I know it’s been several months since I last posted something here. Being in a transition between places is never fun. But I had plenty of time to ponder on the next step of my work. Now that I’m settled, things are slowly but surely coming together.
Plus I feel at home here, in the Pacific Northwest. The climate, flora & fauna reminds me of France. Where I live I’m surrounded by trees (and I’ve always loved conifers) and I’m amazed to see that most of the plants & weeds that grow here are exactly what people need to support & heal themselves (Fireweed is just an amazing plant).
Now, how does that weave in with my Runes? Being at the right place at the right time plays a big role in what I’m currently working on. No distractions, no interactions that lead nowhere…My energy is held within to grow & expand rather than spread out and wasted. I’m in direct contact with the land, which both feeds & replenishes me physically, emotionally, mentally & spiritually.
I know I had talked before about teaching what I know and was looking for the right way to do so, combining my knowledge & experience in shamanism, folk herbalism & Runes. And I decided to create a series of self-published Rune zines (one per Rune) in which I can freely share all that.
Many books have been written about the Runes and there’s a lot of free online resources as well. And I’m not here to rehash the old stuff or to reinvent the wheel. That doesn’t interest me.
I believe we all hold within the keys for our own development, unfolding & fulfillment as we were all born intuitive and we still are (believe it or not) connected to Nature & the Spirit World.
I’m just an enabler, a facilitator providing tools & clues for others to reconnect with the 9 worlds, awaken & tap into inner resources so that they can go on their own journey and find their answers.
It’s all about self-development & empowerment through personal experience and gnosis. Among all the things I say, you can take what you need & what resonates with you (and leave the rest). You can pick & add a thing or two into your spiritual practice or start a new one. This is your ‘chess game’, you set the rules. I only provide the board & the chess pieces for you to play with.
The first issue of the Rune Zine is currently being written & put together. It is about the Rune Ansuz and the zine will be released soon.
This blog will be slowly but surely upgraded into a website in order to upload and sell the zines (which will be in pdf format for practical reasons). They are part of a much greater vision as they will be the stepping stones of a series of books (which will hold even more content) but that will take me a few years.
Dear Reader, be aware that this project is very important to me. It’s been in the Ether for the past 10 years. I’ve been dreaming of it and now I’m putting all my knowledge, heart & soul in it in order to help others on their journey here, in midgard.
I will soon talk about the content of this first issue. Meanwhile I invite you to follow me on Instagram (where most of the action is happening) and/or Facebook if you haven’t done so already.
