“Half of me is filled with bursting words and half of me is painfully shy. I crave solitude yet also crave people. I want to pour life and love into everything yet also nurture my self-care and go gently. I want to live within the rush of primal, intuitive decision, yet also wish to sit and contemplate. This is the messiness of life – that we all carry multitudes, so must sit with the shifts. We are complicated creatures, and ultimately, the balance comes from this understanding. Be water. Flowing, flexible and soft. Subtly powerful and open. Wild and serene. Able to accept all changes, yet still led by the pull of steady tides. It is enough.”
Even the greatest mountains have cracks.
These are the places where Mother Earth has opened herself up to you. These are the places where the water runs free, straight from the source of her well. These are the places where the mountains are filled with trees and bushes, of the most luscious greens. These are the places where the terrain is wild, untamed, and free.
You can climb to the top of that mountain, to the place where the water never runs dry.
Do you want a drink? Clean, fresh, and nourishing. Water grants all of life!
The path is steep and potentially dangerous. It requires courage. It is not fit for everyone.
It is a heroines journey! The journey of your life!
Is the source of your heart’s well as pure as the water itself? Is your journey for the love of all — for the love of Her, and not just to make it to the top? If so, then you need not fear!
You will be protected by the mountains, the Maidens of the Well, Protectors of the Earth, and the Spirits of the Land.
You will be granted access to the Source of Life and you will be invited to drink of Her abundance, quenching you with the sweetest sensation — the joy of life running through your veins. Your body will writhe. Because deep down inside, you know you are untameable. Her nectar gives you access to your own wilderness — your own absolute freedom, and the full potential of your being!
You are the source of the well from which you drink.
