We are all victims of violence in one way or another in all kinds of forms. As we become adults the acts of violence, we experienced in childhood we repeat against others.
We experience the first acts of violence in a certain way already at conception, inheriting the genetic traumas of our ancestors. Another thing we experience in the prenatal phase of the baby in the womb, when the stress hormones, i.e. cortisol from the mother’s body, is transmitted to the fetus through the placenta and umbilical cord. It affects the fetus from the very first days of conception, causing the first emotional blockages in the child’s body. The next are early childhood experiences. They all have a huge impact on our health and life satisfaction.
In this article you will learn:
- Why you were born a certain way.
- How the way you were born is responsible for your beliefs.
The desire to prevent maternally and child mortality during childbirth has turned this natural, primary, intimate, and family experience in women’s lives into a medical procedure performed primarily in hospitals. It was supposed to increase the sense of security of the mother in labor and improve the working conditions of medical personnel.
Meanwhile, apart from its undoubted advantages, it primarily resulted in the medicalization and dehumanization of this experience. The act of birth, as well as the act of death, has been made into an impersonal medical procedure from the mystery of transition between the worlds of the living and the dead. As a result, they deprived both of the experiences of spirituality, of respect for the forces of nature, which should only be supported by gentle actions. We lost our values by focusing on achieving the goal.
And yet, birth is, above all, the transition of a new soul to the plane of existence.
It is therefore a primarily spiritual and not medical experience. Obviously, such conduct has its consequences. They are the beliefs we have acquired in connection with our birth.
These beliefs are related to the mother’s stress during labor, the atmosphere of labor, noise, the amount of light, the number of people in the delivery room, and their emotions, screaming, pain, and fear. They shape your first birth experience. They are responsible for your first beliefs, recorded in your consciousness, which later in your life shape your reactions to the world. They are responsible for your vision of the world in which you live. Do you consider it a pleasant, supportive, and favorable place or, on the contrary, a Mordor in which nothing pleasant awaits you, except hard work, until you lose your strength to the very grave. They also affect the way you learn and build relationships.
Alienation and medicalization of childbirth make you lose faith in your own strength. So it is very important how the birth of a child is treated. The key is treating this moment as a natural and spiritual part of life and drawing on your own innate wisdom and trusting your body and your intuition.
All the circumstances of this experience are encoded in our cells on an unconscious level in the form of memories. The circumstances of the birth, as well as the date, the position of the child, the speed and type of delivery as well as complications or lack thereof, are important.
Each of us chooses this and no other way to be born for some purpose.
Big children, to see and be connected to the big picture of the world. Born in a bonnet to keep the connection between the two worlds. Breech delivery to be different and have your own unique path. And those who were born through a sudden cesarean section, to know that there is a creative shortcut. Those who chose the planned cesarean section so that it would be easy to expect the best in everything and treat others with understanding and love.
Born dependent on the mother’s condition to be a joy, not a complication. Wrapped in an umbilical cord to trust that heart and mind are connected. Born under anesthesia to be aware that you can trust the connection with your Higher Self. Easy birth was for those who wanted to change their attitude to the past and challenge the saying you have to fight to survive. The quick birth was for those who were supposed to get the job done quickly.
Born in forceps delivery met those who wanted to cope with everything that life requires of them.
Postponed labor was for those who needed determination and determination in their actions. Induced labor was to teach you to be your own master. Delayed delivery was for those who had to learn the patience needed to complete a task before completing it. Birth with a near-death experience for those who want to learn unconditional love.
Normal birth happened to those who were to prove that no complications are needed in the world. Premature birth teaches that sensitivity is safe. Reverse birth teaches flexibility in life. Twin birth to stop fearing losing love. Being an unwanted child teaches you to like being wanted and accepted. And being the child of the wrong sex teaches you to get rid of your fear of being the wrong person.
See how the circumstances of your birth shape your beliefs and what affirmations you use to change them.
