She no longer fears the wolves.
She has learned how to howl and run like them.
She no longer envies the butterflies.
She has sprouted wings and lets the wind carry her where it may, unleashing her thirst for adventure.
She no longer fears the dark as her light shines brightest there.
She no longer questions where she belongs.
She is at home wherever her feet meet the Earth.
A child of Gaia, she stands firmly rooted in this body temple of hers. She reaches her arms toward the sky, welcoming the moonlight kisses on her skin. Her eyes dance with love and laughter and mischief, like a forest nymph she gleefully plays among her brother and sister trees.
The longing in her heart has been replaced with a burning desire to be ever closer to her Mother. She lays her bare flesh upon the dewy grass and lets her body sink into her Mother’s arms. Reborn, she now knows her strength lies within her own being. She is sovereign and each step she takes rings of the purity of knowing her Self.
No, she no longer fears all that she was taught to fear. She keeps them all in her garden now and the fear is not welcomed there. The moon, the wolf, the raven and owl, the shadows dancing in the cave of her Soul are her kin. She sees herself in their eyes, feels herself in the beating of their hearts, and relishes the company of Nature’s children.
For far too long she walked a path laid by others’ hands. Now her path is clear and laid by her own hands. No longer avoiding the jagged rocks, dark woods, and mountain peaks… her path drives straight through the heart of it all and it is here, where her bare feet touch the soil which was forbidden to her for so long, that she finally feels at home. It is here that she returns in her mind’s eye any time the chaos of modern life threatens to steal her peace and joy. She listens now, to the Earth and Her children, as they speak. Their songs carry her spirit and sometimes, when the moon is high and she feels called to return to the wood, you can hear her howl echo in the night.
She no longer fears the wolves, she has become them.
