Do you know much about your own birth? Home or hospital; who was there; any stress or challenge; did you have direct contact with your mother? Have you ever thought about how your birth experience may have shaped your personality, habits, or modus operandi today?

Newborn yawnThankfully, awareness is growing about the importance of birth. Birth experiences have the potential to set our course for life! Perhaps there was a breathing challenge at birth; it wouldn’t be surprising if this person experiences particulars around breathing–a tendency to hold the breath, or even asthma. Or maybe there was danger to a baby’s life–and so her nervous system was set up in fight-or-fight from the get-go.

Babies automatically attempt to understand and heal their birth experiences, both emotionally and physically. When we recognize this, we can support them in their process.

Today marks the launch of the book, Women Living Consciously Book 2! In it you’ll find my chapter, “Our Life Tells Our Birth Story: How Babies Helped Me Heal.” Meet a baby in the midst of attempting to figure out his birth, and hear my story of how my own birth affected my life and what I did about it! Gain perspective on your own birth in the process, and why living with this awareness matters.

Living in a space of consciousness requires intention, attention, and openness. It asks that you explore and reveal parts of yourself previously hidden and perhaps ones you didn’t even know existed. Living consciously is not for the weak—it takes true strength, practice, and devotion—it takes courage.

Sharing their stories in this book are extraordinary women who have made significant shifts in their lives and in their ways of thinking. These women have empowered themselves through self-discovery, deep introspection, and even through unexpected tragedy or loss. Their transformations are nothing short of miraculous, and they speak to the undying vibrancy that exists in each of us.

We all share a common bond, and you’ll be empowered as you see yourself in the journey of these women—you’ll be encouraged and filled with hope. Allow the stories of Women Living Consciously Book II to guide and empower you on your own journey of self-discovery and conscious living.
