I am SO EXCITED to share the intensive work of the past 5 weeks, and perhaps my whole life has led me to here…

So many past creations finding their home in this work, feels like all the pieces are finally fitting together.

From the very beginning of working with women I wanted to share what we were talking to, what we were uncovering in the menstrual conversation, I wanted to share this with men. THIS work, feels like there are the mechanisms for real understanding and language to be built in such a way as to create true safety in a woman’s world to really go there, deeply within, knowing he will be able to hold her upon her return, as she has all of herself available to hold him.

We are in some turbulent times, we need to learn to truly trust ourselves and each other. This work deepens the vessel that is your relationship to become the sovereign state you can be, then in a powerful position to serve your family and your community.

Please Check out the details and see if it fits you.

my altar for time

We watched the film “A Dangerous Method” last night… that powerful moment of separation between the learning, willing to participate, Jung, and the only able to hold the authoritative core of analysis, Freud, a true moment of student surpassing the master… That Freud existed at all I am grateful, that he held open the space that gave birth to the opportunity that is processing our emotional experience, profound… but where Jung took it, where he went in the name of his own sanity, and the possibility of the human experience, just how far human freedom could be expressed, this is what I have come to understand as the gift of Jung, of the birth of psychoanalysis…

To risk our authority is to say … I don’t know… I have no idea what lay beyond this, and that is the most delicious way to learn, perhaps the only way to learn. Here I am sitting on the edge of the abyss again, knowing I have to go forward, prepared to go alone if I have to, but deeply wishing you will come with me… I don’t know where this will take me, but my intent is to find what ever we need, what I need, to make the deep respect I have for Earth, Women, Men and Children… REAL. Live-able, sustainable, realistic. I’m after Utopia, I want a world where we can ALL live in basic harmony, with the self, each other and this Blessed Earth.

The pic is the altar I have just built… I feel like I have created access to all of time now by bringing in my cycle observations into newly created ritualistic tools to harness the fertility of me. This is my time to build. To make real all the deep and juicy visions that come, blood after blood, as the wheel turns. Everything I have ever learnt has led me here.

I’m building a temple to the womb, for the womb, to create access to Her womb, collective core creative power. The vision I have is to share this space, the building of it, the access to it. Retreat space, to stay and descend, at first it may just be that there is space to pitch a tent. In time a big juicy building that has all manner of goodness to share. Permaculture food forests, labyrinth’s, bush sculptures, studio space, both wet and dry. One day a forge in the workshop.  SO much to make real, and such a core knowing that the means are the ends, the how and who of this build feels open, needs to be open, but only to those willing, able to do the work, WITH.

I have no idea where this will take me… I have no real authority that we will make it there, into Her… But what I do know is that I have an invitation to those around me…. is your vision to work WITH… Let me know if you want to play!

freshwater-pearls

 

A delicious idea raged through me just the other morning, and now that it has some form, tis time to share it.

When we give a new body of knowledge a physical anchour for the conscious mind, we allow for embodiment, which is very different to remembering.  A simple set of actions that build the wisdom from the inside out. This concept can’t be new, I am sure there are many that utilize our disposition to small acts of ritual to support a framework of understanding, I just can’t think of them right now.

So, the body of work, Harnessing the Fertile Force, is a process of accessing our core fertility, our fecundity, from the whole of the cycle. Allowing ourselves to really sink in and use the whole 28+ days (or your version… anywhere from 18-45 is considered normal).

This particular part is to access the gift of life that is each and every egg as it makes itself ready for your world, whether you are or not, whether one uses that egg for physical babies, or idea babies, or just getting through to the next action of the project that is our life! That egg has a force, subtle but perhaps some of the most potent intentional state one can imagine.

Here is the idea… I’m going to take two vessels, bowls or vases, similar but not the same perhaps, and then calculate how many ovulation’s I may have left before I pause, slip into menopause.  For me, I took the age I am from the age my mum paused, and then added another 5 years just to be safe. Then I multiplied it by 13, number of cycles per year… so, for me, I settled on 222 as my number… I’m going to purchase 222 freshwater pearls, the ones you can get from many stores, the not perfect ones with holes in them so that they can be threaded… Then, placing them ALL in one vessel on an altar space set up just for this moment, so that with ease, I can take just one of those pearls out, sit with it, drop into my ovary, feel that egg prepare, witness the point on the horizon that I wish to aim for… fill that pearl and then place it gently into the empty vessel.  Simple, but deep access to your ovulation power embedded in your body!

Cycle after cycle, the empty vessel shall slowly fill… even assisting me to come to terms with the fact that my beloved cycle, that I relish each phase of, will slip from my life, as I prepare to pause.

You could use seeds, seedpods, buttons, marbles, other crystals or a mix. For me, being able to build something from this perhaps once I have paused, as a recognition/homage to all that has been done, and an access to what I have achieved with my ovulatory power, feels important, so being aware of where they as symbols/sigils of your eggs will eventually live feels important.

There are more… each of the phases feels to be effectively accessed by each of these simple rites. You may have to come to my class to receive the rest though.

What would you use to represent your ovulation’s?

Descending into the depths of the underworld that you may share circle with the women that have held you as sacred for so many lifetimes. This circle is always there, just under your surface and the practice of returning to it each time you bleed will only strengthen your sense of self and inner power and guidance to such profound levels that you will know a deeper and fundamental peace.  Sit in this circle as often as you choose to be with your wisdom to such a degree as to hear yourself from the outside as well as the inner-side. Sharing a good strong meal in the underworld with your ancient sisters is to turn and face death, sit down and have a cuppa, knowing that “She loves you and you are going to die”

This experience is going to change as you use this system. There will become an intensity of self arising, as well as a fierceness to protect your blood time. Making sure that you are able to take time for self, tend this deep well of self. As your world shifts, please return here and share the journey.

This is the longest of our phases, we spend the most time here in this land of being in the world with so much potential. We are capable of many actions, knowings and profound healing. In this journey we utilise the inner landscapes capacity to hold us with enough room to see just the part we are working with right now. As we hold sacred space and allow for that which can be healed, today, now as we are able, within this space to further the living of wholeness and being real. This is the emotional currency, as in being fully felt, by the self for the purpose of truly feeling alive in the now. As you now, and the past of you, either 2 weeks or 2 decades ago, hold a moment that is alive in your being, hold it to know it, to know it is to understand it, to understand is to bring healing and closure that it no longer has any power over you in its unfinished form.  The Mama is with us in this journey so very power-fully that we may learn to trust Her and all Her bountiful gifts.

The art form of ever healing the self, towards wholeness and an authentic real life lived ALL the way out to the edges, this art form can be practiced here in the pre-menstrual state… wow, tis a long way away from where we normally hold the pre-menstrual phase. As you use this meditation, as you take full response-ability for what you are feeling, please share here in this blog post the shifts you are noticing.
