Menopause is a passage into the autumn of our life. It prepares us to take a look at our harvest, separate the wheat from the chaff, and distill the wisdom from our journey. Kris Galli • fine art After taking time to go inward and do this it is time to come back out as a wise woman and plant the seeds of our wisdom for the next generation. This is quite a different scenario than we have witnessed in our culture for the last few generations.

Women have just gotten old after a difficult menopausal passage and discarded by our society. Their usefulness has been hidden by our lack of awareness of the value of this phase of her life. With so many women going through this sacred passage now we can not afford to have a vast amount of women just getting old. We can not afford to not honor and welcome our wise women into society to support the collective transformation we are going through.

Nourishing ourselves according to the Earth’s wisdom, the embodiment of the fully integrated feminine, balanced with her masculine, with no apologies about her oozing infinite creative sexual energy, and wise enough to recycle, is the first step in shifting our self rejection as women and open to our wisdom.

Many women naturally experience a rising of kundalini energy as they approach menopause. Their energy is shifting from being projected outward to attract procreation to inward and movement upward through the chakra system. Some experience this as hot flashes as the energy hits up against blocks. This energy is available to clear out and balance the blockages through the entire chakra system that does not represent the fully authentic, integrated powerful feminine.

It is a powerful serpentine energy that is the master of transformation. It prepares us to take our place with the wisdom that comes from the depths of our soul’s journey. It prepares us to be so grounded in it that we are unshakable. We are no longer under the influence of society’s conditioning. We have the strength to tell it like it is as we pass the baton to the next generation laced with deeply earned wisdom.

Honoring ourselves, shifting the self rejection, nourishing ourselves according to the wisdom reflected from nature and making friends with our sexual energy is important preparation for this sacred passage.

When we are not grounded and unable to nourish ourselves appropriately the kundalini rising through our bodies can become a dangerous vehicle that carries us to realms we are not prepared for. It can shred and dismember us in such an unmerciful way we can’t integrate it. Opening to this energy in a way that supports the balancing of the chakra system and prepares us for our role as wise women without getting blown out of the water is a tricky dance.

Nourishing ourselves according to nature’s wisdom grounds us on this wave of transformation season by season at a manageable voltage. We become acquainted with ourselves, transforming cycle by cycle. We are experienced riders by the time menopause arrives.

We are able to utilize this serpentine energy as it rises up our spine. We can then integrate this transformation, embody it and take our place as the elder with a baton that is worth passing on. There may have never been a time in history that is calling for this more than now. We can do this.

. We will support each other, not as a victim, but as a warrior that has been given this sacred trust to heal, nourish and honor ourselves as we courageously, gently, and consciously learn to navigate this journey and contribute to this most powerful transformation in humankind. We only have to do our personal piece of the whole to affect the whole. When we realize the only thing wrong with us, are the old beliefs, that something is wrong with us, we will know her, AND ourselves.

Divine Nourishment:
A Woman's Sacred Journey with Food

by Mary Lane

Divine Nourishment is a book designed to acquaint you with the rhythm and flow of the Earth’s wisdom through our relationship with nourishment. We witness the self similarity of our own human journey with nature as life flows through the seasons of birth, life, death and rebirth. We open to the wisdom and feminine energy within ourselves that is desperately needed to support balance and harmony in our world.

For generaddtions, the lack of understanding and acceptance of feminine wisdom has created self-rejection for women in societies across the world. The deep, collective wounding of the Divine Feminine has buried this wisdom in the shadowy depths of our souls. Reconnecting with nature is a valuable step toward healing.

In this book you can embrace the essential, energetic qualities reflected in nature and in your own physical, emotional and spiritual health. You will see how the seasons flow throughout the yearly cycle supporting life, death and transformation with no beginning and no end.

You’ll receive practical information to apply in your daily life that is nourishing and appropriate for alignment with the journey; healthy, organic seasonal foods, humanely raised and naturally grown, along with recipes, potions, tonics, practices and cleanses.
