Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush and Go With The Flow

 

Flow 1

Hello My Darling Readers! Once again, I must apologize for being away for so long, especially when I thought I would be back in some form of frequency. But, alas, complications have risen and I am now “going round the mulberry bush” of endless doctors appointments and tests and more tests that lead, still, to another surgery I had hoped would be sooner than later. But…I am clinging to the bush and pushing through the brambles…determined that there is a path hiding there somewhere that leads out of this forest. I know there is…and I shall come upon it soon.

So, for inspiration today, I pulled my bag of Runes to my warm hands and plunged in in search of a message to take with us this week. Of course, the Runes in their brilliance, cast the message just as needed.

Take it with you, in your hearts, minds, and souls…and no matter what is dragging you round the mulberry bush this week...trick it…and go with the Flow instead! Wink!

Blessings and Love to you all…and See you Soon!

Laguz: Flow, Water, That Which Conducts (original post 4/21/14)

Message (paraphrased): Unseen powers are active here, creative and fertile powers of Nature. The attributes of this Rune are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of tides and emotions, of careers and relationships. Laguz fulfills our need to immerse ourselves in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the desire for comfort and the satisfaction of emotional needs, to the lunar side of our nature. For, while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward unity and merging.

This Rune often signals a time for cleansing: for revaluing, reorganizing, realigning. A Rune of deep knowing, Laguz may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for self-transformation. Success now lies in contacting your intuitive knowing, in attuning to your own rhythms. A Rune of the Self relating rightly to the Self, Laguz signifies what alchemists called the conjunctio, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after”.

Flow 2

from The Desk of MarDrag:

Go with the Flow. We have all heard that phrase, often! And sometimes it is not as easy as others to follow its advice. But Laguz is telling us today that, no matter what circumstances may look like, go with the Flow of what is happening. There are unseen powers and energies at work around us that help contribute to where our paths take us. It is these forces that are active when we are creating, or working to create something in our lives…a new job, a projects success, manifesting a relationship, maintaining our current path. Our job is to keep to our spiritual work on ourselves, evaluate what we think we really want from life, and stay in touch with our intuition and our own rhythms to help guide us to self-transformation.

The Flow of life is much like the flow of a river…there is a current our lives ride along on our path. The river twists and turns, and sometimes has to find a way over rocks and pebbles and obstacles…but it always trickles through and polishes those rocks until they are smooth and the Flow can resume its natural path.

So, if there are obstacles in the way, go with the Flow, and it will work itself out, naturally. We cannot push the river. It Flows at its own pace, as our lives have their pace too, and we must trust our paths, our rivers, the nature of our Flow, to instinctively know its direction. Sometimes we understand the direction, but sometimes it is not as clear until we reach the bend that takes us in that direction. It is not always possible to understand why things happen the way they do. So, we must Trust our Self and our path…and go with the Flow.

Blessings!

Monday Message ~ Flow of The True Self

 

Good Monday Morning! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I am up early, seeking our message to begin our week and take with us through it with wisdom. The Runes are speaking this morning, so I pulled “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum close, and the Rune that fell into my palm was:

L 1

Laguz: Flow, Water, That Which Conducts

Message (paraphrased): Unseen powers are active here, creative and fertile powers of Nature. The attributes of this Rune are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of tides and emotions, of careers and relationships. Laguz fulfills our need to immerse ourselves in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the desire for comfort and the satisfaction of emotional needs, to the lunar side of our nature. For, while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward unity and merging.

This Rune often signals a time for cleansing: for revaluing, reorganizing, realigning. A Rune of deep knowing, Laguz may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for self-transformation. Success now lies in contacting your intuitive knowing, in attuning to your own rhythms. A Rune of the Self relating rightly to the Self, Laguz signifies what alchemists called the conjunctio, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after”.

L 2

from The Desk of MarDrag:

I have written a great deal lately about the importance of living our True Life and being our True Self. Now, it is more important than ever, as we see the turbulence in the world ramp up and become disheartening and frightening. Laguz, the Rune of deep knowing, calls on us to do that very thing…to reach deeply into our Spiritual Self and align with our intuition, which leads to our True Self. Now is the time to lay aside the lies we tell ourselves, the pain of the past, and the self-incriminating ideas that we are not enough. Our True Self is always enough because that is where our True Nature lies. And, whenever we live in our truth, positive energy thrives.

L 3

Laguz once again reminds us that unseen powers are at work. Those forces around us that we cannot see, but are present and moving and creating around us. Some of that creation looks hazardous…but we cannot succumb, we must dig deep and find that Spiritual Warrior and make ready for self-transformation…which will aid the world in its transformation. If each of us do this, the Light we create will link, and balance will be restored. Just by being our True Self, and living by our own True Nature, we help the balance of the tides that are ebbing.

L 4

Some of this we can understand…but there are many things we do not or cannot understand at the moment, but that should not stop us from moving forward and doing what we know we need to do. Often…the understanding comes after we have been brave enough to keep moving, even when we are not sure where we are going.

Right now, we may not be sure of “where”…but we can be sure of “how”…by accessing our intuition, tapping into our own individual rhythm, and aligning with our True Self. And going with the Flow that comes from living our True Life.

L 5

We must Flow with the tides, not against them, as we align and link. This is important…if we are to have our fairy tale happy ending. Which…I believe…is still possible.

Blessings!

