Crone Whispers to the Winter Witch – Inviting the Wisdom to Speak

The biting wind is back, and the cold has come to stay for the winter. Each night, the frost rolls in like a wave, leaving everything in its path covered in tiny crystals. The holly has grown thick and the fallen leaves would smell sweetly of decomposition, if the freezing air had not already stopped them in their tracks.

Winter stops us all in our tracks.

The frost calls us slow down and take a moment to honor all that we have, all that we have let go of, and all that is coming our way. Winter provides us with the collective opportunity to sink into our own darkness for a moment, to reflect on the life we have built over the last annual cycle.

This winter darkness is where our inner wise woman rests and waits. She is waiting for those who are seeking her ancient wisdom.

She has much knowledge to share, but you must come to her, prepared to listen. Her secrets have been passed down from the Moon, and in the darkness of Winter, the messages come through. As the frost lays itself upon every surface, everything else is still, and those who listen will hear all the secrets that the Crone has been keeping, all cycle long.

She reminds us of our successes and our failures. She speaks of things to come and things to fade into the ashes of the past. She is all knowing, and those who listen in the darkness of the long night will never forget the words that she whispers.

Go to a quiet place in the woods and just listen.

It is SHE who will tell you all you need to hear in order to let go of that which is not in alignment with the Witch you are becoming. SHE will give you the courage and fortitude to press forward through your own transformation. Trust her to tell you the secrets of the Moon and she will.

When you are waiting to hear her, whisper these words, and her voice will surely come.

Wise Crone, Winter Witch Mother

I call you to me in the darkest hour of the long night.

I ask you to bring me messages from the past, keys to the present and insight for the future.

I seek your wisdom and your guidance.

I welcome you – I honor you – I thank you.”

And then just listen and remember.
