Greetings, Htp Family!

In our communal ceremonies it is always a blessing when an elder sits and shares wisdom. Especially womb wisdom. Recently, in the Sacred inipi (our traditional sweatlodge), an elder woman shared some womb wisdom that was a reminder for me but I feel is important for me to share with those who may have never heard this.

Our womb blood is sacred. We must cherish our time that we cycle with the moon. Our blood is powerful and can restore balance and harmony on the Earth. Our brothers do not have to keep shedding blood on this land in violence. The Earth needs the balance of our feminine blood. Blood that has no violent energy connected to it. A wombmyn’s blood sacrifice requires no harm to anyone. We can simply go in our backyards and release what is already being released anyway. When we cycle, we need to squeeze our pads and tampons or pour from our menstrual cups into the soil to return our womb blood to Mother Earth. As you offer your blood, you can pray for the senseless killing of our men to cease, you can pray for the fertility of the land, you can pray for the restoration of peace on Earth. After your prayers, you can petition for anything you desire. Our blood is sacred, worthy, and magical. And we get the opportunity every month to perform this sacred ritual.

I will add to this womb wisdom message by encouraging all women (especially during the time of bleeding) to place your hands on your womb. To connect your breath to your womb and hum or sing loving vibrations to your womb. I encourage you to speak positive affirmations and words of gratitude as you hold a downward triangle over your womb. A daily meditation like this along with a large pot of herbal tea (such as raspberry leaf, hibiscus, nettle, dong quai, and ginger), obsidian stone and the blood offering can make our cycles a relaxing and rejuvenating time that we actually look forward to.

I am looking forward to the days we return to the ways of the moon lodge. A space in time where wombmyn gather to bleed together, to dance, to cry, to nourish, nurture, and celebrate one another and the gift of womanhood. Inspired by the womb work and womb wisdom that has been present, I am working on creating sacred spaces for our young girls who are transitioning into moon cycles so that we can communally support them as we all wish we could of had for ourselves. It is time to end the reality where young women are ashamed of their menses. It is time to end the reality where women are not taught the divinity of their feminine energy and the sacredness of their womb portals. We are in the paradigm shift of women owning their power at a young age in grace, harmony and respect of the divine masculine. We are in the rise of the Goddess.

Love and light,  Today I want to talk about preparation. Sometimes we get a feeling about some aspect of life but we don't know what to do about it. We meditate on it but the answer is still unclear. This is not a time to be confused or worried, this is a time for faith and preparation! For example, my heart has been calling me to move out of Atlanta for some time now. I'm not exactly sure where I'm going to go or what I'm going to do but my spirit says that it is time for new horizons. Therefore, I am preparing my life to be able to move. When the time is right I trust that the Creator will reveal opportunities for me. All I must do is be prepared so that when the time comes I can act without hesitation. It's like knowing you want to travel abroad and you may not know when, where or how but if you take that first step of getting a passport, then when the perfect opportunity presents itself you will be ready to take it! Because you did your work the Universe will align all that is necessary to bring your goals to fruition! As co-creators of our reality it is important to plan our lives but also to know that the Divine is aware of our desires and that we will not always attain our goals the way we planned. Many times God will have a plan for us bigger than what we can see or comprehend. Even when it seems as if we have failed, there's always an opportunity to learn and grow consequently achieving more than we initially set out to achieve. It's all about trusting God's plan, having faith in the Creator as Source, and moving with confidence in our actions towards our goals. It is also important to be able to surrender to the flow, knowing at any moment everything can be flipped over to create a new challenge or opportunity. Being grateful for it all allows you to be in that flow with grace just as being prepared will allow you to make the most of every moment that flows to you. I've heard that luck is when opportunity meets preparation; so do your part and allow God to do the rest!
