Just as in business when you set a business plan for an overall vision for your company, Your Mama Vision is also about finding clarity about where you’re heading in regards to the greatest job of all – motherhood.
And when you really EMBODY this vision, not just as a concept in your head but as a real tangible BEing-ness, you’ll literally begin wiring your brain to become the mother you really desire to be.
That’s how our brains work. The latest neuroscience supports that if we have clarity about how we want to be and if we immerse ourselves in experiences that create similar inner sensations, feelings and thoughts, either real or imagined, we’ll begin forming those neural pathway in our brain. We begin to change from the inside out.
And when we have clarity about our family desires and the qualities we want to evoke in ourselves and our child, then our brain will be activated to scan the environment to notice opportunities to support this.
This is an incredibly powerful first step to take before we launch into strategy.
Don’t be tempted to skip this step, or dismiss it as not important.
This mama vision exercise introduces the foundational concepts that underpin the whole program. You’ll need it to follow through strongly with the rest of the program content. For example, when we explore creating new boundaries in Module 3, you’re going to need to have a strong vision of what you want and who you are so your boundary setting is not haphazard but instead aligned with what’s real, true and important to you as a mother.
This mama vision plan of being the ‘mother you really want to be’ will be much more fluid than a business plan. This is because you’re accessing your natural neuro-hormonal state that comes with motherhood, and allows you to tune into your child’s spontaneity and your own feminine flow. Don’t worry if you think you might find this difficult. I’ll gently lead you there.
Having your mama vision doesn’t mean you’ll need to be ‘doing’ more things. In fact it can be quite the opposite. It can be choosing to take a slower pace, to cultivate more being-ness to balance the doing-ness. Over time a new paradigm begins to emerge as you and your child’s new desired reality. It will be aligned with the vision of what YOU created.
You’ll begin cultivating the qualities of the mother you desire to be, and choosing to immerse your child in the experiences they need to grow their brain towards these positive outcomes.
When you have a clear VISION of what you really want, what your core embodied desires are, you can bring all your parenting decisions back to this ONE vision.
It’s like the North Star: you know where you’re heading, you keep your eye on the vision, and ALL of your decisions end up being based on what you truly desire.
You don’t have to feel so wobbly second guessing yourself. You don’t have to listen to other people’s opinions and get caught up in the competitive world.
You can relax and check-in with your embodied vision and let your embodiment practices, and the intuition that develops from this, guide you.
We’re going to do an exercise to help you get clear about your vision. This is called the Mama Vision Process.
The Mama Vision Meditation is a powerful process. Listening to and experiencing it daily this week and regularly throughout the program and beyond will begin developing positive neural pathways in your brain to support your vision.
After you’ve set your vision, you’re going to bring awareness to those aspects of yourself that get in the way of achieving this vision. This is also an important part towards creating the process of CHANGE towards being a more intuitive mother. But first…
Complete the Mama Vision Process before coming back to finish this second part of the Module. You need both parts to get the full experience of Module One.
Do this NOW.
