Spirituality of Menopause

For many months, I have been studying Menopause. Today was the day to finish the poem, a culmination of my learnings and reflections. Menopause is such a beautiful, empowering, freeing time for women. I have been enjoying and savoring it immensely. Whether you are in Menopause, Manopause, or another transition, I hope you find meaning in the poem.

Spirituality of Menopause
Spirituality of Menopause

Disrobe from young identities.
Melt away debris –
regrets, longing, fear, should.
Deepen past surface beauty
to the elemental, core, presence.
Beyond the greedy appetites,
regrets, fiery passions,
bigger, better, more,
reaching, clambering.
Beyond living on crumbs.

After seven hebdomades
enter menopause
The noble passage
Reclaimed virginity
Insight, foresight
Mensymoon to new
when I will face
and embrace my shadow,
when I will wear purple.

Vulnerability a door to
courage, confidence,
expanded consciousness.
The white light fills me.
Grandmother archetype
Universal psyche
Doubt falls away.
Vasomotor dilation
that hot flushing
of ego strings –
anger, pettiness, righteousness.
Contractions to birth of self
legitimate, radiant, humble.

Karmic control of my fate.
Design a harmonious life
Goddess within
never separate.
The winter rose.
Rest in the arms
of the great mother,
there, unclouded visions come.

Pass into Crone and creativity
Luxuriate in enoughism.
Slow and small of broad days,
of relished memories.
Gathered wisdom
Elder Wand
Acute intuition
Reflection, contentment
Moving into the years of time.
Run slows to walk to stand
eyes upward
