Nothing can stop you from being a Mom. But how will you get there?
No, don’t “just relax,” just chill a little. After 20 years of teaching the Fertile Heart workshops, this is what I know for sure: No matter what they told you, these are not the last 5 minutes you have to get pregnant. So, if you know that your desire to be a mom is non-negotiable, then nothing can stop you for getting to your destination.
The only question is: how will you get there? I don’t mean whether you use ART or get pregnant in your bedroom. (Or your kitchen counter) What I mean is, will you crawl, or will you dance; will your path be a path of suffering or a path of self-discovery and healing? Here is an experiment: What would it feel like –to stop, deepen your breath just a tiny bit, and slowly read all 10 of these fertility tips?
And then take another nice slow sweet breath and ask yourself, Do any of these tips make sense to me? Notice the language you use. Sticks and stones can hurt your bones but words can make you stop ovulating. Really! Words are powerful fertility drugs. Are you infertile or do you have difficulty conceiving? Your body is listening to every word you say. If you don’t believe me, watch this little story.
Symptoms are not a punishment. How else is your wise body going to get your attention? Read and watch uplifting stories of others who turned their infertility into a life-changing opportunity to heal and birth the not-yet-born aspects of their own nature.
