Worldwide Womb BlessingFor a few hours over the mid-day Blessing we had beautiful sunshine and all around us the Earth is flowering with Bluebells and Primroses in the hedges. The Mother energy has truly entered the northern hemisphere.

After sending energy to the newly menstrual young women joining the Worldwide Womb Blessing, I was thinking about what we ‘experienced cyclic women’ would wish for them.

Wholeness and completeness like the Full Moon Mother came into my mind.

We see so much competition between women and so much conflict getting in the way of the oneness we all share. It rises from fear and insecurity, which comes from feelings of lack and incompleteness. When we are complete within ourselves, when we feel whole like the Full Moon, we can radiate love and be giving without condition. The Womb Blessing helps us to reclaim our complete female nature.

Each Blessing is a sanctuary, a place where we can restore ourselves back to wholeness. With wholeness and the understanding that we all have challenges with being cyclic in a linear world, we will be able to be a little more self aware, more patient and forgiving, and be more allowing with other women.

Miranda GrayThis morning for the first Worldwide Womb Blessing the sky was just changing from the pale pink colours of dawn. Everything was still and serene. The birds were just starting to wake and their song was filling the air as a wave of peace and love surrounded the Earth.

On the altar are many statues of the Divine Feminine given to me as I travel the world teaching, each one reminding me of Her many forms and how women are connected to each other across  all continents by their wombs, their cycles and their reflection of the Divine Feminine. We all speak one language – the language of our body, our cyclic nature, and the four female archetypes. And it is from listening to our body and to other women that we understand that distance, language and culture have no meaning and we all share one body, one perspective, one spirituality – that is of being a woman.

In the Blessings today I am sending love to the newly menstrual women who have joined the Worldwide Womb Blessing. I hope that they feel this oneness of women, and that they feel free to be cyclic and to experience and live their own unique expression of the four female archetypes. I hope that they dance their path, live their dreams, express their creativity, embrace their sexuality, love their spirituality and enjoy being cyclic women.

Love and hugs

August by Miranda Gray (c) 2000

En la tradición Celta del Norte, el 1 de Agosto es el festival de Lughnasad (o Lammas), donde se celebra la cosecha de los primeros frutos y granos. Es época de abundancia, o de realización y finales, cuando los frutos caen y mueren conteniendo las semillas de una nueva vida para el año futuro. Es también la época en que nos inclinamos a las energías de la Madre con gratitud y afrontamos la llegada de la oscuridad de la Hechicera. Podemos sentirnos tristes porque el tiempo de la luz está terminando, al tiempo que damos los primeros pasos en el laberinto de la senda que, lentamente, nos lleva girando en espiral hacia el invierno. La presencia de la Madre descansa detrás de nosotras, y la Hechicera y todos sus desafíos salvajes empiezan a crecer en nosotras a cada paso.

Si eres una hermana de la Bendición de Útero en el Hemisferio Norte, celebra el regreso del arquetipo de la Hechicera de la Madre Tierra y dale la bienvenida a su magia salvaje, su profunda espiritualidad, su creativa inspiración y poder. Prepárate para la transformación, el cambio y una cabalgata salvaje, mientras las energías de la Tierra y el año de la Hechicera de la Bendición de Útero se combinan con las energías de la fase premenstrual de tu propia Hechicera y las energías de la Hechicera de la fase de la luna menguante.

Vístete con algo que simbolice la Hechicera para ti, para recordarte diariamente a tí misma que sus energías se están expandiendo en tu vida. Realiza actividades acordes con su presencia y energías – sé creativa, sé impulsiva, sé salvaje y sin restricciones. Ten un proyecto creativo o un proyecto que involucre limpiar y realizar cambios, y realiza una actividad espiritual que puedas hacer a diario a medida que danzas el laberíntico sendero hacia la Bruja, que aparecerá el 31 de octubre.

Si ésta fase de la Hechicera es salvaje, recuerda que habrá paz y descanso en las energías de la Bruja, no sólo en el invierno, sinó también a lo largo del próximo año. Por eso, es el momento de estar activa cuando la Hechicera te llama y te da su energía y guía. Sal afuera bajo las estrellas y zapatea la tierra con tus pies, como si fuera un tambor. Baila con el ritmo de tu corazón y con el de la Tierra y el de las estrellas. Somos mujeres de magia, mujeres de poder y mujeres de libertad. Zapatea por las mujeres que están desamparadas y abandonadas para hacerles saber su poder, su oscura belleza y su magia.

