Uterus is the Latin word for Womb


Published on Reproductive system.

The womb (uterus) is an organ that expresses the woman’s femininity as a Mother. The womb is the protective shelter of the baby. Womb-related problems indicate that the feminine side of the woman, with regard to her Mother side, is being punished. Problems in the neck of the womb, also called cervical canal of uterus or cervix are not related to the same tensions at conscience level and are dealt with separately (see Cervix).

In this case, the Mother’s tension is the potential loss of a child. Potential loss! In other words, the feeling of loss is the issue here, not the actual loss. The feeling of actual loss affects the ovary (see Ovaries), not the womb.

We shall look at three womb-related problems: fibromas, thickening of the endometrium and cancer. In any case, the feeling of potential loss of the child remains, but there are subtleties. However, it is always a Mother’s issue, not a woman’s issue.

A fibroma (benign tumor) is a well-know condition that affects muscular and fibrous tissues in the womb, such as in the case of cancer in this area, to which we shall refer later. The tension is connected to undervaluation. It starts with a hole in the muscles of the womb, due to undervaluation, and it only becomes a fibroma when after it cicatrizes.

This could occur when the person feels a huge tension associated to incapacity to have children. In this case, the frustration and undervaluation may be huge.

The woman who feels she has lost the person who was going to be the father of her future kids may also develop fibromas.

It may also occur when the woman who had been told she was unable to conceive becomes pregnant for the first time. “I was told I was unable to have children, but I can, after all. I must take good care of this child who is on the way.” The person literally holds on to the child she finally managed to conceive and tries to give him as much space as possible. The body develops a hole (to increase the available space), which will turn into a fibroma following cicatrisation.

It also occurs quite frequently when the woman gets pregnant again after miscarriage or abortion. When the person had the miscarriage or the abortion, she was frustrated she was not having that baby she wanted, that had already been conceived and disappeared. When she becomes pregnant again, she holds on to him and gives him as much space as possible. The body develops the hole and the fibroma appears.

Basically, there is a simple explanation. The Mother felt a feeling of undervaluation and her body is trying to sort out the tension by creating more room for the child (by creating a hole and excavating the muscle).

Cancer in the muscle of the womb, which is much more rare than cervical cancer or cancer of the endometrium, must be analysed, from the perspective of the tension experienced, as a malignant fibroma. In other words, it shows the same tension as a fibroma, but in a much more intense way that is never verbalized.

The endometrium is the internal mucosal membrane of the womb.

When the woman is ovulating, the mucosal membrane swells in order to host the egg that is ready to be fecundated. After ovulation, if the egg is not fecundated, the thickening of the wall of the womb goes back to its normal size in the form of haemorrhage (menstruation). The thickening of the endometrium in a Mother shows that she feels that her daughter, son, daughter or son in law, or someone she feels as her own child, has moved away. That person has not disappeared but went away, and the mother has major communication problems with that person. She feels a potential loss of that person. She is going through a major frustration of not being able to get close to that son or daughter, whether her own flesh or by affinity. The fact that the endometrium does not go back to its original size indicates that the person would like, in a non-conscious manner, to be pregnant again, to create a new person. This happens despite the fact that her son or daughter never actually disappeared. This woman needs help to let her ego break free, to let go of the warrior side that is destroying her femininity. She is a very possessive woman who feels deeply hurt.

Endometrial cancer and cervical cancer (See Cervix) are the most common. Endometrial cancer indicates the tension was very big and that it involved ignominy in a family drama, whether with a true son or daughter or someone the person felt as a son or daughter, and that the tension was not verbalized. The drama may have been related to the sexuality of that true or virtual son or daughter. That person may have had a dishonourable sexual problem. For instance, she could have been raped. In this case, the tension is: “How shameful! This is not something one does!” The “not something one does!” is very important here. It is an inner cry (not verbalized) that expresses the feeling of ignominy. If the person does not verbalize and brings what she felt out in the open, and, instead, keeps it to herself, the tension she feels projects itself in the womb, the protecting sanctuary of babies, like a cancer.

This ignominy tension in a family drama may also relate to the rape, in a figurative sense, of that son or daughter. For example, the person may have felt that the freedom that son or daughter had to be what he or she wants to be was castrated. The fact that the Mother was unable to avoid it happening and had to watch as an impotent witness causes enormous tension in her.

It is important to help the person verbalize the tension she felt. When she starts doing it and talks about her pain to someone, she will normally haemorrhage.
