We tend to associate blood with injury or illness, and yet menstrual blood is quite the opposite – it’s the very blood that nourished our life in the womb of our mother.
The blood that is shed when we menstruate is the lining of the uterus that could have nourished a new life.
I believe the way a woman relates to her menstrual blood is a reflection of how she relates to her primordial feminine power.
The health of our blood also indicates the health of our body overall.
Bleeding time is a natural time of detoxification – if we didn’t get pregnant, we are shedding the lining of the uterus that is no longer needed for that purpose, and at the same time we detoxify our entire system – which is part of the blessing of bleeding.
If we notice the texture, colour or fragrance is “off”, it is likely pointing to something being out of balance (healthy blood is free flowing, fragrant, bright red and without clots)
As we purify the womb space and our bodies, physically and energetically, the menstrual blood is a powerful elixir that personally I consecrate by placing on a chalice on my altar with my prayers and intentions before offering back to the earth.
At times I have offered my blood at power places across the planet to merge my essence with the strong energy of those places that resonate with my soul.
Today I’m on day one of my bleed which always inspire me to delve into the blood mysteries. 🥀
I share more about this in a podcast interview as part of the Rose Series with Kirsty Targrass ❤️
How do you relate to your menstrual blood, or if you don’t bleed, how to relate to the blood of those wombyn close to you?
