Nurturing Your Body and Soul with Queen Afua's 'Sacred Woman
Welcome, Soulfully Healthy Living community! Today, we're going to talk about Sacred Woman, a powerful and transformative approach to healing the feminine body, as taught by Queen Afua in her book "Sacred Woman: A guide to healing the feminine body".
Sacred Woman is a holistic approach to health and wellness that is rooted in ancient African healing traditions. It is based on the idea that the female body is sacred and has the power to heal itself when given the proper support and care.
In her book, Queen Afua shares her personal journey to healing and introduces a comprehensive system for women to achieve optimal health and well-being. This system includes:
Spiritual purification: This involves connecting with your inner self and releasing negative emotions and past traumas.
Healthy eating: Queen Afua emphasizes the importance of a plant-based diet that is rich in whole foods and avoids processed and artificial ingredients.
Herbal medicine: She advocates for the use of natural remedies, such as herbs and essential oils, to support the body's natural healing processes.
Movement and exercise: Queen Afua encourages women to find movement practices that resonate with their bodies, such as yoga or dance.
Sacred space: This involves creating a physical and emotional environment that supports healing and self-care.
The Sacred Woman approach is not just about physical healing, but also about reconnecting with the divine feminine within. It is about empowering women to take control of their health and well-being and live in alignment with their true selves.
Practitioner Michelle is a shining example of how the principles of Sacred Woman can be applied to support healing. She struggled with a large fibroid, and conventional medical treatments didn't offer her the relief she was seeking. In fact, her first surgeon discussed myomectomy without even examining her. This was frightening and Practitioner canceled the procedure. It wasn't until she discovered Sacred Woman and began incorporating its principles into her life that she experienced true healing. She focused on spiritual purification, healthy eating, herbal medicine, and movement practices, all of which helped her to reconnect with her body and its innate healing abilities. Through this approach and finding a doctor open to holistic health care with a philosophy of using the least invasive procedure as possible, she was able to pass her fibroid through her cervix where it was easily removed. Her experience is a testament to the power of Sacred Woman and its ability to support women in achieving optimal health and well-being.
