Now available on my Etsy, a link is in my bio 😁
New round Elder Futhark rune set! Like most of my sets, they were crafted out of cedar. After cutting, shaping and burning and shaping again, I sealed the wood with a bees wax mixture of mine to protect and preserve the wood.
Cedar has been used for many many years for its magical qualities, which include helping with communication with the divine, sanctifying spaces and helping protect against negative energies amongst other things. I have nothing but love and respect for everything that I craft, but to make something truly yours, I sage prior to shipping so you can put your own energy into it as well! I do suggest you consecrate them with your own personal ritual to make them a part of you. Whether that's sleeping with them under your pillow, meditating with them or how ever you chose to do it, I suggest doing it 😁 I include a piece of sage with every set to help you do just that!

No matter where you are in your journey, you’re enough to fulfill the experience. You’re enough to overcome it, and you’re enough to walk away. You’re enough to ride it out for the gift awaiting you. You are just enough. This is something I need to remind myself of more often, as well.
I have a very full life, full of joy, kids, work, and friends. If anyone in your journey feels like they have to remind you that you are not fulfilling their needs, and seek to tear down your honor, remember you are a reflection to them. You have zero responsibility to fill anyone’s cup but your own. And when you surround yourself with other full cup people (or refillable cup people who are understanding and regeneratively self sufficient) you will drastically dwindle your self criticism.
Reminding myself today my work is my joy, not my proof. My friends are my reflections and value my time and my life. My family is my support, not my enemy. And if anyone does not align with that, I cannot fill their cup and shouldn’t waste effort trying.
Maybe it sounds harsh, but the fact is life is too short to surround yourself with people who make you feel bad for being who you are. Life is too short to give your gift to others who will never truly see it for what it is. I don’t know who else needed to hear that today, but there it is.

Why are we so afraid of alternative explanations to things we thought we knew? Why do most people today ignore or try to explain away facts about the past that they can not explain today?
Like the Pyramids of Egypt… Who built them? And how did they? Did you know that we are UNABLE to build pyramids like that even with the technology and skills we have today? If we are unable to build pyramids like that today… that means they were MORE advanced in the past than we are today. That doesn't make any sense, does it? How can we LOSE skills, technology and knowledge like that? Yet, we know that we have…
We often think we know it all today, because we are lead to believe that our societies are so very advanced, and that we are so well educated. But we still don't even know where we are, how we came here, from whence we came, how long we have been here, why we are here or indeed wither we are going. We are still, in 2015, completely lost in an universe we don't understand, as entities we don't understand.
We are not very advanced after all. We live in extreme ignorance. We have in reality not moved an inch forward, since the Stone Age… in fact we have only gone backwards.
Today we even work hard to ensure that our species degrade, all in the name of 'humanism', and thus we only move farther and farther away from all answers. We try to open the gates, but only more keys are lost, as logic fades… We drift away from the shining light into decay, degradation, defilement, despair and depression… and we attack each other, and throw all of mankind into a damp dungeon of darkness in the process.
Seek instead the betterment of mankind itself, so that perhaps we can grow perceptive enough to one day find those keys! Let there at least be hope that we one day can find the answers -- which we the last two thousand years have only moved farther away from.
Spare me your scorn and hatred! Spare me your contempt! Spare me your embrace of the fading light. Ascend instead. Lift your mind and body, and let the man of the future be better than we are today. Ascend!
