We can look at challenging menstrual symptoms through three different lenses: physical, emotional and spiritual.
What's going on physically? This is about self care particularly in terms of diet and detoxification. There is so much toxicity in the environment, add in nutrient depletion and fatigue and you may have your answer.
Or could it be something on the emotional level - your personal history, the life challenges that you have had, or trauma.
Spiritually we are all at our most intuitive in the premenstrual phase and during menstruation - is there something you are not attending to in your life? What triggers you and what keeps recurring?
The lesson here is about reframing any suffering as clues to something more.
Another aspect to consider is how harsh is your inner critic when you are premenstrual? This is the voice inside that tells you that everything is shit, mostly you. Does it pull you under?
I help put this bully back in its place by teaching women the foundations of menstruality and cyclical living. Working with me, they learn how to use their cycle as a diagnostic tool and take away practical skills to calm their wild premenstrual moods.
I have seen clients transform their experience of this difficult week in just 1 month of working together. They access their inner power and it changes everything.
