My Spiritual Disciplines, Leaders and Mentors

Among the many FAQ’s during sessions and emails, some variation of the following comes through a lot: “If you don’t mind me asking, what are your spiritual disciplines, and who do you consider to be your spiritual leaders or mentors?” I live a deeply spiritual life, but I tend to keep my beliefs and practices quite private. More and more people keep inquiring, though, including this morning. I decided to write a somewhat lengthy response and will share that here, in case more people wonder what informs my work and life. I’m not one to post everything online, but this will give a general overview of some behind the scenes attitudes and inclinations. 🙂

My spiritual disciplines morph with the seasons and have shifted across the years. I used to meditate and/or chant for hours per day, but for the past six years, my primary spiritual practice has been gardening. In late 2012, Continue reading

Quick Updates and Tree Love

Just a few updates on a sunshine and snow filled day!

It’s Good to be Alive, Right About Now

For most people I know, 2017 got off to a slow start, but then the forward momentum snapped like a rubber band. Lots of people, myself included, started new creative projects, and others have redecorated or embraced cleaner, higher vibration foods, as well as new exercise programs. I’ve lost track of how many people started rebounding after I wrote about it in my “Shaking Up the Energies” post. Bouncing, especially to fun and/or sacred music, really does get that lymph flowing and gives stagnation the old heave-ho.

The following Andy Grammer song sums up the shift of energies for so many people, and, coincidentally, this would be great for some dance-rebounding. 😉 Continue reading

Portals, Numbers and Falling Doors

I’m not entirely sure what to make of today’s post, but third time’s the charm, so I decided to share some of the strange goings on with portals, energies and falling doors at Faery Hof. The synchronicities have been over the top, as have the recent collective energies, which we are all processing in our own ways. I know David and I are in a period of major shift as we wind up our time in Goshen, and I know these painted portal doors are powerful. They always work, often very fast, and are coded for specific results as well as the highest good of all involved, not just human-centric.

Each door contains a personal prayer, as well as a collective offering. I’ve had some of them for nearly seven years, but I painted most in 2010, during my nine months in my ninth floor tower apartment two blocks from Lake Michigan in Hyde Park, Chicago after my divorce and subsequent return to the Midwest following a nine year stint moving around the most beautiful locations of the Pacific Northwest, Southwest, and Northern and Central California. Yes, lots of nines! Landing in that apartment was its own layered and seemingly destined event. If interested, you can read about my Chicago Moving Story and the Mother Lode of Doors here, but it’s enough to know about the nines and that the apartment I was directly led to by dreams, intuitive instructions and synchronicity just happened to be right under an attic full of doors that had been waiting there for five years per the new building owners’ instructions that their purpose would someday reveal itself.

I recently mentioned how I’m in a nine year on multiple levels of my astrological chart, nine being the number of the Hermit. Nine also features prominently in our address, but I won’t post those details here. In addition to the Hermit, nine is associated with Odin’s nine nights on the tree, as described in Odin’s Rune Song, which details how he hung on “the windswept tree” for “nine full nights,” sacrificing himself to himself until he noticed the Runes scattered below him. From his fasting, solitude and upside down perspective, he suddenly made sense of the Runes, spontaneously understanding them and claiming their wisdom and powerful energy as his own.

Anyway, there’s some background on the doors. They’re powerful, intriguing to visitors and blog readers, and they’ve done their job, usually with powerful synchronicities and changes. Until recently, though, they’ve existed in the background. They haven’t moved of their own accord, and I always considered them symbolic doors, painted spells, and/or energy portals to preferred realities. I don’t know if it’s the potent energies of 2016, the increased energies emanating from my garden, or an amplification of major inner transformation literally moving solid reality, but recently, these doors have begun to move.

On April 19, 2016, in a post called “Sync Winks and Faery Portals,” I shared a bizarre (even for me) experience with Door Number 17 ~ Elen of the Ways. The post itself contains an intertwined series of synchronicities and a strange “fall” down our steps in the wee hours of the morning. It’s long and involved, but to summarize briefly, instead of falling straight down the steps, I somehow pivoted in midair and literally flew into the door to left below:

Faery Door 444.jpg

The door you see to the right is the one in front of our steps. In order to “fly” into the white door — designed as a portal into Faerie, as well as a prayer for “sustainable sovereignty” in our world –I was somehow carried and turned so that I landed by body slamming the door almost as though walking through the doorway, but it was solid. Miraculously, I received no injuries.

