Miranda Grey an author, artist, healer who breaks down the menstrual period. From her book Red Moon.
Take action in tune with who you are.
Identify what you love, what you are good at, where your talent lie.
These are your unique gifts to express into the world.
Taking action, high self-belief, optimism, risk-taking, logical thinking, easy learning, good memory and higher levels of concentration, planning and organizing, research.
This is the time to start something new. Start the new diet or fitness regime, write up your CV and research jobs, learn something relevant to your work, catch up on work unfinished in your menstrual phase. Make a list of everything you need to do and work alone so that you can work fast.
Focus on mental tasks such as budgets, creating reports, strategic planning, and reading complex materials.
If we look at the world through blue glasses it looks blue.
If we look through pink glasses it looks pink.
But if we shut our eyes and feel the world with our hands we know its true shape.
The Goddess asks you to shut the eyes of your mind and feel with your heart.
Understanding people’s emotions and needs, altruism, productiveness, practical focus, good communication and listening skills, ability to help and nurture others, emotional strength, mediation and conflict resolution. This is the time to create and nurture productive relationships you are a natural team player. Run meetings, carry out staff assessment, customer relations and complaints management.
Empathize with the needs of co-workers, clients and target audiences and focus on selling your ideas to people. Market yourself.
Also help other people to achieve their workloads and needs, and perhaps for a week be the workplace ‘Agony Aunt’.
All the love, acceptance and worth you ever desired lies within the Goddess.
Stop, relax, and she will enter.
Now you have love, acceptance and worth,
What are you going to do?
Peaks of compulsive creativity and inspiration, non-logical thinking, intuition, ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking, critical analysis, solution creation, the need to clear out.
The pre-menstrual phase is a time of decreasing physical energy and stamina, but if we do tasks when we have the energy and rest when we don’t, we can make this a highly productive and beneficial phase.
Review the ‘to do’ list and delete or delegate non-essential tasks. Look for problems and create ‘fixes’. Give time to your wild creativity – give it projects or problems and write down your ideas and insights as they occur.
Avoid teams and meetings and work alone so that you can work at your own pace. Clear out things that no longer work well and tidy your workspace.
Enjoy and embrace this quiet time.
You have permission from the Goddessto make time today to feel happy.
Inner knowing, ability to accept and let go, big picture thinking, ability to reflect and to commit, positive visualization, simplicity, recognizing core needs and referencing the mission statements of projects or the company.
This is a time of low physical energy, so we need to slow down to receive the optimal skill sets of this phase.
Think about the bigger picture and the mission statements of projects, employers, and your life to see if they are in alignment.
Make the big decisions – to change the direction of a project, to change jobs, to go for promotion, or leave a partnership – and to commit to something new.
Reflect on tasks, focus on the real needs and on how to create the next step. It is the optimal time to let go of the emotional baggage of the previous month.
“Any woman can do any task at any time of the month do it well. But if a woman does a task during optima days in her cycle, she can excel” -Miranda Grey
