The Way We Are Born
is the current working title for my new book, to be published with Balboa/Hay House by the end of this year, about women’s health, plant-based diet and hormonal balance, natural pregnancy, and childbirth. This book is the updated and revised version of a book I published in Germany in 2006 with the title “Das Leben Kennt Den Weg” (Life Knows Its Way). As women, we are life bearers. We can fulfill this sacred assignment only when we wholeheartedly say “yes” to life. Saying yes to life starts with being healthy and dignified. In today’s society, many of us struggle with affirming life, first of all, their own. Women struggle with claiming their own power, taking good care of their own health, and living happily and wholeheartedly. But how can we bring healthy, happy children into this world when we can’t give them the best start, nourish them with the best food, unconditional love, in pure spirit, and teach them the skill of living wholeheartedly?
We are equipped with everything we need to conceive and grow and give life. Our female bodies are encrypted with
- a divinely determined timeline on how things build upon each other;
- a fine intuition which helps us to make wise choices for our families;
- the powerful position as being the Mama – the one who feeds and nourishes her loved ones.
Modern society has made so many of us believe that we only live with purpose when we have successful careers, that we can go on and exploit our bodies because for any medical problem there is a pharmaceutical fix, and most of all, we don’t need to waste our precious lifetime with interrupting our career for our children but they can be sent off to daycare as early as being six weeks old. What if I was to tell you that all that are lies? It doesn’t have to be one or the other – the old-fashioned role-model of a woman as homemaker or the modern, high-performance professional. Today more than ever mastering our lives as women requires to be educated, organized, and skilled for modern tasks, while staying connected to and conscious about our inner, ancient wisdom, which teaches us that every true, loving sacrifice returns as multifold blessings. It is all about strengthening the connection between our hearts and our mind. It’s our minds that get overwhelmed by striving to juggle multiple tasks and roles each day. Mental stress causes our bodies to tense up. Physical tension relates to emotional tension, closing our hearts. Closed hearts can’t connect to the unconditional divine love that’s the source of our being. Closed hearts relate to anxiety and depression. In order to heal and step into our full power we need to open our hearts,