Monday Message ~ Go With The Flow

 

 

Good Monday Morning! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the Spring weather and holiday. In preparing for today’s weekly message, the Runes called to me this time. So I held the velvet bag that contains the stones in my warm hands and asked what message they would impart for us to follow this week. As I pulled “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum close, the Rune that fell into my palm was:

So, if there are obstacles in the way, go with the Flow, and it will work itself out, naturally. We cannot push the river. It Flows at its own pace, as our lives have their pace too, and we must trust our paths, our rivers, the nature of our Flow, to instinctively know its direction. Sometimes we understand the direction, but sometimes it is not as clear until we reach the bend that takes us in that direction. It is not always possible to understand why things happen the way they do. So, we must Trust our Self and our path…and go with the Flow.

Monday Message ~ Flow

 

Happy Monday my Good Readers! I hope you had a wonderful…and Comforting…weekend. It is the start of the week, so our Monday Message post is at hand. This time, we are seeking our message from the Runes…so I plunge my hand into the bag of stones and pull one for us. Pulling “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum to me…I set down the stone and see that it is…

Laguz 1

Laguz:   “Flow, Water, That Which Conducts”

Message (paraphrased): “Unseen powers are active here, creative and fertile powers of Nature. The attributes of this Rune are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of tides and emotions, of careers and relationships. Laguz fulfills our need to immerse ourselves in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the desire for comfort and the satisfaction of emotional needs, to the lunar side of our nature. For, while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward unity and merging.

A Rune of the Self relating rightly to the Self, Laguz signifies what alchemists called the conjunctio, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after”.

Laguz 2

from The Desk of MarDrag:

So, the start of the message this week is to still “go with the flow”…a reminder that we all need to hear sometimes. It is often difficult to go with the flow, especially if it appears the flow is taking us other than where we think we want to go. We question, ponder, and seek answers…but at times, it is called for to keep moving whether we have all the answers or fully understand or not. There are times when understanding does not come until we have moved through the circumstance. Would we hold our flow back or stop it for this?

Laguz 3

The word “Comfort” also comes up here, and I have been feeling this for everyone. I wish I could hold all of you in my arms, stroke your hair, and whisper comforting words to you. I think we all need a great deal of Comfort in these difficult days, but mostly get precious little of it. That is why it is so important to remember we can give Comfort to ourselves. Yes, it is nice to get it from others, but if we can’t, then we should not let ourselves down by withholding it from ourselves. Seek Comfort!

Laguz 4

And finally…we will find a deeper understanding, or knowing, as we take time to reorganize any chaotic thoughts, or chaos in our surroundings. With cleansing comes clarity. Do deep breathing exercises, meditate, or do cleansing and grounding exercises. Make them part of our daily routine. In doing these, we access our intuitive side and find our own unique rhythm. Make the time! Because, with this, we form a deeper relationship with the Self…and in coming together with our True Self…magic happens…and fairy tales, dreams, and desires come true!

Laguz 5

Blessings!

Rune For A Monday

 

Welcome Back to Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely long holiday weekend! After time off and celebration…it is difficult to get back into the flow of “regular” life…so to start our Monday off this week, I was drawn to pulling a Rune (from my set and book by Ralph Blum)…and here is the symbol that presented itself with its message for the week:

Laguz

Laguz: Flow, Water, That Which Conducts

Message: “Unseen powers are active here, creative and fertile powers of Nature. The attributes of this Rune are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of tides and emotions, of careers and relationships. Laguz fulfills our need to immerse ourselves in the experience of living…without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the desire for comfort and the satisfaction of emotional needs, to the lunar side of our nature. For while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward unity and merging.

This Rune often signals a time for cleansing: for revaluing, reorganizing, realigning. A Rune of deep knowing, Laguz may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for self-transformation. Success now lies in contacting your intuitive knowing, in attuning to your rhythms. A Rune of the Self relating rightly to the Self, Laguz signifies what alchemists called the conjunctio, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after.”

from The Desk of MarDrag:

Well…there is most definitely a pattern emerging from the messages we have sought these past couple of weeks. This is the third in as many weeks that speak about Cleansing, Water, and Flow. I think a tide is turning…and we are being counseled to “go with the flow”…instead of against it. Laguz talks about the ebb and flow of life…as well as the active forces around us…and tells us to become as fluid as the water.

There may be changes or upheavals in our lives right now…but Laguz says we are not being called to evaluate them or understand them (just yet)…but to flow with them as they merge into our lives. Rather than trying to understand all that is going on, or change it…we should spend our energy on examining what holds value to us, and reorganizing our priorities. It calls on us to be in contact with our intuitive side…listening to that Inner Wiser Voice…and turning to the study of the spiritual aspect of life so that we may be in better touch with the Self. When the Self “relates rightly” with the Self…a deeper connection with our Spirit, Truth, and Power is created. A unity occurs…within and with the Self. It is in that unity that we find exactly what we desire to fulfill our needs.

Laguz River

Cleansing, water, tears and flow are the message here…so continue to cleanse yourself of negative energy and thought…rinse them away in the water…allow the cleansing tears to come…and go with the flow of what is happening (for now)…until the energy transforms…as it always does. Seek answers in the spiritual realm…because understanding in the physical is not within our grasp at the moment.

We are being called to Trust our paths…and the Wisdom of God and the Higher Powers and the Universe…and to take care of our own rhythms that guide us on that path. Be Present, See to our needs…and all, in the end, will be well.

Blessings!
