As I was putting the final touches on the Moon Wisdom for Modern Women Workshop and creating a bomb workbook for you something pissed me off
Your girl had a moment of second guessing and wanted to double check some resources before getting up in front of you all and preaching the moon gospel, so what does she do?
She googles “moon cycle and menstrual cycle” of course
If you do that right now you will find an entire front page of search results “debunking” any connection between these cycles
Oh maaaan did that piss me right. the. fuck. off.
So I proceeded to yell not at, but towards my partner – he’s basically an expert at moon wisdom now ;)
YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME
THEY ARE THE EXACT SAME LENGTH!
THEY BOTH HAVE FOUR PHASES!!!
HORMONE PRODUCTION IS REGULATED BY LIGHT!
THE MOON GIVES OFF LIGHT!
YEAH THEY DON’T ALWAYS “SYNC UP” BUT THAT’S BECAUSE OF LIGHT POLLUTION & PHONES & BEING DISCONNECTED FROM THE EARTH & SHIT HORMONES IN OUR FOOD
SO YOU’RE TRYING TO TELL ME THE MOON CAUSES THE LITERAL TIDES IN THE WHOOOOLE MFING OCEAN BUT NOT THE TIDES IN MY LIL BODY THAT’S 70% WATER!?!?!
Okay, Alyssa, It's okay. This is exactly why you need to be teaching this
Because this doubt and disconnection is what patriarchy wants for you
It wants you to question and downplay your own power, your own connection to the literal miracle of birth, creation and death in the universe
It wants you meek, humble and subservient
But that’s not what we’re here for, we’re here for SO. MUCH. MORE.
And you deserve to feel empowered about the very real impacts of the moon on your body, life, emotions, creativity, energy and health
Ready for the miraculous thing that happened this week?
Since I have been talking and thinking more and more about the moon in just the past couple weeks since I conceived of this workshop something rather miraculous happened – I GOT MY PERIOD.
Which in and of itself isn’t miraculous but WHEN I got it is. I’ve always struggled with irregular cycles and my most common cycle length is 36 days.
After months of taking specific supplements to balance my hormones with the support of a naturopathic doctor a few years back, I achieved and maintained a 28 day cycle but during no other period of my life has that happened
Until this week that is!
It arrived like clockwork (or moon magic ;) right on day 28 ✨
I can’t guarantee you healing miracles from this workshop, but I invite you to be available for them and see what gets to shift for you by getting more in touch with the moon 🌒
The moon has soooo much to teach us, if we're willing to pay attention
