The Wise Woman
The Woman of Age is a symbol of inherent wisdom that comes from experience. She has lived through love, sorrow, hope, death, and fear, to gain a wise and confident spirit.
Through these experiences, she has learned the secrets of life and death and of the mysteries beyond this world. These Wise Woman were the healers, working in tune with Nature to cure ailments and imbalances.
She is the one to call upon when we need to allow a part of us to die. She is the elder priestess of the Goddess; the Grandmother whose words are few yet priceless in their wisdom.
The wisdom of the Wise One comes only after learning the lessons of non-judgment and compassion. Through these lessons, she becomes the balancing scales between light and dark and between life and death.
She is selfless, yet she loves herself. She is kind, yet she knows when to be harsh.
She is free, she is compassionate, and she is wise.
Only the Wise Woman can complete the journey to the Otherworld and birth the Child of Completion.
She is full of power. Her body is no longer fertile, but her mind is sharp and able.
She is the elder priestess of the Goddess.
The Wise Woman is associated with the element of water and the direction of the west – the land of the dead. She is a necessary force of destruction. She is the mysterious woman of age who possesses the knowledge of all worlds.
The main thing to remember about the Ancient one is she is the receptive and sensitive part of us, which we need for successful magick as well as personal wholeness.
This is a beautiful blend of oils that opens us to the shadow world where wisdom is found.
Place on the third eye to open the wisdom center, the heart to purge any wounds and heal the heart.
Rub the wrists together and breathe in the essence of the elder plant beings who have survived all passages of time and learned to maneuver through times of change.
