Confidence from simplicity and awareness of self
By Gabriella Guglielminotti Trivel
Life is different for men and women
As women we have so much to offer to the world as mothers, working professionals, friends, wives, innovators, the list goes on, but we should remember first and foremost that we have been living under the patriarchy rules for thousands of years.
What does that mean?
Well, many things indeed and many of them might not be very obvious and straight forward at all!
For instance, we might not notice that in society and in the working environment women are considered as men; good, you might think, but actually it's not good!
Because women are different from men in so many aspects, women operate physically, mentally and emotionally in a very different way which is neither better or worse, just different!
The so much talked about and claimed equality is no good if it entails not considering the differences that make women so unique and valuable.
Women have a different way of seeing life and operating and that includes their approach to business.
What can help a woman in her business?
I would answer that question by saying that the first thing that a woman should be aware of in business is herself and her menstrual cycle.
I can see your eyes goggling and becoming bigger and bigger by the second while you are reading this...
I am serious though, why?
I have been into personal development for decades and for so many years I have studied and looked into different therapies, attended all sorts of workshops and seminars and spent so much of my money on courses trying to improve myself, but I could never nail down what was escaping me. Something was missing.
I discovered what it was in 2009 and since then I have been involved in sharing with women my feminine awareness about the menstrual cycle.
Our menstrual cycle controls our body, mind, emotions and our spirit too.
Don't you think that this might have also a little influence on your business if you don't know how it works?
Your business is run by you and, if you are in a low mood and your body is in a low energy state, your business will suffer and won't flourish. Does this not make sense?
So what's the solution?
Become aware of how you operate as a woman, it is as simple as that!
The cycling life of women
This is a big subject and cannot be fully addressed in a short article, however, I would like to give you few simple tips that you can implement in your life and your business; you can then investigate the subject further and get in contact with me to find out more about it at a later stage, if you so desire.
As a woman every month you go through phases that correspond to the stages of your cycle: the menstrual phase, pre-ovulatory phase, ovulatory phase and pre-menstrual phase. These four phases are similar energetically, mentally, psychologically and physically to the four seasons of the year and how you feel during them.
Winter corresponds to menstruation, Spring corresponds to the pre-ovulatory phase, Summer corresponds to ovulation and Autumn corresponds to the pre-menstrual phase.
Think of how your energy is in these seasons and then think about your menstrual cycle; can you see a similarity?
In winter you are withdrawn and not interested in the outer world.
In spring you tend to have plenty of energy and feel optimistic.
In summer you are out and about, you can multi-task and are happy to be available to everybody.
In autumn you start counting your pennies and see what works and what doesn't, is this not true?
You should keep this information at the forefront of your business if you want it to flourish. Planning according to your 'inner seasons' will help you a great deal. Your life will flow better and you will find yourself thinking: “Why did nobody teach me this in my twenties?” That is what I asked myself in 2009 when I decided to dedicate my life to share this simple message with women around the world.
Action plan for women
This is my suggested action plan for your future:
Track your menstrual cycle and make notes of how you feel throughout the four seasons
Monitor your activities in your private and business life and adjust them accordingly
Review your notes at the end of every cycle and apply any insights to the way you operate
Start again every cycle
Find your inner confidence by going back to your very nature as a woman.
If you want to explore this matter further, as it affects your life so much as a woman, mum, professional, friend, wife, etc. contact me to learn more and book a personal session with me to take your life and your business to the next level.
