This week has been interesting for me. It was full. I started feeling like I had quite a bit on my plate all of a sudden, and I was feel challenged to keep up with it all.
Finishing my tele-course for women, driving a few hundred miles in a week, appointments, writing deadlines, coupled with an overflow of emotion coming through me was enough to leave me in a bit of a state of overwhelm.
Summertime for me usually equals spending a lot of time naked.
I'm blessed to spend most of my time in a very rural setting, surrounded completely by trees, amidst acres upon acres of woods. This is where I live with my partner and we absolutely adore the secluded privacy that comes with living rurally.
I wanted to connect today, to let you know that there are only two more days to register for my upcoming teleseminar course, How to Have a Cycle That's Sexy, Sacred & Doesn't Suck!
My energy was raised so high in conjunction with the Full Moon, coupled with some intense life transitions I am navigating this week, and then my moon cycle began yesterday. All of this has been a recipe for exhaustion that made me realize I was in need of some serious rest, rejuvenation, and self-care.
This week I'm visiting one of my dearest girlfriend's, Camille Giglio, at her off-grid home and farm up in Midcoast Maine. Being here with her this week deeply reminds me (as does any quality time spent with close girlfriends) of the precious connection women can share with one another. However, my connection to other women wasn't always this way. It didn't always feel "precious".
We all have those days where we feel stuck and down on ourselves.
As women, I feel that we have particularly strong ups and downs on a regular basis, considering the fact that we relate to life in such an emotional way. Sometimes it might be challenges with body image, other times it might be uncomfortable health issues, or maybe even feeling like our creativity is locked up.
If you read part 1 of this article, you now know that Fertility Awareness is pretty amazing stuff. This method of charting your menstrual cycles is all about learning to see the patterns of your cycles, and discovering what your unique fertility patterns are.
I've got a pretty up close and personal video to share with you this week.
The topic is near and dear to my heart, mostly because I have personal experience with it but also because I know it effects more than just me -- it effects women all over the world, all of the time.
It's called the Perfect Vagina hangover.
