As women, cyclical living is a way to connect with our authentic selves.
I’ve been on a journey of embracing my feminine energy this past year.
This comes as a result of me feeling burnout and overwhelmed and struggling with chronic pain. I’m learning it all came because I was pushing too much from my masculine energy.
So, I was basically living from the head up. I think a lot of us do this. The world is set up that masculine energy is the driver, there’s a lot of focus on achieving, there’s a lot of focus on achievement.
And yes, we need our masculine energy. But we also need the feminine, we need the yin and the yang, we need that balance, we need that union of energies.
One of the ways that I’ve awakened my feminine energy, and embodying it, is through cyclical living. This simply means following my menstrual cycle, and the yearly cycle to guide some of my actions and decisions.
I’m a typical type-A personality, always pushing, always driving. As a highly sensitive person, I often overthink things and spend a lot of time deeply processing information. I’m an empath, feeling and taking on a lot of emotions of other people.
So I had to come to a point where I needed to slow myself down, where I needed to be able to draw strong boundaries, and where I could actually come back to myself.
Living in alignment with my cycle and following the natural rhythms of my body has been one of the ways in which I have healed my relationship with myself.
In this video, I explain what cyclical living is and how I’ve implemented it in my life. I share why I’m following my natural energy cycle, and also some of the benefits that I’m seeing.
