When looking to let out your wise and wild instincts, Wild Woman affirmations are a great place to start. Inspired by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ book, Women Who Run With The Wolves these affirmations will get you feeling wild, free, and totally uninhibited!
What is a Wild Woman?
Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes is known best for her wonderful book Women Who Run with the Wolves. She says:
Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women.From clarissapinkolaestes.com
The primary goal of the wild woman is to care for her soul, care for others in her tribe, and nurture her good instincts. She is curious, passionate, creative, and knows the value of herself beyond what the white, Christian patriarchy says. She knows her inherent worth.
A wild woman recognizes the things in her world that are meant to control her. For example, she knows the constant media bombardment of flawless, youthful women is meant to make her feel bad about herself. She knows the pressure from older generations to “move on” with life, or “suck it up” when she is grieving is meant to take away her emotions and her power.
Her instinctual nature is the best gift and she treats it as such.
