Trying to Conceive Motivational Morning Speech

Trying to Conceive Motivational Morning Speech

(by Fiona Kacz-Boulton)

The way to improve your mood is via your heart and your head

 

  • Are you ready to feel good on your fertility journey?
  • Are you ready to take back control and feel energised, refreshed, positive, hopeful and leave the heart-ache of the disappointing past behind you?
  • Read to optimise your mood?

When you change your brain chemistry and release ‘feel good’ hormones it can help to optimise faster fertility success.

 

We can only feel one emotion at one time so if you can master your mind and master your emotions you can master your physiology (and enhance your chances of conception and holding your pregnancy through to full term).

 

Your brain is like a sponge in the first 20 minutes

When you wake the first 20 minutes is the best time to help re-programme your mind and turn your mood and day into something positive to help you on your fertility journey

Restore Emotional and Physical Wellbeing – How to tell when Chakras are out of balance

How to Restore Emotional and Physical Wellbeing

Upset Young Woman Sitting Alone on Bench Outside with Her Head in Her Hand and Clinched Fist.

Restoring emotional and physical wellbeing will help you to manage your moods, to feel
better, to experience fewer negative emotions (such as hate, anger, sadness, grief, disappointment, worry, fear, resentment, guilt and so on).

When you free yourself from these emotions you feel more in flow with life, more in control, more in balance, less moody or irritable, instead you are more ‘like yourself’ and more importantly more happyJump for Joy

Epigenetics tells us that our internal and external environment has a direct influence on our genes and DNA. It tells us that the way we respond to stress, what we eat, our emotional state, etc. will have a direct influence on sperm and egg health.

When you embark down your fertility journey, you can look at it as a wonderful learning opportunity for you to understand who you are and how you can be a better version of yourself so you can create a better baby.

It all starts with wellbeing. To be a well being you need to be in a state of harmonic resonance… Because we are made of energy.

Most of us live in a world oblivious about the subtle energy around us. The exiting thing is that your fertility journey has brought you to this point where you are now about to dive into the sea of infinite possibilities that this subtle energy work has to offer.

Scientifically proven

Science has proven –

  1. There is a vibrating field of energy around all things
  2. Matter comprises mostly of empty space

Did you know subtle energy can be transformed through mindful intention? (You can learn more about this in my Mind-Mastery component of my Fertile Lifestyle Course and Programmes. We have all heard of “mind over matter” and have seen it come to life with yogis sitting in loin cloths in the freezing Himalyas, meditating without getting sick or dying. They have mastered their mind and their body.

We see people working with this energy all the time. Qi gong practitioners, Reiki practitioners, energy field healers – they can all feel and work with this subtle energy.

Now that you are fully aware of the presence of invisible energies, let’s discuss some of its functions:

Our body's energy system - the layers of the energy field correspond with the 14 chakras and energy flows through the body via meridian linesAs this picture illustrates we experience energy transactions – energy moving through us; to us and from us. We have a torus (flow of energy around us); an energy field, chakras.

These energetic transactions occur through the aforementioned modalities, as well as our thoughts, feelings, attitudes, actions and intentions.

So, now that we have established that all things are energy (and that humans are too), we can go one step further with your understanding in that humans are constantly transmitting and receiving energy. Your subtle energy bodies (layers) influence the functioning of your body (your physiology) and they are directed by your intentions.

For example, when you are having a conversation, your intention holds a particular vibration. This vibration is not only transmitted to those you are speaking to but also into the space around you. When people walk into your space (or the room you are in) they will pick up on your ‘vibes’ which they will either like or dislike or feel neutral.

What are Chakras?7 Chakra System

There are 14 Chakras (energy centres), but the seven main chakras are energy centres, connected to nerve ganglia in our body.

The expert on Chakras, Anodea Judith says our chakras are a system offering a complete way in which we can self-diagnose and heal by mapping the journey of our consciousness. She states in her writings The Chakra System (2000) “this map navigates the connections between the spirit and matter, mind and body, heaven and earth. It shows you how the inner dimensions of your own spirit align with the sacred architecture of the world around you. Like any map, it does not tell you where to go, but shows you where you can go.

