It has taken me a while to understand that our bodies are sacred, mystical, and amazing for so many reasons, and that we often forget to appreciate the cyclical beings that we are.
Since I’ve come to appreciate this in myself, I can see it in other women and understand that the body, mind, and our very essence fluctuates with Nature’s cycles, such as the moon, tides, and seasons. We are organic, one with the Universe and all of creation.
I also have come to know that if we understand that flow in nature then we can understand it in ourselves and accept it as part of our feminine makeup, which then means we can understand ourselves better.
For women, being cyclical beings is especially sacred because our menstrual cycles are in synch with the moon’s phases, the oceans’ tides, and each of the seasons. Our bodies, mind, moods, emotions, and spiritual connections all rise and fall, ebb and flow, with Nature’s changes. Nature is our ultimate partner in the dance of life.
This means the women we are today is not exactly the same women we were yesterday or that we will be tomorrow, or the day after that, and so on. Every day, there is a change—be it subtle or more pronounced—in our mood, emotions, and physical presence.
These fluctuations and changes that occur with seasonal and lunar changes are all natural, a sacred interaction between Nature and Feminine energy. Women who become aware of these relationships and who are ready, willing, and able to embrace them wholeheartedly can enjoy the sense of inner peace and safety they can bring.
The challenge so many of us women face is not to accept our bodies, but to connect completely with our Feminine energy and power. We need to recognize that our bodies, feelings, emotions, and spirituality are a living, breathing core of who we are as women and sacred feminine beings. When you make this realization, you will have reclaimed your feminine self and connected with your spiritual core, which are your birthright.
Women who claim their feminine self and learn to appreciate the incredible strength and intuition it embodies have an ability to move in harmony with the seasons and the moon's cycles.
