In today’s meditation, we will use the practice of positive mantra to infuse our subconscious with affirming thoughts. By changing our mindset, we can drastically change our experiences of pregnancy and birth. It allows us to release unhelpful beliefs and fears we might hold about these events in our lives. To get the most benefit from this meditation, repeated regularly throughout your pregnancy, especially in the days and weeks leading up to birth. Changing your mindset takes repetition and commitment, give it time to allow the process to work. As I recite the positive mantras, repeat them to yourself in your head. Breathe into your heart space each time we start a new mantra, and imagine the word sitting in your heart. It may feel unusual or strange at first, but as we practice this repetition and visualization, we can start to make these mantras a part of our own belief system where they are most powerful. Let us start by using the breath to move into a deep state of relaxation. Breathe in deeply to the low belly. Feel the side ribs all the way up to the top of the chest. Fill the entire lungs full with breath. Hold them full for a moment enjoying the pause at the end of each breath. And then gently soften and release on the exhale. Allow all of the air to leave the lungs pausing for a moment with the lungs completely empty before slowly breathing in again. Breathe in. Pause breathe out. Pull. Breathe in. Pause. Breathe out. or allow your conscious thinking mind to drift away as the body rests in complete relaxation. Allow the subconscious mind to receive the affirmations as I recite them to you.
