Though a thought-provoking and lovely ode to the awakened woman, I found that some of this post did not resonate with me. A man who chooses an awakened woman will not necessarily go through a fiery spiritual transformation. That does not mean he will wish for a different kind of woman. I think of myself as a fairly awakened woman. I hope my blog reflects a spiritual awakening. I have a loving, thoughtful, and intelligent fiance. However, he is not at all spiritual. We have been together for over four years and that has not changed. Perhaps we are an odd couple as a witchy daydreamer and a scientifically-minded, “seeing is believing” type man. However, we accept each other as is even though we challenge each other’s natures.
I also do not resonate with the link between an awakened woman and a wild woman. I am sure those descriptors can be linked, but I am both awakened and fairly tame. I feel as though part of my soul’s journey is to practice patience. I seek as much calmness as possible. I pick my battles wisely, and I bite my tongue when I realize that speaking will not help. Sometimes pushing buttons is called for. Other times pushing buttons is an act of impatience. I can quietly walk beside my man when he needs someone to listen instead of speak (even though being quiet can be a challenge for me). That being said, he does not expect or require me to be a quiet, timid sort of woman. A woman can tame herself a bit for the sake of peace and energy preservation without discrediting the Sacred Feminine. Look at the imagery in the Strength card in a tarot deck. The woman pictured is not screaming “I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME ROAR!” She has a gentle, quiet strength that soothes the lion.
Perhaps you really click with the article I linked. If you do, that is fine. Experiences and perceptions differ. I can only share the view from where I am standing. Blessed be, y’all.
