Musings During this Full Moon/Winter Solstice/Total Lunar Eclipse Gateway

In 2011, I intend to partner with life to co-create LOVE!

I intend to bring forth my life partner – my beloved – my rock, my support, my best friend, my ally, my safe place, my one true love – by February 14, 2011, and to be an ecstatically happy, married woman by November 11, 2011.



My beloved is my proof that life is GENEROUS beyond measure and that I am totally safe and supported by love.

I intend to be a safe haven for my beloved, his sanctuary, his heaven, his biggest fan, his #1 support person, and his one true love. My very existence inspires, empowers and fulfills my beloved beyond his wildest dreams.

Together, we inspire the world through our love and we create magnificent things that benefit millions, including (but not limited to) a conscious birth settlement, educational center, and sanctuary on Maui.

Together, we take our love into eternity by bringing forth children in the most conscious, loving, love-filled way, and we inspire and encourage millions of others to do the same.






Together, we bring forth a new form of governance in Hawaii – a system that is created by the people and for the people – a system made up of loving, conscious, individuals who understand that happy families provide the foundation for a healthy, happy nation.

This new system of governance will have as its main goal the intent to create happy families.



It will support the emergence of a culture that understands the keys to the preservation of love in families forever – a culture that stresses the importance of conscious procreation and educates about the dangers of haphazard conception and technological birth.

This new system of governance will take, as its first task, the job of allotting each willing family a 2.5 acre parcel of land on which they may create their family domain – their space of love – to be held in perpetuity so that each family may pass it on to their young.

These 2.5 acre parcels of land are to be given to each family FREE OF CHARGE, and are to be turned into infinitely sustainable, flourishing gardens situated within settlements of other infinitely sustainable, flourishing gardens.



This new governing system will bring an end to the old system that has been holding Hawaiian land for ransom, illegally selling off parcels to the highest bidder and preventing the majority of Hawaiian residents from being able to access their land and create a space of love for their families.

This new system will put an end to the toxification, desecration, and destruction of our Motherland and will make it priority to protect and honor all life – including our inter-species relatives now living in Earth’s oceans, and forests, and flying through Earth’s air-waves.












The entire Earth will become an infinitely sustainable, flourishing garden made up of happy families, joyously interacting with other species and deeply connected to their Motherland.





And God will rejoice in a job well-done.

BIRTH RAPE -- CALLING A SPADE A SPADE

WARNING - GRAPHIC IMAGES OF BIRTH RAPE ARE CONTAINED IN THIS POST. THOSE WITH WEAK CONSTITUTIONS MAY NOT WANT TO VIEW THIS POST.


BIRTH IS A SEXUAL EVENT.
GENITALS ARE SEXUAL ORGANS.
WHEN SOMEONE VIOLATES THE SANCTITY OF THE BIRTH FIELD BY VIOLATING THE INTEGRITY OF SOMEONE'S GENITAL ORGANS -- THAT IS RAPE!!!







When a woman is forced to lie down with her legs up in the air in stirrups, spread wide for all the world to see, and strangers walk in and out of the room and promptly, presumptuously, repeatedly, and unnecessarily insert their invasive hands and instruments into her vagina during labor -- THIS IS RAPE!






When a woman is physically restrained -- with tubes or wires or cords or anything else -- SOMETHING IS HAPPENING AGAINST HER WILL!




















When a woman's yoni is sliced open brutally and unnecessarily (episiotomy) due to habitual hospital protocol, THIS IS SEXUAL VIOLENCE!




















When an infant baby boy is strapped down to a board and has a piece of his penis cut-off -- without anesthesia and with absolute disregard to the extreme sensitivity and vulnerability of his being-- THIS IS RAPE AND ONE OF THE MOST HIDEOUS FORMS OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE KNOWN TO HUMANKIND.















Let's call a spade a spade. There is sexual violence occurring in hospitals everyday. Women and babies are being violated beyond our capacity to deal with it or even comprehend how dark it is. And fathers are going into shock at witnessing their partners and babies being abused and violated.

IT IS TIME TO SNAP OUT OF THE TRANCE!

IT IS TIME FOR AMERICANS TO WAKE UP!


Hospitals are dangerous and violent places to give birth. Unless is it absolutely medically necessary to give birth in a hospital, hospital birth should be avoided at all costs.

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOOL FOR CONSCIOUS PROCREATION


Birth of a New Earth is pleased to announce its intention to bring forth an international, spiritually-based, preparatory school/center that will teach the principles of conscious procreation to future parents, birth professionals, and those interested in personal healing and development. Located on Maui, and based on the vision outlined in the Ringing Cedars series of books written by Vladimir Megre (http://ringingcedars.com), the school is being brought forth as an antidote to the current trauma-based paradigm of unconscious conception and technological birth. The school will offer teachings that emphasize the importance of doing preparatory work PRIOR TO THE CONCEPTION OF CHILDREN, outlining the principles of creating a proper preconception environment, conceiving babies consciously, gestating them in trauma-free wombs, birthing them in the most gentle and loving environments, and parenting them in the most conscious way. The need for future parents to explore their own prenatal and birth experiences will also be stressed in order to ensure that any negative imprinting will not be passed on to another generation.




