You may think everything needs to be perfect in order to have an Ecstatic Birth– a loving partner, the perfect birth environment, unwavering support.
This Conversation to Transform Birth with new mom Anysa Olivera shows that you can transcend ANYTHING if you have prepared with consciousness and commitment.
She had the rug pulled out from her at 35 weeks, losing her partner of 10 years AND she birthed during the height of the pandemic.
Despite all this she was able to drop in deep for her daughter’s birth.
“I made love to myself in the early hours of my birth, moved slowly and intentionally through my rushes and was surrounded by things that brought me pleasure.
I was in my body.
I was deeply human and animal tethered to this earth plane in no way I had ever been before.
I laughed and was joyful; I was empty and full.
I was lucid and when the time finally came to push my daughter, the ring of fire burned. I met the fire with pleasure as I pushed.
As I knew pushing her head was the climax of my birth journey, in the restful period I was in absolute pleasure.
I even recall looking up at all of the beautiful women around me and saying, “Ladies I feel soooo gooood!
“It was exactly what I had dreamed of.”
Watch the full interview and discover how, “Against All Odds”, she was able to experience such Ecstasy in Birth.
Childbirth can be intense but that does not mean it has to be painful.
Have you ever experienced intense euphoria?
An intense orgasm?
Or an intense moment of deep spiritual connection?
The intensity has to do with the amount of energy pulsating through your body, not the type of sensation you experience.
Did you know that your sense of smell gives you direct access to your primal brain?
This is such an important thing to know because so much of our sense of safety and our relationship to our sexuality is embedded and governed by our primal brain.
CHILDBIRTH, at its best, is wholly governed by the primal brain.
Once you know this delightful fact about the connection between scent and your primal brain, you can use it consciously in birth to access and create the conditions to support the optimal flow of labor: safety, surrender, love, PLEASURE!
Fall… back to school.. re-entry into our new masked world…
This time of year always feels like a new beginning, but now more so than ever.
Fresh starts are a period of conscious creation.
A time to feel into and honor our DESIRE.
What is true for you now?
Where do you want to go?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Birth is a BODY trip
In a culture that teaches us to live primarily in the mind, coming back to the body and letting it lead can feel alien, like speaking a foreign language.
Ecstasy lives in the body, but so does trauma.
Unresolved trauma is a major obstacle to a smooth and easy labor and delivery because it is held in the body, in our tissues, in the memory of our cells.
