🔴 YOUR SACRED BLOOD 🔴

This could be a controversial post for some. I had a lot of resistance posting it but it has to be seen and heard ✨

.

Few months ago, I was on my period, bleeding. Aaron took some of my blood and put it on my forehead. I was a bit shocked to be honest, never done anything like that before. I froze a while, then started crying. It was bit of sadness, bit of feeling like coming home, bit of joy from connecting to myself all combined.
.
I just started to use moon cup/diva cup. This is an alternative to tampon/pads, collecting your blood in a cup you insert into your vagina. While using this, there's no waste to environment, not harmful as tampons for your vagina (tampons are actually bleached), you save money, can use this for years and it allows you to connect to your own blood, your body.
.
Yesterday was the first day of my period. This time, I took blood from my diva cup, went up to my mirror, looked into my eyes for a bit then put my blood on my face. It's really hard to describe in words how I felt. Very empowering, powerful, there's something ancient, sacred about it. Then did the same on Aaron's face.
.
I'm sharing this because it was a profound experience for me, connecting to my body and my body's wisdom. It feels like connecting to the wisdom of many women before me and will come after me. It taps you into something bigger than you and its powerful. Once you pass the initial stage of, 'Eww, blood, its gross' which I had as well, this is actually a beautiful body fluid that creates life, same as semen. They are both incredibly sacred fluids which created you 💫
.
And seeing it on someone you deeply love is incredible. Seeing it being honoured and respected.. I'll ever be grateful for Aaron's non judgemental approach for this that's not in the 'norm' for many people 💙 Thank you beautiful man 🙏🏼
