Mother Of All She Who Knows
An Excerpt From Womb Of Wisdom, The Sacred Journey Of Menopause
Written & Illustrated by Roslyne Sophia Breillat

During this menopausal phase, a woman can experience a profound death of the habitual and ignorant ways she has previously imbibed. There is a sudden realisation that she can never return to inner and outer places that once fed her, fuelled her, nourished her. An inner gathering and culmination takes place, where all her previous experiences are integrated within. The love, joy and suffering she has previously known transform into deepening wisdom. An intimate evaluation of her former life takes place, creating much transformation and healing and more joy for living in the present moment.

This evaluation creates more harmony, more balance, more contentment in her relationships and in her life. The opportunity and potential to deeply enter and experience her body as a beautiful sacred temple can be very real for her at this time. Through honouring and enjoying her individuality in myriad new ways, she is now receiving the opportunity to become free of society’s untruths about ageing. And she is learning, through her menopausal rebirth, that true wisdom is contained within the awareness that life and death walk together in perfect harmony. As her sacred inner knowing reveals to her the beginning of new life, she can truly use this gestation period as a preparation for birthing the new. Her body knows what it is doing, and developing loving communion with it will create true feminine empowerment and humility.

There is usually a phase with no sense of outer direction, while the source of her creative and transforming womb energy ignites her inner fires of change. From this place of deepening union, she can now move forward. Like her tribal sisters, the modern woman can learn to flow with the natural rhythms of her body and with the natural rhythms of the earth. Through intuitive sensing and deepening stillness, she will unite with a calm and steady inner power that rests beneath the tumult of change. Menopause is traditionally a time of assimilation, solitude, retreat, contemplation, healing and release. Through sensitively attuning her inner focus, more harmony is created. And through trusting in her menopausal needs, she will know inner peace.

Her unfolding wisdom is birthed from the innately intimate source of female mystery within her womb. Menopause is not an illness. It is a deeply profound transformation fuelled by the vibrant fires of inner metamorphosis. Any disharmony she may feel during this upheaval of change will potentially bring harmony. Any imbalance that she may feel will bring balance if she trusts her body and listens within. Through truly honouring this rite of passage, she is honouring her life on earth as a woman and as a wise woman. She will then be able to unite with the silent stillness, integral detachment and gentle inner strength of true maturity and grace.

This is a sacred time of infinite patience and enlivening sensitivity, contained within the stillness of waiting without actually waiting for anything to happen, as she learns to drink deeply from her well of wisdom. Her inner state is worthy of her reverence and attention, for in this dark and unfamiliar void of unknowing, she finds her love, her truth, her power. After courageously moving through disequilibrium and change, she rests more contentedly in her being. The psychological death and rebirth of menopause can richly activate the impersonal power of the ancient priestess and the serene integrity of the wise sage, whose sacred knowing reveals the richness and freedom of a new phase of life.

She has softened, opened, mellowed, ripened, deepened. Enriched by the fire of her menopausal transformation, she now feels at ease within these tides of change. She can now live as Mother of All, as Mother of Earth, serving others from a place of impersonal love, renewed vitality and deepening power. After completing this profound transition, she will never be the same woman again. She has reached a place of inner harmony. She has reached a place of inner peace.