I had just been wondering, “Where will we move when we’re finally done our time in Goshen?” I know I’ve got a contract with this land, and David and I had earlier been discussing how I might as well just continue to dive into the gardens here until I’ve completed the transformation. I had forgotten a message from 2014 that I am opening a faery portal here with all the land healing, flowers, trees and sacred work I do on these two yards. Around the same time, I received a vision of David and me as very, very old people, sitting happily by a fire in what feels like Ireland but might be the actual faery realm. This has remained a steady vision of mine for years now, popping up when least expected, but I wasn’t thinking about it at all [that night].

Anyway, after asking that question, I floated/body slammed into a faery door with the address at the top of 444.

I eventually went back to bed, tossing and turning for awhile and then finally sleeping just long enough to awaken at 4:44 a.m., about 21 minutes before David’s alarm was due to go off. Note the address on Door Number 17: 444. You can read the synchronous story of that door’s creation by clicking here, but I didn’t notice the 444 sync wink until several more synchronicities prompted me to take a photo of it to share in [the April 19th post]. If I explain all the synchronicities, including a photo of me from March 2016 and a Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle card, today’s post will never get to the most recent events, so for now, please just note my strange intersection with a 444 door and then happening to look at the clock at 4:44 a.m. as the next clock time I saw:

According to Doreen Virtue’s Angel Numbers 101 book, “444 means that the angels are with you. It’s a comforting reminder from heaven, reassuring you that your prayers have been heard and answered, and that you are being helped, watched over, and protected by God’s angels.” The bottom quote of this 444 door offers Rumi’s quote: “Love says, ‘There is a way. I have traveled it thousands of times.'”

Fast Forward to Summer Solstice 2016, when another door dramatically reaffirmed its presence by toppling over right after I opened our curtains. Note that I did not actually touch the door when I opened the curtains, and I have done that same act without incident for over two years since we first hung those curtains. Door Number 6 ~ Freya and Frigga,Door Number 6 ~ Freya and Frigga, a door featuring goddesses involved with reweaving destiny … a door that originally hijacked my creative process and inserted itself ahead of Door Number 7 ~ The Lovers …this 1111 portal door on which I had been painting the golden sun drop tears when an intuitive voice told me to go join Facebook right then and there, an action that directly led to my meeting and eventually getting together with David after a fractal of absurd and mind boggling synchronicities … this door …

Frigga and Freya

…crashed down of its own accord on Summer Solstice 2016:

Summer Solstice door

Again, no damage to me or the door, but it certainly caught my attention! Tania and I had been texting about intensities happening with her beloved and magical rabbit companion, who was very ill, and we sensed very close to transitioning. The falling portal door seemed like the end of an era, but also the opening on a new one. Joy passed the next day.

In addition to the Full Moon on Solstice and the potency surrounding Joy’s shift, which revealed enormous growth and peace for Tania, I found it interesting that this door crashed down/”broke on through to the OtherSide” right after I had been doing some massive work around a pivotal event in my childhood. Synchronously, my mom’s house –the house where this still not fully understood cosmic, future setting event happened –also sold right at Solstice. The quote on the front of the door reads, “There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in.” ~ Graham Green.

The back of the door, revealed by the fall, features … Odin’s Rune Song! (Yes, all those nines are still at it … and the 1111 door fell at 8:11 or 9:11. I honestly cannot remember which at this time. Either way, we have an 1111 door falling at the 11th minute and if 9:11, then we have another 11 when we add the digits.) The back of the door also has some Hebrew on it, which I don’t recall painting, but which an Orthodox Jewish friend of mine traced to a VERY obscure announcement of liberation. The bottom panel has a chant to the Goddess in her many forms.

Anyway, that was Summer Solstice 2016. I did not feel led to post about that falling door until two nights ago, Door Number 7 ~ The Lovers moved almost of its own accord. I say “almost,” because I did somehow manage to catch a blanket on the door and, tugging it, apparently pulled the door down on top of me while in bed. I have never caught a blanket or pillow before, and I really don’t know how that happened this time, but somehow it did. This is the heaviest of all the doors, so I positioned it so that if it ever did fall, it would not hit my head. I don’t need anymore head injuries! We usually stack extra throw pillows and blankets on the stool next to the door, which you can see below:

Lovers door

Note the 222 address, as well as the fact that this door got a January 2015 update of the red panel that now reads “Gaia” and includes the Celtic symbols “Wheel of Being” and “Destiny Knot” that represent harmony and a reweaving of destiny. The bottom quote reads: “Between God and the soul, there is no between.” ~ Julian of Norwich.

