Acceptance & Surrender

Rachael CrowMenopause, Menstrual Health, Musings

I’ve been posting over on my Instagram about #selflove and #selfkindness which to me feels a huge part of acceptance and surrender.

For me, my cycle awareness has taught me a lot about acceptance- especially now I’m in peri-menopause and I just don’t know what’s going on with my cycle! Because I have practiced listening to my womb for so many years, even when my cycle feels ‘off the map’ I can still tune into the ebb and flow of my body.

So what is acceptance? For me, it’s self love- loving all the parts of myself- even the parts that are in dis-ease. It’s self kindness, being there for myself, even when I want to hide away. It’s being hopeful, creating achievable goals and staying in the vibe of abundance. It’s the “EXHALE and RELAX” feeling.

Believing I am worthy, worthy of love, happiness, peace and contentment.

Being present- making every moment count!

Techniques that help me stay present and not go over into anxiety and overwhelm (which can easily happen as a mum in perimenopause) – EFT is great, tapping out to release anxiety and irritations, meditation or whatever spiritual practice you resonate with, and journalling, getting it all out!

And after that…I surrender, I lay down my burdens. I trust the Universe/Spirit to guide my day.
