Learn how to set powerful intentions for 2017
In 1978, the year the first IVF baby was born, subjective experience was considered irrelevant in medicine.
Now we know that what we do with our mind changes the health of our body; more specifically, the action and structure of our brain.
The brain is an organ in the head that is connected throughout the body by a system of neurons called the nervous system.
Here is how it works.
Ions go in and out of neurons and create action potential or charge. This electro-chemical flow releases chemicals that act as “keys” and send signals to the downstream neurons. If enough downstream neurons signal, the door unlocks and pores open and ions start flowing and action potential is created.
Some of that electro-chemical flow contains information.
For example, you hear the word “baby.”
The auditory part of your brain receives the energy of air molecules moving your tympanic membrane in a certain frequency and then an action potential fires at a certain frequency. Chemicals are released and then in your temporal lobe, the part of your brain that decodes sound, you get the sound, “baby.”
If you didn’t speak english, it would just be energy – gibberish. But since you do speak english, your brain re-presents the energy as information.
Energy that has meaning is called information – “baby.”
The brain is the embodied mechanism for electro-chemical energy flow and the mind is the way you know that you have a subjective experience when you hear the english word “baby.”
In mindfulness practice, we can train ourselves to notice the gap between the energy flow and the subsequent neural re-presentation. We then enter the space between energy flow and re-presentation with our mind.
When we train the mind to focus on the space between energy flow and information:
• we heal 4x faster
• our brain registers less pain
• conception rates go up by over 50%
Your mind has the capacity to regulate energy flow and information. What you do with this energy flow and information changes the health of your body.
In the Mindful Fertility process we train the mind to regulate the flow of energy and information by:
1. focusing attention on intention
2. becoming aware of awareness itself
3. focusing on inner experience
4. differentiating energy flow from the meaning we give to it and linking them with attentional practice.
The very first practice, focusing attention on intention, is a powerful tool while trying to conceive and an empowering way to start the New Year.
Setting the right intention is using awareness to regulate energy flow and information toward optimal fertile health.
Join me for my 2-hour Power of Mindful Intention Workshop on Saturday, January 28th, 2017 at 7:00 AM California/ 10:00 AM Eastern to learn how this one profound practice can help you use your mind to change the health of your body this year.
Yes, the intention that precedes every perception has the power to transform your health and your life in 2017.
The powerful meditation you receive along with the workbook are worth the price of enrollment alone! (And yes, your enrollment will entitle you to access the replay, workbook and the meditation if you can’t attend live.)
If you’re ready to discover your own power to change your life and turn heartbreak into healing energy this year, this workshop will show you how. I hope to see you on the inside.
All my very best, always,
On your journey to conceive you have no doubt become aware of at least one or two waves of despair rising and falling within you. At times you feel down, hopeless, uninspired and unable to find any meaning.
Of course, there is absolutely nothing wrong with your desire for a child. It’s so human, to have some yearning in the heart, some longing for connection, to be met in presence, to be seen, to be heard, to be touched, to be held and to hold.
Let’s talk about the brain again. We know from the findings in neuroscience that the mental and emotional changes we can create through mindfulness are transformational at the very physical level of the brain. By developing the ability to focus our attention on our internal experience in the Mindful Fertility meditations, we are picking up a scalpel we can use to re-sculpt our neural pathways, stimulating growth of areas of the brain that are crucial to mental health and fertility.
When I began my work with Dr. Smikle, Reproductive Endocrinologist and Medical Director at Laurel Fertility Care, in SF, California, I felt the impulse to try to find the culprit, to try to fix “infertility” for men and women trying to conceive.
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.
