I don’t even know how to start this post. I just know I need to write it.
50% of the people in this world will bleed monthly for a significant portion of their life. It happens. The good men of the world will support numerous women during their menstrual cycle, whether it is as a partner, friend, co-worker, or family member. The bad men of the world will exacerbate the cycles of the women near them. Really everyone has to deal with periods.
I love to talk about the things people don’t like to talk about, so a women’s cycle has always topped my list of favorite discussion topics. Now that I’m in business smoothing out women’s menstrual cycles and occasionally making it more fertile I’ve got even more to say.
I don’t have a problem with periods or bleeding or the changes that happen right before and right after. I have a problem with women who don’t respect their body. The cycle is one of the best weathervanes of the body. It reveals to us how strong we are, how much blood we have, how much heat we have, how much qi we have.
So to celebrate the fabulous menstrual cycle I’m planning the next six weeks to discuss periods. One Window of Heaven Words post per week will be about bleeding. Here is the line up to get you excited.
Week One: PMS
Week Two: Blood
Week Three: Duration and Frequency
Week Four: Cramps
Week Five: Temperature
Week Six: Female Intuition During the Cycle
Male readers, it is time to step up and be the mindful one in the relationship whether it is as a partner, family member or friend. Sometimes women can’t see the rhythms as they experience them. Read these posts, learn a little something about the mysterious 28 days and be an advocate for the women in your life!
Just think some of you will get to ovulate, bleed and ovulate again while you are learning. Aren’t you excited!
