Maybe you are like me, but I always found when reading books and materials about fertility – the topics surrounding the technical details of what your LH, FSH, ovulation, progesterone, temperature, pituitary glands all were supposed to be doing – I would usually be put right to sleep. Maybe it was a combination of the fact that the topics were hard to understand as well as not grasping how it could directly help me conceive. I suppose I was always looking for the magic bullet, and that wasn’t it.
However, I now realize that through our ability to visualize and tap into the incredible mind/body connection, this physiological-understanding is of supreme importance.
A friend of mine, who is a Cornell-educated ER doctor who is also suffering with brain cancer, does guided visualizations every day that help her physiologically “cleanse” her body. She is a huge proponent of what we are doing, and has taken the time to review our scripts and provide feedback. It’s her tenet that the more you know about HOW your body works, the more technical you can be with your visualizations, the better you can “guide” your body to do exactly what you tell it.
Candace Pert, PhD., author of Molecules of Emotion also mentions this same phenomenon on her book, speaking about an experiment she had done with her own body in visualizing a rush of positive endorphins: “It was clear that the knowledge I had of physiology – just where the endorphins were located and how they were secreted – had enabled me to consciously intervene and intentionally change my molecules.”
In summary, the more you know, the better you can visualize, the more effective you can be at finding your body’s true harmony. Which further confirms my theory at the outset, which is there is no magic-bullet. It takes time to learn how the body functions, and we have taken great strides to provide detailed education information in our program introduction and throughout the website. But the more you put into it (and yourself) the more you will get out of it.
As always, let us know how we can help!
