ART: UNKNOWN

“Although shedding is difficult for all of us, for a woman to shed what has falsely hidden her more authentic experience is a great liberation.
“The freedom felt after the loss of persona is spiritually nourishing, and the creativity released from within can be enormous, allowing her to create herself in a more ‘true’ form. This is the process I am calling female shamanism—an ongoing shedding of false selves in favor of the active development of more authentic forms of expression.”
“The snake is the ancient totem of women all over the world and speaks to the lunar nature of feminine biological evolution. A woman’s natural timing is cyclical, circular, spiral, nonlinear, and non-rational. Women need to replace their crystallized┬áidentities, as these shatter or dissolve through the shamanic process, with a deliberately fluid ego-identity.
“If a woman can begin to appreciate and cultivate the value of an identity that is always changing, continually in flux, never completely solid, she begins to align with what shamans and Buddhists describe as ‘reality.’
“Those with the sight to see into the world of energy, see that everything is made of energy, and energy is always in motion. The rest of the world is practicing to become able to accept and tolerate this vision of reality, which is in conflict with the one we were originally taught to believe.”
