Portion from a recent client session:
Client expressing grief at not being able to birth her child at home, she ended up in the hospital with a difficult C section. She was devastated. Her dream of a perfect water birth at home was shattered.
She felt in her body where the grief centered and she was invited to allow an image to form that represented the grief and she saw dark mountains and a deep pool of vibrant blue water. She said,‚Äù I felt the grief and now I also feel peacefulness, an intelligent wisdom and a deep connection to my own gene pool of ancestral mothers‚Äù.
She entered the pool, submerged herself and felt nourishment coming from the water/womb and the roots of the mountains. She heard/felt these words, ‚ÄúThe live birth of your child is all that matters. There are millions of women who have had a worse birth and how many lost a child? You have a healthy, happy one!‚Äù Client realizes the gifts and lessons that were inherent in her experience; the ability to ask for help, knowing she couldn't and didn't need to do it alone and the development of her empathetic nature. She now has understanding and compassion for others pain when in the past she couldn't relate. This birth experience deepened her capacity as a mother and a woman and brought her closer to her Core Self, which is Universal in nature. She now has a new appreciation for her experience!
