Fertile Ground: A mind-body approach to getting pregnant - without it taking over your life.

May 25, 2021

“I’m trying to stay positive. But it’s so hard.” I hear this all the time. From women TTC who believe that positivity is their way to happiness and pregnancy. Conceptually this makes sense. And as a Sagittarius, I am naturally a very optimistic person and I love this about myself. So, I totally get this desire to be more positive and to FEEL more positive. BUT… there comes a point when the monkey mind annoying persists with you that anything other than positive is wrong, bad and messing up your fertility. This is a lot of pressure and I felt this way for years. It only led to a ton of self-blame when any other emotion -- besides happiness and excitement -- entered my human experience… which was A LOT of the time. You know what I would do in response to any anger, sadness or grief that I felt? I wouldn’t feel it. I’d suppress it. I’d shove it deep down and fake/pretend that “everything was fine!” This is what I would call… Toxic positivity. So on today’s brand new podcast, we’re gonna chat about: What is toxic positivity? Why “negative thoughts” aren’t bad. Why I suggest choosing validation over positivity. Listen now!
