to grow,
Manifest,
Unfold
And bloom in the physical reality.

Runic Self Mastery: the Gifts & Lessons from Svartalfheim

After last week’s trip to #helheim,
We are now heading to #svartalfheim,
The Realm of the Dark #elves
(And I purposely will make
A distinction with the #dwarves
Of which I’ll speak next week).
Their attributes are both similar
And opposite to those of
The Light Elves from #ljosalfheim
(See post on the topic).
They are the ones of
The #unseelie Court among
The #celtic #sidhe.
They dwell on the dark side
Of the psychic & emotional
Spectrum of the Self.
They represent the #shadow self,
The inner critic/trickster,
The negative and even destructive side
Of one’s personality & individuality.
They can cloud one’s mind
And judgment, leading them
To making poor choices & decisions.
They are the masters of illusion,
Trickery, deception & dark enchantments.
But as challenging as they may be,
They can also be powerful teachers.

This Week's Reading: Isa (Runic Month of Perthro)

This week’s #reading is about #isa.
In the icy #stillness of Winter
When dream seeds have been planted,
We find ourselves alone with the Self
Which always needs to be
Defined, redefined and/or refined.
While we are the living result
Of the love of thousands before us,
While our #ancestors🔥 blood
Flows in our veins,
Their lives & experiences
Coded in our DNA,
We are not them.
Our #path, our choices, our lives
Are ours alone.
#traditions have their place
But the sovereign individual
Can’t allow him/herself
To be swallowed or defined by these.
How well do you know yourself?
