THANK YOU BUFFY

Dear Buffy, Your work remains active in me daily. It has transformed my life. Your mindful fertility prosess started me on a journey that has blessed me with liberation from a long dark night of the soul—I could say a lifelong night of the soul.  I came to your work bereft of hope, filled with suffering, and with no light in sight.  I left with tools that blossomed over these couple of years into a deep practice in the art of living.  Living richly in the face of continued great loss.  The debilitating anxiety, fear, anger and disappointment that characterized how I internally met life have metamorphosed into mostly fleeting moments that come and go as I watch, often with a healthy dose of compassion in that gaze—unheard of prior to mindfulness practice being my daily bread!  Their hold on my mind has decreased to the point that I marvel at how I made it through all the years of living in such suffering.  What a gift it was to find your work and be generously given the tools to begin my journey back to myself!  I’d been searching for so very long for healing, trying many things, but had never seen clearly enough to realize that the practice of presence was absolutely foundational to any healing for me.

Ever since I began, I’ve meditated an hour a day, with few exceptions.  It was hard to do, a daily commitment, and remains thus.  But the benefits!  It’s like all that work sets me up to bring mindfulness into the whole day, moment by moment.  Oh, my mind goes flying all over the place, but now I catch it again and again and again, throughout the day, reground, show up again; and in doing so, I stop terrorizing myself with my thoughts.  More and more over time, I catch myself before my body has gripped in fear, regret or dark anticipation.  Or if I’m too late, I can now give myself some kindness, breathing myself back off the ledge.  “Yes. This, too. This, too.” Of course, I haven’t been magically relieved of all my Stuff—I fall about constantly—but I’m finally there to pick myself up.  And with ever-diminishing Germanocatholic self-berating!  Indeed, compassion for myself continues to take root.  And that is MIRACULOUS.

Life has become richer and much more interesting.  My marriage has grown.  All of my relationships have deepened.  I have been reunited in a heartfelt way with my family, and the tenor of my friendships is fuller, sweeter.  I don’t dread myself and my lacks very much anymore, and can share this newfound peace with those I love.

In order to show up, I have had to fundamentally change the pace of my life.  Slow way, way down.  Hurry is tantamount to anxiety for me.  My adrenals took a big toll from my prior mode of existence.  Since adolescence,  I’ve experienced the symptoms of PTSD, but now instead of being frustrated about that and simply pushing on through to my detriment, I  practice accepting what it is, and letting it guide how I structure my days.  This has required a quiet kind of life without much socializing or go-getting.  It’s quite hard on one level, as I long have wanted to expand and deepen my work, spend more time with my friends, visit my family more often, make and maintain a great big luscious vegetable garden, etc.  But learning to honor my energy limitations—and give gratitude for what I can do, for the abundance I do have—has been one of the most powerful teachings of my life.  My days are now filled with countless moments of internal “thank you’s.”  For example, when, for the 57th day in a row my husband administers another injection of progesterone into my bruised and painful butt cheek, instead of the previous frustration and shame about my position, I feel:  “Thank you that I am lucky enough to even be able to use ART.  Thank you that at 45 I get to get pregnant with my sister’s help, with my husband’s financial sacrifice, with science’s advances.”  How different the world looks from this shift in perspective!

So I hope you recognize the gift you give, Buffy.  Know also that I recognize it and appreciate this part of your life’s work with all my heart.

I want to share with you, on a more painful note, that in the past 14 months I’ve lost all three pregnancies from my dear little sister’s donor cycle.  Two have been miscarriages, and one was a devastating decision to end the pregnancy in the second trimester when we found that our baby had a severe genetic defect.  We have three more embryos, and are trying to feel out how to move from here.  Nobody knows why I’m miscarrying—everything keeps looking great at the start.  So since I last saw you, my life goes pretty much in the cycle of being pregnant, losing it, healing from that, and preparing for the next try.  All this, and I can still write all of the above.  I am grateful indeed.

Much gratitude, Kathleen

(Kathleen delivered a healthy baby girl in 2011, after many years of trying).

