Women’s intuition. As I go out in to the world and share this method of Maternity Moves with more pregnant ladies, often they’ll get to the “a-ha” moment, usually all by themselves. Oh I get it, I’m working with the contraction! Indeed – you are! I came across Vidyamala Burch during the Mindfulness & Meditation Summit and she spoke eloquently about managing her own chronic pain. While birth isn’t actually chronic pain, it can sometimes feel like there isn’t an end. A simple task for you that is offered by Vidyamala:
- Closing your first
- Observe your breath
- Now breath
- Feel how your fist wants to unravel and open
Throughout the work we teach, our hands are active, the fingers are reaching and yes it’s hard work sometimes. But, then comes the release, the feeling of being longer, more expansive and softer. By opening up to the pain, we find the moment of pleasure, being in the moment and taking each moment as is comes.
