Conceiving dreams: crafting your fertility journey vision board with self-hypnosis

Why Visualisation Matters in Your Fertility Journey!

 Visualisation is the process of creating a mental image of your desired outcome, Using visualisation has a number of benefits and can be especially useful in the context of your fertility journey. Here’s why:

Stress reduction: Visualisation and self-hypnosis can help reduce stress and anxiety, promoting a more relaxed state of mind as you move through your fertility journey.

Enhanced positive thinking: Visualisation encourages a positive mindset by focusing on your desired outcome, boosting self-confidence, and self-belief.

Improved mind-body connection: Visualisation allows you to connect your conscious and subconscious minds, so they work in harmony, which can positively influence hormonal balance and reproductive health.

Increased resilience: A strong mental state created through visualisation can help you overcome the challenges and uncertainties associated with fertility struggles.

The science behind visualisation

It’s essential to understand that visualising your fertility journey isn’t just a magical woohoo; it’s supported by scientific principles:

Activation of the RAS (Reticular Activating System): When you visualise your goals, you program your brain to pay more attention to relevant information in your environment. This enhanced awareness can help you identify resources and opportunities that support your fertility journey.

Reduction of cortisol levels: Visualisation and self-hypnosis can lower cortisol, the stress hormone, in your body. Lower cortisol levels can improve mood, hormonal balance and fertility.

Brainwave synchronisation: Visualisation can lead to a state of mind where both hemispheres of your brain work in sync, resulting in greater emotional balance.

Creating your fertility journey vision board with self-hypnosis

Prepare Your Space: Find a quiet, comfortable space where you won’t be disturbed.

Relaxation: Get comfortable, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. With each exhale, release any tension from your body.

Self-Hypnosis: Take yourself into a relaxed and suggestible state (you can find resources online or consult with a hypnotherapist to learn self-hypnosis techniques).

Visualisation: Once you’re in a state of deep relaxation, start visualising every detail of your desired outcome – getting a positive pregnancy test, experiencing your pregnancy milestones, your birth, holding your baby in your arms…

Regular Practice: To reap the full benefits, practice self-hypnosis and revisit your vision board regularly.

Your vision board will be as unique as your own journey, and filled with what’s important to you, with your personal hopes and desires.
