As men and women we possess both masculine and feminine qualities and are affected by both of these universal energies. During pregnancy, this can shift internally so you can feel more aligned with your feminine energy, although what is happening in the skies can have a profound effect on how you feel.
Ok ‘fess up – are you a worrier?
I don’t mean the odd feeling of concern or care for someone or a situation but the stomach churning, keeping you awake at night, majorly panicked by more things than not default pattern of behaviour that has become the norm for you?
If there was one negative emotion I would remove from our mind set and the world at large it would be the act of worrying.
For most women when they have a baby the thought of caring for their newborn is their priority and for some this feeling doesn’t change as their child grows.
Returning to work and leaving their child seems unthinkable. Their focus becomes more insular and their world revolves around their new family. They may have enjoyed their career before but it wasn’t something they felt completely passionate or aligned with.
Pregnancy is a time when you can definitely feel vulnerable rather than daring. Certainly for first time mothers you are stepping into the unknown. Your body changes and your perception of yourself can too.
If you have been working in your career for a number of years and have most of your days under control, the first few weeks with a new baby will generally turn that on its head.
Yesterday I woke up feeling like I could just go back to bed! I felt soooo tired. I loved my event last week and am excited about the buzz it is generating and the plans for taking the movement forward but just wanted to lie on the couch, watch the first day of Wimbledon and not speak!
So for a part of the afternoon I did! Yes, I know there are some benefits to being a MIW (Mum-in-waiting).
I love this short little video from Lisa Nichols. It’s simple but makes perfect sense.
