Daily Rune Pull May 18th, 2016 - Othela Merkstave
We no longer have the luxury of avoiding our wounds. We have been put on notice that a time of healing, of releasing what does not serve our growth is at hand.
This morning we look to Othela in the merkstave position for our daily guidance. Othela is a Rune of Separation and when in this position we may observe that our resistance is the catalyst of our suffering.
This Rune in the Merkstave (reversed) position indicates a reluctance on our part to address the issues at had. Sometimes we resist the energy of Othela Merkstave due to a fear of loss or a need to retain a thing. Release your fear at this time, what you are hanging on to is really an anchor, not something of benefit to you.
Othela brings the energy needed for separation from old ways of being, outmoded thoughts and ideas we hold about ourselves and our World. When Othela enters your Life it is time to release what no longer serves your path. The parting that follows the arrival of Othela is often thought of as a death. Today we have an opportunity to witness the ending of a cyclic pattern so profound as to be seen as the death of a way of Being that no longer serves the Soul’s Path. The separation that occurs with the assistance of Othela is never reversed, hence the idea of a death, Something that is never to return. What you release today is gone and cannot ever reappear in your experience. Othela offers complete liberation from limits that before today, we believed were impossible to overcome.
Sometimes, the battles we choose cannot be won in the manner we first believed, and this often calls for a retreat from conflict. As long as we stay engaged in any conflict there can be no release from that conflict. As long as we remain focused on our discomfort and pain it will remain the focus of our lives. As we leave any negative emotion or thought of ourselves behind, know that it takes great courage to walk away from something that has been a major part of our ideas about ourselves.
After we release what no longer serves us, after we experience the death of thoughts that anchor us to pain, we receive the inheritance granted by Othela. An inheritance is not received for what we have done in Life, but is a birthright due to who we are in Life. When you release a part of yourself that is no longer serving the Path of the Soul you make room for gifts from Spirit, your inheritance in Spirituality, your birthright in this existence.
Today is the perfect day to release what holds you back so that you may make room for your true gifts. The veil between this Life and Divinity is very thin right now. It is the perfect time to make room within for the new creation you are to become.
