the power of wolves

February 17 2016 | Blog

In Native American Culture, everything is connected. Everyone and everything is linked to each other. They believe that people are connected to animals, to the earth, and to the sky. Are you the Owl? The  Eagle? The Salmon? The Buffalo? What leads you through this life? What's your Spirit Animal? Mine has always been the wolf, not only because I have a longing for the wild but because they embody everything that I admire. And just when I thought I couldn't admire them any more I discover that they will help to heal the earth, if only we let them xx

"Healthy wolves and healthy women share certain psychic characteristics: Keen sensing, playful spirit and a heightened capacity for devotion. Wolves and women are relational by nature, inquiring, possessed of great endurance and strength. They are deeply intuitive, intensely concerned with their young, their mates and their pack. They are experienced in adapting to constantly changing circumstances; they are fiercely stalwart and very brave." Dr Clarissa Pinkola-Estes 'Women who run with the wolves'.

The power of the wolf brings forth instinct, intelligence, appetite for freedom, and awareness of the importance of social connections. This animal can also symbolize fear of being threatened and lack of trust. When the wolf shows up in your life, pay attention to what your intuition is telling you.

"We are all filled with a longing for the wild. There are few culturally sanctioned antidotes for this yearning. We were taught to feel shame for such a desire. We grew our hair long and used it to hide our feelings. But the shadow of Wild Woman still lurks behind us during our days and in our nights. No matter where we are, the shadow that trots behind us is definitely four footed." #womenwhorunwiththewolves
