We Are All Midwives for Life
Reflections by Susan Eirich, PhD
There are so many exciting, positive, mind-bending new learnings going on in the world. We are such an innately creative species. It is a joy for me to keep up with them in the field of human/animals/nature/Earth relations and then share them with you. Part of the pleasure is letting the information flow through me to you.
In our last conversation, one participant asked me if I felt like a midwife (I love the perceptions that come out of these conversations). After a moment’s reflection, I said, “Yes,” because what I am doing is trying to help birth new ideas and perspectives in the service of Life. And, really, I realized, each of us is working for a better world for all Life in our own way. Each of us is a midwife, asking for or receiving unexpected “downloads” from our inner wisdom or something greater than ourselves, and then finding a way to express that. I thought it was a lovely way to speak of all our collective efforts on behalf of our planet.
During this last conversation, I brought back cutting-edge approaches to animal healing from the Animal Energy World Conference—and human healing, because fundamentally we are the same—and the work of passionate people around the globe doing “Earth Repair.” I hope you find the conversation thought-provoking and encouraging.
