My life has forever been changed after answering the call to become a Mother. The whole process opened me up in ways I never imagined possible. Working through the fears, learning about the importance of deep nutrition, respecting the subtle and not-so-subtle energies that lined the entire path. . . Such a fast track to deep soul-searching and prioritization of things in my life.
In order for a woman’s body to birth a baby naturally, all of the energy pathways (chakras) must be open to allow the new life to flow through. INTENSE to say the least! It marked a time for me of deep reflection and having to stare many fears right in the face.
“The way out is through.”
This whole new journey I embarked upon led to more questions and more answers within myself than ever before. The role of Mother is so very closely attuned with Mother Earth (Gaia). Right now Gaia is undergoing much cleansing, shifting, etc. and we must commit ourselves to holding in highest regard the health and protection of that which is being birthed. The glorious and golden new baby of Mother Earth. A new life. A new way. On a personal level, we can definitely feel what our home planet is going through. And I feel that women especially are picking up on the great cleansing. We must remember that we are One.
There is much trauma in our world due to living disconnected from our innate connection with Earth – and ourselves. When women ask me about my unassisted birth story, before I can even answer, I am usually met with a story of their deep birth trauma. Epidurals, C-sections, not being heard – disconnection from baby – feeling as if a storm took over and dreams were shattered and power was stripped. This all feels very painful to me. An event that was once marked as an Initiation, a Holy Rite of Passage, has turned to an “emergency” that can only be “safely” executed in a sterilized hospital setting. A Woman, in completely surrendering herself to birthing energy, is in the most vulnerable/open/powerful state. And when that is taken from her (often without her knowing), it creates a wound (physically & emotionally – on a deep subconscious level), that most who have been through it try their hardest to forget. But the cells do not forget. They hold onto and grip all unintegrated painful experiences, so that we may learn, grow, and move on. The plight of women these days is reminiscent of that of the Earth’s. Infertility problems, traumatic experiences, fear for what is to come, an outsourcing of one’s power, being scared of what is natural or untampered with. . .
“Normal” and “natural” are not the same!
I have heard the call to help and I am answering. I intend to assist women – mothers, soon-to-be-mothers, those who wish to be mothers or simply wish to honor the feminine within. I have always felt drawn to restore the Earth however I know how, and now I realize that that is taking the form of honoring Woman. Honoring the creativity of Goddess. My years of study, personal experience, working with the spiritual realm, becoming attuned to Reiki, love of nutrition/nourishment, etc. has led me to now offer:
- Reiki classes – So that whoever wishes can be attuned to this loving, gentle, powerful energy
- Hosting Women’s support groups – Where we can share birth stories, parenting stories, allow open communication and integration. Feeling heard is an important step of the process!
- Assisting with nutritional strategies – To help with fertility and harmony in the body/mind/spirit. What can you eat to prepare for conception, pregnancy, breastfeeding?
- Lymphatic Decongestion sessions – Reduce inflammation, fade scars, boost immunities, help shift grief to peace
- Energy work – Work through past traumas, fears, anxieties, etc. Access your deepest innate healing potential!
