What does money have to do with the menstrual cycle? It’s surprising how much! This week’s guest on Wild Flow Podcast with Charlotte Pointeaux is Cathy Lemire, The Menstrual Money Coach, is here to help us connect the dots between how our menstrual cycle influences our relationship, behaviours and attitudes around money, understand how our money stories play up across the phases of our cycle, and to take charge of our wealth!
In episode 71 of Wild Flow Podcast I’m chatting with Asina Mona Kupke all about reconnecting to your cyclical nature to tap into your soul’s purpose through the phases of your menstrual cycle, your intuition and working with crystals. We wandered through a delicious conversation which moved through:
How to choose crystal jewellery to support the phases of the menstrual cycle and inner child healing,
What the soul purpose is, and how the soul expresses itself,
How you know you can hear its your soul talking versus your ego,
How your soul voice might change across the phases of your menstrual cycle,
Tools to cultivate a clean, high vibrational vessel in body and mind, so you can tap into the callings of your soul, and come into more alignment with your soul’s purpose, and
How Asina’s soul is calling her to relocate across the world to transform and let go of some parts of her work to create space for the new to come through! Watch this space!
I’m asked all the time how I do it: how do I grow my business, whilst being a present mama of three young kids. How did I start my business and get to this spacious, sustainable place I’m at now, whilst only working 3 days and prioritising my health and wellbeing?
When I was asked this question again yesterday, I thought to myself hang on, I would love to address this really in-depth, to share what’s helped me, and the 3 major mistakes women get caught up in when trying to cultivate a business that serves them too. So I made a video for you.
Inside the video is what I wish for all women to know: whether you are a mum yourself (or intend to be), whether you just want to leave behind the hustle and embed a deep cyclical sustainable way of working, whether you’re going through big changes in life that are urging you to make big changes and you’re not sure how to move towards what you want, this is for you.
I might be in the very busy ‘Mother’ season of life but I am not martyring myself to the traditional gendered role of a Mother (read: being all things, to all people, at all times). This season of life, which for me has included growing three humans and a business, has taught me if nothing else….
That I don’t want to do things the same way anyone else is.
Because my measure of success is very different to anyone else’s.
And so it should be.
There are 3 key mistakes I see people making when they want to grow a business that nourishes, supports and sustains them.
When growing a successful, soulful, sustainable business it’s so important you focus on avoiding these 3 key mistakes, so I’m sharing what these are and how you can avoid them in this video.
I would LOVE you to have a watch because I know this is going to help you so much.
the witches say the veils between the worlds of the dead and the living, the seen and unseen, are thinnest at samhain, the name of the cross-quarter sabbat (celebration) between autumn equinox and winter solstice.
mystics, pagans and those who appreciate the seasons and cycles of life find much magick, power and transformation available in listening to what the spirits tell us, and in facing the darkness, arriving frosts and scent of death on the air of samhain, because it gives us a chance to go inwards, to reflect on whether you’re living your most authentic life, and to discern what needs to die so you can come closer to your truest essence.
My guest on the new episode of Wild Flow podcast and our grief guide is a woman I had the absolute pleasure of being guided, held and introduced to the embodied experience of pleasure at a time I was knee-deep in motherhood and re-discovering myself as a mother of three, back in 2020, and needing to come home to myself on the other side of a big personal transformation. Allow me to introduce you to Kate Leiper.
When you want to create real change, its important that you don’t follow what you think you should be focusing on. instead, ask yourself what’s true for you. how will you know? your body will tell you.
Have you picked a word for the year yet? A New Year’s resolution? Is your year mapped out with strict timelines and a whole lotta hustle? Maybe so… But if this approach doesn’t feel quite right to you, I’d love to offer you a different way: a more feminine, embodied, feelings-based way of setting intentions for the year ahead. In this episode I’m sharing my embodied intention-setting technique which I guide all my private wild feminine coaching clients through, so you can get crystal-clear, alive, juicy and deeply inspired to call in your most luscious year yet.
What’s more, the cycle mysteries teach us that New Years Day is not the correct time to be declaring “New Year, New Me!”. Instead, there’s meant to be an in-built hibernation, restorative time to let the death of the last year complete, and the visioning and dreaming of the new year to occur before we rush in all guns blazing with our new habits.
