The Story of a Message

 

M3.jpg

I was inspired to write this story by a special blogger friend who has an amazing site you can find here: Dreamwalker’sSanctuary . She is a wonderful artist, writer, and enlightened soul and shares many pertinent and moving messages. But lately…some of those messages seem to have been getting “lost” in the great WordPress netherworld and have not reached where she meant them to go.

This is a tale about those messages. Blessings and Love to All!

I can feel the slight scratch of the pen to the paper, but it is not a painful scratch. It is an artful scratch as the holder of the pen forms the letters that form the words…that will be Me…The Message. I patiently watch and feel as the Enlightened Soul moves the pen swiftly across the page of parchment paper…swooshing lines into letters with such graceful movement. I sense the power of the Soul…it streams down the arm and to the pen, embodies and flows through the ink onto the page as it fashions the Powerful Message that is Me…that I will take to endless corners of the Universe.

M2                                        M7

I can see the reflection of the Enlightened Souls face on the parchment paper in the candle light. The face is serene, as if in rapture, as the flow of Spirit Energy moves through, bringing the wisdom and love of The Message forth…to be told, shared. Would that I…a mere Thought…could tell you of the deep abiding force of Love and Pure Compassion that this Soul feels as they write Me…for it is Powerful…and needs to be felt by All. So the Soul and I feel the importance of this task.

When I, The message, am finished…the Enlightened Soul will share me on a platform called a blog…and many will read Me and share Me. And sometimes…because I need to flow far and wide…I will look to disappear in thin air…and not get to where the Soul wanted me to go. But…I tell the Enlightened Soul here…that they are not to worry…for I, The Message, have a journey of my own…a Path not entirely known by the Soul…one I must and do and am glad to follow.

M9.jpg

So…if it looks like A Message does not show up where we expect or think it should…never fear…for it has followed its path to exactly where it needed to be. For it has Energy of its own to share. As It Should Be.

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 ~ Life’s Messages

 

I woke this morning not sure yet where to look for our Monday Message. As I sat and meditated, asking for guidance to that message, a rustle of movement, a blur out of the corner of my “eye” came into vision, and as it came clear, I saw it was a Hawk, soaring across my mind. Our answer! So, I took to my “Animal Medicine Cards” by Jamie Sams & David Carson to see what the Hawk has to say to us this morning:

Hawk 1

Hawk: “Messenger”

Message (paraphrased): “Hawk medicine teaches you to be observant, to look at your surroundings. Observe the obvious in everything that you do. Life is sending you signals. Life is the initiation.

Right now, a clue about the magic of life is being brought to you. This Magic can imbue you with the power to overcome a currently stressful or difficult situation. The test is your ability to observe the nuances of Power lurking nearby. Is Power the talent you have and are not using? Are solutions always hard to find because you have lost the broader vision of Hawk? Pay attention! You are only as powerful as your capacity to perceive, receive, and use your abilities.

Hawk’s cry signals the need for the beholder to heighten awareness and receive a message. You are to be aware of signals in your life – so notice and receive them. Hawk may be teaching you to grab an opportunity which may be coming your way. On the other hand, Hawk may be bringing you the message that you should circle over your life, and examine it from a higher perspective. From this vantage point you may be able to discern the hazards which bar you from freedom of flight. Remember, Hawk has a keen eye and a bold heart, and flies close to the light of the Sun.”

Hawk 2

from the Desk of MarDrag:

I believe in Messages. I believe that signals about our lives are everywhere, if we but listen and look. It requires broadening our vision and hearing, and quieting the daily chatter, and when we do, we will pick up things that we would otherwise miss completely. We are intuitive by nature, and we can either ignore that part of ourselves, or acknowledge it and give it credence and power.

There are whispers of Messages all around us. Look and Listen.

Hawk 4

The Hawk, by nature, has a keen eye and ear. He can fly high and observe the movements on the ground with vital clarity. His senses are crystal clear, and he is bold in his knowledge that he has Power. He searches – looking and listening – for his path and his prey and moves swiftly when the opportunity shows itself. So take a view of your life from that higher perspective so you can see the whole of it and what or where you must take action next.

There is Magic to be had in life. If we listen to the Hawk, and the Messages that life and the Higher Powers breathe into our threads on the tapestry, then we can broaden our vision about our lives and create all that we need, want and desire.