How to tell when Chakras are out of balance

Just as energy gets blocked in our body (manifesting in “knots”), chakras can become blocked too. When this happens you can become stuck in repetitive patterns. When this happens it leads to

  • Addictions; or
  • Being stuck in a relationship; or
  • Chronic illness; or
  • Obsessions; or
  • Annoying bad habits

What causes chakras to become blocked?

According to chakra expert Anodea Judith, unresolved difficulties that you have encountered in your life (especially those in childhood) can cause a blockage in one or several chakras.

See below for more information about each of the seven main chakras, how imbalances and blockages present themselves and how to self-diagnose.

Checklist for improving success rates of Embryo Transfer

How to improve Embryo Transfer success

So happy! Yay! I did it! Fertility Success!

Going into your embryo transfer it is natural to feel nervous, anxious, stressed and even feeling elements of doubt that “this time around will be a success.”

 

The more you are told to relax, the more it can irritate you and leave you feeling a lack of understanding between the person who told you to relax.

 

So, what is the formula for success pre-embryo transfer?
Mind mastery!

 

The optimum treatment plan (a schedule of strategies designed to guide you step by step down the path of improving Embryo Transfer success is that you need to be confident.

Below is a comprehensive list for you to read through. Ideally you will read each point and “tick it off.”

 

If you can tick off 100% of these points you can easily instill the confidence required on a conscious level, so when habitual fears enter your thoughts you can dismiss them with the knowledge that you are on-track.

 

Here is a video reminding you of the importance of ensuring you following along 100% to your fertile lifestyle plan to ensure you improve your chances of achieving faster fertility success.

Remember – I’m here for you

 

It is essential you get in touch with me if:

  1. There is anything on the list below that you feel you do not understand or;

  3. If you are unsure if what you are doing is 100% correct for your personal fertility journey.

 

Checklist for omptimising Embryo Transfer success

 

  1. Ensure you have done the ground-work and laid the best foundation via living a fertile lifestyle to improve your health on a cellular level.

 

  • Follow your personal nutrition plan

    • This is done with organic whole foods; clean water (not tap water or plastic bottled water); and supplements that do not contain unnecessary fillers, binders or worse still fertility inhibitors eg soy, corn, maize and magnesium stearate (even though these are commonly found in many “fertility supplements”
    • Body test regularly to ensure your body is getting what it really needs
    • Avoiding processed foods (they are linked to being carcinogenic – meaning they cause cancer. Note, anything that causes cancer causes infertility. Read more)
    • Avoiding caffeine
    • Avoiding alcohol
    • Avoiding sugar as much as possible

 

  • Know what foods help and what foods hinder fertility

 

  • Know what cookware/cooking methods hinder fertility

 

  • Know what essential oils help and hinder fertility

    • This information is detailed within the Articles of the website
    • You can Body Test to see what essential oils are beneficial to you right now

 

  • Follow your personal exercise planIMG_1395mat

    • Leading up to Embryo Transfer you would have been following along to QiYoga® in the form of my Fertility Yoga DVD and given other personal exercises or restrictions relevant to your bespoke fertility requirements
    • On the day of Embryo you can do:
      • Hip Stretch
      • Downward Dog
      • Cat
      • Child
      • Pigeon
      • Neck Bridge

  • Do your Mind Mastery exercises IMG_1260FINAL-1

 

  1. Learning to love, honour, respect and work with your body

    • Love is the movement of truth
    • Real love is a life-giving energy
    • Pressure never changes love
    • Love does not self-reflect
    • Love is kindness
      • Ask yourself if you have learned to love your vehicle for whom your name has been bestowed? (Your physical body).
      • Do you love yourself and accept your limits?
      • Do you trust that your body is working with you at all times, never against you? That you are a team?
      • Deeply loving yourself and recognising your body is made up of the best employees you will ever get and they always follow your command, even your unconscious ones, so when you master your mind you can master your body and your life. (Return to Mind Mastery exercises to strengthen this aspect if you need to).

