The Rite of the Womb has it’s origins in the jungles of Peru. Marcela Lobos was the first to receive the 13th Rite in March of 2014—a twelve-year journey she never could have foreseen in 2002, when she had a dream that began it all.
In this dream, she was pregnant with a dead baby. Having grown up in Chile, a country of dictatorship and terrorism, Marcela was always in fear and in her dream, terror nearly paralyzed her as four midwives in white helped deliver her dead baby while men with guns waged war outside the door. She awakened, startled and shaken, sensing that the dream was significant, but she had no understanding its meaning.
Two years later, while organizing her room, one of her journals fell to the floor and opened directly to the page describing her dream. After a cursory read of it, she set it back on the shelf to focus on her tasks when a brutal knock came at her door. As happens with those with post-traumatic-stress-syndrome, Marcela was instantly transported into her past of war, terror and oppression and she spiraled into an uncontrollable panic.
She’d been studying the Medicine Wheel with Four Winds Society and heard a voice say, “Marcela, apply what you know.” Just then, a female jaguar spirit appeared. “I will teach you the way of the luminous warrior. Focus on your light.”
Everything looked black to Marcela, but as she applied the principles she’d learned, tangible light filled the room and surrounded her. The banging continued but her terror quickly began to recede. It was then that the four midwives from her dream appeared out of the hearth and said to her: “Now it is time to deliver that dead baby.” In that moment Marcela understood that her “dead baby” was the fear she had carried deep in her belly for almost three decades.
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.”
And the women proceeded to transfer great wisdom about life into her body. In the transmission, jungle plants were carefully chosen by the women and then poured in the form of a green juice in every vein of Marcela’s 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.
Become a member of the lineage and a Womb Keeper yourself
On the day of August the 18th in 2016 I did the Rite of the Womb in Almere with Ursula Aerts, a Womb Keeper. As she initiated all the women who were present, they also became Womb Keepers themselves, and give the lineage through to other women who are in need of Womb and Creative Source Healing. Healing your womb is helping you to create positive feelings and productivity in your life, and makes you aware that you should not live in fear but in joy, peace and love.
I’m since August 2016 also a Womb Keeper. So I can give the lineage directly to you, according to the guidelines that I received on my initiation. If you are in need for this ritual, if you have any questions about the ritual, please feel free to contact me and I will get back to you soon!
