I remember as a young girl being terrified of "womanhood". The day I got my period I cried. I fought with my Mom to not buy a bra. I was taught that sex and sexuality were very shameful outside of marriage (and once you were in marriage... well that was a big mystery never discussed). I felt that becoming a woman meant saying goodbye to childhood, and embracing the sexual side of me was wrong and disgusting. (Ok, that's so sad to type out. But fear not, I do get better!)
Now as an adult with a daughter of my own, I am determined to change the way our girls view menstruation and sexuality. These parts of ourselves must be viewed in a positive, healthy, and even playful light. (The other day my three year old daughter said to me, "I can't wait to get my period!", so hopefully we're already on the right track!) I'm not saying I'm "healed" of my past completely, but I desire to dedicate myself to always evolving and becoming the best version of the woman that I am.
I designed the Sacred Feminine Drop to celebrate what makes us women (and absolutely you don't have to bleed or have a vagina to consider yourself a woman!). We are sacred, peaceful, powerful, compassionate and loving, the creators of life. I bow to you, my sister. May we always reconnect with each other via the divine sacred feminine energy that unites us all.
A portion of proceeds from the Sacred Feminine Drop are being donated to The Cup. The Cup provides reusable menstrual cups to underprivileged girls worldwide, empowering them to stay in school and live with dignity.
