A Conscious Conception Perspective
Getting pregnant is easy for some, and more difficult for others. It can be overwhelming, stressful, and heartbreaking or it can be joyous, exciting, and intuitive. It is a perception shift and a release of positive intention that may just be what you need to make your dreams come true.
When you and your partner decided to have a baby you probably thought “OK I should get on some prenatal vitamins, eat healthier, and probably exercise a bit more.” Which, don’t get me wrong, is a great start, but there is more, much more that you can do to open your heart, mind, and spirit for a new baby. I call this opening, conscious conception.
Let me ask you a question, and I want you to really think about it. Have you made room for a baby in your life? If not, it is time to make that space for a baby. What can you improve in your life that would make YOU happy? How are your relationships with your partner, friends, and co-workers? What about your spirit? Do you pray or meditate? These are simple yet important questions to ask yourself so that you can start to open. When was the last time you sat down and asked yourself, am I happy? Are you working 60 hours a week, sleeping very little, and stretched super thin?
It is so easy for us to approach having a baby in a goal oriented way, another thing to accomplish, to get perfect. The problem is that getting pregnant is not that easy. I wish it was! You can plan for a step by step baby making program but life is not that simple. It is messy, and uncontrollable. Can we switch from an idea of achieving a baby, to receiving a baby? It is time to surrender, let go of toxic behaviors, and begin the process of loving yourself again. Because in the grand picture, it always about love.
A lot of women I work with are really stuck in scarcity mode. They believe that they never have enough. Do you catch yourself saying “I never have enough money” or “I never have enough time”? We live in a culture that feeds us the idea that we are not enough all the time. I am asking you to switch gears a bit and start to say to yourself, you are enough. You have money, love, beauty, friendships. It is time to switch from a scarcity mindset, to an abundant mindset.
Many of you want to be a mother. I am here to tell you that you are already a mother. You are a part of a large community of mothers, connected by generations of women who have graced this earth in the past, present, and future. You are a part of the great mother earth, nourishing yourself and others. From this day on, I want you to believe it, deep in your soul that you are already and mother, and you are inviting a fertile being in all aspects of your life.
Stop living in fear, stop looking at the clock, stop feeling like you are never good enough, that you are broken. You are not. It is time to start honoring you for the amazing woman that you are right now, and cultivating conscious conception in all areas of your life.
Happy Baby making.
