Holographic Breathing – Our internal Mother and Child and the dance of orgasmic birth.
This experience first happened whilst I was working with the pelvis and later it became one of the journeys I teach in Holographic Breathing.
I had been discovering how the bones of the pelvis move with Holographic Breathing. Once I understood this, I started looking at the energies of these bones. The different areas of the pelvis relate to the five elements – earth, fire, water, air and ether. When we are looking at separate energies we are working at a particular level, but when all of these energies start flowing back and forth, complementing and feeding each other, the experience jumps to a higher level and normally has the quality of joining with the universe. As this happened in my pelvis my experience was that it melted and became a portal to the universe. There was also a quality of creation to this new energy.
On a fundamental level the pelvis holds the experience of creation – life is created in our pelvis, and I could feel I was connecting to this same quality in the universe – The energy that stars and galaxies are created from.
After being in this experience a while my spirit dropped into the pelvis, and I naturally started having the experience of being a baby there, as I dropped further in the pelvis this initiated the start of a birth process. At first I was feeling being the baby, but as this experience was contained in my pelvis, I was also having the experiencing of being the mother in labour. I moved back and forth between these two experiences, first the baby, then the mother.
Internally these two arise together, the mother and baby are held in one experience. It is only in our perception of birth that we have held them separately – we are the baby and the mother is another, or we are the mother and the baby is another. But even on the physical level birth is a shared experience.
The experience of these two fundamental parts of myself coming together was an interesting one. What would normal be considered as the discomforts or pressures of birth, for both the mother and baby were balancing between them and healing. As I moved deeper in this journey, these pressures become pleasurable and like a low orgasm.
There is often fear around giving birth, this combined with the pain, often lead to a sense of urgency and to get through the experience. But in this inner experience there is not the fear, and it becomes nice to hang out and enjoy the unfolding journey.
Through this whole time I was aware of the energies of the earth and universe, which seemed like a wonderful way to hold the journey and gave it another dimension.
The experience is through the whole body, but In the mother the sensation is more in the pelvis, and in the baby the sensation is more in the cranium. These two polarities reflected each other, and as I slowly went through labour the general holding patters of my cranium and pelvis were also slowly balancing and releasing.
When we are working with the different bones of the pelvis they mirror the bones of the face and cranium. The pelvis and cranium are the same thing but on different levels, like the octaves in music.
The pelvis is the chalice, and more connected to the earth, and the cranium is more connected to the heavens.
so when these two come together in birth, the bones and energies of the babies cranium are meeting their reflection in the mothers pelvis, and on another level with in us the complementary parts of heaven and earth are also coming together.
As this unfolds we have a new birth for today and this time.
It is possible to do this as may times as you wish and hanging out in it, in different ways, exploring the energies and experience. It is also great for mothers who are going to be using Holographic Breathing through birth, as it gives them the experience that birth can be easy and that this is what we are designed to do, on all levels.
Some participants I have worked with have had a Cesarean birth so this gives them the opportunity to have the experience of birth for them selves.
After a while as the baby I could see the two sit bones coming down either side of my cranium and all of a sudden I was coming out. I was not expecting this, this part went very quickly, and there I was out of my self, born. I brought myself to my breast and started to suckle, this is very easy with Holographic Breathing as the movement of the mouth in this breathing, is like a very subtle form of suckling. The feeling of being the mother breast feeding was also very pleasurable and I could feel it helping to integrate the pelvis from the birth and stimulate the placenta to be born.
I still had the connection to the heavens and earth and they were there like benevolent parents.
After a while when every thing seemed complete I let the mother and baby merge into one. That is what they seemed to want.
As a man I had not been expecting to experience the female side of birth, but on taking people on this journey it seems just as available in men as in women.
A few months before I had been in a sweet lodge, and the shaman had said that spirit was going to teach me what it was like to give birth, I was not sure I was so taken with the idea at the time. But when this experience happened with Holographic Breathing it was freeing and the next day everything looked very new.
Also later when teaching this to a birth worker who had trained as a natural midwife with shamans in the Amazon. She said that shamans have to experience birth for them selves before they can be a midwife, and she felt this internal birth was the same experience they were talking of.
Any way I was happy, and since this time many participants have gone on this Journey with Holographic Breathing. It has helped many mothers as a preparation to their birth, many having the experience that this is what the pelvis is made for and feeling less afraid in their birth. The connections to the universal and higher energies are also helpful and give a grounding to hold birth.
In the description this may all seem a bit strange but in the experience of the journey it all comes very naturally. It is one of the later seminars in Holographic Breathing so by this time participants are more experienced. This is normally a favourite seminars for people. Everyone I can remember has naturally dropped into it and most have a profound experience of this rite of passage and the energies that come to play in childbirth.
