What is a Womb Ceremony?
There are many types of energy healing treatments available, so many, in fact, that it can be a little daunting to choose which type of healing would be best for your situation.
Healing is universal and deals with a range of symptoms, such as insomnia, generalised anxiety and pain reduction to name a few. The benefits of receiving healing are greater mental clarity and the ability to relax more deeply, which is beneficial for both men and women.
But, what about specific women's health issues, such as menopause, PMT, fibroids, PCOS, infertility, endometriosis or other gynaecological conditions?
I wanted to find a healing system that was more specifically targeted to a woman after I was told I would need IVF to even stand a chance at becoming pregnant and it didn't work, I wanted to reconnect with what being a woman would mean for me. When I was diagnosed with all of the things it was at a hugely stressful time for me with work, relationships and life in general, which I now know created electrical, chemical and hormonal discharges into my body manifesting as a serious imbalance and played a part in the fibroids I got later in life.
For me, fibroids and prolonged heavy bleeding was Mother Nature's way of saying "Are you directing your energy into a life that isn't part of your plan?" And my answer was yes.
What is a Womb Ceremony?
A Womb Ceremony is a transformational therapy that brings powerful awakening and healing to our femininity, to our cycles and also to the female archetypes. These archetypes are described as the stages in a woman's life; maiden, mother, enchantress and crone. They are embodied in all women.
A Womb Blessing connects us deeply to our female nature, brings awareness to our power and brings its sacredness into our everyday lives.
Finding my flow with a Womb Ceremony
I discovered this healing after hearing feedback from other women in my position who had tried it. Without hesitation, I booked in with a healer to experience it and find out more.
The Womb Ceremony was offered as a healing ceremony where I was offered Cacao, taken through a guided meditation while I sat upright in a chair and had a rose foot soak, then I was asked to lay on the bed while the practitioner placed crystals and her hands lightly over areas of my body but mostly directed at my sacral chakra (uterus).
It was truly enlightening to understand that, even though my physical womb could not and would not be used to create a new life, receiving healing this way would help me to recuperate after surgery and the grief, and also connect me back to my womanhood and creativity that is held there. This is because the womb 'space' is still energetically the same, even if you can't birth a baby, or had a hysterectomy.
After this experience, I trained in the therapy so that I might better understand its benefits and share it with others who felt as I did. My Ceremony differs slightly from what I experienced way back when I include more crystals, (because I am me), I use Reiki energy and sound healing when working on the body, if a client wishes I swap out the foot soak with a yoni steam and I include a womb wrap because when I experienced that for the first time I knew it was a perfect combination.
How can Womb Ceremony help?
One of the most powerful revelations was how, the more connected I felt to my femininity, the more authentic I became. I began to let go of patterns of behaviour that no longer served me, and even started dressing more creatively!
Every Womb Blessing builds on the one before, as we begin to become more connected to our deeper self and more in-tune with our body. It becomes a path to discover who we truly are as beautiful, spiritual, sensual, creative and empowered women.
At the end of the session, I was offered a snack and a drink, and a chance to speak from the heart about anything that had been brought to my attention during the healing. This felt very nurturing and it made me realise how, as women, we often do not give ourselves enough time to receive.
A reluctance to acknowledge the need for help is commonplace amongst women, as we are often the main caregiver. But, deciding to commit to a journey of healing is to commit to a path of self-discovery, awakening, personal development and relief from the stresses and strains of a masculine world.
How to prepare for a Womb Ceremony
I only offer a Womb Ceremony as an in-person 2-hour session. It is important to make time to receive the energy and coming to see me means you have to cut out other distractions. Allow time to prepare for your session, and then around two hours to connect to the therapist, receive the healing and then some time to rest afterwards.
In preparing you simply need to be warm and comfortable. Wearing a skirt if you are choosing to have a Yoni steam will make things easier for you and I always recommend doing so. There will be crystal-infused water on hand during the treatment but ensure you have a large bottle of water to hand for afterwards, and it is also nice to have a pad and pen to make notes on how you feel before and after the session.
Ensuring you have time to rest after the session is an important part of learning to receive. Our fast-paced culture tends to disregard the importance of rest and recovery. When you rest after a Womb Ceremony (or any healing session for that matter), your cells have time to process the new frequencies. This could mean that you fall asleep for a short while but, if that does happen, it tells you that your body really needed it!
Womb Ceremonies are 2-hour sessions and there is a £70 exchange. Drop me an email or reach out on social media if you are drawn to experience this wonderful session
