This morning on The Path I am feeling quite squeezed, and for the past day or two have felt a subtle, underlying queasiness. Tomorrow happens to be not only the anniversary of my own birth but the day I went into labour with my daughter. Since the cells of the body 'remember' every experience, including everything we do not consciously recall (the most poignant often being the (typically traumatic) birth process) I tend to find myself in somewhat of a double-whammy birth experience around this time. And just like the innuendo's that seep into my language in the presence of sexual energy (see 27/9/13 blog), when it comes to birth energy I notice feelings and language around life, death, and survival. For example, I notice the urge to write about this today in case I don't make it tomorrow...as I may be too busy celebrating, of course :-))
So giving space to, and honouring, my birth process I am taking the pressure off. I am not even lifting the camera to take any pictures as I already have the perfect one, taken at the weekend. I've been dying for an excuse to use it! :-))
