Infertility warrior and fertility counselor Amira Posner discusses how meditation can be a heartscape for deep healing.
By Amira Posner
When I was struggling with infertility, just one glimpse of a pregnant belly threw me into a whirlwind of emotions. Anxiety welled up and I became filled with grief for what was happening to me or in reality, what was not happening to me and what, I feared, could never be. I found myself withdrawing from friends, family and most importantly, from even myself. I was angry at myself and hard on my body. But then I learned loving-kindness meditation, heartscape meditation for deep healing of ourselves.
What is loving-kindness meditation?
One of the best tools in this battle is called loving-kindness meditation (LKM). With over 70,000 thoughts a day, our minds are surely busy. It is important to know that not all these thoughts are true and some are even damaging. Research suggests that a happy mind leads to a more successful chance at having a baby. LKM is a way to create a sense of calmness and find balance within.
