In the same way that all humans follow a 24-hour Circadian Rhythm (meaning, about a day), we women follow an approximate 28-day body clock, which I’ve coined a Circamene Rhythm (sur-kay-mena, meaning, about a month). We are lunar rhythmic beings and that’s a game changer and crucial detail to understand for our health, wellbeing, and happiness.
This is womb wisdom: a well-rounded way of thinking, communicating, and bonding. As the human sources of creation, there is very little that is more important than getting this right within the psyches and souls of every woman on the planet whether she ever produces children or not. Within us lives the rhythm of “Source creation” and every human has incubated in it and has been baptized into this world from it.
The 4 Seasons in 4 Weeks understanding of womb wisdom is an easy interpretation to follow and becomes more and more accurate as one aligns more fully with her own patterns.
Here’s how it works:
When the cycle is broken down into 4 weeks, a pattern emerges. Like pretty much every rhythm in the universe, you’ll find a resting, building, expressing, and deconstructing phase. It’s a monthly rhythmic form of Sacred Geometry.
In the same way that the moonlight waxes and wanes, we change slightly every day as we build and deconstruct our uterine linings and all other aspects that support a possible pregnancy. If not cycling, this waxing and waning of energy is a support system our bodies know very well and continues to practice beyond menopause or hysterectomy if we don’t abandon it.
This building and deconstructing is not an act of being crazy and we’re not changing our minds! We’re staying on top of the ebb and flow of our rhythmic world and our thought processes. Our choices are to either learn to surf the waves with grace and ease, or drown in the chaos and confusion.
One of the major bonuses is grasping that you have a rhythmic sex drive. There are a rhyme and reason as to why you like to be touched a certain way one day, but not enjoy (at all) that same type of touch another. The sequence of your cycle causes your uterus to be building or deconstructing, and this effects how your body is responding to stimuli. It’s important to learn and it easy to understand because the pattern repeats itself. It is super predictable.
While each woman’s monthly rhythm is unique to the number of days and the daily stresses and circumstances that effect it, the reproductive sequence is basically the same for all women. It’s a formula for making a baby, which means certain things have to happen: hormones get triggered following the actions of the hormones before them. It’s a pattern that gets repeated over and over again every 28 days or so and if all goes well, this is something you’ll have the chance to get good at for over 40 years of your life minus pregnancy, nursing, or major health challenge.
The 4 Seasons in 4 Weeks approach to the hormones is a daily practice, not an overnight “did it and done” experience. Like taking care of our teeth or washing our hair, taking care of our reproductive (and beyond) bodies is something to incorporate into your daily routine. Knowing what cycle day you’re on will tell you which phase you’re in. When you know this, it’s easier to prepare for it and bring in “tools”, such as music or fitness, for balance and comfort.
Women’s history tells us that we lost our female secrets for taking care of ourselves a long time ago. It’s time to remedy this now by following the teachings of our feminine lineage, learning how to manage our lunar-rhythmic bodies with grace and skill. You’ll get better and better at knowing how to prepare for each phase and which tools to bring in for balance.
Lunar-rhythmic mastery is your true initiation into womanhood and strong personal power.
This is the place where we feel “at One” with our cycles, a calm and powerful centeredness that gives us clarity, direction, confidence, and know-how. When in alignment and “at One” with that natural rhythm, we feel Bliss.
The time in history has opened up for us to reject and release the harmful past understandings of our cycles and selves and replace them with the powerful feminine truth. Our world desperately needs women to bring this medicine and these gifts to the planet right now.
All will benefit. – Suz
