Be a lover of gateways. Approach them softly. For once you pass through there will be changes and much that you will gladly lay aside.
~ The Book of Runes
Life is never static. Change is always happening, whether we like it or not. Choice is always available, whether we recognize it or not. But how will we choose?
Will we choose from a place of conscious awareness of the Infinite nature of who, and whose, we really are? Or will we choose from that limiting place where we continually tell the same old story about what we can or can’t do based on the past?
Here’s an idea. Draw a line in the sand. Right here, right now. Say to yourself, “However I feel about it, good, bad or indifferent, the past is the past. I release it now. Everything that has come before this moment is behind this line I’ve just drawn. Everything that happens after this moment is out there, beyond this line.”
For just this moment, be aware you are standing right there on that line. This is the moment of choice. In this moment, all the power of Creation is right there in your hands and at your feet. This is the moment for meditation, contemplation and prayer.
The Druids developed a practice of drawing runes for guidance. One of the rune symbols is Thurisaz, which represents this sacred place of contemplation prior to choice. It is a place of non-action and it is also called the Gateway rune. Thurisaz is associated with Thor, the God of Thunder, so it is a powerful place to stand indeed.
Honor the change that has brought you to this point and honor the Spirit within that already knows the answer. Remember: You have choice. You have power. You have the God of Thunder on your side.
I am a powerful creator in tune with the Infinite as all possibility. I honor this moment and choose in harmony with Divine Guidance. And so it is. Amen.
