Menstrual Phase ~ Day 1-7
The bleeding phase of your cycle, also known as 'Inner Winter' is your most powerful phase. Your inner wisdom is heightened and can more deeply access your inner intuition.
During this time, rest and retreat, nourish and nurture. Any form of self care during this phase will support your mind, body and soul. Give yourself the space to process what is coming for you, and allow yourself to let go of places, people and things that are no longer serving you.
+ Rest and retreat
+ Let go and surrender
+ Tap into your wisdom and intuition
Follicular Phase ~ Day 8-14
Think rebirth, renewal, a new beginning, and a feeling of heightened energy and happiness as your 'Inner Spring' is awakened.
During this phase your body prepares for a potential pregnancy with increased follicle stimulating hormone and increased levels of estrogen.
Renewed energy will see you planting seeds, and setting intentions for the month ahead, as you step out of your comfort zone and and take inspired action on the wisdom, intuition and inspiration your received during inner winter.
+ Increased energy
+ Plant seeds of intentions
+ Focus and inspired action
Ovulation ~ Day 15-21
Ovulation occurs halfway through the average cycle, and begins with the release of at least one mature egg. It’s a 1-2 day window when we are most fertile, so if you're trying to conceive, now is the perfect time for some love-making with that someone special.
Your 'Inner Summer' phase, brings dynamic and expressive energy, creativity and playfulness, nurturing deeper connections, and holding space for those around you.
Now is the time to ask for what you truly desire. You are fully in your creative power and deeply connected to your energy centre. Let the energy of your decision manifest in the most magical of ways.
+ Expressive, creative + playful energy
+ Increased pleasure
+ Ask for what you desire
Luteal Phase ~ Day 22-28
Your 'Inner Fall' phase sees progesterone levels increase, causing the uterine wall to thicken and prepare for implantation of a fertilized egg. If implantation doesn't occur, the unfertilized egg begins to breakdown, and the body prepares for menstruation.
You may notice yourself winding down, or feeling more inward and introverted. Your energy levels are beginning to decrease, and you may find yourself craving time alone to indulge in some sacred self care.
Become present with yourself, allow yourself to rest and relax, and create space for yourself. Let this space allow you to find clarity, answers you have been seeking, or spark a new vision within you.
+ Introverted energy
+ Presence, self love and self care
+ Reflective yet inspired
