Healing our sacred womb-heart connection
According to Chinese Medicine there is a channel linking both the heart and womb creating a strong circuit in women and people. The heart and womb share a symbiotic relationship through the exchange of blood where the heart governs the blood that the uterus is dependent on for normal function. The heart regulates the “opening” and “closing” of the uterus for birth, ovulation, conception and menstruation via the uterus vessel known as the Bao Mai. The Bao Mai is connected to the heart, which explains how emotional conflict, unresolved trauma and stress may influence one’s reproductive health.
In order to protect one’s heart our psyche tends to store our stagnant emotions in the womb. With the buildup of unprocessed emotions and energies the womb-heart connection weakens over time leaving us out of balance and in disharmony with our womb, fertility, sexuality and creativity.
By allowing ourselves to process stored energy in the womb, we tend to the womb-heart connection to find realignment and harmony in our body's, mind and spirit. In turn it may also help relieve common gynaecological issues like fibroids, endometriosis, cysts, PMS, irregular periods while increasing sexual pleasure.
So how can we heal the womb-heart connection?
1. Acknowledge the emotions
This will look different for everyone so find what works for you. Whether that is talking to a friend or a therapist or allowing your stream of consciousness to flow onto paper through journaling and seeing what comes up.
2. Heart Breast / Womb Meditation
A simple practice is to place one hand over your heart and the other on your womb. As you close your eyes and slow your breath, envision white healing light flowing from the universe through your palms to your heart and womb. There are also many guided meditations accessible online if you prefer to listen to a guided meditation.
Regular breast and womb massage using our Moon Oil will help create internal flow & movement in the body but also energetically. The combination of Hemp Seed Oil, Magnesium and Lugol’s Iodine found in the Moon Oil will naturally support breast and womb health. Again using your hands as a channel for healing, imagine sending healing light and love to the body.
4. Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
Seeing an acupuncture & taking herbs will help stimulate the body’s innate healing process, bringing the body back to harmony and balance.
