Just before the New Year, I asked my subscriber’s this question, “What would you have to feel if you gave up the hope of love coming in the future this New Year?” Many responded to this question with resistance. I was touched by their incredible awareness.
I follow a lot of fertility blogs. One of the most consistent themes I notice is a discussion about “mindset.” Which inevitably boils down to, “SHIFT your mindset and miracles happen.” Think positive, in other words. Have you tried thinking positive while trying to conceive? It is like a Chinese finger trap. Our immediate, automatic reaction to any unpleasant experience is to set up a goal – to avoid the experience, to push it away, to get rid of it, or to fix it. This includes positive thinking. This reaction is called aversion. Aversion underlies all the thinking patterns that get us stuck in unwanted emotions while trying to conceive.
I encourage you to approach “infertility” as you would a young child; as an act of unconditional love. I’m talking about living a life while trying to conceive that is driven by gratitude more than by fear. This is a very good way to become a Mother or become anything, really, that calls to your heart and brings you to life.
A short video to express my gratitude for you on this day of Thanksgiving. May YOUR seat at the holiday table be a place of inner holding and acceptance this year.
Endometriosis is a common and painful condition in which cells from the lining of your uterus (endometrium) relocate outside your uterus and attach themselves to other organs – your fallopian tubes, ovaries and the tissue lining your pelvis.
