Maiden energiesWithin each of us lie four female archetypes – the Maiden, the Mother, the Enchantress and the Crone. During our menstrual cycle we walk a path of embodying the energies of each of these archetypes as they each express themselves through one of the phases of the cycle. They are the Maiden-time pre-ovulation phase, Mother-time ovulation phase, Enchantress-time pre-ovulation phase and Crone- time menstrual phase.

We also have one or two of the archetypes more dominant in our lives, helping to shape our path and guiding us on our soul purpose. When all aspects of our archetypes are welcomed, embodied, celebrated and expressed with love in the world, then we feel complete within ourselves and we live life as a beautiful, creative and spiritual dance of female energies and wholeness.

I think that the October Worldwide Womb Blessing is one of the most impactful Womb Blessings of the year. It brings healing to the sexual energies for all women around the world, but it also brings healing to the energies of women of the past, present and future.

The Archetype Meditations reflect the Earth-to-Womb connection:

In the northern hemisphere we focus on healing our mothers and our female ancestors, and in the southern hemisphere we focus on healing and awakening our sacred female sexual energies. These two aspects have great importance not just for individual lives but also for our society and our future.

By bringing healing and awakening to our womb-to-womb connection (our sexual lineage) we heal not only our own line but the matrilineal line of other women as well. When we go far back in time we all share common ancestors, so when we heal our past we also help all women in the present.

By healing our womb-to-womb connection we free ourselves and our sexual energies from thousands of years of masculine restriction.

In the southern hemisphere we focus on healing specifically our own sexual energies. We free ourselves from our personal sexual experiences, our limiting thoughts about our body, our sexual energies and our sexual identity, and we start to embrace our true nature as sensual, sexual, creative and beautiful women – whatever our age or body shape.

The Worldwide Womb Blessings reflect the Earth-to-Womb connection:

In the northern hemisphere where the Earth is entering her Winter or Crone energies, our womb centre is affected by the energy changing to the slower and more spiritual vibration of the Crone. So many of us need more Crone energy in our lives. We do not rest in menstruation (our ‘Crone-time’), and so we miss the deep restoring and spiritual wisdom and gifts she brings us. The Womb Blessing focuses on bringing awakening and healing to our Crone archetype, to our menstrual phase (if we are cyclic) and to our elder years if we are post-menopause.

In the southern hemisphere, where the Earth is entering her Summer or Mother energies, our womb centre is affected by the abundance and wholeness of the Mother. The Womb Blessing focuses on our emotional awakening and healing, on our relationships, our ability to love and our sexual happiness and fertility. Whatever our age, the Mother energies enter our lives wanting to be expressed, and the Womb Blessing helps us to open to them and to experience the deep love, caring and compassion that is part of our true nature.

This upcoming Worldwide Womb Blessing Day is focused on healing and awakening the creative sexual energies of all women around the world – in the past, in the present and for the future. The Crone heals the sexual line and the energies of past generations, and the Mother heals the present sexual energies and the future sexual line. The Crone awakens a deeper, more spiritual awareness of our sexual nature, and the Mother gives birth to that spirituality in the world through creative, sensual and sexual relationship.

I hope that you will enjoy this amazing Womb Blessing Day!

Love and hugs

The Enchantress Years

Picture from Coka/Shutterstock.com

In our lives we have four phases:

  1. The first stage is that of the Maiden – a time of change, of physical, mental and emotional change into adulthood.
  2. The second stage is the Mother – our adult stage of life, which is usually cyclic and when we stand grounded in the outer world.
  3. The third stage is that of the Enchantress – a time of change, of physical, mental and emotional evolution into completeness.
  4. The fourth stage is that of the Crone – our elder stage of life, where we sit between the worlds.

The Enchantress years can start in our forties as we begin to alter physically and to lose the regularity of our menstrual cycles. We change – our body changes, our emotions change, even the way we think starts to change. And the change doesn’t stop with last menstruation (which is called ‘Menopause’*), it continues after our Menopause, and often it can take up to 10 years before we enter our Crone phase of life where the transformation is complete and our energies are stable.

Earth Yoni BlessingThe Yoni (used here as a name for both the vagina and the vulva) is a sacred shrine. It is the beautiful gateway through which energy from the Earth enters our body, the gateway through which life emerges, and through which we connect to the Earth. The Yoni links the outside world with the inner darkness and spiritual centre of our womb, and grounds us in the Earth. It is the physical shrine of the Divine Feminine in her aspect of young girl, adult woman, mature woman and elder woman. (more…)

Cyclic super woman!Women do not have to do things in the same way as men – we have amazing superpowers within our cyclic nature to do tasks with a uniquely female approach that is equally successful and productive.

In fact, when we look at what women have already achieved working in the same way as men – against their female nature – imagine what we would achieve if we could organise our work to fit our cyclic nature. We would be ‘Optimized Women’ – women who are living and working at their full potential!

So how do we start to use our superpowers? Here are some ideas from my book ‘The Optimized Woman’: (more…)

Spring MaidenThe energies of the earth change during the year depending, on the tilt of the earth towards or away from the sun. At the winter solstice the earth starts to change her direction, and in the northern hemisphere the days start to lengthen – even if we are not aware of it. Traditionally, the time of the Winter Crone began at Halloween and ended around the 1st February when she turns into the Spring Maiden.

The Maiden emerges tentatively from the darkness of the underworld. She is born into a land of snow and ice, of grey skies, leafless trees and icy water. She is inquisitive in her new world, exploring her senses and delighting in everything the world shows her. Depending on local tradition, the Snow Maiden can ride an elk, a polar bear, an ermine, a white winter hare, a wolf or a magical animal. She embodies the openness of a young girl, the innocent joy of the heart, and the lack of deception. She is the curious intellect, the explorer, the path finder pushing through the snows.

First Woman and First Dog

When one of the First Dog clan died, all the First Animals were sad. They held a little ceremony to remember their friend, and First Woman shared stories of how First Dog had travelled with her when she collected mushrooms, how they had played in the river, and how he had dug the earth when she was planting vegetables. Everyone was sad.

After a while, First Animals began to worry about First Woman. She did not weave her blankets or look after her garden. She didn’t make her bread, or visit the animals to help.

First Rabbit took First woman a carrot to cheer her up, but First Woman just sighed a quiet “thank you,” and said nothing more. (more…)
