Hey my loves! ♥︎

I haven’t posted on here for a while as I am sharing on Instagram daily and write these super long captions on there – but it’s time to reawaken the blog because some topics just need more space! Today I want to talk to you about a very personal subject: periods!

As most of you might know this topic is very close to my heart as I have been struggling with amenorrhea for a while now and still work on getting my period back after having the gynefix copper coil for a few years. The whole healing journey has not only been about detoxing my body and rebalancing my hormones but also about reconnecting to my femininity. I experienced sexual abuse in the past and for me being feminine was subconsciously connected to being (ab)used. After certain traumatic experiences I actually started to completely dissociate from my body and my femininity.

I have been working on untying this and healing this trauma by releasing the painful emotions. The relationship to my body and my femininity has already changed incredibly and I have learned so much in this process. I actually do feel grateful for every chapter of my journey and I know that even (or rather especially) the most challenging experiences have their purpose. It’s part of my mission to turn my pain into medicine for not only myself but others. We can only truly help if we understand suffering – and what I experienced in my life has installed deep empathy and compassion into my being and served as fuel for my mission here…