Apparently, between Lovers Door and body, there is also no between, and I’ve got the bruise to prove it:

bruise from the lovers door

As gruesome as that looks, I feel no pain in my arm unless someone really pushes the bruise. Despite my yank of the mysteriously caught blanket, the door seemed to fall in slow motion. I definitely felt it land, as the bruise reveals; however, like other experiences of my life that could have (by all rational accounts should have) resulted in very serious injury, this falling door did not crash anywhere near as hard as it could have. After waking David to help me lift it off me (it did not even make a noise as it “crashed”), I went downstairs to get some homeopathic arnica to take internally along with the external gel I had already applied. The clock downstairs read 2:22. So, here we have a third odd experience with a door, followed by seeing the door’s address echoed in the next glance at a clock.

According to Doreen Virtue’s Angel Numbers 101, angel message of 222 means “Trust that everything is working out exactly as it’s supposed to, with Divine blessings for everyone involved. Let go and have faith.” Um, okay, then! All those things I’ve set in motion and sensed moving behind the scenes — are apparently moving.

Also interesting is that as soon as the door fell and while I waited for David to wake up, I began hearing the mantra painted on the back of the door ~ a mantra invoking “the divine manifestations of the sacred union of masculine and feminine properties.”David and I have been experiencing positive recalibrations of many things in recent months, including a deeper balance and strengthening of the masculine and feminine qualities in ourselves and with each other. I know others — including my faery twin soul sister Tania and her Dave — who have felt the same uptick in mutual creation, focus, support, shared experiences, partnership and manifestation.

As with the story of my first “fall” into the 444 door, followed by seeing 4:44 on the clock and then having over the top synchronicities directly involving and mentioning portal doors, yesterday, David and I just happened to watch “The Adjustment Bureau,” a movie that just happens to feature main character named “David,” major synchronicities, deepening love, and … portal doors!

All I can say is that the doors have my attention. I will continue to take seriously the “Gatekeeper” and “Invitation to Faery” cards I keep pulling from Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle, both about portals, and I will continue to listen to the Four of Swords card (need for meditation/retreat) and the Moon (intuition, “stay on your path for safety”) cards I frequently pull from the Tarot. “The Adjustment Bureau” offers a great deal of insight into the concepts of Destiny, path, free will, portals and the ability of Love to alter reality. Plenty to continue pondering in my nine year at Faery Hof, Haus Am See and the gardens.

Happy Full Moon, Blessed Be … and be the blessing!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Opportunities for Influence

As Within, So Without. Indeed, so much of our outer life depends on what sorts of healing, initiations, and/or processes we engage within. On the other hand, we do live in times of tremendous collective influence, and finding that right balance as we move into the Age of Aquarius seems quite elusive on the world stage!

Emergence can quickly get co-opted into emergency, yet we also can direct from within our own peaceful, liberated hearts and minds. If you feel so led, please take your pick among any or all of these key emergence/emergency hot zones this summer:

Expected today: US House of “Representatives” voting on the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act. Masquerading as a mandatory GMO labeling law, this bill makes mandatory labeling completely voluntary with zero consequences for disobeying the law. It also gives a free pass to the most GMO-ridden crops, nullifies any state and local GMO labeling laws (even those already in effect for years), and some attorneys fear that tricky legaleze (legal sleeze?!) may open the door to making it illegal for non-organically certified small farms to list their produce or seeds as non-GMO.

The Senate already passed this monstrosity, and the House voted for a similar bill last year. We know most of the Senate and Representatives are bought and paid for by Monsanto and Big Pharma, brainwashed or bribed into shilling for those hell bent on destroying our planet, sovereignty and health. I’m personally sending the AR Rune right smack dab into the mix. The AR Rune shines light in dark places, can break through brainwashing, repels ill wishing magic, restores honor, and can also transform a DARK “Yes” vote to a shining “No.” Worth a shot! Reiki Healing Attunements to blow away the fog of denial and corruption can also help.

This vote is expected very soon, so work your magic ASAP. With the TPP and TTIP trade treaties, what happens in America doesn’t stay in America, so if you’re overseas, this process potentially affects you, too.

Ongoing: Brexit and other proposed EU Exits.

Sending light and discernment to your own country and asking for the highest good of all — can help these situations expand into their own emergence, rather than devolving into emergencies that end up creating even tighter regulations and controls. “As within, so without” includes inviting the Wisdom to see both sides’ points so that real, tangible, beneficial solutions can reveal themselves. Nothing in politics happens by accident. Ken at http://redefininggod.com has been detailing these anticipated moves for years. I don’t always agree with everything he posts, but awareness of the coup countercoup charade of the world stage right now can help to find local, person to person, humane solutions that create evolution instead of just another revolution that takes you right back to where you started, only with tighter controls.

