“Coming home to your belly”
The belly is such a sacred place to be present from. It is the space through which we process emotions, where we process the food we eat that is given to us by the Mother, the place where we can consciously connect with her womb, that of the Cosmic Mother and our own womb, our own place of creation. Here we carry the seeds of our dreams of what we want to give birth to in our life.
Where we carry the inner child, while simultaneously becoming a mother to it: here, we learn to carry ourselves.
There is so much intelligence and ancient knowledge we can tap into if we choose to sink all the way down in presence in the belly. Because only if we are present from within this place can we deeply listen and connect with the web creation that weaves together all of life.
It is here where we can welcome emotions, where we welcome our creativity, where we welcome our sexuality, where we can welcome trust because it is here that we can feel how supported we are by everything that is given to us. Here we can integrate all we receive and allow it to form the fertile soil from which everything can grow within us.
Here we find a doorway to knowing: a knowing that arises from feeling all of life deep within.
Sadly enough, a lot of people have been caught off from or have forgotten the intelligence deep inside their bellies.
The belly has become an ‘object’: men have been bombarded with images of bellies who look like the motorblock of a car and womyn have been overexposed to bellies who look like bamboo sticks. We have been confronted with all kinds of diets to make us the best version of ourselves and have forgotten to ask the intelligence of our bodies: ‘What do you need?’
By no longer approaching the belly as an object that needs to look a certain way, but as a sacred space where we can rest, where we can listen, where we can be and where we can feel our way through life – we become more intimately connected with ourselves and with the guiding forces from the truth of our being.
Here you come home to yourself and in that, come home to the world. Here, you awaken the seeds from which you can grow and bloom into into the beautiful Self that you are.
