In my life I have learned that the Divine Feminine Woman ages with grace, beauty and the wisdom to know that it is totally time to follow her own rules! Make-up, diets, and following the rules of the patriarchy are long since a thing of the past. She is wise within Herself. Woman unto Herself! She learns what is necessary to her well-being lies within. It is time to rest and grow the world soul. It’s winter. She hibernates and grows more and deeper wisdom.
From the Girl God Books: “When winter comes to a woman’s soul, she withdraws into her inner self, her deepest spaces. She refuses all connection, refutes all arguments that she should engage in the world. She may say she is resting, but she is more than resting:
She is creating a new universe within herself, examining and breaking old patterns, destroying what should not be revived, She is feeding in secret what needs to thrive.
Winter women are those who bring into the next cycle what should be saved. They are the deep conservators of knowledge and power. Not for nothing did ancient peoples honour the grandmother. In her calm deliberateness, she winters over our truth, she freezes out false-heartedness.
Look into her eyes, this winter woman. In their gray spaciousness you can see the future. Look out of your own winter eyes. You too can see the future.”
