Good morning. I was compelled to go in a different direction with today’s post. I hope it resonates with you on some level or another. This quote from Kurt Vonnegut surprised me. I didn’t expect something like this from him.

A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.  Kurt Vonnegut

Instead of a meditation, I am sharing a few minutes of powerful affirmations that are sure to uplift your day!

I was drawn back to the Rune Oracle Cards today. Look at all the passion in this image! It makes me think of the Olympics.

The rune Kaunaz is tied to fire, which is at once a carrier of light and heat, but also destruction. Each time that something new enters our lives, youthful energies are set in motion, and our gaze is illuminated by prospects that we had not taken into consideration. But we must not let ourselves be blinded by illusions or overly devouring passions.

It’s a good idea to reflect on how the strength of desire becomes part of our life and transforms it. After all, each action or manifestation begins with a thought. Are we able to achieve what we want, or do our dreams become a destructive force? Are our ambitions commensurate with our potential?

Kaunaz increases our vitality, makes us resourceful, and is excellent in regard to emotional issues.

There is absolutely nothing I can add to that, other than to use our passions and energy in a positive way.

Instead of pulling a Dragon Oracle Card today, I was drawn to my Angel Oracle Card deck. I love this card and all that it implies. Plus, it matches perfectly with the Rune card above.

Life Review. Archangel Jeremiel: "Take inventory of your life, and resolve to change or heal anything that is unbalanced."

That’s it! Make it a great week!

#MotivationMonday – #Meditation #Rune #DragonCard

Happy Monday! This is the last week of April. Is it just me, or are the days flying by faster? Here’s the thought for the week.

The meditation I chose to share today is positive affirmations. We so often fall victims to negative self-talk and then wonder why we draw negative to ourselves. The best way to turn that around is to change the negative to positive and watch miracles happen!

I chose to draw one Rune for this week.

Raidho is the rune of travel, representing the physical wheel of a wagon. This rune indicates you are setting off on a journey, whether in the external world or on an emotional or spiritual level.

If your travel is physical, Raidho signals a pleasant experience with few or no mishaps. If you are going on a spiritual quest, the going may require significant flexibility on your part, but the rewards of reaching your destination will be well worth it, as you are following your soul’s chosen path. Either way, you are advised to keep your focus on the experience of the journey itself, rather than on your arrival. This is because Raidho signifies not just the vehicle you ride in, but the road you travel on. You will be best served by making the most of every moment along the way.

A related interpretation of Raidho is “reunion”—specifically the return of old friends in your life or even the arrival of new people with whom you’ve made a soul agreement before incarnating into this life.

Some runic systems also view Raidho as an indicator that now is a good time for negotiations or deliberations related to agreements with others.

Finally, sometimes Raidho is simply a reminder to align yourself with the “wheel of life.” Know that life has ups and downs, ebb and flow, and constant seasonal change. The contrast between opposites is part of the journey of life.

My Takeaway: If you are planning a physical journey, expect easy sailing and enjoyment. If you are taking a spiritual journey, know that you will need to be open and flexible but the rewards will be worth the effort.

Drawing this rune affected me deeply on a personal level as I am embarking on a journey to Missouri on Thursday evening to indulge in some research for my new book. Taking a side trip to Branson will bring some fun and enjoyment into it as well. I know I should never be surprised by a rune or card, but still, I often gasp in amazement!

Here’s another beautiful dragon card to share with you.
