Wow! What a year!
9 months of Womb Wisdom, 9 months of gestation, 9 months of letting go, 9 months of connection, 9 months of growth…and now, our Moon Medicine Woman Training Year 1 group comes to a close.
The Online Moon Lodge provided an incubator for Medicine Women to heal and awaken to their Womb Centre. A place for all to evolve. When I say all, I mean The Medicine Wheel, Spirit all of us in the circle.
And evolve we did.
For me, I grew in ways I didn’t expect – a blessing in surprise! For I can’t see my shadows, my blind spots – but Owl and The Medicine Wheel can.
And so we grew together, Medicine Bundle after Medicine Bundle we connected with our Womb, each other and beyond to our own gifts.
It’s quite something to sit in a circle of women. For the magic to happen, many components need to come together. Some of them known, some of them not known, and some of them Unknown.
This was the groups final creative piece – a sharing of experience, vulnerability and wisdom that emerged from a deep emotional and energetic exploration into The Sacred Womb.
I invite you to read this with curiosity and with your hands on your Womb, as you read each woman’s unique experience of what it means to live and ground Womb Wisdom into daily life.
Flowing With My Cycle
My womb is my centre, my true inner core – the place my strength and wisdom comes from.
When my womb is out of balance my whole being becomes out of balance and it touches my life on all levels – physical, emotional and spiritual. My moon cycle reflects the cyclicity of nature and is one of many wheels that turn life itself.
Being conscious and staying present in my cycle helps me to stay present in my life. I do so by cycle tracking and by giving up my expectations.
Each cycle is different and each brings me different knowledge and understanding of different aspects of myself. Each one of them brings me closer to uniting the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine within.
There are cycles that shake the world as I know it and open doors to different perspectives, but there are also some that flow peacefully letting me rest and look within, gathering inner-wisdom and strength.
I’m open now to let them all in with all the experiences and emotions they wish to bring – pain, blood, joy, sensuality, rise and flow. I allow them day by day and stay mindful of my path through womanhood.
And now I flow with my cycle.
I go within during my moon time and find shelter in my Moon Cave I listen and allow myself to be free and to withdraw. I go out of my shell and shine during ovulation making “impossible” disappear from my dictionary. I rise and descend in harmony with my body.
I listen to my body. I know my body. I am. That’s what the Moon taught me this year.
Healing With The Moon Lodge
I believe the previous 17 years of my healing journey has led me to this place; The Moon Lodge! The lodge was ready for me and she pulled me in deep.
The journey has been painful and challenging whilst at the same time, so wonderfully healing and life changing. I have learnt some powerful tools so I can not only heal my own life but also hold space for my sisters to deeply heal too.
During my time in the lodge I decided to stop taking the contraceptive pill and after 7 years of numbing my bleed I reconnected with my womb and by following a daily womb guidance practice, which I learnt in The Lodge I began to listen to the wisdom of my womb and I realised she is a force to be reckoned with!
As we moved through each medicine bundle I felt huge internal shifts, as I healed my inner world, my outer world also began to heal. My work began to shift and I started to take my clients on a much deeper healing journey and they also experienced incredible results.
Being in The Lodge with my Moon Sisters has in itself been healing in so many ways, I feel I’ve began to heal many of my sister wounds and I’ve also learnt how to communicate more effectively as well as authentically which has encouraged connection rather than disconnection; this is changing my world as I allow women to get close to me again after such a long time.
I feel so grateful for allowing myself the gift of this last year, for committing and giving my absolute all, and I thank the Moon lodge, Melanie and my sisters from the bottom of my heart for making this the most beautiful soul evolving journey of my life!
