Embracing Change: Wisdom Amidst Difficult Times

In our journey through life, we are bound to face challenging times. These periods of unrest can stir up feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, and even despair. However, as I have grown older and navigated these tumultuous waters, I have come to see these times as opportunities for profound inner growth and wisdom. This realization is the essence of my Tantric Crone journey.

In our society, ‘Crone’ is not always a term met with enthusiasm. It brings to mind outdated stereotypes of elderly women. However, in the spiritual context, a Crone is a woman who has moved past her mother stage and entered the third phase of her life. It is a period of reaping wisdom, of profound spiritual growth and understanding. The Tantric Crone embraces her age, her wisdom, and the intuitive knowledge that life’s experiences have gifted her.

When difficulties arise, they are not setbacks but rather stepping stones towards greater enlightenment. They are our teachers, providing invaluable lessons of resilience, acceptance, and inner strength.

How, then, can we navigate these challenging times and foster inner growth and wisdom? Here are some meditative practices that have guided me:

1. Embrace Change: Nothing in life is constant but change. Learning to accept change, rather than resisting it, allows us to flow with life’s current rather than against it. In your meditation practice, visualize yourself as a leaf on a river, carried by the currents of change. Feel the ebb and flow of life and become one with it.

2. Practice Mindfulness: When times are tough, it is easy to get lost in worries and anxieties. Mindfulness keeps us anchored in the present moment, allowing us to confront our challenges with a clear mind and steady heart. Practice mindfulness in your everyday activities. Stay rooted in the ‘here and now.’

3. Cultivate Compassion: Difficult times often bring out the best in people. Cultivate compassion, not just for others, but also for yourself. Be gentle with your feelings and emotions. Self-compassion creates an inner refuge of peace and serenity.

4. Seek Wisdom in Solitude: Solitude offers a sanctuary where we can reflect, heal, and grow. Embrace moments of solitude, using them for self-reflection and connection with your inner self.

5. Connect with the Divine Feminine: The Tantric Crone embodies the Divine Feminine. Use your meditation practice to connect with this divine energy. Picture it as a warm, nurturing light within you, guiding you towards wisdom and strength.

Remember, difficult times are not meant to break us, but to shape us. Embrace your inner Tantric Crone and allow these challenges to guide you towards profound inner growth and wisdom.

Trust the journey, for it is in the unfolding that we truly find ourselves.

In love and light,

A Tantric Crone
