WHITE WOLF WOMAN

by WOLF MOONDANCE A Shaman of the Osage People

It’s a good time to be alive. In this day and age in America, we have a freedom of religion that allows us the opportunity to express our individualism. That has never existed before. This is a time where we have come as people to stand in the space of the emergence of a new age; a time when many religions are gathering together. It is a good time to be alive! When I thought about doing this article, I listened quietly. I listened for a long time to the She Wolf inside myself. I listened. And I became the Wolf within me, the White Wolf Woman.

The concept of Wolf Medicine has come to be greatly misunderstood. It has come to be associated with other creatures and apparitions, like WereWolf, astral Vampire, Big Foot, Druid, Faire, Nature Spirit, Night Hag, Skunk, Ape, WereBear, the Yeti, the Ponik, and the PolyMode. These names are attempts at describing dimensional shifters, or shape changers. These are terms that, for the most part, are born of superstitious mind, working from incomplete knowledge of the things of this plane and their natural rhythms.

I choose to give teachings about the She Wolf, for in this time our consciousness is expanding regarding Women and the energy of Women. We are exploring the many avenues of the psychic abilities of Women. Women possess a psychic sense known as intuition. This is Wolf Medicine.

The Mothering instinct in each one of us is Wolf Medicine. For the Wolf is a “Motherer,” a “Fatherer.” Simplified, that means Wolf holds the parenting energy in its vibration. That is real Wolf Medicine.

To understand the term She Wolf and some of the other terms I have used, you have to open your mind. Simultaneously, as you open your mind, you must remember within your heart that it is a good time to be alive. Remember, it is because you are alive in this time that you can explore all the methods of personal and spiritual expression available within the human drama.

In America we have been indoctrinated with many narrow-minded religions. Theosophies of limitation have produced fear, and on the whole, are based on materialism. Most Americans were raised on religions that teach us to judge others based on the lofty principles of what you wear, how you got it, and what you do for a living. This has resulted in lifestyles expressed through limited viewpoints and shortsightedness.

These are the teachings that have been passed on to our children, instead of the deep spirituality that comes naturally from Great Spirit, GrandMother, and GrandFather Spirit.

The Wolf Medicine that a Woman walks with, what we call intuition, is her Friendly Wolf. In the old way, the Friendly Wolf was known to come into the village to protect the children. She would appear when times of sickness were at hand, or when a child had gotten lost at night on their way home through the woods. This Friendly Wolf energy comes from the psychic. It is the psychic part of the Woman that knows how to shift her love, her intention, and her nurturing abilities into the form of the Wolf. Thus she comes to the village, in the form of the She Wolf, to protect the children and the old ones in need.

No ordinary person can take the form of She Wolf, for in taking this form, both a psychic and a dimensional shift must occur. This ability to shift comes from a vibrational frequency that must be sustained over a long period of time, thus allowing the transmittal of energy that fosters love, nurturing, and protection. These are the energies that are naturally within Woman, and these energies must be present and called upon in order to enter the energy field of the person in need, the one crying for help.

When you are in need, when you are in danger, or feeling separated and abandoned, you can transmit psychic energy, and pull to you the energy of the She Wolf. You can allow the feeling of that desire to draw to you the principle of the Mother embracing the Child. The very act of allowing the desire to come forth will cause a vibrational shift within the individual’s energy bands, thus allowing the transference to occur.

The She Wolf does not just come to her own Children. She comes for all Children, and for all the Old Ones. She is connected to the Mothering instinct within all of us. This energy travels through our energy bands, and when it connects with the energy of the person in need, it expands within that individual’s energy field, causing a change in the vibrational frequency around the individual in need. She Wolf Medicine is connected through the nurturing Spirits of the Women within the community. This process intensifies the feelings and emotions within the Women of the community. This allows that energy to embrace a feeling of comfort which is experienced by the individual in need through their psychic openings to other planes of their existence.

This is the process through which She Wolf travels to guide a person—through emotional communication, when they are sensing danger, or feeling fear. She Wolf accomplishes this emotional communication by lying down before the individual a heightened intuitive sense which affords the opportunity to access and experience the realm from whence all guidance comes.

This is the realm we often call the fourth dimension. This dimension allows the energy of a Human Being to travel, so to speak, and tend to the psychological needs of another, to be in two places at one time.

