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.

"What everybody wants is to be understood; for their feelings to be acknowledged. Acknowledgment doesn't mean you have to agree. Acknowledgement means allowing what someone wants to express to be expressed."

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.

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.
