Mythic Tales And The Moon: Letting Go.

heart-brainI’m supposed to be preparing you for a four-part re-blog of an epic tale about being buried alive for 12 hours as a shamanic ritual. But you might just have to wait for one post because I have a lot of energies swirling through my being at this moment and I think that putting it into words may be therapeutic  for me. And maybe even for you!

catmoonI’ve been noticing this little bit of anxiety in my belly the last couple of days and I do have a big event coming up in the next few days so you may think that is what it’s all about. But the thing is this feels quite familiar and I associate it with my moon time coming up, but not all the time. When there is a lot of ‘stuff’ coming up for me it can really impact me in the days before I begin to bleed. The menstrual flow is a grand opportunity for all that ‘stuff’ to move and to be released from the body. Not just physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually, you might think of it as a cosmic clean out.

So it makes me a bit sad to hear young women regarding their moon bleed as a nuisance, it is a time when women can become more intuitive, receptive and powerful. It requires a shift from the perception of power to be all in the physical tangible world that is prescribed by the current paradigm. Instead value is given to understanding the realms of the unconscious, the deep mysteries that we are all a part of whether we are conscious of it or not.

Anyway I am trying to harness this power right here and now in my preparation time for going away to the Joining Gathering. It is a good reminder to embrace whatever feelings are moving in me, the good, the bad, and the ugly! As I write this I begin to feel a shift in the anxiety, it feels more like excitement. I know what I have to do, I need to write my story now as a mythic tale so that all the conditions become my path to wisdom and love. Or at least start thinking like that, no time for me to tell you that story so can we make a deal? You go off and give it a go for yourself, tell your life story as if it were a mythic tale. And feel free to share any experiences you may have.

Cycles And Shifts Bringing Us Closer Connection.

moontime connectionHello and yes I will continue the story of the commoner princess by and by, but for today’s sharing I want to talk about different states of consciousness, a topic that has fascinated me for years. For women it is probably easier in some ways to comprehend the ways in which we shift from one state to another, at least in theory. We have a monthly shift which is our moon time, and even though women in western culture are not taught to value this phenomenon, it is an opportunity to become more sensitive and able to perceive inner transformation.

It’s not often I have anything that could be described as PMT but I’ve felt my menstrual flow on the way for the last few days and found myself over sensitive to physical touch and very emotional. My Beloved and I ended up going from passion to me being held as I felt almost like crying, distressed but for no perceivable reason. He was rather excited but could feel where I was and accepted with great grace that I had things moving and he needed to hold space for me rather than make love.

The next day I watched lots of “Charmed” episodes and didn’t do too much and my Beloved was there when I needed him to be and I was left to myself as needed, quite perfect! A perfectly normal situation for many couples, can you see how ignoring the feminine shift into pre-moon time could create arguments and separation, imagine how often that has actually happened to people. Recognising cycles and accepting what they bring to us, responding to what is in the present instead of what we think should be there, here is an approach that can bring two people closer together. There is nothing more attractive than someone who really gets you!

Shape-shifter, shaman, prophetic visionary, healer. Oh, hello everything that I desire to embody, and do so, even as I am a little bit freaked out/scared/wonder why I couldn’t've just been some ‘more normal’ instead. http://www.janeofardis.com/tag/goddesses/

Of course tuning into cycles is going to be an asset whether you are in a relationship or not, it can help you to be in the energetic flow of your life, wherever that journey may be heading for you.