La Hechicera nos da un mensaje profundo y poderoso – amar y aceptarnos a nosotras mismas- y lo hará tan fuerte y obvio como pueda. Perturbará tu vida para lograr que llegue su mensaje! La clave de la fase de la Hechicera es la autoestima – escuchar nuestras necesidades más íntimas y nutrirnos amorosamente a nosotras mismas aceptando y encontrando esas necesidades. Por eso, si algunas situaciones te estresan y sobrepasan; si tus emociones se vuelven fuertes y reactivas; si sientes que tu poder se encuentra agresivo y frustrante; escucha tus necesidades, haz algo al respecto y afróntalo, para demostrar que te amas y aceptas a tí misma y a tu bella y maravillosa feminidad.

La meditación adicional para la Bendición Mundial del Útero de Agosto celebra la abundacia que tenemos como mujeres y nos ayuda a liberarla en nuestras vidas.

Para las hermanas de la Bendición de Útero en el Hemisferio Sur, hoy empieza vuestro viaje de salir de la oscuridad del laberinto. Las energías de la Bendición de Útero de la Hechicera se combinan con las energías arquetípicas de la Doncella de la Tierra, ambas dinámicas y ambas independientes y poderosas. Hasta el 31 de Octubre, la magia salvaje e intuitiva de las energías del año de la Hechicera se suavizarán con las energías intelectuales y estructuradas de la Doncella. Esto supone una época increíble para dar a luz ideas desde tu intuición y dar los primeros pasos para hacerlas realidad. Mientras las energías de la Doncella de tu ciclo menstrual se combinan con las energías de la Tierra y las de la Luna creciente, la Doncella te ayudará a hacer que sucedan cosas en tu vida que satisfagan las necesidades de tu Hechicera y crear autoestima.

Para el Hemisferio Sur la meditación adicional celebra la renovación y renacimiento de nuestra feminidad y la devuelve al mundo.

Amor y abrazos,
Miranda

In the jungle near Tulum, Mexico, is a beautiful cenote.

CenoteA cenote is a large hole in the white rock filled with fresh water which is often turquoise blue or emerald green. In the centre of this cenote is an island in the shape of a turtle, symbol of the Great Mother Goddess, the Creatrix of the world.

In February this year during a trip to Mexico my husband visited this cenote and told me of the magic of the place and of the local cave which had been used for women’s rituals.

Tulum has always had a special energy for me; the ancient ruins resonate with the heart centre and the Goddess of the land and sea gives her love and presence so generously. I wanted to visit Tulum again and the only time available in a crowded and hectic schedule was the week of the Worldwide Womb Blessing. The call in my heart was so strong that I decided to see if we could hold the Blessing at the cenote.

I envisaged an image of the cenote being used by Moon Mothers as a ‘Mother Bowl’ to send the worldwide Womb Blessing energy. A spark of inspiration became flight tickets and we sent out an invitation to the Moon Mother Administrators and Representatives around the world to join me at the cenote.

The 17th December, Womb Blessing day, started for me at midnight on the 16th Mexican time with the first sending of the Womb Blessing energy, and the last Womb Blessing at 6pm local time was to be held at the cenote.

Worldwide Womb Blessing 17th DecemberThe weather in December has been unseasonably cold and wet, and we had arrived in Cancun to torrential rain. We were hoping that all would be dry, and when we arrived at the cenote in the afternoon we had sunshine and a few white clouds. A few Moon Mother ‘helpers’ arrived early, including the wonderful and beautiful Norma and Katia from Cancun, and they all crossed the small bridge onto the island to start creating the altar to the ancestors and spirits of the place and the Womb Blessing altar.

The island has a small circular thatched area and we set energy in this space to be a sacred circle for women for the evening. We had a few wonderful men helping us with the event, but the island was kept a women-only space.

Moon Mothers started arriving, and they looked beautiful in their white and red dresses and skirts. It was wonderful for me to hug Moon Mothers I had not seen since February and to meet again Catalina from Paris and Moon Mothers from other countries. Catalina brought with her a funny Eiffel Tower to represent the French Moon Mothers, and we had a lovely drawing sent by the Swiss Moon Mothers to represent them.

In the preparation meditation we connected to the Moon Mothers who had had to cancel, and to all the Moon Mothers around the world, so they were part of our ‘circle of sisters’ that night.

