Harnessing the Power of Your Menstrual Cycle for Confident Choices: Unleash Your Inner Decision-Make

Are you caught in the endless loop of decision-making, spinning your wheels and feeling overwhelmed? Do you find yourself losing sleep, consumed by the fear of making the “right” choice? If this sounds all too familiar, you’re not alone.

While I excel in my business decisions, even I falter when faced with a tantalizing menu at a restaurant. The love for food can be both a blessing and a curse, leaving me paralyzed with choices. And it’s not just trivial matters like dining options; significant life decisions, like selecting the perfect school for my son, have also left me feeling lost in a sea of possibilities.

We encounter decisions every day, ranging from minor choices to life-altering ones that hold the power to overwhelm us entirely. But what if I told you there’s a way to alleviate that burdensome weight on your shoulders and make decisions with newfound ease? Enter the realm of your menstrual cycle and the remarkable influence of hormones.

Harnessing the Power of Your Menstrual Cycle: Tune In to Your Body’s Rhythms

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to decision-making because we are beautifully diverse beings. However, the key lies in understanding the natural rhythms of your body through your menstrual cycle and being aware of where you stand before embarking on any decision-making journey.

Recognize those moments when you feel less than optimal during specific phases of your cycle. Acknowledge that it may not be the opportune time to make critical choices. Moreover, be cautious about making decisions around ovulation, as they may need to be followed through during the luteal phase when premenstrual symptoms arise.

Discover the Seasons Within Your Cycle: Navigating the Path to Clarity

Within your menstrual cycle, distinct seasons emerge, each carrying its own essence and guiding you in decision-making.

Winter (menstruation, your time to bleed): Embrace reflection

Dive deep into introspection through meditation, journaling, or immersing yourself in nature. Stepping away from the noise of social media can work wonders, allowing the pieces of your puzzle to effortlessly fall into place.

Spring (pre-ovulation): Embrace experimentation

Follow your intuition and act upon what feels good. It’s a season of testing, where you can embrace new possibilities and make decisions from a place of authenticity.

Summer (ovulatory phase): Embrace boldness

Harness the daring spirit that accompanies this phase. Seize the moment to make courageous decisions and take transformative steps that propel you forward.

Autumn (post-ovulation): Embrace evaluation

Slow down and assess what serves you and what doesn’t. While decision-making during this phase can be easier for some, it can also be overwhelming. Find the balance that aligns with your unique journey.

Fuel Your Body, Empower Your Decisions: Nourish for Clarity

The fuel you provide your body directly impacts your decision-making abilities. Skip the sugar and caffeine rollercoaster, and make a commitment to regular, balanced meals. Protein-packed nourishment empowers decisions rooted in gut instincts, allowing your true self to guide the way, free from the constraints of the mind and ego.

Reflections at 39: 15 Profound Lessons from a Decade of Growth

Reflections at 39: 15 Profound Lessons from a Decade of Growth

Yesterday marked my 39th birthday, a milestone that compelled me to pause and reflect on the wisdom I’ve gained over the past 10 years. Life’s experiences have a way of shaping us, the saying “what doesn’t break us only makes us stronger” definitely rings true, imparting valuable lessons that propel us forward on our journey. In this blog post, I want to share with you 15 profound lessons I’ve learned, hoping that they resonate with you and inspire your own reflections on personal growth:

1 – Stand in Your Truth and Embrace Integrity:
Amidst life’s chaos, remember the significance of remaining true to yourself and holding onto your integrity. It serves as an anchor during turbulent times and empowers you to navigate the challenges with resilience and authenticity.

2 – Self-Care is Essential:
As a mother, prioritising self-care may seem selfish at times, but it is a vital aspect of maintaining your overall well-being. By nurturing yourself, you ensure that you can show up fully for the ones you love the most.

3 – Embrace the Present Moment:
In a world teeming with distractions, it’s crucial to put down our phones and embrace the beauty of the present moment. Cherish each experience, for life passes by swiftly, and if we blink, we may miss its fleeting wonders.

4 – Embrace Failure as a Learning Opportunity:
Failure is an inevitable part of life’s journey, but it is through these setbacks that we gain valuable insights and grow stronger. Embrace failures as learning opportunities, recognising that they pave the way for eventual success.

