Honoring Your Menstrual Cycle

Menstrual cycles are something that I have studied a lot because I have had difficulty with mine since I was 12 years old!

I have had extreme pain with my periods (endometriosis), Infertility issues, and I lost my gallbladder.

Our Menstrual cycles are connected with our Sacral Chakra. This is chakra governs our emotions, creation, connection, and joy!

A block in this chakra may appear as one of the following symptoms to name a few:
~ Arthritis
~ Acting out sexually (overly sexulaized)
~ Infertility
~ Problems with your menstrual cycle such as PCOS and Endometriosis
~ Spleen, Kidney, Gallbladder, and Intestinal Issues
~ Difficulty managing your emotions, either overly emotional or repressing your emotions
~ Lower back pain

Looking at this list, which of these sounds familiar to you?

If you’re like most women, you’ll recognize many of these symptoms within yourself.  For me, several of these have manifested themselves in my life, including infertility, endometriosis, gallbladder issues and emotional repression.  What about you?  How many of these symptoms have you experienced in the past or are presently struggling with?

A dysfunction within your Sacral Chakra can be caused by a traumatic experience during your childhood such as sexual abuse, neglect, and a situation causing you to suppress your emotions. When we don’t feel safe to feel an express our feelings and emotions then they get stuffed down, but trust me they are still there.Our emotions are with us until they are felt and expressed.

Since our Sacral Chakra governs our emotions, it is important to feel and express your emotions, but not to stay stuck in an emotions. It’s all about finding the balance that works for you.

I am happy to report that even though I struggled with fertility issues, after several IVF Treatments and radical self care, I have 3 children!

I also want to mention that the 1st New Moon of the New Year Year is today!

Jan. 17th, 2018
The new moon is all about setting your intentions.

Since this New Moon is in hard-working, yet practical Capricorn, it is an ideal time to set your  intentions around goals at work.Think long term and short term.

I suggest making a list of 3 long term goals you have for yourself, then in a separate list, write short term goals to help you reach your long term goals.

With it being the first month of the New Year and the first New Moon, it is an ideal time set your intentions and think about where you want to be in a year from now.
