sacredness of our moon cycle

To all my ladies out there //

What if I told you our PERIODS are something to be worshipped, not hated?

What if instead of it being something we dread, it be something we HONOR?

Recently I’ve dove into a whole new relationship with my MOON cycle (Period, menstrual cycle, whatever floats your boat:) Growing up, I remember I wanted my period so badly I would steal my mom’s tampons and sneak them to school, hoping my anticipation would speed things up.

And once I finally did, boy was I ecstatic.

Though it wasn’t long before the excitement ended, and I hated it.

And looking back now I only did so bc that was the “cool” thing to do.

But why?

Why are we taught that something so precious as our welcoming into womanhood, is nothing more than a hassle, gross, and painful?

Why do we shame women for our bodies natural occurrences that all life would cease to exist without!?

Yeah, I get it’s blood, and that’s not everyone’s “forte”. But this blood is what gives us life, and it is the blood that would birth new life if conception occurred.

This blood so many fear and hate is SACRED.

Our womb is SACRED - our very gate into this world !! How can we condemn something that precious?

I actually look forward to my period now bc I know how truly sacred and powerful this precious time is.
