I was feeling worn out and tired and I have a big to do list with no idea on how to get started. When ever I am lost or questioning life I call on my inner Viking Goddess and I ask for guidance and pull a Rune symbol from my pouch.
My question was "What do I need to know right now to move forward in my life? I was shown to Rune Symbols, Eihwaz (defense) and Sowulo (wholeness). I have not painted Eihwaz yet, it will be the next painting in the Elder Futhark series. Its meaning was very helpful with what I am going through right now.
Eihwaz (Defense) : As we are tested we fund the power to avert blockage and defeat. At the same time, we develop in ourselves and aversion to the conduct that creates stress in our lives.
If there appears to be an obstacle in your path, consider that even a delay may prove beneficial. do not be overly eager to press forward, for this is not a situation in which you can make your influence felt. Patience is the counsel Eihwaz offers. Nothing hectic, no acting needy, or lusting after a desired outcome. This Rune speaks to the difficulties that arise at the beginning of new life. Often it announces a time of waiting for a spring t fill up with water., for the fruit to ripen on the bough.
Perseverance and foresight are called for here. The ability to foresee consequences before you act is a mark of the profound person. Avert anticipated difficulties through right action. For even more than we are doers, we are deciders. And once the decision is clear, the doing becomes effortless.
Receiving the Rune of Defense you are put on notice that, through inconvenience and discomfort, growth is promoted. For as the wood of the yew tree becomes the bow of the Spiritual Warrior, so each obstacle on your path, can become the gateway to a new life unfolding.
This may well be a trying time; certainly it is meaningful one. So set your house in order, tend to business, be clear, and wait on the will of Heaven.
