The Earth Will Heal All Wounds

By | Walk the Path, Wisdom Blog | No Comments

Snow Blanketing a TreeAs I sit and write this, it is snowing outside. And, like the past two years, my health has been a struggle for the past two months. No broken bones this time, thankfully, but four head colds, walking pneumonia, and a chest infection have kept me down for most of the past two months.

I’ve tried not to let it get to me, though. You see, I’ve learned much in the last year as I have walked with the Goddess. And one thing is clear: everything happens for a reason. My various illnesses are but another of life’s lessons. Maybe you too have been dealing with health issues, or maybe it’s a childhood trauma you never really dealt with, a job loss, a move, or a divorce. Just know that there is a reason behind everything we call to us in life, even if it doesn’t make sense at the time it happens.

Fortunately for us, Winter is the perfect time to go within and heal. For the next three months, we will do just that: explore past wounds and give ourselves time to really and truly heal.

To begin our journey of healing, I’d like to explore the element of Earth. It may seem like a funny time to work with an Element that is all but dormant, but just because you can’t see flowers blooming and grass growing, doesn’t mean nothing is occurring. The Earth cycles, just as we do throughout our lives. The difference between us and Earth is that She regularly takes time out of her busy schedule to focus on healing. A lesson we could all learn from!

The North

Each Element has a direction and Earth’s direction is North. North is associated with the qualities of wisdom, adulthood, will, manifestation, responsibility, giving, and nurturing. It is grounded and solid – think frozen tundra. Yet, underneath the ice, Earth is manifesting healing at a profound level. In Native American circles, the North is associated with vision questing, a time for examining (or undertaking) life’s challenges so that you can learn from them and emerge a better person on the other side.

Winter

As each Element has a directional association, it is also associated with a time of year. Earth and North are associated with Winter, a time of death, hibernation, and regeneration. We must let go of what no longer serves us, sit with it in quiet contemplation, decide how we would like our lives to be from now on and allow ourselves to be reborn.

 

Inner Goddess Wisdom Tip:

Write down everything you feel has been holding you back on a piece of paper. Burn it. This powerful act of letting go can help jump start your healing process.

What does being an Everyday Goddess mean to you?

I feel that being an everyday Goddess is a state of mind and spirit that brings the importance of the feminine to the forefront with confidence, love, nurturing, and empowerment. This understanding of self brings a powerful energy to the planet as we are in a shifting culture and consciousness.

At what age did you awaken to the presence of the Divine Feminine and would you describe it as a sudden awakening or a gentle unfolding?

I feel that I became aware of my feminine power recently in my forties. Though I’ve always felt a distinct pull from spirit and universal energy, I was on a path that did not allow for exploration of my truth and authenticity. The freedom I feel now has served me in so many ways, including self-confidence, purpose, authenticity, and connections to others.

What roles in your life had to transform in order for you to live authentically?

I had to stop continually living for and making decisions based on what others thought of me. Though I still have tendencies to analyze my actions and thoughts, my life has changed from the inside out. I now value myself and self-care enough that it takes priority. I feel that I have much more work to do in this area, however.

What have been some of the greatest inner gifts you’ve experienced since stepping into your feminine power?

I have experienced a huge shift in my attitude about myself. I believe that I am worthy of love and happiness. I also know that I have the power to change my life and to affect the world. I realize that there are no limitations to my growth and change.

Can you share some of your favorite sacred feminine rituals?

I have really been enjoying dancing and movement lately. It is helping me to connect to my sensual side and to my body in a way that brings about confidence and self-love. I also love to connect to nature, animals, and spirit. This allows me to be present and bring myself to a more centered state.

 

Is there a particular Goddess that you are intimately drawn to and why?

Though I am just now getting familiar with Goddesses, I do feel most drawn to the Indian Goddesses, Saraswati and Durga. Saraswati is one who shows me that I have a voice and how important it is that I use it to create love, peace, and growth in the world. Durga shows me that I am powerful and have the ability to fight for our world and myself.

 

Is there a personal message that you would like to share with women?  

My message to women is one of empowerment and clarity. I want them to know that they can be everything they’ve dreamed of being, that they can fulfill their dreams, define purpose and live happily. I believe that creating an improved mindset is the first key to transformation for every area of life. We are the only ones who will ultimately change our lives.
