Sacred Woman by Queen Afua
A book on self healing
I took a journey with my womb last night and this morning. Both times I cried, this book made me touch inside myself in ways I have feared. I’m only 50 pages in... but it made me conscious of the parts of me I’ve hidden. Of the pain I’ve carried in my womb. How often do we bury our pains and push forward? How comfortable are we with our own bodies? How can I have given myself freely all these years to my lovers but never to myself? I took the first bath I’ve taken in years this morning and touched all over my body. Specifically my womb, I told her how much I loved her. I meditated this morning and prayed over my womb. I asked questions, I cried the answers. I didn’t even realize I had all this hurt still inside. Suffocating, peeping out in moments where I was depressed and angry for no reason. I’ve taken a pause from focusing on business, I’m focusing on healing me this quarantine. Unapologetically loving myself and facing my demons. The demon of solitude that was planted in me from early trauma. This book is a must read, take what you need from it. I didn't apply all the concepts or agree with all the practices but I got enough from it to create tools for my spiritual journey. It’s more than a book, it’s exactly as it says: A Guide Back To You.
