Finding Your Answer: How to Connect with Your Womb for Decision Making

Do you ever find yourself stuck with making a decision? Do you feel like you are weighing the pros and cons endlessly, but still cannot come to a conclusion? If this sounds familiar, you may want to try the womb practice in this blog.

Your womb can provide you with answers and guidance, especially when it comes to decision making. The vagus nerve, which is one of the longest nerves in your body, ends one of its threads in the uterus. This means that you can literally ask your womb and wait for an answer through sensations.

Back to the vagus nerve for a moment. The vagus nerve is a key player in the mind-body connection. It is the ain nerves for the parasympathetic nervous system, which is the "rest and digest" response that calms the body down after a stressful event. When the vagus nerve is activated, it sends signals to various organs in the body to slow down and relax.

This is why practices like deep breathing, yoga, and meditation are so effective at reducing stress and anxiety - they stimulate the vagus nerve and activate the parasympathetic nervous system.

By connecting to our womb we can listen and receive, we can tap into our innate wisdom and intuition.

The Practice

This practice of asking your womb for answers is also known as womb wisdom or womb intuition.

When you ask a question, pay attention to any sensations that arise in other areas of your body too, such as butterflies in your stomach, a tightness in your chest, or a feeling of expansion or lightness. These physical sensations can be a sign of your body responding to your question and giving you an answer.

It's not about wanting them to go away, but to welcome them to be felt and loved.

This practice may take some time and practice, so no pressure!

  1. Find a quiet and comfortable place where you will not be disturbed. You can either sit or lie down, whichever feels most comfortable for you.

  2. Take a few deep breaths and focus your attention on your womb. You can place your hands on your lower belly to help you connect with this area.

  3. Ask your question out loud or in your mind.

  4. Wait for a few moments and pay attention to any sensations that arise. You may feel a fluttering, a pulling, a warmth, or a coolness in your womb area. Trust whatever sensation comes up for you, as this is your body’s way of communicating with you.

  5. If you do not feel any sensation or are unsure of the answer, that's ok, you are rekindling a relationship. You can try asking the question in a different way or rephrasing it. or simply giving thanks and pay closer attention to any insights throughout your day.

  6. Once you receive a sensation or answer, take a few deep breaths and thank your body for communicating with you.

I hope this serves you.
