How To Set Embodied Intentions For The New Year

how to set embodied intentions for the new year with Charlotte Pointeaux- Wild Feminine Cycle Coach

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.

Sex And The Menstrual Cycle on wild flow podcast

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

Welcome To The Pleasure Club

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!)

Reclaim Your Menstrual Story to Reclaim Your Body

telling your menstrual story with Hannah Brown and Charlotte Pointeaux on Wild Flow Podcast

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.

Embracing Cycle Wisdom To Amplify Your Impact As a Leader

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 To Embody Your Next Level Self

Charlotte Pointeaux talks about her winning international coach of the year on her Wild Flow podcast and how to embody your next level self

In 2022 I had the most epic news: i won the international coach of the year award and it blew my mind! In fact, just being named a finalist at the end of the year was a huge enough deal and I quickly fell into a bit of a spiral of not feeling enough, imposter syndrome, and wondering how I could expand into my next level self who could actually win this! Fast forward and I did win. And I didn’t vomit on myself when I accepted the award (although I did have tears and make a lot of noise, more on why this was totally acceptable to me in this episode!)

I hear so many clients share – and have lived it myself – that embodying our highest self, or welcoming the success we desire, or feeling like a winner even if we aren’t sure we deserve it, can be SUCH a block.
