(Converse means the rune came into my hand face down.)
Key concepts: Hidden messages/information to be discovered; avoiding denial.
A message isn’t getting through – the truth is being obscured.
Today I’ll pay closer attention to the messages I receive from others, and allow my discernment to help me determine truth.
In retrospect, this rune’s lesson for me today was to avoid letting my insecurities convince me that everyone’s “out to get me.”
I tend to be over-sensitive to criticism. It’s a humorous dynamic I suppose…I find fault in myself easily, so I expect others to do the same (and then I’m surprised and dismayed when they do!). I’m working on a somewhat difficult and time-consuming project at work, and today two colleagues were discussing ways it could perhaps be done more efficiently. My knee-jerk reaction was to take their scrutiny and suggestions personally, but I later realized I was reading things into their feedback that weren’t really there.
The message – the truth that was obscured – was that I am more than adequate for any task I’m presented with.
