As your belly grows, you become more aware of miracle of pregnancy. Your interests may adjust. Besides arranging the physical environment for your child, include activities which stabilize your inner peace and radiance. Organize time for yoga, meditations, reading inspiring books. Choose your friends wisely. Develop friendships with other spiritually minded pregnant women, perhaps women in your pregnancy yoga class. Spend time with people who can uplift and inspire you.
"The purest thing in the world is the heart of the mother, the heart-chakra, the center of the mother. It is the purest thing in the world. It can move God. It can move the universe. It can cause an effect beyond limitation. The heart of the mother is the greatest power of Infinity ever given to any finite being. There are certain things which can be considered the most superior things: prayer of the mother, prayer of the beloved (I wish it should say wife, but it is not written in the scriptures, so I cannot alter them), prayer of the self, and prayer of the spiritual teacher. These are four prayers which can alter and change the destiny."
Yogi Bhajan, Women’s Camp 1977
Your child first learns from your state of consciousness while in the womb. Everything you consciously experience, your state of mind, your relationship to the world and your rapport to your child, are all transmitted to your child and become the foundation of your child’s subconscious, which is the root of his/her personality.
You remain the primary teacher for your child after birth until the third year. You however are connected with your child throughout life.
You are challenged as your child’s teacher. It is an incredible responsibility to care, inspire, and teach a child 24/7. Remember to also nurture your own self: meditate, practice yoga, exercise, nap, visit with friends, and eat well. The creativity and strength to serve this responsibility can be awakened when you tune into being a woman.
