The Creator gathered all of Creation and said                                                                                                                                                         “I want to hide something from humanity until they are ready for it.”                                                                                         

The eagle said, “Give it to me. I will take it to the moon.”                                                                                                                              Creator said, “No. One day they will go there and find it.”

“Put it inside of them.”

And the Creator said, “It is done.” 

Hopi Creation Story

All life benefits when women come to love their bodies and live from their truth. For the womb is the generator and keeper of Life, the source of full feminine expression. The womb and ovaries are the light generators of the feminine, and the creators of joy. When they are cleared, when they are healed of wounds, those many veils of disempowerment, mis-education, and repression, a woman may connect fully with her own feminine core in clarity, joy, and the full, free expression of the life force, the orgasmic energy of bliss. 

Activating the womb is a powerful act that heals many deep-seated, age-old wounds in both the female and male consciousness. Healing the womb helps activate and illuminate the collective psyche and also powerfully heals on the personal level. For when the womb is cleared, healed, and restored in connection to the heart, women come into their full power. By doing so, the men too become balanced, whole, and healed, as this feminine fire holds the crucible and container for heart- centered relationships.

By women living from their center of power, joy, and life-nurturing capacities, and men supporting this, both become deeply nourished through this deepening and opening within themselves. When a woman and a man have integrated both their aspects, they can rise above being just one or the other, realizing that male and female are just roles to be played, like putting on a robe to suit different occasions. The fluidity of moving between these polarities is accessed when a woman is totally able to be a woman, and a man a man.

An awakened, socially conscious, and egalitarian society is built on the foundation of the womb that honors life in all its forms as the basis of society, not as an “add on” or a pleasing secondary thought. This divine design is activated and manifested through the organic flowering of the womb and application of its laws and rhythms. This divine design descends soul energy into manifestation; at present, human civilization descends mental energy into manifestation and ascends root chakra or survival/ power / sexual energy into manifestation. 

With enough open and healed wombs, no war would dare be fought by men who listen to the voice of the womb, to the empowered, life- affirming woman in their life who shares the sustaining, nurturing power of life. Poverty would be wiped out if more female leaders created, shared, and distributed structures for people to become self-empowered and to live in real relating.

The strengths and depths of the womb provide the security and foundation deep within for us to rise up and express ourselves freely through the heart. The head and heart work within grounded founda- tions sunk deep within the womb. The head by itself cannot come into the heart. The womb is required to bring down the mind into our true center, and then the mind can rise up and express through the heart from solid foundations.

The womb feels autonomous, has a voice of its own, and can respond depending on what is required in each moment. The womb’s voice is wise, ancient, powerful, and connected to the primordial. It is sunk deep, whereas the heart gives rise to passion, inspiration, and the giving and expression of love. Womb holds, heart gives. Heart’s desire is to unify and bring things together—to end division. The womb holds the space, the container, the crucible for this to happen, for this to birth into manifestation.

Heart manifests womb, and womb holds heart in a secure space, allowing the heart to go deeper into its layers rather than just being on the surface or on a sentimental aspect of the heart. The womb holds the steadiness, the unwavering center and ground of creation, steady, still, reliable—the well of creation. With this foundation, the heart then feels safe and secure, feeling its innate and natural ground to lean, rest, and rely upon, a place to arise from in wisdom and strength, able to see clearly and give accordingly to what is the highest potential in that moment.

One can say that the womb is the bank of the river, and the heart is the river. The womb is the container for the alchemy of love to occur and rise into manifestation and being. Mind is the servant of womb-heart, designed to carry out its bidding. The heart is incomplete without the maturity of the womb.

The womb establishes itself deep within the character, the clarity, the stillness and the inner guidance, the commitment and stamina, housing the ground upon which you may come to take solace and guidance throughout your greatest tests in life.

You have within you this reliable source of stillness. Do you have the heart to discover it?
