We are and have been under extreme pressure to conceive. After all, we are getting to that deadline in age. Each time we try to conceive, we both get nervous, and it just becomes an exercise in pushing the limit. Let’s try something else. Imagine all the cells in the body ready to receive. Scan your body. If there are some cells that are not ready to receive, simply ask them what they might need in order to receive. This may sound a bit crazy, but it does help to explore what the blocks are to conceiving. Listen carefully to the wonderful wisdom of the body. This is what is called a “full body response.” Then check out the images that may be coming up. Observe, notice, and gather information about those images. Do not try to fix or change them. Those images might just guide you into another image. Use some lubricant so you can take the time to explore those images….SLOWLY. Relax into the feeling of connection to your body, and to your partner’s body, and/or to the receiving of sperm to join with the egg in creation.
Many slang words do not reflect the positive affirmation of the body. It is difficult for many to even say the word “vagina.” In seminars for trauma survivors, women have named their vagina’s Virginia or Flower, whatever comes lovingly to mind. Later someone sent me a T-Shirt with the printing “I Love Virgina” (naming the state of Virginia)…which was then was changed by several women to “I Love My Virginia.” Later on, it became easier to say “vagina.”
