Pregnancy Is a Metaphor

by Cassendre Xavier

Being able to co-create and carry life within is a highly admired trait often attributed to wimmin and other female beings. But as we now know, one needn't be female to create or carry life (many offspring-baring species aren't), and even humyns without typical wombs can now carry life.
 Even before we knew and made these things, the idea of being pregnant was something that goes beyond the ability to make a baby.
 Are you "pregnant with possibility"? We all are!
 Each one of us is gifted with the ability to co-create a thought, an idea, and take action to help make it happen.
 What do you want to bring into your reality?
 What gift(s) do you have to offer the world, or even more importantly, yourself?
 Don't think that if you are a male or a wombless female that you cannot be in a way pregnant.
 You can!
 Think today about how you can give birth... to a new part of you... to a dream you have not yet spoken... to perhaps maybe even a whole new life of your own.
 Be a blessing to the world by being a blessing to yourself...Make something happen... 
 And give birth.
