Rewilding: What Does it Even Mean?

For most people, it's hard to identify with this word. Rewilding. It has been so misused.

"What the heck is rewilding? Wild? Doesn't that sound like some kind of animal thing?" I hear people say. Or they think of a someone crazed & scary, like characters in movies or books they've read.⁠ ⁠ But, in truth - we are all wild, at our core.⁠ ⁠

Rewilding simply means coming back to who we are born to be, before societal limitations, BS patriarchal programming, & popular culture got the better of us.⁠ ⁠ From the moment we are born we are slowly being stripped of our wildness. Of our innocence. Of our fierce truth. Of our natural expression.⁠ ⁠ 𝐖𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐨𝐨 𝐩𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐮𝐥, 𝐚𝐬 𝐰𝐨𝐦𝐱𝐧, 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐥𝐞𝐟𝐭 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐝.⁠ ⁠ But did you know that it is actually our nature to be wild? ⁠ ⁠ To live according to the rhythms of the seasons and the moon⁠.⁠ ⁠ To have a relationship with plants and animals outside of having them as house decor and pets. ⁠ ⁠ To have an intimate relationship with our bodies, with s£x, with pleasure, and with pain. ⁠ ⁠ To welcome & express EVERYTHING in our range of humxn emotions.⁠ ⁠ I am so inspired to create everlasting change - for myself & the fem collective. I am so passionate about this work: rewilding. About the reclamation of our sovereign wild selves, as womxn.⁠ ⁠ Sister, if you have been feeling a little fog-brained recently, or feeling a bit off; you know there's something not quite right... It might be because you are slowly realising that the life you have been sold isn't the life destined for you.⁠... (oooh TRUTH BOMB!⁠)⁠ ⁠ The life you are living isn't turning you on like you thought it used to.⁠ You're starting to see beyond the veil. You're feeling into & tuning into what lies within.⁠ ⁠ You're journalling more, you're spending more time to yourself, you're listening - deeply. And you're hearing the call.⁠

⁠What do you think about dedicating yourself to a life that involves radical self love, orgasms, s£x, blood, mess, chaos, emotions, darkness, & so much pleasure instead...⁠?⁠

Pussy-guided.⁠ Pleasure-led.⁠ Powerful.⁠ ⁠

I think when we start to realise just how much we have suffered because of the immature dominant toxic masculine culture [residue from the Patriarchy] - THEN we can start to make the changes knowing all the facts. Knowing what is HIS-story & what is HER-story.⁠ ⁠ Then we can start to undo what we've inherited, challenge what we've accepted as gospel. Realising that the way things are isn't the way they have to be, trusting the feminine, dropping into the body; rewilding.⁠ ⁠ 𝑹𝒆𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 is all about creating a new paradigm. Of bringing balance and harmony back to the world we live in, starting of course with ourselves. ⁠Offering a hand out for the masculine to rise with us. ⁠ 𝑹𝒆𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 is about stepping up into our full power as womxn, taking back the reins of our Sovereignty from the “powers” who've held it for too long now.⁠ ⁠ 𝑹𝒆𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 isn't always easy when you start. And there's no going back. Once you realise how things are - and how things can be, you'll want to peeling back the layers, stripping down to your core. You'll recognise yourself again, finally.⁠

I shared a concern with a mentor on a session the other day that sometimes I feel like I'm a bit too "shouty" and "fuck the patriarchy-y". She said if that's what I'm passionate about, then I should fully own it. ⁠ ⁠ 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐲 𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐮𝐚𝐠𝐞. 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐡𝐨𝐰 𝐈 𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐚𝐤. 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐲 𝐦𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐠𝐞.⁠ ⁠

It is this entrenched patriarchal programming that makes me afraid to speak too loud sometimes. To disrupt the status quo. To shake things up. I am afraid of "loosing" people or them thinking I'm just an "angry feminist".⁠ ⁠ It was such a relief to be reminded to stand in my own truth & own my wild (as I often tell others!) - because I can't honestly think of way to sugar coat what I have to say. I can't really imagine compromising my message, really, for fear of putting people off.⁠

I can’t imagine un-wilding. I've already had to un-learn everything else.

Connecting with the Wild Womxn has been pivotal along my journey. She has allowed me a way of being that I didn't know existed before:

radical freedom⁠

wild abandon⁠

rich sensuality⁠

electric sexuality⁠



reconnection to Self⁠

inner peace⁠

deep listening⁠

She has taught me how to stay in my wild feminine at the same time as dance with the masculine, to stay true to my own nature & remember who She is / I am, while channelling my ambition & devoting to work that is purpose-full & passion-filled.⁠

So as we approach the end of the year, I offer you some reflection questions to journal:

How connected do I feel to my body now, than at the start of the year?⁠

How nurtured does my Wild Woman feel like as we approach 2020?⁠

At what point did I feel my most magnetic?⁠

How did 2019 allow me to step more into my power?⁠

My sexuality was expressed as / in / through ______ this last year?⁠

What energies was I able to tap into?⁠

When / where did I feel fear?⁠

What were (or continued to be) my biggest triggers?⁠

What was my biggest growth?⁠

The lesson I learnt that has served me the most has been _______?⁠

There are just a few days left to sign up to 𝐖𝐢𝐥𝐝 𝐅𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐖𝐚𝐲 𝐆𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐩 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐦 where we will commit to prioritising & working with your own feminine energies, to dancing with your masculine, & stepping fully into who you are, in your Wild, and claiming what it is you want for 2020.

I would so love to journey with you into the new year. If you'd like to learn more about the program, what's involved, who is it for, pricing, & loads more info: click here.
