Conscious Conception: A Holistic Approach to Pregnancy Preparation

Updated: Jan 3, 2023

Pregnancy is a magical time, but it can also be overwhelming as you prepare for the arrival of your new little one. One way to help make the experience more manageable is to practice conscious conception.

But what exactly is conscious conception?

It is the act of preparing for pregnancy by nourishing both the body and the mind. This involves setting an intention for the pregnancy, cleansing and nourishing the body, and awakening and healing the womb.

Conscious conception begins with you. It is a time to nourish your body, or "temple," in order to welcome your soul home and create a warm and welcoming environment for another soul to join you.

It is also a time to let go of conditioned beliefs and open yourself up to new perspectives. It involves paying attention to the energy within your body and being mindful of the thoughts and actions that it drives.

It is about respecting and loving yourself, and connecting to your deepest truth while also being vulnerable with your partner.

But when should you start preparing for conscious conception?

Yogic philosophy suggests starting as early as 12 months before you hope to conceive. This may seem like a long time, but it allows you to get in tune with your body and make any necessary changes to your habits and patterns. It also gives the sperm and ovum time to be nourished, creating the optimal environment for the new soul to arrive.

The process of conscious conception requires a gentle and passionate commitment to going inward and facing your own triggers and wounds. This allows you to remove any unnecessary obstacles for the children coming through.

In a world that is often obsessed with ranking and manipulation, practicing conscious conception allows you to be part of the movement to transform the fears surrounding greed and power, which feed the collective pain body.

Throughout history, women have recognized the wisdom of conscious conception. In some cultures, women connected to their dreams to receive news that a soul had entered their body.

Today, we can continue this tradition by preparing for pregnancy in a holistic and mindful way.

So, how do you prepare for a healthy and conscious conception? Here are a few tips:

  1. Set an intention. Having a clear and strong intention is key to creating the pregnancy you desire. Write your intention down and keep it close by to help keep you on track.

  2. Cleanse and nourish. Both parents can benefit from cleansing and nourishing their bodies 3-6 months in advance. This will create the ultimate home for the new soul to arrive, and it will also put you in an optimal position to give birth. Keep it simple by moving your body every day, being in nature, eating healthy meals, getting plenty of rest, laughing, creating, and drinking herbal teas.

  3. Womb awakening. The womb has the power to hold a lot of negative emotions and past traumas. By releasing these and connecting to the feminine energy, you can awaken and heal the womb, creating a more positive environment for pregnancy.

  4. Calling in the spirit.

By following these tips and practicing conscious conception, you can create a foundation for a healthy pregnancy and birth. Trust in yourself and your body, and know that you have the power to create the pregnancy and birth experience you desire.

Blessings to you,
