[MUST READ] Wild Women Rising

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Adonya

There comes a time in our lives when something crosses our path, and touches us so deeply, that we cannot help but be forever changed.

Wild Women Rising: Powerful Poems and Reflections to Heal and Uplift A Woman’s Heart did just that for me.

This book was made available to me as part of my Kindle Unlimited subscription.. but had it not been, I would have purchased. Hell!  I am going to buy anyway because it is SO worth it!

Anyhoo, I cracked the book open last night, and as I read the words of the first poem, I was immediately moved to tears.  It was as if the author, Clare Gately, intuitively knew that it was those words I needed to hear (read) in that moment.

Less than two hours later, I read the words of the last page.

As I closed the book, I was a bit taken aback to find that I no longer felt empty or less than. I was so f**kin’ fired up, that a few minutes later, I began reading the book again!

And let me tell you something… the second time was equally yummylicious!

Natalie Cole is still singing her song, Wild Women Do, in my head, and it is no longer the beat that has captured my attention. It is the powerful lyrics!

It has been twenty-five years since this song debuted, and I finally understand the lyrics… at a cellular level! I guess it helps to be in the right state of mind when it comes to appreciation. 😉

Reading Wild Women Rising really helped me to see the deeper meaning in Natalie’s message.

Wild women do
And they don’t regret it

You tell me you want a woman who’s
As simple as a flower
Well, if you want me to act like that
You’d better pay me by the hour

Don’t want to travel in the danger zone
Take another number
Don’t want a lover who can hold her own
Baby, step aside if you don’t want to ride
Because

Wild women do and they don’t regret it
Wild women show what they’re goin’ through
Wild women do what you think they’ll never
What you only dream about wild women do

You think that love is a vision of
A princess in a picture
Well, let me tell you something, little boy
You wouldn’t know love if it hit ya

Scared of someone who is off the wall
Kickin’ and a screamin’
Don’t you want a lover who can do it all?
Listen to me, Jack, I ain’t holdin’ back
‘cos

Wild women do and they don’t regret it
Wild women show what they’re goin’ through
Wild women do what you think they’ll never
What you only dream about wild women do

Come on and wild with me, baby
Everybody come on
Everybody get wild

Wild women do and they don’t regret it
Wild women show what they’re goin’ through
Wild women do what you think they’ll never
What you only dream about wild women do

Like Wild Women Rising, this song sends a message to the world that a woman in her power is a beautiful thing. So, if someone cannot handle our heat… they had best get out of our kitchens! The time has long passed for us to stop playing small, so that others can accept us at the level of their small mindedness.

Like Wild Women Rising, this song is an anthem for all the women… telling us to love our emotions, embrace our magnificence; and shine, shine, SHINE!

I look forward to reading Wild Women Rising again. The poems were powerful, beautiful, transfixing, and soul-reaching.

Clare spoke directly to my Soul through the Divine Feminine within her. What a gift she is to us all.

I am so grateful to have listened to the guidance that led me to this book.

Clare asks…

  • Do you sometimes feel like there is something missing in your life but you are not sure what it is?
  • Are you fed up carrying old baggage and long to let it go?
  • Do you wish to reach your potential in every area of your life?

Wild Women Rising is a book that speaks to you of the power and beauty you have within you; waiting to arise.

It holds out a hand to you to help you release the past and step into your power.

It reconnects you with the wild aspect of your femininity that will free you from much outdated conditioning and repression.

This book is a book that will whisper to your heart and encourage you to shine in the way you long to.

Wild Women Rising is a call to all women to begin a journey to freedom, empowerment and heartfelt juicy living.

Wild Women Rising will change how you perceive yourself as well as how you offer your gifts to the world!

I thank you for rising to the occasion!
