Sitting with a woman in a session who feels she has lost her way as we do from time to time. She tells me she had experienced a sense of the wise woman within as she left her last session that we had.  She asks me – what’s next? What happens next, now that I have felt her?

Its come to me that our wise woman within calls us. Throughout our lives we have stuff going on, we have careers, we focus on making money, we focus on spending money , we raise families…. Being passionate creatures, as women we pour our WHOLE self into our current point of focus….

When I was parenting (still am , though just not in the intense small children phase) I absolutely and totally gave my full self and soul, to growing, birthing and raising our children. This was not something I had to be motivated for, or gain inspiration for… it was within me. It poured out of me… LOVE has the power to do that, to drive us , to enable us to function on little or no sleep… as we put our own needs and wants aside often for the intensity of what we are experiencing in another area of our lives.

So as this beautiful woman asked me what is next , I realised as the words formed, the kind of pathway where we as women Return To Self….

There seems to be an awakening, and awareness that comes and sometimes at this point or soon after we seek support of some form…. As women we have a lot going on with our thoughts and feelings and sometimes it helps just to sort them… kind of like sorting the whites from the colours…. (oh my 21 year old daughter is going to correct me for assuming that women do washing… but it’s okay my husband does most of our washing these days….and yet I have an exceptional husband).

After the awakening comes I believe, a familiarisation… a getting to know you phase… where becoming familiar with our wise woman within begins…. Like getting to know an old friend that we have been apart from for a very long time….

During this time…. Our old self can attempt to pull us back… it feels risky stepping into these unknown waters…. This is normal and natural… like getting off a boat we have been on for days for a time we feel as if we are still on water when in actual fact we are on solid land…

During this time it is nurturing to spend time doing things that nurture her, the wise woman within and help her to feel safe…. This is a time when she needs to know that you now know she is there…. Maybe a bubble bath…. A journal…. Time in nature…. The sea…. Meditation…

Then after a time… she feels a little stronger…. She feels a little more confident…. She is beginning to know she is loveable that she has value and is valued….. As time moves on and she is nurtured and honoured by you…

 

~ Honouring Your Wise Woman Within ~

 

She comes to a beautiful space where ‘Knowing” occurs. In this space there are moments during your days when you experience knowing. This is a place of no thought. It is not even a feeling. It is a sense. A presence of knowing. If a decision is to be made you may find yourself knowing the answer without thinking about it at all….

And soon after … integration…. She is you…. You are here… as you always were and now you experience this… you are one….

The Wise Woman Within becomes a breath inside you… a pulsing of energy… feminine power…. And her power is quiet…. Mostly…. Her power is powerful in the most nurturing…. Honouring way….. It is almost as if she walks beside you, guiding…. Leading…. And yet she is within you…

Actually she is beside you, within you and is all of you and yet she can recede at times and then re-emerge….

And yet once rediscovered her presence will remain…. She has returned… you have returned… to your soul, to the very essence of who you truly are…
