This sacred power available to the menopausal woman is the power of wisdom infused with the power of love. It is the power of the female spirit infused with the power of justice and strength. It is the power of experience infused with the power of maturity. It is the power of life infused with the power of the feminine psyche. It is the power of transformation infused with the power of the womb. It is the power of the earth infused with the power of the moon. It shines with a calm serenity. It glows with a gentled grace. And it embraces a gentle strength.
It creates many changes. It takes her where she dared not go before. It knows no boundaries and it knows no fear. This power that is offered to the menopausal woman knows no structures and it knows no limitations. It simplifies her life. It makes her delightfully ordinary and yet she becomes extraordinary through living it in its entirety.
It gifts her with infinite courage and it awakens the joyous singing of her wise heart. It dances through the flow of her words and it speaks from the depths of her womb consciousness. It demands that she be true. It is honest and it is straight. It compels her to let go. It calls her to move on. It filters throughout her daily life. It shines an iridescent light within the heart of darkness. And it prevents her from living a deadening and disempowering life of familiarity, of compromise, of fear. If she ignores this wise heart of her menopausal fire she will never experience the full beauty or the true purpose of her female power. The intensity of this transformational power culminates within a potent climacteric point during the peak of her menopausal phase, where the richness of her life experiences and the fullness of her wisdom merge within the alchemical glow of her menopausal cauldron of rebirth.
This menopausal Goddess of Power becomes relentless, as she asks her to give up, to give in, to give over to the emerging wisdom of her deepening truth within. She asks her to fearlessly trust. She asks her to graciously receive. She asks her to listen to her heart. She demands her to listen to her inner muse. She compels her to honour, to integrate and to receive the inexplicable mysteries of her wise female ways. She enfolds her in her arms and she holds her hand and she asks her to rest peacefully in the abundant lap of Mother Earth for a while. And she leads her into unknown territory where fear no longer abides.
She reveals the sacred knowing of her womanly mystery. She awakens her passion for life and she deepens her desire for truth. She rebirths her as the profundity of the wild wise woman. She calls her to be unique. She calls her to be different, to become authentic, to embrace the many treasures bequeathed through change. She casts a shining light upon her actions and upon her deeds. If she ignores the irresistible dance of this power, she will never realise the full potential of her femaleness. If she is ruthlessly honest, she will be compelled to embrace this power, to surrender to this power, to live from this power, to love from this power. When she becomes infused with the richness of this power, she can never go back. She can never return to where she was before this tumultuous adventure of menopause began to rock the familiar comfort of her cosy world.
