You’ve always had the power, you just had to learn it for yourself.

Saw this image over on Pinterest today, and it made me reflect on the last year of my life.

Up until a few months ago, I was searching for answers and guidance from any and everyone I met. I was desperate to know when I was going to get pregnant, and how it was going to happen. I felt like everyone else was in on the big secret, getting pregnant just by thinking about it, while I was still running around like a madwoman and struggling.

A few months ago, it occurred to me that I was seeking answers from anyone who would give them, when the reality was, I needed to seek them within.

I wasn’t going to find answers out there. I was going to find them in here. I was just going to have to start listening again. I needed to get back in tune with my body and my emotions. I needed to take better care of myself. And most of all, I needed to mend my relationship with my body.

Same thing went for pretty much every other area of my life that had been neglected due to my must-get-pregnant tunnel vision.

And then it happened. The epiphany.

The more I sought answers elsewhere, the more I lost touch with my own intuition and power.

Once that light bulb went off and I was able to tune back in to my needs, things began to settle down. I became less anxious. I felt happier and more balanced. And I began to feel like I was back in the flow.

I always had the power. I just had to learn it for myself. And tune in.

Where in your life are you seeking for answers externally?

What would happen if you just tuned in, and listened to what your heart // gut // mind // intuition is telling you?

  1. Reply Fabulous. Thank you for sharing. I'm sorry getting pregnant has been a source of stress for you. You're very right...we can't always look to others for answers. Reminds me of Jess Lively's HuffPo post: Despite your hardships with getting pregnant, it seems to me that you're doing what you can to make your situation as positive and "successful" as possible. That is admirable.
    1. Reply Thank you Akirah!
  2. Reply I was directed to this post by Akirah, and I think she was right when she said we might be able to connect. I'm currently seeking those same pregnancy answers, and like you were, I'm asking everyone but myself. Thanks for reminding me where to look!
    1. Reply ♥ If you ever want to talk, I'd love to connect. Not to pretend to have the answers, but to listen and offer support. It can be a fairly lonely journey...
      1. Reply I think we should definitely chat. It certainly helps to know someone else is going through the same thing.
  3. Reply I would say try Reflexology treatments. I am a reflexologist and I have helped many women become pregnant. After even one treatment. Reflexology is foot massage. I love what you said about looking in to find answers, when I start to go to readers to find answers I need to look within and need to remeber no one knows better than I what i need. Thankyou!
