Cycles of the Womb Pt1: New Life is Born with the Spring Maiden

4 seasons in 4 weeks – 4 part series

159

After our menstruation has finished, every cycle we are born again anew.

Our Womb has shed the uterine lining, allowing that which we no longer need to die and return to the earth. Now our body is gearing up to start a new life cycle- with the wisdom integrated from the last. This miraculous flow of life and death repeats over and over until we reach menopause or become pregnant.

The maiden is just like the sunrise. She is fresh and light and bursting with energy. She is like a bud shooting up from the soil, seeking light, seeking nourishment. She’s hungry, her aim is to grow as much as possible. She can be playful, childlike even, bushy tailed with flowers in her hair. There is an innocence about her.
I find when I am in my maiden phase I’ll chose to wear more playful colours like pink and yellow. I have much more physical energy, and often feel like I could achieve anything at this time. I’ll start igniting new projects and meeting new people. I’m out there in the world, networking, communicating, and most importantly having fun! This is a time of dynamic fiery action. The Spring time energy is invigorating, the bees and birds singing loudly in celebration of the new dawn.

Ways to make your maiden shine…

  • Exercise lots; dynamic vinyasa yoga, dance, swimming.
  • Go on hikes in nature, climb in an upward direction!
  • Eat lots of nourishing foods, high in protein. Green juices. Eat often.
  • Drink plenty of water, treat yourself as you would a new plant.
  • Get lots of sunshine.
  • Be very silly. Be playful with your friends. Make up games like when you were young. Invite your inner child out to play.
  • Wear playful colours; pink, yellow, pastels.
  • Art is therapy for the maiden. Lots of colouring in!
  • Do handstands, kartwheels, piggy backs.
  • Go adventuring, anywhere, everywhere.
  • Take a “life is fresh potential” approach.
  • Walk bare foot, connect her to the earth to keep those ideas grounded.
  • Get out there in the world, meet new people, try new things.
  • Start a new project, connect with others with the same vision.
  • Be her best friend, hold her hand and love her.

I remember once when a friend of mine came over to my house, he had visited a few days prior, and I had been bleeding, I had been wearing my pyjamas and eating chocolate. This time when he came to visit I was wearing a pink top, tutu and had glitter all over my face. He smiled and said, “Gosh, it’s like seeing a different person!”

A perfect example of the cycles of the Womb.
Always changing. Always flowing.
Round and round we go…

Join me next time where I will be diving into the nourishing indulgence that is the Phase of the Mother.