The Mindful Fertility process was transformational!  At first I was hesitant to immerse myself in a topic that was very personal to me after having complications getting pregnant.  However, I quickly changed my mind after the first week -what an amazingly supportive process.  Buffy Trupp handles a very sensitive topic with such grace and understanding.  Each day was a different but related subject that always enlightened my perspective.  The daily “progress notes” were very insightful and created a great awareness around one’s overall health and care. The support from the meditations, the recipes and treats offered each DAY made it a very complete experience.  Today I sit writing these thoughts just days away from giving birth.  I do think the lessons from the Mindful Fertility process that I put into action — meditation, nutrition, yoga, etc — helped us get us where we are today.  I would recommend this process to anyone looking for a place to get “grounded”, to find a peaceful setting to look forward to every day, and a support system that will last beyond your next cycle.

Buffy, I just wanted to keep you posted on our progress. I’m PREGNANT!!!! When I first found out, I was in a state of shock. I couldn’t believe that something we had been hoping for was actually true. Now that I have had a little time for it to sink in I am getting excited and feeling happy. I know this is a touch and go time but my typical defense mechanism is to not get my hopes up for fear of being let down and I don’t want to do that this time. I am choosing to be HAPPY in this moment! Thank you for this profoundly helpful process. I think you are amazing!
Tracy, Wyoming

Hi Buffy, I think of you often and still try my best to incorporate what I learned from the Mindful Fertility process into my routine life. Learning about mindfulness and the mind-body connection proved to be incredibly effective for me on my journey to conceive. Beyond this, I have learned skills and techniques that have been helpful in every aspect of my life. Thank you Buffy! PS‚ I just had to email and tell you #3 is on the way! A BIG surprise. How strange to have this occur so quickly after all we went through with #2.
Karen, Idaho

When a friend recommended you I thought to myself, I have had enough of this! I can’t do one more intervention‚ so I half heartedly glanced at the materials you sent me (including the commitment contract – great idea) and I realized that I had never TRULY committed before because I was so afraid of failing – this alone was life changing for me‚ and then I just kept showing up to do the work – like I never had before. This changed my life. Thank you.

BUFFY, I WANTED TO WRITE AND TELL YOU HE IS HERE! THE FIRST THING RANDY SAID WAS, “WE HAVE GOTTA DO THIS AGAIN,” CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? THE MAN WHO DIDN’T WANT TO TRY IVF IS HOOKED! THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME LISTEN TO HIS CONCERNS AND CONTINUE TO SPEAK MY TRUTH LOVINGLY. THIS LITTLE ONE WOULD NOT BE HERE WITHOUT YOUR HELP.
Carol, Washington

I take your meditations to acupuncture and I am blown away with the results. I leave with the deepest sense of peacefulness and I realize this is available to me in EVERY moment. Regardless of whether or not I conceive.
Just awesome.
Thank you.
Ava, Vancouver

After 3 years of assisted reproductive treatments, I finally did a mindful fertility cycle and I did, did, did, get pregnant! I am expecting a little girl any day now. I find myself amazed at small wonders and grateful to be experiencing every inch of this. I also realize that I remain the same person‚ I still experience joy and loss. Thank you!
Caroline, San Francisco

She arrived last month what a dream come true! I was so afraid of trying IVF in case it did not work but we did it on our first try thanks, I believe, to this process. I think your work is essential and profound. Mindfulness and the insight it provided gave me a radical shift in perspective.
Kelly, Florida

I would definitely advise anyone TTC to try the Mindful Fertility process. The tools are so beneficial. I started feeling a difference right away and it totally changed my perspective about many things – my fertility journey, my relationship, my life. I am sleeping better, I feel generally more at peace, more relaxed and my husband and I have had an easier time communicating. What a relief. Thank you.
April, Tennessee

My doctor told me I would NEVER conceive without assistance because my amh was .02 and my fsh was 57. I tried EVERYTHING I could locally before I found you online. I am ecstatic to report that I am 12 weeks pregnant with twins – naturally. And to tell you how grateful I am to be pregnant – yes! but even more than that – to have the tools to live a truly FERTILE life. My babies and I thank you for this essential insight.
Amy, Maine

Hi Buffy! Happy New Year. I want to thank you for all of your amazing support in getting to be a Mom this year. xoxoxoxo‚
Rita, British Columbia

I REALLY CAN’T FIND WORDS TO DESCRIBE HOW WONDERFUL MY MINDFUL FERTILITY PROCESS WAS! I AM CURRENTLY 22 WEEKS INTO MY FIRST PREGNANCY. MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE TRIED IVF 2 TIMES, AND THIS TIME IT WORKED! MINDFULNESS HELPED ME TRULY EMBODY MY DESIRE FOR CHILDREN WHILE LETTING GO OF THE DEMAND I WAS PUTTING ON MYSELF TO HAVE CHILDREN. WHAT A COOL INSIGHT! AND IT HELPED. I CAN’T THANK YOU ENOUGH!
Lydia, New York

Don't let anything that happens in life be important enough that you're willing to close your heart over it.

