Becomeing aware of what sensory brings you relaxation

This might be a little tricky for someone like me to explain in a blog, but here it goes…

Keeping in mind that while you are pregnant smells can trigger pleasant or unpleasant sensations so if this is not for you at this time try another technique.

Prop up on pillows with slight slant (reclined) so that your lungs and chest are as open as possible.

I recommend starting with the essential oil of lavender. Place a drop on a cotton ball or similar product, and just bring it to your nose, take long deep relaxing breaths.

Visualize your favorite place, see yourself there, go through each of the 5 senses and explore. When you let others thoughts take over you journey, breath in the lavender and take your thoughts back to your favorite place and start the journey again.

If you continue to practice this technique eventually the smell of lavender will automatically bring a sense of calm to you.  If you do this through out the pregnancy, when you  go into labor you have a tool to use to bring a sense of calm.

Any perception can connect us to reality, properly and fully. What we see doesn't have to be pretty, particularly; we can appreciate anything that exists. There is some principle of magic in everything, some living quality. Something living, something real, is taking place in everything. --Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
