    Thank you Talulah for sharing your being wounded and for accepting this as part of yourself. I can so much relate to when you mention you want to run away and start again. It feels very deep and it is encouraging that you interrupt your pattern and start talking to get a ‘reality check’. I can hear your being hurt and I can hear yourself taking responsibility for yourself. Blessings and Love, Barbara

    so beautiful and wise dear Talulah. Really make sense of what seems like non-sense at times, particularly trauma. And i am wondering if part of the non-sense of these experiences is that in our dominant culture, illness, trauma, death is all part of the undervalued descent phase and is therefore never good, or wise or necessary…and therefore so difficult to trust. Ah i just got this!!! So thank you dear one! Sarah

  • Reply JessicaLaborDoula July 17, 2015 at 3:24 pm

    I so very much AGREE! I’ve had two c-sections, even though my second I was planning on a VBAC, things changed and well, plans changed. I don’t regret it, but it truly helped me be the person that I am. Maybe because I choose to embrace my experiences. Having said that, it’s lead me in to this beautiful career choice, doula/LPN (practical nurse in Canada). Great blog!

    • Reply makingsacred July 19, 2015 at 8:43 am

    Thanks Talulah, I loved reading this blog post. Something very close to my heart, as you know. Reclaiming my menstruation was the catalyst that healed my symptoms (signs) of endometriosis. Premenstrual ‘signs’ ‘symbols’ so important to shift our perspective & reclaim these words from ‘syndrome’. As you have said before ‘words are spells’
    Our cyclical nature is not an illness. A question that arise in me often; “As a cyclical being, how do I best navigate through this current model of the patriarchy, that only values the ‘marching on the straight line’ ?”. I don’t have the answers, but I do feel there is wisdom in ‘the flow’ so to speak. I try to move like my blood, like water. And I’m hopeful when I hear about actions being taken, such as menstrual leave for working women.
    It is a constant negotiation for me, every menstrual cycle with my boys, to let them know that I will not be ‘on’ & available. Sometimes, I feel it is more about getting out of my own way! & letting go of the guilt around not playing the role of the ‘all giving Mother’ & always serving others. Creating that ‘red tent’ sacred space, physically in my bedroom, is an outward reminder to my boys & also myself to respect & honour my time of bleeding. It is not big grand gestures, just simple things like lighting a red candle & wrapping myself up in my favourite red shawl. Enough of a signpost or compass point if you like, that keeps me oriented on this inward time for me. A time to close my door & also signs that let my family know it’s time for me to rest & vision. I always find this greatly diminishes any signs of PMS. Only if I allow myself to get ‘pulled’ out of this space, by outward demands do I find the signs of PMS return, my body always reminding me to return to the important yin space of creative visioning. I am always so much happier for it, when I allow myself to surrender to my blood wisdom. I find when I honour this space of rest, I come out of my bleeding renewed & find the following month moves with so much greater ease & direction. ♥️ Xo

    Thankyou Talulah, I myself have been experiencing many of the emotions & feelings you have shared this year. In my 43rd year around the sun, found it really helpful to be reminded of the 7yr cycle according to Steiner philosophy & that I am moving towards Menopause/ Peri-menopause. I have questioned so much about what is my purpose, what am I really here to share & how I can really make a difference with my time on Earth & then experiencing feelings of ‘does it even matter anyway!’. Reassuring to read of your experience & the resources you have found helpful to navigate this time. Thanks for sharing from your heart, feels comforting for this reminder that I’m not alone & this is a rite of passage journey I’m on that all women have & will journey in their lifetime. Time to pull out my ‘wheel of the year’ notes & do some revision to feel into where I’m at. Feel like I have gained more of an anchor point from your sharing that will support me in my journey.
    love, Fern xoxo

    Talulah, I just finished watching Elements of Alchemy! What a gorgeous piece of short film. I will never tire of watching you dance and I especially love when you dance with the land and the elements. You and Bibi and Evan should be very proud of this work! I am so happy that I got the opportunity to see it!
