“I believe the choice to become a mother is the choice to become one of the greatest spiritual teachers there is”- Oprah Winfrey
“Motherhood is magical”, this is the feeling every woman would describe in her story of being a mother. Women are blessed with innate powers to withstand body hardships, be it menstruation, hormonal disorders like polycystic ovarian disorder (PCOD), thyroid, pregnancy or menopause.
The journey of being a mother starts the day she conceives. We all know that pregnancy is highly unpredictable, a woman is given a second chance to live her life. As scary as it sounds, motherhood is enchanting and sometimes unbelievable how a human can give life to another human. This is the innate power only a woman is bestowed with.
Only a mother can communicate through her mind and emotions to the little life growing inside her. There is a famous quote “what you sow, so you reap”, so during your journey of being a mother if you instill good values for yourself, believe in good then your child is sure to be a good soul. It is scientifically true that a pregnant woman should keep her cool, maintain peace, hear & see only good things, be positive throughout her pregnancy, so that her offspring is born with a mind or body unaffected.
Childbirth on one hand is a sweet and a memorable experience a woman will relish for lifetime, but the anxiety, stress, emotional trauma overrules the sweet experience. Practising Yoga, a form of therapeutic medicine heals the mind and body, makes one more conscious and gives the power to sustain through difficult times.
“The body is like temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in”- B.K.S. Iyengar.
The key to a calm cleansed mind, body and soul is Meditation Healing. This type of healing is a guided meditation by an experienced practitioner whose instructions connect with the energy points in the body. The spiritual realm, relaxed environment and the guidance paves way for relaxing the mind by enabling conscious breathing, expansion of lungs, smooth thoughts, release emotional trauma and empower one’s thinking.
The nine months through the childbearing period seems like a cake walk post child birth, but when you are experiencing at present or rewinding your mind to those anxious moments it may give you goosebumps! People in our country consider doctors to be god, especially for a woman during pregnancy, her midwife or gynaecologist is her god, sob tank and her saviour! For the anxious and inquisitive mothers to be, a possible relaxation can be achieved through
It’s necessary and good to discuss or speak to a person who can listen without passing a judgement. Your partner, gynae or you family may not be favourable for this. Reassurance, motivation and open ears are the three cardinal elements a professional counsellor could offer.
The second stage of motherhood is post child birth. During the first few months or almost up to a year it is common for new mothers to be anxious, obnoxious, perturbed and inquisitive. There is a constant self doubt in almost every newbie mother and is exacerbated due to the societal and peer pressure.
There is a constant rat race to be on top of the game though the woman is not in pink of her health! Unrealistic expectations, irregular sleep patterns, disturbed body clock create intense pressure, low self esteem, loss of motivation and postpartum depression!
There are many ways one can detox their mind and body. From Sattvic diet, body spa, exercise and yoga to meditation & spiritual healing, guided hypnotherapy are a few of them.
Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy and a complementary medicine, which awakens the subconscious mind and relaxes the mind, brings positivity, focus and confidence. The therapy is also used in treating inner pain and increasing self motivation. During this therapy a specialist will guide and help one enter a trance state of mind where one will have a deep concentration but will not lose control over their behaviour. This deep concentration will open the unconscious mind and enable decluttering & acceptance of new suggestions for improved health.
Being a mother is a priceless gift for a woman. As much beautiful experience the journey of being a mother is, it has a large share of anxiety, depression, trauma etc.
Just as enjoying every moment of motherhood is important, it is equally crucial to keep a healthy mind and body. More often than not when a woman enters this phase of life there is minimal to zero care for herself and this can have a long lasting effect on her health and well-being. Therapies like yoga, meditation and professional guidance like healing and counselling can be extremely beneficial in detoxing the mind and body.
