This is a self portrait. Raw. Exposed. Full. In my body. Shedding the autumn debris in preparation for the Crone season of Winter.
Bare boned. And ready.
And stepping into the regaining of our feminine, the re-union with shadow, itsn’t really talked about in spiritual practices.
No love and light here
When our energy is in balance it is a joyous and uplifting experience, but how often do we really allow ourselves as women to feel and experience true pleasure. And to experience this, means shedding. It means listening. It means the dark Yin. It means leaning into the shaowdy wells of death, grief, what needs to die, in order for balance to return.
We only have to look to nature to see her shedding in Fall, then as she enters the redundancy of winter, she works below the surface. to take stock, to renew in readiness for Spring bloom.
To visit Yin is to
See the The Moon in all of her phases
To feel the emotions, all of them
To express creativity
To birth life
To experience pleasure
To lean in, even when its painful, slowly and mindfully
Howl and whale!
To grieve and allow space for this
To commune with your wise ones
Use your voice
Tingles and sensations on the skin
Wild one, roam with me?
