The strawberry full moon will show her face tonight! For some that means the start of menstruation and for others that means standing by as this 7 day experience takes over. During this time, you may find yourself swept up by everyday life or doubled over in pain.
Hell you could be doing both.
Sometimes you may forget and not make any room for you to deal with what’s happening here which is…detoxing; a cleanse. I don’t mean just physical either. You can detox mentally, emotionally, and spiritually too. It can be very helpful for you and your body if you set some time aside to be one with all the parts that make up…you.
Not only are you not mindfully aware of what you are in need of but maybe your partner is too. A lot of our male counterparts are unaware how to help because they are so disconnected from the experience. When you join each other to become one in a sense, I believe your experiences should be your own as well as shared with the other.
This is includes your menstrual cycle.
I was tweeting about this the other day and decided to bookmark it to further elaborate on it via a blog post.
I knew this would be a good topic to create a meditation that you could practice with or without your partner. I am really excited to see if this could possibly blur that line between men and women by educating men to erase the false perception of what’s happening for women. This could be a good way to connect on an intimate and energetic level bringing you closer by innerstanding one another deeply.
Blood Moon Cycle Meditation
Create A Space |
Set aside a block of time with your partner (preferably the first day or night). Find a space that you find comfortable to your body, mind, heart, and spirit. Silence all the interruptions and play music that you connect with your emoceans as well as your body.
Set An Intention |
Enter this space with this statement…
“In this space we are two but we share as one. I am love and I am loved. You are love and you are loved. I am opening my heart to you and your emoceans. I can let the waves wash over me and feel them to the depths. I am not moved by fear but by deeply innerstanding.”
Intuitively choose food that your body is asking for. I also recommend choosing red and orange fruits and veggies as they help bring healing to the Root and Sacral Chakras.
There are many ways that you can meditate or be mindful and sitting still is just one of them.
During this time focus on your body, mind, and heart. As the words and emoceanss come up share that with your partner. Let it flow and as you go deeper, use this time to converse how these thoughts and emoceans make you both feel.
Try to connect to where these feelings might be coming from externally and why it triggers you internally. As long as you listen to what your emoceans are saying it should be easy for you to express how you feel without it flooding the room and drowning your partner. If you have a hard time with this (which is okay) recite your intention again (you can purchase the meditation card in the shop to refer back to).
If you feel compelled to touch the location of where your partner is feeling these emoceans, do so. Send loving energy to the area and say whatever comes up.
The best way you can track growth is by journaling. Keep a journal that you both share for this day specifically to take note of what happened. Make sure you write down the things that stood out to you the most.
End this session with a hug or cuddle. Take some time to rest because emoceans can be draining. Continue listening to music, talking, and eating.
I hope that you found this meditation to be healing and eye opening. I hope that your partner is able to grasp a deeper sense of what you are going through and feel safe expressing themselves. Remember to be open to vulnerability and be grateful for the rawness in these moments.
Let me know how this meditation went for you and your partner. I would love to hear your experience.
