September has been really big for me. There has been much shifting and coming into my own, after the challenges of August. How about you?
This September I’ve had groups and people asking me to speak, trusted friends have asked me to co-create workshops with them, and I’ve allowed myself to step into the role of mother to wild women with wounded inner children. I think it has a lot to do with allowing myself to connect more and more with my own inner child, li’l kacky. In letting her speak, I’ve discovered she’s feisty and sassy and sometimes as mad as hell. Other times she is filled with love and tears and just wants to be held and comforted, for being the precious child she is.
Just writing that sentence, makes my eyes fill. She is just so darned grateful to be acknowledged. Do you feel it too? Does the little girl inside of you cry and rage for attention, and then become the sweetest light when you give her what she needs?
That was us as children my lovelies... So much pain and sadness, and misunderstanding that makes us feel so bad and unworthy of love and happiness as adults.
Seriously, it just breaks my heart to think that the beautiful angels inside of you and me are hurting so much. When I think of her this way, it has been so much easier to be tender to myself. We can be the mother to our little girl that we never had as children. We can help her to feel safe, protected, loved.
The wildchild within
Last week I realized that our inner child is part of the Wild Woman within each of us. This Wildchild was born into our physical body as a perfect being that was completely and unadulteratedly herself. Pure.
That beautiful little girl we are is still in there.
We cannot separate them, but, we can integrate the Wildchild with the Wild Woman to more fully realize who we are. We simply need to love, nurture, and protect our Wildchild, so she can help us be who we were meant to be.
I’ve been given the information from Spirit that there is one more part of the fully realized Wild Woman within each of us — the Crone. I can’t wait to see what she has to say and bring to this awesome party!
I invite your wildchild to play!
In the 7-Day Wild Woman Journaling Challenge, which begins Monday, September 25th, I’m refreshing the content to include some Wildchild work as well. There will be a special invitation to those who desire to feel pure and brave and ready to uncage their Wild Woman to experiment with me — by allowing your own little girl to tell us what she needs. This is the last call for this session of the Challenge:
Discover your SELF at Journaling to the Deep
JOURNALING TO THE DEEP

In Journaling to the Deep, you will get in touch with your Wild Woman through a series of journaling questions, group discussion, and one-to-one sessions. For more information:
