The Mother Wound is the collective trauma of womanhood that's passed down through the generations from mother to daughter. It shows up as jealousy, comparison and competition between women, eating disorders and disordered eating disguised as dieting, low self-esteem and negative body image, strained relationships between mothers and daughters, shame around the body, sex, and sexuality, the inability to experience orgasm, fear of pleasure and intimacy, and a profound longing to belong shared by all women.
It is the unresolved pain of abuse, sexual assault, womb imbalances, miscarriage, and infertility. It is the wholesale denial of a woman's right to be fully self-expressed on her own terms. It is pervasive and insidious. But instead of talking about it and calling it out, we're pushing it further and further down into the shadows. And we know all too well what happens when you hide stuff there.
It also includes the trauma of living in a system of imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchy that has exploited the bodies, labor, and children of women, especially women of color. Women of color have the added burden of being oppressed by the social constructs of race and a color caste system on top of gender, sex, and sexuality.
I'm Melissa Danielle, and I'm creating a safe space for women to show up in the fullness of womanhood, in sisterhood, collaboration and community for the change the world needs and has been waiting for.
In my own life, the Mother Wound has shown up as self-sabotage, playing small, and having a fractured relationship with my mother. It has affected me physically, financially, and in ways I've yet to discover.
Healing the Mother Wound is a continuous journey of discovery and expansion. And since this process can become so uncomfortable, you may find yourself wanting to give up and return to the comfort of what's familiar, even if it's not what you want. To help you keep up and keep going, I invite you to lead with desire and orgasm.
When we clarify and name our desires, we have a place to return to when we need to be reminded of why we started this work. Orgasm is the essence of womanhood, the catalyst for creative expression and birth. An orgasmic woman is a turned on woman, and when she embodies her turn on, she fills herself all the way up and gives of herself from the overflow. By recognizing orgasm as the life force energy, women can learn to channel this energy for pleasure, power, and the manifestation of her desires.
Through my own process of recovery, I learned that there's a limit to what you can do on your own. Recovering from the Mother Wound requires all hands on deck. Depending on your experiences, you may need any combination of doctors, therapists, healers, coaches, and a support network to help you get unstuck and move forward in your healing.
The health coaching relationship can be much more than getting you to follow and stick with yet another weight loss plan. Because that's not what you need. If you're an ambitious, creative woman over 35 who's ready to stretch into the discomfort of the Mother Wound so you can heal and show up more powerfully in your life, I invite you to book a session with me.
As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I help women over 35 heal their Mother Wounds so they can
- discover the power of orgasm to heal and dissolve creative, emotional, and financial blocks
- prepare for pregnancy/adoption as a first time mother
- have the best sex of their lives
- learn how to choose the best foods to eat without dieting and deprivation
- make time for more creative expression
- connect with nature as a space for healing
- discover the pleasure of physical activity beyond exercising to lose weight
