RECEIVING HELP DURING POST PARTUM
You are in your most feminine energy through out the pregnancy / post partum process. One of the aspects of being in your true feminine is learning to receive. This is a time to be nurtured and allow help, love and energy from all the people that truly love you.
One of the most beautiful things that I see after a person gives birth is all the people that show up unconditionally wanting to celebrate and help. People really want to be there for you from their heart and be part of this special occasion. . This can be a challenge for those who are use to doing it all themselves. In today’s world so many women have taken on more of a male energy to survive .In this day and age we are use to doing, taking action, trying to control and making things happen. Where as being in our feminine is to allow things to happen, UN fold, to receive, to nurture, slow down, go with and trust the flow of life.
For those of you that have a hard time asking or allowing help, think of a time when you were there for someone and how good that made you feel to be able to help them.
By you allowing people to be there for you whether it’s coming over to watch the baby for 20 minutes while you shower, or picking up some bread at the store for you, or a shoulder to cry on. You are giving them a gift by allowing them to show up with an open heart and unconditional love and be of service to you.
WHAT DO YOU NEED FOR YOURSELF RIGHT NOW? What can you do to nurture yourself? Do you need a nap? Alone time, a walk or healthy food?
MAKING A LIST OF WHAT YOU NEED HELP WITH- keep it by the phone or by your computer so when people call to see how you are and if you need anything you can have your list handy. And ASK AWAY!!!
REMEMBER BY ALLOWING PEOPLE TO DO FOR YOU ,ARE GIVING THEM A GIFT OF BEING ONE OF BEING OF SERVICE ..