The Center will offer access to some of the finest teachers, teachings, and trainings, as well as workshops and seminars, teacher trainings and film festivals, and a newly added 12-week curriculum designed especially for men.

Access to the best healing modalities and treatments for the resolution and prevention of primal shock and trauma will also be available as will certification trainings for those wishing to practice and teach these modalities.

The anticipated date for the opening of this facility is March, 2011. We are actively raising funds for the creation of this school, which will be the first of its kind to exist anywhere on planet Earth. If you are moved by this endeavor and would like to support it financially, donations can be made by clicking on the paypal link below:

MUSINGS ABOUT ECSTATIC BIRTH

with special thanks to Tanya Parsons and Patti Ramos for the photographs in this blog

A colleague of mine recently asked me to share my thoughts about the upcoming ecstatic birth tele-summit which begins October 20th. What follows are some of my musings.

First, what I'd like to share is that when I read the original invitation to the event, what I kept imagining was that the word "sensuality" was being used in place of the word "sexuality" as a way to make the ecstatic birth tele-summit sound less threatening to the mainstream world. While it makes sense to me that there would be some concern about using the word "sexuality" in the context of a larger culture that is heavily engaged in the shadow expression of sexual energy, I feel it is important for us to honor (and not dilute the reality) that birth is a sexual experience -- and also for us to boldly encourage all people to get comfortable with the sexual realities of birth -- including the reality that birth (and breastfeeding) can lead to orgasm.





Second, it is important for us to understand (and speak to) the reasons why many people are uncomfortable thinking about birth as a sexual event - the main reason being, of course, that the expression of human sexuality in our culture has become shadowy and perverse, and millions of adults have been misusing their sexual energy and parasitically attaching to each other as a means of attaining physical gratification. It is one thing for us, as adults, to be willing to reduce ourselves and each other to objects of fleshy indulgence. It is quite another thing, however, for us to be willing to do this with our babies and/or turn our babies into objects through which we can gain a satisfactory physical sensation. That is why, when people think about having (and/or actually do have) an orgasm while giving birth and/or breastfeeding, many feel ashamed and uncomfortable, as if the experience of orgasm only has a place within the sordid world of carnal desire.

Even those who do not understand or "get" this on a conscious level intuitively understand it, and it negatively influences their acceptance of the idea that birth can and should be a sexually ecstatic experience.

This is something that absolutely needs to be understood and addressed (i.e., the shame we feel about having a sexually pleasurable experience in relation to our children) and it requires a discussion -- straight up -- about the dysfunction that is playing itself out in our culture around sexuality and the habit that most adult humans have of reducing themselves (and each other) to objects of physical gratification.

Third, it is important to understand that when we approach birth as if it is separate from the sex we had or are having (and the thoughts and experiences that we had or are having) during the conception and gestation of our children, we are missing something huge. Birth is not separate from the rest of our sexual attitudes, beliefs, habits, behaviors, customs and practices. And it is not separate from our past experiences. It is the CULMINATION of these experiences/ways of being and birth can often be a RECAPITULATION of earlier events. If either parent has negative, lustful, fearful, or shame-based thoughts about the sex they are having during conception (or about the person they are having sex with), this will imprint into the fetus and affect his or her life forever. Similarly, if either parent has experienced trauma around sexuality, conception, gestation, or birth, and/or if these experiences have remained unconscious and/or un-integrated by either parent, then they will unconsciously imprint onto the fetus and often play themselves out (i.e., recapitulate) during the gestation or at the birth of the child. It is imperative for us -- as leaders in this field -- to start paying attention to all of the circumstances leading up to the birth if we sincerely want to support women to have an ecstatic and pleasurable birth experience. Also, we should pay much more attention to the need for ALL FAMILY MEMBERS to have an ecstatic birth experience and not just the women.





Fourth, it is fundamental to understand that birth is not just a physical event and the CONSCIOUSNESS of the parents plays a fundamental role in the outcome of the process. When we approach birth as if the "sensuality" of birth is of primary importance, we are focusing on the physicality of birth, rather than supporting people to understand the spiritual, psychological, and psychic dimension of who we are and of what birth is. Birth -- when being experienced by two conscious parents who are bringing forth a conscious child -- is a shamanic and transcendent gateway. It is an INTERDIMENSIONAL event. During birth, we are allowing our physical vessels to become the portal through which another soul may enter into this dimension. This has HUGE spiritual implications which go far beyond having a physically pleasurable experience. Discussions about this reality appear minimal (or entirely missing) from the current teachings about ecstatic birth, yet they are essential for us to integrate (both within ourselves and within the events we organize and promote) if we hope to change the paradigm of birth and successfully bring forth a New Earth.

Everything is about our intention. Do we simply want women to have a physically pleasurable experience of birth? If so, why? Let's ask ourselves, for example, what are the benefits of a woman bringing a vibrator into her birth experience so she can have an orgasm? Is she doing this for hedonistic reasons only, and if so, what type of psychological message and imprint does this leave on her child? If physical pleasure is, indeed, a desired goal in birth, then let's make sure that we -- as teachers and leaders in this field -- are not promoting the pornographic consciousness of fleshy indulgence at birth, but rather helping people understand that ecstasy plays an essential role in activating the neurobiology of love during birth and in creating the context in which love can be preserved in families forever. This is a vital clarification to make.

