Womb Bloom






For my dearest mother, Jonny, Eve, Mira

***

9 months is a whole epoch where time flows differently; it marks a babys evolution in the womb and a true revolution of body and consciousness. Your old world is far behind you and now you are in the process of getting to know something completely new the very essence of life, its quintessence in fact, and its pulsating force. And what are you to do with all this?

In this book I will share ancient knowledge on pregnancy and childbirth, techniques and exercises which I learned from my teachers, healers, and wise women in Russia, Mexico, Bali and Egypt. This information is intended both for women and men.

This book is a collection of the most interesting and effective techniques tried and tested by me, and of course, my personal discoveries, which I made during this magical period when a woman becomes a Woman

My book is based on the diary I kept during each day of my pregnancies. Its entries are jewels in themselves; no one can feel the world the same way as a pregnant woman, not even a woman in her usual state. Each chapter marks a week of pregnancy, which is why the book can be started from any page. If youre pregnant you can take a look at the week corresponding to your period of pregnancy.

In this work of labour I describe how the body and inner world of a woman change, how energy flows between her and her baby and how the relationship between partners changes.

The book will also be of interest to men since it contains exercises for couples, techniques for conception, and I also talk about what a man is faced with when she carries his baby under her heart.

The book contains:

Exercises for creating harmony in a couple.

Healing techniques for female centres in the body.

Breathing exercises for relaxation, calming the nervous system, balance, healthy sleep and well-being.

Relaxing therapies and massage techniques for pregnant women.

Restorative exercises after childbirth.

You will discover:

How to find out the name and character of your baby before it is born.

How and why the ancients chose a place of power for the birth and a song of power for the baby.

A beautiful, ancient dance that you can practice during pregnancy and after childbirth to stay toned and flexible.

Information about nutrition during pregnancy and herbal tea recipes for after childbirth.

What clothing and what symbols sewn onto it help a woman during pregnancy.

And much more!

About the author




Alexandra Alma author of womens books Womb and Womb Bloom, poetess, musician, founder of Replege health centre, graduate of Bauman Moscow State Technical University also studied at the faculty of anthropology to research Replege movements.

Replege is an ancient system of movements and breathing techniques aimed at increasing vital energy.

The name comes from the Spanish replegar, which means to withdraw or return. Replege, in essence, is a return to nature.

She also leads seminars for women and practices ancient, rejuvenating obsidian stone massage techniques. Together with her partner she organizes cultural expeditions to meet healers and stay in places of power around the Earth including Mexico and Russia.


A little background

Some, so-called chance meetings can alter the flow of our life very strongly and even direct it into another channel. Thanks to my parents, I had already come into contact with and learned different types of ancient knowledge in my childhood. For as long as I can remember, I had always felt a strong urge to find the Source; something which had not yet been written and rewritten, distorted, turned into a business-making machine; something in its virgin form. And I wanted this to be womens knowledge, something just for us women. I managed to harvest it from thousands of meetings, partings, journeys and an unending search Then one day everything changed. I was invited to another country, to a place which few write or know about and it was there that I met something genuine

I met some very interesting people. They can be called different names: healers, wise-women, curanderas, but the point is that they are keepers of knowledge passed down by our ancestors and live in harmony with nature. They began to teach me and pass their knowledge on to me; knowledge which turned out to be very useful during pregnancy, after childbirth and in forming my relationship with my partner and life in general.

It was an amazing encounter with the potency of feminine Power and womens techniques created over thousands of years, which still work effectively to this day.

This is what I want to share with you. With happiness and light!

Dear readers!

The book you are about to become familiar with is a sincere, emotional and positive story about a womans journey to connect to her true nature. It describes the most important moments in the life of every human being; the stages that a close couple will go through, from conception to the mystery of birth. It sheds light on how to make this journey smoother, more harmonic and joyful, how to fill ones life with happiness, how to accept and feel confident with the changes in ones body over the 9 months of pregnancy, how to live in a positive frame of mind and how to prepare oneself for the miracle of childbirth.

It so happens that most of my life has been spent in the vicinity of pregnant woman and those giving birth. Every day I see how important it is for future parents to have the right attitude; an attitude which can overcome any difficulties, even a complicated pregnancy. Only positive emotions, relaxation, mutual respect and edifying thoughts and images form the necessary environment for the birth of a healthy baby. It is not easy to reach such a harmonization of feeling, but it is possible with hard work. The pages of this sincere book, filled with love and gentleness, are dedicated to showing the reader how to reach this state of harmony.

My name is Vera Zhestovskaya. Im a mother to three grown-up sons and a grandmother to the three most delightful nieces in the world!!!

I gave birth to my oldest son Konstantin when I was still studying at university, and I remember how much I needed information about pregnancy and childbirth then!! I tired out our psychology tutor with my questions. I felt really scared of not knowing and what is more, I was far away from my mother at the time. I was with friends and peers who, to give them credit, cared for me as much as they could. I remember that on my first day of our practical lesson, I ran into class on sky-high heels with a massive belly, and my course mates pleaded, Veronika, be careful, dont run like that.

I was in good health and went through pregnancy like a breeze, but when I was giving birth in the labour ward, the nurse who was fed up of the shouts coming from mothers in labour warned me, If you shout like that, your child wont shout at all and so I remained silent As a result, the doctors missed the active labour phase and had to use forceps to help the baby out, which is a huge trauma for both mother and child. When giving birth to my second child I screamed with all my might, which was probably not the best thing either. And when giving birth a third time I didnt shout for another reason I knew it all!!! I chose the maternity ward myself one where the child is put to the mothers breast straight away and stays with the mother from the moment it is born. This seems like the norm now but 25 years ago only one maternity ward provided these conditions. The nurses were drinking their morning tea and didnt feel like stopping their conversation. I told them, Ladies, Im giving birth to my third child, I know what to do, just show me where the labour ward is. And when the waters broke I ran past the nurses holding a sheet under me and shouted, Ladies, follow me! I got onto the chair by myself and breathing calmly and pushing with a feeling of joy and great happiness, without shouting even once, I gave birth to a wonderful hero!

