Come quiet. Come vigilant. Come true.
Come alone, intuit what you should do.
Do not make an effort. Do not stir a thought.
Truth breathes wisdom, in Divinity of all.
Open heart. unconscious mind.
Listen to the mystical cues you find.
Time is lost and not, as it has been.
When co creating, with our *Awen*.
Milking insights, of primal surrender.
whisperings of Cambrian ancestors.
It’s quite unbelievable and absurd.
How many ignore their ‘writing’ words.
There be a thread of quivering sound,
slipping of knots, into stitches around.
Scribbling sentiments like wild hunters,
or lightening strikes, when it thunders.
It’s a taste of brilliance, sewn in colours.
Rainbows imposed on top of the other.
Focus in contemplation. All you will;
when Awen holds your magical quill.
Weavers of Cymru indigenous tales.
Blessed be, our Awenyddion of Wales.

‘An Awenyddionstudies the different cycles and their place in them and most of all, they try to make the world a better place for themselves and other people.’ ~ Isobel Bird
Someone: Dragon’s don’t exist.
Someone: I don’t believe what I can’t see.
Me: You believe in the wind?
Random Person: That’s different
Dragon: Is it?
~ Pagan, It’s our Path
A Fiery Tale
‘Come with me on a journey’ she said,
‘We’ll talk with your heart, not your head’
‘You cannot wield it, none of us can,
it’s a conjuring of qi, d’you understand’?
As four elements are delicately weaved,
an unseen fire, fuels sky, earth and sea.
The *Nwyvre* origin of mental balance,
psychic seer, of emotional challenges.
In ancient folklore of Brythonic myths,
*Dewi” is the ch’i of the dragons kiss.
You can’t see the winds flying through,
as in your heart, knows what to do.
In using the Bards gloves of seduction,
my Dragon came with no instructions.
‘What’s her name, implored the witch?
where is she now, is there a switch’?
’Her name is ‘Cinder Ella’ she’s the key,
I didn’t find her, she has re-kindled me.
*Nwyvre* (Noo-iy-ruh) ~ Refers to the mental dimension. The life force that is in each of us. The Druids believed the Fire Dragon guards the ‘Inner Fire’ that burns inside our being. Nwyfre is related to the fairy word, which means “sky” or “heaven.”
*Dewi*~ Is an ancient Welsh God. The Red Dragon of Wales. Derived from the Pagan God, Dewi. is the official emblem of Wales and was derived from the Great Red Serpent that once represented Dew
The Anglo Saxon word for Dragon means “clear seer”. This implies that the Celts considered the Dragons as prophets and true seers with great wisdom
It is no surprise to discover a Red Dragon on the flag of Wales. The motto roughly translates as ‘the Red Dragon leads us’. Unlike many European tales, Dragons have strong benevolent tendencies, only harming when evil rears its ugly head.
When You Believe
They are born of earth, flame and bone,
long since forgotten and sleeping alone.
They weren’t the last to walk these paths,
through other worlds, they’ve since passed.
Scrambling through the cauldrons of hell,
back to the place they are known to dwell.
They’re messengers of balance and magic,
how we’ve forgotten them is utterly tragic.
Adored by the Welsh, their omens of good,
seers of great wisdom, wherein they stood.
Stand out magnificent, mammoth and mythic,
in fighting for what is right, they are terrific.
Their unquenchable flames of compassion,
in virtues of empathy, truth and passion.
It was a long time coming and they knew,
that hidden in yourself is a dragon, or two.
They light the sky with inferno of flames,
the legends of Dragons will always remain.
With fearless hearts, wisdom and charm,
when guarded by dragons, none are harmed.
Creators or destroyers back in their time,
friends of the shamans and gods divined.
If you’d like to practice earth spirituality,
wake your dragon energy, then you’ll believe.

Is Dragon Your Totem Animal?
The Dragon is often seen as the guardian of treasure. The treasure symbolises you. You must overcome your struggles and fears to reach your true self. Dragon is here to help you find what you are searching for.
The Rune ‘Algiz’ magical name;
an insignia of Protection, is His fame.
In His safekeeping, we are honoured,
in our awakening, we will prosper.
Boundaries, limits and self care,
are tested and strengthened there.
Will you need a mirror of reflection?
or perhaps, a reversal for protection?
We might not reap all that we sow,
but from awareness, we will grow.
