Vasalisa’s initiation begins with learning to let die what must let die. This means to let die the values and attitudes within the psyche which no longer sustain her. Especially to be examined are those long held views which make life too safe, which over protect, which make women walk with a scurry instead of a stride.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes – Women Who Run With Wolves
Like the solitary raven I am perched, knowing I can take flight, but not quite sure where to fly to. For now I am at Baba’s examining long held views that kept me safe but also restrained.
Perhaps I will turn to the Tarot to help me identify just what the views are that I need to dismember and let die.
