The Wise Woman Within (or the WWW) is the very soul of who we are – invisible but very real part of us that God mixed with dust and Spirit to create our unique selves. She is the part of us that is in tune with the Holy Spirit, and when we listen to her – we feel peace, we feel loved, we feel in balance and excited to be alive. We get behind her eyes and we see things from a higher perspective, we understand the bigger picture, and we suddenly know what to do and what to say. Worry drops away, and calm descends. We see ourselves, others, and circumstances more clearly, as the fog lifts in the sunlight of authentic truth-telling.
The prophet Isaiah alluded to this voice in the Old Testament when he wrote,“Your ears will hear sweet words behind you: ‘Go this way. There is your path; this is how you should go’ whenever you must decide whether to turn to the right or the left.” (Isaiah 30:21)
The Wise Woman Within, in essence, is the combination of the Holy Spirit connecting with your unique personality, your feminine soul. It usually occurs when we quiet ourselves and open our hearts to listen--no easy trick in this noisy and list-oriented, fast forward world.
We sometimes think of our relationship to God as we little humans looking up and straining to hear a God who lives way up high – out there in the sky. But the miracle of Christ’s message is “Christ in us, the hope of glory.” Where does God live? Within. He is as close as our breath. But we must tap into him, as a branch to the vine. And when we do, the WWW speaks and we know this voice as easily and naturally as sheep know their Shepherd.
This book is about our adventures in finding, connecting to, and living from this centered place where we hear the voice of that Wise Woman God put within in us – when he meshed our personalities with his Spirit.