Listen to Kirtan!

  1. Understand who you really are

    • As you know, you are more than your physical self. You are a multi-dimensional being with infinite potential. Move out of your thoughts and feelings to access your Being so you can live consciously and be in line to receive the greatest gifts that life has to offer

 

  1. Know it is not about your fertility – it is about you

    • When you understand your greatness, shed your limiting beliefs, step into your power, embrace your brilliance, shine and expand your consciousness your baby will take form, thrive and survive

 

  1. Understanding Embryo Transfer from a Spiritual and Conscious Perspective
    • You are a conscious spiritual being creating another conscious spiritual being so read more about Embryo Transfer from this perspective via my article of the same name.

 

 

What to do on or by the day of Embryo Transfer

 

Listen to the mp3 meditations:

  1. The Egg Journey
  2. Embryo & Mother Re-union

 

What to do After Embryo Transfer?

 

Due to the fact it can take between 5 – 7 days for the embryos to securely anchor to your lining post-transfer I advise you live mindfully, gracefully and take things easy.

 

For the first 3 days:

Enjoy bed and sofa rest and have your list of specific meditations and Mind Mastery techniques tailored to your needs at hand.

  • By controlling your thoughts:
    • You can keep stress and anxiety to a minimum
    • Increase your body’s healing ability
    • Deepen your connection to your growing baby and your body (when you are pregnant your intuition is more heightened and finely tuned than ever!)
  • Do several things a day that bring you joy. Joy is the key to fertility and parenthood success. It is the highest vibration and will maximise your chances
For the first 7 days:
  • Do not have a bath
  • Do not have a shower that is too hot or too cold
  • Keep driving short distances to an absolute minimum
  • No heavy lifting
  • No vacuuming
  • No movements or chores that require the intensive use of abdominal muscles
  • No strenuous exercise
  • Slow, peaceful “Buddhist Meditation” walking for 30 minutes from day 4 onwards to help stimulate circulation of life-force energy, blood and oxygen
For days 7 – 14:
  • You are intuitive – your mind and body are connected from all the Mind Mastery exercises you have been doing so you will be intuitively guided by your own wisdom as to what to do. Contact me at anytime if you are ever in doubt.
  • Trust that you will not do anything you may come to regret later
  • Your baby needs positive vibes, so you being in a state of positivity will be key – if something stressful arises, use the specific “7’s Breaths” and other breathing techniques I have taught you
  • Remind yourself:
    • Once your embryos have been transferred into your uterus, they are safe and will not “fall out.”
    • People in the developing world have babies all the time, they are not as mindful, healthy, nutritionally balanced and relaxed as you are – so feel your situation is advantageous and therefore the odds are stacked in your favour!

I hope this article has given you guidance and insight into your conscious fertility journey.

5 Keys to Faster Fertility Success – Get Pregnant, Stay Pregnant

The 5 Keys to Faster Fertility Success

All too commonly we are seeing the rise in rates of infertility. Each year I see more and more clients who have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, PCOS, fibroids, endometriosis, low egg reserve, sperm with low mobility and/or motility as well as other issues they have been told are preventing them from naturally conceiving.

However, there are things that each of us can do to naturally boost our fertility! Today I’m sharing with you how you can change your chances with the 5 keys to faster fertility success.

  1. Mind Mastery

    When we master our mind, we master our life. Have you ever noticed that sometimes you’ll be exposed to a stressful situation and deal with it pretty well, yet faced with that exact same situation at a different time (maybe you were a bit tired, had pre-menstrual tension, or had a lot going on at the time) and that same situation really affected you?

    Being human means that sometimes our levels of resistance to stressful situations is impaired, however there are steps we can take each day that work to strengthen our internal musculature. Just like we exercise to build our physical muscles, by using mind mastery techniques and specific fertility meditations we bolster our internal musculature which in turn makes us better able to cope with stressful situations.

