The Rites of the Womb
- 13th Rite of the Munay-Ki
Nearly two hundred women gathered in ceremony at the Omega Institute on Saturday, October 11, 2014 to be the first to receive an energetic transmission -a rite- from a lineage of women from the jungles of Peru.
With a half-circle of men drumming and chanting on the perimeters of the room, each woman walked a metaphorical path through the fallopian tubes and into the uterus, where they were met by a female shaman who administered the “13th of the Munay-Ki”–The Rite of the Womb–intended to heal all women of the suffering they carry in their belly.
Having received the seeds of healing, each woman then proceeded down the ceremonial birth canal into new life–greeted and supported in love by men.
Marcela Lobos was the first to receive the 13th Rite in March of 2014—a twelve-year journey she never could have foreseen in 2002, when she had a dream that began it all.
Two years later, while organizing her room, one of her journals fell to the floor and opened directly to the page describing her dream. After a cursory read of it, she set it back on the shelf to focus on her tasks when a brutal knock came at her door. As happens with those with post-traumatic-stress-syndrome, Marcela was instantly transported into her past of war, terror and oppression and she spiraled into an uncontrollable panic.
Everything looked black to Marcela, but as she applied the principles she’d learned, a tangible light filled the room and surrounded her. The banging continued but her terror quickly began to recede. It was then that the four midwives from her dream appeared out of the hearth and said to her: “Now it is time to deliver that dead baby.” In that moment Marcela understood that her “dead baby” was the fear she had carried deep in her belly for almost three decades.
But it wasn’t until March of 2014 that Marcela was told it was time to share the rite of the womb.
She had taken a group of women to the female shamans of the Shipibo Nation in the Amazon jungle. During a shamanic journey with them, Marcela was met again by the four midwives who told her: “Marcela, your womb is ready to offer the 13th Rite of the Munay-Ki for women. We’re going to give you a transmission.”
And the women proceeded to transfer great wisdom about life into her body. In the transmission, jungle plants were carefully chosen by the women and then poured in the form of a green juice in every vein of Marcela’s body. The women then took this green juice to her womb turning it into a neon sphere of energy.
“This was a purification of my body and psyche,” Marcela has said. “And in giving me the medicine, they gave me the rite, which came as words, and I was told to give the rite to as many women as possible. That it would heal men. It would heal all of life.”
They said to Marcela:
“The womb is not a place to store fear and pain.
The womb is to create and give birth to life.”
Since that day many women, and men, have shared and received the Rites of the Womb. Advancing their own healing and helping those around them to advance, or step into the path of change, evolution and growth.
Each Womb Keeper will have received the Rite and any further transmissions that are intuitively integrated and in alignment with their own unique gifts. They then are able to hold space and facilitate for those who also wish to receive the Rites, providing a safe, supportive and sacred space.
Many women & men carry the pain, fear, shame, guilt and resentment from their mothers, grandmothers and the female ancestors before them. Some feel the wounds of past life or had traumatic experiences in this lifetime that block their joy and happiness and prevent them from connecting in a healthy way with their feminine power & the women in their lives.
The root, and effects, of womb trauma can present it self in a variety of ways,such as sexual abuse (giving or receiving), promiscuity, lack of sex drive, lack of connection with partner or in them-self, fear of sex, detachment, gynaecological illnesses, birth trauma, difficult pregnancies, hysterectomies, depression, anxiety, guilt, shame, lack of creativity, caught in abusive or toxic patterns and cycles.
These causes and effects can be experienced within our own lifetime either from direct experience, or inherited from a past life or ancestral karma. When you receive this Rite, you are healing the energetic imprint that has been working this story of fear, shame, pain and trauma, which can now be released, making way for a new story of creativity, joy, happiness and abundant opportunities.
This Rite is not restricted to woman, men too can receive this Rite as they too can inherit womb trauma from a past life, ancestral karma, difficulties whilst being birthed, their mother experiencing a difficult pregnancy, their wife or partner having/carrying trauma of some kind, impotence, lack of self worth or confidence, lack of creativity. When a man receives this Rite it will work with the feminine energy field within him, healing relationships with the women in his life, female ancestors and creating a new energetic blueprint that will enable him to create a new story of passion, connectivity, compassion and Joy.
