Supporting Natural Female Cycle

Natural Female Cycle can be used as a tool and guide to optimize overall physical and emotional well-being. It starts with getting to know your own, unique cycle. Just like there are seasons in nature, each month woman’s body goes through 4 seasons of female cycle – winter, spring, summer and fall. Understanding each of those seasons as well as what’s beneficial to support during each time, helps create vibrant wellness without discomforts overtaking. Below are some ways to support he body naturally and the days are approximate and can be a few more or less for each one’s unique cycle. All of the oils and supplements mentioned below can be purchased HERE.

WINTER

On the day the women’s menstrual cycle starts, marks the winter of the cycle. Days 1-5 of cycle are considered the winter and as with winter in the nature, everything slows down and it’s beneficial to find time to rest during this week. Hormones and energy are low and it can be emotionally sensitive time. This is the time to listen to your INTUITION as well as do some VISIONARY and ANALYTICAL thinking to ALIGN with your VISION.

Since it’s an estrogen phase of the cycle oils that are beneficial to use during this time are CLARY SAGE and blends that contain it such as – SCLARESSENCE, LADY SCLAREOL and DRAGON TIME. Applying these oils around the ankles (vitaflex point for reproductive system) once or twice a day, naturally supports women during this time of the month. Oils that support thyroid will also be beneficial to use during this time. Oils such as MYRTLE, MYRRH, LEMONGRASS or ENDOFLEX applied over our throat support natural energy levels throughout the day.

SPRING

During days 6-14 we enter the spring time of the cycle. During this time estrogen starts to rise and we find ourselves feeling more energetic and productive. This is a great time to start on NEW PROJECTS, PLANNING, STRATEGIZING and BRAINSTORMING. Continuing with CLARY SAGE blends is beneficial during this time as well as adding MINERAL ESSENCE, SUPER B and OMEGAGIZE supplements to support adrenals which are active at this time. Around day 14 thyroid releases a surge of luteinizing hormone. Taking THYROMIN can support thyroid during this time.

SUMMER

Around days 15-17 is the Summer of the cycle. This is the time when COMMUNICATION will be at its peak. Great time for NEGOTIATIONS, MEETINGS and PITCHES. At the start of this phase the ovaries begin to release small amounts of progesterone, which increases daily to a maximum at about day 22. This is a great time to support the cycle with PROGESSENCE PLUS by applying on the forearms from days 15-22 as well as continuing with MINERAL ESSENCE, SUPER B and OMEGAGIZE to support adrenals.

Summer is the fun time of the cycle. You ovulate and feel more energetic and outward focused to nurture relationships.

FALL

Days 18-28 are the FALL of the cycle. This is a time when MENTAL CREATIVITY peaks and a great opportunity for PROJECT COMPLETION, ADMINISTRATIVE TASKS and FOLLOW UP MEETINGS. This is a great time for self-reflection and focusing on self-care. Continue supporting the body with PROGESENCE PLUS through day 21 and starting with day 22 begin to slowly decrease PRO PLUS.

My personal cycle support routine goes like this:

Winter – DRAGON TIME around ankles twice a day and ENDOFLEX on my throat throughout the day. Focusing on rest, my vision, listening to my intuition and making plans for next phase.

Spring – Adding in MINERAL ESSENCE, SUPER B and OMEGAGIZE to support my adrenals while continuing with DRAGON TIME. Working on the plan for the rest of the month, strategy for marketing, and creating workshops.

Summer – Switching from DRAGON TIME to PROGESSENCE PLUS on my forearms every morning while continuing with MINERAL ESSENCE, SUPER Bs and OMEGAGIZE. Scheduling the workshops that I worked on during this time.

Fall – Starting to decrease PROGESSENCE PLUS around day 22 through day 28. Focusing on follow up and relationships cultivated during the month.

Here are two videos I recorded sharing this information on my YouTube channel – WINTER and SPRING

Digestive Bliss through Small Intestine!

Through the Freedom Code session (emotion releasing technique) I have become aware that my small intestine could use some support. Empowered with this information I utilized all the tools in my holistic wellness tool box and went to work!

A LITTLE ABOUT SMALL INTESTINE

I first started to read about small intestine and what it does and quickly came to realize that the majority of digestion happens in our small intestine. Since it’s such a big part of our digestive process, supporting it would improve overall digestion and nutrient absorption. I encourage you to read about the function of your small intestine to educate yourself and get better understanding of how our body works.

