"For some women, this vitalizing 'taste of the wild' comes during pregnancy, during nursing their young, during the miracle of change in oneself as one raises a child, during attending to a love relationship as one would attend to a beloved garden."      

Women Who Run With the Wolves. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D. 

 

If there is one thing I wish to provide women is a platform for change. Motherhood is already a change. To put it lightly. What about on a deeper level.  

What if birth offered a opportunity to look at our parents and come the a conclusion about what hurt. If these things show themselves then we can transmute them. 

This is a time when you will cease be. The one who you were will be no more. 

A dialogue of life moving forward. The sacrifice begins.  

 

 

We can effort in a way that puts things to rest. Letting things go. Welcoming death. The death of our past. 

If we are open and honest with ourselves what is the way we must pave to start a new. 

We have a wild nature. How can it come out in motherhood. How much we can access our primal force of nature to ground our beings in simplicity. 

What twist of fate has led you to the fortune of having a child. Something sent from our creator. Blessed by you. 

You have been chosen. 

 


Knowing 

Be afraid of nothing -  

     you have within you     

     all wisdom        

     all power

      all strength  all understanding.                        

                           Eileen Caddy

There is information that comes from knowing. This is our innate wisdom. With the outpouring of love comes a gift from our higher self too good to ignore. We can find comfort in the idea that we always have access to this part of ourselves. It is a formidable force. Looking backwards when I am framing life in this way it changes everything. 


Bigger Than Us

"Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you, and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,  for they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, 
but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday."

 Kahlil Gibran

 

This is a prophet's guidance. I have noticed when I get out of my daughter's way her life opens up to her own choices. She is drawn to things in this world. I can decide for her or she can find her own way with guidance. 

This has worked for her in venerate experiences. She is a play write at fifteen. She was the youngest accepted into a paid internship in the 2016 JAW festival here in Portland.

I don't know what I would have picked for her if I didn't get out of the way. Maybe something more glamarous or something that would hold better job prospects. I can see that from this seed of who she really is will carry her through a lifetime. 

Cultural Standpoint      


Nourishment 

We are carriers of life passing on. We are leached from the beginning. And into breastfeeding the nutrients we have stored in our bones are given a priority to the other. 

I have cavities from nursing for two and a half years. I wish I knew this before. It is not a time for women to give themselves away and become depleted. 

 

 

 


Choice

I donate a percentage of my profits to women's health care in the U.S. and other countries. 

Women get to be free if they choose.
