What is possible for you to experience in the realms of Birth?What are your earliest images of the birthing process?
I remember sitting alone in front of a TV at about age seven and watching a Cesarian Section procedure on '60 Minutes'. I was fascinated and horrified all at once. In my little seven year old mind I put together that ALL babies must come in to the world in that way. I remember feeling afraid to have a baby when I grew up...yet I assumed that surely I would. This made my gut ache with worry in the deepest places.
When my awareness around 'how babies came in' shifted I can not really pin point.
Our media most often portrays birth as a 'big volume emergency intensive medical procedure'. A women is screaming with her head thrown back - being whisked by a team of highly trained professionals in white coats into the emergency room...her partner distraught and unempowered, not knowing if in fact their woman and child will survive.
Just for the record ((even though I know this does happen in some cases)) I have never seen, in my seven years of being with birth, quite as dramatic a scenario unfold. Yet, I am aware in talking to women and families that these images do live somewhere in our deep psyche.
I know that pain free birth is possible. I know that orgasmic and tantric birth is possible. I sense, on a spiritual level that our birth experience is somehow, perhaps, exactly what we need ((regardless of how it looks)) to unfold into our deeper soul growth work and more fully claim who we are as a human BEing in this Earthwalk - and I wonder.....
"WHAT IF the only images that lived inside of us around birth, were centering...power.full...deeply gorgeous...reverent...awed and honored?"
How then might our birth consciousness and experiences align with what we carried inside of our selves?
Let's start a collection of our most inspiring birth videos and images and begin to vibrate these blue prints into the collective. This is possible! Let's begin here and now. I've included a link to one of my favorite birthing videos "Naitre Enchantee".
I'd love for you to share the images that most inspire you here.
