First woman story
First Woman was washing clothes and blankets by the river when Moon Mother appeared. First Woman had a pile of blankets that the First Animals had asked her to wash as well. She was tired, but happy.
Moon Mother greeted First Woman.
“I’ve been watching you” she said, “and your Womb Bowl is low in energy.”
First Woman looked at her Womb bowl lying in her lower belly, and she noticed with surprise that it was glowing only faintly.
Moon Mother said then: I have a gift for you” , and she placed her hands on First woman’s head.
A beautiful ray of moonlight flowed from Moon Mother’s hands down through First Woman’s head, down through her heart and into her Womb Bowl. As her bowl filled, it began to radiate once more with soft white moonlight.
First Woman sighed.
“Thank you, Moon Mother” she said.
“My gift is always there for you whenever you need it” smiled Moon Mother.
A few days later, after helping the Wolf Clan with their boisterous cubs, First Woman looked at her Womb Bowl and saw that it was low in moonlight once again.
“Fill it with my moonlight” she heard Moon Mother’s voice whisper. So First Woman sat down on a mat and placed her hands over her Womb Bowl. She felt the earth beneath her and her connection to Moon Mother above her, and beautiful moonlight streamed from her hands and filled her Womb Bowl.
It was a busy week and First Woman felt that she was having to fight many challenges.
“Fill your heart with my love” she heard Moon Mother’s voice whisper inside her.
And First Woman placed her hands over her breast, and beautiful moonlight streamed from her hands and filled her heart.
That night, as she curled up under her blankets, First Woman’s mind was full of worry. She couldn’t sleep. Once again she heard Moon Mother’s whisper.
“Place your hands over your forehead, and fill with my peace.”
First Woman placed her hands on her brow and moonlight radiated from them, filling her head with gentle light.
And then she fell asleep.
