Baby’s Spirit : How Does A Soul Come to Earth? Part 1

May 23, 2012

Image by Kristina Swarner

I guess for me – it really all started back in 2000 when I read the book The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche.  Although I’d been both religious and spiritual all my life, up until that point I had never really given much thought to the process of crossing from this world into the next.  The book opened my eyes to the idea that there was steps to this process of dying.   Much later when my husband and I started our family, I came back to this idea of birth and death being gateways and I became curious about what exactly is the process for a new soul to come to Earth.

The subject fascinates me and over the past 5 years I done as much reading as I can about how exactly a new spirit arrives in their human form.   I’ve asked priests, midwives, spiritual teachers and yoga gurus and just about anyone else to will talk to me about how this process might occur, and though their answers might vary there are some common themes.   One of the themes that is repeated over and over is the idea that there is some greater wisdom going on here which pairs a certain baby to a certain set of parents or parent.   Some traditions hold that it is God that chooses their baby from them while other traditions tend to see it as the baby’s choice, and still others believe that there is a collaboration between God and the baby’s soul and that they choose the parents together.   Sometimes it appears that these individuals have something to experience together.   Perhaps the baby wishes to be born into a family that rides horses because that is the primary experience that this soul is looking for in this life.  Perhaps there is a spiritual connection between this baby’s soul and parents.  It could be a connection that was formed in heaven before either came to earth, or it could be a connection based on a previous lifetime that was shared together.

Most of the writing about this process, comes from the belief that souls come to Earth more than once.  I know that as I’ve grown and changed, my own beliefs have moved in this direction.  For those of you who hold different beliefs, I’m not at all asking to change, but rather I invite to come with me as explore the ideas that are currently circulating on our planet about how a soul comes to Earth.

So once a soul is set on a path for earthly incarnation, then the first step to the process is deciding on or matching with a parent or set of parents.  This process really depends on the soul’s purpose.   For example,  if two souls had been together before perhaps as a mother and daughter set, then they might wish to relive that experience again or perhaps relive it in reverse, so the daughter becomes the mother in the new lifetime.   Sometimes the soul needs or wishes to incarnate in a particular area or city and the choice will be less specific to the individual parent.  As diverse as people are, so are their souls and what they wish to experience/create in their lifetime.

Once this connection to a potential parent is made, then the soul creates a connection to that person.  This connection is visible to those who are sensitive enough to see it.  Certain clairvoyants can actually see a baby’s spirit in their potential parents’ aura, and can even communicate with that spirit baby.   There are many many stories out there written by such people who can see and communicate with these spirit babies.  Walter Makichen’s wonderful book entitled Spirit Babies: How to Communicate with the Child You’re Meant to Have is a collection of such stories and techniques based on a thirty year clairvoyant practice of connecting parents with their unborn children.

When one member in a couple feels more drawn to have a child then the other, this is sometimes because the spirit baby has already appeared in that person’s aura and so subconsciously the person picks up on that and wishes for a child.  Sometimes two spirit babies will show together in an aura because they wish to incarnate into the same family.  Sometimes the spirit baby has definite idea of being either a girl or boy, and sometimes they don’t care and will appear as either sex dependent on what’s available.  Some babies are so attached to a particular person that they will wait lifetimes to be their child.  Others will bounce around from one aura to another simply looking for an opportunity to come to Earth.  So there is a lot going on even before conception.

Conception though, is held to be extremely important in all religious traditions.  This appears to be the moment when a deep biological and spiritual connection is made between the soul and the physical seed that will grow into a beautifully formed new human being.

Some traditions hold that there are helpers along the way to this process of becoming human.  The Jewish story of the Angel of Conception named Lailah is a wonderful example of this.  In this midrash, Lailah brings the soul and the human seed (the egg and sperm) together inside the womb.

“In doing so, Lailah serves as a midwife of souls. While the infant grows in the womb, Lailah places a lighted candle at the head of the unborn infant, so he or she can see from one end of the world to the other. So too does the angel teach the unborn child the entire Torah, as well as the history of his or her soul. Then, when the time comes for the child to be born, the angel extinguishes the light in the womb and brings forth the child into the world. And the instant the child emerges, the angel lightly strikes its finger to the child’s lip, as if to say “Shh,” and this causes the child to forget everything learned in the womb. Still, the story implies, that knowledge is present, merely forgotten, much like the Jungian concept of the collective unconscious.  This myth also explains the origin of the mysterious indentation every person has on their upper lip. The myth goes on to say that Lailah watches over the child all of his days, serving as a guardian angel. And when the time comes for a person to take leave of this world, Lailah leads him from this world to the next. “

