    Letting Go of Trauma for Ease with Selena Shelley

    In this episode of The Calmer Mom Podcast, host Michelle Noble chats with Selena Shelley, a licensed Mental Health Counselor and an approved trainer for "When Survivors Give Birth."

    Key Takeaways:
     
    Empowering children and respecting their body consent is key to raising independent and confident individuals.
    While nurturing self-expression is important, setting boundaries is also crucial, as demonstrated by Selena's example about her daughter's use of makeup.
    Engaging in emotional and trauma-related work during pregnancy offers an opportunity for healing and a smoother motherhood experience.
    The metaphor of passing a baton symbolizes the important transition of care and responsibility from parent to child, which is a significant aspect of parenthood.

    Goddesses, Babies, and the Divine Feminine with Diana Jyoti

    Goddesses, Babies, and the Divine Feminine with Diana Jyoti

    In this episode, host Michelle Noble speaks with Diana Jyoti, hospice nurse, intuitive healer and spiritual teacher to explore the concept of receiving. As mothers, it can be easy to get caught up in the daily grind of responsibilities, leaving little room for self-reflection and inner work.
     
    However, by opening ourselves up to vulnerability and embracing discomfort, we can tap into a deeper level of receptivity and access the resources we need to grow and heal.
     
    In this conversation, Diana and Michelle share their own personal journeys of self-discovery and offer practical advice for moms looking to cultivate a receiving state in conception, pregnancy, and beyond. Tune in to learn how to embrace discomfort, release fear, communicate with your baby (even before they are born!), and tap into your own inner wisdom.
    Key Takeaways:
    Set aside fear and choose greater possibilities: By acknowledging and setting aside our fears, we can make choices that lead to greater possibilities.
    Our children choose us: By opening our hearts, our beings and our consciousness to our babies, we add to the communion, the receiving, and the gift of the pregnancy and motherhood experience.
    Healing ourselves is critical to hearing the messages our little ones are asking to share with us. And healing requires courage, vulnerability, and support.
    Homeplay - Questions for beginning and end of life, and every relationship in between: What do you want? Where are you? How do you want this process to look? Do you even want to be in this process? What are your goals? 
    Cultivate curiosity, wonderment, and listening. Embrace vulnerability and willingness to receive.
    Tap into the energy of what you would like your life to be like. It will give you a compass for making choices.
    A healthy ecosystem requires both creation and destruction: As in Nature, Motherhood can include both creation and destruction in order for the ecosystem of our lives, our bodies, and our families to thrive.
    Embrace vulnerability and willingness to receive: By embracing vulnerability and being willing to receive from everything, we can experience the gifts and resources available from others and the universe.
    Let go of control : By letting go of control, you open yourself to receiving the gifts and resources that are available, so you can discover new insights, ideas, and possibilities that can lead to great change.

    Creating an Extraordinary Pregnancy and Motherhood Experience

    Creating an Extraordinary Pregnancy and Motherhood Experience

    In the first episode of The Calmer Mom Podcast, Michelle Noble shares her journey to creating an extraordinary experience in pregnancy and motherhood. She highlights the fact that what is considered normal or usual in pregnancy, birth, and motherhood doesn't work for most women and their children. The episode is about the possibility of creating a different experience, unique to yourself and your baby, and a creation that is about communion and trusting you.
     
    What was talked about in this episode:
    It is possible to have a greater experience in pregnancy and motherhood than is considered normal or usual, but  most women are settling for less because they don’t know they have a choice .
    Looking in the usual places, such as Google and reading books, can provide information about how to have a normal or usual pregnancy, but not about creating a unique experience.
    Michelle Noble shares her background as a massage therapist, craniosacral practitioner, life coach, and energy transformation specialist working with the tools of Access Consciousness®
    Michelle shares her experience of getting pregnant and planning a home birth, but still not having the birth of her dreams.
    Michelle talks about the impact of focusing on what she did not want, instead of inviting, allowing, and being curious so she could receive and be open to having the birth of her dreams.
