What does your Cervix Say?

Have you ever wanted your best friend on tap 24/7? What if you had a direct open phone line with truth, with yourself, on tap? An innate wisdom and sacredness that knows which choices to make, how to move, how to eat, how to sleep, how to breathe, how to walk, how to dress. A wisdom that knows how to respond all of the time, in any given situation, even in new situations that spring up unexpectedly – and, it was absolutely free of charge? Wouldn’t that be remarkable?

Well ladies, you do, we all do!

The cervix is something all women have yet it is not an area of a woman’s body that is commonly talked about in our daily lives.

The cervix seems to be mysterious and mystical – not just to us as women but also to men too. On a practical level the cervix is the neck of our uterus. It is where the swabs are taken for our regular pap smears, which takes samples of cervical cells to check for abnormalities. Connecting to our ovaries, uterus, breasts, and cervix supports us to connect to the natural stillness we are as women which we miss while we are running around in the busy-ness of life. But when we don’t connect to our cervix, it is like the anchor is missing: a fundamental part of who we are as women is brushed aside.

In developing a relationship with our physical body and listening to its signs we can connect to all parts of our body: our toes, our fingers, our breasts, and our cervix. If we are tired, or have over eaten, or not taken care of ourselves, our body shows us, for example, with indigestion, or aches and pains.

As women, energetically our cervix is the place where we hold our sacredness.

The cervix resides deep within our physical body and, when we develop a relationship with it, it can show us everything, by us simply asking ‘what does my cervix say?’.

In consciously choosing to connect to the cervix we cannot ignore what is truly going on in our bodies and in our lives.

More so, we cannot deny the woman that we truly are, or deny what our body needs in that given moment. It is a beautiful compass that is our deepest best friend, and it always knows everything. Connecting to the cervix also brings a deeper acceptance of not only who we are, but where we are in our life.

There is no judgment, simply a deeper knowing and understanding – how beautiful is that?!

The connection with our cervix is also deeply practical – two real daily living examples here highlight the precision and beautiful daily guide the cervix is for women:

“I started polishing my nails again, and when I don’t connect to my cervix it is like the nail polish breaks off easily because I am not moving my hands delicately, yet when I connect to my cervix that really reflects that how I’m using my hands differently and the nail polish stays on longer”.

“There is a lot to change in my practical day to day living, where by asking ‘what does my cervix say?” it can lead the way. For example my cervix takes me shopping – it’s very precise in anything from groceries, to household items or clothes. Now I realise I need a new mattress, new duvet cover and new towels to honour me and my cervix is very precise in what will nurture me.”

In building a relationship with our cervix, and playfully living life and asking ‘what does my cervix say?” in any given situation, it is the best friend we can ever have. It is a beautiful conversation to start amongst ourselves as women. So, maybe the first question is:

What does your cervix say?

  1. It is through us women connecting to and building a loving relationship with our sacred womanly parts, that we contribute to the evolution of mankind.

  2. When we were first introduced to the fact that as women we can actually connect to our cervix and all our female parts, I struggled to feel anything. To say there was a numbness was an understatement. But now things have started to change and I can feel a lot and I put that down to having had Sacred Movement sessions with three different gorgeous women, practising on my own, with a friend, my daughters or my husband.

    1. Julie thank you for your sharing – I too can say that when asked to feel my cervix it is like my answer is ‘what cervix?’ which certainly exposes the fact that I have numbed myself out and not given myself permission to feel it (unless there is pain or aching that is present – then of course I know the cervix we are talking about!)….there is much for me to embrace in this aspect and learn to fine tune the feelings that are there, but I am not letting myself be aware of. Thank you!

  3. Brilliant blog Jane and Monika, learning to re-connect to sacredness is a beautiful journey and this is something we all have access to. Our world would be a very different place if we all live from our sacredness.

  4. Connecting to our sacredness from our cervix we realise we do not have to push or go into drive to get something done. When we feel our sacredness it is all there, if we stayed with this connection never would we need to look outside for reward or recognition.

    1. Surrender is key. Which is pretty much the opposite to everything around us! It’s almost as if life is set up to keep us away from our sacredness….

  5. I will practise that nail-polish one. I notice also that my nails break more easy when I am more hard in my movements. They show me to be much more delicate with myself which naturally makes me feel more my sacredness.

  6. Imagine living next to neighbours for 30 years and never even saying hello. It would be absurd. Yet we ignore our body for longer, no matter how crucial the messages it has to share.

    1. Great point Joseph – to ignore the relationships that are reflected and offered to us in our lives (be it with others or with our own body) is like saying no to opportunities for growth and evolution.

  7. It feels delicious to connect to my cervix and it may sound a bit weird yet it is a very beautiful feeling. A feeling of being deeply settled and knowing what is true and what is not from there.

  8. What a gift to support us in all the practicalities of life if we allow it, our cervix is always there as our compass through life if we are only willing to connect to ourselves.

  9. Our body is like a wise best friend, just waiting for us to connect and listen to it, ‘In building a relationship with our cervix, and playfully living life and asking ‘what does my cervix say?” in any given situation, it is the best friend we can ever have’.

