Namaste ... Welcome to Your Self.

Summer is weeks away, and there could be no better time to focus on Self than by outsmarting stress. Mannaz represents a time of major growth and restoration – the kind that precedes progress. It is said that the garden must be weeded before flowers can bloom; weeding our inner and outer worlds is a perfect first step to decreasing stress and increasing peace. Pay attention to who and what in your world could use some weeding out, and follow through.
If we split the image of Mannaz in half, the Rune of Joy with its mirror image is revealed, as a reminder that only the Self can balance the Self.

Mannaz, the Rune of Self
  Mannaz, The Rune of Self  
  When meditating on Mannaz, the counsel is this: Remain present in approaching all tasks, detaching from the results. In this way, you will accomplish far more. Make the practice of weeding your garden an ongoing one, so that new flowers continually bloom.

Outsmarting Stress

The experience of creating this month’s Featured Art has been one of the most abiding and uplifting ways to outsmart stress that I have ever had. It is an amazing art project that I was blessed to participate in at Dell Children’s Hospital, “Art of Giving” event. You can read all about it here but if you want to apply the principle and outsmart stress right now,
pause, and ask yourself this question: “When have I felt the very best as a human being?”

Next Month: The Rune Dagaz
Next month, we will embrace Dagaz, the Rune of Breakthrough. Meanwhile, may Mannaz remind you that flowers grow when seeds are sowed.
With Many Blessings for 2017,
