2018 The Year of the Radiant Wild Woman

38247c38e9fbc106d747.jpg

Dear Radiant Sister,

Happy New Year!

For some the New Year is a time of year for goal setting, resolution making and planning for the year to come.  Others (like me) have let go of the goals and resolutions and this time of year is a time for reflection and presence.  No matter what your New Year beliefs or traditions are, most of us can agree that we can feel a shift of energy as we enter a New Year.

What I find especially curious about this particular new year is that we are entering this year alit by the radiance of the Full Moon.  I see this as an invitation to take a seat in our Full Radiance, unapologically Shinning.

It is a time to celebrate the gifts each of us carry with reverence and gratitude, as your unique gift alights the World, even in darkness.

Coming into this New Year on a Full Moon has many more archetypal meanings that might give us some clues to our personal SoulBody Journey for 2018.  See what lights your up inside when you read over them.  Remember, your Body feels your Soul's excitement first!

The Full Moon Represents:
 Shining in Full Radiance
Being in Full Bloom
Expression of Full Potential
Expansion
Illumination of Darkness
 Celebration of Light
 Lunar Consciousness/Feminine Consciousness
New Beginnings

Entering a New Year on a Full Moon, I personally feel is a wink from the Cosmos (or maybe even a shout out) "It is time to Step into your Fullest Radiance". "Shine Bright". "Embody Your Feminine Power". "This is Your Year for New Beginnings".  "Celebrate Your Gifts and illuminate the World".

"Your Light is Needed Now."

The light of your creativity.
The light of your laughter.
The light of your joy.
The light of self~acceptance.
The light of self~love.
The light of YOUR truth (even in dark times)

"Your Light is Needed Now"

Now, what I have not yet mentioned in this exciting exploration, pregnant with potential and possibility, is that not only are we entering the year with Lunar energy leading the way, it is also a
Wolf Moon.

Those of you that have read Women Who Run With The Wolves (which I can't recommend enough) understand the symbolism of Wolves in relationship to embodying our most essential feminine essence. 

The Wolf represents the wild, free, natural, instinctual, rhythmic, cyclical and earth~connect Self that is innate to us as women, as it is to the Wolves.  And the embodiment of our Wild Nature (or Wolfish Ways) is the journey of reclaiming our Wild Soul~Self.  

Re~wilding is a process.  A journey that for most of us takes a life time.  Slowly, with patience, curiosity and nurturance, we put ourselves back together again.  For some, Movement awakens our Wildness.  for others it's spending time in nature or creative expression.  Becoming Fully Whole again is a Holistic Embodiment Journey.


At this time our Earth is sufferings greatly because most of the western world has forgotten our Wild and Natural Ways.  That is why it is essentail to Celebrate and Embody our Wild Ways as Feminine Creature of this Earth. Clarissa says it best "It's not by accident that the pristine wilderness of our planet disappears as the understanding of our own inner wild nature fades."

The Wolf Moon today is shinning a spot~light, illuminating the path of reclaiming our Natural Selves as Instinctual Women. Claiming responsibility for  protecting and restoring the Natual Wild Ways of humanity on this planet by the way we treat ourselves and each other, the way we Mother, by the way we create in this world and the way we care for and nurture our Earth. 

Consider this as a cosmic call.   Your re~wilding for 2018 is a great Service to all.  You, dear sister, can  illuminate the entire Planet just by being you; natural, free, radiant and wild.


Yours, in Wildness,

Michelle


 

Your Wild Sanctuary

Dear Wild Soul,

Have you ever felt a longing to connect with nature? To be by the sea side or deep in the wild forest? 

Have you ever noticed a feeling of coming home when you are in your favorite place in nature. 

Even when you simply imagine this natural haven you feel your body's energy shift into a grounded state of wholeness. 

Clarissa Pinkola Estes (one of my greatest inspirations and known as one of the greatest story tellers of our time) is the author of
Women Who Run With The Wolves. 
She writes about how women, like wolves, thrive when in environments that are natural and supportive of our wildness.

She writes "It is ironic that we have wildlife refuges for ibis, pelican, egret, wolf, crane, deer, mouse, moose and bear, but not for ourselves."  She continues to write about how our own natural habitats have been taken over by cities, highways, noise and other disturbances and most wild women do not have a space to call "home" a space to feel safe and protected to just be FREE, Body and Soul.

Your Wild Sanctuary is a space you can retreat to, to spend time in your inner home, free from obligations and "to~do's".  

Like in the nature, we can also take refuge and find our Wild Sanctuary with a pack of women. A space where we can dance, howl, crawl, cry, laugh, celebrate and surrender. A place where we are free to be raw and real, primal and embodied. 

When women come together in Goddess Flow, we have the freedom to take refuge in the Wild Sanctuary of Movement, Dance and Soul Embodiment.  It is a safe space to retreat into our personal journey while feeling the safety net of supportive women. 

On this SuperMoon in Gemini, you may begin to wonder where your Wild Sanctuary is? If you already know, when was the last time you visited there? Does your Body Being desire more time there? Is there a place in your area that you can go to connect, re~wild, and feel mother nature and/or the support of other women?

Under the Full Moon today, Let's come together in Movement. Primal, Wild and Free

Dear Wild Soul,

Do you remember a time when you felt deeply connected to your inner voice?

A time when you felt in connection with all things around you? 

When life revealed its mysteries through serendipitous moments and synchronicities? 

It may have been a flicker in time, but in that moment your Body and Soul came together in full wondrous union and celebration.

These moments often come when we are unplugged from all the business and plugged into our Primal Source.

