Our bodies are sacred human vehicles. They communicate with us in a myriad of ways. One way that is often judged, misunderstood and disregarded is known as pre-menstrual syndrome; powerful messages from our female bodies just before we bleed.
In many cultures it is believed that the power of a woman is at its peak when she’s bleeding. Today, if women weren’t spending so many hours indoors and under fluorescent lighting, her body would realign to the cycles of the moon and she would bleed with the new moon. In shamanic and nomadic cultures women would gather in a moon lodge or red tent during their bleeding cycle and during that time would receive mystical dreams and guidance that would be returned to the tribe and received with the highest degree of reverence.
When a woman bleeds she is in an incredible, powerful and open space. She is considered to be in between worlds and it is also a time of physical cleansing as she sheds her uterine tissues. Unfortunately, in todays world we are expected to rise above our natural timings and rhythms in order to excel and push through with a ‘never let em see us sweat’ mindset. We’ve become disconnected from a time where it was beautiful and revered to be vulnerable with our sacred blood cycle.
I constantly teach about the profound opportunity that lies within a symptom. So today, I want to invite you to look in a new way and consider these pings, pangs and symptoms as a clever calling from your body desiring to be heard. Consider that any Pre-Menstrual Symptoms are your bodies way of requesting protection, to feel acknowledged and to make the most of this sensitive time. Its an invitation to attune yourself back into a space of love and connection.
