the first 2-3 days of our menstrual bleeding is sacred. it is a passageway into a new cycle. i honor it as such by creating a so called moon cave, also referred to as a womb cave or red tent.
when we bleed, we are releasing all the impressions, energies, emotions, we have lived throughout the past month, even longer. the release is not only on a physical level that which is our womb lining.
during our moon, we might feel calmer than usual. easier to fall into a meditative state. we are more naturally inclined to go inwards and shut out the world around us.
we embody the new moon within us when we bleed. as the crone woman archetype. the wise woman.
as we sit in reflection during our moon, we might feel drawn to spending more time at home, which is completely natural. just like when we birth, even animals, seek a dark cozy spot, such as we seek the darkness.
creating a moon cave for yourself can be an act of love and respect for your body. when i mean create a moon cave, you don't need anything fancy, an actual tent or space.
all you need is your loving intention. let yourself be led by your intuition - what would you like to have during these 1-3 days while spending time at your home?
create your moon cave by:
☾ purchasing nourishing foods for your body during these days
☾ having inspiring books by your side
☾ playing music that makes you feel all the feels
☾ saying no to any social activities that you don't feel called to join
☾ not picking up the phone and being available 24/7
☾ signing off from social media for those days and focus on you
☾ journal and explore your inner world
☾ do whatever nourishes your soul
☾ take mineralizing baths to help with the detoxification process
☾ buy red roses to honor your red days
☾ do a rose meditation and look at in awe at her beauty which mirrors yours
☾ coming together with girlfriends who are bleeding and talk, be, pull oracle cards
