Womb Blessings help you embody your creative, cyclical, sensual energy
In May 2014 I became a certified ‘Moon Mother’ by Miranda Gray- Writer, artist, menstrual & spiritual teacher. Miranda is the author of the books Red Moon and The Optimised Woman. Her books were some of my guides for living in harmony with my menstrual cycle for several years. I was thrilled to meet and study with Miranda when she visited us from the UK. www.mirandagray.com
I became certified as a ‘Moon Mother’ so I could bring Miranda Gray’s Womb Blessing & Womb Healing sessions here to womxn in Toronto, Ontario.
Womb blessings help people feel empowered in their cycles, release stored trauma in the womb, and help us embrace our creative, sensual and cyclical energies that live within and through us.
WHAT IS A WOMB BLESSING?
The Womb Blessing is both a healing and a communion with the lunar and earth cycle energies. It is a gentle, reiki-style energy transfer that is healing, nurturing and empowering. It helps you:
- Embody your cyclical energy & its various expressions
- Accept and enhance your fertility, creativity, sexuality and spirituality
- Help you journey through changes in life
- Celebrate first bleeding or last bleeding, new life or death, new beginnings or endings, facilitate any life changes such as marriage, divorce, grief, loss, trauma, coming-out, post-partum, pregnancy, etc.
- Celebrate the moon phases, seasons and your menstrual cycle (if applicable)
- Heal deep patterns of your ancestry and past
- Embody your connection with nature- unite with the power of the moon and the earth.
Feel part of a worldwide spiritual family- A few times a year, Miranda and Moon Mothers provide World Wide Womb Blessings- Free distance healing for all women. Please visit www.wombblessing.com for more information).
Womb Blessings are non-invasive, gentle energy transfer done fully clothed, seated or lying down. We will do a visualisation together that will help you to receive and also take an active role in your own healing. We may discuss practical ways you can bring more harmony to your womb-health in your daily life.
“The Womb Blessing helped me remove a big need for approval from men.. something I internally had in me and wasn’t consciously aware.. I used to give my power away to men easily… And now I trust my inner wisdom. My periods are back to normal, I used to have tough first 2 days. And I feel like a goddess, a pink one 🙂 sensuality is back full swing…”
WHAT IS A WOMB healing?
A Womb Healing is also a non-invasive, gentle energy transfer done fully clothed, lying down. It differs from the Womb Blessing in that it helps to ground and stabilise your energy, rather than having a deep, transformational effect. This is most often used in conjunction with the Womb Blessing to help ground the energy transfer, but it can also be a stand-alone treatment to help you feel more grounded, embodied and relaxed when life is too chaotic, your nerves are frazzled, or your life has been undergoing alot of change and you don’t feel ready to take on a deeper transformation at that time.
You can choose a Womb Blessing if you feel ready for deeper healing and transformation, A Womb Healing for some grounding and relaxation, or a combination of both for maximum healing benefit, which is what I most often recommend. Womb Blessings and Healings are safe during the first 6 months of pregnancy.
frequently asked questions:
I don't have a menstrual cycle/ have had a hysterectomy/am on the pill/ am going through menopause/, can I benefit?
Yes! The Womb Blessing and Healing is appropriate even if you don’t/no longer have a cycle or a womb, and is appropriate if you are on the birth control pill as well. The Womb Blessing can help heal old traumas from your past that still hold an energetic charge and can affect your overall health and relationship to yourself. After menopause, we have even deeper wisdom at our disposal which this energy healing can awaken. A Womb Blessing can help you access the power of your cyclical wisdom and life experience, enhance your creativity and nearly all the same benefits that a menstruating woman receives.
Is this healing accessible to Trans and/or non-binary folk?
Yes. Whether you have a physical womb or not, we all have a Sacral Chakra (pelvic energy centre), a sensual, creative part of ourselves and a connection with the life-death-rebirth cycles of nature. We are empowered through balancing and connecting to this part of us. Questions? email me: Serena.L.Oakley@gmail.com
Will a Womb Blessing help my fertility or help cure my (insert health issue here)?
It can definitely help! As with all forms of energy healing, the energy will go to where it is needed and ready to be received. You may experience better periods, stronger fertility, more energy, a clearing up of a health issue, or more. You will receive what your mind, body, heart and spirit feel ready for at the time.
How will I feel after a Womb Blessing?
The effects can be many. Some people will integrate the energies smoothly and feel wonderfully energised or pleasantly relaxed or sleepy. Some people may experience a ‘clearing’ in their body and energy for the days or weeks after the Womb Blessing. Their cycle may shift, emotions and energy levels may shift. This is temporary and part of the healing process as the new energies clear out old patterns that are no longer serving you. Be patient and gentle with yourself for the few weeks after the Womb Blessing, as it can be a transformational experience.
I am stressed and going through a lot of changes right now. Is this appropriate or will it stir things up more?
I can adapt the session to have a more supportive, nurturing and stabilising effect on your body and life. When things have calmed down a bit and you feel ready to integrate a deeper healing and release, we can do a more intense session then. Feel free to contact me to book a free 20-min phone consult to discuss your situation.
I feel very strongly that I need this healing, but I do not have financial means of payment. What can I do?
For those who do not have the financial means of payment and feel a strong need for this healing, please inquire about energy exchange, or we can discuss another payment option that works for you. I sometimes work on a PWYC basis, depending on he needs of the client. I also recommend signing up for the Free World Wide Womb Blessings that take place 5 times a year: www.wombblessing.com
