It breaks my heart every time to hear about a woman losing her child, no matter how early on. It’s not only the loss of a baby but the dream of becoming a mother, of caring for and nurturing that child, that doctors and even loved ones don’t always understand.
There’s this idea in the fertility world that we need to keep pushing through like female warriors on the quest of making a baby.
And that’s a problem.
Because the heart and the womb don’t work that way. They can’t be pushed into doing what we want. You can’t make your heart love any more than you can make your womb reproduce.
But you CAN nurture them.
That’s the message I shared with my client Shelena, who has lost 5 pregnancies all before 6 weeks. Making her heartbreak even worse, her doctor doesn’t consider them “real miscarriages” because a heartbeat was never detected.
So after her most recent loss, she came to me for a Womb Blessing.
A Womb Blessing is a hands-on energy healing similar to reiki, but focused on the womb and 5 key points related to fertility.
I was amazed at how Shelena’s body responded. I have never felt such a physical thirst from a woman’s body. It’s as though her womb was drinking in the energy, starved for the Divine Feminine reconnection.
On some level, we all are. We’re starving to reconnect with our feminine nature because in our daily lives we’re told to just “pick yourself up and keep going.”
Like Anya, who also lost 5 pregnancies. When she came for a Womb Blessing I suggested we light 5 candles to represent her miscarriages.
Afterward she said:
I resisted doing anything to commemorate them myself because I was afraid to revisit the experiences, but I found that small, ceremonial gesture so moving and very effective. It was the first time that I truly acknowledged these souls and said goodbye.
Now I feel lighter about my efforts to become pregnant and more at peace with my past experiences.
And you can “push through it” up to a point. But at some point you need help.
Help that isn’t medical. Help that isn’t trying to “fix you.” Help that’s healing for you.
If you are struggling to conceive and carry a pregnancy, I want to extend that help to you with a Womb Blessing Ceremony.
Because a Womb Blessing is a direct reconnection between the earth, your heart and your womb.
And to help you begin that reconnection immediately, I want you to have a special meditation called the Womb Tree meditation.
