Whenever something goes wrong in our body, there is always a deeper reason for hiding in our body and waiting to be found. To be more precise, it is actually hiding in our mind, heart, and soul. When our femininity breaks, we can experience a female disease. Female diseases have a metaphysical or spiritual meaning that can give us amazing insights and understanding of how to treat it and how to prevent it. Our bodies’ ailments are indicators of what is happening with us emotionally, mentally, and psychologically. We only need to learn to pay attention and listen.
When our femininity breaks, we can experience a female disease.
Why To Look Into Spiritual Causes of Disease?
Certainly, looking up a spiritual cause behind female diseases is a wiser approach because it gives us a deeper and clearer perspective on what is happening with us and what to do about it. In addition, once we understand it we are able to heal ourselves naturally, without any aggressive or invasive procedures and methods, artificial medications, and unnecessary surgeries. In some cases, we are able to stop it from happening again at all and never have the same issue in the future.
I have gathered a list of common female diseases, their causes, and ways to address them. I hope you find something that will help you resolve your own health problem. But I also really hope that nothing here relates to you and you actually do not need this information for yourself.
In general, any female problems are always a denial of the self on some level and rejection of the feminine aspects within.
♡ A great affirmation to turn it around is this:
I rejoice in the feminine. I love being a woman and I love my body.
Common Female Diseases and Their Spiritual Causes
I have divided female diseases into general groups by health and was able to add some affirmations here and there. If you are needing affirmation for the rest of them, I invite you to get creative and come up with your own. Usually, it would be the opposite of the issue you have and something positive and uplifting.
Breast represents mothering, nurturing and loving, expression of kindness, and care. It is located where our Anahata, or heart chakra is, so it is directly connected to anything that Anahata chakra is responsible for. Health issues with breast mean either the need for, lack of or provision of care and nurturing.
Breast cancer. Taking on a persona that we feel was thrust upon us by others or by negative life experiences. A belief that how we treat ourselves and others is nurturing, when it is not. Nursing grudges (resentment). Feeling unloved or unlovable. Needing to mother or be mothered. Living with the constant threat of someone’s emotional abuse, feeling responsible for it when it happens, and feeling unable to stand up for self. Appreciating self for saying, “No” to an abuser, yet still wanting the abuser to somehow magically change into a good person (control). Longing to be loved and appreciated, craving positive attention.

Hormones represent our ability to regulate our emotional reactions to challenging life experiences.
Hormonal imbalance. Unable or unwilling to adapt to changes that are seemingly out of our control.
Menstrual Cycle Health
Any menstrual imbalance represents the rejection of one’s femininity. It is about guilt or feeling “dirty”.
The menstrual cycle can represent recognition of our limitations or can signify the start of a new cycle, a new way of life, or a new opportunity. It can also indicate a pattern of fighting any change suggested by others, a refusal to go with the flow, or a tendency to argue just for the sake of being disagreeable. The cycle can be a guaranteed week or two every month when we can blame our body instead of admitting that we have needs. Like the flu and menopause, this process is often used as an excuse to under-perform or to be mean.
Those who have painful cycles may have a victim mentality. Pain, discomfort, and other effects can be reduced, or even eliminated, by not allowing oneself the luxury of using this as an excuse. After all, the Universe always cooperates with our desires. Some say they have painful cycles even if they do not. This results from a desire to play on the sympathies of others or to escape responsibilities.
Menstrual cycle problems (any). Rejection of one’s femininity. Guilt, fear. The belief that the genitals are sinful or dirty.
Amenorrhea. If not caused by pregnancy, breastfeeding or menopause: deep and possibly unrecognized fear of any or all of the following: being an adult with responsibilities, being a female adult, attracting sexual attention, becoming pregnant, giving birth, becoming a parent. Not wanting to be a woman. Dislike of the self.
More On Menstrual Cycle Health
Dysmenorrhea. Anger at the self. Hatred of the body or of women.
Menorrhagia. Results from a legacy family pattern of cyclic emotional or physical abuse toward the family’s female members or children. This creates an unrecognized belief that life as a woman is all about suffering, with the body cooperating with the expectation.
Metrorrhagia. Results from a legacy family pattern of cyclic, predictable, emotional, or physical violence toward the family’s female members or children.
Missed periods. A period that is missed can be caused by pregnancy or breast-feeding, eating disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome, pelvic inflammatory disease (inner turmoil regarding one’s creativity or choice of whether to have children), uterine fibroids, or premature ovarian failure (belief or fear that “God hates me because I have done nothing meaningful in my life” or an “I give up” attitude).
Premenstrual syndrome. For some, the monthly cycle is a reminder of all that is wrong in their life. The weight of such a concern manifests as an increased emotional burden which in turn creates physical discomfort. Allowing confusion to reign. Giving power to outside influences. Rejection of the feminine processes.
♡ Affirmation for PMS:
I am in control of my life.
And I am a powerful and dynamic woman and my body works perfectly.
I love myself.
Uterine fibroids. Represent stifled creativity along with a desire for a life-changing experience.
