I am woman, I am fearless, I am sexy, I'm divine

The womb of a woman should be worshipped and cherished.

It's the place of no-thing.

It's the bearer of all of humanity.

It should be nurtured and cared for and honored for not only bringing people into the world but also for manifesting brilliant ideas to life.

It's where all of creation is born.

It all quite literally begins in the core.

A woman's menstrual cycle should be recognized for what it is, a divine intervention process to shed away old toxic energies and make way for a new cycle of self-growth and reflection to occur. It represents release and letting go, and sometimes, it can hurt.

But it needs to be appreciated.

In historic Native American culture, women who were menstruating were viewed as reverent, holding great spiritual power. These women were given an opportunity to remove themselves from their daily routines to revitalize and seize their spiritual energy.

More and more countries these days are starting to honor a women's menstrual cycle for the sacredness of it, or at least putting policies into place to better support women. Spain was one of the first countries to implement the paid menstrual leave that gives the right to a three-day “menstrual” leave of absence - with the possibility of extending it to five days - for those with disabling periods, which can cause severe cramps, nausea, dizziness and even vomiting.

If you're anything like me, especially before I started taking better care of my body, you know how needed and appreciated those three days off would be when Aunt Flow decided to come for her monthly visit.

Fun Fact: Did you know a women's cycle is meant to align with the full moon cycle?

Before electricity, women ovulated when the moon was full, and bled when the moon was dark. The pineal gland in our brain sends messages to our ovary, by hormones, to release an egg based on the amount of light our brain senses in the night when we are asleep. At the point of most light in the night, the full moon, we are programmed to ovulate.

Women who live in the country are more likely to be in synch’ with the moon, as are women living in primitive cultures. Ovulating at the full moon means we bleed at the dark of the moon, the time when the energy is more inwardly focused anyway. The average menstrual cycle is the same as the lunation cycle 28/29 days.

Modern life with the artificial light and constantly bright nights has disrupted our natural inclination to be in synchrony with the moon. The biological blueprint for our fertility cycle is very different to how it happens now. Imagine the disruption this creates. Not only are we meant to be synchronised with the moon phases, we are also meant to be synchronised with each other. Like we are sometimes.

(To read more about how valuable it can be to understand each phase of our cycle and how it connects to the moon, check out the source of this brilliant explanation here.)

Birth control is one of the absolute worst things we can put into our bodies, it completely alters the natural cycle of your period and destroys our healthy hormone levels. It literally disconnects us from the Divine Moon energy which seriously damages the connection to our own internal intuition.

I took birth control for a few months at a time and even tried an IUD for almost a year (another disaster story coming up about that), but eventually always stopped because I absolutely hated the way it made me feel. The artificialness of it seeped into my energy and my body rejected it quickly,

I was at least still connected to myself enough to finally listen and stopped taking it for good a few years ago. Yes it can be helpful especially for the younger generation as they step into adulthood but we have to find better ways to protect women from unwanted pregnancies without completely altering their natural healthy state of being. We have to stop prescribing birth control as a bandaid to try to fix things like acne and heavy period symptoms and start taking care of our body like it needs to be while connecting it more with Mother Earth.

We need to start remembering the divineness in us all.


Today when my period decided to come four days early, I didn't pout and curse like I used to every time it arrived (especially before I was expecting). I was excited, I was giddy, I was grateful, and I praised.

Today is a Sagittarius Strawberry Full Moon, and I haven't been aligned with the natural cycle of the moon in a very very long time. With the recent start of my Summer Self-Love Journey, the timing of it couldn't be any better.

I have officially started a new chapter and a massive new cycle of my life, and finally, for the first time ever, I can now confidentially say that I have left everything I needed to from my past behind and am ready to love and honor myself and my body at a deeper, more sacred level than I ever have before.

Happy Full Moon beautiful friends ✨


I am woman, I am fearless
I am sexy, I'm divine
I'm unbeatable, I'm creative
Honey, you can get in line
I am feminine, I am masculine
I am anything I want
I can teach you, I can love you
If you got it goin' on

- I am Woman, Emmy Meli