My main concern is that when we focus on the "sensuality" of birth as a goal, we are promoting a truncated approach to this profoundly life-changing, initiatory rite-of-passage for parents and children. It is imperative for us to do more than simply invite women to be more connected to their bodies and to their sensuality during birth, lest we reduce ourselves and our species to physical objects and minimize the reality that birth is a powerful spiritual event. We need to support parents (both men and women) to understand the larger spiritual context of ecstasy at birth and help them "grock" the grand shamanic portal that is opening for them as they navigate through initiatory gateway of birth.

What I would like to see in the future is the creation of events where all the teachers of ecstatic birth have integrated the things I am sharing here today into their teachings. In this way, we can truly support parents to be fully conscious, integrated beings, who understand (and have moved to the other side of) the sexual, spiritual, psychic, and psychological dysfunction that exists within our culture and within themselves, and who have given full consideration to the multidimensional aspects of bringing forth life. Once that happens, a truly new experience of sexuality and birth can take place, and a truly new humanity can incarnate into our dimension.

One more thing -- regarding the Anastasia books and a comment that was made about Anastasia being a sensual woman and Vladimir lusting after her upon the sight of her naked body. Yes, Anastasia is a sensual being, just as all spiritual beings in a body are. However, Anastasia does not allow herself to be reduced to this function. She collapses Vladimir into paralysis when he attempts to approach her from a lusty/physical gratification perspective. She only allows him to approach her WHEN HE DESIRES TO MAKE A CHILD WITH HER and when his consciousness is not directed toward fleshy indulgence but to the grand aspiration of co-creating life.

And -- once Vladimir has experienced THIS TYPE of sexual experience, the usual sex becomes repugnant to him. He can no longer engage in it. And he can no longer look at Anastasia as a sexual object -- or as a prospective candidate for what our culture would term "romantic love" (which is actually lustful attraction).

Something to consider.

Here are several relevant quotes about sexuality from the Anastasia books, by Vladimir Megre:

Most people are conceived in fleshy indulgence. But Man, the image and likeness of God, should not come into the world as a result of fleshy indulgence.” (Book 4, Co-Creation, p. 168)

“Tell me who – what individual – would want to come into the world as a result of carnal pleasure alone? We would all like to be created under a great impulsion of love, the aspiration to creation itself, and not simply come into the world as a result of someone’s carnal pleasure.” (Book 1, Anastasia, p. 64)

“What people do in bed today, calling it ‘love-making,’ is a mere mockery of Love and a debasement of God. The satisfaction of fleshy needs lasts but for a moment, and I would venture to say that it cannot compare with even a hundredth part of what has been determined in God’s plan for Man.” (Book 8.2, The Rites of Love, p. 152)

“People may enter many times afresh into sexual interaction only through the flesh – not realizing that true satisfaction in the flesh is impossible to attain. A man and a woman who unite on every plane of existence, impelled by radiant inspiration, earnestly aspiring to the act of creation, experience tremendous satisfaction. The Creator gave this experience to Man alone. No transitory thing this satisfaction. In never can compare with fleeting, fleshly gratification.” (Book 1, Anastasia, p. 67)

“They will strive to possess body after body, or make paltry and fateful use of their own bodies, realizing only intuitively that they are drifting farther and farther away from the true happiness of a true union… Here is an absolutely accurate explanation of the cause of conjugal infidelity… a man and a woman – the so-called husband and wife – engage in sex just for the sake of sex. When they intuitively feel they are not getting sufficient satisfaction, they turn to a specialist and read supplementary literature on the subject. They are advised to try various positions and ways of caressing each other – in other words, to engage in a search for greater satisfaction through switching sexual techniques. Note what I said – engage in a search… but where are the limits of this search. Is it just to a change of positions? The logical next step is a change of bodies… (Book 6, The Book of Kin, p. 18)

“No woman can restrain a man from fornication if she allows herself to submit to him merely to satisfy his carnal needs. If that has happened, their marital life will not be a happy one. There marital life is only an illusion of togetherness, a lie, a deception accepted by convention. For the woman immediately becomes a fornicator, regardless of whether she is married to the man or not.” (Book 1, Anastasia, p. 63)

“[Society has] tried to attach shame to anyone who leaves his family. But nothing, at any time or in any situation, has been able to stop Man’s desire to seek out that sense of intuitively felt grace – the greatest satisfaction. And to persist in seeking it.” (Book 1, Anastasia, p. 64)

“Here is the first rule… A female desiring to bear a fully fledged Man and create a solid and happy family must be able to capture the moment at which the male wishes to join with her for the purpose of giving birth to a [child], cherishes the image of their child-to-be and desires its birth… Under these conditions the man and woman obtain the highest possible satisfaction from their intimacy. And the child-to-be obtains a kind of energy which is absent in those who are born in the traditional manner – i.e., haphazardly… The pleasure and bliss experienced through this are significantly superior to mere sexual gratification… once the man has experienced it, he cannot bring himself to exchange the new sensation for mere sexual gratification. He will not be able to, or even desire to, betray his wife – his beloved. That is the moment that marks the beginning of the formation of the family. A happy family.” (Book 6, The Book of Kin, pp. 14-15).

