WHAT IS SACRED FEMININE?
“Sacred Feminine is about connecting with your womb, your inner wisdom and empowering yourself as a Woman.
It’s about respecting your Sacred Blood and using it in your ceremonies.
It’s about staying silent and listening to the creativity latent in your 2nd chakra.
It’s connecting with the Natural energies of the Moon, the Sun, the Earth, the elements and inviting them into your life.
It’s about dancing in the sacredness of our bodies, closing our eyes and letting our soul flow with the music.
Sacred Feminine is about remembering that you are a Female and so, able to give birth naturally, in a homely environment and free of drugs.
It’s learning about the grieving process of an abortion, and being abused in so many ways.
It’s about respecting yourself as a Human Being and making yourself feel respected as a Woman.
Sacred Feminine is about sharing, dancing, laughing, crying, nurturing…It’s about Being Yourself, Authentic, without masks and fulfilling your Life Path on this Planet, which includes protecting Mother Nature, the people on Planet Earth and Wildlife.”
