Ahhhem the world doesn’t revolve around you, you know?
Ever heard this? Well next time you can respond by saying “actually I think you’ll find it does”.
You see as women we are connected to the ebbs and flows of life, the cycles, the moon phases, the tides and the seasons. We are a reflection of mother nature regardless of our age or the stage of life we find ourselves in. When we reconnect with our bodies and understand that as cyclical beings, we follow natures patterns over a 28-day cycle (or thereabouts) we find life is more balanced, time is no longer the enemy and we can maximise our energy by following her lead.
In fact, there was a was time when as women the world really did revolve around us. Our ability to create, birth and nurture another human being was revered by those in our community. Our ability to heal, our intuitive senses and deep knowing, connection to the source and ability through our menstrual cycle to process and release the collective energy of our families and our communities was seen as a central part of their survival. We were the gatekeepers of all things sacred. The direct connection between the earth and the gods.
But over time this reverence has been replaced with shame. Our deep inner knowing, our intuitive ability and our powers to heal being demonised. With the rise of the patriarchy and formal religion, rather than being celebrated our ancestors where persecuted and burnt at the stake. They had to supress their natural powers to survive and in doing so lost themselves and their connection to their bodies and their source. This collective shame has been passed down and now instead of using our magic to navigate life for ourselves, our families and our communities we stifle them with endless to do lists, lose them in the busyness of life and supress them with modern medications.
Imagine what the world would be like if we reclaimed ourselves. If we reconnected to our bodies and lived in sync with them rather than the expectations of the modern world. Imagine if we could find the magic that lives inside of each us and reconnect to our source and gain the courage and confidence to be ourselves, speak our truth and stand up for what we believe in.
Well, the good news is we can. All of that knowledge and wisdom still resides in each of us. Check out my latest publication Doing You - A Season by Season Glimpse into Your Own Cyclical Roadmap. Not only does it provide a snapshot of what a typical cycle feels like for a woman, but it also provides 3 simple activities you can start today to tap into the magic that lives in you.

PS. You don’t need to be menstruating or have an actual womb to live in flow. If you're in menopause, had a hysterectomy or identify as women you have an energetic womb space and so you can follow the moon phases and track your own ebbs and flows to uncover the patterns that exist in you.