Worldwide Womb Blessing 17th DecemberAll was well until I started the energy preparations on the island, when the heavens opened to a tropical rainstorm. Moon Mothers ran onto the island soaked, and rain dripped through the thatch creating a large puddle in the centre of the circle. It was wonderful, beautiful and magical to see the rain streaming down and to hear the sound of the waterfall into the cenote increase. We were all wet, but it didn’t matter! The Mayan goddess of water was giving us her blessing for the work we were to do.

We were a group of thirty Moon Mothers, and as we started the meditations the sun slowly set. The sacred space was full of copal incense and the whole cenote filled with this beautiful scent.

At 6pm the Moon Mothers started sending the Womb Blessing energy, and when I joined them my experience of the energy was so beautiful. This was the first time I have given the Blessing with Moon Mothers with me, and the effect was amazing. The energy was intensified, and the whole cenote lit up with energy.

I realised that something very beautiful and powerful happens when Moon Mothers come together and the energy released into the world has started something transformational. I now wonder what the effect on the world would be and what would happen if we had 100 Moon Mothers sending together!

The rain didn’t stop throughout the evening, although it lessened towards the end. The Divine Feminine was blessing us and all women taking part with her waters of rebirth, of life and of healing. Through the rain she was cleansing us and asking us to let go of our old emotions and patterns. As the mother turtle she was reminding us to go slowly through life, to find the peace within ourselves and to follow her example of floating in the abundance of life sharing generously of our love and our creative energies. Although we didn’t see the Moon her light was with us throughout the ceremony.

Worldwide Womb Blessing 17th DecemberWe finished with the ‘Circle of Sisters’ meditation and in the circle of light, on the back of the turtle, surrounded by darkness, rain drops, fireflies and copal smoke, it was a truly magical moment.

At the end Moon Mother Lilly danced for us and for the Divine Feminine, and then we all celebrated with our Womb Bowl water and nice, although slightly soggy, food to eat!

Usually at the end of the Worldwide Womb Blessing the energy and network dissipates – but not this time. The Womb Blessing energy anchored into the island and the cenote, and is now a nexus for the energy and for the network of Moon Mothers and women in the Womb Blessing family.

I feel that the energy work we did as Moon Mothers was very important and it is something that we will do again. This experience has inspired me with an image for a painting, and although I now have little time or space at home to paint, I hope that I will be able to make time in January to give expression to the vision.

I would particularly like to thank Belinda who made this whole trip and the event possible. No one really sees all the work she does behind the scenes and it is with deep heartfelt gratitude I give her my love and thanks.

I would also like to thank the ‘helpers’ and ‘smudgers’, and finally the wonderful couple Daniele and Ayram who not only allowed us to use the cenote but also gave so freely of their time and energy to help us create the event. They are guardians of a beautiful and sacred site, and now they are also linked to the Womb Blessing energy.

I would also like to thank Debs who was left behind in the UK to help with the practicalities of the Womb Blessing.

Finally I would like to thank my husband. There are many wonderful men helping to support us in the Womb Blessing. Without my husband’s love, energy and support, I would not be able to offer my service so easily to the Divine Feminine and to the women she calls to me.

I hope you will all join us for the next Worldwide Womb Blessing in February 2014!

Love and hugs

An invitation to all women…

to receive the NEW distant worldwide Earth-Yoni Initiation

from Miranda Gray

and learn how to give an Earth-Yoni Blessing,

on Sunday 24th November 2013

Earth-Yoni Blessing with Miranda Gray

Register to recieve the initiation at one of two times:

15.00 (UK time) 23.00 (UK time)

Registration closes 24.00 (UK time) Saturday 23rd November.

Online access is only required for registration and for receiving the manual.

> Register now your chosen initiation time

> How to register and take part.

The Earth-Yoni Blessing

The Earth-Yoni Blessing is a beautiful gift of love from the Divine Mother to heal our Yoni (the vagina and vulva area), to return our Yoni to sacredness, and to reconnect us with the Earth Mother.

The Yoni is the sacred shrine of femininity. It is the entrance to the deep mystery of the soul and of life, and it is our connection to the Earth Mother and our ability to open and to fill with her energy. The Earth-Yoni Blessing is offered in the year of the Mother archetype at a time when the world needs the gentle strength and love of the Mother.