I suggest we allow ourselves one Moon, until New Moon (22nd Jan 2023) to let our visions become clear, so we’re sure we’re choosing the right path that honours our capacity, desires, needs and energy, rather than overriding and pushing through. Let’s resist the urge to overdo it and then quit at the first hurdle, all burnt out, and instead take a cyclical, embodied approach right from the get-go.
I’ve been wanting to have a conversation about sex and sexuality on the podcast for some time now. Sex, desire, sexuality, and sexual pleasure are such taboos and often get left to the wayside and yet its such an intrinsic part of the menstrual cycle, and of our humanity. This conversation has left me feeling nourished, connected, soft, curious and whole. I hope that in listening you feel that way too.
Allow me to introduce you to Ruby. Ruby May is a devotee of the Yin, facilitator, community & connection catalyst, midwifing a world in which cyclical awareness is integrated into the way we relate and shape the world.
With a background in working professionally with intimacy and sexuality and a stint working as a dominatrix, Ruby became fascinated in the phenomena of Feminine leadership and how the womb could become a gateway into embodying this.
She is the community leader for the graduates of the Menstruality Leadership programme for the Red School, the biggest education centre globally for Menstrual Cycle Awareness and her own initiative, Know Your Flow. Both support the cultivation of community for developing body literacy, inspired leadership and social change, with over 200 members from over 20 countries.
The author of “Know Your Flow: A cycle Tracking Journal for Personal and Planetary Revolution” and creatrix behind”The Game”, Ruby currently lives in the creative cauldron of Berlin.
Listen, enjoy, share with your partner and friends, and allow this conversation to inspire you into deeper relationship with yourself and your cyclical experience. Happy listening
Pleasure. What is pleasure? Does the word fill you with shame, guilt or uneasy feelings? Do you feel like pleasure isn’t for you? Does this potent word conjure up thoughts of sex, and how comfortable you are with your own sexuality?
Pleasure is so much more than this, and my guest on Wild Flow the Podcast, Rowena Hobbins, is here to invite you into reframing pleasure as an essential part of your path to healing and empowerment. In fact she’s here to invite you to join the Pleasure Club!
This juicy chat with my soul sister and biz bestie dives deep into:
Our own personal relationships, attitudes and experiences of pleasure both in the past and present,
What pleasure means to us, and what it means to you, and why it’s not all about orgasms,
What blocks you from relating to and accessing pleasure,
Why you can’t open to pleasure until you’ve done the deep inner work, looking at childhood patterns and conditioning around pleasure first,
Why pleasure is essential to cultivate and learn to hold in your body, and how this missing link has been life changing for both of us
and how Rowena is on a mission to invite women to reclaim their pleasure birthright in her new Pleasure Club in 2023 (this sounds seriously amazing!)
In this episode of Wild Flow Podcast I sat down for a delicious conversation with Hannah Brown who offers menstrual story work to women to help them unpick the threads of their stories, lived experiences, and relationship with their body and cycle. By exploring the patterns that run through your womb story, you can challenge what’s true, what’s yours and what needs letting go, with the aim of rejecting menstrual shame and reclaiming your cycle. Hannah is a Children’s social worker, trainer/consultant and menstrual cycle coach who has worked with people to support change for nearly two decades. She’s also a client of mine, having been coaching with me and part of my Cycle Sorcery group journey so this conversation feels like a beautiful natter with a good friend.
Today’s guest Emma Campbell is my old listening buddy who I met when we both had small children, and we’re growing our businesses. We both wanted to do things in a way that honoured the season of life we we’re in, and permitted us to simply be where we were at. When I shared that I am a Cycle Coach with Emma for the first time, she soaked up all the information I gave her and began syncing her life and work to the moon, whilst she was breastfeeding.
Fast forward to today and Emma is sharing cycle awareness in corporate teams and seeing huge shifts in leadership and performance when women and leaders notice how staff feel, communicate and perform differently across their cycles. Cycle-aware workplaces are happening people! Listen to Wild Flow Podcast with Charlotte Pointeaux to learn about :
how we both use cycle wisdom to support the sustainable, aligned and impactful growth of our own businesses whilst being present at home
the important lessons Emma learnt from connecting with her own cycle
why cycle awareness is so important and impactful to take into the workplace and how it’s being received by her clients!
how cycle awareness is like a powerful personality test for personal growth and team performance.
