She is the expression of the divine feminine within all of us. She walks on the earth gently with beauty and grace. She knows the world is her creation as she dreams of her world into being. She knows her true soul’s purpose and lives each day blossoming into the path she was meant to walk.
She is in harmony with the natural rhythms of life and the cycles of the moon, oceans, and stars. She walks barefoot on the moist Earth and sees clearly through the dark, embracing the sweetness of the air as the sun sets and the silence of the night reveals its secrets.
Her womb is the ultimate source of creativity, the dynamic flow of life force energy. The sacredness of her nature is expressed through love and magnified in her relationships with others and the natural world.
When she becomes pregnant with the life of a baby within, she radiates as she has never before. Her aura glows and vibrates with her two heartbeats and is felt from all that surrounds her. The wisdom within her ripens as her belly becomes full. This ancient knowledge seeps into her skin from the soil beneath and dances out in the harmony of her voice, felt in the warmth of her actions and is known in the child within. This child is born into the life of a sage.
