What is a Weaver? The River Beneath the River

Weavers walk the different worlds.  They are aware there is much more to the world than what meets the eye, and they regularly access and help others access these other worlds and guidance (aka divinity) through meditation, the natural world, singing, chanting, ritual, ceremony, Circles.  They are Priestesses, Healers, Witches and Sages.  People come to them because most times, they leave feeling better.  Sometimes they come because subconsciously they know they need whatever medicine the Weaver has access to.  And they will not leave feeling better, but if they allow the healing in, they will grow.

Weavers know as well that no matter how messy things sometimes look up close or from the bottom, when you look at them from afar, there is a pattern.

The river underneath the river.   Ah yes, just went and googled, Clarissa Pinkola Estes speaks of it here:

“Each woman has potential access to Rio Abajo Rio, this river beneath the river. She arrives there through deep meditation, dance, writing, painting, prayermaking, singing, drumming, active imagination, or any activity which requires an intense altered consciousness. A woman arrives in this world-between-worlds through yearning and by seeking something she can see just out of the corner of her eye. She arrives there by deeply creative acts, through intentional solitude, and by practice of any of the arts.”

So we all have the potential to be a Weaver. Some of us are aware of this. And some are not. Yet.
