A Wise Woman Is Many Things

A wise woman is many things. 
Look into the mirror 
and see the Wisdom of woman staring back at you. 
Within you lies a storehouse of information, 
as old as time itself. 
What keeps you from hearing the words of counsel 
She seeks to speak to you?

Under the blanket of many years of neglect, 
Wisdom calls out to us. 
We have muffled Her voice through layers of inattention. 
Seeking to silence Her voice through reason, 
logic, and accomplishment 
we have forgotten how to sit in Her presence 
and be filled with a sense of belonging and connectedness.

The earth is our womb, our place of becoming. 
In our ignorance and separation we have fought, 
like the twins Jacob and Esau wrestling in the womb, 
seeking to dominate one another, 
striving to see who will win. 
We will eventually emerge to find 
that there is room for each one of us.

Wisdom’s voice is crying out, 
waiting to be heard—longing to show us a different way of being. 
Peeling back the layers of over-doing, 
over-using, and over-analyzing 
we can hear the faint sound of Her voice, 
calling us back into balance and into relationship with All That Is.

Wisdom is the Divine Feminine. 
She is the voice of God’s Spirit—
the part of God that longs to live within us 
and be a guiding voice. 
She speaks softly
 and can only be heard when we quiet our busy minds 
and emotions
 and listen for the still, small voice. 
Developing a relationship with Wisdom
 begins by inviting Her into our hearts 
and making a space for quietness before God.

Deep treasures await us
 if we are willing to make a place for Her at our table. 
The beautiful promise awaits us: “Behold I stand at the door and knock. 
If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, 
I will come in and eat with them.”
 All we must do is set the table and open the door.
