Awakening The Crone, The Plus Side of Aging

Awakening the Crone to find the plus side of aging will give you a new outlook whether you are a crone or a mere maiden.

The three life stages of womanhood

Cultures today embrace the maiden with her graceful beauty. She is the bloom of the rose before it opens, full of potential creation. The mother is creation, her gift is to make tangible what you yearn for, the power of manifestation. Yet what of the crone? She has been long hidden, only recently do you see her in media. Who is the crone and why are her gifts to you important to recognize?

The crone has many names, each culture has their own mythology. She is the wise one, grandmother and keeper of all knowledge. She has been tested by hardship and has traveled the wheel of life. Recognizing her is to acknowledge your mortality and the onset of aging. Do you fear her? Do you fear death? Take a moment to step out of fear and see with clear eyes, the beauty of her face, each wrinkle the result of joy or sadness.  What stories she has to tell you.

Connecting to your inner hag allows you to receive wisdom, discernment and freedom. How is freedom related? Consider that if you dropped the struggles and efforts to remain young, and rejected the cultural ideals which seem to idolize youth and physical beauty, how free you’d be. No matter which stage of life you are in the crone sets you free. She is acceptance, grace and finally transmutation. She represents the final stage of life, completing the circle. What is death but an ending followed by a new beginning? Winter is followed by spring and the cycle starts anew. You have so many little deaths in life.  The end of a job or a relationship, the ever changing circumstances of life. Let the crone guide you, listen to her words, what message does she have for you today?

The crone is your consciousness evolving. The wisdom from having lived and learned, achievement through life experience. The chance to find peace as you grow older. Having been there and done that, she represents the time in life where you can just be … Okay with yourself, nothing to prove and comfortable now to be alone and to be introspective. Finally you are able to let go, to let what has served its purpose die and fall away. This creates fertile ground for something new to take its place. Not so much death and birth as it is transmutation. Why transmutation?

Death and the decay which follows is only the physical changing form. Your form changes (or your job, your relationship), your consciousness evolves (thank your life lessons) but your real self, the self that is beyond ego remains and continues. Thus death is an initiation to life, the form may change and yet you continue. Life continues and the wheel keeps eternally turning. This is the gift of the crone, the knowledge that all things change however nothing is lost, merely transformed. Death doesn’t separate, rather it completes and brings wholeness, despite the illusions otherwise. Embrace your inner crone, the hag within and cherish her wisdom, her total acceptance and grace. Let her enrich your life, come into wholeness.
