My Cycle Superpowers Awakening
I worked for 18 years in a corporate environment before I realised I had Cycle Superpowers.
As a marketing manager, one of my responsibilities was to create sales tools for the customer-facing teams.
The tools I developed were creative, daring and achieved cut-through in a highly competitive, conservative industry.
A curious customer once asked me how I came up with such imaginative ideas and for the first time, I realised something profound.
I’d be bleeding heavily, usually with a migraine and throwing up in the work toilets, all the while pretending I was just one of the boys and not at all affected by inconvenient women’s business!
Fast forward 5 years and I deeply honour my bleeding now – acknowledging it’s my most creative time.
When my blood is flowing and I’m physically exhausted, inspiration storms through me. It’s all I can do to keep up – I try and record the ideas in my journal, but when writing is too slow, I record wild videos on my phone.
As I come out of my inner world and my energy becomes more outward a week later, I start to decipher my journal and videos. Every single time, I’m completely blown away by their brilliance… and a bit overwhelmed by the courage needed to implement them!
But here I am, stepping into my Wonder Woman shoes and presenting one of those bold ideas – The Cycles Calendar.
You see, when I started to understand my cycle, I realised I had different superpowers depending on where I was in my cycle.
While I wanted to share this calendar with every menstruator on the planet, I wanted to particularly reach the woman completely unaware that her menstrual cycle is actually a career superpower.
So if that’s you, such a big welcome to the Cycles Calendar, High Achiever!
Every day, there is the invitation to ask yourself 4 questions to complete the Daily Check-in. Think of the first feeling word/s that come to mind and record it, no matter how unusual the word is.
Try and write down something every day (your future self already thanks you!), but if you can’t, just pick it up again the following day.
You don’t need to know what day of your cycle you are to start – you can start right away and work backwards once your period arrives and you know your Day 1. (Note: Some women spot with brown blood a couple days before, but Day 1 is the first day you see red blood and the blood really starts to flow.)
In the Cycles Calendar, I’ve shared 12 of my cycle superpowers as inspiration during the different phases, but please write down whatever resonates – your superpower is unique.
Like the moon, you predictably wax and wane every single cycle, and your superpowers show up in a consistent pattern completely unique to you.
Speaking of the moon, while the menstrual cycle influences the most how we feel, the lunar cycle and seasonal cycle holds us too. The lunar cycle is powerful for all people to connect to and holds a subtle magic, even if you’re not menstruating.
As with previous calendars, there is an opportunity to track your lunar intentions on the dark, new and full moon, plus the opportunity to share these intentions over on Instagram.
I wonder… what will you create when you harness your energy and use your unique menstrual superpowers every day?
How will you change your world this year? I can’t wait to find out!
