Why Are America’s Postpartum Practices So Rough On New Mothers? – The Daily Beast

the thing to focus on here is the idea of a culturally recognized and accepted postpartum rest period. With these rituals comes an acknowledgment, familial and federal, that the woman needs relief more at this time than at any other—especially if she has a career to return to—and that it takes weeks, sometimes months, to properly heal from childbirth.

it’s not the signals that go to the brain from the body that matters, it’s what the brain decides to do with these signals that matters. ~

Keywords/Phrases: Divine timing; identify personal needs; wake up; rest responsibly;

These beliefs surface in layers… If they surfaced all at once, we would not be able to handle it — it would be too much of a challenge.

Spiritual Awakening…

The spiritual journey does not consist of arriving at a new destination where a person gains what he did not have, or becomes what he is not. It consists in the dissipation of one’s own ignorance concerning oneself and life, and the gradual growth of that understanding which begins the spiritual awakening. The finding of God is a coming to one’s self.

The Warrior’s Prayer

The Warrior’s Prayer

I am what I am.
In having faith in the beauty within me I develop trust.
In softness I have strength.
In silence I walk with the gods.
In peace I understand myself and the world.
In conflict I walk away.
In detachment I am free.
In respecting all living things I respect myself.
In dedication I honour the courage within me.
In eternity I have compassion for the nature of all things.
In love I unconditionally accept the evolution of others.
In freedom I have power.
In my individuality I express the God-Force within me.
In service I give of what I have become.
I am what I am:
Eternal, immortal, universal, and infinite.
And so be it.
