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.

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.

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.
