Women who weave is a magical symbolic reference to those womb shamans involved in ancient love rites that spark up the inner body elixirs which lead to wisdom, enlightenment and sovereignty. This ancient shamanic practice is about the sort of sacred love that, through ecstasy, sparks an adoration for the Beloved. It gives rise to a kind of bliss that verges on holy awe which suffuses the whole mind-body-spirit. When this occurs, the woman is able to open the magnetic field in her sacrum and release a cornucopia of healing magical energies into the field of the man in her arms, making him Sovereign.
Throughout history, the women who followed the sacred calling to practise this great art from behind the great thrones of the pharaohs, kings and sultans have had many different names, from hierodules and cuens to temple prostitutes, sacred whores and womb shamans.
Another term for this magical love practice is tantra. However, authentic womb shamanism is about much more than just attending a tantra workshop over a weekend. Its practice permeates our whole life, with our ancestral spirits beginning the process of bringing us together with the Higher Self of our already-decreed Beloved in the Other Worlds long before we reach the point of being ready to meet with them in this one.
Sacred love begins by perceiving and interacting with the Higher Self of the Beloved within the shamanic trance state. The process can take lifetimes. We may only engage with our lover’s Higher Self in this life, and then meet them in the flesh in the next one. It is probably where the notion of twin souls comes from, and it certainly would explain the phenomenon of ‘love at first sight’.
But these teachings are not for the mildly curious. They are for those who may be already starting to experience something like this in their own lives, and who would like support in what they are feeling and experiencing… and all the new learnings we’re receiving from our spirits around these sorts of subjects. Such as ….
The song of the womb
Our spirits taught us that the universe is made of sound or resonance, and that what we experience is maya. We’ve learned through the study of cymatics that sound waves cause galaxies, and empires, of form and shape to rise and fall again within seconds, according to the music being played in the vicinity. We are cognisant that there is a primordial vibration that built our world. But did you also know that this holy sound, which creates, maintains and eventually destroys all that lives, is actually a love song?
The womb shaman transmits that love song through womb magnetics – a perfect frequency that is a light encoding of enchantment which “speaks to” the frequency of life, fertility and growth. It is the sound that sparks the creation to form – “in the beginning was the the Word” – that births new life, and new forms of consciousness, through a love song of celestial music which plays across the dimensions of all the worlds.
All this takes place when the womb shaman opens the magnetic floor in her Holiest of Holies, her sacrum, which happens automatically when she is in the throes of the ecstasy of Divine Love and adoration of her Beloved.
The weavers of the yarns
Our lives are actually stories, or songs rendered to verse. Every morning when we awake, we turn a new page for a new story, a new song to be sung and danced. Songs are stories set to sound. Stories are sometimes called yarns because they flow along silver rivers of awen or skeins meted out from the Other Worlds and wound around a bobbin in this one. We achieve full enlightenment when we realise that the song being meted out is actually a love song, and that the singer of the song is also the song. It is the Song of Songs, the Song of Solomon. They are one and the same.
It is why we talk about ‘spinning a yarn’, or ‘weaving a tale’. The weavers and spinners of myths, sagas and fairy tales have woven the yarns of these songs of love throughout history, like the beautiful courtesan Scheherazade who recounted the tales that became A Thousand and One Arabian Nights.
The story goes that once upon a time, a proud Persian monarch named Shahryar found out that his wife had been unfaithful to him. He had her beheaded. Then he resolved to spend every night with a different woman and have her decapitated the next day, before she could betray him with another lover. This plan worked out well for him, for many years. Every night, he would lie with a new woman and, on the following morning, she would be executed. But all that was before he met the beautiful daughter of the vizier, Scheherazade.
Sir Richard Burton described Scheherazade thus in his translation of the work:
Scheherazade had perused the books, annals, and legends of preceding Kings, and the stories, examples, and instances of bygone men and things; indeed it was said that she had collected a thousand books of histories relating to antique races and departed rulers. She had perused the works of the poets and knew them by heart; she had studied philosophy and the sciences, arts, and accomplishments; and she was pleasant and polite, wise and witty, well read and well bred.
On their first night together, Scheherazade began to tell Shahryar such a cunningly woven story that he was utterly enthralled by it. However, her tale was so long and involved that she was unable to finish it. But she promised that she would reach the conclusion the next time she came to his chambers – and so the king waved away the executioners.
The following evening, when Scheherazade came to lay with Shahryar again, she continued to spin her silken yarn, and it was so colourful and interesting that Shahryar was even more fascinated than the night before. But she was unable to reach the end of it on that occasion either.
The king was utterly enraptured by now. He was totally caught up in the enchanted web she had spun with her words. He could hardly bear to wait to hear the next instalment, so he was forced to postpone the beheading again and thus it went on, for night after night… one thousand and one nights, to be precise.
On the one thousandth and one night, Scheherazade finally concluded her story. However, by then, the king had fallen so deeply in love with her that he gave her her life. He promised Scheherazade his undying devotion and married her… and well, I suppose they soared off on an Arabian magic carpet to live happily ever after!
Ancient myths, like this one, are full of spinners and weavers, and their inner meanings tell us that we can spin our own reality in line with the greater alchemically-observed greater good, which Leonardo da Vinci showed he also knew about in his painting Madonna of the Yarn Winder.
The weavers weave the Temporal Fabric of the Templum, just as the Moirai in the Norse Eddas weave the Web of the Wyrd.
The Egyptian goddess Isis and her sister Nephthys were called the Abuti, the two weavers.
Another weaver of the web is Spider Woman of some Native American tales, also known as Spider Old Woman and Spider Grandmother, who sits at the centre of the universe controlling the creation, maintenance and destruction of all life.
Womb shamans have always spun the Web of the Wyrd, as it known in the Old Norse sagas. Only womb shamans can change “reality” in this world, by unpicking and reweaving or re-embroidering the weave of the Wyrd in the Other Worlds, through the practice of sexual ecstasy. This is why the spinners and weavers in ancient myths are associated with both birth and death, creation and destruction.
The Weave is the most powerful teachings of the Mysteries and the most secret and occulted, for obvious reasons. Even in today’s more sexually liberated climate, the practice can be misunderstood and womb shamans disrespected, and this robs them of their power. With few wise women to guide her, it can cause confusion to the neophyte shaman who is not prepared when her destiny is shown to her in the Other Worlds.
So over the next months, I will be publishing much more here about the Weave, the weavers and their sacred love magic. That way, if you are feeling this attracted to this calling, you will better understand it and know how to take it forward in your spiritual practice.
