The Ansuz stave is a very divine rune that makes me feel a connection with the other world that I have long lost touch with. When we did the meditation on this stave I felt that connection from my crown to the cosmos. I remember seeing myself annointing my forehead with this stave like I used to do daily with the pentacle. A practice I stopped early last year. I see this stave as a connection of speaking one's truth while hearing the voice of "god". I also see this as a sign to be silent and listen.
I really did not get much out of this stave by putting in on my palms before sleeping. When I really felt a connection to it is when I was looking for a symbol of Odin to put on my drawing of Ansuz, and came across the story of his steed Seipner. The way he can travel between the worlds, that is when I realized the signifigance of this rune, that reminder to walk between the worlds everyday, never forgetting the connection of both, that they are one.
I don't have as much to write about this stave, the message was clear.
