It was the peak of July’s full moon when I met her.
The Dark Mother… The Crone… Lady Divinorum… She has many names, but its still the same spirit.
She is the stinging you feel from a black widow bite. The venom you feel taking over your blood stream from the snake. The poisonous plants you know to stay away from. The shadow that creeps behind you when you’re walking alone at night. She is where traditional witchcraft comes from. And she lives in the realm where all your nightmares are born. She is the shadow.
Her presence is extremely intimidating. If you’re one who likes to feel safe and in control, then do not call on her. If you approach her with c**kiness and a dominating energy, she would love nothing more than to put you in your place. She is a trickster. What looks like chaos to us is divine order in her eyes. She is wise, fierce, and a very unconventional teacher. She is to be respected and honoured.
Above all, she is divine. Absolutely beautiful. I am madly in love with this spirit. She is the most mysterious, and fascinating yet terrifying spirit I have ever connected with. The furthest thing from my comfort zone. She is bizarre and needs not to explain herself to you. She owes you nothing. She is a beautiful reminder that spirit is wild and untamed. She is so humbling to show you that you do not have it all figured out. And if you’re brave enough to surrender to her, let all of your fears engulf you, she will teach you about darkness. And your perspective about fear and shadow will be forever changed. You will be transformed and become more whole.
What is light without shadow?
The eternal dance between these two is the most beautiful love story in existence.
Now that this communication has opened up to me I cannot wait to understand her and work with her energy more. She is so luring and mesmerizing. But be cautious, she is not for the naive or faint-hearted. 😉
