Letting Go of Control

Letting Go of Control

  • October 21, 2013

Here in our western world, we believe that if something is wrong it is our fault. You’ve probably heard, “If you’d just relax, you’d get pregnant!” While the mind-body approach acknowledges that stress and infertility are related, it does not imply you are in control of what you cannot control. Mind-body medicine is about taking control back by taking care of your whole self. A near-universal experience of infertility is that feeling of being “out of control.” The world is broken. What has always worked, no longer does. Trying harder brings greater failure. You are in a fight for your life, but you don’t know the rules. At every turn, you are asked to let go, let go, let go. While the answers to having and maintaining control exist outside yourself, the answers to relinquishing control can be found only within yourself. Jungians say, “God enters through the wound.”
