What can we do today to increase our happiness? The rune that came forward to answer this question is JERA.
Jera symbolizes two scythes poised to sweep across fields of wheat, rye and flax, indicating that the harvest of your efforts is about to happen. It represents abundance and plenty, material manifestation and gain. It can also be the reminder to stay motivated and see your hard work through to a successful completion. A couple things come to mind as I study this rune. First, when we are doing the work, it’s common for us to become so immersed in the nitty gritty details of a project that we lose sight of the overall picture and we don’t notice how far we have actually progressed. This is a reminder to acknowledge the work we have already accomplished and give ourselves credit, a pat on the back. Second, I know from experience one of the biggest challenges we have as humans is to see things through to completion. We push hard to make things happen, but in the final moments just before we reach the target, we give up in exhaustion. Our fears and self doubts take over. Again, this rune reminds us to keep going that final mile; the rewards are waiting for us at the finish line. Keep our chins up and go for it, success is imminent. Hold to the course and be open to receive the rewards and the change about to happen.
