Weather… cycles. Contractions and expansions and allowing that flow… and simple tips to help you with your menstrual cramps!(there’s always a link!)

I filmed it with the stunning backdrop of trees and lakes up at Kripalu. Just in the nick of time to catch the train back home!

  1. Dear Laura,

    this is a loving actionship!

    I find this motivating, to reconciliate with the uterus in the midst of pain and accompany with gentleness on the full body and emotional clean up process.

    Thank you!

    this is so perfect. all the women at work are on the same cycle! you’re action ships are always so well timed. I love you!

    • OMG, totally!!!! ALL my friends are here too! Or just finishing. And everyone seems to have experienced more than normal cramps this month. And I hear there’s some ‘interesting happenings’ in the world around female reproductive systems too. Enjoy the flush out :) Love xo

    Ah, so refreshing to hear a woman talk about thanking her uterus for having a period. I will definitely start doing that more. Im not on mine at the moment but I can already feel it shifting in my body just from watching your video. I can always feel something good happening after I watch your videos :)

    I have a history of crampiness around my period but thanks to lots of BodyTalk and shifting my perspective and letting go of my story of having bad cramps I have been able to feel a big difference. I can feel the change happening inside my body and it’s so cool to really feel that my intention of wanting change is so connected to what I feel happening in my body.

    Thanks do much for this action ship. It is so relevant and perfect as always.

    Lots of love

    hi Laura, i loved what you said about the emotional clean up.
    i make little marks on my wall calendar where i mark the day i am expecting my period and so i also make a mental note that unexpected troubling emotions may come up the week before. i do this so i can remember that these emotions are really sprouting because my period is coming, and not really for the reasons i believe.
    i also warn my boyfriend… he’s very understanding about all of this.

    thanks a lot for this action ship!

    very useful. it pays to imagine it as something “cleansing” rather than “cursing” x

    Thanks so much. Simple and oh so DEEP! Being fairly close to menopause (52 years young) I have a perspective to share. Embrace the emotional aspect that the shift in hormones bring. They say that the emotions held in the body will come hurdling out in the last stages of flowing and I find this to be oh so true. Some filter or censor I use to have is gone. Pity to those around me, but it feels more than wonderful to me. One last comment is that I think this kind of dialogue needs more time and attention.

    Thanks again and blessings to you.

    Hi Laura,
    I really appreciate this video and will pass it on to my nieces. Even though one doesn’t have periods anymore (like me :)) this action ship can be used to release anything which needs releasing. I used it this morning to help release some kind of `stuck`in the left side of my pelvis and am still carrying that image of not only my muscles but my bones moving like a sponge.
    Un grand merci,

    Hi Laura,

    I loved this video (and all your videos). I did the bone squishing technique several times on the first day of my period, and, in conjunction with expressing gratitude to my uterus, it helped a lot with my usual cramps. It also gave me another very real reason to feel grateful for the cleansing cycle we are blessed with.

    Thank you! You are great!

    You are amazing. It’s funny, I didn’t watch this video until my period came (today) and then I HAD to watch it because I was having such intense cramps….so nice to be reminding of what’s actually going on :) Uteruses unite! Thanks so much for this one :) xoxo
