“Within every woman there lives a powerful force,
filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing.
She is the Wild Woman … but she is an endangered species.
For though the gifts of wildish nature belong to us at birth,
society’s attempt to “civilize us into rigid roles has muffled the deep, life-giving messages of our own souls.”
Good morning beautiful W3,
The quote above was written by the publisher of our Summer Book Club selection Women Who Run With The Wolves (Random House).
I wanted to share it with you this morning purely as a reminder …. a mantra …. a battle-cry (if you need it) …. an affirmation, validation, an acknowledgment.
Within every woman there lives a powerful force
It might not feel like it every moment of every day, I know that. And we most certainly can relate to being “civilized into rigid roles” can’t we? And at the same time, we get to celebrate a new day. We get to celebrate choice!
I made the choice nearly a decade ago now that the message of my soul was important and I needed to listen. It was the only way I knew at that time of how to survive …. my life intact.
That brings to mind the quote from Jane Fonda …
“It took me a long, long time to realize we are not meant to be perfect;
we are meant to be whole” Jane Fonda
And it’s not a simple or easy business. Not today where so much noise and responsibility, chaos and obligation, pressures and exhaustion, have contributed to a downright numbness to our emotions, to our instincts, our creativity, and our knowing.
A dismissal of our Wildness.
A disrespect of our Wisdom.
But you are here now W3 ~ in a place and a space where all of those sacred pieces of you are not only revealed like the precious jewels they are, but recognized, honoured and celebrated.
And here you are surrounded by other Wild and Wise Women – a species who insists on living boldly – who we are bringing back from the brink …. of extinction … together.
So make no mistake … within YOU lies a powerful force.
Care to go about the business of setting her free? 😉
Me too, so stay with us ~ we truly are going to do this together. xoxo
You Are SO Loved,
PS. Yes, you can still join the Wild and Wise Summer Book Club!
PPS. We made our draw last week for a winner of a personally selected gift from me to one of the W3 on this list – the winner was Kate McComb BUT we have still not heard back from Kate.

If we don’t hear from you … we will be selecting a new winner (we sure don’t want you to miss out Kate … so send that email!) 😉
