In the past new moon, I shared my big breakthrough: how I healed my womb and opened a new chapter of my life – becoming a mother. I received so many wonderful blessings from the community. Thank you all so much!
Some of you also shared your personal stories of healing and transformation, which touched me deeply. Below is a beautiful and empowering story shared by Laura. I hope her story inspires you to dive deeper to reconnect with and heal your womb on this powerful September Harvest Moon…
You’ve inspired me to share my own yoga experience this week. First of all, congratulations on your pregnancy. Motherhood for me has been – and continues to be – the most incredible journey imaginable. I have loved it. I’m actually at the opposite end of things. My children are now 20 and 14 – both boys and my experience as a mother/woman is changing daily.
I’m also reconnecting with my womb. As I face a relationship breakup and move (this week!), I find myself having the need to create an income for myself and the need to find a new focus in my life. Big stuff!
I have been experiencing lower back pain and hip pain for a long time. I was in a yoga class this week and during the final relaxation I experienced the usual sharp pain around my hip flexor area, accompanied by a sensation of absolute terror and the feeling of a child ‘clinging’ so tightly to something.
I knew it was me. I also had a challenging childhood and this child inside was/is terrified to let go of ‘what is’ and move into the new. I ‘saw’ her fear and I cried for her. I came home and cried and just said, “sorry and I love you” over and over again.
That was Friday morning and in the afternoon, I was signing the lease to my new place – with nothing but 6 months rent and a weekly budget for food and bills – and my 14 year old son still to care for. The strange thing to me was that I felt no nerves, no fear as I went through this process with the estate agent.
I love how you talk about reconnecting with your womb and becoming a ‘woman’ and I think this is the journey I now face. Abusive relationships with men – and obviously therefore myself – have been my thing and I’m ready now, to let go of that and have a period of time discovering myself as a woman.
My 14 year old lives with me for half the week and his dad for the other half – so I’ll have some time curled on the couch with rosehip tea, I think. I don’t usually share like this, but your email was so lovely to read. So thank you for your sharing and I hope you get something from my sharing too.
