Happy Mama = Happy Baby!

This was such a contrast to what my experience would have been had I stayed within that stressful environment.
Hello Mama Moons!
Mother’s are the first teacher from the womb. Your baby is listening to and feeling your energy. What messages are you sending? Are they swimming in stressful toxic waters or blissed out in oceans of LOVE. While pregnant with my son Ahser, I was working at a very stressful job and was just miserable. I didn’t want my baby to feel all this stress, so I re-worked my finances and quit my job.
This was pretty extreme, but it worked out that I got a few nice work-from-home gigs that covered our expenses and allowed me FREEDOM to truly enjoy my pregnancy. We took pregnancy yoga class almost daily, long walks at the park connecting with nature and allowing the sun to shine on my belly. Weekend play at the beach. I even signed up for a sewing class where I began to make his first blanket (which by the way – still isn’t finished ha!)
This was such a contrast to what my experience would have been had I stayed within that stressful environment. Everyone around me, including my bosses, tried to convince me that this wasn’t the time to leave my career as a budding TV writer just on the brink of success. But it was the best decision I ever made! My baby and I were deliriously happy and within that joy, I birthed two happy babies: my son Ahser and my business Hariatma Yoga Herbs 9 years ago!
Thanks to all those yoga classes, I was able to take in my FREE time, I found my true calling sharing yoga, herbs and healthy living. This is something I never would have discovered within myself had I fearfully stayed within that high-stress environment that was financially more stable and appeared to present a brighter future…
This week in pregnancy yoga class we have been focusing on germinating and sprouting HAPPY YOGA for JOY! Let go of the things that are creating STRESS in your life. Clear the WEEDS so your little sprout can GROW in LOVE. 🙂
