Fertility and Infertility
These two words can mean so many things for so many people.
This is how I relate to them today...
I recently read that about 1 in 6 women experience infertility, according to an article titled, Infertility: More common than you think.
I am one of these women. Writing this still feels odd and uncomfortable. The thoughts that accompany the feelings are, "Really...I belong to a group of women who are struggling to have a baby," and, "I am not infertile," and, "Has it really been over 5 years since my miscarriage, with no other pregnancy." These thoughts and this article carry with it a heaviness–a doom and gloom type of energy. Fortunately, I have learned to rise above the heaviness by turning to the mystery and invitation to change, that this path to motherhood has offered and stills offers. Look at that bee in the rose, that is how I am experiencing my journey to being a Mom, as naturally as I can, taking in the pollen (food for thought, food for change) from each new experience (flower).
And now another autumn, a time to collect the colours of my learnings for the year and reflect on who I am now. This is one of the many invitations that 'infertility' has to offer.
I have been peeling off layers, healing and revealing myself during this awakening time in my life. In my mind and heart the word infertility has been replaced with transformation, mothering myself; inviting mystery and wonder. This journey has introduced me to spirit babies, to reparenting myself, to redefining conscious conception, to strengthening my relationship with my partner. Most definitively it has powered up my belief in the spiritual awakening that a longer journey to being a parent can be.
I'm going to expand on my sharing by using one of the Laws of Universe I have been connecting with in my past blogs and in my life right now.
How does the Law of Faith support my path to being a Mama?
The Law of Faith is founded on the recognition that we know more than we have read, heard, or studied; we know more because we are more; we have a direct link to universal wisdom; we only have to look, listen and trust. ~ Dan Millman, The Life You Were Born to Live
I know this...I know that I have this direct link to universal wisdom, which resides deep with my heart of hearts. It is my higher self, inner wisdom, my intuition. Does it get buried and blurred by other peoples thoughts, ideas, opinions and such. Yes it can. However, I am pleased to share that I mostly stay free of other "stuff". I stay free of it because I practice everyday to stay free.
My commitment to my own knowing has strengthened over the last years of working with my fertility. I have had helpers, Kelly Meehan, Joan Weir, Corinne Mintz, Lorne Brown and many others who have helped me remove "the stuff" of society or other sticky lessening words or ideas. The Law of Faith has lead me to the ultimate support, that is TRUST. I trust myself, even when I make mistakes, I trust that I learn and redo them with a healthy growing attitude. Wow! This is the gift of being on a long fertility journey. Do I want a baby now? Am I ready? Yes and yes. And I am grateful for the deep learnings and transformation. YES!
From trust to creativity
Creativity lives in my second chakra, and I trust that is where my baby will grow. Until then I have birthed a program to support the awakening experience and the creativity in others, and to support the powering up of TRUST for others on long paths to motherhood. I call it Heart Fertility Yoga. It is a course that brings together modern science and research, ancient yoga wisdom and my personal experience with yoga and with energy healing and modalities. I will lead you on your own path of opening the heart of your fertility.
It is an 8-week course that requires commitment and the courage to reveal messages from your own being. The path will be unique to you and your creativity through engaging your body, mind and spirit in an exploration of your chakras (energy centres) in your body.
Dialogue, movement, and stillness will lead you to more love and compassion for who you are as a woman and as a mother. Join me in and a beautiful small sacred community of women in 2020 to renew your path to baby.
