The Womb Is a Portal
Connecting to the womb is a critical and essential part of our holistic health, sexual embodiment and collective healing. This space is the gateway to all creation and is a portal to our power, passion and purpose, birthing human life and holding the energetic power to birth all of our creative projects.
In Tantric tradition, the womb / yoni is the path to healing the feminine heart; when opened and connected to, we have the power to change this world. The awakened womb carries the power to rebirth this world into that of love, aligned with passion and soul, as we move way from the existing matrix based upon fear and control. Everything that women birth (every project, every child) is aligned with pure unconditional love and joy.
Disconnection From Womb wisdom
Unfortunately so many women are disconnected from their power. The womb is an energetic dumping ground for unresolved trauma and suppressed emotions. Disconnection from one's self will affect how a woman interacts with the world, her creative inspirations, how she navigates her emotions, and even how she expresses intimacy and human relations.
The womb governs our subconscious realms and emotional body. She may become cluttered with suppressed emotions and feelings if the woman does not work with the wisdom of her menstruation with awareness. Creations will then either not end up manifesting, or be brought to life from our wounds/trauma, disconnecting us from our clear intuition and wisdom.
Tantric Feminine Arts teaches that the womb and yoni portals are the most receptive feminine centers. If we aren’t consciously menstruating and self-clearing, we end up not only storing personal emotions, but also taking on our sexual partners subconscious trauma. As a result, our clarity and creative potential become clouded.
The immense power that is held within this deep cavern of mystery is truly incredible; the womb holds the vortex of creation, life, birth, death and rebirth. Each cycle during bleeding, we literally experience a shamanic death and rebirth, releasing what no longer serves our true selves in order to emerge anew each month. Bleeding is a deep and powerful experience; the wisdom and intelligence of this process travels beyond any spiritual textbook or concept, as we are directly embodying this process.
Connecting To The Womb
There are many ways in which we can begin to work with connecting to the womb as a source of creativity and wisdom. Unlocking this consciousness begins with bringing awareness to our powerful portal, and simply feeling its potential in creating.
1. Menstruation Magic
Menstruation Magic is the term I have given for women who consciously menstruate and embrace the magic of her menstruation. This comes with simply understanding what is going on each cycle: physically, emotionally and spiritually. It means working WITH your natural bodily rhythms and not against them. Leverage your life and relationships to work WITH your flow vs. hustling and forcing. This involves knowing when your creative energy is at its peak, therefore scheduling major outward expressions and high energy activities around certain times of the month. Equally importantly is acknowledging when your energy is at its most receptive and introspective, allowing for time to retreat, reflect and dream of creative ideas, information, messages, and insights from your higher self.

2. Awakening Womb Consciousness
Self clearing and tantric practices may also play a role in unlocking the portals of consciousness that reside in the womb. Through conscious menstruation we indirectly awaken our wisdom and creativity. A simple creation and healing meditation with focus on your womb can consist of visualization of clearing out unwanted energies, or past lovers, and filling your space up with pure white healing light. Additionally, reconnecting yourself to the earth by imagining a beam of light moving from your womb space into the rooted earth will begin to heal traumas that surround your own birthing experience and mother’s womb.
3. Jade Egg Practice
If we are unconsciously menstruating and are unaware of what is going on in our bodies, we are not embodying the life force and creative energy of menstruation.
The Jade Egg practice is an ancient Taoist Tantric practice that works with awakening your sexuality by circulating this energy throughout your body. 40% of a woman’s daily life force energy is used by transforming eggs. So by the time ovulation occurs, the eggs are overflowing with vital energy and packed with life force energy.
One way to help circulate and redistribute this life force energy that is stored in your ovaries, is through the use of a Jade Egg along with the Taoist Tantric breathing technique called ‘Ovarian Breathing’ – which circulates the energy around the body from the ovaries so that it doesn’t become ‘stuck’ and unconsciously lost when you bleed. You can also purchase Jade Eggs from my online shop. Be sure to not apply these techniques while menstruating.
Rebirth Your Inner Feminine
When we move our awareness into our womb center, we naturally begin to release all that is no longer in alignment with our highest feminine expression. As we slowly rebirth our selves as women, embodied expressions of divinity flourish into existence every cycle. Together as sisters we are re-birthing ancient ways of existence, forming a web of awakened wombs on this earth. Womb consciousness is currently becoming a revolution that will heal this world, as we heal ourselves, one womb at a time.
