Has your libido disappeared? Sexual desire loss can be a common complaint during menopause. Our hormones that trigger our sex drive to fertilize our ripe eggs are dwindling. We are moving from our role of birthing babies into the role of caretaker of all the children of the Universe. We are still very sexual, but only when we want to be. Now, we determine who, when, where, and what excites us and turns us on!
Research has shown that decreased libido is not caused by a drop in hormones alone. The relationship we have with self, life, and our sexual partner greatly impacts our libido. Our love of life, who we are, and what we are passionate about will ignite the fire within us. Being in a nurturing relationship where we are respected, appreciated, and adored for who we are is a vital piece to fire up sexual interest. Our decreasing sex hormones need our thought process to spark the flame. This is part of the menopause journey. It is time to redefine who we are as powerful, passionate women who can impact the quality of life for all humanity on this planet. We have played small for too long. It is time to re-prioritize our life. It is time to fall in love with all of life and to play big. When we embrace our feminine power, own our sexuality, trust our inner wisdom, see beauty in ourselves as older women, and love who we have become, our sexual juices will flow.
Our sexual energy is our life force energy. Often a fading sex drive is an indication that what we are doing with our life is not feeding our needs. A loss of sex drive is stagnant life force energy. Energy follows thought. What do you need to change in your life to be passionate about who you are and what you are doing with your life? Are you in a dead-end relationship? Do you see yourself as sexual? Do you have a purpose in life that is bigger than you are? Are you passionate about making a difference in the world? Do you love the woman you are? This is your time to follow your dreams, to speak your truth, and to use your life force energy to heal yourself and the world.
If you are in love with your life and you have supportive relationships and your libido has disappeared, have your hormones checked. According to Dr. Christiane Northrup, the hormones progesterone and/or estrogen, and testosterone in that order behind relationship issues with self and life can cause a decline in the sex drive.
