Conscious MenstruationJun 20, 2021
People have been taught to ignore / objectify / pathologize / feel guilty and ashamed about Menstruation. The confusion can be debilitating, frustrating, and even painful. We change throughout the month but are expected to live the same way day in and day out. Being consciously aware of the menstruation cycle and phases has the potential to truly set you up for a different kind of life.
We have natural inherent abilities and gifts that come during menstruation and all other phases of the cycle. It is a deepening time, and if we learn to reorient ourselves to the possibilities, we can make a powerful shift in our lives and how we experience menstruation. Severe menstrual challenges are a signal of a body in need. Physiological, emotional, mental, hormonal, and many other levels can be a signal of this need.
The body talks, are you ready to listen?
When a system is aligned, vital, and vibrant, menstruation can be a time of centeredness, potency, and deepening vision. We don't want to shame ourselves if we're not in that place, but we do want to know there might be something else available.
In many cultures and indigenous societies, people would gather around to listen to the dreams of menstruating women. Instead of being confused, in pain, and misunderstood, dreams of women are shared, respected, and heard. Unfortunately, in modern-day societies, sharing vivid dreams while on your period isn’t exactly popular.
The buried truth is there are many gifts that come during this time. Ask yourself - How much do you know about your cycle? What burning questions do you have about it? Do you have questions about what's happening in your body? Do you feel it is a burden? Do you feel connected to your cycle? Do you want to foster a connection that truly makes a difference in your life for the better?
Intimacy with oneself in these ways can take time to cultivate. Can you imagine if your menstrual time was a time of release and shedding with a bit more ease?
