Rune For A Monday

 

Since last evening, I have had a small voice within nudging me to seek the Runes for today’s post. So, as with all messages, I heed the call and gather the Rune stones and “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum to see what wisdom they are to impart to us today. And the Rune that comes to my hand is:

Algiz

Algiz:  “Protection, Sedge or Rushes”

Message (paraphrased):   “Control of the emotions is at the issue here. During times of transition, shifts in life course and accelerated self-change, it is important not to collapse yourself into your emotions – the highs as well as the lows. New opportunities and challenges are typical of this Rune. And with them will come trespasses and unwanted influences.

Algiz serves as a mirror for the Spiritual Warrior, the one whose battle is always with the Self. The protection of the Warrior is like the warning rustle of the sedge grass, which serves to keep open space around you. Remain mindful that timely action and correct conduct are the only true protection. If you find yourself feeling pain, observe the pain, stay with it. Don’t try to pull the veil down and escape from life by denying what is happening. You will progress; knowing that is your protection.”

Algiz Warrior

from The Desk of MarDrag:

“Control of the emotions”…not always an easy thing to accomplish. With all the movement in our lives these days…transitions, change, self-growth, world upset and change, great successes or great disappointments…emotions erupt, whether good or bad. It seems the energy has accelerated, time has sped up.

It is a lot to handle.

What Algiz is telling us here is…strive for Balance, daily. It may sound easier said than done, but it is the very thing that will cradle us and carry us forward. Taking care of the Self is one of the most important things necessary to our quality of life in the current chaos. We must Protect ourselves by paying close attention to what our Soul and Higher Self tell us about right action.

Algiz Protection

An animal standing in a field listens for the rustle of the sedge grass or rushes to alert him of something or someone approaching. He will then have a moment to sense if there is danger or if he is safe. Use your senses as Protection and keep that clear space around you so you can have time to assess what is happening in your life and make better choices.

Do not shy away or hide. Now is the time to step into your life, being fully present, and face what is happening…with the knowledge that, as a Spiritual Warrior, you have all that you need to progress. Be Brave and Seek Balance.

Blessings!
