This morning I did this without even knowing that the beauty Alisha had posted about this
Have you given your body some love this morning?

As women, we store a lot of our unexpressed emotions in our pelvic bowl. This can manifest in our body as cramps, pain or a longer cycle. ∙
A few months ago I had a profound embodied experience that showed me how much our emotions can affect our cycles. I was nearing the end of my cycle, and had been experiencing cramps for about a week already. We did a somatic anger release exercise, and afterwards my womb space felt like it was pulsating with energy. The next day I woke up bleeding, with absolutely no cramps or pain. I couldn't believe it! The next month, my cycle shortened from 37 days to 29. It was the first cycle I'd ever had that was within the 'normal' range.
Since then, I've been paying more attention to the links between my emotions and my cycle. I was part of a mastermind that pushed me beyond what I though was possible, dismantled a lot of my stories and catalysed so many breakthroughs. During that time my cycle was all over the place. I'm noticing that whenever I have a big breakthrough or release, my cycle gets shorter. When I'm holding on too tightly, whether that's denying my emotions or simply not surrendering to life, my cycle is longer.
If your cycle is long or you're experiencing a lot of pain, try this... Place your hands on your womb, take a few deep breaths and ask yourself, 'What do I need to let go of?' Listen closely. Your womb holds so much wisdom.
Sometimes we don't even need to know what the cause is, we just need to shift the energy. Try a primal scream, a cleansing breath technique like kapalabati, or some hip opening yoga postures. ∙
Have you had a similar experience? I'd love to hear about it!
