Womanrunes: The Heart

Womanrunes: The Heart. Rune of Love. Passion. May 2013 001

Right here, right now, pause. Rest, and know, that you are so loved. Held in love, supported in love, grounded in love. Draw it up. Draw it in. Breathe easy. You need not do anything. When you draw this stone, take a moment to acknowledge how often you act from a place of deep love. How underneath the surface of hurry and frustration and worry, there is a deep wellspring of love that drives you. And, in the next moment, extend your awareness, your grace and compassion, to recognize how often those around also act from deep love. Love as the ground of being, love as the field of being. This love underlies your living and your interactions. Trust it, know it, be it. It is inexhaustible. It sustains you.

Heart-centered, breathing easy, step forward with courage, resilience, ease, and self-acceptance. This stone is also about love of life, that which is right in front of you, unfolding every day. This is it, this is real. Don’t argue with reality! The Love rune also reminds you to take a turn to receive, to be nurtured, to draw in the love of those around you, to share passion, to remember to laugh. You can receive, you can give. Both capacities are boundless. Walk in love and love will continue to rise up to greet you.

Passion. It bubbles. It boils. It dances and sings. It enlivens your spirit, it animates you. Passion. Juice. Energy. Roll in it, roll with it. Say yes. Drink it up. Laugh, revel, celebrate, create, harmonize. Passion is the elixir of being and it speaks from the heart. Threading through your veins, beating in your chest, lightening your footsteps. Embrace it and smile.

Birthday mini rosebush has opened up in full bloom, the color so bright it almost looks fluorescent!

 Today was a difficult day for a variety of reasons and I really needed a message about love!

Update: this project evolved into a real book!

The first post in my Womanrunes series is available here. The runes and the names of them come from Shekhinah Mountainwater’s Womanrunes system for which there are no written interpretations available other than the name and one word meanings. I’m engaging in a semi-daily practice of drawing one and then going down to the woods with it to see what it “tells” me–basically, creating what I wish I had, which is a more developed interpretation of the meaning of each womanrunestone.

    Where’s the rest. I want more. I’m looking for the one word descriptions for rune 35-39 as these are new additions. Any idea where to find them?
