Rewilding

Rewilding

I just finished a new drawing – part of this newer theme I’ve been dancing with. I like how Clarissa Pinkola Estes relates the wolf to the archetypal Wild Woman Self inside each of us. So the idea here is choosing to feed my inner wild self, which in turn feeds me; allowing myself to receive wisdom from my wild inner self, and showing thanks by letting her come out and play. Giving and receiving. A river of communication. The two fractionated selves slowly merge into a whole self.

Let yourself be what ya are and feel what ya feel and do what you feel moved to do. Sing and scream and shake and love and defend and feed and dance and dig and rest and snarl and spin and laugh and rejoice, rejoice, rejoice.

Listen to your gut.

Let yourself out to play.

Stop thinking so damn much, and just feel for a moment.

Collect the bones of your life and sing over them.

Feel the Earth holding you up.

Bare your teeth in a crazy grin.

Open the lines of communication.

Rewild yourself.