The children’s story Before You Were Born by Howard Schwartz is a beautiful retelling to this piece of Jewish spirituality.   As this story of Lailah suggests there is much going on for the baby spiritually while they are developing physically inside the uterus.  Part 2 of this blog entry will explore different ideas about what happens for a baby’s soul during pregnancy.   I hope you will stay tuned…

    I love this idea, I believe that we choose our parents before we get here and love to hear other stories about it as well. I found it very interesting when I was first pregnant with my oldest, before I even knew I was pregnant for sure yet, I had a dream that felt very real, there was a teenage girl and boy sitting across from me at the table in my kitchen, the girl asked me which one I wanted to come first, and I could tell she was getting a kick out of suprising me with such a question, I just told her what ever they thought was best. The girl was very strong bright energy and the boy was a little harder to pick up so I was sure I was having a girl. I ended up having a boy and then a girl two years later! :)

      Alanna – you are definitely not the only one with such a story. Over the years, many women have told me stories about dreams that they had which featured what they believe was their future child. Of course there is no way to definitely prove it, yet these women feel that the dream was true for them. One really interesting story, that I got from a fellow belly dancer, was about a dream she had following a period in her life where she was really questioning why she had been born to alcoholic parents. In her dream, she was “on the other side” and talking with what she describes as fellow spirits. They were having a discussion about the potential parents and asking her in she was really sure about incarnating with them. In the dream she heard herself say yes and explained the reasons why. When she woke up she felt more peaceful that she had in years. Whether or not that is a true experience, the dream itself allowed her to understand her parents better and make peace with her past and that is a gift. As I said, the more I look into in, the more I feel that there is something large going on that what we can see with our limited perspective.

    My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a year now and it is not an easy journey for us. My doctor has given me clomid (a fertility drug) to start in a few days to help us conceive. Last night my husband and I went to a movie for our anniversary and I went into the bathroom and as I was washing my hands, a little girl about 6 yrs. old in a ballerina outfit (which was strange) appeared and said to me “are you having a baby”? and I was kind of shocked and replied to her that I wasn’t and walked out. When I walked out my husband was waiting for me by the door the whole time and there was no other adult there waiting for the little girl. I had told my husband and asked if he had seen a little girl go in and he said he didn’t see anyone. I know I am not pregnant as of today, but is it possible this was a sign for the near future that we will conceive a child, maybe even this little girl?I would appreciate some feedback :)…thanks

      Hi Leann,
      That’s an incredible story. It’s hard to know for sure what it means… but as I mentioned in this post, all my research has lead me to believe that there is more going on that meets the eye as first glance. One woman that I spoke with really felt that during her pregnancy her unborn child communicated with her through the comments of people around – sometimes strangers. So if it could happen to someone while pregnant… seems to me that it could happen before pregnancy as well. My advice would be to focus on being available to motherhood and available to shelter a new life within you. Perhaps even spending a few moments each day focusing with your eyes closed on that feeling of open availability. It’s a good heart and mind space to be in as you go through this fertility journey.

        Hiya,
        Me and my partner have both been thinking about having a baby at the same time, hes working away so hes nowhere near me, yet we are both at other sides of the world thinking about having a baby, and wanting it at the same time, I said i heard a spirit of a baby chooses its parents before birth and thought that, our baby might be coming in our auras, we both keep thinking the same stuff at the same time, ive never beeen like this before, and didnt feel strange asking him if hed been thinking about having a baby a lot lately because i had too, and when did he want one and we both said next year although i do get a feeling it may be sooner than that, do you think both parents can feel the baby coming before conception? xxxxx

      • August 3, 2012 7:59 am

        Hi Hazel,
        From the people that I’ve talked to, that certainly seems to be the case. Sometimes the spirit can show up in both auras if that spirit is attached to both of you. My suggestion is that you find a little bit of quiet time and just talk to this little one that you and your hubby seem to be feeling. I think time passes differently on the other side, so what might seem like a long time for you (a year) might be the blink of an eye for this baby.
        All the best,
        Marie

