I shot this video in Antigua de Guatemala. She is “the” fountain of the city, in it’s central park. She carefully holds her breasts, from where water pours out.
For ancient cultures, women’s breasts are a symbol of abundance, vitality & love. They also represent the capacity to penetrate the world : our partners, friends, family, and co-workers.
Do you penetrate the world with an open heart, fully glowing your feminine power ? How generous are you, in the expression of who you really are ?
Abundance : Breasts represent the capacity to nourish ourselves and other human beings. Breasts use to be honoured and taken care of to produce the best milk for human beings in the first 3 years (yep ! at least 3 years) of life. During this period of 3 years, through contact with the breasts the child is cultivating the inner world with confidence, feeling supported emotionally and taken care of. In our “modern and developed” lives many women have lost touch and respect for this primordial and essential feminine gift. Mass media and corporations do not promote it neither. Yet science has proven the importance of breastfeeding for the mother, baby and whole society.
The way to cultivate abundant milk production is to massage the breasts, specially during pregnancy. There are specifics massage techniques, which are indeed sensual and powerful.
Vitality : Female’s breasts are terminals for many key organs in the body, such as the stomach, spleen, kidneys, liver and lungs among others. The nipples are sensitive “antenas” that have the capacity to sense the environment, “vibes” and other peoples’ emotions. Taking care of the breasts and paying kind attention help us to recirculate, transmute and expand the energy that is stored, stagnant or created in these powerful centers.
Practicing different feminine touch , it is possible to activate different qualities of the energy of the breasts :
– warm loving touch with full palm: heart center | quality : love and joy
– firmly holding the breast tissue while circling shoulders : spleen | quality : opens & fairness
– light finger tip touching, barely touching the skin : lungs | quality : courage & self-confidence
– gentle, kind and slow touching : kidneys | quality : gentleness & calmness
– firm, vigorous circles : liver | quality : kindness & generosity
Love : The breasts are considered the love center because they sit on either side of the heart. They are considered as the external representation of the heart’s energy (chi). The heart’s energy naturally flows from your heart center into the world. Women’s breasts have long been a symbol of divine feminine love and longevity.
Honouring our body, intuition and authentic beauty is challenging for us women living busy lives, in a society that praises the intellectual and where desire is almost a taboo word.
Even more challenging when we have disowned the goodness of our body and along our life we have developed an aggressive relationship with our body, either through food, addictions, neglect, obsessions, self judgment, comparison, etc
There is a path back home, back to wholeness, sacredness and beauty. It is the Ecstatic Wholeness Retreat, happening every year in a circle of incredibly inspiring women willing to return to the sacredness, sensuality and magic of the feminine body and soul.
