Sacred Pause: Second Trimester

The Bloom of Possibilities


The second trimester is a time to tend the sweet garden of a baby’s growth. As the baby develops it becomes aware of more sensations inside and outside the womb, sharing the gift of music, foods that are eaten and aromas smelled all translate into common experiences for the baby’s world too. The more of these small moments of shared sensation you have, the more you can lean into them as a touchstone later. For this meditation, send a light and playful feeling of joy to each other and baby. 


Second Trimester – Growth Meditation:

Music Pairing Suggestion: The Innocent by Adam Hurst

Crystal: Blue Chalcedony
A radiant stone which helps connect to the angelic realms. Supports mediation and stability.

Sit comfortably. This meditation can be shared by holding hands with whomever is present. Begin by closing your eyes and dropping into your body and being fully present in this moment.

Find the natural rhythm of your breath and playfully follow the flow of inspiration and the flow of exhalation – in and out and around your body. The sweet dance of air moving is a true treasure of life. As you breathe, smile from your heart with each inhalation. With each exhalation, settle more and more into a feeling of contentment and joy. Know that the growth of a baby is a celebration. That life is a celebration and soon a sweet baby will be in the arms of your loving family.

Expand this feeling of delight from your heart and through your whole body. In your mind’s eye, see the sweet baby in their warm and comforting womb space. Tune into the feelings of wonder as the baby explores new sensations – the tickle of bubbles, the comforting the rhythm of a steady heartbeat, the soothing swoosh of fluids ebbing and flowing. For surrogates, take a few moments to share your excitement with baby about this act of generosity and service you are part of. For the parents send baby your feelings of celebration that soon you will be together.

Weave together a shining, inviting bubble of hope and happiness to share with the baby, another delightful new sensation for baby to share in. Close the practice with a smile from your heart. When you are ready settle back into breathing and open your eyes.

 

 

Sacred Pause: Second Trimester


Love Honey:

Love honey is a combination of spices, herbs and flower essences used to bring a little brightness and sunshine into your day. This is made with love and pure intention and can be gifted to surrogate and parents. Whenever this is tasted, choose to connect in with baby and send baby a little extra love.

Ingredients:

1 jar raw local honey from beloved bees
1 vanilla pod, split open to taste the sweetness in life
1 Tbsp dried organic rose petals to surround all with bliss
1 cinnamon stick to bring the spice of the dance
3 pieces of sun-dried mango to invite in ripe prosperity
3 drops of your favourite flower essence
Zest of 1 orange for a light, joyful heart

How to:

1. Add all the ingredients to a pot on the stove.
2. Warm gently, being sure not to boil. You are using the heat to infuse the aromas of the spices.
3. While it’s warming, write your intentions on a piece of paper and read these to your honey.
4. Once cool, pour back into the jar and leave in a sunny window for a week. Place your written intentions under the jar.
5. After a week, light a candle and read the intentions one more time, sending them up to heaven in the smoke.
6. Finish by saying: “As it harms none, my will be done. Bless this Honey with the Light of the Sun”.
7. Strain out the spices and return honey to jar.
8. Take your honey by the teaspoonful as needed.
