Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives Reviews
If you are the type that likes to get in touch with your spiritual side, looking internally & having those deep moments within yourself through silence and meditation - then this book is for you. I found peace every time I read this book in stressful situations. It reminded me what was important, getting connected with the beautiful life growing inside of me & finding the most harmonious thoughts/feelings for a healthier/happier baby....
This book really helped me have a connection to my pregnancy right off the bat. It is more for the hippy or holistic type of people. So if you aren't into occasional meditation, incense, or essential oils, or if you are not open to those types of things, this book will be hard to read. For me, it actually put me to sleep some days. I think it is especially helpful for people who are high strung, or have anxiety like I do. It really has a calming effect on the reader. LOVED IT!
This books is everything i hoped it would be. I loved the visualization exercises, as well as the thoughtfully organized structure of the book. It was easy to read, and one of my top favorite pregnancy books so far, (and I've ordered a lot). Even my husband, who isn't as naturally mind or crunchy as I am, appreciated the holistic approach and explanations, and found that he learned things as well. Highly recommended.
I bought this book for my 2nd pregnancy and it was so great to read along the way until the baby was born. I loved it. I have had 2 successful natural unmedicated births and this book helped show me some other techniques and natural ways to handle pregnancy and labor.
This book filled me with such light and peace. Im amazed tab mindset that you can achieve from practicing the exercises in this book and honestly looking deep into yourself as you create a mindful pregnancy. I am much more aware and enlightened in my pregnancy now and highly recommend this book! If you really listen with your heart to the words written, you to can have a conscious mindful pregnancy and birth
This was my first foray into Deepak Chopra's work. I thought it was an easy read, and gave some good general concepts. It is very will written and offers some interesting ideas about how to have a relaxed and mindful pregnancy.
I enjoyed this book. There is some good information here that covers early pregnancy through early motherhood. There are great natural remedies and personal care ideas too, and a chapter for dads. I actually listened to this on cd from my library and liked it so much I wanted to have my own copy on hand.
Great author and great read. He talks about everything in a spiritual light and assumes that women are strong and knowledgeable about their own needs. It is much different than the traditional pregnancy books, and I highly recommend it.
