5 Ways to Care for Your Sacred Womb

As women are seeking higher states of well-being, the art of attuning to the womb, and ancient ways of caring for the feminine body and spirit are being awakened and remembered.

Many women are turning to ancient wise woman ways for greater feminine health, and to live a nourishing and soul-connected life.

Through my personal healing journey and my experiences as a shamanic womb healer, I have become aware of supportive tools and practices for awakening your feminine wisdom and health, and I want to share them here with you~ 

1. Listen to Her.

Your womb is your own personal guidance center, who holds personal wisdom just for you. She also has an incredibly potent creative capacity. You can listen to your womb to receive guidance for your daily life, health, healing, relationships, as well as deeper messages about your soul’s path and direction. You can really ask her anything. 

To explore listening to your womb, begin by putting your hands over your womb, taking some deep breaths, and asking her if she has any messages for you. The guidance may come in words, sensations, colors, visuals or feelings. You can ask her what she is needing to release and to let go of so you may be more in alignment with your highest life path. Then ask what she desires to create~ what her deepest passions are and how she wants them to manifest. Breathe into this energy and amplify her desires so it may grow in your life. 

I also recommend a journaling process I call “Womb Speak,” where you connect to your womb through intention and breath, and then begin to write in a stream of consciousness form, allowing your mind to get out of the way and your womb to express through words onto paper. It is amazing the wisdom, and self-care guidance that can come from your womb when you give her the opportunity to speak. 

2. Honor your Cycle.

Our bodies have varying needs through the 4 phases of the menstrual cycle. If you are a woman who is still menstruating, it is helpful to understand how your hormones, energy levels, and physical, emotional and spiritual needs shift every week. Try slowing down around your menses, giving yourself more time for rest and inner reflection. Explore eating some warming soup and sipping raspberry leaf tea during your moon time. 

During Ovulation, allow your playful, creative, and sensual self to be awake and activated, and use this time to make important decisions, connections, and meetings. You are naturally magnetic during this time and focused outward.

Also, learn what foods and types of exercise you need to support your 4 weekly phases to optimize health and well-being. I recommend the book Woman Code by Alisa Vitti to learn more about creating a healthy monthly cycle. 

3. Yoni Steaming.

Utilize this women’s reproductive health practice of allowing your womb to absorb the healing effects of herbal infused steam. Yoni (vaginal) steaming has many physical benefits, including regulating the menstrual cycle, and reducing pain, clots and cramping. This practice feels nourishing and enlivening for the whole womb, and can be done any time of the month except during menstruation and pregnancy. 

The herb that I have felt the most connected to when steaming is Mugwort, but there are many herbs to explore for your womb healing needs. There are instructions and recommendations for yoni steaming many places online. 

4. Energy Clearing.

Our wombs are incredible space holders that gestate energy until we consciously release it (or birth it into the world). A challenge with this continuous space holding arises when we are not conscious of what the womb is holding. For example, the energy of past lovers, family members, or other energies that are not serving your highest well-being (and could even be toxic) may be in the womb until you choose to consciously clear them out.

It is healthier for you to embody your own soul essence and creative energy in your womb rather than be weighed down by other’s energies. 

Often we unconsciously hold other people’s energy because on some level we are trying to take care of them, give or receive love, or we were wounded in the relationship with them, and our soul is trying to call our attention to the wound in order to heal it. Generally it is more empowering for both you and the others in your life to be free of these cords and entanglements.

If there are certain connections that feel healthy and nourishing, and you desire to hold these relationships in your womb for sacred or creative purposes, it is best to do that with conscious intention and love. For energetic womb clearing, you can guide the process yourself, or have an experienced energetic healer or womb practitioner be your guide.

5. Get Support.

As we have seen from the #metoo movement and women speaking out recently, it is clear that most women have experienced some form sexual assault or abuse. If you have experienced this kind of trauma (whether subtle or very straight-forward), most likely your womb is still holding this pain.

This sexual trauma can manifest as physical pain and illness in the womb, emotional and physical pain during sex, relationship difficulties, and much more.

It is hard to heal and process this kind of trauma on your own because there is often much shame, rage and grief that needs to be processed and released in a safe and loving container. Whether you chose a somatic therapy, counseling, womb healing, or shamanic energy healing to release these traumas, I highly recommended you get support. You deserve it! 

These are a handful of very potent ways to care for your sacred womb, and each practice is a whole world of healing to explore within itself. Start with what intuitively calls you and begin there. If you are interested in shamanic womb healing with me you can contact me by clicking here

How to Receive Your Feminine Nectar

Teachings of the Hummingbird

Dear Sisters,

The blissful medicine of the hummingbird is here to teach us about the feminine awakening process. After experiencing a hummingbird fly directly into our evening Rite of the Womb ceremony last week, I am inspired to share the teachings of this wondrous little creature.

From the hummingbird’s daily routines, and versatility, to its courageous migrations, we can upgrade our feminine journey though it's messages. Enjoy!

This Week's Hummingbird Womb Wisdom~
Remember to Drink Sweetly from the Nectar of Life

The most incredible thing about hummingbirds is how they spend each day joyfully humming from flower to flower, nourishing their bodies with abundant and juicy nectar.

 

 

As a woman, it is vital to receive this 'nectar of life,' and this happens when you slow down enough to allow your sensual pleasure to arise. This 'nectar' has space to move into you when you soften your heart, and open your womb to receive.

Within this opening of the womb, there is a release of control, and a loosening of the grip on life, creating space for divine energy to pour through you. This allowing of the nectar is what you are truly craving.

This nectar is your breath, your cycles and emotions, and your sounds; it is your hips circling, and your womb releasing every month. This nectar is creation, and pro-creation, and the moan that comes when you allow chocolate to melt over your tongue.

This nectar nourishes your feminine spirit, and helps you remember who you are underneath the busy chatter of the mind. It is both the lightness of a shimmering flower and the depth of the dark sea. This nectar supports you in remembering your unique purpose and inspires your engagement in life.

This nectar is YOU. Have you remembered to receive yourself?

Our biggest challenge is forgetting the necessity of slowing down for our well being! We get caught up in working, taking care of others, and to-do lists, while quickly losing sight of self-nourishment and self-care.

To support your movement back into receiving the feminine nectar within, I offer you a simple and deep practice:
 
Receive your Nectar~ The Essential Womb Breath

1. Right now, while you are reading this, close your eyes and feel the warmth of your breath, following your inhale and exhale for 3 slow breaths.

2. Bring your hands to the front of your womb in a nurturing way.

3. Bring your deep breath and awareness down into your womb, and as you exhale, allow a sigh, sound, or moan to come from your womb. Truly let go on the exhale. Let your womb express her self through this sound. Receive the nourishment of the breath and womb awareness. Repeat for 3 breaths.

How do you feel?

Take this practice home with you, and practice the essential womb breath every morning, and every evening before bed. Enjoy your womb and breath as the hummingbird enjoys the nectar of the flower, continuously, and with great love.


Namaste,
Chancy Deanna
