But it hasn’t been without a cost. Women experience far higher stress levels when they try and work the masculine model. Actually, we are different in our productivity and creativity styles.
Let me explain…
Truth is, our hormonal system gives us a perfect blueprint to build an optimized schedule.
For instance, have you noticed that you’re more relaxed and detailed oriented during certain times of the month, and very high-energy and eager to learn new things during certain others?
Like the seasons of the year, we too go through four seasons in every 28 day moon cycle and each season brings with it certain gifts.
Let’s take our current season, autumn for example. This season is all about organizing, setting boundaries and moving from the expansive nature of summer to the contractive, introspective nature of autumn. It’s a great time to begin projects that focus more on the internal – cultivating mind, body and spirit through introspection.
In exactly the same way, we go through the same four seasons in the month and each season guides us through different activities and energies.
As we align with these energies, we get more done in less time and with less effort.
Let me ask you: which season in your moon cycle are you in? Spring, summer, autumn or winter? Some indicators are: your energy levels, food cravings, tendency to do certain types of tasks, desire to be alone or around others etc.

Isn’t it ironic that we trust nature to know what it is doing: we are infinitely provided for: the furniture in our homes, the food on our plates, everything we need. Yet when it comes to our own natural rhythms and cycles, we remain unsure, unable to fully own the wisdom and intelligence in our body, mind and heart.
Let’s change all that. Are you with me?