Algiz raises upwards his guiding hand,
asking: ’This, do You understand?
This sign is used on armour and shields,
as ‘symbolic’ of defence on battlefields.
Algiz will be your strength of mind,
when struggling in emotional times.
A magnetic force, a field of energy,
if you have any problems, call *Hamingia*
Victoria Healing ~ 10.10.2021
Protect Your Peace.
Algiz is one of the most important runes. Standing for: Protection. Shield. Consciousness. Directing energy in the right direction. Resisting hostile forces. Guardian (*Hamingia*) Magical power. Sedge or Rushes. The Elk.
Temperance and courtesy are the sinews of this Rune’s protective powers.
Algiz victory runes were carved onto the shields, swords and spears of warriors as a mark of protection and sanctuary from harm.
The rune of life, his shape evokes the open hand protection.
Are the boundaries you have set being recognised and respected? Are you respecting the boundaries of those around you?
Perhaps the challenge you are feeling now requires the courage to say no to something that no longer has a place in your life.
‘When our attention is trapped by fearful should’s, what if’s and don’ts, we scatter our energy and struggle with knowing what is authentic for us’. ~ ― Nikki Rowe
THE ORACLE OF SELF
The primary objective for each Rune, is concerned with a correct relationship to your ‘self’ and are reflections of your own subconscious process.
If you are drawn to reading the Runes for your self; I’d suggest that you choose an oracle that you are instinctively attracted to. These poems are written from my own reflections. I use ‘The Book of Runes’ ~ (Ralph Blum) which were gifted to me by a dear friend, who has now passed. I am especially grateful to Sarah Beales who introduced me to these Runes as a study of self change.
MAGIC IN THE PRESENT TENSE (The fact that the runes were each given meaningful names confirms that they had some magical or spiritual significance to their users long before they emerged as an alphabet for records and messages.)
*The hamingja was a female guardian angel in Norse mythology. It was believed that she accompanied a person and decided his luck and happiness.
'I am learning to let go,
like autumn. I am learning to grow like spring’ ~ Sabina Laura
The Miracle of it All
‘Come to know Me’
Rune Berkana called...
‘You are the miracle of it all;
summer, winter, spring and fall.
Planets in perpetual twirling,
new blossoms when uncurling.
In the ebb and flow of oceans,
of sweet sap and nectar potions.
Winds, rustle through the trees,
of shadows and lights in eternity.
In blushing colours of the rainbow,
circles of the sun and moon’s halo.
When the birds twitter and sing,
you will be ‘agape’ in all things.
And the dance goes on and on,
as spirit sings, its mystical song.
and when your last teardrops fall;
‘You will be, the essence of it all’
Victoria Healing ~ 10.10.2021
The Miracle of it All
Rune Berkana. (Bear-kah-nah)
Meaning: – Fertility. Growth. Rebirth. Birch.
The Rune of the life process. The power to influence development and the nature in which it flows into your body. The cycle of life.
RITES OF PASSAGE
‘Help’ she shrieked. ‘I’m still alive,
don’t bury me here, I haven’t died’
The footsteps faded, no-one heard her screams,
as she realised then: ‘This is what death means’
Jumping into the abyss of her doubts,
and the petty things, she’d stress about.
It felt scary, in the bottomless gorge,
a turning point, that had to be explored.
As the darkness dissolved, shining to light,
the dawn of the day, brought new insights.
She’d been running away from the fact,
living for the ‘date’ had a greater impact.
Knowing each day is numbered, was her clue,
living life differently, was what she should do.
Something ‘primal’ called to her and said”
‘Don’t be sad, there are runes to be read’
Drawing on the strength, of the ‘Uruz’ sign,
invoked an unveiling of her heroine inside.
A new initiation, with fresh rites of passage.
There! a profound rebirth, of circumstances.
‘Thank God, it was only a nightmare’ she sighs;
‘I truly appreciate the fact, that I AM still alive’
Victoria Healing ~ 9.10.2021
Rune Uruz: ᚢ
Keywords: New Beginnings. Strength. Courage. Manifestation. Perseverance.
‘Uruz puts you on notice that your soul and the universe support the new growth. When in deep water, become a diver’ ~ (The Book of Runes ~ Ralph Blum)
‘Don’t let a wish bone be, where your backbone should be’
The Truth is ‘In’ there
He knows there is much more to know,
to recover the essence of his soul.
