The womb is a place of alchemy. Within her void like chamber, holds the capacity to trans-mutate energy, the current of life force from one form to another.
As the interface of elemental and cosmic rhythms, the womb offers a gateway through which one can travel through and to the other-world. Undergoing a process of transfiguration we journey to the cavern of creation,- with breath and imagination we can transform anything to gold. This is a path to empowerment, a deep remembrance of something ancient within us, which many of us are being called to awaken.
So as the wheel of the year enters High Summer, we come together as a hive to celebrate the ancient Feast Day of Lammas, landing under the light of the Full Moon to dream with our Wombs and the Earth. This potent time of year contains within it the fullness and fulfillment of the present harvest, and containing within it the seed of all future harvests.
This is the Union of the Earth and Sun, seeing what of the dreams we planted in spring have beckon ripe to harvest, and what visions we lay down to become nutrients for the next cycle. Remembering ourselves as part of the cycles of the Earth, we allow ourselves to come into a state of surrender, knowing as one dream is laid to rest another will emerge. Continuing along this spiral path, we flow continuously through the ever-changing seasons, as seen on Earth and within our own bodies.
This is the process of shedding skins, continually allowing ourselves to grow, transform and die again. As witness in the waxing and waning in the Moon, we also see in our own Wombs the transmutation of matter into one form to the other, such as through the shedding of menstrual blood and the birthing of our creations.
So you are invited to return once again to the virtual temple, to bring the luminous light onto your weave and see what golden threads want to emerge from the depths of your being.
Continuing along the spiral path, we come to a turning point in the wheel of the year, meeting in the liminal space, the place between one season and the next. Transitioning from Summer to Autumn, we enter the waning part of the year, whilst the Moon is waxing into her fullness.
Liminal, coming from the latin “limen”, meaning threshold, refers to the moment in which we are caught between two different existential planes. From this liminal space, we will journey along the Womb as the World Tree, allowing it to become our axis mundi as we step through this gateway into the otherworld.
The World Tree represents the meeting point of the Earth and Sky, embodying the union of these two opposites in form. Its branches, reaching up into the higher realms, the stars and Upperworld. The roots submerged in the Earth, descending into the Underworld.
In this process we will work with the Womb as the place between worlds, the place we climb when we go on a journey, and is also our way home, leading us back into wholeness.
