Trying To Conceive Over 40 - Pregnancy Over 40One of the most frustrating things about trying to conceive month after month is that you can't really see what's going on. Let's face it, most of us don't have a high powered microscope hanging around our house - and even if we did, how on earth would we capture all the events involved with conception...Did the sperm meet the egg? Did the embryo find it's way down the fallopian tube? Did the embryo find a good spot to implant? If it did implant, is it getting the right mix of hormones and nutrients? It goes on and on...if you think about it, it's a miracle anyone gets pregnant.
So how do you deal with moving blindly through the getting pregnant maze? Well...here's how I dealt with it. I made my own step by step, frame by frame story board in my mind. That's what I call visualization. I would picture the sperm meeting the egg, the egg moving effortlessly through the fallopian tube (I only had one), I would visualize a little fairy (similar to Tinkerbell) helping the egg attach and so on. Sound crazy? Maybe, but all I can say is that it works. I truly believe that your mind has the ability to control actual physical processes in your body. At least for me, the best way to communicate to my body through my mind was with the use of pictures.
It's true, a picture is worth a thousand words and it's a heck of a lot easier than trying to use a microscope.
I received so many inquiries about visualization, that I developed my CD on guided visualization and meditation. Learn more here:

Whether or not you think this CD would be helpful, you should develop your own method of visualizing what you want. Not only does it help you to attract what you want into your life, it can also be a great stress management tool. It's hard to be in a bad mood when you think about your soon to be baby.
