The Rune of the Week

This week’s Rune is ANSUZ which has to do with communication, inspiration, creativity, connection with the higher realms, seeking knowledge & wisdom, as well as teaching.

However, as I have already mentioned, we are currently in the Runic month of URUZ so this connection with the subtle realms of knowledge is focused on the self (projects included), self-knowledge and self-care as URUZ supports energy, stamina, and (self) healing.

In short, as you turn inwards, tune in & trust the information that is shared with you, ANSUZ will provide the knowledge and know-how as to how to heal your self and strengthen your physical body (if not the other ones as well). Direct insight and revelations are of utmost importance.

In terms of healing, I do connect ANSUZ with the throat (4th chakra) and the upper respiratory tract. Issues in this part of the body can stem from lack of communication to suppressed or unaddressed emotions (sadness & grief in TCM), it can also be the accumulation of toxins (often in the digestive system) that are trying to find their way out of the body, etc…There’s a whole range of respiratory issues so I will not address them individually here. In any case, a little TLC won’t hurt as detoxing & strengthening your body in the Summer will prepare it for the cold months ahead.

For those of you who don’t already follow me on Facebook and/or Instagram, I have a Runic Healing Podcast in preparation (which has to do with the Runic Healing Curriculum I’m working on) that I plan to upload later this week, in which I shall talk about URUZ a little bit more in-depth.

A few extra recommendations: 

  • For inspiration and focus: galdr with Ansuz & Uruz
  • For physical issues: stadhagaldr (Runic postures also known as Runic Yoga)
  • For emotional & spiritual issues: hoendstadha (hand gestures also known as Runic Mudras

Meanwhile, be well 😉

Rune secrets

“…By singing the runes you can connect to the primordial forces of the cosmos, you can vibrate in resonance with everything else and with the primordial power of the cosmos. In that way you can say that the runes are sound. And because sound is created by the primordial wind, the holy wind, ond, the runes are also wind, spirit.

By singing the runes you attune yourself to the cosmic web, to Urd‘s web, thereby receiving the knowledge and power of the Dreamtime by going into the creative process emanating from Ginnungagap. This is a way to transform yourself and the world through connecting to the intelligence field of Mother Earth, which contains the memories of those “distant times”. By singing the runes you overcome the gap between yourself and the sacred, tuning into the sacred, in fact, becoming sacred, whole, healed…”

From ‘Rune Magic & Shamanism’ by Jorgen I Eriksson

NB: I have experienced the healing and the ‘becoming whole’, this is why I am so passionate about sharing what I know on this topic with others…

Uruz

Today we’re entering the Runic month of Uruz. If you are thinking about starting a new project, business or adventure now is a good time to do so. Uruz will provide the energy and stamina needed to feed your momentum.
If you’re feeling tired or drained, Uruz will definitely recharge your batteries (postures / stadhagaldr (recommended). Now is also an auspicious time to focus on (self) healing and (re) building physical strength (immune system included).

As I am working on my Runic Healing Curriculum, with the Rune URUZ, this came to mind (I’m also preparing a podcast on Runic Diagnosis, which should be uploaded on this blog shortly).

#time is not linear : past, present and future overlap. It's something you can feel when you connect energetically with an #ancient site : the past is still #alive and happening, #unfolding. #healing can happen at any point of the time-line : by healing your #ancestors you can change the past and alter your DNA. The present changes and morphs each time you make a decision (and #divination is a useful tool in that regard). The future is in a constant state of #becoming, therefore everything and #anythingispossible – especially with clear #intentions. #runes #runichealing #urdverdandiskuld #norns #uthark #futhark #uruz #healing #metaphysical #spiritual #paganism #pagansofinstagram #shamanism #shamansofinstagram #northernshamanism #europeanshamanism

Rune secrets

“The runes contain esoteric knowledge about the world and they are a philosophical tool that helps us to understand the world and its workings. But the runes are not only for understanding how everything works but also for doing magic, trying to influence the world, helping and healing people, animals, plants and Mother Earth. The runes are tools that enable us to intervene in the cosmic web. By using them in this respect they may function as an act of healing and an agent of change…”

After years of hoping, dreaming…and trusting. I’m finally taking the leap and creating my very own Runic Healing tradition.
