Thoughts are creative. That is why it is so important to become aware of your thoughts and to use language that supports your desire to become a mother. When you focus on 'fertility' rather than 'infertility' you are sending positive messages to your unconscious mind to create the right conditions for pregnancy and birth. After all, your baby is waiting for you.
At times, other people's thoughts might throw you off your game. Fortunately, there are simple techniques you can use to resist them. For example, if you are planning IVF and someone tells you that the procedure never worked for them, imagine yourself erasing that thought from a chalkboard. You are creative. If you're not particularly visual, let yourself feel what it would be like to pluck negative thoughts from your mind the same way you would pluck weeds from a garden. You can also click an imaginary 'cancel' or 'delete' button to eliminate any thought that triggers worry, fear or doubt. Then replace negative thoughts with positive ones like "My baby is waiting for me."
When people speak of their sadness and disappointment, you can remain fully present without owning their pain by holding loving space for them. Compassion is healing, pity is not. Fortify yourself agains the limiting thoughts of others by creating healthy boundaries. You are, in essence, preparing to plant a garden. A good fence will help ensure successful germination of new seeds as well as an abundant harvest.
Hypnosis creates a deep feeling of relaxation that helps to banish the stress associated with negative thoughts. Any hidden, unconscious thoughts and beliefs that might be at odds with your desire to have a baby are also identified and released during hypnosis. The part of your mind that creates, imagines and dreams becomes receptive to positive suggestions that will boost your confidence, bolster your courage, increase your enthusiasm and affirm a strong, healthy body.
