Menstruation is a sign of good health. Without menstruation there would be no human life. The female body does its monthly cyclical dance of fluctuating hormones, releasing an egg, building tissue, thickening the uterus and then menstruating. Menstruation takes place when the female body releases the uterine lining that was built up to possibly nourish a new life. Menstruation is a time of releasing and letting go in preparation to do the dance all over again.
Finding simple ways to acknowledge and celebrate the flow within your womb each month is a step toward honoring and loving your natural body cycles. When you love and care for your body, you experience your cycles from a more empowered context. Your monthly cycle becomes your ally, a guide to healing and balance.
