The Wild Feminine

Ever since I could remember there was something inside me more powerful than myself.

A feeling of sexual curiosity, feminine energy, deep, rooted self-love and confidence that I didn’t

know what to do with. It started to become quite innate, rather normal and comfortable up until

people and media began telling me what to do with that energy, how to oppress my sexual

desires and who I should be other than myself – WILD.

I used dance as a way of expressing that sensual goddess-like flame inside me. Something I

knew that was a lot stronger in me than the young women I surrounded myself with. It wasn’t

something I talked about or could even comprehend. I could just feel it, waiting to be unleashed.

At times this wild feminine would start to rise to the surface and I grew smarter at ways to keep

those urges submerged. For what though? For who? Someone else’s comfort? Because it was

morally right?

As years went on and more oppression took place I noticed the wild feminine in me only grew

stronger. It would surface unexpectedly and I liked the taste of it. I wanted more of it. It gave me

a sense of coming home to the person I always thought I knew and familiarized myself with. I

began letting go of the judgment of others. Letting go of what society considers safe and

pleasant. I wasn’t born that way. These fibers within me hold stories, truth, desires, strength,

and a rebel cause to do what I came here to do. – Be WILD.

I now embrace HER, confide in HER, encourage HER to come out and play. I know the women

who came before me would be proud. I’ve learned to use this newfound power, vulnerability and

voice to reach others trapped in their own oppression. I could not have been freed without the

help of my sisters. This tribe of wild feminine is growing. We are coming forth in this new age

cleansing ourselves from the years of patriarch. The time is now. RISE UP, RELEASE,

EMPOWER… the wild feminine is waiting for you to love her and show her to the world.


 

 

 

 

 

Wolves and women have much in common. Both share a wild spirit. Women and wolves are instinctual creatures, able to sense the unseen. They are loyal, protective of their packs and of their pups. They are wild and beautiful. Both have been hunted and captured. Even in captivity, one can see in the eyes of a woman, or a wolf, the longing to run free, and the determination that should the opportunity arise, whoosh, they will be gone.
