FENG SHUI – For Life Transitions With “The Feng Shui Guy”

I first heard of Joe AKA “The Feng Shui Guy” from my friend Rachel back when I was her doula and supported her throughout her pregnancy.

JUST BREATHE

Deep belly breathing has so many healing and health benefits. It’s something I have all my moms to be do in birth. Your power is in the breath … You can’t stop the waves but the way that you breathe through them can help you have a more relaxed and easier ride. The slower and deeper you breathe the calmer you will become. By doing a few rounds of simple breath- work (taking 4 seconds to inhale through the nose and 4 seconds to exhale through you mouth)you will increase serotonin levels, calm your mind and center your thoughts. Breathing deeply floods your body with oxygen which in turn increases blood flow. It helps clear the lungs of toxins, unplugs and calms the nervous system,…

A positive mindset is everything in birth 

A positive mindset in #birth is everything! Your body follows what your mind tells it to do. Your body doesn’t know pain. It’s your mind that says this is painful. Personalized birth affirmations and sayings are some of my favorite tools to use in birth. Everyone has a different something that works for them and often you won’t know what you need until you are in the sacred birth space. Some of the most amazing births I have ever done the women were so in their power by chanting words of encouragement to themselves and their babies out loud. There is that saying, “You can’t stop the waves from coming but you can learn how to surf.” When a contraction starts, if you go into…

Rock those squats in birth 

Squatting during labor helps tilt the uterus and pelvis forward which can help get the baby into proper alignment for birth. It also strengthens the intensity of the contractions while relieving back pressure. Squatting also helps relax and stretch the pelvic floor muscles while giving your baby a straighter route through a wider passage. When you squat the leg bones act like a lever to widen your pelvic outlet by as much as 20- 30 percent. Not to mention you also use the help of gravity. All this helps encourage a more rapid decent and shorter pushing phase. Photo by Kayla Gonzales

Breathe in the light breathe out the dark.

 This morning in yoga throughout the whole class I did a moving meditation linked with my breathing that was beyond transformational. First imagine a bright vibrant sun above your head. On the inhale, breathe in the light and run it throughout your body from your head down to your toes. As you exhale through your nose imagine black smoke or dust leaving your body from the depths of your being. As you do this breathing taking in the light and letting go of the dark you begin to clear and lighten your energy. While holding poses breathe the healing light into the blocked and stagnant areas of your body and as you breathe out You will start to see visions and feel emotions of the…
