Why is Mother Nature Pushing the Pause Button?
Many do not soul search until something that truly matters is threatened. But the great fact is this; you are a caterpillar ready to become a butterfly. Did you know that under all of your fertility struggles there is still progress being made on your behalf? Even though you cannot see it the most powerful of changes is occurring because any growth that emerges from deep within you is fertile energy. “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over…” don’t give up before the miracle, before you emerge a butterfly. We all have wings but we don’t all use them. Now, we are being asked to fly.
About More Than You Think
Where we have been on this journey, ‘thinking’ has become our worst enemy and, fertile Living shows us how to make it our greatest ally. We all need time to reset and refresh and “reboot.” And when we don’t do it for ourselves, nature finds a way to do it for us. And now, we are asking more from life so life, as it seems, is now asking us to meet her halfway with a new way of being. “The pause” does not mean barren, only fallow. There is nothing *wrong* here, just that in her wisdom, what if Mother Nature has pushed the pause button on our behalf until we rest enough to become ripe and juicy? Mother Nature knows best and knows the exact ingredients needed for this perfect baby cake, whether we like it or not.
Under it all, we are all energy. Science tells us that what is seen by the naked eye is 4% of the known Universe. The remaining 96% is unseen, and so only 4% of your fertility process is the manifested baby. You have 96% that is unseen available to you, energy working tirelessly on your behalf, behind the scenes, within the core of you. What makes up this “energy” is a combination of your beliefs, your thinking, your heart and emotions, your ambition and desires, your attitude and outlook, your unique one-of-a-kind soul and spirit. It is all moving toward creation, even now. What you are learning to do is tip the scale to lean more toward life than you ever have before.
Through the depths of our pain dol we reach the height of our joy. The most precious of jewels found deep in the earth have been through great fires and trials. You are also of the earth, and your treasure is being unearthed even now. Like the diamond, this pause, when used to its full advantage, will carve us out, season us, soften us, and bring to light that which must fall away, that wasn’t strong enough to stay, that wasn’t serving your DNA or the life of your child. Our struggle is proportional to how tightly we are holding on to that which we are being asked to let go of. Even our child, if we are holding on too tightly. Whatever it is, rest assured it is not serving you. Mother nature only serves the highest good. It is not personal. But when we need a “makeover” she is sure to help us get there one way or another.
Know the difference: If there is no permanent tissue damage, know you are fallow, not barren. Mother Nature in her innate wisdom is pushing the pause button for you, for a reason that can only serve to improve your ability to show up as a viable option for growing and nourishing a life. Any farmer knows a field must rest between crops to allow the soil to become rich again, just by allowing it to be still to let nature take its course. If we rush or force it and do not honor nature’s timing, the soil will be too depleted to bear fruit (barren). We will be wasting our life force energy forcing something that wasn’t organically ‘meant to be’ until a few months from now perhaps, when we have allowed earth and life to work their magic; all elements and chemicals are aligned, perfectly combining in a proper way in its proper time.
According to Bruce Lipton and Epigenetics, this is very real. We DO have power to help our fertility by changing the environment of our cells. That means healthy in all areas of living, inside and out. Not much probably needs to shift, but as we become aware of what is fertile and not fertile in our behaviors, attitude and way of life, we grow in the direction of our dream.
Do you know, without a shadow of a doubt you are going to be a mother? Start here. Let your inner guidance and inner knowing be your strength. Think for yourself, trust what you know.
There is nothing wrong with how or what we create – just as long as we do. Some have children, others learn they were meant to create empires. It is the way nature balances out the population. How we contribute good to the planet and what is the best way to do that becomes our higher question. Trust your inner knowing, clarify the true, deeper calling within you, and never give that up. The Universe does not offer up a desire to us without giving the means to see it through to fruition. We are just being asked to look at it through a different lens is all, and this new lens could very well make all the difference. Like a filter, this new lens purifies what passes through it to allow only the best qualities through.
What if the answers to infertility not only lie with omitting GMOs and toxins on the outside, but what of the inside? What if the quality of our inner life helped to spark and ignite this little star we are trying to birth? For example, everyone wants to feel happy, connected, free and supported. Have you lost touch with any of these? Are you remaining connected with your inner peace, creative flare, playfulness, open heart or kind nature? What if we are being invited to unwind from a behavior or attitude that is not so good for us or, more importantly, for our child? Only you can know what that is for yourself, but the very act of awareness toward self-care, service and nurturing can yield wondrous results when it comes to ‘activating’ our fertility.
I believe in my deepest heart that the wisdom of earth and the universe is speaking directly to you in such a way that only you have the key to unlock it for yourself through the simplest of acts. Simple and good, are the cornerstone to a pure life.