  10. Thank you for the beautiful reminders in your blog to be aware of and in connection to the cervix, womb, ovaries and breasts. I felt such a sense of reconnecting to my inner grace when I felt these areas of my body, it’s reminded me to reconnect more to myself and to the beauty I am as a woman, which does get lost a bit in the busyness of my life. A very nurturing read.

  11. There is an innate wisdom in us both men and women which we often ignore, yet it’s there on tap ready and waiting for us to stop and listen … and to ask those honest questions about what our bodies are truly showing us.

    1. When we stop and listen to our body this supports us in so many ways, with health, with relationships, and with life, we hold the wisdom within and it is there for us to tap into at any time.

  12. All I knew of my cervix before Sacred Movement with Natalie Benhayon, was that it needed to dilate to 10cm for my babies to be birthed. Which I now know from connecting more deeply over many years to my cervix, that is a limited awareness of the sacredness we hold. If we listened to our cervix as women I feel there would not be the lack of self-worth, anxiety, self-abuse and illness and disease that there is now.

  13. Connecting to every part of my body including my cervix is an opportunity to deepen my relationship to self. Every part of my body has something to offer me to bring a deeper level of love for self and for another.

  14. If we don’t know where our cervix is, before we google it why not just allow our body to guide us. Say hi cervix and see what we feel. It may sound funny as our mind might want to know right away the knowledge, but when allowed, our body can show us truth that the internet cannot give us.

  15. Sacred Movement, is a very supporting modality and a way of moving that has made me very aware of my cervix and the sacredness that lives inside my body. Being in connection with my cervix, my sacredness, it lately has changed how I walk and how I am with myself and the quality I reflect to others. Sometimes I shy away from this powerful connection but I always can choose to come back by connecting with my whole body and feeling the sacredness deep within me. What does my cervix say may sound weird but in truth it is our compass for every situation we are in.

  16. A great article reminding me about the sacredness that my cervix holds, when connecting to it and the power it holds I understand by your examples how we can then move our bodies with delicateness allowing our cervix to guide us.

  17. Clearly I do not have a cervix myself – but I can fully appreciate the wisdom that is available through the fullness of our bodies and do so. It is so very different to the mind based intellect where beliefs and knowings are stored mentally. Bodily wisdom has solidness to it, a sense of immovability, which is a different kind of knowing altogether. It is a wonderful thing to reconnect with.

  18. To anyone reading this for the first time who has not considered this before this could seem completely barking! But once we do start to connect to this very precious area inside of us we can feel that it is very real, and that in fact it represents our preciousness as women. In order to take care of this preciousness we can tune in to our cervix in order to know how to move and what to say yes or no to. It can be our guide in how to move through life. A gorgeous way of staying connected to our bodies and enjoying our delicacy.

  19. Past history has shown that any woman who truly connected to their sacredness and became aware of their body as a woman and could feel their power were classed as a witch or vilified and brought down in any way possible. We now live in a society that does not honour their sacredness, and rarely live the principles of what it means to be a woman. I know I have had little connection with being a woman throughout my life, my cervix is still not something I consider every day, but your question ‘what does my cervix say’ is a great place to start, for it is the most precious and sacred part of a woman’s body.

  20. “As women, energetically our cervix is the place where we hold our sacredness.” One day this truth will be known by men and women everywhere. I wish I had known more about the sacredness of woman before I entered my elder years. But there is every opportunity to reconnect with it now, It’s never too late.

  21. A great blog to re-read and take a moment to pause and sense and appreciate my cervix. In this momentary pause – there is a warmth and pulse-like-vibration emanating from my cervix through my body. Thank you Jane and Monika. Now to explore checking in with the cervix when out shopping.

  22. “As women, energetically our cervix is the place where we hold our sacredness” I know for many years I walked around no idea of what sacredness was and no idea of how sacred the cervix actually is. As women we miss out when we are not aware of the divinity our bodies hold.

  23. I have to say Jane I have never considered my cervix in this way before! I have been participating in scared movement and through those movements can now feel my cervix. So I’ll take what you have said and go deeper to listening to what my cervix has to say … what fun!

  24. Jane and Monika, I love this article, it reminds me not to rush through life but to honour myself and my body and to enjoy my femaleness and feel connected with my breasts, ovaries and cervix.

  25. I love that this conversation has been initiated, and that we are bringing to the fore our relationship with our cervix, as such living in connection to our sacredness, our divine power as women. I had feel a deep sense of this when I was growing up but nowhere was it lived or reflected through the women in the world or the role models that I was surrounded by. Yet through the ages this quality of sacredness had been lived and valued by many women. Accepting, appreciating and reclaiming our body as a vessel through which our sacredness can be lived, is how we share the beauty, the grace the wisdom and the power of who we innately are as women with the world.

  26. What a great blog Jane. Bringing more awareness to our cervix is an intimate and powerful conversation to share together, rather than it being kept hidden away as something not to be spoken of and thus keep our sacredness out of our awareness, even though it is already intrinsic to our being.

