Rune For A Monday ~ Improvement

 

Good Monday Morning! For a couple of days now, I have had a niggling message in the back of my mind to seek a message from the Runes again to start our week. I do love the wisdom in the messages the Runes bring…and am happy to share them with you. As I jumble the stones in their velvet bag, plunge my hand in and choose one…I take to “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum for its meaning. The Rune that has come forward is:

Ehwaz 1

Ehwaz: Movement, Progress, A Horse

Message (paraphrased): “Ehwaz is a Rune of transit, transition and movement; of physical shifts, new dwelling places, new attitudes, or new life. It also signifies movement in the sense of improving or bettering any situation.

There is about this Rune a sense of gradual development and steady progress, with the accompanying notion of slow growth through numerous shifts and changes. This could apply to the growth of a business or to the development of an idea. A relationship also needs to undergo changes and transformations if it is to maintain growth and life. Persevering steadfastness is called for here.

Let it be said this way, “As I cultivate my own nature, all else follows”. The Rune is saying, you have progressed far enough to feel a measure of safety. It is time to turn again and face the future reassured and prepared to share the good fortune that comes. Illuminate all things with your Light.”

Ehwaz 2

from The Desk of MarDrag:

So, there is progress! Whew! For those experiencing difficulties, delays and setbacks…this is a welcome message.

The energy of the past few weeks has been, in short, brutal. We have all had to stretch ourselves to the seeming end…way out of our comfort zones…to handle that energy, and to try to create and draw in solutions and resolutions to the issues that energy has brought with it. This Rune is saying we have made progress…great progress…and we can now turn away from the battle and look back to the future. And we should know that…because of our hard work, diligence, determination, and perseverance…we can reap the benefits of our work now, and look to situations getting better and improving. We made it.

Ehwaz 3Though there may have been unwanted, or many shifts and changes, slow growth produces gradual development…and so sometimes our path calls for patience and steadfastness until the movement comes. And it does, and is always timely. These days, we are wont to have quick remedies, but they do not always come that way, and we must be patient yet steady. Believing all the while that change will, indeed, come for us.

Ehwaz 5Just as the flower begins as a seed, must break through the soil and grow from a scrawny stem…through gradual progress, it gains strength and beauty, and eventually grows into a lovely bloom. But it cannot rush its growth. So too, are we this way.

Cutaway of a seedling growing in dirt, profiled against white,The quote, “As I cultivate my own nature, all else follows”, is a profound statement, and so true. I believe, as we work on ourselves, seek our True Nature and True Life Purpose, and live within our Individual Truth…all things come clear and into form. We do not always “see” what is taking shape, but if we Trust, we know that movement and shaping is happening all the time, and so, we will never be stuck at one place forever. As we cultivate our own natures, all that is meant for us will come to us and come clear.

Ehwaz 7So, take a deep breath! And know progress is upon us…and we are better for it. Look to improvements in your life this week. A welcome change!

Ehwaz 6

Blessings!

  1. PMMMM!…..
    Perfect Monday Morning Mardrag Message!!!!

    As the sun rises over the mountain and floods the ranch, I look out over all the work I’ve been doing to clean up, weed, mow and be ready for the winter weather. It has been several weeks of continuous days of this and that and it seemed never ending. Last week was a week of no propane to heat water as there was a leak that drained the tank (I thought it was a dead skunk under the house) and it was a slow process with several days of work to move the tank (yea, Silver Lining, moved the tank from right in front of the front patio and entrance to the house, to the east and behind a big tree) and dig up and put down a new gas line and bring it all up to code.

    Funny note; when the one of the crew was changing out the old regulator on the tank for the new code, he yelled out to the rest of the crew and me, ‘this regulator was made and installed on this tank in 1947! Another ‘silver lining’ of a challenging situation for sure and bringing more safety to me so easily with out me having to do anything but receive!

    As I look out at the newly manicured yard, the new patio area to create, now that the propane tank is gone (yippee, I’ve wanted it moved for over 16 years!) I now get to use those creative juices as the fun begins designing the new space overlooking the ponds.

    I’ve also been putting in time clearing the house of clutter in between yard work hoping to catch up on everything I had planned for the summer but not able to do to unforeseen illness. I look around and though I’m not near being finished, the light at the end of the tunnel is visible…not close…but visible!

    Quoting your words, “This Rune is saying we have made progress…great progress…and we can now turn away from the battle and look back to the future. And we should know that…because of our hard work, diligence, determination, and perseverance…we can reap the benefits of our work now, and look to situations getting better and improving”!

    Ehwaz-This quote too, “As I cultivate my own nature, all else follows”, is a profound statement, and so true. I believe, as we work on ourselves, seek our True Nature and True Life Purpose, and live within our Individual Truth…all things come clear and into form.” Nailed that Mardrag!

    Although I have some clarity, the form is yet to take place but I’m patient and with your ‘PMMMM’ ( perfect Monday Morning Mardrag Message ) I head into the week rejuvenated, excited, inspired and ready to face the work and challenges that come my way all the while enjoying the ride and so grateful!

    Love you Mardrag and thanks for starting my week off with an Ehwaz!
