From the Game board of Fae Circles.

For the 20+ years of conversation I have been having with my blood, my womb, I have come to understand that my emotional, mental, physical and deeply spiritual Life are all woven, warp and weft through my womb and the place I stand in my own inner circle of existence. By knowing, learning and trusting these states I consider myself funded from within. I note my externals, the latest song and dance routines from Beyonce, Putin and Turnbull, but I am rarely instructed by them as a function of truth.

It is my blood I consider my source code.

When I create from here, when I sit still in the center allowing what can be to bubble forth, I can feel the balanced state of mind in service to the heart to be the movement of the womb, connected in deep love of Earth. If we were to build from, listen to and TRUST this gentle honest voice of invitation, what could we be together? Where would a world that was listening to womb’s be taken? Would we choose poison and profit over real health and wealth? Would we as womb bearers, those that carry this source code be treated differently if we valued this conversation? If we gave true respect to life giving principles, perhaps even life itself? Could we take our place in the natural world no longer as overlords with a mandate to own, control and exploit OR could we become the noble sentient beings we are, capable of incredible feats of love, cooperation and empowerment.

We know that every solution our planet needs we already have. What we seem to be lacking is the will to use it. As women we get to make many more decisions than we think we do, maybe not at a Federal level, but our buying power is far greater than we give ourselves credit for. The deeper we listen, the stronger the wisdom, the more our decisions are not pushed and shoved by the latest noise, but considered for the overall impact each purchase makes to the health of our family, our community and our Earth.

Recently I have felt to return to an old creation of mine. A game I made for my then 4 year old daughter. It is a non-competitive game that has each player making three wishes at the end, one for themselves, one for an other, one for the Earth. I have translated it from its original form to the current digital .pdf form for ease of transmission. Fae Circles is an offering from my womb, probably one of the first I heard after my daughter was born! I loved it then, and now, trusting that its true intent is to create more love in the world. Offering up the practices to build the will of a family to be guided from within, as a whole, as a group of humans on the same team, with the love of Earth and Fae.

This is an offering from my source code, designed to invoke your source code, that we may all Live Gently, with the Self, Other and Earth. Fae Circles is a family offering, heart family, blood family, soul family. For my blood work, for womb owners (past and present) please see my work at Living Gently, there is much much more than we have ever been encouraged to understand or explore.

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!

This image sits in front of me… a reminder of what incredible women can achieve… Each woman, in her lifetime, created the beginnings of profound movements that are still with us today!
Love of Women This I know I can be a part of too…

At the top of the circle, Elizabeth Kubler Ross… Transformed the medical professions relationship with Death.

Following the pentacle down to the right bottom, Anita Roddick... Made manifest the desire to enjoy our bodies with out costing an animals life or the health of the planet, part of the movement towards a brand new relationship with business.

Up to the left, Mary Daly… First woman to break through the Theological masculine world mind set (with her two PhD’s) to consider the feminine mind… although her separatist agenda is not one I can adhere to, her profound love of the feminine and the inherent intelligence that is found there is so much of what her work offers access to!

Straight along to the right, Marie Stopes… A woman that pioneered the first family planning clinic’s in London, perhaps anywhere, where education was brought to women, by midwives, about how their cycle worked, how their bodies worked, how sex could be enjoyable!! My kind of woman!

Down to the left, Tamara Slayton, the founder of the The Red Web movement of menstrual educators, a hero of mine from my very beginnings of riding the red tide!

Women of Love, Earth, Wisdom, Perseverance, Power and Change… Women that show me so much has already been changed, we can continue the change… with our LOVE of being a WOMAN!

I have found a new name for me! Sapiosexual

One who finds intelligence the most sexually attractive feature.
“I want an incisive, inquisitive, insightful, irreverent mind. I want someone for whom philosophical discussion is foreplay. I want someone who sometimes makes me go ouch due to their wit and evil sense of humor. I want someone that I can reach out and touch randomly. I want someone I can cuddle with.

I decided all that means that I am sapiosexual.”

“I am sapiosexual. I think geeks and nerds are sexy–I often want to rub my clit against their minds.” -Kayar Silkenvoice

Thank you Urban Dictionary!

I just have to share…there is new place that I am exploring that would have a trail left behind me as soon as I can make sense… or perhaps this is where I give myself permission to not make sense… just sense, share what I feel, what I am writing and learning, what is coming to me in the most intense waves…

This is where we know that the blood work is so deeply connected to the sexual being of a woman… release this part of her, and you release her libido, her passion, her desire centers go off!

Erotic Earth is brewing deeply… come along and play!

I’ve just woken from a dream, perhaps in more ways than one. In my dream: women and children were running, hiding, protecting themselves from men, wild murderous men, but there were even some men, protecting us women and children from themselves, creating boundries that they could communicate through but not get through. They felt fearful of themselves and the damage they could do. I was very afraid in the dream, running a number of times from different types of situations, sometimes it seemed as if very real violence was coming at me, but mostly(if not all) it was the intent of violence, the sirens or the sun setting, (there seemed to be a time element to the onset of the violence) The women I was with constantly changed, from my mother and daughter, to biological sister, to my blood sisters, then there were random women, but ALWAYS was there this sense of defending eachother, of looking out for one another, well to a degree… There was a woman, really pregnant, just due, that had moved around/past me in an anonomus state. Then again later she seemed so seperate from the rest of us. Then the last time I saw her, she had impaled her stomach with round spiky hair brush, blood all over it, then she left to die.

There was one scene where we were being rushed out of somewhere (with sirens), so that we could survive, and the getaway vehicle was a flat bed truck with it’s flat bed tilted down so that we could run and jump on to it, pulling eachother up to safety.

The men that were protecting us from themselves were very sad, as well as adament that the precautions were nessecary. Constantly creating distance but remaining present.

I woke with a start, aware of the many layers… Man and his beast, a subject of study yesterday. Being afraid of it as women and children, men being afraid of their own. Women can access this beast too, we’ve been breeding that kind of woman for a while now, one that can totally override the heart matter and switch on the violence, the power over.

Are we all just the animal under the thin veneer of cultural training over the top. BUT is that animal truly violent? the difference between the ability to kill and the creulty to others that only humans seem to be capable of??

Phil Cleary spoke at the Readings part of the V-Day Festival. His twenty year journey since the violent murder of his sister, whose killer was given a reduced sentence due to the law of provocation, Phil’s life, a powerful life. He has been part of removing this “law of provocation” that states, the “madness” a woman can instil in a man makes it not really his fault… which smells of the open meat statements.

As my psyche seems to be sifting through all of this theory in my dreams, I am struck by another reading done that weekend, about the tenderness of wolves, the sweet absence of blood among preditors.

In theory, the bigger our brains got, the more we could think, we began to seperate ourselves from the animal nature of being the animal that we are, with instincts. There began the long journey of discovery of free will, choice, delayed gratification, reward and punishment, power over… and perhaps now, a gentle blossoming of the power within.

As the globe over begins to question, change and embrace this next level of women/men relations… we have a chance to explore that which can be created…

An ode to waking up!