DIET CHANGES AND IMPROVEMENTS

We all know that the food we eat has a huge impact on our overall wellness. Diet is the first place to look into for digestive support. Eating a clean diet high in complex, essential fatty acids ad minerals and low in sugary baked goods and acid-producting foods is essential for intestinal health. But even with great diets, we are sometimes lacking the nutrients and enzymes needed for great digestion. Probiotics and digestive enzymes have been great supplements for supporting my digestive system. As well as essential oils that support healthy digestion. I get all my oils and my supplements from Young Living – CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO!

YOGA POSES TO SUPPORT SMALL INTESTINE

Once I knew my diet was the best I could do and I was supplementing with probiotics and enzymes, I went to search for yoga poses to support the small intestine and came across this article and loved the poses suggested. https://myogastudio.ch/yin-yoga-small-intestine-meridian-poses/ I practiced the poses and realized that since small intestine meridian runs through our arms and our shoulders, these poses would be great shoulder openers as well. I created this VIDEO to share what I learned and demonstrate the poses.

OILS, CHAKRAS AND AFFIRMATIONS FOR SMALL INTESTINE

Now diving deeper into small intestine wellness! Every organ vibrates at a certain frequency. When the frequency of the organ goes down due to diet or any other variables, that’s when all these wonderful modalities come into raise the vibrations. The small intestine is supported by Sacral and Solar Plexus chakras. When it’s out of balance you might experience a lack of compassion, charity, lack of hope. When it’s in balance you will experience gut feelings, compassion, love, hope, and source of power.

Oils and supplements to support the small intestine are DiGize, Joy, Hope, Harmony, Purification, Sensation, Peppermint and Fennel. The oils can be applied diluted topically or taken internally ONLY YOUNG LIVING VITALITY OILS CAN BE INGESTED! Supplements that support the small intestine are Comfortone, ICP, Essentialzyme and Inner Defense. YOU CAN GET YOURS HERE!

Affirmations to support the mindset and emotions associated with the small intestine are:

“I have faith, hope and charity”

“I listen to my gut feelings” – notice the connections between gut feelings and small intestine

“I know my source of power”

The POWER of the words we use

Each word we say or THINK (yup, think!!!) has power. It has the power to give life to new ideas, new mindsets, new opportunities or it has the power to discourage, hurt and even plant lies in our mind.

I have come across the term “Conscious Language” through a video I watched. What stood out to me is how a small shift in the words we use can create mindset shifts and that’s powerful. Our brain will believe ANYTHING we tell it, so why not tell it things we want to see in our lives?

First step is to start paying attention to the words or phrases you say without even thinking about it for example, “Things like this always happened to me”, “I am not good at technology”, “I wish I could afford that”, “I’m afraid we can’t do this” and any negative thoughts directed at ourselves “I am not creative”, “I can never be like…”, “I am ugly” etc.

This is not to say that now you are going to start saying words or phrases that are not true, it’s just the way we phrase them will change. For example replacing “I wish I could afford that” with “Every day I am getting closer and closer to my goal”, or “I am not good at technology” with “Every day I learn more and more about technology”, “I’m so stupid” with “I am learning through my experiences”. Give the brain HOPE! EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS POSSIBLE! But it all starts with our BELIEF that it’s possible and our words play a key role in that!

STEPS TO START CHANGING YOUR WORDING

1 – Begin to notice any phrases that you would like to replace.

2 – Replace them with a positive thought or use Google to find affirmations that can help you replace those thoughts.

3 – Try out the new wording and the new idea and adjust it until it feels right for you!

OILS TO USE TO HELP SHIFT THE MINDSET

Open your heart!

In yoga, heart-opening poses are not only beneficial for physical wellbeing but also for emotional healing! Think of phrases like “It hurt my heart”, “My heart felt heavy” etc. These are not just sayings, our heart is an amazing VITAL organ in our body and our overall wellness is dependent on it and therefore opening our heart and softening the general chest area is beneficial to our whole body wellness.

Our heart is associated with the feeling of love. Being able to show love and give love to those around us but also to ourselves. We also need to be able to receive love from those around us. But sometimes due to previous life experiences and the hurts that the heart experienced we choose to close it up. So how do we open it?

~YOGA POSES – heart-opening poses such as Cobra, Cow, Camel, Fish are great at opening the heart.
~AFFIRMATIONS – “I am worthy of the purest love”, “I release and let go of all resentment”, “I am loving to myself and others”, “There is an infinite supply of love”
~OILS – YLANG YLANG. Ylang Ylang is the oil of the heart. When inhaled it helps experience loving feelings towards yourself and others.  
~CRYSTALS/COLORS – Pink quartz is a great crystal to support the heart chakra. Also, the color of green is associated with the heart chakra.
