Cravings (Clarissa Pinkola Estes)

A Woman may crave to be near water , or be belly down , her face in the earth , smelling the wild smell .

She might have to drive into the wind .

She may have to plant something, pull things out of the ground or put them into the ground .

She may have to knead and bake , rapt in dough up to her elbows .

She may have to trek into the hills leaping from rock to rock trying out her voice against the mountain .

She may need hours of starry nights where the stars are like face powder spilt on a black marble floor .

She may feel she will die if she doesn’t dance naked in a thunderstorm , sit in perfect silence , return home ink -stained , paint-stained , tear-stained , moon -stained …

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
