Femininity = Weakness
This couldn’t be further from the truth. One of the most beautiful things that cycle alignment teaches us, is how to appreciate and embrace the downward part of our cycle, and through that how we receive so much more clarity by honouring our rest and subsequent rejuvenation.
Embracing our powerful yin energy is not a weakness.

Feel guilty for stopping or taking a break
Feel like we failed if we don’t achieve all the things we set out to that day
Equate resting with laziness
Don’t prioritise play
I remember reading once that anything you can do, I can do bleeding. This notion subtly puts down those who don’t menstruate and also promotes the toxic idea that menstruating women should operate the same all month round.
As a result, many of us continue to prove that we can do anything men can do whilst still doing all the F**g things, causing us to burn out and then we wonder why?
Most women I encounter are living out of their masculine because it has become their dominant energy due to years of conditioning and not feeling safe in the feminine.
To me true feminism is not about shaming men, acting like a man or trying to prove anything to anyone.
What are your ?
