On Friday 16 December 2022 my daughter Evelyn Rose will turn one. It marks one year of her life on earth and it marks one year of me being a mum. A milestone for us both.
As this milestone approaches, I've been reflecting on the last 12 months and some of the magical moments that I've experienced with my gorgeous bub. It feels only fitting to share some of these every day magical moments with you to celebrate 12 months of Evelyn and 12 months of being her mamma.
In the lead-up to Evelyn’s birth, I was trying ALL THE THINGS to bring on labour. And I mean ALL the things. Nothing was working. I was very late in my pregnancy and at this point very over due. Nevertheless, this bub was staying put.
At other times in my life, when I was approaching a life transition or going through something challenging I would turn to reiki to support me. It helps me to slow down. My nervous system relaxes and I feel held and supported. When I feel this way I can drop deep into meditation and listen intuitively. This was one of those times. I was soo tired and it had been a long and painful pregnancy. I was slowly realising that ALL the doing and trying no longer felt supportive. I needed to STOP. I needed to slow down and to tune in and listen.
I received the most gorgeous reiki session. It was in this reiki session that I had a vision.
I had a vision of a mother bird leaving earth and flying up into the sky. The mother bird continued to fly up, up and up. She flew as high as the space between earth and the spirit realm.
It was here that the mother bird was met with a little bird.
The mother bird intuitively knew she was there to guide the little bird on her journey.
