I am currently diving deep into the topic of periods thanks to the great book Wild Power Discover the Magic of Your Menstrual Cycle and Awaken the Feminine Path to Power by Alexandra Pope.
When my daughter got her periods, the most important piece of advice I gave her was: follow the seasons of your body.
Our divine feminine body follows four seasons. The book Wild Power explains this concept in a very interesting way.
Thus, during our periods, the body is experiencing a kind of winter phase. It is supposed to be resting in a warm and quiet place.
Then our body experiences a phase similar to spring during the 14 days leading to ovulation, which means summer time. This is when we are full of creative juices and energy.
Lastly, fall precedes winter when our body slows its rhythm before menstruation.
The beautiful magic of the feminine cycle is also beautifully explained in the great book The empowered woman by Kate Magic.
Kate Magic explains why women are not adapted to a linear rhythm but to a cyclical one.
Lastly, diet is again so important in our life that food choices can also be adapted to the seasons of our body. Check out the website Flo Living and the book Woman code by Alisa Vitti for more information about this fantastic idea.
