Call Me Summer Moon

I think I am coming down with New Age Syndrome. I have been meditating pretty regularly now.

I have been sending bad thoughts about my ovaries down golden cords into the earth while sucking in good thoughts from the divine.

I have been breathing pink sparkly light into my heart space and using it to scrub away the dark patches of emotions about my fertility.

At a somewhat heated business meeting yesterday I told someone that they needed to take some deep meditative breaths. (Yes, yes, I really did this. The words just came out.)

And something strange is happening to me.

I feel better.

I feel more calm.

I feel more (dare I say it) centered.

So I'm cranking things up a notch and I purchased a new meditation CD specifically geared toward IVF.


Here are the tracks:


Track 1: Hitting Your Mark! From shots to retrieval
Track 2: Rest and Rejuvenate - between retrieval and transfer
Track 3: Baby's Sweet Spot! From Transfer to Implantation (week 1 of 2 week wait)
Track 4: The Waiting Game! From Implantation to Pregnancy Test (week 2 of 2 week wait)


I just can't wait to get started. I refuse to listen to any track until I am actually at that part of my cycle. I mean...this stuff is so powerful that they caution you on the CD jacket not to listen to the CD while you are driving!


I hope that the changes I recognize in my emotional well being are being mirrored in my body, specifically my ovaries. But if not, I'll be satisfied if meditation can just keep me sane this cycle.

Isn't it crazy how much some deep breaths and positive thoughts can help your peace of mind?
I really need to get back into meditating.

Oh....where did you get that CD...I really need to relax about my upcoming IVF too...sounds lovely.

I really hope the meditation helps those ovaries kick into overdrive, and get you some beautiful embabies!

Good for you! I have never been very good at meditating.

If it works for you maybe it will help the lady in the meeting too!

Keep up the positive energy!

I'm glad that you've found something that helps improve your mood and hopefulness. I should probably try and do the same thing.

Logical Libby said...

What about track 5: dealing with the bills?

Just kidding. I am glad this is helping you.

I'm doing the acupuncture and yoga but haven't managed meditation. Don't you juts get the urge to giggle, or is that just me? Oh, right then, just me.

Melissa G said...

You totally read my mind.

I started acupuncture again, and have been able to really dig deep and space out(mediate)during the 45 minutes of my sessions. It's like CRACK. I feel so freakin good when I leave there, and I haven't been sweating the little things as much.

I love your new outlook. I hope that you get everything back and more, that you are throwing out into the universe.

Peace my friend. (okay that's a bit much)

I love meditation stuff. Being a perfectionist doesn't seem to mix well with the relaxed stage you need to be in during all this IF stuff! Hello control issues. So I can use any and all help I can get to "deal" with it all. I can't wait to hear how it works for you.

Sounds really interesting. I'd love to know what you think of the CDs when you get them - I might have to order those, too.

WannabeMommy said...

"pink light" ... "golden cord"... I totally have that same CD. Please let us know how the other one you ordered is; I'm hungry for some new softly spoken, flowery words to meditate to.

Mad Hatter said...

You totally inspire me! This is something I have not yet added to my routine and I know I desperately need to. Keep up the great work!

Parenthood For Me said...

It's so great that this outlet has really improved your life. As I mentioned before you are inspiring me to do this too.

Sarah said...

Good for you! Thats awesome.

Alison said...

Thank you so much for the link! I ordered one for my next cycle starting on Sept 8th (IVF #4). I'll try it out too! I wish both of us TONS of luck!