    1. Yes as women we rarely if at all talk about the cervix or our sacredness – or about so much more about being in a woman’s body – it is truly time to start the conversation as we have more and more women’s health issues continuing to rise.

  27. Our bodies hold such wisdom, when we connect to any part with this honouring it is very clear what is being communicated. How would it be possible to dishonour ourselves as women when we are connected to our cervix and the sacredness we are. And what do our stomachs, our liver and our heart say? What a wealth we have access to through our connection with the body.

  28. Having just done an Esoteric Yoga session my body feels deeply still and in that stillness the quality that each part of my holds can be felt and appreciated. Moving in this quality is sacred and very natural.

  29. From this it brings me to an understanding that there is a deep quality inside us as women and when we connect to this there is a quality there and we can bring that through in how we move about our days, when we connect and live this quality there is an honouring of ourselves.

  30. “In building a relationship with our cervix, and playfully living life and asking ‘what does my cervix say?” in any given situation, it is the best friend we can ever have.” Love this Jane and Monika, we do not need to look outside of ourselves as the wisdom of the body does know.

  31. ‘In building a relationship with our cervix, and playfully living life and asking ‘what does my cervix say?” in any given situation, it is the best friend we can ever have.’ After reading this gorgeous blog it is clear I haven’t really spent time developing a relationship with my cervix. Thank you Jane as I am feeling inspired to take notice of this part of my body and be open to connecting to my cervix and feeling the deep wisdom this can offer us.

  32. Thanks for posing this question ladies, which is deeply confirming of the absolute inner knowing that is always there for us to tap into.

  33. Jane and Monika, asking ‘what does my cervix say’ is something that I have not done before, it is really interesting and inspiring reading how you connect with your cervix in your day to day and how this acts as a guide for you in life, this is something I will experiment with, thank you.

  34. I have always felt my eternal best friend is myself and to understand this in a deeper context and to build this relationship with every part of my body is an eye opening but naturally it makes so much sense. I am truly inspired by all the deepening that goes on in the relationship with myself as a woman.

  35. A fun way to remind ourselves of how precious we really are and that we, in fact carry in our own body, all the wisdom that is needed to make the shifts that will change the world as we know it. For true change, always starts in our own backyard.

  36. Honestly, the first time that I listened someone talking about my cervix I had to find in which precise part of my body is in Internet. It’s quite surprising that we as women hold a very powerful and sacred space within and yet we don’t know very much about it. This blog inspires me to feel more about me by connecting with my cervix which by the moment says “thank you Jane for invite women to connect with their deepest best friend”.

  37. What do our arms, legs, fingers, eyes, ears, and yes cervix say, no they do not actually speak of course but they really do share something with us if we are willing to listen and be aware of the signs.

  38. Did you know that such clarity and astute knowing with our body is not only found in women but also in men? Yes whilst men do not have a cervix they do have shoulders and our shoulders and chest area are always a great indicator of whether we are taking on the world and hence closing down our love and natural expression. Or whether we remain open to all letting it all in and our natural expression out.

    1. Love it Joshua – and yes how I agree. All of us as we reside in a human body has the potential to get to know every part of it. And through that the body can speak to us.

    2. What a beautiful sharing Joshua. Living with three men and working with many more men, I can see by looking at their shoulders and chest area how much is weighing them down by what they are carrying. It’s amazing how our bodies can change in an instant when we are met by another and openly express how we feel.

  39. The cervix feels like it is in the centre of a woman’s body. A deeply sacred place to know ourselves from, free from any need for recognition or identification from outsdie of us.

  40. This is a part of our body that we often ignore and I know for me I do not always consider how I move taking this into account in the way I would with other body parts and yet every part of us is affected by how we move and I can feel if I moved in a way that considered also my cervix there would be a delicateness in how I am with me. Something to experiment with, methinks.

  41. As I read the title of this blog, I realised how often I ignore my cervix which is an absolute crime. I find connecting with this part of my body really changes the way I move and feel as I go about my day. I stop being the robot-like worker, focussed on tasks at hand and remember I am and always will be a woman first.

  42. A great reninder today again Jane and Monika.
    What is my cerix saying. I completly forget about connecting with that part of my body when I went shopping this afternoon. I came home very tired. Like I was letting in alle energies at play because I didn’ t choose to be with me in my body and to connect with this sacred place within me.

  43. Getting to know ourselves more deeply as women is very supportive and loving, to know our bodies so well that we know what the cervix is and represents, is also a deeply rewarding connection to self.

    1. I agree Reagan. Getting to know the body we reside in is a rewarding experience as then the body is able to show us what is needed and is a great navigator through our daily life choices.

  44. Starting my relationship with my cervix was when I first when for a swob test and it really didn’t feel that comfortable at all. In fact I couldn’t feel it until the scrapping which definitely gave could not be ignored. Once I started Sacred Movement with Natalie Benhayon and started to actively engage with my cervix I started to feel the quality that it holds and how powerful this is.

    1. A great point Natalie. I wouldn’t have believed it was possible to feel my cervix and ovaries until I started to hear about the experiences other women had. When I began to be able to connect to my own body this way it was a revelation.
