Women who run with the wolves – not so easy! It’s hard to be a shiny person. A woman who runs with the wolves, even fellow sisters, often do not accept the sexually outspoken, beautiful yin-ness of the ‘wolfy’ being. And it can be hard to find a wolf pack to run with.
Many wolf women are wild because they are unbalanced – just like many quiet women. It’s just that the quiet women – the ones beaten and bruised – manage to fly under the radar as it is more acceptable to be a quiet survivor, especially if you are a woman. Passive aggressive wildness is the current norm, particularly in the professional world and the world of business. Out front, straight out behavior is generally not so acceptable. While the quiet ones have to learn to have a voice, wolfy women have to find outlets for their voice, as “muggle” society has little room for the wolfys who are singing with the sister moon.
Being a wolf woman has pitfalls. Many want to hang with them, hoping some of the wolfi-ness will rub off. Wolf women make everybody feel brave – and why not ? They model straight out behavior, and even more wonderful, if you have a wolfy friend she will never let you down. You are part of her pack. The bad news is, if you let her down, she will ban you from her pack. Wolves mate for life and take pack life seriously, not just for survival, but for love as well. Something most humans these days are not very familiar with in our instant, disposable society.
Packs mean you help each person shine, because the more they shine, the stronger the pack and the happier the pack. Packs also mean you respect strength and the communal leadership as it is hard won. Strong leadership means the pack can relax, they are in good hands. Horses understand this too.
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack ~ Rudyard Kipling
Wolfy women are not ladders for one to climb on to advance yourself. Nor are they meant to be used in times of need, and then discarded. Wolfy women need love, care, tenderness. Just because they are strong, does not mean they are not soft as well – a mistake often made regarding men as well. Strength does not mean no feelings; in fact strength in life is typically matched with strength in having feelings. Yin and yang both have their own combinations of strong and soft. Wolfy women are yin strong. They chose a female body for this life. Yin strength is different to yang. Yin endures, protects with energy and love, provides vision, support and hope. Yin creates a protected sacred space for others to emerge, like a shamanic circle. Yin gives birth to new skills, courage, feelings, because it provides energetic and loving safety under the wings of the angels.
In this culture, in this time, it is a bit lonely being a wolfy woman. No packs, or very few. Wolfy women will often take in strays, because it is so hard to find pack members. Like our fur familiars, wolves attach for life, so wolfy women find it hard to turn people away or to give up one taken under our wing (or paw). Wolfy women will often downplay who they are, including their strengths and beauty, and diminish themselves to fit in – to make others feel less threatened, or to feel better about themselves. Sadly that practice comes with a price – one that is not good to pay over time.
Wolfy women, you must sing with the moon and love the energies around you even if you are running alone for a time. Indigenous cultures had a place for wolfy women, as did the age of the Goddess with the dominance of matrifocal, pagan, earth-centered practices, including but not limited to Buddhist, Hindu, Wiccan, Celtic, Taoist, and many more.
If the wolf is to survive, the wolf haters must be outnumbered. They must be outshouted, out financed, and out voted. Their narrow and biased attitude must be outweighed by an attitude based on an understanding of natural processes ~ L. David Mech
In this era, wolfy women can become targets and can be perceived as threatening, rather than as someone to be in the pack, or on the team. Wolfy women can even find themselves let go from jobs, as their very energy field is an anathema to modern culture, despite women’s lib. In fact, wolfy women can even be attacked by other women who do not understand how to be a true pack member. Stockholm syndrome; align with your captor; the people in power are phenomena of societal culture. This is how Hitler was given his power, how the McCarthy-era flourished, and how the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was able to burn African-Americans for entertainment.
This is not the time of the wolfy women, just like it was not a good time to be a healer in the era of witch hunting.
Few understand how much yin power of the wolfy woman needs the support of a pack – to not to be sucked dry and left by needy people. If you meet a wolfy who empowers you and inspires you, give back the love! Or be a wolfy yourself by joining the power of the pack and harness the majesty of wolves and mustangs.
