Slowly the Ancient serpent energy
Buried in the middle of the earth
Writhes and awakens…

Oh, this ancient magnetic force
Stirring and creating a vortex

An invitation for us to open

As waves of earthquakes rock the bodies
Of the wild women who say yes
To this ancient chaotic and potent force…

Bruised knees from surrendering

De-rubbled channels opened

Their yonis drink in this wisdom
Which potently infuses with the soul…

Where the ‘ancient wild one’ imparts its wisdom
Once lost, now rekindled…

Stirring passions, truths and boundlessness
In this conscious connection

Oh yes! This energy is here…
It is potent beyond words

The feeling of her once more
Dark and light balance she yearns to restore…

There is a yearning for this ancient energy to rise up from the centre of the earth. 

It’s such a potent life force, waiting, dormant. Our yoni is dormant – like this energy. The two need this connection, yearning to connect us once more to that woman so wise. So confident. So potent. Uncompromised in her natural state. Free to be how she was made to be. Free to flow with the tides in her life. Ruling over her inner worlds, and co- creating in the world around her…

Oh, there is another way…

And it’s coming…

Pulsing, spiraling… She embeds within me

All that is left is to surrender

She wants it all
To give my soul what it needs
To give that deep power

First is the cleaning
The subconscious fucked up

Previous life clearing
That the mind can’t fathom

Writhing in this ancient pain
Dipped into this pit of despair
Of grief, of deep, deep pain

Beyond… just so beyond…

This is the yes before the cleansing
It’s the yes to feel everything
Before going into deep transformation

She’s taking me so deeply within
That I can no longer ascertain
If it is within me or without

Or part of the fucked up collective

So embedded it runs through our veins

So deep,
and seemingly unending

Feeling everything

Again I sink
Again I feel…
Again, I feel a yes

Oozing from my soul

    Hell YES!!! Thank you!!! Yes to everything, yes to diving into the unknown connection, diving into HER soul, HER truth, HER love! Sitting in awe for every person who found her, to whom SHE appears. Sitting in deep reverence and humility. Some lines I wrote down in MS after a deepening process: “The dragons are my sons and my daughters, they are preparing you all to be able to hold me…You dont have a clue.”

    • ReWilding For Women on December 9, 2018 at 2:46 pm

      Hell YES! I see you! Thank you for saying yes. For entering the darkness. And your words!

    Thank you dear sister for the words of her awakening, your story, my story. I read the words and sobbed, not from grief but a release, a witnessing , an embodiment of her. I love your poetic litany, “bruised knees from surrender”, “It’s a yes to everything”, every word a prayer. Much love to you dear one. Blessed be.

    So much gratitude. This is such Truth! Thank you for writing and sharing. It is our time to finally arise ,from the depths of our most primal, embodied souls to all of who we truly are.

    I had this and felt this once. It’s been stolen from me. Somehow I lost it… know that stupid song that said it must have been love but it’s over now? Must have been good but I lost it somehow….that’s what losing it was like and I’ve been searching for it ever since . Since everyone is being dramatic and all .
    ..but it’s true. I was that force at one point and my life was sheer naked strength

    Thank you Elise for writing of the serpent. Now I feel permission is granted to share here-
    SHE came to me in a dream – flowing out from the mouth of a woman who has what I believe is an intimate relationship with her. My arm was stretched over my head reaching for the Colorado mountains. SHE entered me under my armpit, flowed through me and left me through my root chakra. SHE was returning to the earth. SHE did not show me her face. I was privileged to see her body and that is enough…or perhaps all I can handle now. When I woke she was still flowing through me and the woman. It was as if there was no end to her…

    • ReWilding For Women on December 10, 2018 at 3:30 pm

      Oh, beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing. How very potent ‘SHE’ is. I see you, Sister, and I’m with you in that our brains cannot seem to fathom the vastness of this glorious energy. The boundlessness… The feel that there is no end to it… Oh YESSS!!
      Sending love,

    Thank you for this trigger to delve deeper into a connection I have long known and felt for medusa.
    Since I was a teenager I had dreams and feelings that I was in some way connected to her. I didn’t quite understand but I continued to feel a presence deep within throughout my life. As an adult I have felt snakes are my kind of protector and now having a child she too has a deep connection to them. Whilst I was pregnant snakes crossed our path on many occasions, one even fell out of a tree we were sitting beneath. All instances we non-threatening, and more of a signal to show their presence. Now as my daughter grows she has a love of wildlife, particularly snakes…… I guess as I read this it triggered the deep connection to the serpent and medusa. Any suggestions on where to go from here would be welcomed 🙏

    • ReWilding For Women on December 13, 2018 at 5:16 pm

      Thank you so much for sharing…. I see you, woman! Beautiful….What a path for you to take! So ancient, so potent….
      In answer to your question, firstly feel into everything that is mentioned. Medusa is a beautiful way into the deep ‘serpentine’ or feminine energy, feels like she’s your door… Feel into exploring with Medusa, Lilith, Hekate and maybe Hygeia- themes of sexual healing and medicine woman (there are online workshops for these if you’re interested). Oh, and if you’re called to looking up ‘The Snake Goddess’ then go for it! Also, if you feel the call to get yourself to a Rewilding live event in 2019, the DO IT!
      Sending love,

    Wow I needed to hear this! Thank you so much for writing this! I got chills and could feel it to my core! My spirit is awakening and has been for four years now! Its time for this new energy from the earth to become me. Thank you!

    I too feel this deep rumbling from the core of the mother a deep raising as the mother twists and turns freeing herself from the restraints we have put on her … Together we rise

    • ReWilding For Women on December 26, 2018 at 5:56 pm

      Maiana, I feel you! Together we rise….. Thank you for taking the time to post this comment, beautiful.
