Born to Be Wild

Wild thing, I think I love you
But I wanna know for sure
Come on, hold me tight, I love you


Oh, Natalia,

How long must I walk beside you? How many images and songs must I send to your mind, before you acknowledge what you know to be true? You are a Wild Thing.

One weekend in 2011, you lay yourself bare on a ridge in New Mexico, willing to meet yourself. You received my message: grasses, flowers, and mosses are as wild as herds of stampeding caribou and bold, roaring lionesses. You felt your wildness as woman emerging from earth. You perceived that your way of being unrestrained in pursuit of pleasure was perfect for you; that bending with the wind, rushing in torrents around standing stones, and sprouting green and beautiful from between crevices, are all manifestations of wild.

Then, you forgot. Your insight was swept away by the everydayness of living, by getting lost in internet rabbit holes, by caring for children, and feeding a family. You neglected, again and again, your wild essence.

Now can be the time when your wildness emerges, grows, and blossoms. The choice is, as always, yours. You have met the challenge of rocks and stones in your path. You’ve lain dormant in drought and through long winters. Now can be the springtime of your life. You can send a shoot from the seed.

True, the sprout will be soft and fragile. The seed could have survived for millennia. For the sprout, dangers abound. Know that the sun always shines on and from those who know they are ready and worthy.

You are a Wild Thing, Natalia. You have strength and courage. You have a natural propensity to survive, grow, and bloom. But you must choose, Natalia. You must choose.

Be brave, little one. Be brave.

Your White Tiger Aspect


Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing
Come on , Come on wild thing




Inspired by Lyn Thruman‘s October Writing Challenge: Writing the Wisdom of the Soul. I am expanding, evolving, shaking in my shoes, and preparing to write.

Prompt for October 13: Switch places with the lion and tap into the wildness that you normally keep controlled and placated.  Let your inner lion write a letter to explain where it needs more freedom to roam, where control could be lessened, and what the consequences could be if you follow its advice.
