Hating your body is a choice that you have been hypnotised into by diet culture.  It's totally unnecessary and feels bad to your soul.  If you've put weight on during menopause or you've always been curvy, you CAN learn to accept your body right now AND you can be healthy at every size.

Changing Your Mind With Hypnotherapy

 

If you want a therapy that works, try hypnotherapy.  Hypnotherapy is becoming one of the worlds most sought after therapies because of its ability to work deep into our conditioning and affect change very quickly.

I call it a no nonsense therapy.  It gets right in there and right out again. 

In today's episode I had the pleasure of talking to a fellow hypnotherapist about the profound work we do.  

Sonia Samtani is CEO of the All About You wellness centre in Hong Kong, she's 2 x TEDX speaker, published author and NLP trainer (and of course, she's a very busy hypnotherapist).

How To Achieve More Embodied Pleasure with Jem Ayres

Thriving Through Menopause with Beth Wright

 

How do we become resilient to the challenges of menopause?  Do we do nothing and let it overtake us or do we actively participate to become more adapted to this challenging phase of our lives?

The most helpful narrative I've come across is to be primed and ready for menopause as much as we can in order to avoid the massive pitfalls of ill health that can occur at this time.

The Changing Landscape of Women's Health with Kath Berry

 

Controlling how you decide to show up in the patriarchal world as a menopausal woman, is really up to you.

You do know that YOU get to decide don't you?  In some countries, that choice is taken away, so if you DO have the choice, honour it and use it wisely.  

Want to stick to bedroom activism instead?  I'm right there with you.
 Want to wear oversized prints, enormous earrings and red lipstick?  Do it.
 Want to have casual sex with someone younger?  Try it.  
 What to just sleep all day this Sunday?  Do it.

This life changing conversation with Kath Berry put some fire back in my belly and I did not expect this conversation to end up where it did!  

Kath Berry is an Acupuncture Educator with over 25 years of clinical experience.  She also has a Masters Degree in Drug and Alcohol Addiction Medicine and is now the co-author of a text book called Menopause: A Comprehensive Guide for Practitioners.

How Menopause Can Help Us Reclaim Our Authenticity

 
Something’s been grinding my gears. I’m starting to take issue with the so called self development world that does more harm than good in some cases.  If you've seen the Amazon Prime Documentary, The Vow, you'll know what I’m referring to.
 
Having been a self confessed self development junkie since I was 14 years old, I'm now starting to see how this influence can do some damage to our authenticity especially when it comes to being able to navigate the menopause transition in a healthy way.  
 
Authenticity says "Hey you...I like you... be more you.... that feeling you're feeling, that's ok... lean into it, listen to it, respect it, honour it, talk about, slow down."Self development says "Hey you... I like you... but you need to be more X....because that feeling you're feeling is holding you back from something much greater.  That feeling is blocking your success and you want more success don't...
