3 Powerful Practices for Healing the Womb

Woman With Hands on Stomach

The womb is a source of power into which we can tap at any time. When we can release any stagnant energy or emotions that may be held in the womb, we can allow ourselves to fully align to all of the potential available within. By connecting with your body and breath, you can allow the energy in the womb to flow freely and create space for healing.

The womb is sacred. Since it's the part of the body where life is created and nurtured, it holds immense energy and potential. However, over time, the energy in our wombs can become blocked or stagnant, leading to physical and emotional imbalances. These blockages can be caused by negative past experiences, stress, surgeries, or toxic relationships.

Many of us only give the womb attention during times of menstruation, pregnancy, or childbirth. But what does this say to our wombs? By not nurturing and honoring this space, we are cutting ourselves off from all of the potential it holds.

When we take time to connect with and heal our wombs, we can tap into this powerful source of energy and reclaim our feminine power. These three practices can help to promote healing and balance in the womb, allowing us to fully step into our fullest feminine power.

Note: These womb practices are for all who identify as women, whether or not you have a physical womb. If your womb was removed during surgery, or you were not born with a womb, you can still do this practice. Ultimately, the womb is an energy, and the body will still hold this energy, even without a physical womb present.

The Practice of Self-Touch
Self-touch is a powerful tool that can be used to heal the body, mind, and heart. It's a way to connect with our bodies and show ourselves some self-love and nurturing. When we place our hands over our lower belly, we are giving our womb the attention it deserves. We are acknowledging that this space is important and needs our care.

One of the benefits of self-touch is the release of oxytocin, a hormone often called the "love hormone." Oxytocin is released when we feel love, trust, and connection. By touching our womb, we are activating this hormone, which can help us feel more relaxed, balanced, and at ease.

To begin, find a quiet place where you won't be disturbed. Sit down with a straight spine and place your hands over your lower belly. And now, just breathe. Allow yourself to sink into the stillness and just be with your body. Pay attention to any sensations–like warmth or tingling–that you may feel in this space.

As you continue to breathe, imagine a warm light radiating from your hands and into your womb. Imagine that this light is easing or healing any stuck energies that may be stored in this space. Allow yourself to feel whatever emotions come up.

This is a practice that can be done in as little as 1-2 minutes as a daily kind of check-in with the womb; or, if you're really feeling it, you can keep this practice going for 10-20 minutes.

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 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.

The Power of Wombfirmations
Affirmations are potent words that we can use to transform our mindset and fill our bodies with positive energy. When we speak kind and loving words to our womb, we can help to heal any emotional or physical wounds that may be present. I like to call them "wombfirmations" because they're specifically focused on healing the womb.

Here are some powerful wombfirmations that you can use to heal your womb:
My womb is healthy and powerful. These words send a positive message to this sacred part of ourselves. The energy of that message has the potential to fill us up with healing, loving potential.

My womb is a sacred space that deserves love and care. When we view our womb as a sacred space, everything changes. We can start to celebrate, honor, and appreciate our wombs more deeply.

I release any emotional pain that may be stored in my womb. The womb is the part of ourselves that often holds onto emotional pain. Any negative experiences we've had with pregnancy, childbirth, or sex are also held in this area. By acknowledging and releasing this energy, we can allow ourselves to heal and move forward.

I am worthy of love and nurturing. Don't ever doubt that you're worth it. You're worthy of deep love and nurturing, not only from others, but from yourself. Feel this knowledge deep within your heart as you say these words, and know that you've got this.

Try to repeat these wombfirmations several times, whenever you want to connect with or heal your womb. By using these wombfirmations, you can align to your innate power and authenticity. Of course, we all know that healing takes time and energy. The idea is to release your expectations of what this might look like and just allow yourself to be in the moment. Know that wombfirmations can offer you support and stability during your journey. Speak kind and loving words to your womb and watch it bloom.

Let's shift away from looking at the womb as simply a part of the reproductive system. It's so much more than that. It's a space inside of us that vibrates with raw power. Honor and cherish this space. Nurture it with all of your love and energy. When your womb heals, you'll realize that all of the joy, bliss, and abundance that you've been looking for has been within you this whole time.
