Words of Support and Encouragement Week of May 10, 2010


“When we take time to quiet ourselves, we can all sense that our lives could be lived with greater compassion and greater wakefulness.  To meditate is to support this inner potential and allow it to come forth into our lives.”  Jack Kornfield, Meditation for Beginners

During almost every support group session, we address the emotions around seeing someone that is pregnant.  Our patients will often experience anger, resentment, sadness, and frustration.  However, if we take a lesson from Kornfield, and you were to immediately divert your mind to a meditative state instead of anger, you may find that these experiences flow much more smoothly.
Although you are enduring a challenging moment, your natural state is not one of anger.  It is calm, patient, compassionate, and loving.  When you feel these new and challenging emotions arise, try to remind yourself that anger is not your default.  You are patient, you are compassionate, and you are loving!
Also, you can find more helpful tips and techniques from Jack Kornfield’s book/audio CD Meditation for Beginners.  You can purchase it in our CNY Healing Arts locations and from our webstore: http://cnyfertility.com/store/
Happy Meditating!
