In most cultures over the ages the patriarchy have repressed women to the extent that we are no longer in touch with our deepest primordial selves. Our instinctual natures, the seat of our souls and our root chakra energies have been under siege and it’s high time we work on getting back in touch with the wild woman within. I am not implying that we must toss the baby carriage. Not at all, but we must dig down and ignite that soul-fire, be true to all of our inner natures so that we can be well balanced individuals connected with the earth, the higher powers and with each other. There is a big difference between being subservient and being true to our nurturing natures. Subservience comes from social pressure and fear. Nurturing comes from the heart and soul with love.
As women, we know that we have the genetic programming to ensure the survival of our species. Strong urges to procreate are instilled within as well as the nurturing aspect that comes along with creation. We must learn to use this powerful force in a grander way. Let us harness this creative energy to nurture not only our own progenitors but also the earth and world around us. When we take this leap, expand this energy to encompass our brothers and sisters of the earth; we are making the evolutionary step to a higher consciousness.
Our nurturing natures are an excellent and easy place to initiate our growth for the greater good.
Many myths surrounding the essence of the wild woman show that the repression and rejection of the creative life force, our instinctual essence can twist and turn that force into destructive and crazy energy.
The vital, wild life energy is suppressed and broken down by the civilizing of children at an early age. This transaction of repressing the spontaneous actions is the beginning of the end of our wild intuitiveness. Social systems and cultural influences govern the extent of how deeply the creative, intuitive, life energy is suppressed. It seems the more we disconnect from our natural worlds, the more we are alienated from our instinctual and wild natures.
Yes, we do need to behave and control some of our urges if we are to live together in a society without harming others or ourselves. But with that, we must learn to allow ourselves to maintain our connections with the elements and our basic life FirePower. A good friend of mine always said “Don’t should on yourself”. Does it come from the heart or from obligation and what society expects from you? We could avoid many illnesses and bad relationships if we just act and “behave” true to our inner natures or heart’s desires.
It may take years of affirming and reprogramming our conscious mind to let our passions flow.
The first step you can take when you feel a need to do something creative, or something for yourself is to “just do it”. Catch yourself when you constantly put the paperwork or the laundry ahead of your soul time. Affirm that it is important to feed your wild-self and it is a must to nurture yourself as well as your loved ones.
The next time you see the children running through the park and think, oh to be young again, get up out of your seat and run with them. One day I was running and twirling with my daughter and her friends at the park where I noticed a mom waiting for her kids in her car. Her daughter stopped and watched us for a couple minutes and then went to her car and pulled her mommy out. She followed her daughter to the swings; the two of them played, laughed and had a good time. I caught the other mom’s eye and we shared a moment of pure wild woman bliss.
Your sexual soul urge is deeply connected to your instinctual nature. By tapping into your intuitive self you can relax and let your sexuality free. Feed your wild woman. Take care of her. Dream, fantasize, and create your own reality. Get in touch with the part of yourself that is afraid to move onward and upward. Most of all have fun, experiment and get to the root of your being. Let it out! Make sure you have some quiet reflection time to listen to yourself and tune into your needs. Then make them a reality. No one is going to do it for you!
