Mastering Isa – Day 2: Hagalaz in Asgard

Mastering ISA Day2

As we continue our journey to master the Rune Isa, we find ourselves in Asgard encountering the Rune Hagalaz.

This is the continuity of the work started in Vanaheim with the Rune Teiwaz/Tyr.

Here Hagalaz demands a serious reassessment of your belief system and your moral values. A purification of sorts and a rebirth as the true you (re) emerges.

I have prepared a shamanic journey / guided meditation with Hela regarding this aspect of the mastery of Isa as part of the ISA chapter of my runic curriculum (which should be available around mid-December)…

Feel free to spread the love and the word.

More soon…

Entering the Runic Month of ISA

The Month of Isa

The wheel is turning once more and we just entered the runic month of Isa, which is the 3rd of the rough/challenging Runes (2 weeks to go).

This is natural evolution as we have integrated the lessons & challenges from the 2 previous Runes: Hagalaz & Nauthiz.

Deep inner work of transformation and taping into unknown/hidden resources are at work as the ice slowly releases other treasures buried in the unconscious.

More will be revealed soon as we dig into the ice that will lead us to the mastery of Isa in Midgard and the other realms that constitute the Nine Worlds.

The Gifts of Hagalaz

Hagalaz / Hagal (the current Runic Month) brings awareness, challenges, changes, and transformation. It is the Rune of the Underworld Goddess Hel and an open invitation to face your shadows & fears in order to evolve, strengthen and reinvent your self…

The Spiritual Side of Olive Leaves

Wild Olive Leaves

Yesterday I harvested a few branches of olive leaves (we have quite a few wild olive trees in California). If those leaves had been young & tender, I would have saved them for tea. But since it’s almost Fall, I will save them for incense making instead.

After a little research, I discovered that olive leaves are traditionally burnt in Cyprus & Malta as protection against the Evil Eye.

I also read this:

“Olive may be used as a restorative when the mind, body and spirit are all exhausted after spiritual trials. It may also be used to assimilate the transformation of initiation. It allows the centers to open and accept the divine energy, helping the self to achieve inner peace and harmony after the storm.”

From ‘Herbcraft – A Guide to the Shamanic and Ritual Uses of Herbs’ by Anna Franklin & Susan Lavender

The first sentence evokes to me the Olive vibrational remedy which is one of the Bach Remedies.

When Things are About to Change…

Energetic shifts, an increased number of synchronicities, a greater awareness & understanding of the patterns/of what’s going on, mental rewiring & acceptance of what is and of what is about to unfold…It all leads to change. Change is inevitable. Change is good. I welcome & embrace it…
