This sacred ritual is here to accompany you on your surrogacy journey. During this first ritual, it’s important to set aside 30 minutes, to ensure that you are allowing time for any feelings that may arise.
Sound is extremely useful and important in helping prepare our minds for mindful movements. We have shared our favourite for this exercise.
Today I would encourage you to begin intention setting. Allowing yourself to have hope doesn’t mean you are abandoning pain you can be experiencing; it simply means you are acknowledging the pain, all while finding joy in a ritual that will serve you as you move forward from a place of love.
Here is what you’ll need:
Small jar of honey
4×4 inch paper
Step 1: Grab a piece of paper that is 4″x4″ or so, a pen, and a small piece of scotch tape.
Step 2 : Play the audio provided above this will help bring your focus to this mindful exercise. Now start writing, all of the intentions for your journey.
Some examples may include:
To find a surrogate
To grow a deep, intimate relationship with my partner, as we go through this journey
To have a selection of healthy embryos to choose from
Step 3: Fold paper and tape to the bottom of the honey jar, and place it in the wonder in your home that gets the most light through it. The reason for honey is it serves as a sweet reminder of the loving intentions you are setting. Honey has healing powers. We know that unpasteurized honey has been used as wound care for hundreds of years and often to get to the intentions, to really set them, there is a gentle healing that is needed.
If and when anything comes up, we suggest gently noticing, maybe writing in your journal, so that you can come back to it at a later time.
For now, we’re sending love, joy, and the true healing you deserve.