July 18-21: Republican National Convention, Cleveland, Ohio

It will take massive amounts of prayer, healing energy, peaceful intentions and deliberate actions for the highest good of all in order for the US not to devolve into Civil War and/or Martial Law this fall. This is not a doomer prediction, as I know we each have influence; however, paid agitators and thugs have already been hired to disrupt the Republican National Convention. Even if nothing happens at the convention, an announcement of Trump is set to trigger riots if he does win … and likely to trigger a revolution if he doesn’t win.

The stakes have been raised, lit and the fires continually stoked. Those who wish to impose order from chaos are standing by with truckloads of gasoline to pour on high running emotions from all sides. I suggest the Reiki Mental Emotional Healing Symbol to surround this convention. For those not trained in Level 2 of Reiki, you can imagine healing, soft green light infusing harmony and peace in the crowds in Cleveland and other cities responding to events in Cleveland. Imagining a gentle rain might also help to keep heads cool enough to assess opportunities for emergence rather than reacting to gratuitous, race-baiting vitriol.

Let’s aim for people recognizing the humanity in each other and uniting to overthrow the gasoline purveyors intent on gaining more control from the chaos they ignite.

July 25-28: Democratic National Convention, Philadephia, Pennsylvania

This convention offers/threatens to wake up the idealistic Left to realize just how fixed and ridiculously controlled the system really is. Millions of Bernie supporters received a b!tch slap in the face and kick in the gut when their “People’s” candidate endorsed a former Monsanto lawyer, former and current Wall Street lapdog, should-be-indicted-but-isn’t (on multiple accounts) criminal, war mongerer endorsed by Dick Cheney and Karl Rove, and anti-women’s rights (on so many levels), vote-stealing, establishment candidate.

Say what?! Millions of super nice people just got a rude awakening.If cognitive dissonance does not fully take root, these people have a chance to leave the field and grow something truly grassroots.

The Democratic National Convention is, ironically, building a Donald Trump like wall to keep outsiders from entering, but Hillary’s most recent free pass from the FBI and ever more controversial Loretta Lynch has anger seething from both far Left and far Right with an increasing number of centrists joining the mix. Who knows what people have planned for this event? But we can rest assured various behind the scenes players intend to benefit from watching the People fight amongst themselves. All wars are bankers’ wars.

I suggest the AR Rune for this convention, too — to help people see behind the pretty words and lofty sentiments. What actions and long term results support these words? Where do the policies espoused by the speakers work directly against what they say they stand for? Where are the Feminists who truly love women? Where are the people empowering “the poor” not to be poor anymore? Where are the organic food lovers and small farmers truly wanting to feed the world real food? Where are the Earth lovers not wanting to give big corporations total control over our environment? Where do the ideals not match up with the policies? Where are the good-hearted idealists projecting their own good-hearted idealism onto people actively working against those ideals?

The Reiki Distant Healing Symbol can help infuse the present words and future plans with awareness of how we got here in the first place, as well as “been there, done that, and now it’s worse ‘solutions.'” Gentle loving-kindness can also help heal the wounds of yet another betrayal. Sending deep Earth energy and grounding to this convention can help to bring ideals into more concrete actions that actually align in the physical, tangible realm with ideals of equal rights for women, care of the Earth, care of communities.

Ultimately, we are the ones we are waiting for, and the sooner we realize that, the easier the rebuilding process will be. We can model what’s possible in our own lives, but we are also powerful beings. Voting machines are much more easily rigged than consciously directed energy and intentions are.

Blessed Be!

And see if you can find some way to be the blessing. 🙂

Finding Our Way

On first glance, the next three links  and video might seem completely unrelated; however, taken together, they form a mosaic of awareness, compassion and navigation for these troubled, yet high potential times. I’ll give a quick intro of each link. Please click through as you feel led. These links will likely find more resonance with those from Europe, the UK or with European heritage, but anyone can extrapolate for his or her own culture and ancestry.

Uniquely You, Divinely One

This is a post from February 2013, but it holds increasing relevance today as questions of cultural identity move into front lines of discussion. In addition to exploring a beautiful painting by dear friend and artist Tania Marie, I draw examples from permaculture and monoculture as ways of looking at human culture, global awareness, and “sustainability.”

