Your loved ones can’t help but share their hypnobirthing stories with you. The moment you say “I’m pregnant,” you start to hear these stories with all their gory details. Some are positive and uplifting, but many describe physical and mental pains and hardships which are embedded in the minds of women you love dearly. The same women will tell you about the joys of holding their babies in their arms for the first time and how their babies have changed over the years, but first they must warn you about the trials and tribulations of childbirth.
Have you ever stopped to think about how these stories affect your own perception of childbirth? How much do you think images and storylines seen on television affect your perceptions? Much of what you think, feel and believe about pregnancy and the birthing experience probably goes back to things you have heard. This is especially true if this is your first pregnancy and you have no prior experiences on which to form your expectations.
When you apply the law of attraction to birthing, you realize that the stories of others and images seen on television can have a big impact on your own birthing experience. This law states that what your mind dwells on will develop in your life. Where your mind lingers, your life goes. The more you think about something, the more likely it is to become your reality. There are a million ways to say it, but you get the point.
The Positive Birthing Mindset
Your birthing experience doesn’t start with contractions. What you will enjoy or endure during the childbirth process will depend largely on your thought processes and beliefs. According to the law of attraction, you can attract a positive experience free of pain and fear or you can attract a more negative experience that may require intervention. It’s a matter of focusing your mind on positive thoughts so that positive things are more likely to happen on your birthing day.
Hypnobirthing Hub will show you how to focus your mind on the positive things that you want to experience, shutting out thoughts of negative things that you worry may occur. This includes shutting out the negative stories of others which make you worry about things that could go wrong with your own childbirth experience.
You don’t have to rudely tell others to stop talking to you about their own experiences, but you can learn to focus your mind so closely on the positives that those negative tales slip right out of your mind without following you around as clouds of fear.
When you spend time thinking about the negative things that can go wrong during childbirth, you focus your mind on fear and negativity. This creates a hypnotic state where those fears and worries cross into your inner mind. This is below the surface of your everyday thoughts, and those negatives can influence your anxieties and fears about childbirth even without your conscious recognition of it happening. You’re essentially welcoming the things you don’t want to happen rather than pushing them away.
You can counteract this by catching yourself whenever you focus on the negative things that may happen during childbirth. Switch your mind to positive things that you want to happen and simply refuse to worry about the potential flaws of the experience. Hypnobirthing can help you do this by turning your self talk to positive affirmations and filling your mind with the joys of childbirth.
Tip the Scales in Your Favor
To encourage more of a positive birthing experience, you need to apply the law of attraction to birthing. As a general rule, what you think about 51% of the time is what you will most likely experience in your daily life. Negative thoughts are going to cross your mind, and you’re going to worry at times. There’s nothing you can do about that but learn to turn the tide to a positive thought whenever you realize the negative focus.
Your online hypnobirthing course will give you powerful tools to focus your mind on the experience you want to have rather than the experience you fear you’ll have. A positive birthing mind cannot promise that nothing bad will happen when you give birth. What it can do is put the odds in your favor. Plus, why worry about things that may never happen? That’s exactly what you do when you allow someone else’s negative tale to put fear in your mind.
