Empowering Women With Guest Marta Willis CONNECTION WITH THE EARTH THROUGH THE WOMB

they feel different during the different stages of their cycle can give them the power to treat their body and arising emotions accordingly.

Being a woman this time around is truly special but how we live and experience it is individual and unique. How often are we actually connected to our own sacred feminine energy and aware of how special our centre of creation, our womb is... I invite you beautiful wombyn to place your right hand on your womb, and left on your heart, and breath deep into this special space connecting your heart and womb. Even if you do not have a womb physically any more, this area holds the energy of creation. You are the magical creator of new beginnings, sprouting new life, ideas. Your womb space is a forever changing, layer shedding, cyclically renewing sacred space.

I believe honest communication and informative sharing right from the start can wipe away any shame, worry and discomfort that might be sitting in their mind before they are getting their first cycle. I believe we are living in times where women more and more are reaching back to nature and old traditions to find their sense of belonging and to feel balanced.

What is your connection to your moon cycle? To your womb? Do you remember the day you stepped into your womanhood?

Our menstrual cycle is a source of insight and renewal. Learning and knowing about the different phases can be really empowering. If we listen to our body, we can give it what it needs. What is a period: Our body's hormones fluctuate so we can release an egg each month; we build up tissue in our uterus to be the perfect ground for a fertilised egg.