♡ Affirmations for menstrual problems in general:
I accept my female power.
And I accept all my bodily processes as a natural part of life.
I love and approve of myself.
Miscarriage. It represents an end to a developmental phase. It can be caused by fetal or maternal health conditions. Fear of the future. Inappropriate timing.
Morning sickness. Worry over trying to anticipate all of the issues that may or will come up with the birth of the baby.
Frigidity. Fear. Denial of pleasure. A belief that sex is bad. Insensitive partners. Fear of father.
Disease Is Information
As we can see, most if not all of the female diseases are about lack of self-love, self-worth, and denial of our own feminine and female nature. Oftentimes a woman can enjoy being a woman and love herself and her female body but still have female diseases. This means there are more deeply rooted and subconscious beliefs and fears that need to be heald and recognized.
Whenever we get sick it is not the time to blame our beautiful bodies for malfunctioning. On the opposite, it is the time to pay more attention to ourselves, take a break, contemplate and nourish ourselves with extra love and care. As in most cases, female diseases show us that we forgot about ourselves and who we are.
I encourage you to deeply meditate over every ailment and its spiritual cause if you have one and do more research about what else can be done.
Shower yourself with love and gratitude every single day.
Claudia Richard says
Wow, this was a powerful article for me. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016. I called a holistic practitioner (a friend of mine that I had known for 30 years). When I told him about the breast cancer, his first words were: “Who has been blocking your femininity?” I was stunned, while also knowing that the answer to his question was: my husband. My cheating, abusive, narcissistic husband. I have no doubt whatsoever that the events (and stress) in my marriage caused my breast cancer. My friend told me to love my tumor, to make it my best friend as it was trying to teach me something about my life, if I would listen. Amazing. My cancer story is longer and quite interesting, but I will leave it here for now. Thank you.
Ksenia Sita says
Thank you for sharing your story, Claudia. Our bodies are truly amazing and so very wise. <3
How are you today Claudia?
I offer thanksgiving for this article. I am so glad to have found this blog as I have prayed for wisdom to manifest itself. Mine manifested as endometriosis and fibroids and reading this article felt like someone was reading my situation like a book.
The person I was in a relationship with has friends who disliked and were jealous of our relationship and he often channeled their thoughts to me. They never wanted the relationship to succeed especially after he and I went into business together and began to flourish. After a while, his attitude towards me changed and he began living his friends’ thoughts. He also cheated a lot and it was during these moments that I noticed that I had unusual heavy flow. I even had surgery and he was not there to support me emotionally. They urged him not to have kids and I am thankful that we did not.
I felt unappreciated, unloved. I also had chronic vaginal yeast infections. It was not until I emotionally let go, that the yeast infections stopped. It was like magic. I emotionally moved on and I am yet to have a yeast infection.
My periods felt better and even though I am still being treated for fibroids due to blood loss, I have noticed a great change after I emotionally moved on. I simply had no idea that fears and unrecognized conditions were the birth of my sufferings. Now, he wants me back in his life, but I said NO.
I gave my femininity away too soon and began a cycle of defeat. Thank God for healing.
Now that I have the knowledge, I vow to work on my inner self.
Thank you for writing this.
Ksenia Sita says
Hello! Thank you so much for such a great comment. It is truly amazing how our bodies work and how they can talk to us, if only we know to listen. I am sorry you had this experience with relationships, it looks like you have exited it as a winner. And knowledge is power for sure 🙂 I hope your journey to health will continue and be successful! <3
What amazing information. I´m also sooo glad to have found your blog dear Ksenia. 🙂
Do you know if east literature says anything about the specific moon a woman gets her period?
When it comes too often in the waning moon, for example, would it mean something?
Ksenia Sita says
Hi Marilia! Thank you for your kind words, I am very happy you enjoy it here. <3
Your question is very interesting. There is a book that you might enjoy reading, it is called "Red Moon" by Miranda Gray. It gave me very deep revelations. We can bleed on various Moons, and there is a certain meaning there for sure. According to Miranda, there are Red Moon and White Moon. Yours is White one and here is what it means:
“White Moon” bleeding, or menstruating with the new moon and ovulating with the full moon.
White Moon: If your body follows a White Moon cycle, you’ll tend to bleed during the new or waning moon. Since biodynamics have shown that the earth is most fertile during full moons (when you ovulate), this cycle is most traditionally linked to fertility and motherhood. If you are a “White Moon” woman, you’ll likely feel a surge in your intuition during your period, and will feel the urge to withdraw for nourishment and self-renewal. In other words, you’re tapped out energetically and have given the month your all—it’s “you” time.
Hello and congratulations for this great website! I was wanting to know, what is your opinion about breast implants? Take care.
Ksenia Sita says
Hello Marina! Thank you for your kind words. I am not into breast implants.
Maybe breast implants might have to do with looking towards material resources for nurture instead of living sources of nurture?
Not trusting the world to support? Creating ‘pseudo’ supports instead?
It’s an interesting question.
