I just finished reading a book by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
It is called *The Dancing Grandmothers. To BE Young While Old, Old While Young.*
She gives such a powerful and beautiful Tree-analogy in it.
I try to translate a bit of it:
She says, even when a tree gets cut down,
after a while in most cases it will have new sprouts.
Coming out of the roots which are hidden beneath the Earth.
In this (daughter)sprouts the tree will live on.
She claims that every woman has a guardian deep within (roots),
which no matter what happens to the woman is available and can be activated.
Sorry, I can't do it better in English.
Anyway, it was very encouraging to read the book.