    Mind Mastery is a unique aspect of the Fertile Lifestyle Programme that helps to remove conscious and sub-conscious mental and emotional blockages hindering fertility and pregnancy success (including miscarriage fears and “IVF recovery”when IVF fails).

    For specific techniques see our article Techniques for Clearing Trauma, Mental Blocks and Limiting Beliefs.

  2. Eliminate toxins

    Given the highly chemical environment in which we live our bodies are constantly bombarded with toxic exposure from a range of sources including the food we eat, what we drink, body products, cleaning products and even our relationships.First we need to be aware of the sources of exposure to toxins, then reduce our exposure and finally detoxify the cumulated toxins that are stored in fatty deposits around our mid section and in our liver.

    For more information about the sources of toxic exposure, see our articles:
    Avoiding Toxins for Fertility
    Bathroom and Personal Care Products

    To learn about how to naturally detox, see my articles:
    Why Activated Charcoal Can Help Your Fertility Journey
    Detoxing for Fertility

    Another source of toxic exposure that we often ignore is that from relationships. You can be drinking all the organic green smoothies, meditating like a monk, eating chia puddings and exercising to get fertility fit, but if you’re not addressing the toxic relationships in your life then you will still be placing your body under undue stress which can inhibit fertility.

    Each relationship is different so your approach to dealing with the stress they may be causing you needs to be unique to the other person involved as well as within your boundaries of self-love, self-respect, your needs and your values. I have many strategies I can share with you to help you improve your mood (and energy levels) when dealing with this situation.

  3. Whole food nutrition and superfoods

    Eating a diet rich in whole foods is essential to improving your nutrition and boosting your chances of fertility success. By whole foods I mean food that is in it’s original state. Vegetables and fruits, nuts, seeds, eggs, fish and meat that has not been processed. And by not processed I mean, it doesn’t come in a tin or packet.

    I also suggest that my clients take certain superfoods to help support their body to gently detoxify and certain superfoods can be helpful for specific fertility ailments. And yes, the term superfood is thrown about these days and people are labelling everyday foods as superfoods. However, to be a superfood the food itself must be highly nutrient dense per gram of nutrition. I.e. they pack a punch. Hence, while foods like organic kale and blueberries are amazing and highly beneficial for different reasons, they are not superfoods.

    Not all superfoods were made the same!

    If you’re going to buy superfoods from your local health food store please read the label first. If they contain any binders, fillers or flowing agents (such as magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide or maltodextrin) they are an inferior product and may be causing more harm in the long term than good. For more information about the benefits of different superfoods and how they can assist fertility see our article Superfoods for Fertility.

    Did you know there are certain foods that inhibit fertility?

    Yes, there are foods that make you infertile. These include GMO’s. What are the worlds most genetically modified crops?

    1. Soy/Soya (unless the soy is organic + fermented)
    2. Corn/Maize
    3. Rice

    So it’s best to make sure these are not in any supplements you buy too!

  4. Sleep and stress management

    Most people don’t get the recommended 8 hours sleep a night, and even if we do, it’s rarely uninterrupted. Studies have now shown that the duration of sleep isn’t quite as important as the quality of sleep. Unfortunately, with many of my clients I see that inadequate and poor sleep are often precursors to hormone imbalances which can prevent fertility success.

    To help improve the quality of your sleep we suggest:

    • Sleeping in a completely blackened room, the darker the better. This includes covering bedside clocks and lights on electronic devices. We have light receptors in our eyes and our skin, so even if your eyes are covered this won’t be enough.
    • Create a bedtime routine. Yep, just like when you were little. Many of our parents had us in a solid bedtime routine and for good reason, it helps us to wind down and improve our sleep quality. From about 2 hours before going to bed, turn off bright lights, including the TV and anything with a blue light screen (yes – that means no computers, phones or devices).
    • Ideally go to bed by 10:00pm. Sleeping the two hours before midnight can be the most beneficial for us.
    • No caffeine after 2:00pm. We all know that caffeine does not aid sleep, so stop drinking it early in the day to prevent it keeping you awake, this includes coffee, green tea, black tea and most processed (non-raw) chocolate.
    • No strenuous exercise 2 hours before bedtime. Again, high intensity exercise elevates our stress hormones and will prevent you from being able to sleep properly. Relaxing exercise such as yoga may be beneficial before bed.

