Visualization and Conception

Visualization plays a major role in trying to conceive. The connection between mind and body are forces that power the subconscious to send signals to perform our desired outcomes.  By using guided imagery, you can leverage this innate and powerful mind-body connection to achieve real and physical changes in your body. Pregnancy is one area where visualization is key in achieving a positive result. When a desired pregnancy does not occur it can lead to high levels of stress, anxiety, depression and a host of other changes that often cause a chemical imbalance setting off a chain of events. Many women and couples are at a loss of where to begin. Below I’ve put together a few things that helped me and hopefully that can help you get started in your own personal  visualization process:

  • Keep a journal of positive affirmations
  • Create a Vision Board
  • Guided Meditation
  • Think about your favorite form of exercise and do it!
  • Surround yourself with positive people and those who support you in your journey
  • Light a candle first thing in the morning for a short meditation or right before bed
  • Think about your baby! See it, smell it, touch your belly and visualize your baby in your womb.

Trust me, it works! This process rewarded me with two beautiful girls 🙂

Everything Has Its Season…

birth-e1309644034467

During the last year I’ve worked with many beautiful mothers whom are overwhelmed with the process of conceiving or not conceiving when they would  like. Having had the same experience, we often have the mind set that we are on our own time and babies will come when WE want them to. In essence, spiritually, this is possible however, everything must be in sync. Mama’s vibrations must be elevated so the body can do its work. When we offer resistance we are saying to the universe the very thing we are asking for is not what we want. Being open and receptive allows for many  transformations to start to take place, when we let go we allow the season that’s supposed to take place in our lives manifest. Be open, Be True, Be You.

Let The Weaning Begin!

The weaning process has become a bitterness to a sweet end for me. For the last 3 years I’ve breastfed my two beautiful girls, and I must say its been a great experience. Although it takes lots of time and energy, just knowing they both got off to a great start both mentally and physically is well worth it. Not only has it given them an immune system booster, it has helped establish a bond that is irreplaceable.
As for me, well, I must say I’m a little sad and really didn’t think I would be. For a long time I’ve looked forward to getting just a little extra sleep, some time in the evenings to relax, or not having to rush home to deliver milk or nurse my precious baby to sleep. Now that I’m down to pumping just once a day I see our journey quickly coming to an end. A part of me knows stopping is o.k. because our baby girl is getting more than enough nourishment from the food she’s eating, she took a liking to food much more quickly than our two year old and is drinking a single 8oz bottle per day. The other part of me wants to keep that small string attached to the two of us to let mommy know her baby girl still needs her.
There are many physical and emotional quirks that are happening as well, I feel my body making gradual changes in an attempt to get back to its old self. A sense of awakening is starting as I recognize our girls are getting older and exploring the world for themselves, pushing boundaries everyday. New opportunities are presenting themselves for me to explore and finally I’m able to see just a little clearer where once there was fog.
My husband and I are still busier than ever but entering a new season as a family. Just as summer has ended and we begin fall, my wish to all my sister mama’s is to embrace the season you are in with your little ones, it’s true what our mama warrior’s before us have said……………”the days are long and the years are truly short. ” Enjoy Them 🙂

Keep Calm and Help A Mom

As national breastfeeding month comes to a close, let’s focus on being connected and helping each other. Whether we nourish our children from the breast or bottle we all deserve to be supported and have a space we can come to and refuel our souls. Motherhood alone is enough to take calmness out of each day but remember we are our children’s source and with that comes a unique energy that needs to be rejuvenated. I urge and challenge you to talk to one another, look behind what you see; it can simply be a “hello” or “how are things going?” that can get a conversation going. For me, I meet many moms in the aisles of Target and it’s just a matter of time before we are talking birth! If you have questions, or just plain don’t know what to do about breastfeeding, being a mom, being a first time mom, sex after pregnancy, postpartum body or whatever your individual issue is reach out, send an email, google a support group or email us here at Well Done Babies and we will help, if we can’t you best believe we will find someone who can. You don’t have to walk this beautiful journey of motherhood alone…..Be Open and Receive!

Oh, to become a MOTHER

such a rite of passage

such an extraordinary experience…

like nothing else in the entire world…

your whole universe expands,

your heart grows bigger than you could ever imagine

and your existence shifts, dramatically, powerfully.

go with the force that pulls you open

and surrender to the newness that opens up in front of you.

commit to having no fear

surrender to the passage

and trust that

“all is unfolding exactly as it should”

(as it says in the desiderata)

a wonderful new world is about to open up

or perhaps already has,

and you are stronger than you ever knew!

and your coming into fUll blOOm

and this is your greatest gift!

seize it!

mmmmmmmmmmmmm yes,

pure magic.

pregnant mammas are magical!!!

two souls in one

your aura is magnified

you are glowing

enjoy it

take sweet good care of yourself

rest

sleep

sleep some more

don’t worry

nothing is more important

than what you are going through

a new life is growing inside you

a new soul has come to you!!!!

chosen YOU

as their mother

you are birthing new life

you are a divine channel

what a gift

take good care mammas

and don’t worry

let nature take it’s course

your body will know what to do

just relax and be happy

trust

trust

trust in the perfection of the universe~~~

infinite blessings
