Most of us are in a state of considerable disconnection from our wombs. It’s not our fault.
We’re not taught how to have a relationship with our wombs. Much of the world still struggles with wanting to maintain control over what happens here, and in our bodies in general.
We store a lot of trauma and shame, whether we are aware of it or not. Our wombs are a repository, a living memory container not just for our own pain but the pain we inherited down from the ancestral line.
As a result, far too many of us have painful periods or some kind of cycle-related dysfunctions that affects nearly every aspect of our lives.
Furthermore, it can be really hard to talk about this. We may feel stuck and alone.
Conventional medicine often has little to offer and when it tries, it’s typically from the framework of how to ‘fix’ periods and women’s problems versus acknowledge the bias and misogyny that exists and causes the problems to begin with.
This space of the womb is highly beyond our control.
The womb, in fact, is in charge. We are better off to befriend and surrender to its wisdom. And I know, this isn’t something we are easily able to do.
I mean, how outrageous and backward might it seem to even be reading this? Reduced to a womb?
But the womb is so much more – wisdom, aliveness, creativity, power – than we know.
Beyond just making physical life, our wombs contain intuition, guidance, safety, and inspiration.
Even if your mind *knows* this to be true, is it actually how you feel about, and relate to, your womb?
Consider that before we can conceive a baby here, we need to clear and prepare the space.
We may need to deal with what may be there festering – and I’m referring to the emotions and energy.
We have to listen and hear the needs of the womb and this relationship will likely take some time to form trust.
The reality is not everyone will be able to conceive of course. However, healing IS available for us all.
It doesn’t mean there is no grief ever or no sadness.
But we can feel great about ourselves as feminine beings. We can feel whole and in love with who we are, just as we are.
We can find an unconditional and whole-hearted acceptance of ourselves. No matter what.
I don’t know what the specific answer or path for any one woman is.
But I know that your womb space knows.