Searching for the mystical and Divine,
inside the spiral galaxies of his mind.
There’s nowhere to fly, no place to stand,
as he trudges through hedonistic lands.
A yearning felt in a ‘self’ he’s known,
hidden in the core of skin and bones.
Before the hierarchy of collusion,
caused mass fears and confusion.
That antiquated inhuman machine,
obscuring, metaphysics in between.
His once strong spiritual source,
has been veiled behind dread’s door.
Restricted from the infinity of knowing,
yet, this adventurer, keeps on going.
Searching higher perceptual states,
a mind, who tirelessly contemplates.
The beauty of love, hopes and intuition,
coincidences, dream speak and visions.
Multiverses of star’s in timely alliance,
beyond the cold frigidness of science.
To escape the matrix of fear and derision,
he joins fellow seekers on this mission.
Victoria Healing ~ 5.10.2021.
The Truth is 'In' there
“Let me tell you why you’re here. You are here because you know something. What you know, you can’t explain. But you feel it.” – Morpheus, ‘The Matrix’ (1999).
According to His purpose:
‘Whether we like to admit it or not, the rampant materialism of our age, will never really satisfy our deepest longings, for these are spiritual’ ~ Making God Famous ~ Mal Fletcher
This is why:
‘(God) has also set eternity in the hearts of men’
RED PILL RISING
You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.
’Speak to me about Joy’
It’s an enchantment, when hearts entwine,
a euphoric feeling, it’s a bright light inside.
The sacred essence within all things;
intense passion and bliss, it brings.
Some thing fuzzy beyond skin and bones,
a relationship you will remember and know.
Sunshine in your soul and caress of mind,
seen in a child’s laugh and twinkles of eyes.
It’s in the warmth of your Mom’s embrace,
that kiss of love seen in your family’s face.
Strangers momentarily, stopping to smile;
when strolling streets or shopping aisles.
It’s in the pure innocence of a pets stare,
seeing your family happy, free from care.
A vulnerability and feeling of safety,
Have you felt this contentedness lately?
Count up your blessings one by one,
mindful, it takes two, for ‘Joy’ to bond.
There’s happiness; casting Wunjo Rune;
the beauty of insight, in how ‘self’ blooms.
Victoria Healing ~ 4.10.2021
Heart Smiles ~ Wunjo
a Dream Journey
Swirling of lights, float within room,
as morning sunrise begins to bloom.
Sleep and wakefulness, in transition,
hallucinations of infiltrating visions.
Astral sounds and music are heard,
sometimes, ‘shouting out’ of words.
Between the passage of light and dark,
a super consciousness, a ‘divine spark’
Nightly invitations to pure connections,
blessings and signs for inner reflections.
Teaching of ‘self’ and gifts held inside,
as journey of spirit and future aligns.
Celestial messages, from heart to soul,
private insights, as waking unfolds.
Thanking the wisdom of your Dreams,
know their symbols and what they mean.
Sit in silence, remembering visual clues,
to this end, you’ll know, just what to do.
The idea of speaking with your soul,
is not as elusive as you’ve been told.
It can be a challenging task,
when this Raido Rune is cast.
To know how you will find;
will be a dream that comes to mind.
Victoria Healing ~ 2.10.2021.
Bridging The Gap.The Rune Raido.
The Rune Raido.
Journey. Communication. Union. Reunion.
~ The Book of Runes. Ralph Blum
Yes, I know I have housework to do, but this is more fun
Even if you are one of those people who find it hard to remember their dreams, you will usually have a vague sense about it, this could be a feeling of up-liftment, frustration, concern or peace etc. Just write it down. ~
The Dream Book~ Betty Bethards. Symbols for Self Understanding
It was dark, damp and cold,
as the bleak winter, had took hold.
But, little did i know,
i fearlessly continued, to rise up and grow.
Fighting persistently, for my survival,
is fundamentally vital.
Determined with strength and might,
i shot up, towards the brightest lights.
Twisting, changing, winding, ever turning,
upwards, ever green, growing with yearning.
In my quest for life survival,
my vision had become undeniable.
Bounding skywards, with daring and strength,
i sought pleasure, in the joy of happiness.
In the survival of my species,
these Ivy leaves, continue, striving and reaching.
Learning the warrior codes, in determined spirit,
this wild, Ivy, will never, accept any limits.
I’ve learned a lot from the Ivy vine…
… “to keep on growing upwards, at all times”
