Your view of the world acts as a filter through which all information is sifted and sorted. So any time you read a paper or blog, watch TV, listen to friends or receive any information from outside of yourself, you sift and store that information through the filter of your view of the world. And not only that, your brain is programmed to ensure that you’ll attract information which reinforces this view of the world!
So, what kind of world do you live in?
Is your world one of abundance and joy, where setbacks and challenges are just little bumps in the road, where the future is a bright beacon full of promise and the past is full of wonderful memories. Do you know lots of women your age who have got pregnant and you just need to wait your turn? Is your glass half-full?
Or is your glass half-empty? Do you live in a world of scarcity and struggle, where setbacks and challenges are huge barriers to be attacked and overcome, where the future is dark and uncertain and full of anxiety menace and peril, and your past has a negative influence on you today still? Do you hear everywhere and from everyone that eggs are limited, that the older you are the less likelihood you have of getting pregnant, do you know lots of women in your situation who are struggling to get pregnant? Is your glass half-empty?
I’d invite you to consider how, making your view of the world more positive, may make your experience in the world a whole lot more fun, effortless and optimistic. Even if you are already pretty optimistic, can you become more so? And if you’re not at all optimistic, might you not be doing yourself an extreme kindness to change that view, even a little?
What if, you lived in a totally positive, optimistic world, where all your dreams and desires came true? That belief in itself would be a great de-stresser and would allow you to hold a relaxed, positive and healthier state of mind and body – and that relaxed state of mind and body will help you optimise your chances of getting pregnant.
Stress creates an unhelpful internal physical environment which can reduce immune response and upset the hormone balance.
Your mind and body are not separate entities, they work together, so if you are constantly thinking that: “you’ll never get pregnant”; “everyone else is getting pregnant but you”; “you’re too old”; etc, etc, etc, then it’s hardly surprising if your body obliges by giving you what you expect. On the other hand, if you’re positive and have a high expectation that you will get pregnant, your body may well oblige you with what you expect!
I know which way of being I’d choose, what about you?
