If you believe sex and sensuality are over and a thing of youth, think again!
Menopause is not the end, but the beginning.
It is the beginning of the most sexual, sensual, expressed, and powerful time in a woman’s life.
What was that?!
Isn’t it a time when our ovaries retire and our world recedes into loving grand-children and baking cookies for Bingo?
Thankfully, that is not the truth!
Menopause is our initiation into the power stage of our life. This doesn’t mean we suddenly gain power and rule over the world, but it does mean we are invited to claim our full sovereignty, and yes, sensuality!
What is in your way of being the most alive, juicy, pleasure-full woman now?
For the most part, it’s you.
You would believe yourself insane if the way in which you regard yourself and what you believe to be true didn’t fully realize itself.
So, how do you regard yourself? Do you see yourself as old? Drying up? Unsexy? Undesirable? Because if you do, this will be what you ‘act as true’ in your life.
What would happen to your reality if you suddenly chose to regard yourself as beautiful? Juicy and vibrant? Full of pleasure yet to be explored and experienced? Notice how those statements feel in your body.
If you don’t have the best self-image and deepest self-love, its not your fault!!! There is a multi-billion dollar industry which shameless publishes ‘studies’ that ‘prove’ that menopause is a ‘disease’, causing us to age and become sexless, thus, convincing us we need their drugs in order to be healthy.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
In order to more fully comprehend this radical shift of perspective, we must first be willing to die to a few ideas we believe to be truths:
Lie #1: Ovaries stop working after menopause.
Fact: Ovaries of healthy women continue to function for the duration of their life!
Lie #2: Estrogen levels go down with menopause, thus, we must take hormones to supplement our body.
Fact: With all the toxins and poisons we are exposed to on a regular basis (as well as the ones we consciously ingest) contribute to over-loading our Liver. When our Liver no longer properly regulates our estrogen levels, we can actually end up with too much estrogen!
Lie #3: Our ovaries are our only source of estrogen & progesterone.
Fact: Actually, along with our ovaries, our adrenal glands and body fat also produce these hormones.
Lie #4: Hot flashes are due to estrogen deficiency and are relieved by hormone therapy.
Fact: Hot flashes are more closely related to life-style choices than to estrogen levels. They actually occur at any age and funnily, do not exist in women who live away from pollution, who eat a diet of whole foods, and who exercise regularly.
Lie #5: Vaginal Dryness is due to insufficient estrogen and caused by menopause.
Fact: Dryness can occur at any time in a woman’s life and is not directly related to an estrogen problem. The more active women are sexually, the less prone to dryness they are. “If you don’t use it, you lose it”
So does that all mean? It means GREAT NEWS!!!
Menopause is a time when ‘enough is enough.’
For one, if we have spent most of our life abusing our body and not providing her with the best food, rest, and exercise, then now is not too late to start! What could you do today towards delighting in your body?
If we have ignored or dishonored our emotions for the majority of our life, they will definitely make their presence known, if not consciously, then unconsciously through the creation of a ‘dis-ease’ or injury or ‘dis-function’.
Menopause offers us the chance to review our lives and make new, powerful, juicy choices that will not only honor our deepest truth, but fully express them shamelessly.
If we have never claimed our passion, we will be invited to do so lest we start to dry up and die to the Mystery of Life itself.
What makes you purr from the inside out?
What have you always longed for and have’t yet said yes to?
The more we activate our passion, the more pleasure we will feel, and the more pleasure we feel, the more healthy and gorgeous we become.