“Nobody in a million years will ever be able to describe in detail what occurs between him and her when, when people merge together into one for the purpose of co-creation and bring forth the image of themselves and of God in a mutual impulse of love. But the god-people of the Vedruss culture knew for certain that when two people are joined together by an unexplainable miracle, each of them subsequently maintains his or her individuality. At the same time, the Universe shudders at the unexplainable moment, upon seeing the vision of the infant’s soul tripping barefoot through the stars, making way to the Earth, thereby embodying in itself the twain – plus a third, in one. (Book 8.2, Rites of Love, p. 150)

The lovers’ bodies were not the focus of attention. The bodies simply carried out people’s will and desire. People at that moment found themselves living in a different dimension. When the great and worthy act was accomplished, they returned to the Earth.” (Book 8.2, Rites of Love, pp. 152-153)

WHAT I WANT TO OFFER AT THE EVOLOVING MEN'S CONFERENCE

1. My heartfelt desire to uplift and empower the masculine energy and to assist in the transformation of male consciousness worldwide.

2. My wisdom about the social construction of masculinity and my belief that the American definition of manhood has little or nothing to do with who men really are and everything to do with imprisoning the masculine essence on our planet and keeping it trapped in a wounded paradigm of separation from love and the feminine.

3. My ideas about how men can reclaim their power and potency as men and step fully into the Godman essence that is their birthright.

4. My knowing that a whole new culture in male/female relationships needs to be created, and that in order to do this we must be ruthlessly honest with ourselves about the way we have been manipulated and conditioned to have sex. It is imperative for us, as a species, to make a radical shift away from the lustful paradigm of “love” that we have all been participating in and steadfastly refuse to view each other as objects of physical gratification.

5. My commitment to helping men understand the damage that is being done to our species by the habit most people have of conceiving their babies unconsciously and during moments of fleshy indulgence. It is imperative for men to understand that their consciousness plays an extremely important role during the conception, gestation and birth of their children. Men’s thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes – especially at the precise moment of conception – will be imprinted onto their child’s psyche forever. The thoughts that men have about the sex they are having and the women they are having sex with will lay the foundation for the relationship patterns and sexual inclinations of their offspring. If we hope to end the lineage of a pornographically addicted, love-deprived species, we must educate men about the part their consciousness plays in the development and outcome of their children.

6. My truth that the most important thing for all humans, men and women alike, is that they find the path to creating a life filled with love. That path is outlined in the Anastasia books and is covered, in depth, in the Birth of a New Earth educational programs, some of which are designed specifically for men.

7. My ability as a woman to give birth ecstatically and to bring forth new life in a conscious, joyful way. My goal is to use this birthing ability to give birth to a whole New Earth. The future Earth will be filled with men and women living in sacred partnership, bringing forth new life in a conscious, love-filled way. All children will be deeply wanted, consciously conceived, gestated in trauma-free wombs, and birthed in gentle, loving environments. Our planet will become a flourishing garden, filled with happy families who are immersed in a culture that understands the keys to the preservation of love in families forever.

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

John Lennon

GATEWAY - A Poem About Conscious Procreation




I’m standing today at the gateway
Between what was and what is to come
Prepared to embrace my future
Yet remembering where I come from

Integration is happening inside me
All my pieces are coming together
Parts of me that were hiding in darkness
Have come into the light now – forever

The road has been long and treacherous
So many memories I kept from myself
Wounded imprints from trauma in childhood
Hidden poisons left rotting on the shelf

The courage it has taken is enormous
To lift the lid on the secret and unseen
To understand what has locked me in misery
To release it and finally feel clean

Generations of wounded have come before me
Passing their darkness onto their young
Unwilling to examine their shadows
Burying their heads and biting their tongues

Their silence and denial offends me
How dare they perpetuate their pain?
Why haven’t they owned up to their darkness?
Instead of creating more and more of the same

As a teenager I decided I had had it
That I would NOT pass on the disease
That I’d rather stay childless and single
Until at last I had found the right keys

To unlocking the doorway to divinity
Putting an end to the lineage of abuse
Saying NO to the lies of my elders
And then finally untangling the noose

The core of our pain starts in childbirth
And gestation filled with loathing and fear
Our own mothers handing over their power
Taking drugs, smoking cigarettes, drinking beer

And then birthing their babies in violence
C-sections, episiotomies, and more
Epidurals, anesthetic, and demerol
Separation that goes right to the core

Ridiculous attempts to create numbness
To deny our culture of hate
Birthing babies asleep and unconscious
Leaving infants alone at the gate

How disgusting to hand over our power
Undermining the essence of birth
What on Earth could we possibly be thinking
As we belittle our value and worth

Denying our own inner calling
To protect our infants at birth
Handing over our sons to be circumcised
Then pretending that they don’t feel traumatized

Allowing our babies to be taken
To be poked and prodded and hurt
Then placed in nurseries of horror
Their nervous systems on hyper-alert