    Now that you’ve got your sleep sorted, it’s time to address stress. My favourite stress busting technique is meditation!

    Do you find yourself saying: “but I can’t, I’ve tried in the past and it doesn’t work for me”. There are many types of meditations. I teach five different styles and I
    guarantee I can teach anyone how to meditate. At first, meditation is challenging. Just like learning any new modality, it takes time and practice, but don’t be put off. Any time you spend “trying” to meditate does help your body to relax and in turn is better equipped to deal with stress.

    If you are not meditating for fertility, how can you expect your meditation to get you fertility results?

    For more information about meditating for fertility see our article Meditation – Fertility Medication. I also have a range of highly specific meditations available for download here.

  5. Getting the “right” exercise

    Exercising for fertility isn’t about getting on a treadmill and running 10 miles. In fact, that would possibly be one of the worst types of exercise for fertility. Being fertility fit focuses on increasing the blood flow to the reproductive organs through very specific exercises and also reducing the stress load on the body. Long, intense exercise has been shown to increase cortisol levels (rather than reduce it). To optimise fertility, we want to reduce cortisol levels.

    I highly recommend that any woman on her fertility journey who is keen to naturally increase her chances of fertility success utilise a structured fertility exercise regime. We offer a fertility yoga DVD that has helped countless women on their road to faster fertility success. Click here for more details.

    If you would like specific information about exercises for male fertility or when to exercise (pre and post ovulation) then get in touch with me directly: fiona@awakeningfertility.com

By implementing these 5 keys to faster fertility success not only will you be improving your fertility chances, you will also feel a lot better (especially without those toxins), have more energy and increase joy in your life. Vitality and joy are the two essential catalysts for pregnancy success.

How to Balance Yang Energies For Fertility When Trying To Conceive

coppia 3

This is an interesting concept. You see, Yang energy is the masculine energy. It is the fire, the passion the “go-getter” attitude, the “keep pushing; keep soldiering on; keep achieving; keep earning; keep on keeping on.”

Yang energy is not meant to be consistently in use. If it is it leads to chronic stress disorders… And we all know sub fertility is mostly brought on due to consistent bouts of long-term, high level stress which turns fertility off.

So, in this male dominated society we live in, whereby women are up against men and expected to work just as hard and just as long it means we adopt a male attitude and in doing so hold a “yang” dominant energy vibration.

How to be feminine in a masculine world

 

Read more about how to be feminine in a masculine world via our How to Balance Yin Energies for Fertility When Trying to Conceive article, here.

How yin or yang are your personality traits?

Refer to this table below to see where you fit on the yin and yang trait scale:

Yin Yang Personality Trait Scale

Did you know we can be acting yang but have too much yin?

When we are yin dominant our body feels heavy, we feel lethargic, sluggish, unable to focus clearly at all times.  Additionally, we may hold too much damp in the body caused by stored grief (which often effects the lungs). Depression is also a sign of too much yin.

If you are wanting to conceive but need to boost your yang energy because:

  • Your acupuncturist told you that you are yin dominant or have too much yin;
  • Your Traditional Chinese Medicine herbalist said you are yin dominant or have too much yin;
  • You can relate to what you have read above;

Then we recommend the following solutions for you

You can try this 6 minute QiYoga sequence (suitable for fertility and throughout pregnancy)

    In addition you can:
  1. Look at exercising to balance your Qi energy flow – QiYoga run annual courses and workshops on how to do this, see here
  2. Try the videos and links to exercises that stimulate yang energy, here
  3. Mentally it is vital you remain in a yin state to keep your parasympathetic nervous system activated and in balance. This keeps your body is a restorative state and the fastest way to achieve this is through supportive fertility meditations.
Getting the right type of support is essential.
