Breathe, breathe in the Air – imagine that. When overwhelmed, this is all I have to do, just this one simple thing, my body knows innately how to do it, I run the tape over and over in my head until I feel more in the middle again, “Take a deep breath in, hold that breath, then breath out slowly”. Yep, that’s better.
I am lucky, my son goes out of his way to show me different perspectives. Choosing to be born feet first, I learnt much about letting go, advised by the midwife to do this completely during contractions and to breathe, I focused on relaxing every muscle in my body from forehead to little toe nail. He was born without fuss, pain relief or tears in a few hours. “Hi Mama, did you get it?” Let go, have faith, trust and breathe.

About the Curator: Erin Murray
Erin, a Mother of 1 little man and wife to 1 big man has learnt much about herself in the past few years. After moving from the city to the bush (near the Ocean), there weren’t as many distractions as she had become accustomed to, in a smaller community she lost her anonymity and slowly began to become aware of herself, her feelings, the life she had created for herself and her relationships with others. Seeking change from the feelings and behaviors which had become her normal, she sought out methods to do just that. Slowly at first, then a bit more and a bit more she is becoming aware of what she actually wants for herself and has begun removing the things that aren’t that, inside and out. Learning about faith (not religionJ), fun and how to be gentle with herself and others along the way.