And I question how many infants must suffer
At the hands of this sadism and pain
C-sections, episiotomy, circumcision,
All done for profit and gain

It’s pathetic and I knew it from the get go
That the buck stops with me – and that’s that
I will NOT birth my babies in violence
Or allow others to tell me where it’s at

I have grown into a strong, empowered woman
With a voice that’s committed to truth
Speaking out about outrageous betrayals
When others may think me uncouth

Well too bad! I accept myself fully
And I am done with holding myself back
Stripping away old layers of uncertainty
Putting an end to my suffering and lack

And my efforts have evolved me into an elder
That embodies great wisdom and love
Standing ready to guide the next generation
On the path to rising above

Stepping into my God-given power
At the portal to really BIG love
Now attracting the arrival of my bridegroom
On the threshold to all I dream of

Passing through the gateway to divinity
Into the life I was really born to live
Filled with passion, aliveness and abundance
And receiving all that I give

I am standing today at the gateway
To fulfilling my purpose on Earth
Sacred union of male and female
Conscious conception, enlightened gestation, ecstatic birth

NEW!!!! BIRTH OF A NEW EARTH EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR MEN


Birth of a New Earth is pleased to announce the creation of a brand new educational series designed specifically for men. This revolutionary 12-week program is being offered — first on Maui and then worldwide — as a means to uplift the masculine energy on planet Earth and to help fill a void that runs very deep in our culture due to its tendency to focus on women’s role during pregnancy and birth while relegating men to the peripheral background.

Throughout the western world, there is virtually no education or support for future fathers. The lack of information regarding the masculine role during the conception, pregnancy, and birth phases of family life has left many men feeling alienated and confused during the gestation and birth of their children. Assigned the menial position of “spare part” by their culture and by the medical profession, men have been denied the opportunity to enact their full power during pregnancy and birth, often losing the respect of their partners and unable to fully bond with their children. The alienation and isolation that fathers feel during the childbearing year is at least partially responsible for the breakdown of family love on our planet and the reason why men are leaving their families in droves. It is imperative for us as a species to reverse this negative trend and re-establish the important role of the masculine as it relates to bringing forth new life.

This series is intended to call men forward into their full power and potency and will be a forum to discuss a variety of topics including human sexuality, male/female relationships, the western definition of “masculinity,” the importance of the preconception and conception phases of childbirth, and the vital part that men need to play during the gestation and birth of their children. Classes are scheduled to begin in early November at a location that is soon to be announced.

This series is being offered FREE OF CHARGE to the first 10 men who register ($195 per person thereafter). We will be videotaping the entire series in order to use it for future television programs and to make the footage available to men and couples worldwide.

PLEASE NOTE: the teachings about conscious procreation that are presented in the Ringing Cedars series of books written by Vladimir Megre, are an essential component of this program. The first 10 men who register for this series will receive a FREE copy of the first book in the series entitled “Anastasia.”

Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you live on Maui and know someone who you think may be interested to participate in the classes, please have them contact me at jeanicebarcelo@yahoo.com.

UPDATE - BIRTH OF A NEW EARTH TEACHER TRAINING & MENTOR PROGRAM



Attention parents, parents-to-be, teachers, youth workers, childbirth educators, doulas, midwives, childbirth professionals, and those interested in personal healing and development:

The next Birth of a New Earth Teacher Training begins in just a few weeks (September 23rd). Unlike anything that has come before, this revolutionary training offers life-changing, consciousness-altering, information that lays the groundwork for the birth of a new humanity. The training provides an in-depth exploration of the entire primal period -- including the preconception environment, the conception imprint, the womb and birth experience, and the post-birth environment -- and offers quality information regarding the benefits of engaging in preparatory work BEFORE we conceive our babies. We will delve deep into the shadow side of human sexuality and childbirth (as it is being expressed in western societies) and discuss its impact on our relationships, our families, our society, and our species. We will also explore the necessary components to creating an ecstatic birth and discuss the way in which this is a fundamental component to the preservation of love in families. (Please note that the Anastasia books by Vladimir Megre (www.ringingcedars.com) have been instrumental in the development of this curriculum and all nine books are required reading for this training.)



In addition to the above, the training will also provide a forum for personal exploration and healing. Participants will have an opportunity to uncover some of their own unconscious prenatal and birth memories and will be introduced to a self-care tool (Jin Shin) that can help them repattern their own negative imprints.

I heartfully invite you to join in this amazing journey and ask that you please consider some of the benefits you will receive by joining us.

Please note that during the training,

- we will explore the topic of human sexuality in a way that has never before been discussed in any classroom, educational setting, or treatise on human sexuality

- we will discuss, at-length, the steps necessary for the creation of an ecstatic birth -- starting with a proper preconception environment and moving through the phases of conception, gestation, and birth

- you will receive in-depth information about prenatal and birth trauma and how early experiences impact our adult relationships, our personality, our physical bodies, our nervous-system, our consciousness, and our overall well-being

- you will be introduced to one of the most powerful tools for the healing and prevention of early trauma (Jin Shin) – a tool that is based in self-care, and can be shared with friends, family, and future students and/or clients

- you will deepen your awareness of your own early wounds and your capacity to consciously transform them

- you will become better parents, educators, service providers, and birth professionals

- you will receive cutting-edge information which has not been discussed anywhere before -- information necessary to uphold an ecstatic birthing field and support the transformation necessary within yourself, your students and/or your clients to create it

- you will learn how to teach the Birth of a New Earth curriculum -- a curriculum that will empower and transform you, and that will enable you to assist people worldwide with information that can truly change the face of humanity and the future of our civilization.

