The power of the mind
Written by Sandra Cooze
For as long as I can remember, I had always wanted children. Yet, I had to wait for quite some time until it finally happened. But I am getting ahead of myself. Let’s start at the beginning of my journey into motherhood.
Before I had my son, my menstrual cycle was all over the place. Apparently this is a common problem on both sides of my family. This made me wonder though, if everything was ok with my reproductive system. In my early 20s I had an ovarian cyst removed and was told that the doctor saved the ovary but was not sure if it was functioning properly. A few years after my surgery I had my reproductive system tested. Long story short, the nurses who performed the tests concluded that one ovary was not working and the other was unclear. Basically, I would have to have surgery if I ever wanted children. To say I was devastated was an understatement.
For the next decade I kept telling myself that I would never have children. It was ingrained in my mind. Then when I met my husband, the subject of children eventually came up and after 4 years of marriage, we were ready to try. For the first two years, nothing happened. I did not become pregnant. After consulting my family doctor I went to see an OBGYN. He performed the exact same tests I had done all those years ago at the hospital. Only his conclusion was that everything was fine and in working order. Honestly, I did not see that coming. At first I did not know what to do with this information. I had been so sure that I could not get pregnant, yet desperately wanted to. And then I was told that physically, nothing stood in the way of me becoming a mother.
At the same time I started my journey into Reiki. During my level I training, all students had to perform practice treatments on each other. We learned the hand positions of a full body treatment and how to check the functionality of the chakras with the help of a pendulum. When it was my turn to lay on the table, my training partner used the pendulum on my chakras and was completely baffled. My Sacral Chakra (just below the navel) was completely blocked, since the pendulum did not spin at all. She called our Reiki Master and together they opened my chakra. Our Reiki Master had never seen such a severely blocked chakra before.
In a nutshell - what had happened was that by telling myself for so many years that I would never have children, I forced my body to comply by shutting down the fertility chakra. I learned a lot that day about myself and about the importance of the chakras and proper energy flow for a healthy body.
Two years later I gave birth to a healthy and naturally conceived little boy - my little miracle!
