Nauthiz cautions you to do self research, do not rely on the work of others because this rune focuses on the inner Self. It is within our selves we must seek answers to place the energy of nauthiz, no other can possibly know your divine blueprint. It is in stillness that we discover our innermost needs, stillness that leaves words unspoken until they are fully understood. This Rune is sometimes referred to as “the great teacher.” Nauthiz allows us the opportunity to truly look deep within, open up all those doors in the hallways of our minds and come into understanding with ourselves. When we enter the unknown, we can always expect some form of chaos to occur as we are entering the new, unexplored parts of ourselves. It is here Nauthiz can teach us not to fall into fear, but to rather fall in love with some wild adventure waiting to see daylight, perhaps many moons ahead from the one present in our lives, be patient.

From the historical rune poems about Nauthiz we get:
The Anglo Saxon rune poem translated tells us: "Need is oppressive to the heart; yet often it proves a source of help and salvation to the children of men, to everyone who heeds it betimes."