To view the Birth of a New Earth Curriculum, please follow this link:

http://birthofanewearth.blogspot.com/2010/06/birth-of-new-earth.html

Your willingness to participate in this training is one of the highest forms of planetary service you can offer our world.

BIRTH OF A NEW EARTH TEACHER TRAINING & MENTOR PROGRAM -- Next Training Begins September 23rd


The Birth of a New Earth Teacher Training is a 12-week preparatory program for teachers, youth workers, childbirth educators, childbirth professionals, and those interested in personal healing and development. It is designed to familiarize participants with the components of the Birth of a New Earth Curriculum and equip them to teach the Curriculum to their students, clients and/or adolescent children.

The training is an abbreviated version of the full curriculum and will provide an in-depth exploration of the importance of conscious procreation. We will review the entire primal period -- including the preconception environment, the conception imprint, the womb and birth experience, and the post-birth environment -- and discuss its relevance for the future of humanity. We will delve deep into the shadow side of human sexuality and childbirth (as it is being expressed in western societies) and discuss its impact on our species and the quality of our civilization. We will also explore the necessary components to creating an ecstatic and/or orgasmic birth and discuss the way in which this is a fundamental component to the preservation of love in families.



In addition to the above, the training also provides a forum for personal exploration and healing. Participants will have an opportunity to uncover some of their own unconscious prenatal and birth memories and will be introduced to a tool (Jin Shin) that can help them repattern negative imprints.

The Birth of a New Earth Teacher Training was created by Jeanice Barcelo, M.A, former college professor and independent childbirth educator. It is being brought forth as an antidote to the current trauma-based paradigm of birth. It has been inspired by Jeanice's own personal experiences with childbirth as well as her years of professional study and training regarding the impact of prenatal and birth experiences on the health and well-being of humanity. The Curriculum and Teacher Training have been strongly influenced by Jeanice's personal reading of the Anastasia books (www.ringingcedars.com) and her deep desire to effectuate global transformation by changing the paradigm of birth.

The Birth of a New Earth Curriculum was initially designed to educate future parents about the importance of conscious procreation. The Curriculum will have its largest impact by reaching future parents BEFORE they conceive their babies. To view the Curriculum, please follow this link: http://birthofanewearth.blogspot.com/2010/06/birth-of-new-earth.html

Next training begins September 23rd, 2010 and runs for 12 consecutive Thursdays -- 4PM Hawaii time, 7PM Pacific, 10PM Eastern. It is being offered via tele-conference and is available worldwide. All tele-classes will be 90-minutes and will be recorded and available for download at a later date.

Please e-mail jeanicebarcelo@yahoo.com or telephone 808-269-4588 for further information.

Jeanice Barcelo, M.A., is a sociologist, ecstatic birth educator and prenatal and birth trauma prevention specialist.

THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF THE FATHER DURING HOSPITAL BIRTH

This article is written to empower future fathers. It is dedicated to all the beautiful men who want to take part in the birth of their children but who have no idea what they can do to contribute to the experience of birth.

The suggestions outlined below are intended to fill a void – i.e., a void that runs very deep in our culture due to its tendency to focus on women’s role during birth while relegating future fathers to the peripheral background. Throughout the western world, there is virtually no education or support for fathers-to-be. The lack of information about the masculine role at birth has left many men feeling impotent and confused during the birth of their children and unable to play an integral part in the process. Assigned the menial position of “spare part” by the medical profession, fathers lose the respect of their partners at birth and are unable to fully bond with their children. The alienation of fathers at birth is at least partially responsible for the breakdown of family love on our planet and the reason why men are leaving their families in droves. As one heartful father recently commented:

“I took my wife to the hospital and I lost her there. She was never my wife again. A few months after the birth of our son, we were getting divorced. I haven’t seen or spoken with my wife or my son in many, many years.” David B.

It is imperative for men to reverse this negative trend and reclaim their power at birth.

The information that follows is intended to ignite a flame of understanding and remembrance within the male psyche regarding just how important a father’s presence during birth really is. The suggestions are articulated in a very blunt and honest way so as to spark men into action regarding the reclamation of their power. Because hospitals are where most babies are being born today, the following suggestions are geared toward fathers whose baby’s will be born in a hospital.

[Special thanks to Doula Patti Ramos, Angie Garrapata and Midwife Carol Gautschi for the photographs you are about to see. Please be aware that some of the photos contain graphic images of the violence of circumcision. Those with weak constitutions may not want to view these pictures.]

