Rule of the heart:
Listening − listening to your inner voice
The Implementation Tool:
Your special ringtone − listen to your ringing bell
Pregnancy brings with it many emotions such as joy and excitement, but also concerns, fears and pressures. This can have a devastating effect on your body and mind during pregnancy. It is important to act and treat these issues in order to reduce these tensions. The same should be done for the birth.
It is important that you listen to your fears and face them, so that you can overcome them. Your body speaks to you. You should listen to your ringing bell.
Once you start to listen to your bell, you can harness all the tools that are necessary for you to maintain peace and calm.
If you do not listen, your warning bell will keep ringing. Do not ignore it. It wants to tell you something.
It is important not to get used to the sound of the ringing because then it will be hard for you to notice it.
Every woman hears her bell ringing in a different way. One can feel it in her stomach, another can experience it through headaches. Learn to recognize your ringtone(s) and respond to it.
When you listen to your bell, it indicates that you're committed to yourself and your personal development.
You are committed to yourself and your baby and to finding a way that will guide you through a positive and peaceful pregnancy and childbirth.
When you listen to your ringtone, it sometimes involves making decisions that are not always simple.
You have to decide where to deliver your baby: at home or in a hospital; what kind of pain medication you’ll want and who will be present at birth. Many women now opt to find out the sex of their baby, but some still prefer not to know. There are a lot of decisions to be made regarding maternity leave, and you should choose whether or not you will donate your baby’s umbilical cord blood. You will also have to think of names for your baby and decide whether or not to breastfeed.
But don’t worry, your inner voice will guide you.
Do you know how to recognize your ringtone?
Many women feel that they need to be in a quiet place in order to hear their inner voice. But many busy women don’t have the opportunity to fit even a moment of silence into their lives. The following tools will help you find your calm even with noise around you, so you can listen to what your inner voice is telling you.
“When we talk about understanding, surely it takes place only when the mind listens completely – the mind being your heart, your nerves, your ears – when you give your whole attention to it.”
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti (Writer, speaker)
