Hello lovelies! I hope you're enjoying this amazing weather. Everything is in full bloom in New York, and I am loving it after this long-ass winter! There are cherry blossoms everywhere and it makes me so happy. Spring is one of those obvious symbols of rebirth, new life, fertility, blossoming etc; and it always re-energizes me!
I've been feeling called to get my doula certification for awhile now to see my New York clients from pre-conception, through pregnancy all the way to birth. And just to help as many women as possible have the empowered birth they deserve. It's been such a beautiful compliment to this fertility work. One of the things my instructor held up was a chinese finger trap- see below pic if you don't know what that is. But the basic idea is that you put your fingers in and pull away and it tightens up around your fingers and you're trapped. And the harder you pull, the more trapped you are. It's only when you let go, does the trap relax; and you can get free. And she was explaining that in terms of labor and dilation, sometimes the harder we try the tighter and harder it gets, so the more we can breathe and move around and feel into what our body wants vs what we're told to you, the more we can open up.
And I couldn't help but feel like it's a similar thing in terms of fertility. And we've talked about this before that according to the Law of Attraction, like attracts like- so the harder you try to get pregnant....the harder you try to get pregnant.
We can want to get out of that finger trap REALLY bad. It's not that we don't want it. But we get so caught up in the panic energy that we can't see that if we release the panic and breathe into it, we are free.
So what can you commit to this month? What aspect of this fertility process can you release? Are you relying on ovulation sticks instead of tuning into your body? Are you relying on other people to tell you what you need to do instead of tuning into your body? Are you super restrictive with your food fearing that the wrong amount of kale will make or break pregnancy instead of tuning into your body? Are you scheduling sex instead of connecting to your partner and tuning into your body?
Just in case I didn't say it enough there- tuning into your body! Your body is MADE to do this and knows how to do it. It needs you to put your trust back into it. Can you commit to spending your energy there and let go of one of those above things?
I know you can. And if you need some help getting started, I'm an email away for your complimentary 20 minute call to get you rolling.
In the meantime, I wish you well on your journey and KNOW that you can do this.
Lots of love,
