Sacred Wisdom of Menopause

The sacred wisdom and mysterious profundity of menopause have long been forgotten by western society. This powerful metamorphosis is commonly hidden from husbands, misinterpreted and ridiculed by the media and curiously described as a medical condition in need of a "cure". These ignorant beliefs denigrate the inherent wisdom of the womb and the timeless mystery of the feminine essence, creating separation from the integrity of love and separation from the integrity of the earth.

A woman cannot find her deepest sense of femaleness in the outer world. She finds this by descending within, into the heart of her mystery, the heart of her womb. And here, within this formless place, she comes to life, she comes to rest and she comes home. This sacred journey of menopause is a descent into the female psyche's mysterious depths. Through diving into and being immersed in these wise depths, she reunites with the ancient mystery of menopause, for this powerful transformation is the way of the earth, the way of the womb, the way of the heart. The contemporary world does not want her to awaken during menopause. And yet the earth needs her to awaken, through consciously embracing this important transformation of deepening, of opening, of change. For Mother Earth and her people are in need of many awakened and awakening women of wisdom right now. The wise seeds of menopause arise from the depths of her womb, from the womb of the earth, from the universal and galactic womb. And within these seeds await the wisdom of her female sexuality, the sacredness of the female elder, the grace of true maturity, the radiance of her truth. For to live a womb-centred life is to live a heart-centred life, where the energy uniting heart wisdom and womb wisdom is receptively open and freely flowing.

The menopausal woman, challenged by contemporary society's denigration of the "older" female, is nurtured by loving reflections of real women, unafraid to live from the wholeness of their wisdom, integrity and power. Like a seedling pushing through the moist rich earth, she is inspired by these heart sisters to reach for the vastness of the unknown, beyond all that has previously made her feel secure. The primordial stirring of this raw and primal essence of menopause welcomes her into the transforming power of a tumultuous journey of change. It is an invitation for her to dive deeply beneath society's unreal obsession with youth and aging and to unite with her wisdom, her purpose, her truth.
