THEY CALL IT A MIRACLE
Nineteen years ago today, October 26th 1991, the day of The Perfect Storm, I was screaming and writhing in pain at Salem Hospital in Salem, Massachusetts. Salem is the witch city and I was giving birth to a little witch. Although I didn’t know at the time that she would be such a witch. Well she isn’t that bad. No, I’m just being politically correct she a witch. What do you expect from a gorgeous, talented, knockout 19-year-old who was born on the same day as The Perfect Storm.
So I don’t lose the guys here I put in a picture of Jackie AND this is not about childbirth. If you have kids or any of your friends or relatives have kids you have heard all the horror stories. 597 hours of labor, all the screaming and name calling. Really it’s not that bad, that’s what I tell all pregnant woman, don’t worry….ya it hurts, it hurts alot, but you’ll be fine.
Just got off the phone with the little witch, Jackie, to have our happy birthday phone call, she moved in with her father when she was 13 (witch) so we usually have the birthday phone call, and it got me to thinking.
As I sit here today 19 years after having give birth to my last child I do recall the pain of birth, and it was painful but it was so great when it was over and I was on the other side. Can one explain the amazing experience of having children? No. It’s to big but it’s totally worth a few hours of pain.
BIRTH IS PAINFUL? Sometimes.
The Master Key Master Mind Alliance reminds me of the process of having a child and that’s what came to me after my conversation. No one can explain the amazing experience of the MKMMA. You just can’t explain it. You gotta do it yourself to know.
We start this process and it really exciting and fun, like making a baby. A little while in we start to get really sick and scared, 1st trimester. Then it seems kind of OK. I’m getting it or at least I think I am. Then we’re really fat, ugly and freaking out. Metaphorically of course I don’t want to offend, just how I was felling at the time. So now that we have been living with this weight, this anticipation of something awesome happening here comes the pain. Maybe, maybe not. It’s different for everyone for me it feels sometimes like I’m the baby sometimes the mom. Maybe you got to squeeze thur some little hold half the size of your head. Maybe you’re already half way thur and it’s just a little push. Sometimes it hurts so bad you gotta have the spinal thing. Sometimes the pain is not so bad and you can take it. For me it’s been painful and wonderous just like my Jackie.
You become someone different when you’re on the other side. It’s work, you have doubts, you think you’re doing it wrong. Holy Guacamole how the heck am I going to do this every single day for 26 weeks!!!! That was what I thought many times during the course the 1st time thru. For myself and for the students. Then it just becomes part of you. You miss it when it’s not there. You become protective and don’t let anybody mess with your sacred time. You nurture, help it grow.
It’s so great to be on the other side, will there be more pain, maybe, maybe. But Man-O-Man all the joy, peace, gratitude, power. It’s fantastic. It’s totally worth the 168 hours of labor. That’s only 1 week can you believe it? I would have gladly given up one week of my life for my Jackster. One week to change everything. Totally worth it.
blessings and believe,
