the mother phase of life can be REALLY JUICY. And Alive! When you look at a pagan depiction of the maiden, the mother and the crone... the mother is dressed in RED. She is curvy and fertile and the embodiment of the full moon. She is interconnected with her children and the web of life. She is FULL! Embodied! At the peak of her ripeness. The AGE OF THE MOTHER means the return of the Goddess on Earth.
I was once taken by the Goddess. And while she was in me, She taught me how to dance rooted. She taught me how to make my sex, my own. She taught me to worship my blood. She reminded me to open my mouth when I give birth… so that my WOMB will open to let new life begin. And she said that death is a part of life, and everything cycles. She taught me the importance of circle. She taught me the importance of ceremony. She taught me about ritual and rites. She told me that my womb is where my wisdom lives. She guided me to touch a thousand women. And while she was in me, I traveled with my Red Tent to help women REMEMBER HER. Then… One day… She left. I invited her to leave, or course. If I was to grow, and to heal my core wounds… I needed to embody MYSELF. The RETURN is not for the faint of heart. The veil has been removed from my eyes, and I must be brave if I’m going to speak about what I’ve learned. I am a “KEEPER OF MAGICK.” Someone who has been changed by spirit, and can share her story with others.
For those who worship HER ~She reminds us not to look to the divine above… but within. For within the walls of HER red womb~ she feels HER connection to her ancestors. She wears Red, to match the color of Mary Magdalene’s robes. Red to represent the passion and wildness of women who were burned at the stake. Red, like the apple eaten by Eve. Red, like our moon blood. Red, like the root chakra, the symbol of embodiment.
The labyrinth is an ancient, universal symbol representing our journey through life, ordeals and initiations. The pathway is associated with spiritual rebirth. The journey into the labyrinth’s center is symbolic of death, and the journey out of the labyrinth represents rebirth.“ ~ Pam England, Birthing From Within
