Kundalini Power and Nettles

Remember that the turmoil and strife and heat stirred up in menopause are likely connected to your kundalini power.

One nourishing herb, according to Susun Weed, to help balance the drying effects of kundalini's heat, is Stinging Nettle.

"Stinging nettle infusion replaces the nutrients and proteins that Kundalini uses up. By strengthening the adrenals and kidneys, and increasing stamina, nettle helps us surf the waves and ski the slopes of our hot flashes.Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) is a wonderful ally for the woman who is awakened by night sweats, whose hair is falling out or becoming brittle, whose energy is flagging (or gone!), whose vagina is dry, who wants to avoid adult-onset diabetes, for the woman who wants to increase her metabolic rate, improve the flexibility of her blood vessels, strengthen her immune system, and find ease for sore joints."

Reply from Belly (see letter on musemother link)

Dear Jenn,
You were born with me, and you came into the world after living nine months in a female belly. Little jenn used to dance me around in stretchy pants, roll tumble wrestle and play. Then you got broken into and stopped trusting the world or the signals I gave, inside and outside violations. No one to count on, or show you how to trust your belly/body. So you cut yourself off at the neck.

Stopped hearing me down in the nether regions. I had to speak volumes with limited vocabulary and images. Symptoms - gas, cramps, aches, pain, now you listen better.

I love that you will listen now, but slowing down to be with me is what I need more of, not words and promises. I like it when we breathe together. I can help you regain trust in the world and in yourself. Stay close to my wisdom, the center of breath is with me, and my peace will be your peace.

There are two doorways to protect me - upper and lower bonda. Respect me, my boundaries are your boundaries. Rely on this inner connection. Stop. Feel. Proceed. Check in with me.

I speak volumes without words.
