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

After emptying, filling and replenishing for many months and many years with the spiralling phases of the Moon, her body is now rapidly changing. These subtle yet profound changes are often felt as dramatic, disorienting, disturbing and erratic. And like her beloved Mother Earth, her cyclic transformations are birthed through chaotic upheaval and a need for renewal.

If she is experiencing intense emotional, physical or psychological chaos, this can be minimised through simplifying her outer life as much as possible. She will eventually become aware of the stillness that rests beneath disharmony and the tranquillity that rests beneath disequilibrium. For menopause is a time for clearing, for letting go, for relinquishing, for releasing, for preparing to begin anew.

Eliminating everything unnecessary from her life will give her more quietness, space, peace and solitude for integrating this powerful flow of inner transformation and this unfamiliar new dance of change. She now needs calm and centred awareness for receptively tuning in to the erratic communication of her body’s strange and unsettling symptoms. Her regular sleeping patterns are frequently disrupted as intense physical sensations call her home to that vast space of the immortal female essence. She is completing the circle of the physical Mother and she is entering the circle of Mother of Earth, of Mother of All, of Grandmother Wisdom, of Grandmother Peace.

This transforming process is often felt as a turbulent roller coaster ride that will eventually bring the spacious freedom of calm serenity and grace-filled maturity. The modern world of instant fixes, instant sex, instant shopping, instant food and instant gratification thinks that menopause suddenly begins and ends when a woman experiences her last menstruation. For this “fast fix” world is not aligned with the inherent sensitivity of the female psyche and the natural flow of female transformation.

The menopausal womb is relentless in its desire to release the past, as it brings residual tensions and long-buried emotions to the light for healing. Many women experience the dissolution of suppressed cellular memories and the healing imagery of graphic vivid dreams as past trauma is released during this phase. These suppressed memories are often deeply sexual, intensely sensual, painfully raw and intimately real. And as they dissolve, they create a vast new space in her psyche for enhanced creativity, vibrant passion and deeper loving. The impersonal wisdom of the Crone does not wish to journey with the past. Her purpose now is to purge and purify, to cleanse and renew, to strengthen and empower, releasing all that will not serve the harmonious containment of her new life. Emotional disharmony frequently erupts as the menopausal woman prepares for her new phase of peaceful detachment and deepening wisdom.

She may experience hormonal disturbances, lack of interest in lovemaking, disruptive separation from people and places and situations that once fulfilled her and filled her life with joy. She may find that she is no longer attracted to particular foods, flavours, clothing, activities or work that once enlivened her and gave her a sense of security and comfort. This powerful phase of female life is for releasing cluttered possessions, unreal dreams and impossible ideals. It is for relinquishing past behavioural patterns, disempowering lovers and dysfunctional relationships that are not aligned with the wise ways of the Crone. As the powerful weaver of wisdom, she cannot integrate these into her rich tapestry of new beginnings, her colourful fabric of life, if she denies her female truth.
