There is a great volume of scientific research now available about the power of the mind over the body. Our beliefs about conception, pregnancy and birth can block our ability to conceive because of both conscious and unconscious fears.
The statistics show a 25% infertility rate in the western world. This rate a lot higher than anywhere else in the world. Even, more studies show that one in three couples in the Western world will be infertile within 10 years. And yet one in three couples in other parts of the world don’t share this statistic. The medical world is beginning to recognise that infertility is a secondary effect of a no longer useful thinking pattern. Spending too long trying to avoid pregnancy can become the greatest mental handicap to becoming pregnant.
Unexplained infertility means that there are no medical reasons underlying this symptom. You have perfectly good eggs, clear tubes, a healthy womb and the right hormones. Yet you are not conceiving. Furthermore, you don’t get pregnant when you relax. You actually get pregnant when you are expecting a baby, not wishing or hoping. Having a sense of expectancy, an unwavering belief, a deeply ingrained knowledge that your baby on its way. This sense of certainty commands directly to your mind to become pregnant immediately.
Infertile couple often conceive during adoption
Couples diagnosed with infertility often conceive during the process of adoption. They often conceive naturally after a successful IVF baby. Fully accepting themselves as parents determines the mind to detach from the fear of conceiving. They know it’s on its way, rather than the baby they wish would be on its way or hope for. In fact, couples undergoing adoption are asked to use birth control, even if they have been diagnosed with infertility. The reason is because the statistics of adoptive parents becoming pregnant, even before the adoption has completed, are quite high.
When the mind changes the body follows
Our bodies literally respond to our thoughts and to our beliefs, so if you think ‘I’m too old to get pregnant’ or ‘I’m too stressed to get pregnant’ or even if you worry that you can’t afford another baby, your mind and body will accept this literally. When you change the way you think you also change the chemistry in your body. And that’s simply because the pregnancy hormones are released are influenced directly by the way we think and the way we feel, so stress, anger, worry or other negative emotions can disrupt them. Worrying about IVF and focusing on the low statistics is very detrimental. 45% of the women I work with have success at the first IVF procedure because my unique technique of hypnotherapy, NLP and mindfulness can drastically improve your body’s ability to respond to IVF.
The strongest force in every human being is that the body has to match what is going on in the mind, it literally has to act in a way that is consistent with our thinking – it has no choice. Every thought you think has a physical reaction in the body. Thoughts are things and they have consequences; good thoughts have good consequences in the body, and negative thoughts eventually have negative consequences.
Another very strong force in the human psyche is that nothing in our lives will influence us more than the things we link to pain and pleasure. When we experience pain, the brain searches very hard for the cause of it, then it stores that information and does everything to ensure we don’t go through that experience again.
old outdated beliefs can seriously hinder your chances of becoming pregnant
Many women experience secondary infertility if their first birth experience was bad. They may have thought ‘I can never go through this again or said ‘this is unbearable, unendurable’ or words to that effect. They may have told their friends afterwards that giving birth was a nightmare or they may describe postnatal depression. These powerful and descriptive words make the mind link only pain to having a baby and may still be influencing you many years later, even though you actually want another baby, by making sure you don’t have one.
The good news is that you can very quickly get your mind linked absolute pleasure to being pregnant and to having a baby, rather than pain to the thought of giving birth or losing your figure or being exhausted and weepy after having a baby. The mind holds on to outdated information if it has been repeated often enough. Every time you used birth control you sent a powerful message to your mind: I don’t want to be pregnant, I don’t want a baby. Every time you took your pill, inserted the cap or used a condom your brain got the message loud and clear.
You linked absolute pain to having a baby when you use words like ‘this is hell’ if you got up for the night feeds or had a screaming newborn. How many times do you think you have said to your partner ‘Use a condom I don’t want to get pregnant’ or ‘be careful- I don’t want a baby’. Your mind will have taken that literally, not just at that moment but always.
These words are subconsciously letting your body know you don’t want a baby and your body is responding by not creating one. But your body does not know when you have changed your mind and the old words are no longer applicable. This thought process is not automatically reversed.
hypnotherapy increases your chance to become pregnant
However, hypnosis and NLP therapy can do an amazing job at reversing it. The British Medical Journal published a study where 554 women who diagnosed with unexplained infertility have been treated with hypnotherapy. 71.67% became pregnant. 349 came after failing elsewhere and they had exactly the same success rate.
Harvard Medical School recently published the results of a new study. A group of women were taught to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. 55% of that group went on to have a baby compared to only 20% of the control group. And that’s just positive thinking, nothing else.
Your unconscious mind is responsible for the functioning of all your organs. If your subconscious believes that your reproductive system is functioning successfully then it will be a peak performer. However, if it has accepted a suggestion that it is not in your interests to have a baby, then notwithstanding the fact that you are ovulating, your tubes are clear and your reproductive system is functioning normally – you might not have a baby.
visualisation can have a dramatic impact on our bodies
Your thoughts are enormously powerful and enormously effective. Every thought or feeling has a direct projection on your body. Your ovarian age can be younger than your actual age and my programme taps into this. You only need one sperm to conceive your baby and one perfect egg.
You have the power to influence that one perfect sperm to swim to and fertilise your egg. Your egg gives off a powerful chemical to draw the correct sperm to it. You can imagine this chemical as super-powerful and the sperm like a scud missile directed by the chemical to break the outer barrier of the egg.
Scientists in both America and Europe have proved that visualisation techniques dramatically impact on our bodies. When you see yourself as pregnant, you send a clear message to your brain that affects your energy levels, your hormones and your motivation. These changes cause physical sensations, which in turn affect your thoughts and feelings and reinforce the mental programming.
Thinking positively about conception and pregnancy can activate particular neurones in the brain. Those, in turn, secrete hormones such as endogenous opiates, which make us feel good about ourselves.
the words we say and the pictures we paint to ourselves have the final say
Negative thoughts have the opposite effect. They produce negative hormones such as cortisol, a stress hormone which leads to feelings of anxiety – one of the nature’s forms of birth control.
At the same time as forming different pictures in your mind, you must tell yourself different things. Eliminate every possible negative word. Focus only on what you wish to achieve and move towards it – a beautiful healthy baby.
We can train your mind to stay on what you want, and off what you don’t want. Whatever you focus on you will move towards. Focusing on not conceiving or not miscarrying simply puts negative words and images back into your mind.
Even the words trying for a baby implies failure. You don’t need to try. You can book your therapy session now to conceive, carry and deliver a perfect baby. All you need is one egg, one sperm, one womb and the conditioning in my programme to have a baby.
