The Pelvic Floor Muscles are located between your pubic bone and tailbone.
They are hammock shaped. These muscles are very important because they keep our internal organs at an optimal posture inside our pelvis. They prevent incontinence. A relaxed and strong pelvic floor allows us to feel “uplifted” from the inside out and experience the innate pleasure that sexual intercourse and lovemaking brings. A tight pelvic floor causes sensations of pain during intercourse.
These muscles are deep and internal and tend to hold emotions if we were abused sexually or touched in a way we did not approve of. Sometimes we carry tension and pain in this area for years because of suppressed emotions like shame, guilt or humiliation from these past traumas.
The posture that you assume if you work at a desk 6-8 hours a day, may cause these muscles to be tight or chronically tense.
Pelvic Floor Awareness Exercises are a great way to maintain optimal health for your pelvic floor and genitals, a sacred area where we are so perfectly designed to experience openness, creativity, pleasure and connection.
Practice Pelvic Floor Awareness Exercises when you wake up in the morning or before you go to sleep to release tension, stress and repressed emotions from the past so you may live your life to the fullest.
PELVIC FLOOR AWARENESS EXERCISES:
Lay down in a comfortable position with the soles of your feet together and your knees wide apart.
Close your eyes. NOTE: If your outer thighs are high off the floor, place pillows underneath the thighs for support. Bring your shoulder blades down and back. Lengthen the crown of your head away from your hips.
Notice how your pelvic floor muscles “feel.” Do they feel tense or relaxed, lengthened or contracted? What emotions if any do you feel in this area of your body? Do you feel pleasure, peace, joy or tension, anger, shame, guilt? Simply notice what sensations and feelings arise as you bring awareness to your pelvic floor muscles. Is there a color or sound that you feel when you notice your pelvic floor?
You can draw what you feel to deepen your awareness of your pelvic floor. Listen to this guided meditation HERE to Relax your pelvic floor and Embody Trust and Self-Acceptance.
