Natural menopause – including Journal, CBT Techniques, Workbook and Symptom Cards
Since producing the original course, I have now added the following (detail descriptions of each one below):
Menopause Journal (55 pages)
Menopause Symptoms cards (35)
CBT techniques for Menopause (31 pages)
Menopause Self-care workbook (49 pages)
You have permission to share this course with your family, friends and clients, you cannot however resell this course.
I have written this course specifically, as when I had my menopause at an early age, I did not know what was happening to me. Too often we think menopause only comes around when we are in our 60’s – one can start transitioning in your early 40’s. Having a good mind-set helps – I have found too many women go into a mental decline during their menopause – feeling sorry for themselves. Accept it graciously – with a positive attitude it can be a smooth transition.

Menopause Reiki 1 – 3 (Value $39 / R556)
By Maria Joao Sereno
Menopause is a term used to describe the permanent cessation of the primary functions of the human ovaries: the ripening and release of ova and the release of hormones that cause both the creation of the uterine lining and the subsequent shedding of the uterine lining (a.k.a. the menses or the period). Menopause typically (but not always) occurs in women in midlife, during their late 40s or early 50s, and signals the end of the fertile phase of a woman’s life.
During the menopause transition years, as the body responds to the rapidly fluctuating and dropping levels of natural hormones, a number of effects may appear. Not every woman experiences bothersome levels of these effects; the range of effects and the degree to which they appear is very variable from person to person.
Menopause Reiki will help you with
Relief all symptoms of menopause:
Sense of loss
Joint pain or muscle pain
Womb Care (Value $17.99 / R257)
By Maria Windsong Couture
Womb Care from Mariah (Men receive to activate for the woman in your life)
If you are a man, you may want to be attuned so that you can activate these energies for a woman in your life who wants more healing on all levels. An attunement is a dose of energy frequencies that ‘match’ the energy of this energy system in general, and each function or attunement specifically.
Once you have received that dose of energy, your body and spirit will recognize that energy and easily access the energy stream from Eternal Sacred Source that IS the energy stream of this particular energy system.
Womb Care™ is a comprehensive energy system that brings you the CARE of all
responsive eternal beings whose specialty it is to attend to the healing and wholeness of your body’s reproductive system – it attends to all the organs and body parts that make up your reproductive system below your belly button. Womb Care™ includes the energies of Cramp Pain Release for your monthly ease and comfort.
Womb Care™ also assists to bring your womb’s energy into wholeness. There are women who have had miscarriages, or simply feel the emptiness of having never carried a baby in their womb. Others have had their uterus and or ovaries removed by surgery. It is vitally important to bring the ethereal energy of your womb into wholeness by reclaiming the spiritual energy of your womb.
Bold Warrior Goddess Within (Value $25 / R375)
This system embodies the energies of many Warrior Goddesses so that when we are feeling overwhelmed in our lives we can call on the energies of this system to Find that Bold Warrior Goddess within to clear the path ahead and restore harmony, inner balance and peace within us – while empowering us to move ahead fearlessly. We can also evoke these powerful Goddesses for Protection.
GODDESS ATHENA, BRIGID, MACHA, ANDRASTE, MORRIGAN AND FREYA ARE THE WARRIOR GODDESS TEAM
Would you like to heal the attacks of feeling overwhelmed in life? If so, you have chosen the right healing system. In our life of hustling and bustling lifestyle of today we seem to suffer with periods of feeling simply overwhelmed and or defeated in our lives.
If we do not do something in those moments, then we find ourselves simply dying on the inside. The stress, anxiety, and feelings of hopelessness and overwhelm just eat away at us affecting all levels of our being. We lose ourselves in this cycle of mayhem and lose our personal will, strength, power and sense of self and sometimes it gets so bad that it can affect our physical health.
Thus, we are provided with this healing system so that the energies of this system can serve to reawaken the Bold Warrior Goddess within who is perilous and can accomplish any task big or small. The energies will reconnect us with our inner sense of direction and guidance. Then we connect to the truth of unlimited possibilities and potentials – and anything is possible. We can do anything we desire – all we have to do is put our minds to it and so it is done.
As we connect with the Bold Warrior Goddess aspect of our inner being we are able to get out of all the mental clutter and chaos in our minds and get in touch with our emotions – the realm of the heart (the heart chakra) – and get in touch with our Warrior Self aspect – the aspect of ourselves that can meet any challenge life puts on our path. We forget how much personal power we really have right inside us,
We sometimes forget about this Warrior aspect of ourselves and so these powerful Goddess energies blended together remind us – help us remember our true and courageous selves! We can then find the comfort of their protection in the midst of all of the chaos of hustling and bustling.
This system has a Spiritual Cleansing method that can be used for shielding and protection as well as assistance when we are overwhelmed plus much more.
Just to let you know that I worked through the manuals and that I am ready to take the attunements.
Em, this course is just a WOW…
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. This is something that each and every woman should read through.
That ABC’s is still the best I came across and I thoroughly enjoyed it. And so all the other modules too – E from Tsitsikamma, South Africa
Emma, I have been having these symptoms and never in a million years thought it could be early menopause – I even thought I was actually dying at some point. Armed with this info I made an appointment withy my gynae – and lo and behold, the tests show that I am going through an early menopause – I cannot thank you enough – Jane, Boulder, Colorado
Hi Emma, This is a great product – very thorough! I am currently going through this and love having such a great resource for natural information available – what a great value. 🙂 April, Canada
This is amazing! I’m 50 in three months, yikes! and this is going to be so helpful! It is over 230 pages of research and information – I’ve skimmed it and can’t wait to dig into the detail more. Michelle, USA
I didn’t realize this was over 230 pages. What a font of information! I’ve been learning about perimenopause recently. Looking forward to learning a lot more through these pages. Thank you for providing this much-needed information. Gentle Joyful Journals, Sakura, Japan