Ksenia Sita says
That is an interesting question, and you gave interesting versions of the answer for sure 🙂 In general, the desire to change or “improve” the body artificially usually comes from the lack of self-love and understanding of your own nature. There is a belief that you need to be better to feel better, but why?
Thank you for your post. I was looking for some info about BV and the spiritual cause(s). I spontaneously decided to get married with someone I just met even though I had said that I would never get married. I developed BV one month after we met, and it stayed with me for the course of our marriage, about 4.5 years. I had tried almost everything, but this past August, I decided to separate from him, & lo and behold, no more BV. I’m wondering what my specific negative belief was. Maybe I’d felt I was betraying myself for getting married? Maybe it was my body signaling to me that this person was not meant for me?
It continues to fascinate me, especially now that I see one of my friends going through the same thing, except she’s more Western-medicine-minded, but I also suspect that this partner is not meant for her. Another example is my cousin who was dating this person who really used & mistreated her, and she had gotten BV while with him. I haven’t followed up to see if she still experiences BV or not, but it would be interesting if the answer was no. Anyway, thanks again for this post.
All the best,
Ksenia Sita says
Hello Krystal. Thank you for sharing your story. Yes, you are absolutely right. Our bodies talk to us all of the time and try giving us all kinds of hints and signs. It is truly fascinating, I keep being amazed by it myself. <3
Jan Chamberlin says
This information has been very helpful, thank you.
I have lichen sclerosis and lichen planus in my labia area (think that’s what the area is called, inside the lips)
It is very painful and not curable but can be managed. At present mine is extreme.
I know that everything has an emotional cause but with meditation it is not coming to me.
Can you give me an indication? Thank you. Jan
Ksenia Sita says
Hello Jan! I’m glad it was helpful to you. Our actual mouth and lips as part of it directly connected to our other “mouth” – vagina and labia. Usually, what is happening in the lower part on that area is a body’s attempt to express something that was not expressed with your actual mouth. So think of what it can be. Anything you are afraid to say? Anything you want to say that you are not saying? Something that you’ve been holding back? Any sort of expression verbally. Hope it helps! <3
Hi Ksenia, I follow your blog constantly. Lately I have been having some issues with tinnitus, is there any spiritual cause?
Ksenia Sita says
Hi Tina! Thank you so much for your faithful following 🙂
Here is the explanation I really like – https://energetic-wisdom.co.uk/spiritual-cause-of-tinnitus/
Hi! This is amazing article. I have a question. I am trying to get pregnant with my husband for almost a year. In august I was diagnosed with a little uterus myoma. What are your thoughts about it? Thank you 🙂
Ksenia Sita says
Hi Andrea! Thank you for your kind words.
There are several things to look at here. From the physiological point of view, any sort of tumors or growth in that area (as well as nearly every disease in female organs) are always about blood stagnation. This leads me to the question – are you moving enough? Or do you sit most of the day? Our pelvis and belly should be alive and move a lot in order for the blood to flow freely and enrich our female organs with oxygen.
Second, emotionally any female disease is almost always connected to some kind of hurt that got stuck in us. We either cannot forgive someone (or ourselves), and usually that someone is a man – your dad, first lover, current partner, all men in general. If you cannot figure out which hurt is it, I highly recommend seeing a counselor where you can explore together who might have hurt you and how to let it go.
Alternatively, there may be a conscious or subconscious resistance towards motherhood or mother which manifests as a fake pregnancy which is myoma. Inability to become a mother and a strong desire to become one forces the body to create something in your uterus that is not a baby but takes baby’s place, if that makes sense.
Please also explore the subjects of: guilt, inability to express yourself freely through creativity, fear of losing a partner, and looking up at your pelvic alignment with chiropractor (as oftentimes we have problems there because our hips and pelvis are crooked due to bad posture and/or past incident/trauma).
I hope any of those will be helpful! From me personally, I would advise to try acupuncture (it helped me tremendosly), vaginal/yoni/pelvic steaming, dancing, yoga for women. Much love <3
Hi, such an enlightening post! Thank you!
I’m looking for explanation to why every time I have sex I pay a price with my health – either UTI, bleeds, most recently got beard burn from oral and the skin near my clitoris is currently broken and bleeding. Actually the first time I had sex my partner tore me apart, I needed a surgery to stitch me up. That was 10 years ago. I rarely have sex, I don’t have a boyfriend, it’s often 6-9 months I don’t have sex. I feel like I’m punished each time for enjoying sex and i’m so tired.
Ksenia Sita says
Hi Mare! Thank you for your question. I feel there are several layers here. First of all, what kind of relationships do you have with those partners – romantic or casual? That may affect women in very different ways. Also, perhaps there may be something anatomically different with you, that OBGYN might tell? And also, has there been any sort of sexual trauma or shame in the past or in the childhood that may affect how you perceive sex now that causes pain, bleeding and all sorts of things? Those things seem like sex resistance to me, whether conscious or subconscious on the level of your body. I hope it makes sense. If you would like to discuss it further, feel free to email me for more privacy – firstname.lastname@example.org Hugs! <3
