    Becoming attuned to my
    Sacred Womb I...
    learn that

    I AM DIVINE!

    Touching my womb in
    meditative state
    engulfing all aspects of my

    Wombman~ness
    She
    reveals to me she's...
    ready to Heal

    To God my Creator I pray...

    Touch~teach
    Purge~press
    release~restore me to a
    healthy, whole, peace filled

    Wombman

    desiring to heal and be healed of
    diseases~
    toxins~
    clots~ that keep
    lockin'...
    shockin' me

    Great mother breakin the shackles upon my
    Womb

    Womb wringin'
    semen soaked from...
    lovers
    users
    sexual abusers
    men cleansing themselves through me...
    won't allow it (again to) happen to thee

    Chantin womb prayers
    invoking
    Great Mother Afrakan Spirit
    "Ast/Isis" to my
    womb healing
    womb cleansing
    womb purifying
    womb restoration

    Executing my Sacred Womb Dance
    anointed with frank n mhyrr...
    my mind no longer a blurr

    To my Womb:

    My Sacred, beautiful womb I promise to love, honor and cherish you. I promise to protect you from abuse from others and self-inflicted. I promise to nurture and care for you, dialogue with and listen to you when you speak on what pains and pleases you. You are my mate, my companion for life and vow to treat you as such. I will give you the respect you deserve. We are ONE, restoring peace, balance and harmony within...we are WHOLE, partners on the path to
    Sacred Wombmanhood!!


    To my sistahs Sherykah, Alyce, Two-fish and Lystra: Thank you for introducing me to Sacred Woman!! Now in search of a Sacred Womb Circle. I will travel if need be to be inclusive.

    PeaceLoveN'Blessings in the Spirit of God and Wombmanhood!!
    Aminata

    This piece is "DUNAMIS"! YOU ARE WOMBMAN POWER! YOUR experiences are lesson-books for all sistaz (and brothaz). You confirm all that I've come to believe about why we are here, walking this earth.

    Your wombmanhood is sacred ~ you are the temple, most worthy! God did that and He continues to do a marvelous work in you.

    Thank you for sharing yourself ~ it was/is purely give & take. Your words inspire & edify beyond what you know.

    Peace & :heart: sis!

    Afri,

    I can't begin to view this from a "woman's perspective" as we both know, but I had to comment on how deep your scribes are especially when they're written from your heart and soul!!

    You are one talented and soulful sistah!!!

    :heart:

    This is why...

    I will always
    Profess to die
    For the cause
    Of Womanthread

    Nobody else
    Wears the fabric well
    And these old clothes
    Are sewn with the spirit
    Of Sista thread

    We quilt the finest
    Of linens
    We sistas of the cloth

    And we wear
    Our gender
    Well

    A Beautiful piece POETESS!!
    So conscious are your clothes :)

    Hyp is hyp to sacredman/sacredwoman - just a tad

    I have waited along time to hear a woman
    speak this way.

    To see woman realize she's a womban ...
    this is miraculous -- Afri ,
    I don't know you,
    but I'm proud of you.

    More ladies need to feel this way,
    no one in Toledo ever thinks of themselves
    this way - and it is ohhh so necessary.
