Wise Women Spiral

“I begin at the center, says the wise woman seer. 

“I come from the chaos and the completeness at the center of the spiral.”
“ I am vital, moving, growing, unrestricted in resources, as I am born in the Wise Woman tradition.”
“In the natural flow of my expansion and enrichment, I encounter pain; I lose control; I die.”
“In the natural flow of my curiosity and play, I discover joy and wisdom. I am born.”
“Pain is inevitable, suffering optional in the Wise Woman tradition.”
 
“When I hurt (when my heart hurts, when my head hurts, when my shoulders hurt) I nourish myself: I nourish my heart, my head and my shoulders. I nourish myself and am strengthened, transformed and deepened; my vibrational rate increases.”
“I expand. I open my spiral. I ask myself, ‘How can I make this problem my ally? What is the gift of health / wholeness / holiness here?’”
 
“I gain energy with each sickness or problem. My range of resonance and my capacity to receive and to share increases every time I encounter pain and loss and make it my ally.”
“I ally myself with all that I resist and thus become whole. I regain my holiness. Every time I nourish myself in my pain, honor my distress, and love my uniqueness, my vibration is vitalized and the spiral gets bigger, and more open, and more forceful.”

Beauty
“This is about Beauty. The beauty you exude from within and the beauty you surround yourself with. My dears, the goddess radiates beauty everywhere she walks. Your piece is to create it all around you…”
“For Physical beauty I say to take the time to create as much beauty as the world can take. Revel in your own beauty. Indulge in colors that make you feel beautiful. Wear jewelry if it nourishes you.”
“You understand the essence of beauty. You are ‘woman’ and you are meant to express this gift. This is something to revel in. It is not the same as vanity. This is an expression of the divine beauty within you that seeks expression in everything that you do. So, be in your beauty my daughters. Be unafraid and be bold!”
