A woman’s body goes through many changes throughout her lifetime. One of those changes is the waning or lack of connection — mental, physical, and spiritual — to her lower abdominal, pelvic floor, and general womb area.
There are several reasons why this decrease in connection may happen, some of which are: having children, the linea alba tearing or stretching, a groin hernia, sexual trauma, lack of sex, muscle weakening, aging, past-life trauma, mental aversion, and neglect.
No matter the reason for the disconnect, I offer this holistic prescription — therapies that address the mind, body, and spirit — to help any sister who may have use for it to reconnect, strengthen, and heal the relationship to her womb area.

The Physical Component
Physical disconnection to the lower abs, pelvic floor, and womb area can stem from pregnancy, extreme physical fitness, injury, surgery, disease, and other reasons. Here are two examples of exercises that can help reconnect and improve neuromuscular efficiency in this part of the body.
One of the best ways to reconnect physically to your lower abdomen and pelvic floor is to do the Kegel exercise. The Kegel is an exercise to strengthen your PC muscles (pubococcygeus) also called your pelvic floor or pelvic diaphragm named after its inventor, gynecologist Dr. Arnold Kegel.
The exercise is fairly simple, but it does take some getting use to. The more you do this exercise, the better your motor control will be of your pelvic floor, but since it’s quite difficult to isolate these muscles, you end up doing isometric contractions of the surrounding muscles and so you inadvertently improve your connection and control over your lower abs and butt muscles too.

Another helpful exercise is to do palpitations and gentle massage on your lower abs and womb region. This method increases the mind to body awareness, improving your mind’s ability to recognize this area. Through touch, while mentally thinking of this part of your body will help the mechanisms that send and receive information to the brain. The more often you send these signals the better the effect. Perform this treatment a few times a week. An optimal time to do this is before bedtime as it will help you relax priming you for a goodnight sleep.
When your brain is able to communicate to your lower abs, pelvic floor, and womb area more efficiently, the better your relationship is to the area which goes on to improve health, function, and movement. A lot of what happens inside the body goes on without your knowledge or conscious help, but like a manager to a project, you can provide guidance and a “list of expectations” (what you want your body to do.) Your ability to influence your body depends on how “aware” and “connected” you are to it. Improve your connection and awareness and increase your ability to guide your body to optimal health.
The Mental Component
Our mind is a powerful influencer. Thoughts and past experiences that are replayed in our mind influence the health of our body. Stress from bad memories, trauma, and fear of any sort can manifest itself into physical ailments. It’s best to heal these experiences so that you can give your body the best chance at being healthy.
If there is an experience or thought in particular that comes to mind that is affecting your relationship to your lower abs, pelvic region, and general womb area, then my suggestion is to find a doctor or therapist that specializes in that area to help you deal and heal the troublesome thought or experience. In my last post, I spoke of Matrix Reimprinting as one of the therapies that I use to help me heal bad thoughts, traumatic experiences, and limiting beliefs.

The health of a woman’s womb is vitally important. Not only is it the place that nurtures and carries new life, it’s an area where many women feel is what makes them a woman. A woman’s abdomen, uterus, and vagina are not just arbitrary physical parts of the body. These physical aspects of us are special, sensitive, and have great significance. Care for this area of your body like you would care for your daughter’s body.
The Spiritual Component
I present the following 10 minute meditation on connecting to your lower abdomen, sacral, and womb area. It’s easy and gentle and can be done anywhere you feel comfortable relaxing. In the video I use crystals to aid in my focus and to help raise the vibrational frequency of the heart and sacral chakras — it is not necessary to use them — but they are helpful (and pretty!)
This holistic prescription that I have offered — treatments that focus on the mind, body, and spirit — can contribute to the healing process of reconnecting to your lower abdominal, pelvic, and womb region. It’s very important to note that it does not replace the advice or help of doctors, psychologists, psychotherapists, or any other Western medicine. Holistic prescriptions should be used as complementary aid to existing measures that are provided by licensed doctors or therapists.
