This week, I'd like to address an issue on which I am working, but one that I realized, through conversations and posted comments, that many people I know are facing too. So many people feel powerless today and are living lives, doing things that do not make them happy, that do not make them feel fulfilled or satisfied in any way. In such circumstances, we don't feel like we have a choice, which is wrong. Within each of us resides the power to stand up and take control of our lives. So, I asked the Runes how we can do that. What do we need to know to do it? How do we approach it? After drawing the first Rune and thinking, 'Of course. I should have realized that,' I knew what the other two Runes would be and, honestly, I was a bit freaked out when I was right.
Here is our path to empowerment - Uruz reminds us that we have the strength we need to empower ourselves; Jera tells us that the path to empowerment is a process that will take time and will be as smooth as we make it, that is part of our empowerment, that we dictate the path; and that, if we want to be happy through this empowerment, as Wunjo offers, we need to focus on ourselves, not at the expense of others, rather to make us more aware of what constitutes our own happiness.
What is the first step you will take toward your own empowerment?
