I wrote a list of affirmations to help form an attitude of appreciation and gratitude for period cycles.
Gratitude and Appreciation of Your Period
Let’s dwell on the changes within the natural universe.
There are transitions everywhere.
Our planet undergoes transitions, orbiting as it creates the solar year, tilting on its axis as it creates the seasons, spinning on its axis as it creates day and night. Within every day it returns the same face to the sun, within every year it returns to the same angle of its axis, and again within every year it returns to the same place in its orbit.
All life enters into the flow of reproduction, growing, conceiving, birthing, and dying. Each life form participates in this cycle, participates in this regular pattern even as it shifts.
Your own period cycle is a beautiful reflection of the cycles of the universe.
Your period is a vibrant vital sign. It is evidence that your body is united with the cycles of the universe. Your period is a healthy and beautiful time of month.
Feel the movement of the deep inner muscles of the uterus. They are coordinated. They are powerful. Give them permission to move, to work, to expand and contract.
Your body is endowed with deep wisdom concerning its needs. Notice what your body is telling you.
During your period, your body thirsts for the liquids it requires while it does its work. It signals its thirst through dry mouth and headaches. Nourish your body with calming liquids.
Your body sends you fatigue to ask for rest during your period. Give it sleep.
Your body asks for chocolate, green vegetables, and proteinaceous meats and cheeses to maintain itself now and replenish itself later with new tissue once this part of the cycle is over. Feed your body the nutrients it needs.
Your body’s inner muscles pressure you, signaling a need for oxygen. Fill your blood vessels with oxygen by exercising generously.
Your body and its period are in sync.
