Today is Day 4 of my cycle. Meaning that I have been in the dreamworld, the vision space, the Red Tent for the last few days. Experiencing my first bleed of the year and feeling an intense and heavy flow of blood still flowing strongly on it's fourth day.
As I sit with a cup of tea and thing about what such a heavy bleed might signify I bring my attention to how the last few cycles have been. Busy. Distracted. Getting ready for holidays, travel, apprenticing. Almost forgetting that I am bleeding because busyness has been taking over. So if I think about my pledge to myself about focusing on self care the heavy bleed is perfect. It is making me stop, hands on womb and breathe.
I find myself doing deep yogic bleeding as I walk to a meeting, of being conscious of the drops falling as I work with a client. This heavy bleed is bringing me back into myself and reminding me to slow down, to take care, take time and be present in what is happening.
My first blood of 2015 is letting go of any feelings of overwhelm and worry. I am committing to a calmer headspace this year.
My first blood of 2015 has been nurturing the potted plants on the deck. Lime and blueberry, being nourished by my blood, as they nourish me.
My first blood of 2015 has been painted on my third eye, awakening vision and clarity.
Have you bled this year? How will you use your blood? Each month we grow and release an amazing substance of life and magick. Connecting in with our cycle and our blood has the potential to be life changing. We have the ability to let go of what no longer serves us each month as our blood begin to flow. Open, and ready to grow again, we can set the intention for what we want to grow in this cycle. We have the ability to change and release our patterns, our old ways of being and be reborn, each cycle, each blood.
My intention is to remember this power in every drop.
