Female Empowerment Poem

Honoring Our Cycle is

Honoring our Divine Female Soul.­

Spring Enlivens Us Because

We Embrace the Winter,

The Full Moon Enchants Us Because

We Invite the New Moon to Wash Over Us,

The Light Nurtures Us Because

We Walk Through the Darkness with Grace.

Females who Embrace Life In the Flow of

Their Cyclical Nature,

Walk in Empowerment

With the Natural Beauty of Themselves.

Period Power, Menstrual Magic, Womb Wisdom!

Jaine Rose Sister Moon Women's power rests in our ability to create. We create when we conceive and birth children. This same amazing energy gives us the ability to create ideas and birth them to fruition.

Women hold this feminine creative power (intuition, creativity, wisdom) in their menstrual / period cycle. The wisdom of our heads and our lives are mirrored in our womb; the wisdom of our womb is mirrored in our heads. It is a menstrual magic thing!

Learning (re-learning, as this wisdom was always a part of female's heritage) the wisdom around our monthly menstrual cycle is very empowering. We can harness the specific creative power of where we are in our menstrual cycle to enhance our daily and monthly "tasks" and to plan self-care. Healing the female you are is enhanced when this Moon Cycle Wisdom is re-learned.

The concept of living from the space of your menstrual cycle is ancient. Women are primarily cyclical beings. (Men are primarily linear beings. There is a balance in both genders... it is the Yin/Yang thing, the hot/cold, wet/dry, light/dark thing. Nature IS balanced, when left to her own graces, in everything.) Women gathered in moon lodges and shared the beauty and power of being female. I invite you to re-learn this wisdom as part of your personal healing path.

Join me for the Female ♀ Moon Cycle Wisdom Training and reawaken your wisdom. You will heal in your heart, your spirit, and your mind-body. I promise you that you will be glad you did!

Woman's Wisdom

full moon lodge In Native American - Wise Woman tradition there is a philosophy, saying, that when a girl starts her moon cycles she meets her wisdom.

As a woman walks through life experiencing and embracing her womanhood, her moon cycles, she is practicing her wisdom.

When a woman transitions out of her monthly moon cycles, she becomes her wisdom.

What a beautiful way to initiate young girls into the mysteries of womanhood, embracing the very energy and cycles that make her uniquely a woman and her own true self.

What a way to remind woman of the divine aspect of their moon cycles, of their feminine being, the ebb and flow of their life in harmony with nature's cycles (we are nature).

Wherever you are in your moon cycles: beginning flow of teen years into bleeding time womanhood and beyond, use your moon cycles to your best advantage. Recognize the power you have in the early, building, phase of your cycle. Feel your heightened intuition in the few days preceding blood flow. Acknowledge your need to relax and be quiet as you move into the blood flow days of your moon cycle. Use your wisdom "wisely" as you thrive in the moon free, blood free, years of your life.

What might this awareness look like to you?

During the first half of your cycle (end of bleeding to ovulation): say “yes” more often to the “new” opportunities, to people and gatherings, and to meetings and new projects.

During the second half of your cycle (ovulation to next new bleed): say  ”no” more often, focusing more on the “now.”   Use this time to  bring projects and events to completion. Learn to  prioritize what really needs your attention and nurturing.

Protect your alone time, your downtime, as you move into bleeding.  Relax and increase your favorite self-care treatments.  Get a massage or acupuncture treatment.  Learn reflexology and acupressure.  Use these techniques to do home self-care:  gently massage areas that need healing touch.  Treat yourself to a home "spa" day.

Share your feminine wisdom with your daughters, friends, neighbors, grand daughters... make the path for the younger women easier and more sacred than what you may have experienced.

Being female is an amazing gift. We are the creators. Revel in your divine feminine being, nurture her.
