Message from the book
Harvest the fruits of your hard work. What you reap is what you sow. Creating connection and harmony with the land is beneficial for you. Calm and nourish yourself with contact with nature. Change will happen gradually, not overnight.
A seed is planted,
A miracle of possibility,
And it grows
Strong, made of sunlight
And water and work;
A living treasure
To hold, to harvest;
Reward for the right action,
I am Jera
The primary message for Jera (pronounced, “yehr -ah”) has to do with the various harvests in our lives. As a people who collected seeds from which to grow crops, who bred and raised animals, who cut and cured the lumber from which they built their powerful boats, the Vikings understood both the necessity of hard work and the cycles of development and growth that culminated in the harvest of the fruit of that work. They also understood that to grow in a skill took time and dedication and could not be hurried.
The Vikings also recognised and valued the ideal of ethical action. They saw right action as deserving of reward – not according to karma, but simply in terms of reaping what we have sown. Like the rune Gebo, Jera deals in the idea that what is given – or in this case, planted – is what will be harvested. In this way, Jera looks to the future. It highlights the concept that our actions today and every day count.
If you have not put in the work, you will not reap the harvest you desire. Victories based on luck may feel hollow or might not last.
