The Crone is often associated with death, with transformation, making her appear to be an intimidating archetype to work with – but I wanted to share with you today why that isn’t true.
The Crone is indeed an archetype associated with death and transformation, but what this really means is that this is an archetype that holds us through the places where we release and let go of things that may no longer be serving us or that we may need to move forward from.
She holds us in her cauldron of transformation and guides us to find that light within, that peace within.
The Crone is a wisdom keeper. She holds so much knowledge and incredible power that can support us and guide us as we navigate our way through life.
Many of us fear becoming the Crone, seeing it as a negative thing, however I truly believe is that it is an honour to step over the threshold into that archetype, and to really embody the lived and experienced wisdom that we hold within us as we reach the Crone stage of life.
I also believe wholeheartedly that throughout life, we find pieces, wisdom and elements of each of the archetypes within us, regardless of our age, or where we feel like we’re at in life.
I invite you to turn within and sit with yourself noticing what comes up for you when feeling into the archetype of the Crone. Maybe you feel really comfortable with her. Maybe you feel like you’re already embodying her. Maybe she feels far away. Maybe she feels a little bit scary to you. There is absolutely no right or wrong here, but I invite you just to spend some time feeling into the wisdom, the magic and the transformation that the Crone brings.
With Rose love and blessings
