Brief Summary: 

This Sharing Space article discusses the use of empty chair meditation in identifying and releasing traumatic prenatal memories.


Practicing daily meditation, which I studied at Berkeley Psychic Institute (BPI), intensified my state of consciousness and triggered my recollection of some of my prenatal memories. I help facilitate safer births as a trained Spiritual Midwife, by practicing spiritual healing and daily empty chair meditation with my clients. These are very useful tools, not only for pregnant women and family members, but also for people of any age who have emotional difficulties; both can promote releasing stress and can allow better communication with others.
