Following Your Bliss: Listen To Your Inner Wild Woman

Editor’s Note: this is a guest post by Marie Tucker.

 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light; not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?”

~ Marianne Williamson

Yes it always comes back to that – follow your bliss.

Recently, when faced with the self-created dilemma of trying to figure out which direction my business is going into, I found myself struggling and struggling with trying to figure out where I should focus my energy.

And therein lies the problem. “Trying” or rather “Trying to figure out”. Those terms just reek of fear based thinking.

Fear that I will choose the wrong direction, fear that I will not be able to financially survive if I continue doing what I’m doing, fear that I will be miserable if I go back to a 9-5 job, fear that I’ll never break through the barriers I often feel I come up against, if I don’t pick one direction and focus on that, fear that I’m not good enough, fear that others were right “you are a dreamer”, “you are a good starter but never follow through”, fear that my father was right; “you can’t make a living doing that”, fear of being a starving artist, fear of being without electricity, fear of failure.

Wow. No wonder I couldn’t find an answer. The energy created in just the process of going through all those thoughts in my mind is enough to stop the changing of the seasons. No way!

In the midst of this crisis I talked to a friend and we came up with these questions:

What makes me feel most alive?

What is your bliss?

Well, when I’ve felt most alive is when I have been connected to the Goddess energy, when I feel I am embracing my inner Wild Woman Goddess. So what sparks those feelings into being?

When I’m creating and expressing myself artistically such as painting.

There is nothing like feeling driven to paint until 2am and you haven’t had any food since maybe noon, few bathroom breaks because you couldn’t stay away from the canvas too long. Paint in your hair and a swipe across your cheek, hands covered in a collage of colors, creating, creating, creating, expressing, expressing, and expressing something that someone (even if it’s only you) will fall in love with instantly and know it needs to go on their wall.

When I am in a community of women in celebration of life and in our femininity; a tribe of wild women who feel connected to the stars, to the waters of the oceans, to each other, to our true selves and our highest expressions of self.

Goddess music, goddess art, foods, drink, celebration, honoring, conjuring, calling in, and sending out all from the heart of the sacred divine feminine. My heart beats for you – my tribe of sisters.

When I have dirt under my fingernails from working with flowers and herbs {as I did so much last year, but not so much this year} I am bliss.

I remember back in 2009 getting a reading from someone who said they were communicating with who I believe was my paternal grandmother and my uncle and they wanted me to get my hands in the dirt, to garden. I felt that internal desire to do just that, but lacked the resources and knowledge to do that on my own just then.

So it took me a few years to get there, but oh when I did by luck {we moved to a new house which had already established garden beds of flowers, bushes and herbs}…. It was magickal.

The Goddess awoke with feeling the dirt under my nails and the worms I held in my palm without feeling grossed out. Walking out every day and seeing what new blossoms opened, what new scents were being released, what colors were being revealed. When I rediscover that magickal river of bliss that comes from working with Mother Nature I will feel again that feeling of oneness, of connection with all that is and will ever be.

When I am walking out in nature and hearing my footsteps along the path, the call of the birds and the clicking of the insects in the woods. I can hardly contain myself from dropping to the ground and hugging the earth.

Why do I hold back? Maybe because my boyfriend may find me strange {he probably won’t so the next time I get that urge, I will do just that!}. I can picture it in my mind so clearly, as though I have done this so many times before, and at times yes, when alone I have done just that.

I guess we just have to become comfortable with expressing our vulnerable selves enough to do what most will not do, even when we have the internal urge to do so, in the witness of others. So, as I sit here writing this I’m feeling the urge to go outside and just BE with wild nature.

What I learned was this…

I should just continue to follow my Bliss and being in a blissful state requires me to let loose my inner Wild Woman.