5 – Cherish Family Above All:
Family holds a sacred place in our lives. Nurture and cherish those relationships, for they provide us with unconditional love, support, and a sense of belonging.

6 – Express Love Freely:
Never underestimate the power of affectionate words and gestures. Shower your children with love, kisses, and heartfelt expressions of adoration. These moments create lasting bonds and strengthen family connections.

7 – Prioritise Intimacy in Relationships:
Intimacy, both emotional and physical, is a vital component of a thriving relationship. Cultivate a deep connection with your partner, as it forms the foundation for enduring love and understanding.

8 – Embrace Discomfort for Personal Growth:
Stepping outside your comfort zone is where growth resides. Embrace discomfort, challenge your limits, and embark on new experiences. It is through these moments of growth that you discover your true potential.

9 – Progress Over Perfection:
Perfectionism can hinder progress and stifle creativity. Embrace the mantra of “done is better than perfect” and take action. It’s in the pursuit of completion that we learn, improve, and make a tangible impact.

10 – Motherhood’s Challenges and Fulfilment:
Motherhood is an incredible journey, filled with challenges and immeasurable rewards. Embrace its ups and downs, for it is one of the most fulfilling roles we undertake in this lifetime.

11 – Trust Your Intuition:
Your intuition is a guiding force, an inner compass that knows what’s right for you. Learn to trust it implicitly, as it will lead you in the right direction with remarkable accuracy.

12 – Take Control of Your Thoughts and Feelings:
Life presents us with various circumstances, but we have complete control over our thoughts and emotions. Reject the role of a victim, rise above challenges, and keep moving forward with resilience and determination.

13 – Relationships and Lessons:
People enter our lives for a reason, and sometimes they also leave. Even when friendships dissolve, remember that no relationship is wasted. Each connection teaches us valuable lessons, contributing to our personal growth and understanding.

14 – Believe in Yourself:
You are your greatest ally and advocate. Bet on yourself and your abilities, for if you don’t, how can you expect others to do the same? Embrace your unique qualities, talents, and dreams, and pursue them with unwavering belief.

15 – Free Yourself from the Fear of Judgment: The fear of what others might think can be a stifling prison that holds us back from true self-expression. Break free from this fear, embrace your inner rebel, and become a trailblazer and leader in your own right.

A Full Moon Manifestation Ritual: Opening Up to Universal Possibilities and a Life of Flow

A Full Moon Manifestation Ritual: Opening Up to Universal Possibilities and a Life of Flow

Today I’m delving deeper into my spiritual side and sharing what I do when there is a full moon and/or when I am ovulating, because my cycle mostly is in sync with the 29 day cycle of the moon.

The full moon is a great time to connect with yourself, clear any unwanted energy, as well as open your heart and mind to what is possible. I love the natural rhythms of the moon and my own menstrual cycle. It gives me a chance to reconnect with myself and tap into my inner wisdom. I find doing this helps me to manage my anxiety and to live a life more in flow.

To mark this shift not only in the lunar cycle, but my own menstrual cycle phase of ovulation (typically cycle days 14-20), I will be setting my intentions and making my wishes for the next 29 days.

Here is what I do…⠀

☾ Light a candle, ground myself (take 3 deep breathes) and focusing purely on being present. Letting go of the thoughts that plague my mind (which can be overwhelming at times).

☾ Next I’ll take a few moments to think about what I want to let go of and what I want to receive.

☾ Grab a piece of paper (or your journal) and note down all the things you would like to show up in your life over the next month – let’s call these your full moon wishes.

☾ Thank you Universe and say an affirmation. Here are some great examples of affirmations for surrender and trust.

☾ Place your piece of paper (or journal) somewhere you will see it daily, like your bedside table. Take time each evening before you go to sleep, take a look at your list and reflect.

That’s it, short simple, sweet but a nice little ritual to do nonetheless. Now sit back and watch the magic happen.

I’d love to hear your full moon and ovulation rituals, share them below by leaving a comment or connect with me on Instagram and share it with me in the DMs.
