Intuition: When to Say No and Love Yourself First

Did you know that on average, Australian females experience between 450-500 periods in her lifetime, with the average cycle spanning between 21-35 days, and the average bleed lasting between 2-7 days?

Once we begin menstruating (at menarche – pronounced “men-ar-kee”) which occurs anywhere these days between roughly the ages of 8-15, and commonly around ages 12-13, we begin our monthly bleed (menstrual cycle) until we reach menopause which occurs approximately at the age of 50 (although again, this can occur much earlier or later as it is do individual).

After menarche our periods will be irregular for most of our teen years until the rhythm is established and our hormones settle into their natural, beautiful cycle. You might notice that some months you bleed for longer, or more heavily than other times, or that your cycle isn’t the same length each time. This is all ok – everyone’s cycle is different.

cyclic rituals, sacred self-care and an oracle card reading for your cycle

cyclic rituals, sacred self-care and oracle card reading for your cycle

In this episode of Wild Flow Podcast I sat down for a delicious conversation with my friend Clare Foale, a writer, an artist, a teacher, a space holder, a tapping practitioner, a questioner and an ocean-lover. Clare and I met originally in cycle facilitator training with Mitle Southey, and shared visions and journeys whilst we sat next to each other. I loved her earrings and beautifully warm wisdom and laugh. 

Since then Clare has trained with me to become a Certified First Moon Circle Facilitator, and Clare has claimed her creativity by, amongst other things, dreaming and birthing her magickal oracle card deck called Spacious, which is all about honouring our desires, needs, and sacred selves. 

What menstrual / cycle awareness means to both of us,

How we can use incredibly simple reflective questions to support us through the more challenging as well as expansive moments of our menstrual cycles, and daily life as women, mothers, space holders,

Why Clare does not like the term self-care and her own personal practice that she finds infinitely more nourishing instead,

She looks back at the last decade of her life from turning 30 to turning 40, and shares the love notes of wisdom she shares with her younger self,

And Clare offers us an oracle card reading from her new card deck Spacious to hold space for ourselves through the four phases of our next menstrual cycle. This is a beautiful menstrual cycle awareness ritual!

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!

Finding Our Inner Nature Inside The Wheel Of The Year

the 8 sabbats in the wheel of the year

the wheel of the year asks us to pay close, meaningful attention to the ever-turning seasons of the year, and invites us into a mindfulness practice of observing the 8 traditionally honoured sabbats.

Occurring every 6 weeks all year long, it’s amazing to realise that we don’t just have four seasons, there are actually 8 different energies at play. And where I live, the traditional custodians of the land, the Gundungurra people know there to be 6 seasons in the year.

In ancient times and traditional cultures, people lived in alignment with the 8 seasonal sabbats (festivals) of the year. Its how farmers knew when to plant, harvest and leave the earth bare. It’s how people knew when to tend the land, harvest fruits, and preserve stores ahead of a long winter. Nowadays we have lost this connection to the land because we don’t need it to survive: instead we can get food all year round, flown in from anywhere, so we never have to care for the land and what we need.

Traditional ways like this have been eroded by industrialisation, in search of what’s cheapest and most convenient. But this comes at a great cost. The soils are depleted, we are not getting the nourishment we need, climate change is almost at the breaking point of no return, and we are seeing extinctions at an unbelievable rate.

All because we forgot that we ARE nature: inside and out.

When we lose sight of ourselves as nature, we forget that we have inner seasons, we change everyday, and that this is a biological process necessary for our health and vitality.
