Menarche

A young girl’s passage into womanhood which was traditionally her first honouring. And known as menarche Ceremony in ancient cultures. Our daughters are welcomed into a wonderous and magical circle of women of all kinds of ages. It is a forgotten birth rite that is being brought back and it is known as entering the Feminine Wisdom of Women. This is a celebration in an intimate setting where our young women are being gifted with these feminine teachings that empowers and imparts our daughters with a sense of value and worth. She is celebrated for her gift of being able to create life, her unique talents and gifts that she will share with the world, anchoring our daughter’s deep feminine quality with honour and pride. This first welcoming into womanhood is a memory that they will then bring with them for the rest of their life.  

Menarche

 

In the ancient cultures they were welcomes into a circle or women who mentored them. Can you imagine yourself as being truly honoured? When you first flowed that your mother would wash your feet and hair gently and lovingly placing blessings into each strand? You feel pride as you enter the sacred circle and are welcomed as a woman who can bring forth life and who is essential for the community for her gifts and talents?

Our daughters would experience for the first time, the power of true loving and supportive sisterhood, greeted by loving and supportive women who do a cyclic practice of looking at their hurt so that they can grow and learn. Can you imagine the impact on our daughters as they can lean on sisters instead of doing it alone in the world with teen magazines, mop culture that denigrates women and tell our daughters that a woman’s only power is through their sex appeal?

This teen time period is where our daughter not only individuate from us, but also taste the darker fruits of life and face their first real hurts and this happens a lot without the support of others.

When they begin to flow, they are automatically initiates into the life-death-life cycle…they are going to experine that every month where they undergo and inner death or psychological and emotional ‘death’ every month. Therefore when we consciously acknowledge this, they don’t push away thioer feelings and undermine themselves as “being just emotional” and then turn to smoking or drinking to not feel, or stuffing doen their feelings by over eating or witching numbing incessant tv. It is up to us to lead them by being the example on how to process our feelings through the feminine cyclic practice of self honouring instead of self-depreciating, undermining or negating, entering a circle of women, like a red tent or moonlodge, also tells them that power lies in the wisdom that they gain and it shows them how important feminine wisdom as a guide.

They will begin to experience the awakening of their subtle awareness and sensibilities. They were all open as children as the veil between the material world and the inner world of spirit was thin… and then was lost due to the use of a more left-brain logical way and rational of thought during school. 

However, once she starts her flow, she is also in touch with her inner intuitive  and psychic gifts that she can learn to hone  order to use for advice or inner guidance. She can learn to practice these gifts, to unplug, to listen deeply to their inner guidance and truth. Every time thy flow is a time for them to practice their power, and there fore they practice their authenticity and being able to stand on their own 2 feet. I have already started looking at oracle cards with my daughter a young age…and she enjoys being able to look into one and feel what it is is has to tell her…My step son does too 😉

Furthermore, this rites of passage recognises the loss of the girl and the loss of innocence…and teach them that ir is ok and they can release and let go. Moreover, it also it encourages them to hear us recognise their unique qualities, like their openness or art or quick wit and how their talents are essential to make a change in the world. It empowers them to hear us speak and make notice of their values and potential and that we honour their internal world as sacred. Also is asks of them to become response-able, the ability as Tanishka my teacher made me aware of. This form of self examination is a powerful tool to teach them as they learn to take responsibility for their choices, actions and therefore the creation of their life and a difference in the world.
