Fertility friday: the truth about vulnerability
I understand now that the vulnerability I've always felt is the greatest strength a person can have. You can't experience life without feeling life. What I've learned is that being vulnerable to somebody you love is not a weakness, it's a strength. ~ Elisabeth Shue
There is tremendous power in acknowledging where you are. Restoring your fertility is about being vulnerable enough to say you are afraid, that you don't feel good enough or deserving of the dreams you have for your life. The pure raw truth of where you are at any given moment will set you free.
I realized one day that I had been pushing down my feeling of disappointment because acknowledging them would be very inconvenient while nurturing my two small children and supporting my husband as a thriving entrepreneur. I had no time to be with these uncomfortable feelings!
Resisting creates such discomfort. I went into the bathroom and turned on the fan. I faced the truth about my deep feelings of shame and feeling unworthy. I felt as though I was being choked while these energetic masses surfaced. Tear by tear, I honored and released these undigested emotions. After about 15 minutes of sobbing big juicy healing tears of shame and grief, I recognized the little girl that required all of my love. Probably for the first time in my life. When I straightened back up and dried my eyes, I felt tremendous gratitude for my journey.
Allowing yourself to be vulnerable reveals a power and courage that is far deeper and wiser than the appearance of a being "strong woman."
Each time you embrace your vulnerability and allow your fears to emerge, you deepen and strengthen your core. Moving through fears is part of the journey as a Pregnant Visionary. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable builds a real, sustainable foundation for you to conceive and support the growth of your Vision.
