Nurturing The Rite

Once you have received the Rite of the Womb you nurture its power with the following practices.

1.- If you still have your menses then on your next cycle you find an intimate space and time to give some of your menstrual blood to the Earth. You can bleed directly on the Earth or you can collect some of your blood on a small container and pour it on the Earth while repeating the following words:

I release my fear so I may embrace freedom
I release my pain so I may embrace joy
I release my anger so I may embrace compassion
I release my sadness so I may embrace peace

And you can add any other words that ring true for you.

2.- If you are in your years of plenitude –after menopause- then you’ll do a ritual on the next dark moon. You create an intimate space to offer red wine to the earth while repeating the words:

I release my fear so I may embrace freedom
I release my pain so I may embrace joy
I release my anger so I may embrace compassion
I release my sadness so I may embrace peace

And you can add any other words that ring true for you.

You do this at least once and up to thirteen moons to fully empower your womb.

3.- If a girl before menarche –first menstrual blood- receives the rite and she wants to do a ritual, then she offers flowers to the full moon. This is because her womb is still blossoming and has not yet release her first flower. She can also repeat the words:

I release my fear so I may embrace freedom
I release my pain so I may embrace joy

She is guided to say only the first two sentences so she does not become overwhelmed and then she is guided to say anything else that rings true for her.

4.- Share the rite of the womb with the women of your community. Every time you transmit the rite you strengthen its power in your womb.