The things is, we often find ourselves connected to our Primal Source or Soul Voice in times of Being and not Doing

When we allow our movements to take us in Flow,
When we allow our natural curiosity to lead us,
When we wander in nature,
 When we give over to the magical body and listen to Her Wild Wisdom. 

When we Stop...  
Surrender... 
And just BE.

On this New Moon in Scorpio, I invite you to ask your Deepest Self ~ 

What makes me feel connected to my Primal Source?

When do I hear my Soul Voice, and How can I nourish my bond to my SoulBody Wisdom?

What happens when I allow my Movement to take me into my most Primal and Natural Flow? 


Here is a playlist for your Journal Inquiry and Goddess Flow Movement Expression.

You have all you need within you already.

Decoding Desire

dc8cbc008b22c4efb1a55dea4a8140bb--heart-chakra-nude-photography.jpg

Dear Wild Soul,


Have you ever wanted something so badly it hurt? Have your desires ever consumed all of your attention, energy and focus?  Have you had to make sacrifices in order to go after what you were so hungry for, what you were yearning for?  And have you ever noticed that sometimes when you actually got what you REALLY wanted, soon after it was replaced with yet another burning desire? 

This cycle is one I know ALL to well.  And, being a Fiery Feminine Creature, I became an expert huntress, always able to make the "kill" of whatever my desire was at any given time. 

And today, under the dark new moon,
I am wildly curious....

Could the bubblings of desires that seek attainment on the "outside" (like the hot shoes, bigger home, new relationship) simply be a reflection of a part of our deeper SoulBody that is seeking to be seen and sought out and discovered?

Could all of our external yearnings be a call to look within?  Could each one be a signal to be curious about the deeper needs and wants of our Soul? 

It's amazing when I unpack my personal desires how many of them are tethered to what society says I "should want" or "what I am suppose to have" rather than my deep knowing that no~thing on the outside is truly going to change who I am on the inside.  

Each time I have the awareness to investigate my driving forces that are directed outward rather than inward for fulfillment I see that what I am truly wanting, truly yearning for, even starving for at times ~ 

Is ME. 
The true me

Unconditioned. 
Wild.
Free.
Playful.
and Wonderous. 


Sure, wanting lovely things is a part of enjoying life and a wonderful part of living a pilviledged life.  
AND ~ when we seek outwardly to fix or quiet the deeper desires of our Souls by trying to satiate them with stuff/experiences/people it simply never works,
does it? 

This, for me is a deep dark truth.  A truth that lies beneath the surface of what is easly seen.  And for Women like us, seeking to live fully, wildly, soulfully we have an opportunity to dance in the deep dark truth of our SoulBody's Truth.

Today in your movement ~ Dance and Be Curiuos.

What is your SoulBody truly yearning for? 

Listen to the quiet whispers within.  When in your Flow allow sensations, intuitive feelings and inner wisdom call you in toward Her.

Our Inner Lover is always reaching for out for us.

Wildish Gift

Dear Soul,

Do you notice that around the time of the full and new moon as well as your personal lunar cycles, you are able to feel more deeply? Whether that be joy, or frustration, grief or excitement?  Have you to noticed yourself become more sensitive, attuned, reactive, receptive or introspective? 

In her book, "Women Who Run With The Wolves", Clarissa Pinkola Estes speaks about the great mysteries of feminine cycles and the potent wisdom it has the ability to reveal.  She writes that during the lunar times in a woman's life, the veil between the conscious and subconscious mind thins.  

 At that precious time we have the chance to "see" into parts of ourselves that are usually veiled, covered over or blocked.  The "veils" she refers to are the ones we put on everyday: in the roles we play, the duties we feel we must fulfill, and all "to~do's".

  The deeper we explore our feminine bodies in movement and in nature, the better we are able hone into the subtle messages our Soulbody is delivering.  As deeply feeling feminine creatures we are able to feel what has been buried over, what has gone dormant, what was hushed within us.


Our bleeding time (the time just before, during and just after) is a gifted time to see under the veils.  If your time of physical bleeding has ended, you still have the same cycles of releasing and rebirth every month, without the presence of blood. Our feminine bodies have their own cycles of release and rebirth.  Just like the seasons, and the cycles of the moon, our bodies are inherently tethered to our planet.

We are so incredibly fortunate for the gifts of the feminine genius of intuition, the ability to feel into what needs to be released, and the curiosity to discover what is desiring more exploration.  It's easy to fluff it off as PMS, or "that time of the month" and carry on.

But this, dear sister soul, I have finally come to appreciate that is one of the great mysterious gifts of the feminine. It's our natural, built in inner compass that is organically guiding us to see our shit....  The shit that we are still holding on to, the limiting beliefs that we are living out daily.  Sister, our PMS and Lunar cycles are our TEACHER!!!! 


This is one of our Wildish Gifts.

Our oracle bodies are trying to tell us what needs to release with the blood in order to create new. 

It's not just the physical blood, it's the psyche's blood.  The blood of old wounds, it's the blood of grief, it's the blood past feelings that didn't get a chance to really flow because it was bandaged over to quickly.

Dear Sisters, if this reflection resonates in your bones, dare to look under the veil.  Strip it off under the full moon and be naked in your truth.  Use the radiance of your lunar consciousness to light the way into the darkness of uncertainty.  There, you will find a radiant woman that is all yours - label free, full of Soul, Love and Wisdom.  She is all yours.  At this time with so much uncertainty and chaos happening in our world, anchor into the inner relationship with your true self. What our planet needs is deeply feeling, empathic, compassionate women embodying their authenticity! 

As we celebrate gratitude this weekend, celebrate You.  All of you. Bring your Wildness out to play.  The real you is what our planet needs most.
