🌖Blood Moon Menstralia 🌔

  • Painting with my moon blood is a reclamation practice for me… One of the many ways I have found to change my relationship with what used to be ‘the red curse’ (to read about my journey with my blood see here ) Those who know me, know I have struggled most of my life with very heavy and painful cycles, as a teenager, I really hated it and longed to get rid of it.
    But about 10 years ago I began the slow journey of relationship with my blood and my womb
    🔻
    I now see my cycle as the barometer of my physical, emotional and energetic health…
    As a potent time of release, renewal, cleansing, letting go on all levels…
    A time of heightened psychic/spiritual and creative intensity…
    And as a very natural and beautiful part of my cyclic nature… When I am able to take the space to rest and be with it, to let go fully into it- it doesn’t hurt nearly as much and I have actually come to love the energy of this time. In contrast, when I’m busy and have lots of demands on my energy- I feel drained and irritable.

    This practice was introduced to me by a friend and has become one of my favorite ways to work creatively with the energy of my moon time🔻 and to dissolve what remains of my menstrual shame.
