To give birth and be born is about focus and collaboration between two conscious souls. A birth process can be painful for both mother and child if there is no “teamwork”.
The teamwork disappeared when the women started to give birth at birth clinics and were laid down with their legs up.
This is unnatural for both mother and child. Even more unnatural is the monitors and the surveillance during child birth. And the worst part is that the mother no longer is able to listen to her body, instincts and intuition in the birth process.
She is told by the health professionals what to do (sometimes even ordered), and this has alienated her from her own natural instincts.
To give birth is regarded at many modern hospitals as a disease.
Furthermore she is sedated and given painkillers. Both she and the child become “spaced out” in the birth process. She is bereaved something as beautiful as the conception, giving birth in joy, BLISS and orgasm.
A baby can bring with it this feeling of being distant into adulthood and even for the rest of the life. Andiran is still focusing on letting go of the results of sedation from his own birth, in order to incarnate completely into his physical body.
The endorphins, nature`s own sedative which we can bring forth from within, are absent in the modern birth process. And it is this lack of endorphins that can create panic for the child and the mother.
We can learn from Nature, however. Have you observed how wild animals give birth ? (It seems like domestic animals are having more and more complicated births, as if they somehow have taken over the human panic).
They are fully present, as if in meditation – both mother and offspring are in a trance….
What have we done with this sacred initiation ?
Why have we stolen the natural birth process from the women ?
Why have we taken away the possibility for our children to be born without suffering ?
I remember when I was born into this incarnation.
I could feel the warmth from my mother`s hands, stroking her beautiful belly. I could here her whispering to me:
“ We will soon meet – little darling ! “
I was so happy, and I could feel a soft blanket enveloping me. The sound of the blood was loud – and I felt like hovering with joy. The soft blanket tucked me in, tighter and tighter. It was comfortable, because my body was shaped like a wedge with the head in the narrow part. The blood was rustling like a melody around me, quicker and quicker, a song that embraced me more and more. The cells were illuminated, shining like sparkling gold around me.
The blanket squeezed me tighter and tighter for every contraction my mother had. I could feel some pressure on my head, down my face and further down my wedge-shaped body. The soft blanket and the contractions had prepared me gradually, until I was ready to embark through the birth channel.
Now I was in a trance. My mother`s body and my body were like One. She and I danced. She moved her hips around and around in a clockwise direction, I moved slowly in a spiral, letting the Universal gravity lead me like a ballerina…
She felt joy, I felt joy…
The pressure on my head disappeared, suddenly my face was in a brand new world, a world with too much light and noise (We are told that newborns neither see nor hear, but I did from day 1, and so did my 3 children).
I recognized one face – my mother`s. I could only see the upper part of her face, but that was enough, it was her !
I smiled and my mother cried:
“ Look – she is smiling ! Her eyes are open – she is looking at me ! ”
I was even happier and wanted to shout : “ Here I am !!! “
Suddenly the doctor and midwife panicked. They got hold of my neck and pulled me out quickly. I felt an excruciating pain in my neck, I heard a sound like something was cracking.
The pain was unbearable, and in the next moment I was hanging upside down and they were slapping my bottom. So much pain, in the neck, on my bottom, in the hips, in my knees and ancles.
I gasped for air, I did not like to be here!
I had felt bliss inside my mother, and now suddenly I had arrived at this brutal place.
What a drag !
They cut the umbilical cord in panic, and the consequence was that I was forced to breath before my lungs were ready. The umbilical cord is not supposed to be cut until the baby has started to breath in a natural way, which may happen after minutes, but also some times hours later.
The placenta produces the oxygen for the baby, coming through the vibrant and strongly pulsating umbilical cord, THE CORD OF LIFE.
When the baby takes her first breaths the pulsing of the umbilical cord will gradually decrease, and only then should it be cut, if it should be cut.
In Lotus births the umbilical cord is not cut at all – the umbilical cord and the placenta is nourished until it is released by the infant`s body – which may take five days.
Why have we humans created so much panic, fear and control ?
No wonder the world is in such a mess.
Humans have a natural instinct to give birth – to be born – and to LIVE…
The health professionals panicked because I was smiling and I had my eyes open when my head came out. A case that probably had not been written about in any University book ?
The fearful people damaged my neck, tore apart a sinew and stretched another.
I was given the diagnosis Torticollis.
With pain and a handicapped body I was laid to my mother`s breast. The lungs stung in pain, since I was forced to breath before I was ready.
But the LOVE from my mother calmed me down and I was thinking:
“ Dear mum – hold me tight ! Protect me from these strange and scary people, they do not know what they are doing ! “
My grandmother gave birth to 5 sons, two of them she gave birth to alone in the forest during World War 2.
She told me that a birth is a beautiful collaboration between mother and child, and that the pain can be transcended using the right techniques.
She followed her instincts and did what her body told her to do.
Her children were born in peace and joy.
I had the good luck to observe my sister, when she gave birth to her fourth child, and this experience made me think.
She gave birth as easily, quickly and painlessly as our cat. My sister was calm, she breathed and focused…and the baby just slid out…after just a few minutes with contractions.
It was so awesome to witness what I had been longing for deep inside, but which I thought was not possible in our day and age.
Everything happened in peace, joy and harmony. And the little one came out with eyes wide open and a big smile.
Quietly she was resting at my sister`s breast, she was not crying….she just smiled and was pleased.
My sister did not struggle at all during the birth process – she gave birth in an orgasmic bliss….
Some years later I myself experienced orgasmic birth with my third child, it was just awesome !
I had previously had 2 tough birth experiences because I left everything in the hands of the professionals.
This 3 rd time, however, I decided to give birth in joy and orgasm, I decided to be the boss ! And this time everything was fantastic !
A few years before my third birth I watched the movie ” Little Buddha “ – about the life of Buddha. In the movie we could see that the baby was born with a smile on his face, and that his mother was in bliss.
It is possible to give birth like this.
Children can be born without suffering.
Mothers can give birth without pain and without medication.
Women around the world are giving birth in an easy way, we have just not been listening to these women.
What kind of knowledge is hidden for us?
A child can be born without pain.
We can choose it.
It is all up to us – the mothers.
It is about consciousness.
We can CHOOSE to be CONSCIOUS.
