Rune Helper: Ansuz

Runes are a system for self-help and guidance, used for many
centuries by the ancient people of Scandinavia, Germany, and the
British Isles.

ANSUZ represents “the word” as it flows from the gateway of the mouth into the wider world. ANSUZ relates to how we express ourselves, reminding us that, if you have a lot to say, breathe deeply and compose yourself before speaking. Try to ensure that all the possible channels of communication are clear and that information is flowing as it should. Being alert and well-informed is crucial.

There are sources of wisdom and inspiration around you, if only you are attentive to their counsel. Watch and listen carefully, for a mentor may appear in an unexpected guise.

With a hobby like Handwriting Analysis I have always been fascinated by Runes. They are so much like some ancient script. I believe that there is no randomness in the universe and it speaks to us in the medium to which we respond best. Runes could be such a medium and if used not so much as a crutch, but to elicit guidance, then they can be quite enlightening. The trick is to use one spontaneous draw and meditate on it - and not to try and get to a Rune that gives us the guidance we prefer over the spontaneous one. The Rune could be a seed thought and it should be given room to develop over some time (3 weeks?) - to allow for real personal change.