When your heart starts to close, just say, "No, I'm not going to close. I'm going to relax. I'm going to let this situation take place and be there with it."

Honor and respect the situation. Deal with it. Do the best you can.

But deal with it with openness.

When you begin the process of setting external boundaries, you will first need to learn to set internal boundaries with the part of you, called anxiety, who will want to be in authority.

When anxiety is in authority within you, it will say to you, "What If?"

"What if I represent my needs and I'm rejected?"

or 

"What if I represent my feelings and I'm ridiculed?"

When you notice anxiety in authority within you, provide for it by saying, "You're safe. It’s ok.”

And then represent your needs and feelings externally.

Enmeshment means organizing your life around the feelings of somebody else instead of validating and responding to the needs that you have.

Creating a boundary is your willingness and ability to say no.

When you have boundaries, you have your own feelings, needs, and wants.

When you were little, who acknowledged you when you cried?

I ask this question to all of my clients.

If someone kindly acknowledged your pain, then your nervous system knew it was secure.

You knew you were safe.

If the grown-ups around you did not acknowledge your pain, your nervous system automatically told you there must be something to be anxious about.

When the caregiver, culture, friend, and family are impartial, anxiety is the result.

Mother’s Day is a painful day for so many women.

Acknowledge their pain.

My empathy cards can help.

What is unrepresented within me will show up in the form of radical behavior.

Pain and disease are one form of radical behavior.

Ask yourself:

What am I feeling that I really want to say if I wasn't at all afraid of saying what is really happening for me?

AND/OR

What truth inside am I trying to tell myself but I'm not listening to, that I'm not acknowledging or that I haven’t
been able to say to myself?

When our defenses become our allies we can benefit from them. 

We ask the defensive part, "How did you learn to serve me in this way?"

When we understand this part of us, why it took leadership, and we are in a relationship with its intelligence, we are in a position to agree with its advice, or not.

Growth is when we can set boundaries with the defensive parts and the authentic self is in authority.

For example, "My anger is my ally and I am in control of it."

Or,

When I feel anger, I can voice it in some way and then consider whether or not I want to eat/drink/smoke.

The only guaranteed outcome of change is RESISTANCE. 

We experience resistance at each and every stage of growth.

If you propose change, your inner defensive parts will not want to come to the therapy session!

These parts have a purpose, intelligence, and carry a need and a desire to survive. 

In the therapeutic process, we must respect them as living beings and their desire to exert their leadership as protection.

When we step into the world of the defenses and honor them, safety is established and the change process begins.

There is no healing the body or healing the mind; there is just healing. There is no separation! When you heal, you become. You become a Mom or whatever you long to be.

On my decade's long journey as a somatic psychotherapist, as a patient of psychotherapy, as a meditator, as a student of various wisdom traditions, and as a human being making embodied sense of my own trauma I’ve realized that the great unifying principle to health and well being is integrity.

In a typical conversation, we think of integrity as something we have or don’t have. The same is true for dis-ease.

But if you look closely, dis-ease and integrity are not something we have or don’t have. They are an internal representation of our lives both collectively and individually.

Dis-ease is fundamental and wise. But only when we’re informed by it.

Let’s start with language.
 
When we presence, become aware of, and look at the process and language, the sentiment or thought or belief that I have a dis-ease. It looks like there is an “it” called dis-ease that happens to happen inside of my body and I don’t have any access to it nor do I have any control to change it. There is a thing, an “it” called dis-ease and I have it. Doctors say I have a dis-ease and I confirm it. And so I have coherence with authority figures and with the culture. When we think like this we invest in each other’s trauma; the belief that we are separate from our bodies.

When in actuality, I don’t have a dis-ease.

I am tightening up to suppress or compress my experience. I am actively holding my experience out of my awareness. Then I take medicine or undergo surgery to deal with the symptom that I am. So trauma becomes normalized in our world, in our language, in our body, and in our medicine.

