Have you ever had someone say something to you and for some reason their words got stuck in your mind?
After an event in Sydney which was full of like minded people some of us head nearby for dinner. One lady who I only met briefly before turned to speak to me at the restaurant and paused for a moment then said “Wow I can see your Spirit Baby”. I remember thinking what the… is a spirit baby? and before I could ask she was in deep conversation with someone else.
On retreat in Bali in 2016 I was deep in meditation when I had the sensation as though I had a pregnant belly and felt a presence with me. I moved my hands to my tummy and opened my eyes I knew I wasn’t pregnant but to felt so real at the time I had to check.
The strange thing about this was over the next year I had people reach out to me asking if I was pregnant and some even used the words “spirit baby”. As you will notice from the date on this message this was the year before I conceived:
While the thought was in the back of my mind I didn’t go out of my way to research spirit babies. Then scrolling on Instagram I saw a book: “Spirit Babies – How to communicate with the child you’re meant to have” by Walter Makichen. Without hesitation I searched for the book and bought myself a copy.
Before my book arrived I’d booked in a one off hour session with a lady from Hawaii for my business. Not long into the session she told me she was being interrupted and needed to pass on a message from my future baby. She asked if it was ok as she knew my session with her was for my business and this was more personal.
I agreed to listen and was told that the baby didn’t want to enter my womb as I was carrying around anger still from an experience from the past. This sentence triggered me firstly because I hadn’t shared any of this with the lady and secondly because I earlier that year been to the fertility clinic where although they said my husband and I were the healthiest couple they’d ever had yet there was a concern when one of the tests came back saying I could possibly miscarriage and before conceiving they’d recommended natural treatment to help me so we could avoid this from happening.
I’m a big believer that when physical symptoms show up in the body they are emotional ones manifested as they have not been dealt with. So as well as following the advice from the clinic I decided to do inner work as well. Although I’d done a lot of healing and forgiveness I realised I wasn’t angry at someone else for their actions rather I was angry at myself.
When the book arrived I read it cover to cover. My Dad used to tell me when I was mad at him that I choose them as my parents to which I replied ‘yeah right!’ According to this book it’s quite possible I did. Found it interesting that Walter the author had over 20 years experience with spirit babies and found they come into our lives before conception.
Obviously I have an open mind and this book was not only healing for me I began to recommend to clients who were having difficulty conceiving, experienced a miscarriage or were carrying around shame from abortion. It also speaks to the fears that can arise about becoming a parent.
The book includes a number of stories from clients he worked with over the years and also includes meditations, visualisations and mantras for you to use on your journey.
