Hello dear sisters,
Well May has arrived and it feels like the months are flying by! Today I celebrate birthing my eldest boy who is 27 years young! We had a beautiful water birth all those years ago. Happy Birthday Jericho!
Well I’ve been lucky enough to have brought in some much needed rest throughout April with a family holiday- our first one ever! Followed by a weeks womens retreat on Ynys Enlli. Whilst away with the kids on Gozo I had my moontime and slowly immersed into myself to face some changes in my life that need to be made to ease stress, and then on the weeks retreat I took the opportunity to go deep into prayer each day, and had quite an interesting body and mind releasing response though my dreams!
What I’m also learning on my perimenopause journey is that a gentle ‘re-entry’ home is vital to prevent overwhelm, anxiety, hot flushes!! So I’ve learned to pace myself and not let my ‘workaholic self’ take over!! I must admit, when I did eventually get around to switching on my Facebook it was lovely to see Mandy on the BBC News and then Becky on the Swansea news featuring menstruation, self care, period poverty and alternative products!
I’ve been overwhelmed by the positive responses from mums and magazines that have reviewed Why Does Mummy Bleed, and I’ve put together a special bundle aimed at mums who havent tried Moon Times products before. It includes the book Why Does Mummy Bleed, 3 light flow pads and a medium Moon Sponge set (2 sponges). Order here.
My last few mala sets- I’m winding up this product so this is the last chance to get a set of cycle charting Moon Malas, these are special edition crystal ones made with red jasper, jade and quartz!
Two offerings this week, one on creating deep rest– one of the lessons from cycle awareness which carries over into being a vital tool in perimenopause, and one on my personal site with some musings on ‘Vulnerability or Over Sharing?’
I’d love to know your thoughts!
