Happiness and bliss come in many forms. For me, one of them is snow. I got giddy when I saw the first few snowflakes fall on Sunday and I had no idea that it was going to turn into 4-6 inches. Talk about blissful! Another thing that brings me happiness is sharing information with you that can shift your life and boost your fertility. I’m sharing some of that in today’s newsletter. If it triggers you, I encourage you to keep reading, and if you’re really brave, to schedule some time to talk to me about it!
Recently, I read an article by Chris Brogan where he talked about the difference between spending and investing. Here’s part of what he had to say:
“You spend on what gets spent. You invest on what develops into even more value.”
This is a distinction that many people often miss, especially when it comes to our health and well being. Spending can actually come more easily, because it has become so ingrained in our nature. Even when we feel like we need to keep a close eye on where our money is going, we spend on things like coffee and candy bars, things that are actually often detrimental to our future well being.
So why does investment feel harder to do? Investing in yourself is a deep act of self care and a stretch because it can be scary – it means change, it means growth, it means letting go of what isn’t working and shifting to ideas that do work. (tweet this)
Now all of that sounds good, but many people feel more comfortable living within their comfort zones. When it’s what you know, it can feel safe, even if it’s causing you pain and suffering.
So what does all of this talk about spending and investing have to do with fertility?
Your second chakra (located about an inch below your belly button) is associated with fertility, the uterus, the ovaries and with finances and person power! It’s also associated with the color orange.
When you have blocks around money, you are often also blocking your personal power and fertility. To me, this makes a lot of sense because when we feel like we can’t invest in ourselves (even if we know that’s what it takes to pull us out of a rut), we keep feeling stuck. When we experience that stuck and stagnant energy, it’s no surprise that our creative and reproductive energy is dampened. We’re not in the flow of creation.
So how can you strengthen your second chakra, learn to feel comfortable investing in yourself, and boost your fertility all at the same time?
Practice Malasana – This was my favorite yoga pose when I was pregnant because I felt like it gave me such a sense of power. Squats are known to strengthen the second chakra so it’s a perfect act of self-care to spend some time here.
Drink water – Water is associated with the second chakra, representing flow and movement. Make sure that you are drinking plenty of water (add a little lemon or opt for coconut water if it’s not your favorite thing to drink on it’s own).
Create a vision board of personal power – Tap into your creativity by making a visual representation of your personal power. This can get your creative juices flowing and help you to focus on what feels powerful and blissful to you.
Invest in yourself – Stretch yourself out of your comfort zone and reach out for support, knowing that this is not spending but investing, in yourself and the future of your family. Bringing together finances, fertility, and personal power in one action can melt barriers that once felt like impenetrable walls.
If you’re wondering what investing in yourself can look like, here’s what a client had to say about our time together:
“Initially I couldn’t even talk about wanting to have a baby; by the time we were nearing the end of our work, I was actively trying to get pregnant. That’s a huge leap for me.”
I hope this helps you to see in a new light something that you can be doing to increase your fertility, whether you are still dreaming of baby or actively trying.
And if you’re ready to step out of that comfort zone and have a hand to hold and support you as you do, know that I’m here for you. If you’re curious about what that looks like, I encourage you to sign up for one of the remaining Creating Fertile Ground Strategy Sessions this year.
Peace, Love, and Wellness,
