Recently a woman said to me that she had expected that working in a community of women would be full of love and mutual support. But instead she was burnt-out from doing too much, from managing personality clashes between women, and from criticism for what she was doing without any offers of help.

We modern women still have a lot to learn about living together with our authentic femininity.

There are two aspects to this situation, and both involve the archetypes.

In our busy lives with many expectations, the list of ‘things to do’ can be overwhelming, and we try with our Mother and Maiden archetype energies to achieve everything and to satisfy everyone. Our sense of who we are comes from success and productivity and from our ability to express love and caring. But it never seems to be enough – and we start to feel that we are not enough. (more…)

The joy of the awakening Maiden energies

The first warm sunlight touches the forest, and the snow slowly starts to melt. A single green shoot appears from under the snows. From it hangs a small white flower, like a droplet of snow, and it holds the promise of the energies to come.

The energies of life start to flow slowly. It is not a time to act, but a time to watch and to protect the first growth into the world. The Land still remembers the long cold night of winter and the Crone energies, but now it feels the stirring of what is to come. (more…)

News from Miranda

2016 has been an amazing year!

Miranda GrayIt has been a real joy for me to teach again in Spain, France, Italy, Brazil, Switzerland, Belgium, Colombia, Germany, USA (New York), Croatia and England. And to teach for the first time in Portugal, USA (Miami) and Ireland (Dublin). I’ve had the opportunity to meet some amazing women and to work alongside the wonderful organisers and co-ordination teams in these countries. A big thank you to everyone who has helped support me in my work and who has reached out to women to spread the Womb Blessing.

This year we have seen the publication of my book Female Energy Awakening  which provides women with more information about the Womb Blessing and about the process of awakening their authentic femininity through the four female archetypes. It is designed to help women not just to awaken but to live this awakening, and to feel the deep source of well-being, empowerment, creativity, sexuality, spirituality, beauty and wisdom that lies within them.

First woman story

First Woman was washing clothes and blankets by the river when Moon Mother appeared. First Woman had a pile of blankets that the First Animals had asked her to wash as well. She was tired, but happy.

Moon Mother greeted First Woman.

“I’ve been watching you” she said, “and your Womb Bowl is low in energy.”

First Woman looked at her Womb bowl lying in her lower belly, and she noticed with surprise that it was glowing only faintly.

Moon Mother“I have a gift for you” said Moon Mother, and she placed her hands on First woman’s head.

A beautiful ray of moonlight flowed from Moon Mother’s hands down though First Woman’s head, down through her heart and into her Womb Bowl. As her bowl filled, it began to radiate once more with soft white moonlight.

First Woman sighed.

“Thank you, Moon Mother” she said.

“My gift is always there for you whenever you need it” smiled Moon Mother.

A few days later, after helping the Wolf Clan with their boisterous cubs, First Woman looked at her Womb Bowl and saw that it was low in moonlight once again.

Dancing your cycles

Being a woman is a dance of life. It is like being a breath – dancing with the flow of air inwards, feeling the pause of completeness within the full breath, dancing the outbreath, and then resting, empty, full of potential to fill with life once more.

Dancing your cycleWe are weavers as we dance, bringing together the rhythms of the body, of the Moon and of the Earth. The strongest beat is the rhythm of our body – it is the beat that holds us in the world. But above this rhythm is the melody of the cycle of the Moon and of the seasons.

As we move through our menstrual cycle phases, the phases of the Moon and of the seasons can enhance or soften aspects of our body’s archetypal energies*. For example, a Full Moon during our pre-ovulation phase can soften the dynamic energies of the Maiden archetype, making them feel a little more altruistic and less goal-orientated. A decreasing Moon during our pre-ovulation phase can bring more spirituality and intuition to the Maiden’s intellectual abilities.

Many women decide that they would like a cycle in tune with the lunar cycle, but it is the subtle dance of energies between our body, our mind and the Moon’s phases that brings us the deep, rich and abundant variety of female energies. To dance with just the rhythm of our body is to miss the beautiful melody that intertwines with it. (more…)

A vision for womenIn societies where women are unaware of their authentic female nature, there are no authentic women to show them how to live and work in a way that is different to that of men.

Behaving and thinking like men may bring material success, or safety and security, but it comes at a high price: guilt, emotional and mental disruptions, and stress and disharmony in the body and its cycles. So many women ache to feel whole, validated for who they are, and to feel confident and strong in their femininity and self-worth.

But it only takes one woman to start living aspects of her authentic nature to begin to change the world. (more…)

A short guide by Advanced Moon Mother and German Co-ordinator HeliA, with additional materials on Red Tents from Advanced Moon Mother Belinda García Reyes.

In this article I would love to share some of our experiences and show how much fun it is, and how easy it is, to run a Worldwide Womb Blessing group.

Why do we need space for the feminine?

In this world of constant demands on our energies and of the constant need to fulfill goals and meet expectations, we need safe, warm islands, where we can rest, recharge, and return to ourselves. The Worldwide Womb Blessing, founded by the wonderful Miranda Gray, is one of these beautiful islands, which reminds us – through the awakening of our feminine energies – of the beauty and creative power of our femininity.
