Womb trauma

Did you know that we hold all emotional baggage and traumas within our wombs?

These may consist of:

•Birth Trauma

•Sexual Trauma

•Being shamed/guilted for sexual energy

•Emotional Trauma

•Trauma from sexual partners

Keeping energies of this nature stuck in our wombs can manifest as physical diseases.

These may consist of:

•Vaginal Dryness

•Painful Periods

•Heavy Periods

•Long Periods

Ways we can remove these stuck energies and diseases from our wombs are:


•Womb Meditation

•Womb Affirmations



•Yoni Steaming

•Connecting with and embracing your divine feminine energy

How do you release trapped energy from your womb?✨🌻

The Power of Womb Breathing

Deep breathing is a powerful tool that can help us connect with our bodies and release any tension or stress that we may be holding onto. When we breathe deeply into our womb space, we can relax in this area and clear out any stagnant energies that may be blocking our vitality and creativity.

To begin the practice of deep breathing for womb healing, find a quiet and comfortable place where you can sit or lie down without any distractions. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, allowing your body to relax and release any tension.

Next, bring your attention to your womb space. You may want to place a hand on your belly to help you connect more deeply with this area. As you inhale, imagine that you are breathing down into your womb, filling it with nourishing and healing energy. As you exhale, imagine that you are releasing any stuck or stagnant energies that may be blocking your womb's natural flow.

Repeat this process for several minutes, taking slow and deep breaths as you focus on your womb. You may notice that you feel more relaxed and centered after just a few breaths, or you may need to practice this technique regularly to see more profound results.

Bring awareness to your womb

During retreats and ceremonies, I often guide women into meditation and then hold the space for them to talk to their wombs for perhaps the first time in their lives. Sound weird? It isn't. A healthy womb is constantly sending energetic messages to us. She guides us through life safely and wisely, giving us indicators for safety and danger. Some women feel frustrated when they try to reach out to their wombs but get no answer. I like to use the analogy of if you had a friend call you every day for a few years but you never answered the phone, she'd probably give up eventually. And if you tried to call her one day after years of ignoring her calls, she probably wouldn't answer! Talk to her, nourish her, and do what feels best for her. For example, during your cycle on your heaviest day, don't go out and run 10 miles after a stressful day at work. Take some quiet time, take a bath, read a book, and go to bed early. Nourish and love her, she has a lot of work to do!

How it feels when you have healed your womb

When you have healed your womb, you may feel a profound sense of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Here are some of the ways you may feel after healing your womb:

Physical comfort: Healing the pelvic region can relieve physical discomfort and tension, leading to greater physical comfort and ease.

Emotional balance: By releasing emotional trauma and tension held in the pelvic area, womb healing can promote emotional balance, stability, and resilience.

Improved relationships: Healing the pelvic region can improve intimacy and relationships, leading to greater emotional fulfillment and satisfaction.

Increased creativity: By promoting flow and balance in the womb, womb healing can increase creativity and inspiration, allowing for greater artistic expression and innovation.

Greater spiritual connection: Healing the womb can deepen spiritual connection and awareness, connecting you to the divine feminine and the cycles of nature.


The opposite of repression is expression. To process our emotional distress and move it through and out of our body so it doesn’t get stuck there, we need to learn to express our emotions healthily, in the body and mind. But first, we need to learn to recognize and accept our feelings as they come and go.

Step 1: Recognize (self-awareness)

The challenge is to recognize the emotion and feel it in your body. This is where mindfulness comes in. The goal is to notice what is happening within our body, accept it, and feel it fully, without judgment.

If you’ve ever come across Tara Brach’s teachings on radical acceptance, the practice of R.A.I.N. should sound familiar. R.A.I.N. stands for recognize, allow, investigate, and nourish (with self-compassion), and it “directly de-conditions the habitual ways in which you resist your moment-to-moment experience,” according to Brach.

Buddhist teachings tell us that human suffering is caused by aversion and resistance to what is happening. Acceptance is liberating, and the practice of R.A.I.N. teaches us to accept our moment-to-moment experience instead of running from it. It teaches us to face any difficulty head-on, with self-compassion and the understanding that it will eventually pass.

We have to feel it to heal it—we have to fully experience the emotion to process and integrate it into our experience.

But we must feel it in the body; this is the critical point. As Brach writes, “If the process of including difficult emotions in awareness stops at the level of cognitive understanding without a fully embodied experience, the genuine acceptance, insight, and inner freedom that are the essence of true healing will not be complete.”

Practice mindfulness to get better at recognizing your feelings and observing the bodily sensations connected to those feelings, as they come and go throughout the day. Offer yourself self-compassion as you go through more difficult emotions.


Sit still for a few minutes with your eyes closed. Listen to your body and become curious.

What does your body feel like right now? Is there any pressure or tingling? Where? Do you feel heavy, hot, contracted, warm, or cold? What is the texture, weight, and shape of sensations you notice in your body? What emotions are those sensations connected to? Can you breathe into the parts that call your attention? What do those parts of your body want to tell you? What do they want?

Step 2: Respond (self-expression)

Emotions need to be expressed to be processed. The goal is to move the energy of emotion through and out of the body so we can let it go.

This self-expression must be authentic and embodied. Remember, true healing occurs when body and mind integrate, so express the emotion on the bodily level first and foremost.

Still sitting, ask yourself: What does this emotion you just connected with need from you? What feels right in this moment? What do you need?

Maybe you feel the need to cry, scream into a pillow, go for a swim, walk or run, dance it out, hit a punching bag, do some gardening, tapping, yoga, or TRE, paint your feelings out, or simply breathe deeply while facing the sun—whatever feels cathartic at that moment, do it.

You will free the poisonous emotion that you carried within yourself, and free yourself from its shackles.

Follow this step with one of the best forms of emotional healing—journaling. Writing can be a very therapeutic experience of self-discovery, reconnecting with our true selves, and processing our deepest feelings and emotions.

When we write we give our internal world a voice. We process and make sense of what is happening within us and around us. And we gain perspective; by writing about our fears and hurts we can look at them from a distance, detach from their grip, and eventually let them go. That release can be truly healing.

Practice journaling every day to get better at expressing and processing your feelings. Don’t censor or judge yourself; let it all out, completely unfiltered. Over time, your journal will become a safe space for you to free yourself, get unstuck, and move forward.

We often don’t have the time and space to process emotions at the moment, so make sure you allow yourself the space to feel the emotions you’ve had through the day and journal about them at the end of each day.


What is happening in your life right now that you wish you could change? What is the biggest source of frustration? As you write, notice the sensations in your body. Tune into the parts that are numb, in pain, or frozen. What are they trying to tell you? What needs healing, attention, or change?

Step 3: Reset (self-care)

If we’ve habitually neglected our bodies and ignored our emotions, we have to re-dedicate ourselves to body-mind self-care and indulge in healing habits that will bring in the feeling of well-being.

The goal is to realign back with your authentic self, reset back to a relaxed and open state, and come back into wellness and balance.
