Good morning darlings,
I get a lot of questions about the work I do around “The Feminine” and “Femininity” – I’ve decided to start answering them on the blog so as to give others more visibility to the answers. ALSO – if you have a questions for me – about just about anything feel free to click the little linky at the bottom of the page and I’ll answer or go here!
Q: I had a hysterectomy. When I hear all of this talk about “womb space” and “the feminine” I feel excluded and a bit resentful. I find myself feeling totally disconnected from my body and any sense of myself as feminine. Can I still live in my feminine essence even though I’m less of a woman?
A: My Beautiful Sister,
First let me say I am sorry for your loss. The loss of your womb is an event to be acknowledged. It is no less significant than losing an arm or a leg. If you have not had an opportunity to grieve I really urge you to take some time just for you and do so. It can be one of the most powerful healing practices you can do. If you need assistance in finding rituals and ways of honoring and grieving, or you’d like to experience the power of being Witnessed in your process – let’s talk.
Let me also say you are in NO WAY less of a woman!! Not at all! “Womb space” and ‘feminine essence” is an energetic space – not a physical one. It is a space that you can ALWAYS tap into. It is always yours and yours alone – it can not be taken away from you.
Feeling a disconnect from this area of energy that is symbolized physically after it has experienced physical trauma is very natural. Here are some tools to help reconnect. (These tools are especially helpful for post menopausal women as well)
Herbs and Supplements: Herbs such as Vitex (also known as Chasteberry), Maca, Dong Quai, Nettles, Royal Jelly and Progestelle . (not intended to diagnose or cure any illness)
Exercise : Yin Yoga, Belly Dance, Ecstatic Dance
Crystals: Chrysocolla, Silver
I also offer fabulous one on one connecting both virtually and in person where I can share with you practices that will meaningfully and deeply help you connect with your Essence. Yes, dear sister – Feminine essence is YOURS!
You can also be a part of the AMAZING and succulent School of Feminine Transformation. It’s a great way to reconnect!! I hope to see you there!
In Love and Lushness,
