I’ve been on a journey to discover ways to help myself and others live their best lives on earth.
What I see are a lot of women suffering from anxiety, insomnia, stress and mental health challenges which impact all areas of their lives.
Many have tried different approaches to achieve their wellbeing, reduce weight and manage their mental health, only to be frustrated by the lack of results.
What most don’t understand is how powerful their subconscious mind is, and that it affects all aspects of their lives: mental, emotional and physical. The subconscious mind influences everything.
With the onset of the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, all the emotional, physical and mental challenges that women face throughout their lives start to intensify. That’s when we need to uncover the wise woman inside us – one that embraces the changes, works with these changes and begins to harness the wisdom inherent within. It all starts with the mind and a shift of perspective.
✔ Manage the physical, mental and emotional symptoms of menopause and perimenopause.
✔ Reduce cravings, lower weight and increase energy levels.
✔ Manage stress and anxiety.
✔ Heal past wounds and make peace with your past story.
✔ Promote feelings of peace and calm, and build more resilience when facing obstacles.
✔ Improve your relationships – foremost with love for yourself. Connect with yourself and nurture your own individual needs. Reignite the connection with others.
✔ Reconnect to your wise woman’s heart and discover your soul’s unique power.
✔ Bring back playfulness and joy to your life.
Recognize the impacts of perimenopause and menopause and what areas of your life need more attention.
Reset yourself physically, emotionally and mentally. And tap into the deep spiritual aspect of yourself.
Empower yourself by implementing new practices in your daily life that will positively impact your results.
In a world of increasing distraction, it’s now more important than ever to rekindle the ways of the Wise Women in order to find peace and comfort of body, mind and spirit.
With child-bearing years over, women traditionally embraced the changes of life and became wise elders. Their focus moved from the outer to the inner world.
They believed in the power of energy and invited healing, love, forgiveness, and peace into their lives through directed intent. They understood the importance of energetic bodies and the connection between the energy pathways in the body and life changes.
This journey reignited the connection with oneself which was seen as the most fulfilling purpose while inhabiting the physical body. Additionally, it allowed women to form connections with others on a similar journey, sharing stories, fostering compassion, understanding, heart-felt love and kindness.
The first step of the Wise Woman journey is to embrace change and reconnect with your innate and unique power.
You will learn how to open up the channels with your wise self and feel more calm, empowered, present and peaceful in your day-to-day life.
We live in a very sophisticated body, which I call a ‘feedback device’. It is wise and intelligent and is always seeking homeostasis or balance. Being receptive to this wisdom may seem incredibly overwhelming when in the throes of perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms.
But there are so many wonderful tools available to us that regulate, promote harmony, peace and restore balance.
Benefits: These practices promote presence of mind and ease in life. When the body-mind is at ease, homeostasis and balance can occur, allowing for optimal repair and healing in the body. This gives rise to a calm, clear, and focused state of mind. Emotionally, these practices help us respond to life rather than react, making us more available to ourselves and others. We then begin to broadcast a healthy signal into the world, and our world responds accordingly.
Much of our patterning is inherited, stemming from our conditioning in this lifetime and the ancestral wounds we carry through family lines. In scientific terms, this is referred to as methylation. Our environment, both internal and external, profoundly impacts our physiology, mentality, and emotions, and these effects are passed down generations.
The subconscious mind holds the data about these wounds, which can manifest in our body, in our tendencies, and character traits.
During practices such as meditation or hypnosis, or when we transcend the body-mind and step outside the constraints of time and space, there is an increased opportunity for breaking patterns, the release of this wounding, and opening pathways for healing to occur.
By accessing these states of consciousness, we create space for healing and liberation from the burdens we carry. We liberate ourselves from guilt, from shame, from fears and victimhood, and reconnect with our true power.
Much of our waking time is consumed by distractions and continual stimulation of the nervous system.
Particularly during perimenopause and menopause there can be symptoms of overwhelm, brain-fog, stress, lethargy, anxiety, depression and poor sleep patterns.
To achieve balance in body and mind, it is important to create space for silence and rest.
And the practices of meditation, mindfulness and hypnosis can be very accessible, incredibly short and simple, and very easily incorporated into our daily routines.
Through these practices, we can unlock our potential, harmonize our being, and allow the body-mind wisdom to flourish. By dedicating time to contemplate and observe, we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, fostering profound growth and transformation.
The Asanas or postures of Yoga aim to maintain the body as a healthy “vehicle” for the union of self-consciousness and universal consciousness. Theses practices play a significant role in promoting balance in bodily processes, invigorating, strengthening, and increasing flexibility, allowing us to move through the world with ease and comfort.
For perimenopause and menopause, there are specific postures and movements that particularly benefit the organs of the pelvis, the pelvic floor musculature, the lower back, the hips, the adrenal glands, pituitary, thyroid and gut. When practised regularly these have very tangible effects on the symptoms of Perimenopause and menopause.
By incorporating these practices into one’s routine, we can harness the power of yoga to support physical well-being, cultivate balance, and navigate the transformative stages of perimenopause and menopause with grace and resilience.
