In a society that often celebrates youth and beauty, it’s easy to forget the value of feminine age and wisdom. The crone archetype represents the culmination of a woman’s life experience and wisdom, her growth towards living authentically, honouring her intuition, sensuality and awareness. It’s about valuing the pleasures of the body and the senses, and using this feminine knowledge to guide and mentor others. The crone is a powerful force of transformation, able to help others find their way through difficult times and emerge stronger on the other side.
As woman age, we become more in tune with our bodies and our desires. We become more comfortable with our sensuality and more confident in expressing our needs and wants. Embracing the crone in us means using this knowledge to live a more fulfilling and satisfying life, both intellectually and sensually.
So how do we embrace the crone archetype? It starts with valuing our experiences and insights, gaining confidence in our voices, and using our inner knowledge to guide us. It means moving through life with dignity, sensuality and awareness, saying no to people that do not serve our higher purpose, and to do the things which bring us enjoyment in life. We must be willing to express the things that anger and outrage us in a constructive, manner, respecting the emotions and passions we may feel. We must be willing to forgive others and ourselves. We must be willing to commit time to self-examination and reflection.
Transforming ourselves quietly into the respected crone archetype representing a powerful force of sensual knowledge, wisdom, and feminine power. Embracing this aspect of ourselves can lead to a more fulfilling and satisfying life, both intellectually and sensually. So let’s welcome the crone in us and tap into the power of guidance, mentorship, and sensuality to share with our families, friends, and community.
Welcome, the Crone.
