The Wild Path of the Sacred Feminine - The Wild Mirror, Surrendering, & Being of Service in a Patriarchal Paradigm

The wild path of the Sacred Feminine. Treading places unseen, unknown, deeply mysterious and yet achingly familiar and so very longed for. Our overwhelmingly patriarchal western world leaves little room for ‘believing in’ these wild, magical ways, led alone for engaging with, embracing or inviting them in to our lives without cynicism, ridicule, doubt or judgement, either from ourselves, others or both. And yet the realness and sense of absolute necessity deep within us - the drive to connect with this path as a matter of fact - can be facilitated with far greater ease, and more profoundly obvious, clear and tangible results than we can even begin to imagine.

Our wild places do not need tending, fencing, managing. The shadowy tangled pathways within us and outside of us do not need pruning, dead-heading, cutting back. They also don’t need our ignorance, pretending they don’t exist, or wishing they were something other than what they are for the sake of ease or comfort or pleasure. They need our acceptance, gentleness, understanding, honouring. They need to be valued and protected for the absolutely essential role that they play in our very existence. The paths of the Sacred Feminine need the space and protection to be exactly as they are, allowed to be and move and dance as she will, with no expectation of change or facilitation for the sake of others, to become more useful, to give us a more palatable and yet dishonest experience of what she is. She needs to be allowed to be what she is at her very core. No more, and no less. We are the wild, and the wild is us. When we bridge this artificial induced separation we open a portal for growth, expansion and connection back to the source of all things, and back to ourselves.

Creating Flower Essences

Each flower, and each plant in fact, can be seen as holding a set of principles, archetypes, or energetic patterns that can be related to all levels of our humanity - the body, the mind, the emotional body and the spirit or energy body. Flower Essences are as gentle as they are powerful, safe and easy to use for all ages, during pregnancy, and for animals, they do not interact with medications or herbs, and they bring a little bit of magic to every healing journey. The best part about them is that they are so easy to make at home!

Calling in Freyja - Boldness, Way-faring, Passion

Freyja holds a unique medicine. She has a soft, sensual heart, as well as the ability to fearlessly defend herself, and fight for what she needs, desires and believes in. To effortlessly stand in her truth, know her heart and mind clearly, and not flinch if the time comes to defend it. To be able to embody compassion while not shying away from wielding the anger or self-respect needed to defend ourselves is largely a lost art.

For me, Freyja is who I call upon her when I am in need of help maintaining healthy boundaries, when I really need to back myself in a belief or dispute, or when i am at risk of folding my needs or desires to make someone else happy or ok at my expense. She sets me straight (I literally feel myself standing taller after calling her!) and reminds me of the hows and whys I need to follow my heart and mind. She is also a close sister when I am struggling to step into an element of my sexuality, or if I'm feeling shy in my body, and gives me the confidence and self-belief to strongly soften into myself. Many times she has empowered me to clear a path to find myself, and then protect and defend myself with everything I have.

Introduction to Healing Your Menstrual Cycle

Your Menstrual Cycle is so much more than basic evidence of fertility. Did you know that each month, your menstrual cycle is an opportunity to check-in on the status of your health, both physically and emotionally? Or that getting to know your cycle more deeply is the first step on the path to deeper healing, all-round better health, and increased self-awareness and understanding? What if I took that a little next level, and told you that getting to know your own cycles can also set you up to be more closely connected with the cycles of the earth, the moon, and your over-arching life cycle too? And that you can even use your menstrual cycle as a way of checking in with yourself, your goals, your ability to manifest, and your ability to release and let go of that which no longer serves, to help you move forward on your life path?

You may raise an eyebrow. You might even raise both. And I would nod knowingly and grin wickedly at you. It’s all true. Your menstrual cycle is all those things and more.
