There is so much more to our cycle than we give credit to! There is magic inherent in the menstrual cycle and we should pay much more attention to it! Our body sends us all the messages needed throughout the cycle to help us heal and spiritually grow as much as we could possibly want! All that is needed is to connect more deeply with this powerful potential is to connect and understand the cycle happening to us over and over again.
It is in fact one way she can participate, in helping to correct the imbalances that have been created through not honouring the feminine. An issue that we must address so that we can live harmoniously on our planet. Through honouring your menstrual cycle, you help heal the “wounded feminine” the symptoms of which ravage the Earth and most of her people. By honouring her cycle a woman honours the feminine, the dark, the juicy, the mysterious, the feminine power of creativity, sexuality and our Mother Earth.””
Here is some powerful information regarding the menstrual cycle via moonsong.com
“So, the cycle:-
The menstrual cycle is a cycle within a cycle. The bigger cycle is the woman’s life cycle, her life seasons, which are just like the Earth’s seasons.
Spring – Maiden, Summer – Mother, Autumn – Maga, Winter – Crone.
Every cycle is the same as every other cycle, just different lengths.
The cycle goes – birth, growth, full bloom, harvest, decay, death, rebirth.
The menstrual cycle is the same cycle.
And it is also divided into four quarters like the Earth’s seasons.
Weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4.
If you have a cycle that is consistently longer or shorter than 28/29 days it’s the first half of the cycle that is shortened or lengthened.
Provided that you are ovulating, the second half of the cycle is fixed and is always the same either 13, 14 or 15 days.
Each week of the fertility cycle is as different to the other weeks as the Earth’s seasons are different to each other.
It’s the characteristics of each of these weeks that are the opportunities for the spiritual practice that I speak of.
Week one resembles spring energy.
Week two summer.
Week three autumn and week 4 winter.
Each week our inclinations, energy levels etc and the messages from our body are different. They speak of the physical situation of that point in the menstrual cycle and the related emotional situation.
So if you know where you are in your cycle you can much more easily ‘go with the flow’ so to speak. You could even manage your life around it. Start new projects in the first and second week of your cycle. Express you creative urges when you have them.
Have parties when you’re ovulating, finish off things in your third week. Stay home, and be on retreat when you’re bleeding.
You’ll have a lot less strife in your third and fourth week if you know you will be retreating when your blood comes, you’ll actually be looking forward to your blood coming, and be ready ‘to let go’.
Here’s an outline of the emotional and psychological energies of the cycle, week by week that you are dealing with, or if you aren’t consciously, give it a go. If you are aware of the specifics of the lunation cycle you will see the direct connection.
Week One (day 1 – first day of bleeding – day 7): Death Rebirth Phase Inwardly focussed, quiet. On retreat or wishing you were or creating situations in your life so people will leave you alone (for example fights).
Visions of how it might be this new cycle.
Letting go of ways or beliefs and attitudes that no longer serve – both metaphorically with your prayers and intentions and literally with your blood.
Spring energy, building as your blood stops flowing.
A time for metaphorically planting seeds for the new cycle.
During bleeding: “I feel quiet, inward”, “I don’t want to be disturbed”.
After bleeding: “I feel soft, a bit vulnerable”, “I feel as if I’m peeking back out at the world ” “Here I come again”.
Week Two (day 8-14): High Energy Creative Phase.
Increasing physical, sexual and creative energy building to a peak at ovulation.
Urgent creative feelings.
Heightened awareness of self and others.
More interested in physical appearance.
“I feel happy, excited, full of energy”, “I can do anything!”
Week Three (day 15-21): Coming Down and Harvest Phase.
Post ovulatory descent – can be positive or negative, a sense of pride or failure.
May experience feelings of failure or elation depending on what you achieved from your creative peak in the few days after your egg has died unfertilised.
“I lost my chance”, “I feel useless”.
“I am so awesome, look what I did!”
May feel relief or regret (at not being pregnant, literally and metaphorically).
Feelings of wanting to get rid of unnecessary things around you or in your life.
Things or ways of being that are no longer working for you show up.
This may be confronting or a relief or both.
Depending on how long you’ve been ignoring these promptings will depend on how you react to them showing up again.
This happens to get your attention so you can let go of them in this and the next phase.
“Everything seems to be hard”, “Nothing feels like its working”.
“I’ve been so busy, I’m so glad I can rest now”.
Week Four (day 22-28):Distillation and Clarity Phase.
Lessons from this cycle are available to be seen and felt.
Either glad of the where you’re at with your life or fed up (again).
Feeling ready to let go and surrender or feeling frustrated and annoyed.
Less interested in everyone else, less available emotionally to others.
“Don’t ask me to do anything, leave me alone”
“I get it now, I’m letting go of this and not taking into my next cycle.”
And of course this all goes for the corresponding moon phases and the seasons as well.
Understanding the way of cycles brings with it an awareness of the flow of energy, the wisdom in that flow and the opportunity to be in synchrony with that flow.
