Do you feel burnt out, stretched to the max or overwhelmed with all you have to do?
Maybe you feel disconnected from your inner knowing?
Or out of control & at the mercy of your hormones?
As a Women’s Health specialist I’ve spent thousands of hours listening to women and it’s taught me so much. The one thing I’ve learnt is that underneath the surface stuff, deep inside, all women struggle with the same issues. You may think it’s just you but it’s not. Women share the same insecurities and anxieties, the same self doubt and body shame, the same sense of being not enough or too much, and the same challenges unique to having a female body: hormonal issues, emotional ups and downs, menstrual cycle irregularities, pregnancy changes, birth fear, postpartum struggles, breastfeeding problems, fertility heartache or going through menopause.
What I’ve come to understand is there’s a common reason WHY modern women struggle with these things we struggle with.
It’s because culturally we’ve been taught to hide so much of what it means to be a woman.
On some level we’ve internalised a belief that female physiology and psychology is some kind of weakness, something to be ashamed of or even afraid of, rather then growing up in a culture that teaches us to celebrate this as part of our gifts and strengths.
For one thing, we’ve been taught to live life at one speed (full throttle!) and to ignore the cyclical wisdom of our body. Not only does this disconnect us from our uniquely women’s wisdom, it means we’re constantly blocked or exhausted from denying the natural flow of our own energy. And whilst this is easily the number one cause of Women’s Health issues, this goes mostly unrecognised by mainstream medicine.
So, for the most of part we don’t know this is going on! The cyclical, regenerative natural wisdom of the Feminine Principle has been missing from our culture for such a long time we’ve all but forgotten there’s something we’re not seeing here.
According to ancient wisdom this vital substance is YIN.
