To work with fear is a way to be active and alert in a situation where most are frozen and inactive .
Women’s healthcare providers – ‘Midwives’ have always been here
It is an honourable position , respected and powerful.
However our fear is grounded in a history of persecution since ‘ The Burning Times’
To repress and attack midwives is to deny the power of women
In any patriarchal society, midwives will always be seen as troublemakers because they care for the health and rights of women
“At this time, no one is more dangerous to the state and church than the midwives.” The Spanish inquisition for the Catholic church – six million women died!
These ‘Burning times’ created a pain body for all the women who came after – the line of the story was broken- now we are beginning to re-weave the storylines
FEEL YOUR FEAR – It keeps you alert and assists you to be aware and watch your back, it helps to keep you safe!
TO MEET FEAR OPENLY INSTEAD OF CLENCHING AND FREEZING MEANS WE CAN OPENLY RECOGNIZE IT AND OPEN OURSELVES TO THE POSSIBILITIES OF OVERCOMING IT!
To cleanse yourself of the fear that is felt is a very important tool, then you do not bring every fearful event to each moment of fear.
To cleanse and heal gives us the opportunity to work with our fears and grow past them.
Fear, anger, jealousy – are all from the primal part of the brain
DANGER! – creates adrenaline – enables us to respond – as conscious beings, we can choose how we respond.
ADRENALINE – frozen, closedness, hate, fear, or
OXYTOCIN – Love, Compassion, caring, openness
A woman giving birth runs a 100 times more Oxytocin than at any other time
When we run oxytocin at a birth we entrain to the birthing woman and we learn how to be in LOVE – our brain waves drop through ALPHA- BETA – THETA – Theta waves – being the place where time becomes elastic and brainwaves open so that experiences can be rewritten
