As a species, as those “being” human, male or female, we are integrally designed capable of everything that is of true importance to us. It’s built in, it’s natural, it’s God-sent. On planet Earth in this time and space, humans are almost completely disconnected from this truth.
There are many women who are beginning to question, who are beginning to remember. Many may be reading these words right now. There are many women who are now consciously choosing home births, natural births, midwife assisted births rather than doctor deliveries; births in pools, in tubs, and at home instead of hospitals or birthing centers. While these realities are upgrades, they are only the beginning. After all giving birth is a most powerful experience for a woman, and for parents. It’s also simple, totally natural. It’s a huge deal, an extraordinary process! And yet it happens every day and is completely and totally ordinary. This is the paradox of our entire lives.
Birth is happening every day, not only resulting in human children, but also in energetic consciousness. Every moment something is born – a thought, the genesis of an action, collaboration on ideas, creativity. From the human child to the formation of intention, it’s all birth. My favorite example of a type of birth is the breath. There is no physical aspect of existence that is more important, more nourishing, more sustaining than our breath. We can go for some amount of time without food or without water, but how long without breath? As we breathe in, it’s pure source, we’re breathing in pure, sustaining life force.
This air is relative, changing depending on where you are in the world and within yourself, yet this breath is the simple, natural process of birth. For as we breathe, we give life, and as we breathe out, we are surrendering, letting go, dying. Without that breath, life as we know it ceases. As we breathe in again, life is reborn, life is possible. Breath is an unconscious ability. Without thinking of it, you breathe for days and days, and yet still you breathe, just as the body pumps blood, just as the intestines and the stomach process food, just as the liver processes toxins. The body is working to sustain itself, it’s maintaining life, it’s existing, and it’s all built-in. It’s part of consciousness, it’s part of the perfect design. Whether you are conscious of it or not, it’s taking place. You have to really get in the way, you have to really really get in the way for these things to stop, for these things to malfunction. You have to try to stop breathing and then even so most of the time the desire is going to be manifest, it’s going to be birthed to breathe again.
Now what’s really amazing is that these simple natural processes, built and designed in perfection, begin to manifest in human consciousness and human form. The working of cells, the breath, the heart pumping and the circulation of blood – these separate and unconscious processes combine to form what we call the human body. The body manifests within this simple, normal, natural, built-in design, perfect in aspects, but also at times dysfunctional and malfunctioning. When the blood is not pumping properly, heart attack and stroke results. There are people with high blood pressure or low blood pressure because their blood is not pumping properly. There are a great many physical ills that manifest in the human form.
As far as natural and perfectly designed processes, there is no difference between the pumping of blood and giving birth. Since before recorded human history, since as far back as science can tell, humans have been giving birth to humans. Every mammal on this earth is giving birth to other mammals. What’s happening now is that, just like with the pumping of blood and the breathing of air, the simple, normal, natural parts of life, designed in perfection, are broken, or dysfunctional, or fragmented, because of the interference of the human mind. Because of thought, because of ideas, because of conditioning, because of manipulation, because of the abuse from living in this world. So the whole purpose of me writing this is to connect, to remember, to liberate, to empower, to access the state of divinity, and of natural ordinary thrival.
