Pregnancy Meditation Techniques
· Deep belly meditation
To perform this meditation practice, you need to place your hands on your belly. Then, you need to observe the sensations under your hands. See how do you feel? Try to breathe slowly in and out. If you have any thoughts, then let them float away.
Try to do this practice for five minutes each day, then you should gradually try to add more time each week.
- The mantra of your life!
Be aware that your words have much power in them. When you utter something, you trust in it. It tends to have a significant impact on the consciousness and nervous system. Practice some positive and strong affirmations to help you through these difficult times.
Meditation Techniques for Labor
- Visualization of a “wave.”
Visualizing yourself as a wave can actually lower down the intensity of pain. Visualization is meditation which is combined with mental imagery, which is a useful tool to have when in labor.
You should try to see each contraction you experience as a wave in the ocean. See it going on the peak and low points.
- “Blossoming Lotus” technique
The Lotus flower symbolizes piousness and spirituality. You should visualize your cervix as a blossoming lotus flower. And chant “open, open, open.”
- Focus on “Third eye.”
