Staying WILD, Reflections from a maturing Wild Woman Soul

Celebrating Wild Woman Soul - What does staying WILD mean to you?

Reflections on maturing, settling into our authentic selves and the post-equinox moon

.

The question I am exploring today is: What does living from your Wild nature mean to YOU?

.

For me it means sinking deeply into the core essence of who I truly am, into that place that only I can know, and then letting out my wild yop! through painting, women's-gatherings and other deepening practices.

.

Being creative, telling my stories, dancing and drumming on the earth, and expressing and sharing myself openly from my BIGNESS, not my fear (or despite it), but with my heart wide open and in flow, that is for me living from my true wild call and center.

.

When I reflect on my wild nature, stories come to mind: my first shamanic experience when I was young and the Earth energy first entered me, an intimate oneness sonar and heart-to-heart telepathy session with a wild ocean dolphin, facing life trials and challenges with courage and spiritual stamina, being broken open, and having survived. And more recently how I have come to know and open to my fiery creative feminine side and discover a deeper "Her", the Divine Mother/Feminine force, after years apart.

.

Today my wild nature includes honoring my older shaman soul, something I once hid or downplayed or practiced quietly behind the scenes for many early (but happy) years. Healing others and shifting consciousness and energy is something I have loved since early in life. And I am opening to offering and practicing shamanism more publicly today. This whole world needs it. 

.

Even at my age, and especially at my age, I need to drum deeply into the earth upon rising, singing my prayers for the day to ground and release and prepare for the day. As a highly sensitive intuitive person / empath, I feel alot in my body and deeply so. so cultivating and keeping a disciplined spiritual regime and schedule serves me where I live today and is not only beneficial for my peace and wellbeing, it is imperative. and yes, I am cultivating a more disciplined practice that feeds my inner fire and deepening joy each day even as I write.

.

My wild nature includes all of me. It includes embracing all parts of myself, from the gnarly and hormonal to the calm and free and wise. It includes embracing my shadow side, (do you have one too?, or is it just me), to honoring my silly playfulness, rich experience and well-worn path, and the wisdom that has developed inside the great inside during years of study, diving deeply, and cultivating my own healing and spiritual growth.

.

Unfolding a new wild chapter now at age 51, and stepping more openly into a more matured (dare I use the word "crone-worthy"? I do love that word. and just authored it I think.) female wild nature through my work does take time and baby steps and coming public with stories I wish to share does too, so gentle leaps are fine. I am a work in progress. And I love what I am coming to behold and know within myself today. I feel like an older lotus slowly unfolding her wings. And that feels goood. 

.

Knowing what makes us happy, not on the surface, but deep and deeply, to the roots and core of our individual and unique selves, being authentic and expressing it, (to even know what that means for us, is to be in part wild, if we are being real,) - and bringing forward our true Spirit and soul gifts and hearts to the world however we may offer them, are all parts of living and breathing as Wild women and awakened men today. Whether crone or maiden, male or female, or somewhere in between, feeling and expressing ourselves freely is something this world needs so very very much.

.

This has been one heck of a transformational Equinox month and moon/cosmic sky. Solar flaring and clearing indeed. I am happy to be feeling a bit more "settling" happening now. and look forward to evolving this fresh freeing wild call that many of us have been responding with for the whole of the deep past year really, and now also re-awakening as Spring opens her long-awaited Seasonal arms to us all.

.

My inquiry includes what it means and feels like to be a part of a New Paradigm of earth, goddess-embodied, perhaps more globally shamanic, women and men, with deeper Feminine embodiment, reflection and empowerment, and cultivating a more whole-istic collective Shakti bringing more fierce Light, Nature, Nurture, Justice and Healing to today's in-crisis world. There's a long way to go! but that's ok.

.

Every day is a new beginning.

.

Today's Inquiry:
1) What comes to mind when you think of "Getting Your Wild" on? How might you honor the call in your own heart and spirit and begin to open or re-open more fully into your own brand or experience of living wild and free? 
2) What activities in your life turn you on? (yoga - dancing - skiing - painting - immersing in silent time or time in nature- exploring another, deeper, layer in your spiritual path)? Reflect.

.

Be gentle with you.

.

Dance, breathe, kiss the earth.

.

Have a WILD day.
