46: Harness Your Monthly Cycles for Self-Empowerment and Flow with Kara Maria Ananda
We are joined today by healing arts teacher Kara Maria Ananda onto the Curiously You podcast to discuss how you can harness our monthly cycles for self-empowerment and flow with who you are, and what you wish to create in the world. In todays episode we see periods from a more holistic perspective, rather than the narrow perspective we are used to: how it influences are mood, our productivity, our hormonal balance, our flow with our creations, our thoughts and beliefs, our peace of mind, to name a few.Generally speaking, women are used to speaking about their period in hushed voices or in frustration. Kara invites you to overcome the shame and thousands of years of conditioning to embrace and love your cycles. This will allow us to flow with ease through your experiences throughout the month. It starts with tuning into our cycles and coming to understand how our mood fluctuates throughout the month and working as best we can with them, rather than trying to fight against or through them. We also talk about clearing our out-dated stories about the feminine cycle, connecting with and protecting our hormonal balance and taking charge of our cycles in a natural way. This episode is perfect for you if you: Were not aware of the connection between flow and feminine cycles and you want to learn more how you can harness it. Are ready to stop hating on your period, and through loving it learn to accept yourself and how you show up in the world. Want to learn about monthly cycles from a more holistic perspective – your mood, your creations, your fertility, your beliefs, your sexuality and more.
