The womb is a space that gets to small for us at some point. We are growing, bigger and we need to leave the space in order to expand.
If I look at live I find the process of growing out of the womb repeated several times. And it shows us the principals of the process of growing.
- it gets tight and we start feeling that we need more space
- a desire to grow is bigger than the desire to stay in the comfort of the known
- the passage to the next space involves challenging processes
- once we arrive at the new stage of live we need to learn every step as we have started a new chapter and the old has finished it’s purpose.
We all leave the womb at some stage and we all can see it makes total sense and is inevitable.
There are many times we are at stages in live where we need to leave our safety zone in order to grow and we can’t see that it is inevitable and useful. We easily feel frustrated about the challenges that come hand in hand with it.
I believe it helps to understand that this is a process of growth and the beginning of a new chapter. New, exciting, adventurous, but also fragile, vulnerable and insecure.
This happens when we enter from childhood into puberty, from puberty into adulthood, when we become parents or when we enter other live commitments (marriage/partnership/projects….). There is always a process of the old has become to small.
The process of birth is when the womb is helping us to enter the new world. I believe it’s the child that signals “I want to get out” and the womb that supports the wish.
Live is miraculous and wonderful. And it helps to see me to see this perfection.
So thanks for letting me share this today 😉
