    Self-Initiation: Reclaiming The Womb

    Self-Initiation: Reclaiming The Womb

    Through oceans of time, women have been in some form of subjugated position and have looked outside of ourselves for our spiritual path and autonomy over our own bodies.
    This has resulted in a collective power imbalance that helps neither men nor women.
    Our collective dissociation from, general disgust with and medicalisation of the womb and menstrual cycle, has put a woman’s womb in a vulnerable position, leaving the door open for patriarchal systems based on external authority and validation, to take power over a woman’s reproductive system and cyclic nature.
    However, there IS a movement of women, a movement of consciousness, that wants to redress this imbalance. 
    In order to actualise this shift, we as women must make the changes within and take responsibility for our own body, our own empowerment, and our own evolution.
    This Ceremony gives the framework, guidance and practices to embody our seat of power, The Sacred Womb. 
    Or construct your own Ceremony – my message here is that we CAN redress the power imbalance by doing the inner work.

    The Sacred Womb Book Is Coming!

    The Sacred Womb Book Is Coming!

    Welcome back to the podcast after an 8 month break! I give an update on what’s been happening the last year, details of my move to Thailand and an update on The Sacred Womb Book. 
    Below is a summary of THE Book 🙂
    For millennia, women have been in a subjugated position. Handing on over our power for safety, protection, and money and care. And it’s not worked. We have ended up struggling with a collective power imbalance, and in order to redress this, we must make the changes within and stand up to take responsibility for our own evolution.
    Women are becoming more empowered. Yet something is missing. It’s our Womb. An organ that nurtures life, without it the human race would die out. Yet it is a part of the female body that has been attacked, pushed away and ignored for as long as HIStory dates back. 
    Women generally don’t like their menstrual cycle. And that’s just the first level. This disdain ripples out into not liking their womb & whole reproductive system, which holds the power to birth consciousness in the form of babies and new concepts and ideas for the evolution of the human collective.
    Our collective consciousness is starting to shift though. Periods are becoming less taboo, there a few books on the shelves of mainstream book shops; periods have been addressed on screen, for instance in Sex In The City 2, and a feature length cartoon; period advice features in magazines; we have great period pants (a wonderful advancement from the old inch thick surf boards, no wonder we dreaded ‘that time of the month’!) Some secondary schools are starting to teach cycle awareness to girls; there are several podcasts out about periods, some extending to the power of the womb; and in general conversation between women, it’s much more of an open topic. 
    This is all a great start. Yet is it just the beginning.
    Generational trauma and emotional pain from this life show up in the menstrual cycle, in many different ways, and it will be empowering for women to understand how to read these signs and symptoms, so that they know how to navigate their healing process from the inside out. 
    This sort of grounded information is not yet written down. These two topics are not yet written down and linked in a way that women have access to. This book does that, in a very practical, grounded way that will guide women to heal.
    What is also not yet written is the true power of a woman to birth new consciousness for personal and collective evolution . 
    A grand concept, yes. Yet, I have been doing this for years myself, and training women how to do it. It works. 
    This is a handbook for the empowerment of women: through the physical womb, the energetic womb and the collective womb. It is a book that will make a place in time, where women were given the information, guidance, healing information and practices to re- embody the wisdom of their true nature. 
    It will redirect women from looking outside themselves for their power – to a source within that is Divinely designed.
