When women prepare for pregnancy, often they focus on their physical body; they change their diet, take vitamins, increase their physical activity, etc., but conception and pregnancy do not only relay on a healthy body but on a healthy mind and spirit. Hypnosis can help you clear the past, help you let go of memories, core beliefs, and past hurt that stand in the way of your conscious procreation. There are several steps that are needed in order to reach our goals. We cannot go from A to Z without first going through B, C, and D. As it is hard to explain why we fall in love with another person, often it is hard to describe exactly why we want to have a child. It is a “burning desire” or, “your biological clock is ticking.” One thing we know for sure is that it is a gut feeling. While it is true that most things that are so heavily emotional are often indescribable, with procreation you have the responsibility of another human life in your hands. If you are willing to ask yourself some very frank questions, about you and your relationships to people, places and things, you can clear the pathway to a healthy, honest and loving relationship with your future child.
Fertility treatments can affect every aspect of your life. Research shows distress may impact the success of fertility treatments, they discovered that women who were the most anxious and depressed prior to their IVF treatment cycle were 93 percent less likely to conceive than the least distressed women.
In my book Painless Childbirth, I found an extraordinary correlation between the nine months of pregnancy, fetal development in the womb, and what I call the Nine Basic Human Rights of each individual that reside in our chakras. Many Eastern, and now quite a few Western healers, believe that there is a close correlation between the chakras and the spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being of a person. Chakras are centers of activity that receive, assimilate, and express life force energy. The activities in these energy centers influence our body shape, glandular processes, chronic physical ailments, thoughts, and behavior. When one (or more) chakras is blocked and the energy does not flow harmoniously, imbalance is manifested in all areas of life. According to medical intuitive and author, Caroline Myss, who described chakras in her work Anatomy of the Spirit (1996), “Every thought and experience you’ve ever had in your life gets filtered through these chakra databases. Each event is recorded into your cells …” in effect your biography becomes your biology. If you think the chakras is too esoteric a concept, remember that due to the similarities between the Chinese and Indian philosophies, the notion of chakras was quickly amalgamated to Chinese practices such as acupuncture, which is more and more recognized as a valid healing modality. If you have gone to a yoga class you also have probably been introduced to the concept of the chakras. Regardless of your belief in those energy centers, the Nine Basic Human Rights are very real, and a useful road map to healing. Einstein said that the definition of insanity is, and I paraphrase, doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. Too often we find and know why we are the way we are, hurt, frustrated, depressed, codependent, etc., but that knowledge alone does not heal. We need tools to use each and every day to change our lives.
So What Are the Nine Basic Human Rights?
- The right to have and to be here
- The right to feel and the right to want
- The right to act
- The right to love and be loved
- The right to speak and hear the truth
- The right to see and know the truth
- The right to know
- The right to divine power (or the right to procreate)
- The right to be one with the miraculous
When we become conscious of our relationship with each basic human right, and we are willing to do the emotional and spiritual work to heal or harness this relationship, we can obtain deep healing of body and mind as we prepare our selves for procreation.
