Whew! Today is in fact a new day. I am in Santa Cruz following too many story lines happening to people not here with me, but they are all important to me.
I have friends whose homes are now lost in Calaveras County fire and since I can't get to them I am posting remedies for mucous membranes but staying present and happy while I pray for them.
So I am also surrendering into the ocean, dolphins, sea lions, iron man, contestants, and visiting herb shops to make teas and test combinations for the varying degrees of lung, chest, sinus, migrane, intestinal and assisted dear ones with sexual traumas.
I figure I can help half with the one tea I posted on facebook earlier (if you want that lung remedy friend me on facebook.)
So this blog is on sexual trauma.
This combination of herbs and alternative remedy has roots in healing sexual dysfunction in women around menopause who had pain in their vaginal canal which released painful memories about repressed molestations, sexual assault, self esteem and body issues that resulted from the arising consciousness of sexuality and orgasm at too young an age with little to no guidance.
So many women explored curiosity about orgasm (hiding because as we all know it feels so fucking good to orgasm and our young brains are like...what was that?) and tried to understand sexuality either by closing up or letting it all out.
I was molested at 3, masterbated as a natural curiosity about my body and had a religious mother who taught me it was a sin so every time I went there, and of course I did because orgasm is a gift, but because of this conflict I experienced painful separation and guilt. Happily I have now freed myself of all that and have found my personal sexual freedom within the loving arms of sacred space...and have at the same time cleared up chronic conditions associated with accepting my human nature and God given gifts.
Tea: kava, rose hip, wild yam, spearmint, marshmallow root (Just cause everything is more pleasant with a cup of tea :) no there are herbs for hormones and relaxing and love and joy in there. Enjoy!
Featured herb: Slippery Elm Bark
After learning about slippery elm bark I have been wondering why it isn't handed to all women at menstruation and why isn't each daughter taught to explore her canal (no not sexually you pervert, but informationally...as in its yours you can touch it but everyone else must ask permission.)
We used to have an amazing indigenous ceremony and tradition called RED TENT during which all the menstruating women would gather to learn folklore, medicine, the power of the feminine and their connenction to Earth Magic, sexuality, self-image, open hearted communication and now...we leave it to someone else and just hand out condoms or imagine it isn't happening...well imagine a world where a woman is taught from an early age to honor and respect her procreative powers and the important of healthy touch.
Why she would get to know what she is made of, what the inside of her is made for and she wouldnt be waiting for a man or doctor to show her.
I firmly believe you should know your body better than anyone else, love it and be able to communicate what does and does not work for you so you can experience complete surrender.
Who can you trust more than yourself until you find a partner who actually cares and listens to how your body works and honors it?
From an educational standpoint without the overtones of sexual fulfillment or orgasm but literally as an inform yourself about your body kind of a thing. This includes the anus by the way and the double sided barrier between rectom and vaginal opening.
Anyways started to offer self massage with this herb after my own healing of infection and restration of balance. Passed it on to the most important women in my life including my menopausal mom. It is something a person could try and the techniques, that to some might be considered foreplay if done by a man, but from the mouth of one woman to another (as in this is my experience but i realize how that sounds...hahah.)...just make sure you check out every nook and cranny from front seam to back seam at entrance and up rib by rib looking for sore points or anything that ignites an emotional response gently tap like you would the tackiness of tape or gently press like you would to check soil of a plant to see if it is needing water. Reset bioelectrical field or memory imprintation with loving touch and repatterning of the experience that happens in the canal restoring the sacredness of your space. Its yours, you are the only one that does not need permission to touch it.
If a man is reading this and wants to do this for your beloved like my dad did for my mom...this is how they restored safety and sacred space between them after surviving prostate cancer and a mastectomy. (Gotta figure out how it all works again. ) Remember it isnt about your entry this is a healing session about her release and surrender. Check out David Deida Dear Lover for more description from lover to woman. My parents got impatient a couple times, which is awesome, but always remember to pick up where you left off. Full exploration, inquiry and presence. Everything is working fine now so....mom's pain is gone...give it a try...(sorry mom...have to tell the story :)
So slippery elm bark is super powerful for releasing you from guilt and shame via the pleasure portal and sensory receptors lining the internal organs. also spiritually speaking can release you from religious overtones that teach masturbation or touching your own body is sinful...what? Ok. Reach out and touch yourselves. God said so. He made you that way. How loving and awesome of him. If it got stimulated inadvertently (as in not by your choice) in an unhealthy way it is still a gift and we should all learn to appreciate it again. If you can't fathom doing it yourself, offer it to your lover and ask him to help you heal past wounds or use it as lube or? well you get the drift...
So....speaking of the pleasure portal which includes the uterus and bladder, (seat of sexual energy) and somewhere in there the trigger for amrita cleansing healing waters...other internal organs benefit from slippery elm bark because it coats the tract but also, much like the herb via the vagina will help with yeast
infections, bacterial imbalances and is said to reverse the polarity of syphilus, this herb taken internally will help with digestive tract issues . Its anti-spasmodic and anti-viral.
Basically it returns mucous membranes to homeostasis and whatever needs to happen does. because it knows how to communicate via your own mucous whether it be digestive, procreative, or nasal head chest related. its smart! they are so much alike its like they are the same...only one is a plant and has no memory of trauma so it passes on the easy going gene.
1 T in about 1/3 cup water with med hot water stirred with prayer and love for like 5 minutes and a
Prayer of gratitude: Thank you Creator God for restoring my body to balance. For helping me feel safe to be vulnerable and open in the deepest parts of my body. Thank you for helping me forgive everything and return to this one moment of perfected bliss. I am so grateful I am wonderfully made and everything we need to enjoy life resides deep inside. Thank you for freeing me from the concept of sin and teaching me how to trust the integrity of my inner knowing about what is best, healthy and good for me. Allow me to ground down into my body and allow all attachments to sufferings to float away. tell a happy story, plant seeds of hope. May I transmute stories of pain to ones of presence, joy and gratitude, surrendering to the orgasm that is my one amazing life. Showing compassion for others but having boundaries well defined so that I can sink into the vibrational reality i am in for my personal growth and happiness now. Send this joy and beauty to those in need and allow me the peace of mind to be in peace and witnessing miracles unfold in my personal life.
Something like that...basically pray your intentions in there.
Ayahuasca is an excellent colon digestive tract cleanse this is the way to get the same level of consciousness in your rectum and pelvic area through touch, exploration, massage, herbal folklore, conscious intention, tantric prayer power associated with orgasm, without the hallucinogenic trip. Ok happy drinking...massaging, or whatever you choose to do with it. haha...don't tell me :)unless its an awesome story...then..oh course I wanna talk story. its one of my favorite things to do.
Incidentally...somehow drinking the brew from a metaphysical level also touches the deep places where we repress shame so let it go man and poop that shit out. Ok. And when you massage clean everything out with love.
By the way don't use if you are pregnant but I am wondering about using it during birth to stretch the membrane like some do with castor oil...or something...not sure wait on me for that. Ok Love you...take care and be loving to yourself and those who surround you. xoxoox
Maybe my doula sisters can consult with me about that last part...Try it on yourselves and share your experience. Ok. Thanks!