This dimension allows the Woman to change form and become the energy of the She Wolf. In that form, she is able to connect with, and attend to, the energies of the person in need. Sometimes the person in need feels, or even sees, the presence of the She Wolf, the Friendly Wolf, the Wolf the Children see on the pathway in the woods, the Wolf who leads them on the pathway home when they have gotten lost.

As I said earlier, the ignorant often compare this energy to energies such as WereBear, WereWolf, and others mentioned. The She Wolf differs from these others mainly in that she harms no one. She Wolf is the Mothering energy of Great Spirit GrandMother Wolf. GrandMother Wolf often comes to us in this time in the form of the She Wolf. She can be seen along the pathway while the Children are berry picking. She is the Friendly Playful Wolf, gently guiding them back, pointing them in the right direction along the path of harmony—the Good Red Road of Great Spirit.

There is also a grand teacher who is seen through the form of the Great White Wolf. She comes to us, especially in these times, when we find our minds suffering from anger, depression, sorrow, confusion, and other results of the shadow form of social tyranny. We can easily find ourselves restricted by religious dogma and traditionalism at every turn, and in every methodology.

This time is not unlike the old times, when the sickness came upon a village. GrandMother She Wolf, the White Wolf hears these things. She feels the need of the people. She hears their cries in the night.

It is said that the She Wolf will often lie down in front of someone in need, and protect them. It is said that the Wolf Medicine will weave its way towards those in psychological need of nurturing and spiritual protection. It has always been known that the White Wolf Medicine has belonged to the Shaman. For the most part, this knowledge has been lost to us in these contemporary times, these times when our automobiles kill, when our machines kill. Even the way in which we live our lives, and the way we raise our children kills. Even our laws kill. Even in taking nourishment from the earth, we kill.

We are passing through a dark time. We are like the Children lost in the woods.

I would hope that this knowledge will help those of you awakening to the search for the old ways, the ways of the Animal Spirits, the Earth Spirits. I hope it is helpful to those of you ready to truly see the values and the impeccability that can be realized in our lives by living in balance with the world of Spirit.

In the stories of the White Buffalo Woman and the White Wolf Woman there is a warning. In these stories, we are told how we can so easily go beyond taking from the Earth, more than what we need. Once that line is crossed, we become subject to the demons of greed and selfishness, and we have broken the Sacred Hoop. That is when it seems as if our world is collapsing.

When we break the Sacred Hoop, when we go beyond that Sacred Circle of life, then we have gone beyond the realm of earthly balance. That is when we find ourselves lost in a world of chaos and fear. It is to the World of Man, this realm of illusion and limitation, that the She Wolf can come. Or the WereWolf can come. The difference is this: one is snarling and red-eyed and vicious. The other is smiling, and the sun shines through her yellow eyes, and tiny rainbows bounce upon her hair, and in her mannerism, there is a balance of both the whimsical and the solemn.

The White Wolf, in its manner, is telling you that you are straying from the path. It is telling you to return. She calls you to return to the Good Red Road.

“Grand Mother and Grand Father have sent me to guide you to seek out the teachers who carry the Wolf Medicine. Go to these teachers. Listen to the Mothers, and learn how we can return to the old ways. Listen to the GrandMother teachings,” the White Wolf says.

This reminds me of the first time I witnessed shape shifting. I realized that it was a matter of a person being totally in one place and thinking themselves in another at the same time. This form of medicine can be viewed as illusionary medicine. But the She Wolf, the Big Foot, the WereWolf, the Vampire, the way of these medicines is very real. They are ancient forms of medicine that have been with us since the beginnings of our time here upon this plane.

So. Is there “a” She Wolf? No, but there is “a” White Wolf Woman, the GrandMother Wolf. There can be many She Wolves.

It has been said that it is too controversial to teach that a person could change their form into the She Wolf. Some would say that shape shifting is so controversial, that this knowledge should be hushed, coveted, kept secret. Some say that we should not speak of these matters. Some say that we should mask our presence if we possess this ability, for there are those who would kill that which they do not understand.

We see this madness demonstrated countless times in our everyday existence living in modern society. It is demonstrated in our hatred for those who are a different color, or have a different way. We see it demonstrated in the hatred Women have for Men, and the hatred Men have for Women. These emotions are running rampant in our society. We see it in the newspapers and on our television sets. We are losing our Children, as well as our Old Ones. It reminds me of the times we experienced back in the 1890’s. People are again destroying that which they do not understand. They are falling back into darkness, following religions of superstition.

