Working with Womb and Hara to Awaken Feminine Consciousness
I find it fitting to share this again now as we move into the old traditional sacred union of Winter and Summer who dance and weave a balance together to create the re-birth of life with Spring (read more about the Gaelic May Day festival of Beltane, "the mouth of fire", here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beltane)
A lot of healing work - and spiritual knowledge - is experiential, requiring first hand sensory input to really understand and integrate the teachings. There is so much to learn and know even after years of learning and practice. What I share here is my personal translation of some of the womb awakening understanding I have gleaned during my journey studying, practicing and teaching womb awakening during the last approximately 6 years, as my teachers Dr. Azra Bertrand and Seren Bertrand have taught and written about it.
Journeying Shamanically to Retrieve Wisdom from Within: A Guided Meditation Video
Lately, I have been journeying with control and trust. Control is insidiously present in my family life, I realized when I stopped to take a closer look. About 10 years ago I made a conscious choice to open my heart. As I began to work with this opening, I saw more clearly how much of my inner operations were controlled by an inner Judge. This law enforcer had opinions about everything and everyone. I was not so much surprised as I was ready to acknowledge this aspect of how I interacted with myself and the world. A decade later, after years of therapy and training and apprenticing, shedding layers of armor and masks, here I am again looking at yet another even deeper layer of how much I cling to control of the world around me and the places where I still do not trust. Two different things and yet related. When I let go of Control, can I Trust that I will be okay, or that my kids will be okay, or that a situation -whatever it is- will be okay? Am I ready to open my heart more fully, to take freedom to another level and let go of control, that oppressive influence deeply embedded and embodied within me?
Which brings me to this Full Moon offering. There are so many tools and ways to unravel threads interwoven into our being that do not truly serve freedom or life. I have found myself being drawn back to sitting in meditation more often, to breathe and create spaces of consciousness to become more aware of sovereign choice and observation of all that is at play in this moment that is not of this moment. Breathing into this body and noticing where there is flow and where there is holding. I will talk more about meditation next month - well, that is part of my scheduled plan. As we know, Spirit may have other plans, as She has this month. What I am offering this moon cycle is yet another way to come into the presence of our awareness, to breathe into our body-being and listen deeply, to Trust the wisdom within this miraculous vessel.
Working with The Luminous Blueprint, a Process of Manifestation as Spiritual Work
The Luminous Blueprint is something I originally envisioned sharing with you later this month. As it turns out, Spirit directed me to share it with you now to take advantage of yet another potent portal for seed-planting a new cycle of beginnings. This particular technique-tool was developed and shared by Julie Winter. I received this gift from her as a student of The Helix Training Program she founded over a decade ago. In this short video, I share a general overview of this process, giving you all need to start bringing your visions forth from the luminous realm into this material plane of existence, for the good of all.
Healing the Shadow Wounds of Western Civilization Which Perpetuate Wounding Upon All Life-Beings
Our American Culture is one of myriad gifts and blessings - traditions that have come from around the world with beliefs, Gods, Goddesses, practices and rituals that nurture, sustain and keep us connected to the Earth and the family system and the collective community. These valuable threads weave us together in rhythmic cycles of gathering in celebration and sorrow.
Clearing During Dark Moon to Open to Love and Joyful Seed Planting at New Moon
Sharing my recent spiral around death and rebirth, of grieving and feeling, and moving through these uncomfortable places within. The purpose of this kind of felt exploration is to be able connect with care and be present to experience, to feel the love and joy in relationships with children, partners, friends and community.
The purpose of the work we do is to help allow the natural process of resolution and integration of experience to continually flow into wholeness and pathways of sustainable joyful liberation.

“The womb is not a place to store fear and pain.
The womb is to create and give birth to life.”
