Womb Stories

womb stories

I went to Luray Caverns with my sweet family recently. It is like being in the womb. Deep in the womb stories of the earth. There was a moment when I looked up and saw a birthing canal. Complete with a clitoris. This is the image that is featured here. Can you see it?

In the cavern, I saw representations of male and female anatomy everywhere, in the gentle folds of the stalactites and erect structures of the stalagmites. They seem to grow out of one another. Nature mimics life everywhere. It made me want to sing and bow down to Pachamama.

I am including two video clips below. Listen if it is your will. A man named Leland Sprinkle in 1956 figured out how to amplify the notes of the stalactites to make a Great Stalacpipe Organ. The sound is absolutely mystical.

The other video clip is of a spot where the stalactites reflect into the water below. It’s so perfect that you can barely tell it’s a reflection.

Pure magic. Being inside the belly of the mother. It reminded me of a moment last week when I was doing yoni steams with a group of dear ones in my studio. We were talking about how our wombs hold stories. And how we gestate inside of the stories of our mothers, and are birthed through the canals of our mothers' wombs. We literally pass through the stories of our mothers to be born.I thought about this as I stood in the cave. Underneath the earth. Inside of the womb of the mother. Inside of the stories of our Mother for which we may never have words.
