Rune of the Day-Othila Retreat, Separation

This is the rune of transformation, indicating a death-like separation from who we think we have become, a severance from who we were, or at least thought we were. Frequently, our paths become blocked by habit, trait or belief that has the power to overwhelm our true self. Deep and meaningful change can only come through breaking ties with our self-imposed limits.

a blessed friend once told me that after you have tried every key, it is a good thing there is still the skeleton key. through the passing of our old self, we can develop anew often with a great inheritance left by that old skin’s passing. The real and forever task of the seeker is to continually inspect the relationships that we make, even if they be within our selves, look carefully at what is working and what is not, then being willing to cut out the traits that work at cross purposes to our fulfillment.
