last night i dreamed i was at ease because my universal salary check was coming

i felt no anxiety about money

or paying bills

or working in an artificial way just to exist

or creating under pressure

or organizing my creativity for profit

or experiencing privilege


or experiencing lack

i felt utterly and completely held, that my needs were met

i have never believed that the over-systems here have my wellbeing in mind–

or most peoples’–

which has complicated my ability to feel that the pluriverse provides

i woke up breathing that universal salary is real,

and it pays in plenty for every being.


every being, ever.

my neural map now knows that the pluriverse can’t create aspects of themself that they can’t support

it is not possible


my job is to live the feeling of plenty instead of diverting straight to panic

i can know this now because

i can finally feel beyond my earthly economic traumas

into a bigger current of support


that is and has always existed

there is plenty for every being

we don’t have to ask, because it is already ours


we are pluriverse

text reads, "there is plenty for every being' showing the runes Fehu and Jera

I’m an animist, author, deathwalker and death doula. For the last 25+ years, through Soul Intent Arts I’ve helped others to ethically build thriving spiritual paths as fit, embodied elders, who upon death become wise, capable Ancestors. My work is Nature-based, and focuses soul tending through the Elder Futhark runes, animism, ancestral healing, and deathwork. I’m author of Runic Book of Days, and I host the podcast, What in the Wyrd. I also write The Weekly Rune as a celebration of the Elder Futhark in season. Full bio.