So! I feel it is the time for the White Wolf Woman to come once again to our villages. It is time, again, for GrandMother Wolf to come into the village, and spread the teachings at your feet so that you might see the truth of things. This, so that once again you might return to confidence in purpose, so that you might see the light.

It is time for balance to return to our Earth Mother, not just upon Turtle Island, but for the whole of the planet. It is time for us to look deeper at things like dimensional shifting. It is time for us to become aware of Spirit energy again — it’s movement, and it’s nature.

Once the energy of this great universe was linear. Then things shifted, and the energy began to move back and forth. Then it swirled about, and expanded and contracted, creating sixth dimensional reality. In this manner GrandFather created the universe. In this movement the Earth plane was created. One of the things created here was time and space. So here, in this plane, we are subject to the laws of that reality. We are subject to the illusion of time and space.

But in the fourth dimension, where the She Wolf lives, these things do not exist; they are but an illusion of this plane. To understand this fullness of dimensional reality, it is necessary for us to develop our spiritual dedication, as we venture forward along the pathway that returns to the Sacred Self, the Self that is one with GrandMother and GrandFather Great Spirit.

As the She Wolf returns to walk through our villages to protect the Children and the Old Ones, she watches how we have developed, how we have grown, and where we have faltered.

And she brings a warning.

It is time to return to the balance of the Sacred Hoop. It is time to listen to our Mothering instincts. It is time to change our way of living. It is time to let the softness of the Woman speak once again in our society. It is time to let the teaching of the GrandMothers be brought back to the Daughters and the GrandDaughters. For the She Wolf has come home, as is her way when the cries of the Children and the Old Ones wake her from her dream time.

It is time to bring back the Woman’s Circle. It is time to remove the shame that Women carry from the lack of understanding of the menstrual cycle. It is time to bring back the teachings that are shared from Mother to Daughter, from GrandMother to GrandDaughter.

The Friendly Wolf is walking through the village once again.

There would be no need for abortions if we understood the sacred ways of child birthing. It is time for the awakening of the She Wolf within all Women. For the baby She Wolf is nurtured by the knowledge of the Women’s Circle. Her psychic abilities open. And she is then able to nurture the Male of her choosing with her energies, to open doorways in his being, so that the ManChild once again walks in balance with the Earth Mother.

It is time, as the She Wolf walks through our villages once again, to start paying attention to the call of the fourth dimension, where both roads—the one known as good and the one known as evil—exist; the place where we can clearly see, once again, our choice in choosing our direction.

Sometimes, even the most evil things, the WereWolf, the WereBear, the Horned One, the Vampire, the Beast, even the most evil itself, the one known as Lucifer, can be listened to. Sometimes it is true that a great strength can be drawn from observing evil.

This is not a time to shut our minds to the magical realms of our reality. It is time to listen to the Medicine of the old ways. It is time to reach out to the Little People, to listen to the Medicine of the Whales, the Dolphins, GrandMother Grizzly, and the She Wolf. It is time to hear the Medicine of the Great Eagle, time to go beyond our closed realities of microwaves and television. In our material consciousness, our lives of existence have been made easy by technology, but somehow we have forgotten the human struggle. We are becoming small minded, and we are closing down. We are loosing the friction that causes our growth and expands our spiritual awareness and understanding.

These things of the material reality are illusionary. They could be gone from our reality in the twinkling of an eye. In the twinkling of the eye! The She Wolf walks through our villages once again, offering peace of mind. She offers it along a pathway containing Seven Sacred Teachings. She draws upon these Sacred Teachings as she turns towards the GrandMother Wolf. Each She Wolf, through her intuition, draws upon these teachings as a natural part of the Sacred Cycle of Life. She draws from the White Wolf Woman, the knowledge of GrandMother Wolf.

So the next time the White Wolf appears in your dream time, or in your vision time, listen to your intuition. Follow that path. For in the integrity of Woman’s intuitive emotion, you will come to know one of the secrets along the Shaman’s path. It will take you on a journey that leads to an individual quest, one that will allow you to have creativity in your life and show you how to expand into the realms of the visionary. There you can walk through the rainbow mist, into the rain, and be cleansed, and see the truth.

The She Wolf, the White Wolf Woman brings these things, for she has not forgotten our oneness. For we are all Sisters of the Moon. Your howls have been heard.

From the heart of the Wolf, aho!
