These messages are meant to be appropriate and valid for you from the day in which you read it and through the following week.
The Nordic Runes have reached out this week to tell us this message. Long ago, it is said the runes were divined by the god Odin for people to use as both language amongst themselves, and language to bridge the gap between humans and metaphysical beings.
Isa - pronounced “ee-sah”, is the rune with the direct translation of ice, and in the times of the ancient Nords, this was known as a dark omen. An obstacle for most to cross or overcome, it signifies lack of movement that may be blocking progress - paths being frozen in the midst of Winter's wrath. Unfortunately, this generally leads to delays, and it can feel like you are pushing against the current - like you are moving backwards.
Although this is the current state of affairs, it does not mean there is no hope on the horizon. The sun will shine again and melt the ice that blocks your way. It will heat you through to your core and bring forth the rising of knowledge you had not been privy to before. A hardiness develops when we encounter these kinds of obstacles. As long as we learn from them, we will grow and become stronger. If you find that the ice never seems to melt, you should look inside and find what is fueling this frigid blockage. It may be a deeper issue than just something at the surface - similar to an iceberg, the largest part of it rests beneath the ocean’s surface.
Although this is a short entry, this rune is critical and should be your focus this week. Acknowledge that the blockage is there, and that it is bigger than you - maybe now is the time to reach out to another who is also undergoing this obstruction. Connect and form a bond with something beyond your comfort zone - one that will help you through this icy patch and who will stay present for any other obstacles you may encounter through these episodes of darkness.
Overall, the message seems clear - as we find ourselves alone, isolated and spiraling into the unknown, we can help melt the iceberg by banding together. Even if you think you are alone in this blockage, realize that as you read this message from the divine, so do others - they too feel the same. Now is not the time to fear reaching your hand into the darkness, you may find that in doing so, you find another open palm, waiting for your friendship. And with that, I leave you for the otherworlds.
Thank you for reading. Deep peace to you, and may your week be filled with healthy vibes.
