My husband and I decided that we would enjoy a full year of newlywed fun after we got married, and that we would wait to start trying for pregnancy until our first wedding anniversary. With our intentions set, I began working with a naturopathic doctor and dedicated six months to getting in optimal health leading up to our first “try.” I had been experiencing a few health issues and wanted to do the best thing to prepare my body for conception.
I started with a cleanse to detox my toxic load and clear any parasites. Then I took supplements to rebuild my weakened digestive system, support my MTHFR mutation, and to replenish my body with nutrients. Afterwards, we had a fun summer in Europe which fueled my spirit with fresh inspiration, quality time with friends and family, and lots of fun on the beach (where I feel most at home). We then returned home to LA and I got pregnant on our first try during the ‘practice run,’ a month before our first wedding anniversary!
It felt so “easy” for us.
Our daughter was born in May 2018.
I had prepared mentally, physically, and spiritually, which allowed all of the energetic aspects to come together in the way we had hoped. However, a year and a half later when I was ready to try for Baby Two, my mind, body, spirit, and health were in a totally different energetic state.
I was tired from 20 months of sleepless nights, my body felt worn from lack of rest, my back was strained from carrying 25lbs on my hip all day, and my adrenals were racing as I kept up with building a business and being a mom. During that time I had been trying to perform at my best. I was giving so much of myself to my clients, my colleagues, and my business projects, and still trying to be a ‘super mom’ for my daughter on top of it all. I was running between baby classes and play dates, struggling to keep up with other moms who made everything look so effortless, as well as trying to maintain an active social life with my pre-baby friends, AND somehow trying to find quality time to spend with my husband. We spent many a night exhausted on the couch with Netflix, a baby monitor, and a bottle of wine. I was drained after 18 months of pregnancy and breastfeeding, sleep training and night wakings. My mind, body and spirit were all depleted.
I felt pulled in so many directions from telling myself I had to do it all. My nutrients were lacking, my anxiety was high, and I was running on pure adrenaline. I was functioning on steam.
I thought it would be just as “easy” for us to conceive as it was the first time around, so we agreed to start trying again at the beginning of 2020. My mind was set, I took a few supplements to prepare myself, but I kept ignoring the fatigue that was screaming at me. We fell pregnant immediately, but at 8 weeks we found out the pregnancy was unviable. I miscarried two weeks later.
I knew it was foolish to start trying for conception straight away. My intuition was telling me that I had to take the time to prepare my body, mind, spirit, and health just like I did the first time. I knew I needed to rebuild the energy required to conceive. I needed to cultivate the energy required to create new life and bring a healthy baby to term.
After this realization, I took some time to do some prep work (which I’ve turned into a course called “The Energetics of Conception”). This preparation began during some of the most difficult times in our lives with a global pandemic, earthquakes and fires in LA, riots, job loss, and a historic Presidential election. A general sense of anxiety was always on high and my nervous system felt constantly frazzled. We even moved to a new country for five months!
To make space, I laid off some of my work projects and sought support in the places I had needed it the most; my mind, body, and spirit, as well as some extra childcare for my daughter. I worked on clearing subconscious trauma I had been carrying with me from the past, and released some limiting beliefs about my abilities as a mother. I pushed the reset button on my health, prepared my body, and fueled my spirit (in addition to cutting out the nightly bottle of wine).
I made adaptations to my diet, relished in soul-nourishing interests, participated in energetically supportive activities, and sought help from the ancient art of Eastern medicine. Every week I went to regular acupuncture treatments, I drank custom daily herbal formulas, and of course, I did plenty of self-treatments for boosting my fertility with the quantum biofeedback machine.
Six months later, when I felt like my mind, body, and spirit were in a better place, I was ready to start trying again. It took a couple of months this time. I created a course focusing on the energetics of conception and as I followed it, applying my own protocols and theories to my personal conception journey, I conceived my second child.
Now, I have a ten module course and healthy baby boy who just turned eight months! My work as an energetic intuitive, reiki master, sound healer, meditation guide, and quantum biofeedback specialist all served to help me design the powerful course which brought him to me. “The Energetics of Conception” will support the four pillars of your mind, body, spirit and health, whilst energetically preparing you for conception.
If you are on your journey to motherhood and looking for ways to prepare yourself for pregnancy, or even if you have been trying to conceive for a while, then I believe this course will be a helpful resource to you during your conception journey. I believe that EOC outlines an effective approach towards conception, and I hope it will help you to bring your beautiful baby into this world.
