In December of 2013, I got in a really bad car accident. I was hit by someone that was speeding so hard that my car flipped over 3 times. I opened my eyes and was upside down in my car. I managed to get myself out of the seat belt and I was pulled out of my car by people that were in the street. It has been 6 months since that experience and a lot has happened. I was grateful that I did not get major injuries from the car accident. I started tending to my body immediately with herbs. I feel very grateful to my body for recovering so rapidly. I am also thankful to the beautiful community of friends and family that took care of me and helped me recover. Although many parts of my body have recovered, my womb is still re-balancing itself from the shock and physical impact of the accident. I have gotten my moon cycle only once since December. I've tried massage, limps, baths, herbal tea and everything has slowly help the inflammation go down but not my cycle. During the May Full Moon, I got inspired to make a massage oil just for my womb. I made it out of castor oil, rose, lavender, chamomile, comfrey, and other herbs that I have special connections too. Today is New Moon in Cancer and I'm excited to press my oil so I can use it. The new moon is about shedding, letting go, releasing, going into the darkness to face those parts of ourselves that we fear, that we want to let go, that we no longer need. Since the New Moon is in Cancer, it is specifically connected to our emotions and to the Moon which is undoubtedly connected to water as well since the moon rules over las agues de la vida y de la tierra. I finally feel ready to move on from that experience and let go of the fear it cause me and my body.
What I have learned is to really move with the waves of the experiences life brings us in the same way I swim with waves in the ocean. Allow them to take me where I need to go and be humbled by the messages the journey brings. Two days ago, I got a limpia from my mentor and maestro Estela Roman. She hella adjusted my ovaries because she told me they had dropped from the car accident. She reminded me that healing from that experience will take. She told me to continue taking care of myself and to be patient with my own body's process. She also told me to continue bathing in herbs to help the inflammation that is still present in my body. I share this oil recipe so that you can use it yourself or share it with someone that might need it. You can use other carrier oils that call to you and other herbs that you might connect with. Im excited to start my herbal bathing ritual this summer and to massage myself with this amazing oil tonight. I'll be making a slave out of this oil as well. If you are interested in a salve just contact me.