Trauma is numb to information.

Healing trauma begins by courageously becoming informed. When we learn to let dis-ease inform us, we become a working force in our own health and well-being and a powerful agent of change.

#infertility #healinginfertility #healing #awareness #mindfulness #mindbodymedicine #mindfulfertilityproject
Reality is not good or bad, right or wrong. Reality is what's happening right now. This moment, just this moment, is the way that it is.

#infertility #healinginfertility #awareness #mindfulness #mindbodymedicine #mindfulfertilityproject
When we experience pain, our automatic tendency is to hold it outside of our awareness. We do this without knowing we do this by blaming, judging, analyzing, worrying, shaming, fixing. Not feeling pain seems so justified. But we cannot heal when we can't feel. Healing is a four step process:

1. Awareness begins the healing journey. It is the process of becoming informed, of bringing how and what we hold out of awareness, into awareness. It is the process of deactivating shame and fear so we can feel what is below them.
 
2. Acknowledgement involves compassionately greeting all that we have denied, disowned, dissociated, projected and suppressed: beginning to feel all that we have intelligently and actively held out of our awareness.
 
3. Healing is the work of opening or returning connection to these suppressed, denied, dissociated, projected parts within ourself and in our relationships. The work begins within the therapeutic relationship.
 
4. Integration is the restoration of our capacity for presence, safety and connection through any experience; a moving toward what’s happening, even if it’s painful. This is the ultimate act of the mothering and it's essential for healthy brain development in your baby and young child. 

 
My approach is rooted in awareness-based, somatic psychotherapy. Through a focused method of individual therapy and customized meditations, you will master healing.  When you do, conception is often a side effect; spontaneous conception, conception through IVF, Egg Donation or adoption or by any means you choose to create your family.

#infertility #healinginfertility #awareness #mindfulness #mindbodymedicine #mindfulfertilityproject
When you begin setting boundaries, you will have to provide for the part of you called anxiety.

Anxiety will say to you, "What If?"

"What if I represent my needs and I'm rejected?"

or 

"What if I represent my feelings and I'm ridiculed or worse, ignored?"

To begin to provide for the part of you that is anxious, say, "You're safe. I'm here for you. I won't abandon you."

Mindful Minute

I invite you to begin by letting your attention descend into your body, descend out of your mind and out of your head and just let your attention descend down through your chest and into your lower belly.

Allowing your breath to move in and out through your lower belly; just attending to your breath in your belly.

If you’re not trying to control anything or change the quality of your breath, if you’re just being aware of the quality of your breath in your belly you’ll notice that it has a tendency all by itself to begin to calm the nervous system. 
 
Just the act of conscious breathing resets the nervous system and calms it and allows it to return to a more natural state, to a more peaceful state.

Mindful Minute

Once again I invite you to allow yourself to become aware of the breath as a way of gathering your attention down into the body.

Allowing your attention to come out of your mind and allow yourself to be aware of your mind and your body relaxing.

And as your body relaxes, awareness and the energy of your body begin to come down and inward into the lower abdomen as you’re breathing.

And I want to remind you that to be aware doesn’t mean to be selectively aware. It doesn’t mean you’re trying to shut anything out, any thought, any feeling, any image.

To be aware just means that you’re putting your attention on the awareness itself and so if a thought arises, it’s just a thought and you’re only being aware so you’re not adding more commentary, you’re not judging yourself for thinking, you’re just only being aware of the thought as it arises and passes away.

So whatever arises, you’re just letting go of judging it in any way. Positively or negatively and you’re just letting go of commenting on it or analyzing it and you’re only being aware.

Awareness is the backdrop upon which ALL of our experience unfolds.

Sensations come and go in awareness, as do thoughts, as do feelings.

It seems like when we’re thinking our experience of ourselves is whatever we’re thinking. Our thinking becomes our experience of ourselves.

We think we are our thoughts.

That’s part of our habitual tendencies. That is part of our conditioning.

And yet thoughts come and go but somehow we exist whether we’re thinking or not.

So just take a moment and let yourself feel the deepest part of your being.

Because you’re not just experiencing awareness, how it feels, the quality of it, the texture of it but you’re actually being it.

Awareness is a deep aspect of who or what you are.
