The Rite of the Womb
Acknowledgement - www.theriteofthewomb.com
This lineage of women through the jungle medicine has given us
the 13th rite of the Munay-Ki: The Rite of the Womb.
Marcela moved closer to the fire as a lineage of women came forth, laying hands on her and helping with the release of that fear to the fire. Later, dancing in celebration, these women told her, “Now you have understanding and you have the right platform to give this message to the world. We’ll be near you and we’ll keep teaching you.”
For ten years, this lineage of women strengthened and supported Marcela in her shamanic training and stood by her side as she led journeys to the jungle and to the Andes of Peru and Chile.
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.
The women proceeded to transfer great wisdom about life into her body. In the transmission, jungle plants carefully chosen by the women, gave Marcela bright green juice, pouring it through every vein in her 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.”
Marcela was told that the very first person she needed to offer the rite to was her mother. And so she visualized her mother in the space and felt their wombs become one. She whispered the rite to her mother and saw the vibrant green of her own womb transferred to hers.
Marcela continued to “receive instructions” on how to bring this to wider audiences and on October 11th she launched the 13th Rite of the Womb with the women at Omega - all of whom are now able to offer the rite.
On October 30, Marcela wrote this letter to the women who have received the rite:
I am so grateful for each one of you who received the Rite of the Womb and I am also so grateful that you want to share it with other women.
After the events at Omega and Joshua Tree, I feel complete with the task of birthing this rite to the world.
Now it belongs to all women who are open to receive it, and also to those men who find it essential to their healing.
Now it is up to the lineage to keep growing this healing to the four corners of the world, and in this way, bring healing to our Earth.
And now you are the lineage as much as I am the lineage. We are becoming women who freed themselves from suffering.
Keep nurturing the rite until there is no more fear or pain in your womb.
Much love always,
