The blogosphere is jumping with the Springtime vigor of fertility, sexuality and the urge to renew! After all – it is the season! We have spent the last few weeks literally surrounded by every possible kind of egg and bunny – the trees are full of blossoms, and the tulips are coming up. This beautiful and abundant time of year can actually be really rough if you are going through infertility.
Mother nature is showing off her fertility every where we look – and the customs and holidays of this season dances perfectly with the message that it is time to go forth and multiply!! Like now.
So – it’s not surprising to me that I am reading posts by folks TTC that some of them are feeling “angry for no reason at all”. Or at least a reason that they can’t quite name. If I was to name it – to say why this season is the hardest of all for those TTC – it’s because this is the season of fertility! It can be overwhelming to be surrounded by images of fertility everywhere – and those winter coats are off – and the pregnant parade has begun!
There has been a lot of Spring advice on the blogosphere this week. Dr. Rob, always an advocate of positive thinking is encouraging those TTC to meditate on the words “I AM FERTILE”. For further “Fertile” meditation instructions by Dr. Rob, and accessing the positive – check out his blog “Mind-Body-Smile”.
Now – I bet you are wondering – what Spring time advice does The Fertility Advocate have to offer up? Well dearies – first let me say that there is no way around it – it can really stink to be having difficulty TTC in the season of wild public displays of fertility. It’s like there is a great big party going on – and you have not been invited. So let’s just put that one out there. If you are feeling especially grumpy right now – that might be the reason. So I am sending cyber hugs.
Next – here comes my wise words for what they are worth:
I like Kristen’s advice – so check out that blog entry. It might be a great time to feel your own inner feminine goddess again. I know that she is in there – whether she is having trouble ovulating that perfect egg or not. Your beautiful feminine energy is alive and well – she is just probably feeling neglected. For some more practical advice on finding her again – I encourage you to check out two entries that I wrote in January: “Attention Ladies: The Fertility Advocates Top Ten Recommendations for Making 2010 a Sensual New Year” and “More Recommendations For Making 2010 a Sensual New Year”. Have an open mind – and take a read. Perhaps some of what is out there might actually help a little bit.
How has the holidays been for you? Has Spring brought feelings of renewal and fresh hope – or have you felt out of sync with Mother Nature? What do you think about the advice – that it might be fun and healing to get into touch with you inner Aphrodite? Leave a comment. I would love to know!