Suggestion #1 – Educate yourself about hospital birth and especially about the negative effects of common hospital procedures such as induction, epidural, the use of drugs like pitocin and cytotec, forceps delivery, vacuum extraction, episiotomy (i.e., slicing a woman’s vagina when the baby is ready to emerge), c-section, cutting a baby’s umbilical cord immediately after birth, and the circumcision of baby boys. Many hospital protocols are violent and abusive, and especially with respect to procedures such as episiotomy and circumcision, represent some of the most sadistic and ritualistic forms of sexual abuse occurring on our planet today. Although this truth is rarely talked about in the mainstream world, it is nevertheless the truth. If you google “negative side effects” or “complications” of any of the procedures listed above, you will be led to a plethora of information about the negative impact of habitual hospital protocols. It is imperative for you to understand the shadow side of hospital birth so that you can protect your partner and child from unnecessary and harmful interventions.



Suggestion #2 – Become a fierce protector at birth so that no harm will come to your partner and baby. This is one of the most powerful gifts you can offer, both as a man and as a partner/father. Since your partner and baby will need to be giving all of their attention to the birth itself, it is up to you to protect the birth environment. Do whatever you can to bring your full power and potency into the birthing field and stand strong in your intention to keep your partner and child safe from unnecessary hospital interventions. If protecting your loved ones means threatening to file a lawsuit against a medical professional who attempts to engage in a harmful act, do it. If it means creating a birth plan ahead of time and having the doctors sign a written agreement before the birth, do it. Whatever it takes to protect the birth environment of your partner and child – DO IT. Your courage and willingness to speak-out and stand-up to outside authority is invaluable. It is the single most important thing that you can do to enable your partner and child to feel safe and to trust that you are strong enough to protect them and keep them from harm. Your partner will respect you immensely if you do this, and your child will thank you profusely.



Suggestion #3 – Heal your own birth trauma before attending the birth of your child. This cannot be stressed enough and is particularly important if you, yourself, were born in a hospital.

95% of American hospital births are considered traumatic, with 50% of these being considered “moderately traumatic” and 45% being considered “severely traumatic.” Millions (perhaps billions) of people suffer from unconscious memories of what was done to them at birth. Although most of these memories remain unconscious throughout our adult lives, they nevertheless influence all aspects of our health and personality, AND as soon as a person enters into the experience of a hospital birth, the memories can and do “activate.” If this happens to you, it can undermine your ability to be powerfully present during the birth of your child.



Many men, especially those who were circumcised as infants, experience symptoms of parasympathetic shock (i.e., the tendency to freeze, go numb, or feel paralyzed in the presence of threat) as soon as they enter into a hospital birth environment. Although these men may not consciously remember the event of circumcision, their bodies remember and their physiology responds accordingly. Because the conditions of their child’s birth remind them of the conditions of their own birth, they freeze or go numb and are unable to stand in their power and enact their role as fierce protector during the birth of their children.

It is important for men to understand that most baby boys are circumcised WITHOUT ANESTHESIA. Although the baby is sometimes given a drug to create paralysis, he sees and feels everything that the medical “professionals” are doing to him. His vulnerable, newborn sensory apparatus is completely overwhelmed by the extreme pain, violation, and betrayal of the circumcision experience and his system has no choice but to shut itself down – i.e., to go numb, freeze, or “play dead.” This is the beginning of the tendency toward parasympathetic shock, a tendency that can last throughout the child’s infancy (many people will comment on what “good” babies these babies are because they express little or no emotion) and can rear its ugly head throughout life, especially in circumstances having to do with sexual interaction and/or birth.









When I make the claim that medical professionals are engaged in extremely violent, sadistic and abusive behavior, this is an understatement. If you would like to understand better what baby boys are being subjected to during circumcision, please view the following clips. The first link contains footage of a real baby being circumcised. The second link contains footage of a medical professional teaching other medical professionals how to perform a circumcision. Both clips are incredibly difficult to watch but will give you great clarity about the violence of the circumcision procedure.

1. A real circumcision – from the documentary “Birth As We Know It” by Elena Tonetti: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmX6RdRNoqk



2. The Circumsafe Method - a doctor describes the “proper” way to perform a circumcision: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOV9HTBfe_M&feature=related



Suggestion #4 – If your partner gives birth to a baby boy, do not allow them to circumcise your son. This suggestion should be a no-brainer after you watch the two clips above. However, if you still want more information about the negative impact of circumcision, please read the following articles:

1. A letter from a circumcised dad regarding his decision not to circumcise his son: http://www.thedaddyexperience.com/2008/07/just-to-be-fair-im-circumcised.html

2. The Psychological Impact of Circumcision: http://www.cirp.org/library/psych/goldman1/

Remember, if we want to understand how sex and violence become intertwined in the male psyche, or why we are experiencing such high levels of sex crimes in our society, as well as male attraction to pornography and the common occurrence of impotence and sexual dysfunction in adult men, we need only look to the primal origins of adult behavior and the initial sexual violation we inflict on our infant boys. Circumcision is ritual sexual abuse. Don’t let them do this to your child.

Suggestion 5 – Do not let a doctor or midwife (or any medical professional) usurp your role as primary support person at birth. This suggestion is incredibly important for the well-being of your relationship and for the long-term preservation of love in your family.

Birth, in its most primal form, is intended to be an extremely private and intimate event. Unfortunately, with the advent of hospitals and technological interventions, birth has become an inappropriately public affair.



