For some women, making lifestyle changes is enough to help them find PMS relief. But for others, it takes more. It requires looking into the emotional aspects of oneself, as well as understanding and resolving the root causes of certain persistent, long-standing emotional issues.
In many situations, this root cause is the result of some kind of inner conflict. It may involve anxiety about the future, regret about the past, unresolved relationship issues, or unfulfilled desires and expectations.
This conflict may have been with you for a long time, shaped by your experiences growing up and the belief systems you’ve developed as a result of these experiences. And some external event may have triggered this conflict and brought it back into focus – keeping you awake and restless at night, or feeling depressed, angry or anxious, particularly during the premenstrual time.
To open the door to a balanced physical and mental state and a harmonious menstrual cycle, you need to find a way to resolve this inner conflict. It’s not an easy task, and that’s why many people choose to suffer through it their entire life, rather than face it.
It takes courage to be honest with yourself, curiosity to explore the unknown and the uncomfortable, compassion to love yourself as a whole (the good and the bad), and patience to allow the healing process to unfold at its own pace.
It’s worth it, though. To become whole and live a truly happy, healthy and fulfilled life, you can’t escape this step. And I believe you have whatever you need inside of you to do just that, because you’ve already walked so far on this journey…
Today, I encourage you to begin to explore your inner conflict and bring it to light. So the sun may shine on it and transform it into radiant energy for healing and growth.
Write a journal entry about your inner conflict, or conflicts. You may not have any idea right now. Just open a blank page and write down the title, “My Inner Conflict.” Let it come to you. It may take days or weeks to find it. So be it. Allow it to talk to you in any shape or form, and in its own way and time.
You might consider writing with your non-dominant hand. I find it helpful to get out of my head and let my intuition speak to me.
Be open and embrace the discoveries. We’re here to support you!
