This is the place deep in your soul that just KNOWS.
Your Wild Woman is a very real part of you.
It’s a genetic life-line of smarts and survival and the wisdom of the ages. It’s the tenacious defender and voracious protector. It is your intuition – a clear knowing; your gut instinct. It is the Creator inside of you. And the one who holds reverence for simplicity and prayer and plants and sunsets.
Your Wild Woman is Zen moments.
She is passion and fervor and skin on skin.
She is present while a baby grows in your belly and she is the sheer animal strength that bears down to bring a baby into the world.
You might not feel like you know her, but she sleeps peacefully, curled up inside you. You might feel her wake up over injustice, and when you witness cruelty. She will snarl at the intolerable and howl with loneliness for her pack. She paces when you are bored and stifled and hunts for that which will satisfy her soul.
She is inside of you.
Listen for her wisdom.
We’ve been taught to play it safe.
Trust others before our selves.
We’ve been told not to bite back.
That others know better.
We are gagged.
Let yourself come alive.
Trust that the wisest part of who you are, your Wild Woman, knows exactly what you need.
Let her guide you in your decisions.
Protect you with her wisdom.
Nurture you when you need such.
And be wild in the dark of night.
La Loba. Come alive.
Embrace who you are.
You know what you need to do for you.
“The comprehension of this Wild Woman nature is not a religion but a practice. It is a psychology in its truest sense: psukhe/psych, soul; ology or logos, a knowing of the soul… Without her, women lose the sureness of their soulfooting.” ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves
