Today our newsletter is dedicated to future moms and dads, and of course, our children.

In books written by Vladimir Megre much significance is given to children. Anastasia brings back to our society the long lost wisdom of an ancient culture, wisdom which intuitively every future parent is searching for.
Sometimes it comes in late in our life when many steps of co-creating a beloved child are in the past, in which case we need to take advantage of the ancient knowledge which remains in our culture, like knowledge of homebirth which can guard the spirit of a child in the first moments of life against aggression and make our future more beautiful.

We offer you a story of a woman and her two children, children who came to life in their own home. Also, specifically for you we opened a topic in the “Source of Life Library” to help parents understand how important for a Man it is to be born in love and in harmony with the new world. You will see how homebirth will help parents provide to a child privacy and peace.

You can discuss this subject on Source of Life Association forum. Also, please make your vote on a given subject.

Patience to Birth in Power: River's Birth Story

The story of my homebirthing of my first-born son, River, is one of deep soul-work, self-discovery, and awesome woman power. Read this one page account of my emergence into homebirth and midwifery, and I'll share with you the journey which began my dedication to helping women and babies on peaceful birthing paths.

I pushed River out, from the water of my womb, into the water of my own bathtub on the eve of November 16, 2001. Weighing 8 lbs and measuring 19 inches, River was lifted by his Papa's and our midwife's hands straight to my breast. The candlelight made soft silhouettes of our bodies, and my little boy's first sensations outside the womb were ones of gentleness and peace. The energy of Universe permeated our home, and all was Love. It was my conscious intention, personal reflection and dedication, and the support of my community which enabled me to fulfill my dream of giving birth at home.

The story of my 43-hour-long labor really began even before my actual pregnancy. Having read Spiritual Midwifery, by Ina Mae Gaskin, as a teen, I was turned on to the magnitude of peace power when women give birth at home. As a girl growing up in a technomedically-driven household (my Dad was a physician), I observed a medical model of giving birth where women are denied their personal power in hospitals. Laboring women are given "labor time schedules" and an air of inevitability that they will want drugs, with unfamiliar interns and nurses coming in and out of their birth rooms. From this early age, I knew this wasn't right, and i queried my Father on his own birth, which was at home just like his 6 other siblings. There was something in me that flowered, when I decided that I would birth at home with a midwife, somewhere off in my future.

Years later, my supportive husband would be a crucial part of my homebirth journey, as we discussed how babies have the right to come onto this planet in a gentle way. We knew that parenthood was a divine undertaking, and to seek the most perfect beginning for us and our little one, was our chosen path. In February of 2001, I was pregnant and began to search for a midwife to assist me come November, our baby's arrival month.

The state we lived in, Missouri, is one of eight in America where the practice of midwifery is criminalized, permitting only certified nurse midwives (in conjunction with an MD) to work legally. The city I lived in had only one practicing nurse-midwife who did homebirths, and I contacted her immediately. Initially excited and hopeful during a one-hour meeting with her, I became disappointed when I heard the $1,800 fee, knowing that we did not have that money to exchange. For 36 weeks, then, I let my homebirth dream sit idle, going to see nurse-midwives at the local hospital, covered by Medicaid. Refusing all of their pregnancy-screening tests like blood-sugar level testing and many others, I remained confident that my healthy vegetarian diet, regular exercise, and Love were growing a healthy baby.

I hired a doula (who is now a friend) at 4 months pregnancy, and I began the prenatal yoga class that she taught. My doula had given birth at home, and her story was important to me in our sisterhood bonding and trust-building. I got to see her each week, along with other beautiful pregnant mamas at our yoga class, building even more of a strong mama circle. The energy shared among women in bloom is one that cannot be described, yet it is a present-day and ancient, lovely vibration which the Earth knows well and wants women to feel.

I believe it was the fears I was holding which put a temporary halt to my homebirth dream. Yet, my intention sent spirit in motion, and at 37 weeks gestation, a friend told me of her aunt, a midwife, whom i could connect with. It was here that I felt my power grow and my dream become clearer. This sweet midwife, whom I will call Raya, told me that I needed to face all of my fears before I would be able to bring my little baby out into my own home. Already close to term (40 weeks gestation), she agreed to guide me spiritually and be present with me in support when I went into labor.

Three more weeks passed, and i began to internalize some of the "time pressure" the nurse-midwives were constantly talking about. "You don't want to go over your due date...Your baby could be harmed if you don't get induced", was what they said over and over. I had a mind set that was letting some of this fear penetrate but there was this stronger place inside that said, "No way. My baby is fine, and he will come when he's ready." Admittedly, I wanted my baby to come, so i chose an acupuncturist who did a labor-inducing session with me. Later that night, the rushes began to come, their drum-beat consistency feeling totally lovely at first. I called no one but Ben, my husband, and he danced with me, held my hand, and gave simple words of loving encouragement. I spent the whole next day doing my work: cleaning my house, crocheting, dancing, and feeling the contractions increase in intensity as I moved.

Another sleepless night passed, and I remembered my midwife's words, saying that in changing the word "pain" to "intensity" it would make the sensations a lot more bearable. It's true that word medicine shapes your reality, and this simple trick helped me. The next day, I called my doula and midwife, and they stayed with me into the evening, watching me dance, listening to me moan and sing. The beautiful interplay of Ben, and the two women was amazing. They would squat in front of me as i squatted, touching the person who was in front of me, holding my hands. Gracefully and instinctively, they would switch, one person fetching a cloth to bring coolness to my forehead. All these acts of love and gentleness, my baby was feeling with me. And it was when the new moon was high on that chilly November evening, when sweet River came with one transitional push, into the bathtub's sacred waters. I spoke to him in Spanish, as we awaited the birth of his placenta, and he simply opened his eyes, looked around, and started to suck my breast's nipple.

45 minutes later, the placenta was born, and we placed it in a bowl, leaving his umbilical cord still attached to the pulsing organ with the other end connected to River's belly. It is not good to sever the cord right at birth, as the baby is still receiving important oxygen-blood flow, and it's quite shocking to a baby to do this so we chose to wait until the placenta stopped pulsing. My midwife asked how we wanted to free River from his placenta, and I instinctively asked to chew it off. At a distance of 8 inches from his belly, I chewed River's umbilical cord, and we coiled the remaining cord around his belly button. It dried and fell off, leaving a perfect belly button, and a hardened umbilical cord that will be a reminder to him of his sacred birth for the rest of his life.

My life opened to the power and simplicity of home birth, and my Motherhood was glowing with Love and connection to my new little one. Now 4 years old, River knows his birth story well, and has his own thoughts to share about how babies are born onto this Earth. He says that babies want to be born to their mamas and their mamas alone. "They don't need anybody getting in the way", he says, and I agree.

Lunaya's Birth at Dawn

My second child, Lunaya, was born to me at 7:01 AM on September 13, 2005, in the same bathtub as her brother. Weighing 8 lbs (just like River) and measuring 21 inches, she arrived with a quicker pace and a gentleness like no other.

A Blessingway is a ceremonial gathering to honor a pregnant woman, which has varying rituals or pampering activities for the woman carrying a child. Mine occurred less than 24 hours before Lunaya's arrival, and as I sat there under the willow tree surrounded by beautiful women giving me blessings, my contractions were steady and making me focused in breath. Dreamlike in its scenery, the late summer sunshine and green- everything of the gardens at my Blessingway were sweet to this active labor of mine. My friends, many of whom had also given birth at home before, were witnessing me labor, and the loving energy of this circle was so much a part of the community to which Lunaya was being born to.

News was shared about our friend's home birth 2 days before, and also a prayer was sent out to another friend in the midst of her homebirth labor, during my Blessingway. How awesome and special this was to have shared in our pregnancies and then the time-space of our births! For me, this circle of women had grown in rooted connectedness since my first home birth back in 2001. Having the intuitive knowing of my baby being a girl throughout the whole pregnancy, this circle of women became even more integral to my spiritual community.

The rushes were coming on so strong at the end of my Blessingway that I asked my friend for a ride home, even though my house was just a mile away. Soon after entering my home, a friend arrived to deliver the community birthing tub which had just been born into 2 days before. Joyous at the site of this beautifully-painted water tub, decorated by my friends, I danced around it and sang.

The rest of the evening was filled with my walking about the house, preparing River for sleep, and connecting with Ben, my husband, during the rushes. Ben and I didn't realize that we did not have a certain part to the birthing tub necessary for the faucet hook-up, but the flow of the labor kept me focused on the NOW. The only other person I was welcoming to Lunaya's birth was a friend who lived 3 hours away, so this was going to be an "unassisted" birth, by legal standards.This second labor of mine was so different from the first in that it felt so familiar, easier to breathe through the rushes, and filled with direct communication with my Grandmothers. I had dreams that Lunaya's cord would be around her neck, and I spoke to both her and my Ancestors.

"Sweetheart, come out freely, and we will do what we need to. I love you, and thank you for your presence, Grandmothers. You are here with me and Lunaya!"

Sometimes intently looking into my eyes in the mirror, I sent my body and all parts of my being such an strong love vibration, and I could feel Lunaya's receptivity to this. A waning crescent moon filled the night sky, and my sleepless night was still energized with Light and my coming baby!

Things really started to shift to transition-like sensations, and I got the call from my friend who announced that she was not 3 hours away, but 15 minutes away! What a relief! I had called her at 10:30 PM to just announce that the rushes were picking up, telling her that she should not come just yet. She heard it in my voice, I guess, that she had better prepare for the trip, so that is what she did. Arriving just one hour before Lunaya's emergence, we stared into each other's eyes, held hands, and breathed together.

The Sun's rays were beginning to spread across the Earth as I breathed, panting shortly, and believe it or not, staring at my friend's gorgeous-looking toes with her toe ring. I told her how prettly they looked, and we all laughed at such a strange comment considering the scene. A few minutes after this, i hopped into the bathtub, where Lunaya's head came out of my yoni. My friend said that she did not see a cord around her head, but Ben was right there, and he did see one. My dear husband was the midwife to this situation, and he skillfully slipped his fingers in the right way and removed it from her neck.

