I’m not going to lie – I have been off of my regular steam schedule for months now.  Back in February, I had a major life transition when my beloved cat, Honey, passed away.  Shortly after, my husband arrived home with our new puppy, Gertie, and I made the decision to move back to the city!  While all of this was happening, I was also undergoing a major rebranding for my business! 

Yoni steaming took a back seat – and we all know, just like the gym, once you get off your routine it can sometimes be really challenging to re-establish it!

And boy – can I feel the effects of 4 or 5 months of not being consistent with my regular steam regime!!  For the past few years, I would consistently steam – three days after my menses finished and then another three days in a row later in my cycle – and I would hit my PMS phase, the Luteal phase, happy and breezy and simply carrying on with life, being in flow!

This month, however, was a different story ALTOGETHER and one that I care not to repeat!!! My cycle day 23 was a day from hell … in fact, I felt like a little demon! Rushes of irritability.  A poor attitude toward life.  A struggle to feel gratitude.  I just wanted to be alone and to be left alone.  Any of this sound familiar?

This is not who I am and this is not who I want to be!!!

Especially not when I’ve experienced the flow, ease, and lightness of other premenstrual times when I’ve been steaming regularly. 

Now I am on cycle day 25 and feeling much better. 

During this early morning contemplation, I realize that it is all about circulation and flow.  It seems that all good health practices come back to this principle – and yoni steaming is no different.

Think of yoga, acupuncture, Qigong, and cardio exercise – these practices all increase blood or energy circulation and open channels to create health and homeostasis in the body.

The warm steam of yoni steaming may help to create circulation in the reproductive system, which I believe creates a happy circulation and flow of our hormones.  Less stagnation (physical and otherwise) results not only in easier periods but for me, for SURE, it results in a MUCH happier PMS phase. 

So, as I wait for my next monthly bleed to begin, I am challenging myself to get back into my regular steam regime next month – and putting it out there in this blog post to increase my commitment!!!

Blessings to you as you remember your strength, beauty, and inner light.
