What is blood's relationship with water?
We can always be thinking of blood as synonymous with water. The waters of the world reflect the way we treat and connect to our own water element also known as blood.
Throughout human mythology, water beings like the siren and the mermaid serve as reflectors showing how humans who come in contact with them are connected with the deeply soulful water element.
What of the nature of blood and DNA?
This blood is divinity, a sign of immortality, the divine processes of our Earthly vessel. A wise woman once said, "Give me a drop of your blood and I can tell you the history of millennia".
It is the plasma that connects us all, within us it all looks the same and carries the codes from thousands of years. Blood is the soul’s diary and it tells your story. It is the missing link that holds together the web of life.
Historics of War and the Moon Time
In order for warring tribes to invade and conquer, first, the womb (or birthing place) had to be invaded and conquered. The sisters, mothers, daughters and granddaughters had to be usurped in order to control because this damaged the whole of the nation.
When conquering took place, the space where women bled was the first attacked, this disrupted the entire flow of the society.
How Can Men Reclaim the Connection with the Moon Time?
Our sons can be reared up in a way that they feel honored to stand by their sisters, not only in partnerships but in kinship. We are always co-creating and when women can feel safe and supported by all men: male friends, brothers, flat mates, fathers, cousins and kin we are moving into a more perfect Earth.
When men tune in with our patterning, they can heal their own relationship with the moon time, because healing happens in all directions.