Lunaya opened her eyes, looked at me as I sang to her, and began sucking my nipple, all in the water. 10 minutes later, the placenta was born, and we put it in a bowl, still connected to her. Our bedroom was the place where I chewed the cord to separate it from her body, as I did with her big brother, and it was awesome to do this primal activity again!

Holiness and Peace filled my body, my baby, and all present. Truly, the sensation of more peace emanating from that space and time was sent out to the Earth and the Universe, and I welcomed this little woman-child to my life with an open heart....She is now 16 months old, and still emanates this sweet tranquility, and thank Love that I have such a heart-filled story to share with her forever!!

    Posted by Pinia in section Health on Apr 20/2006:

    Good late evening.I only wanted to share my opinion on health.
    As we all know everything is conected with everything, so that`s why there are many health problems today in the world, and specially in our modern, western world.We fight many problems, we all know about them.

    I wanted to point out on some "health problems" which are now very popular in Europe (I dont know, if this is also popular in America), and it`s bird flu. I think (and not only me) that all the chaos around it is going crazy. I see this problem also from another perspective. All that this chaos does for people is, that it causes fear. Fear from birds. Where this can lead?
    It can lead to another disconection from our real source of Real Life, and that source is Nature. The artificial-technocratic system, (as Anastasia is pointing on, too), tries to connect us to his rules and disconect us from the real source of life. Some people are already afraid to feed birds, and avoid going out to see them, which is sad. They have fear.
    I think, we should not always believe what somebody wants us to believe, but instead become more sure that we can trust our own guts. Of course, it takes a deep journey to our hearts and intuition, which we don`t use as much as we could. It`s understandable. All that technocratic system wants from us is to be conected to his artificial enviroment and believe many lies he presents as truth. Technocratic system definitely doesn`t need us to be ourselves. For him it`s best to be soulless, heartless and mindless, too. Hmmm.....it sound horrible, but, what do you think?
    Anyway. Only there, in our hearts, we can find peace and when there's peace, there will be health, obviously, too. My message: Don`t watch too much of TV news, I found out, that my health improoved since I stoped, watching them, I only watch them rarely. Instead I found more time to think about really important things in my life I can have control over and those I can change, and not being bothered about things which I can not change and all they can do for me is making me feel sad or frustrated. People,we really need to start from ourselves. That`s the magic. Healthy lifestyle consist from many aspects of life, it`s not just right and balanced diet. It` so much more. The state of our mind, seems to me to be a paramont. With healthy mind there can be a healthy body, and in healthy body there can be a healthy spirit. Well, may you all find out the best ideas for yourself how to be happy and live healthy. Use the divine creativity,which our Father gave us to make this world an Eden.
    With kisses Pinia.

    Cedar the Healer

    The Siberian 'Cedar' (also known in the West as the Siberian pine ) is one of the most beautiful and majestic trees on the Earth. Ever since the very earliest times it has been considered a life-giving, healing tree. Cedar wood excretes phytoncids, which destroy disease-inducing micro-organisms and serve to purify the air with healing and healthful properties. In the Old Testament (Leviticus 14: 4) God teaches how to heal people and even disinfect dwellings with the help of… the Cedar.

    Scientists note that Cedar-paneled rooms are practically bacteria-free, down to 200–300 bacterial cells per cubic meter. It should be pointed out that according to medical standards, even in operating rooms a level of 500–1000 non-pathogenic microbes per cubic meter is permitted.

    Cedar walls emit positive energy. In Cedar houses the air is always clean.

    Siberian Cedar timber has a beautiful composition, with a lovely rosy color. The noble color of this sacred tree delights one's eyes and cheers one's mood year after year. Cedar timber is resilient against decay, and is hardly ever subject to canker-worm.

    The cedar has a special spirit and influence. It eliminates tension, increases bodily immunity, and facilitates rapid health recovery after a difficult disease or operation.

    The Siberian Cedar is the beauty and national pride of Russia.

    Residents of Siberia use Cedar wood in their everyday lives. Carpenters lay down Cedar floorboards in peasant huts, which are both beautiful to look at and warm to the touch. The Cedar's resinous wood wards off all sorts of bugs, and thus has been used from the very earliest times to make furniture, including trunks, wardrobes, cupboards and dressing tables. Cedar furniture is never troubled by moths, but even when dresser drawers or trunks were made of other kinds of wood, they would invariably place cedar cones in them. Just like the wood, Cedar cones ward off bugs with their scent.

    Peasants in certain regions believed the Cedar wood killed harmful microbes. And so they preferred to make the bottom and lid of birch-bark cylinders out of Cedar. In Western Europe cedar wood was used in the manufacture of milk jugs. The craftsmen claimed that milk kept in such a jug would last a long time before spoiling and would take on a pleasant flavour.

    All products made from Cedar possess a powerful beneficial energy.
