Preparing your mind and heart

Since this course is a unique course of aligning our practice, service and understanding of our female body with the innate and deeply sacred intelligence of Mother Nature, I would like to offer some ways to deepen and align our hearts and mind in preparation with this Sacred understanding.


Please listen to this incredible enlightening essay by Dr Azra Bertrand as he connects our wise healing body with the intelligence of Mother Nature and confirms that each cell in our body is vitalised by Nature as Healing. He also weaves in the imprinting and healing around our births and rebirths as women.


The Savior by Dr Shefali is a very provoking piece on deepening our motivations and engaging ourselves in the self-reflection and inner work needed to engage in this way. As most of us feeling the pull to help people can be somewhat intertwined with our own feelings and need of feeling valued. This piece can help us reflect on our intentions and our needs to be the helper of people and always come back to a place of heart alignment.

From a place of neutrality we can also empower and raise people up to know that we are all our own healers and we are not responsible for the healing of others.

In birth and postpartum it is so important to lead Mothers to know they can truly trust their own intuition and practice it as they become stronger in their own selves and not dependent on us.

From a place of neutrality, reflection and integrity we can raise mothers to be their own healers – we get no credit, we are sitting silently in the background smiling because we know all the time SHE CAN!


Let’s meditate (find our own inner silent sanctuary) and set your own intention for this course. Take some time (about 10 minutes). Have a journal, your course notebook or paper you can write down and keep for the course. Sit comfortably and close your eyes.

Listen to the following meditation and when you are finished open your eyes and write down what is coming to you in response to the following questions:

Knowing, feeling, writing and creating from HOW YOU WOULD LIKE TO FEEL in alignment with you heart centre is how you will create this as a reality for you as you journey through this training.
