WOW…I am literally blown away by a love letter that has just crossed my path….by a real man who has a newfound love, respect and appreciation for his woman after witnessing her journey of pregnancy and childbirth…. and I am going to share it with you.
Because you and I need to hear it (perhaps seronaded by the one you love and even better with a guitar by the beach … but this will do for now….Can you spot the romantic? LOL 😉
Dear Women, (and any man willing to read this)
Please forgive me as I gently offer up this prayerful reflection about my experience as a man during the pregnancy, and birth of my daughter.
This is a love letter… A love letter to my wife, to my newborn daughter…and to you.
I have never in my life witnessed such grace, such beauty, such intuition and instinct, such heroism and power, such prayerfulness and steadfastness, and such joy and happiness as I did these past 9 months.
I may have thought I loved my wife before… but I’m not exaggerating when I say I absolutely worship her now. Emily chose to make our little Maiya’s birth a ceremony of love, and all I could do was say thank you, thank you, thank you…through tears and tears of gratitude.
If you’re a man reading this and you have a wife…take a second, stop and simply embrace her, tell her how grateful you are she exists, and let her know how honored you are to be able to experience life with her. Let her know you trust her intuition and that she is perfect.
If your a woman reading this… look in the mirror, stare into your own eyes and know that you have EVERYTHING you will ever need right in front of you …it’s already inside you, and you are amazing and capable of literally anything. Know that anything a man can do you can do (and probably better) and there are things that you can accomplish in this life that a man could never even dream of… because they were destined to be accomplished by you.
So if you see a glass ceiling, know that it’s only there so you can shatter it.
Know that you are beautiful just as you are…and you my dear, are more than enough.
You are perfection.
These are the words I pray my little Maiya will hear throughout her life from not just me, but from all the men in her world. This is my prayer of gratitude and hope for all women. This is a reflection of a humbled and awe struck man who had the bounty of witnessing the power, the supremacy, and the radiance of the feminine. This is simply a love letter, a letter of love, and a letter filled with love from a new father to anyone who needs to hear or read this.If that’s you, just know…
I love you.
Ahhhh Doesn’t this just knock your socks off? (or maybe it’s just me lol) Tell me honestly how it makes you feel here or leave a note below.
If you need a boost to remember how amazing you really are, then consider writing yourself a love letter of what you had to overcome and where you have travelled in the journey of becoming a mother or in life in general to get here and be the brilliant person you are today. All the things you appreciate about YOU. (even if you doubt it sometimes or you are not perfect ~ who really is?)
What is it that you really need to hear without waiting to hear it from someone else?
I did this love letter exercise once under a hypnotic state in a course where I was writing from my higher self without lifting the pen from the paper and just madly writing without censoring the words. Afterwards I was absolutely blown away by what I wrote. It was a powerful and healing process for me and something I really recommend doing at least once.
Or consider writing a love letter to your unborn child and tell them how much you love them and what you wish for their life. I would be honoured if you would share with me afterwards if this process makes a shift for you. In any case it will make a beautiful keepsake and something they will really treasure one day.
You are beautiful. You are amazing. You are blessed. Own it! Live it! Celebrate it! 🙂
Yours in loving reminders,