I also briefly discuss how Runes and a burgeoning Folk Movement were successfully perverted and exploited in Nazi Germany. What began as a deepening of roots and corresponding strength of the People was funneled into the bankster bonanza of WW2. With the current “immigrant crisis” in Germany, as well as the rise of Neo-Nazi’s in Ukraine, Europeans and those of us with European ancestry would do wise to reclaim and nurture our cultural and spiritual heritage, honoring and protecting these from being either snuffed out by censorship, or completely co-opted by far right extremists.

Plants with shallow roots struggle to survive when challenges come. We need to deepen our roots in order to survive the coming storms and droughts — on all the levels.

Refugee Crisis in Germany: Nazis on the rise, “never again” is happening again

via RMN

This lengthy article explores, in depth, ideas from Sebastian Haffner’s book, “Defying Hitler,” which carries inside it the same warning I keep raising to the extremely progressive, “granola,” “love your neighbor” types I usually find myself surrounded by in volunteer settings, Transition Goshen gatherings, or Earth healing events. Many blog readers know that straddling the line between far left media brainwashing/fear-mongering and increasingly far right “alternative” media reactive-fear-mongering creates strange allies and often gathers looks like you’ve got four heads.

Despite the discomfort, we need people to continue and yes, dramatically increase, building viable bridges. We’ve got geo-engineered and natural climate chaos. We’ve got politically engineered, war caused and climate caused refugees situations, and we’ve got poisonous fundamentalism of all stripes fighting against all but their own narrow dogma. Meanwhile, we’ve got incredibly precarious food chains, power grids, national borders, financial systems, and emotional stability. Here’s where the above article puts forth the challenge to those with some awareness of what’s happening:

According to Haffner, people governed by fear but not ready to join the frenzy will “withdraw into their private lives” and pretend that everything is fine as long as they can manage, while ignoring the signs that become more obvious every day. And this is exactly what is needed for the rise of a totalitarian state: people of conscience paralyzed at home, a mob on the streets shouting angry slogans, and everyone in panic. At that point, it doesn’t really matter who steps in as “the savior”, whether he crushes the mob (and the genuine opposition with it) or leads the mob to victory, because the result will be the samea totalitarian police state, backed by the same elites that created this whole situation in the first place by their plundering of the economy, corruption and endless wars for profit.

I’ll tie in a series of questions from Uniquely You, Divinely One: “Here … and beyond, what form of global awareness do we wish to invoke? What type of Oneness do we wish to invoke? What kind of peace and sustainability do we wish to invoke?”

I don’t continue to raise awareness of right wing concerns because I’m secretly a right wing extremist. I continue to synthesize information from both sides, realizing that the Bankers Manifesto of 1892 remains in effect. Those who wish to stay in control spin both sides of every divisive narrative, every divisive issue, and every divisive religious war. They profit from wars of all sorts, and by keeping us fighting each other, they successfully utilize smoke and mirrors to herd us into ever tighter restrictions. Those who most love progressive values would be wise to engage those who most resist those values. Let each side exchange information, not to become the same, but to find who’s best at which things, so that together, we can breathe.

Northern Soul Complex

The video below gives insight into what Daniel Updike calls the “Northern Soul Complex.” Daniel (“Wodenson”) gives a history and description of important differences between unity and uniformity. This broadcast explains unique language, needs and spiritual concerns of European heritage — not to disparage other cultures, but to help people reclaim their own lost genetic and spiritual heritage.

If you have a different heritage, please consider digging into your own heritage to see if you find any gems from your own folk soul. Again, I share this not to exclude mixing traditions, but rather as an encouragement to deepen the connection between body and soul, and thereby increasing a sense of rootedness in this time of great migration. Be where you are, but also know where you’ve been.

Note from youtube:

The NRR Podcast episode “The Northern Soul Complex” re vamped for airing on the NRR radio station. The diagrams of the “Northern Soul” are inspired by the writings of Edred Thorsson, who discusses this complex in his books “Runelore”, and “The 9 Doors of Midgard” which are recommended reading for those serious about understanding the symbolism presented here.

The pronunciation of the parts of the soul are essentially incorrect in this broadcast, and intentionally so, as the persons listening/watching the material would spend far too much time attempting to find the portions of the soul being discussed thus missing subsequent points being made on the subject matter. It was decided at the time of recording that speaking the words as they would naturally seem in modern English would serve the listener better for this purpose.