It is important to remember that your partner’s womb and vagina are sacred. They are the doorway through which your child is about to enter this dimension. Do not allow anyone to repeatedly prod or poke at your partner’s body or continuously interfere with the birth process by barging into the room to examine her genitals. The common hospital practice of sending strangers (i.e., nurses, medical professionals, medical trainees, etc.) into the birth room while a woman is in labor, as well the habitual tendency to force women to lie down with their legs up in stirrups and their genitals exposed for all the world to see, are completely outrageous and inappropriate. It is not OK for medical personnel to place themselves directly in front of your wife’s private parts during the birth of your child. Nor is it OK for them to shove their hands repeatedly and invasively into her vagina in order to determine how dilated she is. If you allow this type of activity to occur, an unconscious rage can emerge within your partner because you did not stand-up and protect her from violation. Similarly, rage may be activated within YOU due to the violation that you are witnessing against your partner, and an unconscious feeling that she should not have allowed another man to enter into your private space. This can cause definite long-term ramifications for the health and longevity of your relationship.

Protect your wife’s bodily integrity (and the well-being of your relationship) by insisting that medical personnel keep their hands off unless there is some type of emergency. This goes for midwives as well as doctors.

Similarly, do let nurses, doctors or midwives snatch your baby away from you and your partner when it emerges from the womb. The first moments immediately after birth are crucial for the creation of a strong love-bond between parent and child. Insist that you or your partner be the one to catch your baby as it emerges from the womb. And make sure that your baby be immediately placed skin-to-skin on either yours or your partner’s body (preferably on mom’s body, but if she has been anesthetized, place the baby on your own body) as soon as he or she comes out of the womb. Do not allow others to take center-stage during the birth of your child.

Suggestion #6 – Make eye contact with your baby immediately at birth in order to maximize the opportunity for LOVE to activate within your own neurobiology and that of your baby’s. This is an extremely important suggestion and goes for both you and your partner.



The moment of birth offers a unique window of opportunity for the activation of love for all family members. The particular neuro-chemical soup that is available during birth (i.e., oxytocin, endorphins, and other hormones of love and well-being) will not be available in the same way at any other moment during life. Immediate eye contact with your child can support the activation of the neurobiology of love within you and your child, which will allow you to cement the bond between you and lay the groundwork for the preservation of love in your family forever.





On a fundamental human level, babies need to look into the eyes of love immediately upon their arrival. This experience would happen naturally if birth were occurring in a gentle, loving environment. Unfortunately, most births are not happening in a gentle environment, and on the contrary, are taking place in an environment filled with harsh lights, loud sounds, technological equipment, frightening-looking sharp and pointy metal instruments, people wearing masks and gowns, etc. – all of which can terrify and confuse a newborn infant. Therefore, in order to combat the frightening and traumatic sights and sounds of a hospital environment, it is extra important for your love-filled eyes to be the first visual thing your child sees.





Similarly, it is extremely important for you to hold your child and place your child skin-to-skin on yours or your partner’s body. This will activate your baby’s sensory mechanisms to produce the neuro-chemicals of love, which will create an imprint of well-being that can last a lifetime.



Suggestion #7 – Do not allow medical personnel to cut your baby’s umbilical cord until well after the cord has stopped pulsing. Better yet, cut the baby’s umbilical cord yourself.

Standard hospital protocol involves clamping and cutting the baby’s umbilical cord immediately after birth. This habitual hospital practice is violent and unnecessary and can traumatize your baby and undermine his/her health.

When babies first emerge from the womb, they are not breathing. Instead, they are receiving all of the oxygen they need from the placental blood as it pulses through the umbilical cord into their tiny little bodies. When their umbilical cord is immediately clamped or cut, the baby’s oxygen supply is abruptly cut off, forcing him/her to gasp for breath in fear for his/her life. Additionally, the baby’s connection to its mother is abruptly and violently severed, at a time when the baby is extremely vulnerable and the connection to its mother is most vital. This brutal hospital practice can create a long-lasting imprint of trauma for your child and even undermine his/her health.

The blood that is pulsing through your baby’s umbilical cord contains vital nutrients to help your baby create a strong immune system. Your baby will be denied these nutrients if his/her umbilical cord is clamped too soon.



Be aware that hospitals have a financial incentive to cut umbilical cords quickly because they are in the business of gathering up the cord blood and selling it off to the highest bidder. The real reasons for this are not something I wish to address in this article. However, it is important for you to understand that your baby’s cord blood belongs with your baby and not with some vampiring entities or institutions that want to use it for their own sordid reasons.

There is absolutely no medical reason why hospital personnel cannot wait to cut your baby’s umbilical cord. If they try to do this too soon, step in and protect your child.

The best option of all would be for you or your partner to clamp and cut the cord yourself – once you have determined that it is safe and appropriate to do so. This would be the most honoring and loving approach to the cutting of the cord and would allow your baby the time he/she needs to adjust to life outside of the womb. It is also possible (but extremely rare in the case of hospital birth) for parents to choose “lotus birth” – i.e., allowing the cord to fall off on its own – which usually takes several days. In this way, you will know your baby is absolutely ready to deal with his/her individuation and has had the time necessary to adjust to separation from its mother.