Aleksandra Almas book, Womb Bloom, is indispensable for future mothers. It contains a lot of hints and ancient experience on how to give birth to children with Knowledge, Skill, Happiness and Joy!!!

***

Has it really happened to me? Im pregnant, YES! YES! YES! Its you! Say these words again and again! You are pregnant! Get in touch with yourself, listen to yourself, flow with the Universe.

Many women think back on their pregnancy as the best moment in their life; as a holy, pure time when cosmic knowledge enters a woman directly.


***

Everything had lost its meaning All my previous relationships, romances, men, situations Everything had lost its importance; I just looked on with a smile on my face as the embers of the past finished burning in my hearth of life.

My life had changed. It had changed forever. The course of fate had gone down such a long-awaited, desired and authentic path

Before.

Three years ago I was lucky to meet an interesting character who changed my life, and I his He came to Russia to present his new book. Interestingly enough, our meeting took place in a place of power in Moscow at the Vasiliy Blazhenny catherdral in the very heart of the megapolis.

This meeting was a lucky coincidence and I used this chance to get to know him.

Juan was standing in a queue together with his Russian publisher at the entrance to the cathedral. He was dressed in summer clothes despite it already being the start of November. The sight of him woke my body up straight away and took away the feeling of chronic sleep deficiency.

Usually I slept until midday. But not this time I jumped out of bed at 8am and flew to meet him, pushed on by the winds of change.

Juans cap was almost covering his eyes. When we got closer to each other to say, Hello! he slightly raised the peak of his cap. I took the opportunity to dive under it with my glance.

That second my eyes were pierced by the glitter of black diamond a clear gaze that had the power to turn everything into ashes. It was impossible to hide from him. Juans eyes bored holes through ones body leaving no place for lies or self-deceit. Our friendship had begun.

My former boyfriend and I invited Juan to stay at our place while he was in Moscow. He complied amicably. The time we spent with him was unforgettable; intensive, complete and filled with a child-like happiness!

But the main thing was that during the 2 weeks that he lived with us he magically managed to change my relationship to development as a couple, pregnancy, motherhood and the concept of woman.

One day Juan called me over to his room and asked what turned out to be a tricky question: Do you want a child? His magic eyes blazed up once again with piercing sparks. My eyes became shifty, my mouth turned to stone, my neck and shoulders stiffened up. I felt for the first time that I couldnt give the answer I always gave in such cases.

Juan looked into my centre and nodded his head: Yes, you want itI can see you. This was a revelation. I panicked because I couldnt struggle any longer and lie to myself and pretend that everything was alright.

That moment was the start of my return to myself, my heart and what I really want in this life.


Choosing a man

Women, how easily seduced we are by men who hide their indecisiveness and irresponsibility behind quotes from clever books. We are led down the garden path by their stories, which rob us of our feminine happiness, power, and make us suffer day in day out and busy ourselves with exhausting soul searching.

My ex-boyfriend put it into my head that children are an unnecessary burden, that we have other, higher aims in life and that children are the lot of normal people. These kind of men want to take all a womans maternal energy and are not prepared to share it with anyone else.

***

I asked myself whether I was happy with this person. Whether I was happy, not anyone else happy for me! I realized that during our 3 years together I was in a constant state of war and had depleted my resources. Id got much thinner, my face had become drawn and my breasts had got smaller as if they were hiding in my chest. There are men who smoke their woman like a cigarette. They dry her out, pumping out all her resources. And when the cigarette finishes they just put out the butt in the ash tray. We women are resilient and recover as soon as some extra energy appears. But with such a man it becomes much more difficult to keep afloat when he is trying to drown you all the time.

There are other men who make a lot of effort and care for their woman like for a wonderful flower. And then she blossoms and her breast-buds bloom and give out an aroma that brings joy to the gardener. More about this in A Womans breast section.

Woman is the earth and man is the seeds which he sows on her. What he fills her with will flourish. The qualities that he puts into her will be those that define her. What seeds do you want to sow in your earth? What do you want to grow in her?


Respect between partners

Respect is the stumbling block in all relationships. It is impossible to create harmonious projects without it, never mind creating a baby.

My mentor don Margarito used to say: Respeto a todos! (I respect everyone!)

When two people live in mutual respect, respect continues to multiply on both sides.

When you respect yourself, you respect your partner and people around you also respect you both. And when people respect you, all your projects grow as do you yourselves. By raising up your loved one, you raise yourselves up. And vice versa.

A relationship can be built over many years and completely destroyed in a second when respect is lost. Juan told me that one evening he was eating in a restaurant with his girlfriend when he suddenly caught her look of disgust directed at him. At that very moment he realized that the relationship had come to an end. One glance was enough to end everything.

If you catch yourselves looking at other men or women as potential partners while walking outside with your loved one, this can be called the beginning of the end. It means that you havent yet chosen decisively and are still on the lookout. And this process can be long-drawn-out.

***

Unfortunately the main principle of happiness in a couple devotion towards each other has almost been lost in our modern society. This is the feeling that, every time you meet your chosen one, you are meeting as if for the first time la primera vez. And every time you are amazed by the huge mystery before you.
