Women’s Sacred Anatomy 101
The uterus is the strongest muscle in the body and it is about the same size and shape as our hearts.
Every woman is unique and has anatomy that is unique in size and shape. Each woman’s pelvic nerves are spread out differently, so she experiences pleasure differently. Our clitoris has 8,000 nerve endings (twice that of the penis). Our womb is more than the uterus; it is an energy center of feeling. Emotions flow like water through it. Even if we had a hysterectomy the energy is just as strong.
Our past experiences and feelings are held in tissues of the pelvis and uterus. When I was 14 I was sexually assaulted and this sexual trauma caused me to feel shame, guilt and shut down my feelings. Eventually, this energetic wound caused my womb to become out of balance and I had stuck energy, heavy bleeding, and bad cramps. By releasing guilt and shame from our body, we can heal sexual wounds and restore balance, and our womb becomes the center of our creativity.
Our menstrual blood is one way we cleanse emotions, thoughts, and patterns that don’t serve us so we begin life fresh the next cycle. This exercise clears out old, stuck energy from your womb so you can invite in fresh, vibrant energy:
Put your hands on your womb and tune in to the warm and alive energy. Imagine your womb is getting larger and larger so your entire body is your womb, and your arms are reaching out like your fallopian tubes with luscious fruit at the ends of them. Imagine releasing what you do not need out through your womb into the ground. Now, fill your womb with light and energy and blossom with love. Pay attention to what other images and feelings come up.
When you begin bringing attention to your womb your cycle and life may change.
Goddess Ix Chel Womb clearing exercise:
Ix Chel is the Mayan triple moon abundance and fertility goddess of the menstrual cycle and motherhood. Ix means goddess of the feminine and chel means rainbow or light. She is depicted as maiden, mother, and crone often with a rabbit.
She carries an upside-down pot symbolizing the nourishment of water. Her power waxes and wanes with the phases of the moon.

Imagine being nurtured inside Ix Chel’s life-giving womb. Then, see your self now wiping away tears of pain from any trauma you suffered when you were a girl. Honor the burdens and pain, and then let them go. Laugh and be on your way to your new phase of joyful celebration that will come with your rebirth.
After these exercises, be gentle with yourself and drink plenty of water to help the flow of your energy. You may have a new insight into your life or have a burst of creativity.
