Womb Whispers

Let’s be honest: As a woman or menstruating person in this society, it isn’t exactly easy to grow up with a lot of reverence for your body, nor your cycle. In this spiritual-feminist podcast about menstrual wisdom and activism for our modern times, I share musings, reflections and conversations to make living as a cyclical being (ALL beings are cyclical, by the way!) in a world set up for linear progress more easeful for you. Let yourself be inspired to detox from the systems of oppression you’ve most probably internalised, so you can walk the spirals of your life with more confidence and trust in yourself and your gorgeous body and reclaim the superpower and ancient wisdom already stored in your bones! And no, you don’t need to have a uterus to benefit from this!

The reason why it feels so hard to rest


Winter is a time to rest and digest and allow the natural composting to happen – in Nature and in your psyche. But why does resting often feel like the hardest thing to do? Today I unravel societal and personal layers that prevent deep, delicious rest.

Winter is a time to pause and reflect and allow the natural composting to happen – in Nature and in your subconscious. But why can it sometimes feel so uncomfortable to rest? Rest is a Revolution, especially in this day and age, where we easily skip this important and inherent part of a regenerative cycle. Follow me as I unravel the societal and personal layers and narratives that may prevent you from enjoying the deep, delicious rest you crave. I dive into: - Why rest doesn't feel safe to your nervous system - The productive side of rest - Why rest needs to be your fuel, not a reward - Resources to help you rest more easily and deeply - The 7 types of rest according to Dr. Dalton-Smith Resources I mentioned: Book your Complimentary Consultation with me here: https://lisa-jara.as.me Or have a look at my program "Happy Healthy Period": https://lisa-jara.com/en/happy-healthy-period Podcast Episodes: How I dismantle extraction culture in myself: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/a-personal-example-of-how-i-dismantle/id1650282292?i=1000624894007 Are you stuck in the Paradise Lie? https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/are-you-stuck-in-the-paradise-lie/id1650282292?i=1000636549509 How to Decolonize Time: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/how-to-decolonize-time/id1650282292?i=1000628053603 Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith and her 7 types of rest: https://www.drdaltonsmith.com Do you want to start your week with some soul-infused musings that support you in your personal cyclical experience in a world set up for linear progress?
