On Saturday, I listened to a nice fear release meditation on Youtube, on Sunday I listened to one from a CD I bought last go round, and yesterday I listened to the relaxation track from the same CD. Today, I went back to the fear release one, as I think that's where I need most help.
For today, I decided to draw a card from a deck I just received (a late Christmas present to myself): Jody Bergsma's Magical Times Empowerment Cards (U.S. Games, 2013). Looking at the title, the card didn't make much sense. However, both the image and the caption really spoke to me. The caption says: Focus on the positive and more good will come. Give thanks for blessings and they will multiply. Prosperity begins in the mind.
Both the bit about focusing on the positive and prosperity beginning in the mind certainly echo the ideas of hypnobirthing: of hypnotically anchoring positive, happy, relaxed states of mind so that you can attain them more easily during trying situations.
As for the image, I remember Rachel Pollack writing about frogs being related to fertility because of the hundreds of eggs that they lay, so that works, too :D
