Custodian Of The Earth
Excerpt From Heart Mother Crone
Chapter Fifteen... Womb Of Wisdom, The Sacred Journey Of Menopause

Written & Illustrated by Roslyne Sophia Breillat

She embodies every Goddess, she embodies every woman, she embodies every star. She embodies the wise and beneficent spirit of her beloved Mother Earth. And she embodies the vast and mysterious spirit of the Universal Mother. She is lightness. She is darkness. She is protectress, creatress, matrix, matriarch. She is the womb of the heart, she is the heart of the womb, she is the giver of life. She is the beauty of wisdom. She is the serenity of grace. Her purpose is no longer to give life through giving birth, but to be the truth of life and to live the transformation of rebirth. She is the essence of power. She is holy and wholly woman. She is richly and essentially female. She is.

A man can sometimes fear the power of this wise woman, for she offers a depth of love that can only flower through fully living the divine truth of menopause. To meet her in this place, he must also experience profound transformation, healing and a willingness to find his essence reflected within her depths. The modern woman, alienated from her vast and mysterious truth of love, from her natural union with the earth, from the stillness of her female spirit, frequently experiences difficulty with menopause.

For her outer world has seduced her far from the subtlety and strength of her wise woman ways. Her feet teeter and swagger and sway above stiletto heels, above hard concrete, above hard asphalt, above the glorious earth that is her very support, the very essence of her being. Her toes have forgotten the blissful sensuality and the exquisite joy of merging with soft sand, with flowing water, with moist mud, with velvet grass. Her mind has forgotten the intuitive knowing of her heart and her womb has forgotten it is love. She is no longer grounded within the spirit of the earth. And she is no longer grounded within the compassionate wisdom of her womb. The culture she lives in, so obsessed with falsity, with superficiality, with materialism, with youth, so terrified of love, of death, so afraid of sacredness, of intimacy, of passion, of truth, denies her the rightful power and rightful place of the menopausal woman. And so she is denied the wise bounty, deep purpose and essential wisdom of this powerful transformation. Menopause is an ocean, a flame, a well, a depth, a volcano, a tornado, a dance, a flow, an inner death and rebirth that bestows new passion, new purpose, new maturity, new contentment, new joy, if fully lived from the heart. Menopause is a liberation of love, a deepening of truth, a fire of transformation. Like Kali, it destroys, like the Priestess, it initiates, like the Medicine Woman, it heals, like the Guru, it awakens. Menopause offers an exquisite presence of deeper wisdom, of deeper power, of deeper love.

Menopause offers woman with the gifts to live, every moment, as wise as the serpent, as gentle as the dove. Menopause shows her how to live in the world, but not of it. If she is willing to open, to trust, to surrender to the power of her wise and ancient knowing, this becomes her key to the portal of and peace and freedom when faced with the ignorant ways of the world. If she resists the offering of this new freedom of spirit, she will shrink and she will implode. She will doubt. She will stagnate. She will fear. She will hold her heart and her hands and her vagina and her womb tightly closed. She will not be able to open her eyes, her arms, her heart to the new life of transformation being offered to her. She will not be free to dance in the flames of new beginnings, to fly upon the outspread wings of change, to listen to the wise whisperings of her being, to the loving wisdom of Heart Mother Crone. She will not know the fulsome emptiness of inner silence. She will not know the sacred presence of the wild wise woman. She will not know who she is.

Listen to her heartbeat. Listen to her call. Listen to her silence. Listen to her stillness. Listen to her depth. Feel her pulse of life within your belly, within your yoni, within your womb, within your heart. Breathe her exquisite power and wisdom and beauty into these sacred places, long lost and repressed and forgotten by western civilisation, and yet so very much alive within you right now.

Sophia offers two courses at the Wise Woman University:

~ Being Woman ~ (detailed description of Being Woman online course)

This six week online course provides a sacred and nurturing space where woman can learn to surrender more deeply to the natural receptivity of the female psyche. "...so blessed to have had gentle words of encouragement and support from you through the "Being Woman" course at W.W.U.... You have inspired me to continue my quest... Thanks so much!"

~ Dawning of Wisdom ~ (detailed description of Dawning of Wisdom online course)

Throughout this series of lessons she will learn to trust the innate flow of her intuitive nature and to listen more intimately to the wellspring of her inner source. And we will explore together how to live more fully as the embodiment of the feminine essence within the structures of a masculine civilisation.

"I LOVE your class, it is beautiful and thought provoking and well done... Thank you Sophia for your role as wisdom keeper, confidante and mentor."
