Themes & Experiences
Coming into physical existence inherently includes some level of resistance, in the joining of sperm and egg, spiraling in of spirit to zygote to womb. Implantation is a place of contact, and an a negotiation between the gestational parent and the embryo, a choice to come into relationship, a choice to come into relationship, to make space, to create. The process of embryological and fetal development in the prenatal/inutero experience is quite intricate. If there are/were things going on in the field then there are more laters of resistance. The more consciousness, the less tension and resistance to incarnate, grow your body, preparation for action.
