Do you experience overwhelming emotions, irritability, depression, sensitivity, mood swings, anger, anxiety, fearfulness, intolerance, frustration or a heightened inner critic just before your bleed?
Imagine that you had a monthly safe container to release the pre-menstrual angst, tension and emotional overwhelm. Giving yourself full permission to feel what needs to be felt, say what needs to be said and move your body how it needs to be moved. Remember, emotions are energy-in-motion. If you hold onto them and leave them unexpressed without release, they can go stagnant and get stored into that gorgeous body of yours.
Why do I feel so emotional just before my bleed?
During Autumn (the week before your bleed) there is a rise and fall in oestrogen and progesterone levels, this fluctuation in hormones can impact our emotional landscape and produce the symptoms listed above. More interestingly though, the veil between the subconscious mind becomes thinner and more active during the pre-menstrual phase. This means that any blocked, repressed or unresolved emotions will readily come to the surface and into our conscious awareness.
With our heightened clarity, insight and intuition, Autumn is the perfect time to see what needs to be faced, what needs to be cleared, what needs to be released. Quite incredibly, it is an inbuilt filtering and personal growth system. If held in the right way, some real gifts of awareness can take place during Autumn.
If you experience any of the symptoms listed above then they are a loud inner alarm, calling you home to yourself, to reflect on the things that are out of alignment with the life you truly want to be living. Perhaps it’ll be a gentle whisper to slow down or it could be a thunderous shake up to initiate some major life changes. It isn’t all about the negative stuff though, you can have bursts of inspiration at this time, recognising what could be improved in your projects and what could work better in your relationships. Either way, your wonderfully wise body and emotions are providing direct feedback, it just takes a little courage to tune in and be with what is communicated.
What happens if I continue to ignore how I’m feeling?
If we don’t pay attention to the emotional feedback in Autumn then it will have a knock on effect into the new cycle. The tension will continue to build, making you more sensitive to others. You can end up taking things out on your partner, kids, friends, colleagues or directing your struggle inwards, cranking up the volume of the inner critic. If we do not release some of the tension during Autumn then our periods can be heavier and uncomfortable, we can experience lower energy levels throughout the month and when we get round to the next cycle, the tension can be amplified even more if the emotions are not properly acknowledged. Imagine how much baggage you have been carrying month after month after month.
When you fully empty your emotional container you can start your new cycle afresh. A new you can emerge and expand based on the true life and values you want to live by. Through the process of Pre-Menstrual Permission, I will compassionately hold a space for you to explore, express and release, without needing to fix or do anything with what arises. If requested, I will guide you to discover what part of your cycle will best support you to take action on your new awareness.
Give yourself permission to be the full expression of who you are, to feel, to release and be reborn each and every month.

”“I’m just wanting to give the deepest gratitude and appreciation for helping us men folk get a bit more clued up on the monthly cycle of womb owners. It’s been very liberating and beneficial, I found this such a useful interpretation for me to follow, and to have more awareness around the flow of emotional, hormonal and physical shifts as the Cycle mature’s and renews itself through the weeks”.HugsUK