One thing I particularly like about this discussion is the observation of expansion or contraction. If you’re not actively expanding your awareness, your reach, your creativity, then the power of contraction dominates your life. In chaotic times, one way of bringing peace to our world includes expanding your inner peace further and further outward from the core of your inner being. IMO, whatever tools facilitate that expansion of peace, positive creativity and blessing merit exploration. Every culture and religion has its own esoteric, mystical traditions, which can inform and inspire deeply rooted strength and action to guide our reality towards love, nurturing and healing.

The Ever Present Now

I left this as a comment on a different site, but decided to bump it up here:

What’s really cool is that since all time is now, you can actually alter the “past” — from your immediate experience of “this” moment in “time,” shifting the previous experience [of] even extremely traumatic events into ones with less sharp teeth or Velcro claws. You can do this with highly imaginative focus, but some tools and techniques make it easier to do so:

The NOD Rune, for example, helps to lift one out of the trap of linear cause and effect. The Distant Healing Symbol taught in Reiki Level 2 helps to send energy to distant points in space and/or time. A Reiki Healing Attunement, particularly if done over symbols or photographs you associate with that time or event, can radically shift how that event played out and thereby shift your experienced Now. This works really well on individual experiences, but with sufficient imagination and connection, it can also alter more collective trajectories. I’ve witnessed this many times. Artwork, too, can form a powerful bridge among past, present and future. Getting into the creative mindset and consciously selecting symbols designed to trigger your own SUBconscious into desired effects helps to bridge not only time but also create new realities. You can also dance out trauma, disappointment and perceived stuckness. Dancing reallllly moves energy!

However you feel and whatever you believe about the supposed “Moon Matrix,” you can utilize the Moon in reality modifcation. The waxing phase supports any desired increase. The waning phase supports any desired decrease. The New/Dark Moon is perfect for burying things — either to lay them to rest, or like planting seeds. The Full Moon lends extreme power to intentions. This is not all woo-woo stuff. Think of how the Moon moves the tides and bear in mind that we are largely made of water. All tools can be used for good or ill, for creation or destruction. Use them wisely and responsibly, and they pay big dividends in the ever present Now as it radiates back, forward and in ripples throughout “time.”

Awareness of the eternal Now is important, but so is the corollary step — finding empowering ways to incorporate that awareness for healing and regeneration. 🙂

What is Shamanism? – Rune Shamanism – Law of Wyrd

I frequently receive questions about Norse mythology, Runes and shamanism. Many different systems exist, but this video gives an excellent overview of shamanism as a proactive, intermediary bridging between worlds. People who feel drawn to shamanism but concerned about cultural appropriation often feel surprised and relieved to learn that those of European background have their own indigenous shamanic tradition. Animism seems hardwired into humans’ brains worldwide; however, this introductory video focuses particularly on the heavily suppressed indigenous beliefs of pre-Christian Europe.

Another teaser here, this one discussing the holographic, divine nature of Runes:

For more information and resources from Thunder Shamanism, please click here.

I also recommend the Basic Rune Course at http://runemagick.com .This particular system self-selects, so if you don’t resonate with the material or presentation, then it’s not intended for you and you won’t be able to focus enough to truly access that system of Runes. At first, I thought that was just hype or somewhat of a platitude, but I’ve witnessed this fact again and again. For those people who have some kind of connection with that heritage or a past life history with these Runes, their lives rapidly morph upon exposure. Those who don’t often cannot even draw or remember a single Rune from that site, let alone grasp how the entire system opens up new realities. They find the site “weird,” too detailed, boring or overwhelming — anything but helpful. If you do happen to resonate with the material offered by Karl Hans Welz, you’ll find that site a never ending treasure trove of information on how to shift reality through a variety of highly effective tools and techniques.

I have studied several systems of Runes, one of which (the Elder Futhark) is quite common online and in most Rune divination books. Karl Hans Welz teaches the Armanen System of Runes, which I have personally found most effective for daily use and for coding intentions into portal paintings. I first began learning the Runa Faery system of Runes back in 2009 from a Druid named Shawn Blackwolf, whom Tania Marie and I encountered in on a mystical trip to Mendocino. Learning that system uncorked part of my awareness and manifestation power in a similar way that beginning to learn and chant Sanskrit did. These are ancient, sacred languages and systems — actually related, if you go back far enough in their pre-history. If you’ve known them before, you’ll recognize them and begin to remember how to re-engage those energies.

If for some reason, none of this material grabs you, then it’s just not your thing, and that’s completely fine. 🙂 I just stumbled on these videos and thought I’d share since people occasionally ask for additional information.