Hawk 3

Be like the Hawk…listen attentively, clear your vision, notice your surroundings and all the small (or large) nuances in it like chance meetings, a random thought, an idea, an unexpected happening…for they all have voices that tell you something. And be bold enough to recognize your abilities and talents for the value that they hold. They are what will take you forward into a better life.

Now Listen…for the rustlings of A Message!

Blessings!

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.

Algiz Sedges

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!

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!

A Rune’s Message ~ Initiation & Transformation

 

I have mentioned here before that I have different books, cards, writings and tools that I use to find inspiration and messages as I journey down this path that Destiny and the Universe have set me upon…and I have chosen to follow. Today, I awoke with a strong sense to go quiet…and seek the Runes…an ancient alphabetic script, whose letters possess a meaningful name and message. The Vikings painted these runic symbols on their shields before going to battle. In the same sense, we can use the messages of these Runes as a protective shield, since knowledge of the self can transform a battle with the self into awareness, and with that, we lay our life swords aside for a time and find peace. The book that contains the translations and messages for my set of Runes is by Ralph Blum.

Today’s Rune that came to my hand is:   PERTH: Initiation,  A Secret Matter

Perth 2

The Message (paraphrased): “A Rune of mystery, pointing to that which is beyond our frail manipulative powers. Its ways are secret and hidden. Deep inner transformational forces are at work here. Yet what is achieved is not easily or readily shared. An integrity is involved that may be masked, disguised, or secret. After all, becoming whole, the means of it, is a profound secret.

On the side of the earthly or mundane, there may well be surprises; unexpected gains are not unlikely. On the side of human nature, this Rune is symbolized by the flight of the Eagle. Soaring flight, free from entanglement, lifting yourself above the endless ebb and flow of ordinary life to acquire broader vision – all this is indicated here. This is the Rune of questing.

Perth signifies that…Nothing external matters here, except as it shows its inner reflection. This Rune is concerned with the deepest stratum of being, with the bedrock on which your destiny is founded. If need be, let go of everything, no exceptions, no exclusions. Nothing less than the renewal of the Spirit is at stake.”

from the Desk of MarDrag:

Our journey through life, though we share it with many on many different levels, is really a very private, personal and secret initiation. Though we may disclose thoughts, feelings and events with others, there are the very deep, soul wrenching reflections that we keep to ourselves, for ourselves, as our secret conversations to be held hidden. And rightly so. It is a personal integrity we have for ourselves, and our deepest most acutely intense concepts about ourselves. As the Rune states, the means of becoming whole is profound, and is not to be shared lightly…or perhaps ever.

Transformation, though we do not always realize it or are aware of it, is always at work in some form. And at times, it is even kept hidden from us, until we are ready to see. There are forces at work around us at all times. I believe if we were always aware of it, we would be too overwhelmed with its power and momentum. This is why we live on a plane in the mundane. It is sometimes necessary so we have time and space to integrate the various levels of transformation, and assimilate the power of the forces around us…or we might spin into to a hurricane of energy we cannot process.

But…when we are called to it…and our path requires it…we must seek to soar like the Eagle, and rise above the mundane to lift ourselves free of the entanglements, the chains, that keep us bound to the mundane. We must live in the world, but not of it. We must ground ourselves to the physical even as we soar above all that is material to see the broader view. That is the quest of the Spiritual Warrior.

The Rune states that… “Nothing external matters here, except as it shows its inner reflection”. So, what is right before us, what may be happening now, is not the point. It is the deeper meaning that it reflects that we are called to see. We must look beyond what we “think” the meaning is to what we “see”, which is gained from a far different perspective. It is from above, outside, the mundane of everyday life that we will find this vision.

Perth calls us to “let go of everything”…which I believe to mean…let go of our attachment to everything and the desire to manipulate its outcome. Surrender it all to the infinite knowledge that it knows what to do, and is in force…while we attempt to take action…when the only action we should be taking, is to Let Go.

It is at that unfathomable, cavernous, yawning moment of complete surrender…at the very base of our nature…that Transformation of the Spirit, Renewal of the Spirit, takes place. This is the action of the Spiritual Warrior. Have courage…for the phoenix may step into the fire, but always rises, Transformed, into its greatest Self.

Blessings!