The Earth-Yoni Initiation

The Earth-Yoni Initiation is a distant energy alignment that empowers the women taking part anywhere in the world to give the Earth-Yoni Blessing to other women.

Every woman taking part in the Initiation receives a manual telling her how to take part at her chosen time and also showing her how to give the Earth-Yoni Blessing to other women.  No further training is required to give the Earth-Yoni Blessing to others – it is a simple sharing of energy and love.

This beautiful Blessing is gentle in its simplicity and powerful in its love. It is a way for us to heal, but also to acknowledge the beauty, strength and love in each other.

Please invite other women to receive the Earth-Yoni Initiation -and then please give the Earth-Yoni Blessing to others to bring love and healing to all women.

For the Earth-Yoni Initiation I am asking for a small donation to help support the costs and administration of the Worldwide Womb Blessing. Please give whatever you can to help us to continue to reach more women and to help them change themselves, their lives and the world.

The Earth-Yoni Blessings resonates with the heart and I am looking forward to sharing this energy. I hope you will join me.

Love and hugs, Miranda

The Moon tonight in the South of England is amazing. As I sit and type I see her face through my window. Tonight it was a wonderful experience to be without the candles for the Blessing and to be bathed in her silver-white light.

The 18.00 Womb Blessing always has the largest number of women joining and the energy flowed in beauty and love. There is always so much energy shared throughout the World after the Blessing as we connect woman-to-woman to embrace the Earth. There is no force, no will, just the simple, gentle, loving connection between us and the flow of peace, well-being and love from the presence of the Divine Feminine.

In our busy lives the Divine Feminine gives us the beautiful gift of the Blessing as a moment of peace, of acceptance, of connection to Her presence within us. She reminds us what it is to be feminine. She reminds us to drop the emotional baggage, the mental worries, the wants and needs, and to simply dance in the Moonlight, focused on our body, in the moment at peace with ourselves and the World.

Thank you Mother for this wonderful gift.

Help us to remember it in our hectic lives and in a World that doesn’t recognize our cyclic nature. Help us to awaken to our authentic femininity, to accept our cyclic gifts, and to express this nature and these gifts in the world. We are the Moon on Earth – seen as our phase and never as the whole cycle until we transform into the ‘Complete Woman’ of menopause.

In the Moonlight of the last Blessing there is a silence in the air. It is the same as the reverend hush you get after first snowfall, the lull in the storm, the moment between the in and the out breath and the pivot of the high tide. For a moment the world pauses.

Be at peace.

Love and hugs

Miranda

It was wonderful to have so many women joining me this morning 🙂

Thank you to the Moon Mothers who helped to share this beautiful energy with the World.

This morning began for me at early light and just as I started the first Worldwide Womb Blessing of the day the sun rose washing everything in beautiful golden light. The season in England is behind and it has taken it until now to have the leaves appear on the trees and the hawthorn to become covered with small snowflake-like flowers. All around the land has finally awoken to the first energies of the Mother – abundance, vibrancy, beauty, sensuality, creativity and fertility.

The energies of this Worldwide Womb Blessing are amazing. Today is a Super Moon, a lunar eclipse and the Buddhist festival of Wesak. This is a year of Mother archetypal energies and this Womb Blessing is the Blessing of the Mother. Her presence was gentle and compassionate, embracing and accepting, healing and awakening.

In this Womb Blessing we can offer the Divine Feminine our relationship with our own mother and our children to heal. We can give Her our guilt and frustration, our hurt and pain, and in the rite of passage that is the Womb Blessing we can move on to a new path with renewed hope, lightness and joy. We can give Her our sexuality, our feelings about our body, our past hurts and past  sexual relationships. And we can move on. We can ask Her to deepen the spirituality of our sexuality, to awaken our energies if they have grown cold or have been repressed, or to balance them if they are too demanding. We can ask Her to rekindle the joy of sex, the playfulness of sex, the sacredness of sex, and the mystery of sex.

Whatever the season of the land where you live – hot, dry, wet, cold, bright or dark – connect to the Mother energies as she wraps the World today in her embracing Womb Blessing. Whether we have children or not, are fertile or not, want children or not, we all hold the Mother archetypal energies within us. We are all vessels for the Divine Mother. Let Her speak to you. Let Her calm you. Let Her make you feel safe, and let go. And let Her guide you to Her expression in the World.

Love and hugs

Miranda
