Sister Roots » Beyond me. Becoming we.

Dreams into realities, a picture I like to paint. As I pay more attention I see this happening all around me. It’s easy to keep wanting and buying and dreaming the next dream, but how often are we reflecting on the once upon a dream that has become a reality? The moment may come and pass so quickly, that the appreciation for our dream – come to life – passes along with it. So here I am, reflecting on a dream that turned into a reality for me.

The average woman bleeds for 3,000 days over her lifetime. 

How’s this reframe?

The average woman is blessed with 3,000 days of release, of physically letting go.

 

Can you imagine referring to your cycle each month with #blessed?

Here at Sister Roots we’re *flowing* in that direction 🙂

We are passionate about understanding our monthly cycles biologically, emotionally and spiritually. Each day

 of the month we have an opportunity to tap into and use the energy our bodies and cycles provide us with.

 

This is a wonderful article from THINX breaking down the biology of bleeding. It’s a starting point and a great one at that! Visit it here. 

Although this article refers to the experience of bleeding as a woman, understanding that our feminine energy is inherently cyclic allows for exploration and expression for all self-identified women.

 

Together the SR (Sister Roots) team has been diving deeper into this work, paying attention to our cycles, noticing patterns, understanding where our energy is, and discovering what we need in any given moment throughout. We ask each other about where we’re at in our cycles to get an understanding of how we can best support one another. We are learning how to work with our bodies and with our nature, rather than against them. Because in doing so, we tap the well of our limitless creativity, gentle strength, and childlike joy.

 

 

If after reading the THINX article you are eager for more, check out the Cycles + Sex resource zine. Cycles + Sex is “a movement to educate and celebrate the interconnectedness of our menstrual, hormonal, and reproductive and sexual health.” Their conference, Podcast, Instagram, and work in general is e.p.i.c.
