The Rhythm of Our Ancestors

Triple Goddess by Amy Haderer

“All the eggs a woman will ever carry form in her ovaries while she is a four-month-old fetus in the womb of her mother. This means our cellular life as an egg begins in the womb of our grandmother. Each of us spent five months in our grandmother’s womb, and she in turn formed in the womb of her grandmother. We vibrate to the rhythm of our mother’s blood before she herself is born, and this pulse is the thread of blood that runs all the way back through the grandmothers to the first mother.”

~Layne Redmond, When the Drummers were Women


We form floating in the rhythms of our mothers and grandmothers… What a mysterious, magical journey is this life!
