In blog #3 during National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW), I talked about the in-touch feeling I call “fertility consciousness’ and how this state of mind helps couples with fertility challenges rebalance within themselves in alignment with nature. It is the responsibility for each man and woman to keep it that way.
For women, this knowing takes place early at menarche and ends in menopause. There is a rhythm each month, and each woman dances to her own beat—to the beat of her own music within herself. Since springtime is one of growth and rebirth, women, in particular, can benefit from becoming expert “Gardeners” to understand what it takes to plant the seeds and tend to flowers while watching them grow.
To maintain healthy growth of flowers, it takes more than just planting the seeds. Gardeners must be aware of any possible conditions that may stunt the plant’s growth or harm it in any way. There must be a conscious effort before the seeds are planted. Soil conditions must be fertile with the correct light and water requirements. This is so photosynthesis can take place, and the flower can be nourished from the inside out.
Now, in spring is a perfect time to grow flowers and become gardeners of life. We have the symbolism of abundant bunny rabbits at Easter. This time of year, as I look out my office window, I see a small live rabbit that comes up to greet me, and she keeps me company all summer long. I call her Pachamama, named after the fertility goddess from Peru. I purchased an alpaca version of her on the peak of a mountain range that rises about 16,000 ft. above sea level. Rabbits rapidly multiply as a natural process.
Human females go through similar experiences in life during their procreative journeys. They can learn from animals, such as squirrels, as they scurry to collect acorns for the future. The female protects their fledglings from competitors, and she preserves life.
Women must honor themselves for they are faced with many obstacles before their clocks run out of time, and they lose sight of how to move towards the light. Such obstacles are physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, social, and psychological that can prevent the life-giving energies from flowing.
What is most important for the garden to grow is the courage of conviction to know where to plant the seed and to know who you are and what you want to accomplish. This truth will set you free.
One last thing that is a requirement for planting a garden is to know that there is no such thing as “infertility” in the world of nature. To be fertile is your rightful inheritance. It is you birthright, and no one can rob you of this, unless you let them. Although becoming pregnant is a natural event that takes place around the world daily, you have to claim fertility just as the birds and squirrels do. At this time of transgressions, women should honor who they are, learn to trust, and to forgive themselves.
I know these things from my own personal and professional experiences. Perhaps you do, too, or maybe you have forgotten them, temporarily. If you are ready to return to a state of balance, there are tools you can use that I call “Mindful Toughness skills.” These include relaxation, breathing easy, mental rehearsal to envision success, self-hypnosis to get in the fertile zone on you own, and positive self-talk to enable a positive outlook. This state of mind can be accomplished by participating in my program, Metamorphosis: Fertility Enhancement Coaching.
I invite you all to join in to listen to my previous radio shows on NBR FM listed on my websites: idealperformance.net and fertilebodyhypnosis.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
