Rune Readings By Melody Bishop,
November 2013 Newsletter
Rune of the season: Tyr: Warrior, Sacrifice, Success, Courage, Valkrye The sword is the image for the rune Tyr The ability to cut away those things that you are holding on to that no longer serves you is paramount. This may come in the form of old thinking patterns that are negative and self-destructive. Perhaps you have some associations that would serve you best if you steered clear for a while. If you have a nasty habit or lifestyle, you can change at this time.
Bravery sometimes consists of releasing the things that no longer serve you. Battle is never easy and the universe is calling you to make positive change now. It also embodies the competitive spirit and ensures success in any competition you have worked towards. It is a great rune for fighting for what is right and just.The Vikings would carve Tyr on to swords and shields for strength and courage when they were in battle. Wear Tyr in your heart for the strength and courage you need.
Oh yes. Tyr hit the nail on the head as I thought about what to write in this newsletter. I always pull a rune or draw a card to give the newsletter direction and provide guidance to those who read it. Lately, during my readings, I find myself thinking that I should take my own advice more often. The incentive which lies in getting rid of the old and releasing, is that one can make room for the new to come in.
So much new has been coming in! I am truly blessed to have a wonderful husband and business partner to help keep me on task (I get easily distracted!), and do creative projects with. We both came up with a beautiful Runes By Melody Rune Card Deck. We couldn’t be more excited about this undertaking. We are looking for cost effective ways to bring the deck to you. We are planning to do more parties and events. Events for next year are already being booked!
All of this working did wear me down a bit. I had to cancel two dates due to illness this month. I was mortified and I apologize if they caused any inconvenience. The two dates have since been rescheduled. The Crystals Class at The Alta View Wellness Center will now be held on January 11, 2014 and my Friday Night Forum appearance at New Visions Books and Gifts will be on January 10, 2014.
In releasing the old.. We let go of some old clothes (by the way, Mercury Retrograde is a great time to clear out your closets) and items that were taking up extra space in the home. I am working on releasing some old thought patterns of lack and worry, which is where the taking my own advise comes in handy. Releasing is always easier said than done. I tell my clients a good way to release is to use the moon: On the first full moon, write a list of all you want to let go of. Go outside and burn the list. The next full moon write what you want to bring into your life. Go outside and burn it. What that does is offer your intentions to Spirit and make way for some movement and blessings in your life.
I will be out there on the next full moon burning with you!
