In Episode #17 on The Jen Mavros Show, we are joined by Hay House author, menstrual maven, plus-size yoga teacher + spiritual guide-ess, the amazing Lisa Lister.
WOW my friends, this episode was so eye-opening and expansive for me as Lisa and I unpack the delicacies of what it REALLY means to bleed and menstruate.
Lisa lovingly reframes how our menstruation cycle is meant to slow us down, to give us space to come into our bodies and pay attention because our womb is our oracle, it is where deep feminine wisdom is held.
"When you see the blood as a purification as opposed to something dirty and shameful, which is what we've been taught, it's a purification each and every month, it's an ego death. It's an opportunity for our ego to die and be reborn every single month which means we unfold so beautifully. We get to unfold and unravel another layer of ourselves, of our knowledge, of our self-knowledge, of our body-knowledge each month."
As if this wasn't juicy enough, she shares about her latest work of art, her book, Witch.
Personally, the word and meaning of witch holds such a "taboo, scary and a little creepy" overlay of energy. You see in the movies the women who chant and gather in circle to curse and create spells to hurt people. Lisa was raised into a gypsy lifestyle and therefore calls herself a witch, but with her gentle explanation, I was able to REALLY encapsulate the truest and most beautiful meaning of the word. And in her definition, I am a witch too. Wait, wha? The word still is a bit off-putting to me, but with her help, I was able to open to seeing this gorgeous perspective.
Crowned ‘the defender of female awesomeness’, Lisa is such a vibrant and loving soul really embracing these controversial topics with reverence and love to help shed light on them. She is here to stand and help women all around the world reclaim their SHE power and WITCH-ness.
