Letting Go

I’m taking a class with Molly Remer “Womanrunes Immersion.”   As soon as I picked this card “The Reflection” Rune of  Surrender.  Gentleness.  Sacrifice.  Letting Go.  The image of three birds flying high up in the blue sky came to me, and I had the feeling that I was to give them what no longer fits for me.  I was to let go of what is still holding me back from expanding and living in my truth.


Letting go of what contracts me. 

I get attached to the old and familiar and have a hard time letting go.

Sometimes they’ve been with me for so long that I don’t even notice them anymore.  Like right now as I’m writing the thought of it having to be something meaningful, have a purpose and be perfect and brilliant, has come up and is invading my being.  I have to be conscious of these thoughts, recognize them, thank them, and send them on their way – reminding myself that right now I’m writing in my journal and this is for me alone and no one else, if I want to share it later I can always tweak it or leave it as is (if I’m really brave.)

When I allow those old thoughts to overtake me, and I’m editing every word before it even comes out and shows up on the page, it closes me up from getting to my truth.


This image has brought a new awareness.

As I mentioned in my last posting, I’ve entered a new higher level of consciousness, where I’m barely over the threshold, and I’m being asked to let go of all that is keeping me in a place that has finished teaching me.

I get so settled in my daily routines, in rituals that I have become used to, in prayers that I repeat every day but that have lost their meaning for me.  In thoughts that repeat themselves.  In habits that I just hold on to and not notice.

Moving into this new higher consciousness I have to let go of old thoughts, old rituals, old prayers, old affirmations, old ways of being that are no longer aligned with who I am and who I am becoming.

This rune Reflection and the image of the birds, is a reminder that I need to be fully present and connected to my highest and I can’t be, if there are interferences that are enclosing and contracting me.

So here I am –

E x p a n d i n g

L e t t i n g  G o –

of all that is contracting me –

I let the birds carry it away…

I make room to welcome that which has yet to reveal itself to me.

That mystery that is waiting to awaken an even deeper awareness within me.

I  l e t  g o…


Use the image of the birds flying off with what you are letting go of.  Share it here, I’d love to know what you have released.
