Period cramps and pains are here to tell you all about how you really feel about being a female. If pain is due to endometriosis, fibroids, or other female conditions, the meaning will be slightly different but whenever there's physical pain, you know there is suppressed anger.
What patterns are at the root of period pains?
rejecting parts of being a female (what about being a female makes you feel disempowered, helpless, resentful?)
a buildup of anger form all those unresolved arguments you had this month (notice the more challenged as a female you feel during the month, the more painful the period cramps are)
ancestral trauma regarding femininity and womanhood (especially anger towards men: domestic abuse, patriarchy, suppression)
felling you need to be punished for being a woman (what societal, cultural, or religious dogma makes you feel you deserve to be punished?)
Explore how your female ancestors felt about menstruating, In some cultures, period blood is considered impure, evil, bad, and women were treated "accordingly". In today's business hustle culture menstruation is considered a hindrance- how do you feel about it? Period symptoms can often become an unconscious excuse to lash out, cry, and finally eat without restrictions.
Why do you have to have everything under control?
Why can't you loosen up your restrictions?
How do your period pains make you emotionally feel?
If period cramps could talk, what would they say to you?
Have you noticed a pattern between the stress you feel in any given month and the period pain you experience?
