Rune for this day Wednesday 27th June 2012

Before selecting my moonstone rune from it's snug little velvet pouch with Tree of Life insignia, I contemplated my day ahead.

A short but intense meeting involving the immediate fate of a person's employment - not to be taken lightly.

A long and potentially conflict-ridden meeting deciding the long term fate of a machine line and therefore probably eventual employment of a small group - much discussion, fact-gathering and analysis.

I set my thoughts as to how I should "be".  In first meeting, it is necessary to be dispassionate and to listen well, be fair, be decisive.  Secondly, to ensure I monitored natural tendencies towards bossiness and irritation, and to adopt the role of facilitator and organiser of information such that we leave the latter meeting with a clear action plan.


With these thoughts firm in mind, I reached for my guiding rune.  As I ran my fingers over the lovely vibrating little stones, trying to feel for the "one", a little moonie fell into my hand.  Self-selection?


And .... (drum roll, pls) .... Kenaz!  Thrilled just because it's my favourite I did think it's appropriateness for the day was prophetic in the least!  I read through Kenaz as described in "The Book of Rune Secrets" and these messages resonated strongly (particularly for Meeting 2):


"Kenaz is the rune of understanding a process, and applying it to create.  It results in both science and art and magic."

(My colleagues will view any magical element with their sharply-honed skepticism, but they don't need to know that Kenaz is shaping our day, do they?!!)

"If you know that a cause produces certain effects, you can predict (perhaps determine, in our case) the future more accurately.  But cause and effect are meaningless without experimentation."

That's the important learning!


For Meeting 1, I think just keeping Kenaz in front of mind for seeing truth and therefore justice, ensuring we don't make any assumptions, or let some gloss over important facts, or over-shine less important ones.  Let the torchlight illuminate the whole story so we can make the right decision.  "Feel the fire it represents very strongly when we discover we've been lied to, and that fire fuels the further pursuit of truth ..."


Ahhhh, Kenaz!
