Happy Mama = Happy Baby!

Pregnancy Wellness

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. 🙂

I hurried into the Cisco 300-115 Exam local department store to grab1 some last minute Chirsmas gifts. I Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam looked at all the people and grumbled2 to myself. I would CCBA test be in Itcertpasses here forever and I just had so much to CCBA test do. Chirsmas was beginning Itcertpasses to become such a drag. I kinda wished that I could just sleep Cisco 300-115 Exam through Chirsmas. But I hurried the best I could through all the people to the toy department. Once again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these toys, and wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself in the Itexamplan doll Itcertpasses aisle5. Out of Cisco 300-115 Exam the corner of my eye I saw Passexambest a little Cisco 300-115 Exam boy about Passexambest 5 Cisco 300-115 Exam Cisco 300-115 Exam holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair Passexambest and he held her so gently. I could not seem to CCBA test help myself. I just kept loking over Itexamplan at the little boy and wondered who the doll was for. I watched him turn to a woman and he called his aunt by name and Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam said, “Are you sure I don’t have enough money?” She replied a Cisco 300-115 Exam bit impatiently, “You know that you don’t have enough money for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that she had to go and get Cisco 300-115 Exam CCBA test some Cisco 300-115 Exam other things and would be back in a few minutes. And Itexamplan then she left the aisle. Cisco 300-115 Exam Itexamplan CCBA test The CCBA test boy continued to hold the doll. Itexamplan After a bit I asked the boy who the doll was for. He said, Itexamplan “It is the Passexambest Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam doll my sister wanted so Itcertpasses badly for Chirsmas. She just knew Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam that Santa Cisco 300-115 Exam would Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam bring it. “I told Itcertpasses him Passexambest that Itcertpasses maybe Santa was going Itcertpasses to Passexambest bring it . He said, “No, Santa can’t go where Passexambest my sister is…. I have to give the doll to my Mama to take to her. “I asked Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam Passexambest him where his siter was. He looked at me with the saddest Passexambest eyes and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus. Itexamplan

My Daddy says Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam that Mamma is going to have to Itexamplan go Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam be with her.” Passexambest My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam looked at me again and Itexamplan said, “I told my Itcertpasses Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to tell her to wait till I got back from the store.” Then he asked me if CCBA test i wanted to see his picture. I told him I’d love to. He Itcertpasses pulled Itexamplan out some picture he’d had taken at the front of the store. He said, “I want my Mama to take this with Cisco 300-115 Exam her so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my Mama so very CCBA test much and I wish she dind not have to leave me.But Daddy says she will need to be with my sister.” Cisco 300-115 Exam CCBA test I saw that Itcertpasses the little boy had lowered Passexambest his head and had grown so qiuet. While he was not Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam looking CCBA test I reached into my purse and pilled out a Itexamplan handful Itcertpasses of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we count that miney one more time?” He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money in with his and we began to count it . Of course Passexambest it was plenty for the doll. He softly said, “Thank you Jesus for giving Itexamplan Passexambest me enough money.” Then the boy Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam said, “I just asked Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama can take it Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam with her to give my sister. And Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam he heard my Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam prayer. I wanted to ask him give for enough to buy my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t ask him, but he gave me CCBA test enough to buy the doll and a rose for my Mama. She loves white rose so much. “In a few minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled Itcertpasses my cart away. I could not keep from thinking about the little boy as I finished my shoppong in a ttally different Passexambest spirit CCBA test than when I had started. And I kept remembering a story I had seen in the newspaper several days earlier about a Passexambest drunk Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam driver hitting a car CCBA test and killing7 a little girl Itcertpasses and the Mother CCBA test CCBA test was in serious condition. The family was deciding on whether to remove the life support. Now surely this little boy did not belong with that story.Two days later I read in the paper where the Cisco 300-115 Exam family Itexamplan Cisco 300-115 Exam had Itcertpasses disconnected the life CCBA test support and the young woman had died. I could not forget the little boy Itcertpasses and just kept wondering if the two were somehow Itcertpasses Passexambest Itexamplan connected. Later that day, I could not help myself and I went Itexamplan out Itexamplan and bought aome white roses and took them to the funeral home where the yough woman was .And Microsoft 70-486 Practice Exam there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in the store. Cisco 300-115 Exam I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.
