Womb Wise

By Charlotte Elaine Coburn

I am a woman. I am divine. I have all-knowledge in this womb of mine.

             Listen, dear one. Precious one you are the creator, and the created. The power of the moon, the force of the tides rests within your body. The ancient wisdom of all women is available to you through your sharp mind, and keen understanding. Listen to the call of the Moon Mother within your belly. You are a sacred creature with the gift of knowing. The mysteries of your body are incomprehensible, and the innate wisdom you possess stretches far beyond mere intuition.

Dear one, listen, hear your truest voice from deep within. She will never steer you wrong. Trust in yourself most deeply. Creation entrusted you with incredible powers, learn precious one now, to trust yourself. We live in a realm external. Our minds, our societies, our structure are all about what is outside of us. We were molded and bred to see an external god, disconnected from the land, removed from creation. We are taught that information is only valued, when another on the outside believes it is so. Our worth determined by external calculations of how much time we have in our pockets. It has become not a question of whether this is right or wrong sisters, but more of an awareness. Listen, deep within.

There is perhaps another path, an ancient path. A wisdom sacred, and natural. A knowing that settles in your heart, that leads you to act, or be still. Listen. Claim your power as a wise being, a woman. When we trust ourselves we become confident, and secure, two things that have been denied us for centuries. We can begin to see each other once again as sisters, friends, confidants. If we listen.

Mini-meditation:

Take in a deep breath, and let your body relax. Allow yourself to sink comfortably down into your seat. Just relax and let your seat do all of the work for you. Breath in and exhale with a deep sigh, drawing yourself deeply within. Breathe here, in this space for a moment. Feel that you are now present. Mindful. Know that in this space, you are a goddess of your inner world. This is the birthplace of confidence, and limitless potential. Know that you can return to this place at anytime, you need only to breathe, and listen.
