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: 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.”
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.
Though 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.
Just 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.
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.
