Return: A Menstrual Blood Give-way Prayer

This is a poem I say as I pour my menstrual blood into The Earth. 

Our blood had magical properties that nourish us into life – we grow in this potion as a fetus.

We all come from the womb. We ALL are nourished by the same source.

Our blood is Sacred. Not dirty, no need to hide it, no more shame.

I encourage you to touch your blood – something very special happens when we do this. 

Taboo’s are broken. Shame dissolves.

We become reconnected, re-acquainted with our Soul’s knowledge


From one Mother to Another
From my body to yours
From one Womb to Creation
I give of my blood.

By MELANIE SWAN


This prayer and photograph were displayed as part of an exhibition on Saturday 7th March 2015 for International Womens’ Day, at the Birley, Preston, by Claire Doyle, conceptual and visual artist.

Through oceans of time, women have looked outside of ourselves for their spiritual path and autonomy over our own bodies. However, there IS a movement of consciousness that wants to redress this imbalance. In order to actualise this, we must make the changes within and take responsibility for our own body, empowerment, and evolution.
