Celebrating Change-Ability in Women – by Jane Catherine
Something has been missing from the world for a long, long time – so long that we don’t even recognise the vacuum its absence creates in the way we are living on our Planet. Like the legendary Holy Grail, it holds the potential to heal and restore what is ailing in us and our relationship with Nature.
The good news is, our lost treasure is alive and well and living amongst us every day – all that hides it from view is our unawareness of it. Re-awakening that awareness is a joyous and amazing journey of discovery, inviting women and the men who love them to literally see themselves in a whole new light.
The sequence of changes that all women navigate from Menarche (first period), through their years of Menstrual Cycles, the intense transformation of Menopause and on into Mature Life is much more potent than we have been allowed to know. It doesn’t even have a name in our language, so I am calling it “Menstruality” – an exquisitely designed matrix for our optimum psychospiritual development. Sadly, in our busy and demanding world, Menstruality is not accepted or supported, and we are expected to live as if it were not happening. This is tragic! It blinds us to our greatest asset!
It is this ancient and entrenched resistance to women’s Menstruality (not our “faulty” hormones) that makes us live against the flow of our own nature, and gives us all the trouble we have, especially with Premenstrual, Menstrual and Menopausal changes.
The art of re-cognising (knowing in a different way) the original, intricate, beautiful and purposeful design of our feminine changes is called Conscious Menstruality. It’s a non-medical (cycle-logical) approach! What is revealed when we learn how to read Menstruality on its own terms is the most amazing way of life, opening us to the different needs, consciousness, energies and aptitudes each phase offers us, and taking advantage of the changes to enhance our life to the max. Conscious Menstruality works wonders in our personal life, work life, relationships, parenting, creativity – every aspect. We realise too how intimately our feminine nature resonates with every cycle and rhythm in Nature, giving us a multi-faceted mirror to look in to make sense of ourselves just the way we are designed to be. Conscious Menstruality is about waking up to the Laws of Nature inside us, and living according to them instead of trying to over-ride them. They work perfectly!
Our beloved Planet Earth is entering times of accelerated change and disruption, similar to women’s Premenstrual and Menopausal changes, and with the very same purpose. The more women are willing to understand their own Change-Ability and become consciously adept in it, the more we will be able to guide and mother humanity through the enormous changes that are coming. The Holy Grail of Conscious Menstruality has never been more needed. Let’s say Yes to its presence inside us and learn the sublime secrets it has to teach us.
