Womb Meditation

This beautiful artwork and meditation was created by Saara Turiya, our newest practitioner at The Village. 

To help create a sacred space, you might like to light a candle or burn some incense. Then sit or lie down comfortably.

Drop your shoulders down your back by rolling them back a few times. Drop your jaw by bringing your mouth into a yawn or breathing out gently through the mouth.

Bring your awareness to your breath, breathing in through the nose, and out through gently parted lips. This helps to relax the womb space and pelvic bowl.

Place one hand on your heart space, your centre for unconditional love, and the other on your womb space, just below your belly button. Breathe into both your hands and feel your whole belly expand and release with your breath. Stay here for a few breaths or as long as you feel comfortable. If you are pregnant, connect to your babe inside your womb.

Begin to breathe down into your womb space as you exhale. With each exhale, imagine a river running from your mouth down to your womb space. Keep breathing down the river, filling your womb space with breath and energy. Imagine filling your womb space with your breath, every chamber. As you breath, you might like to let out a sigh on the exhale.

After a few breaths, sit with this feeling, and the sensations in your body. Imagine your womb space like a beautiful night sky, dotted with brilliant bright stars.

You might like to speak an affirmation or a prayer into your womb space. For example, you could say “I love you, I trust you, I am open to receive”. Speak this three times.

Slowly bring your awareness back to your regular breath, and back into your body. Find a way to thank your womb space, by rubbing your lower belly gently and saying “thank you”.

Gently open the eyes, and take a moment to notice how you feel. If you can, journal the experience, even if only a few words.
