the runes > gratitude

Oh great Magic 8 Ball, regal me with wisdom above the Rune’s … HA!

Practice Gratitude each day for the blessings you receive. Be grateful for Divine wisdom and guidance, for the courage to face your pain and for the strength of your spirit. Be thankful for the love in your heart, and the willingness to walk the path of healing. This Rune is an invitation to count your blessings.
Gratitude, thankfulness, gratefulness, or appreciation is a feeling or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive.

pain

Pain can be thought of as an absence of love, from cells to people, as a constant. We might not all be able to feel it at all times. We might not even know what it is, until it’s there. And then it hurts us.

the runes > forgiveness

Oh great Magic 8 Ball, regal me with wisdom above the Rune’s … HA!

Drawing the Rune of Forgiveness is an opportunity to con­sider the situations in your life where you have been thought­less, unkind or mean-spirited. What can you do to make amends? Do you need to write a letter, sit face to face, or sim­ply speak openly to that person, ask for their Forgiveness and give them your blessing?

The pulling of this rune is, while not the first time nor the last, is another thing that I like exploring. The runes says this about forgiveness :

Forgiving someone who hurt you, and making amends— these are two faces of Forgiveness. There is a third face as veil: Consider whether receiving this Rune, at this moment, nay be an invitation to extend Forgiveness to yourself.

Down a dark path one will slip if there is no forgiveness.

the runes > acceptance

As previously noted, I’ve decided to add another little piece to the site, and that being some of the feelings I have when I use The Book of Runes. Before I catch shit for this, it’s for fun and introspective. I tend to liken this to a Magic 8 Ball.

Acceptance in human psychology is a person’s assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (often a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it, protest.

The pulling of this rune is, while not the first time, something that I like exploring. The runes says this about acceptance :

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Wiser words are rarely imagined.

the runes > anger

Anger or wrath is an intense emotional response. It is a normal emotion that involves a strong uncomfortable and emotional response to a perceived provocation. Often it indicates when one’s basic boundaries are violated.

The pulling of this rune is, while not the first time, something that I like exploring. The Healing Runes says this about anger :

The challenge for you in drawing the Rune of anger is to take angers powerful energy and treated as an ally in your healing, a wake-up call for change.

This rune announces that the moment has come for you to let go of anger. Know that doing so you must give up the old and be willing to wait patiently for the new to be revealed to you in its proper time.

And I used to think that anger was a gift ….

faith

As an addition to this older post, I wanted to note something else to it … From Wikipedia.org

Faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing; or the observance of an obligation from loyalty; or fidelity to a person, promise, engagement; or a belief not based on proof; or it may refer to a particular system of religious belief.[1] The term ‘faith’ has numerous connotations and is used in different ways, often depending on context.

cat migraine part 2

I was in the kitchen last night and my Ragdoll started in with his meowing again. He stands between the closed doors, about 1ft away, staring at it as if that will magically open the door.

I open it to get some ginger ale and he makes his move. I leave the door open for him and I started thinking about the first cat migraine post a few years back …

“What if he has a migraine? Maybe it’s the cold from the freezer that helps since it’s his head that’s completely in the freezer. But then why is he purring? Shit, do cats get migraines?”

And then I realized that all he wants is ICE. Yup, my stupid ass Ragdoll wants me to put some ice cubes on the floor so he can lick them. Ragdoll. Licks. Ice cubes.

SMH.
