I’ve recently started reading a book called “The Untethered Soul, the journey beyond yourself”, by Michael A. Singer.  It’s not a book to be devoured and read from front to back in one sitting but read slowly, contemplated and savoured.  The author asks over and over …. “who are you”?….Good question hey.  When asked that question our response is commonly where we come from, what we do, who our family is or what we’ve achieved but really none of this is truly who we are.

So this got me thinking in particular about an area close to my heart; perimenopause and the journey we as women are navigating through as we transition through the sacred passage of womanhood into becoming the “crone”.  I don’t speak for everyone but can speak from the heart in regards to answering that golden question of “who are you” in relation to perimenopause as often during this time what we perceive as identity is challenged.

Our bodies are changing, our roles are changing and we begin to question more intensely who we are and what we want.

Let’s look at the layering aspects of this:

Emotional – sadness, strain on relationships, anger, confusion and self loathing to name a few

Physical – fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, bloating, decreased libido, hair loss and skin changes

So what can we do and how can we change this?

Everyone is unique and their treatment approach is reflective of this.  If this is something you can relate to or would like to learn more about this is an area I’m very passionate about and can help.  Remember you are not alone and often we find more answers in a collective approach x
