Holding Your Partner Through Moon Cycles

Supporting, seeing and holding our women during a sacred time of their lives that symbolises so much wisdom and depth is critical. This is a great time of reflection and process, where we get to celebrate life creation and be present to this.

Our part is to hold, to witness, to ask what is needed and how it is needed. A time to revere, respect and trust. To be ourselves and to show up fuller and take the essence of this love into all other times also. This can be deep teaching of us as men.

Signifying wisdom, intuition, birth, death, reincarnation, and a deeper spiritual connection to the cosmos. Moon cycles are similar to the cycle of a seed: the seed grows into a flower, then blooms and then dies. This is part of a process. Not shaming, minimizing or forgetting the value of this process is imperative.

Normalizing this journey defines (in part) not only our healthy masculinity but also our profound connection to life, nature and our intertwined futures. By being supportive during a time where some women are in deep reflection, some are in pain, some are not, some differ in the “accustomed to” expression and some not; we are choosing to be unwavering and stable, irrespective of what is unraveling before us.

It is this choice and habitual action to be vertical and present that contributes to the quality of our masculinity. It also demonstrates reliance and selfless love. We often push away what we don’t understand and as men, we struggle to connect to the way a woman’s body functions. Welcoming the unknown into our lives by offering our presence diffuses this confusion.

In ancient cultures, the period cycle was deeply respected and revered and as men when we embrace this reciprocal contribution to life, we all grow together. Learning to love a woman’s body during menstruation is about realizing that the feminine is a beautiful cyclical being. This is one of the most charming and magnetic things about being female. The body, mind and emotions are constantly ebbing and flowing in this cosmic dance that we as men get to witness.

The invitation is to celebrate this time of a woman’s life and embrace this cycle of life.

One is glad to be of service.

The Harsh Inner Critic

Lately, I have found myself comparing myself to others (particularly men in my space) that I perceive to hold the attributes I don’t yet have within myself. This has placed me in a little bit of a tailspin. There are times where I will be empowered and inspired and do more and concentrate on the authenticity of my expression and…

There are times where I revert and get stuck, feel the victim that I put so much effort in and “where am I still, what does he have that I don’t?” I criticize, become frustrated, agitated, short with others, despondent and not motivated to create. I feel jealousy and unworthy in this comparison mode.

Masculine Sexual Intelligence

There is a deep intelligence that exists around conscious sexuality, especially for men. We have been so deeply disconnected from meaningful and authentic sexual connection for too long and the reality is: we do not know what we do not know.

We think and believe sexuality should be a particular way based on the fallacy of rampant and mainstream pornography and polarised and unrealistic views of romance and sexuality that we are exposed to but the truth is we are deeply disconnected from relating consciously in our sexuality and own sexual expression.

Own All Of You

I have not always been confident in who I am, in my body, mind and heart. I have doubted, felt deeply intense fear and lost my self in negative and harmful actions towards myself and others. I have not been connected to my body and have carried shame in this area, alongside my thoughts and emotions.

Why Unconditional Love Does Not Exist

“Unconditional love can only exist once we have moved through the motions of conditional love. Then and only then may we reach a heightened and enlightened state of being that liberates us from dualistic conditions”…

The Greatness Within

We are all intrinsically ‘good’. We are all born with ‘heart’. There is no conceivable way we are born to destroy. Destruction, death, ‘the perceived end’ is not a construct directed by us, but rather something organic that occurs as a natural extension of our existence. This enables us to be connected in a powerful way.