    I am 31 years old and have an 8 month old son. He was a very unplanned pregnancy to say the least.. Strangely, shortly before I became pregnant, I felt a presence around me .. Like something “lurking”.. And then I had a feeling like I’d become pregnant. I remember getting ready to go out with friends and looking in the mirror thinking of being pregnant soon wven though I wasnt even sexually active at the time. Shortly after that I have one night with a man I’ve known a little while but not in a relationship with and become pregnant. As soon as I find out I had a strong feeling it was going to be a boy and I could even see my life with him. One thing I couldn’t see was walking into a clinic.. Even though how logical that decision was (and I am a very logical person but also very spiritual) fast foward to today and I have a beautiful, amazing, charismatic little boy that I know was meant to be mine. I know I’m the one that will help him meet his highest potential to be whatever it is he is suppose to be. I will guide him every step of the way and learn him so that I can help him understand himself. His father is the picture by the way .. A good dad and wouldn’t change it for the world. Souls do choose each life to experience what they choose :)

    I always wanted to have a girl. I thought that it would fine if I had a boy instead, but there was a deep deisre within me to have a girl. About 4 months before I became pregnant, I had the most vivid and amazing dream that I have ever had. I dreamt that I gave birth to a boy. He was beautiful and the joy I felt was incredible. When I found out I was pregnant, I immediately told my husband that it was a boy. And I claimed this to everyone throughout my pregnacy and told them of my dream. At my 20 week ultrasound we found out we were having a BOY!. I was so excited. I always thought that it was Gods way of reassuring me that we were having a boy and I would be fine with it. I love my sweet boy and wouldn’t trade him for anything in the world. This dream made my pregnancy so special to me.

    I can’t help but be hopeful after reading this article. I lost my 2 year old son last year March and I still cant accept it and I know I never will. Lately, I have been having vivid dreams about him. I really hope that when I’m emotionally ready for another child, he will be my son again.

    When my son was 3 years old he told me (unsolicited) that he chose me to be his mother. He said he was with other children where he was prior to being born and that he was shown women to choose from and he said he picked me…I asked him why he picked me and he said “you were the prettiest one”. I am not gorgeous lol but apparently at the time my son thought so..He’s 21 now and I ask him about it and of course he doesn’t remember. It is interesting to note that he also had an imaginary friend about the same time. He had quite a story behind his friend “Sari” including that he was a little boy that died in a fire. I wish I had written down some of these talks we had at the time…He doesn’t remember any of it.

    I find all of this very fascinating. My husband and I lost out first child in 2006, just shy of 16 weeks. a little boy, he was so tiny and perfect. After that I just KNEW I needed to have another baby. I also knew somehow that the next baby would be a girl. I got pregnant 6 months later with our daughter. When she was about 2-3 I was giving her a bath and out of the blue she told me “Mommy I used to be in your tummy” I said “Yes you were!”. She said “No before that time.” I was confused so I asked her what she meant. She looked at me like I was crazy for not knowing then she said “First I was a boy! But I didn’t want to be a boy, so I came back as a girl!” I was just shocked to hear her say this. I find it funny that I knew I was going to have a girl next and she said she wanted to be a girl. I also joke that she used to be my mother in a past life because she is always trying to take care of me. I tell her it is my job to take care of her right now lol.

    Is there a way to remember dream clearly? How can we ask a passed away big child to come back to us? I could feel everything before the nightmare of losing my child actually happened, but why now I can’t know if my child will choose me & my husband again as parents.

      Hi Eve,

      My heart is sore for your loss. I don’t think there are any general answers to your questions. It would depend on each soul and what their purpose for coming into the world was. However it does appear that the same souls interact over and over again through different lifetimes. There are many books written on that subject. I think that in order to explore details pertaining to your child, you would need to consult with someone trained to communicate with spirit babies. Only your child would know that answer to your question. Blessings, Marie

    Hello everyone! My name is Liz I am 23 years of age.I have an amazing boyfriend Daniel, my soulmate, my best friend and the love of my life. He is 30. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Nursing 1st year, Dan has started this semester to become a teacher.
    I also work in aged care, have been for 4 and a half years, I have meet some oldies that have also changed my life. :).

    I have very vivid dreams, past life dreams, and future dreams. I have dreamt of Dan and I our wedding day. I have also dreamt of giving birth 3 times, to three seperate children. I saw what each baby looked like. I see the first ones name, well more like 6-12months ago, over a long period. Lately I feel two spirit babies on my right shoulder, and one on my left shoulder. I am not sure what this means :).

    Dan and I are very spiritual people, we believe in God, and we are also very open minded. Dan loves babies and kids alot, and I am looking forward to one day giving birth, and been the best mother, mum and friend I can be for our babies. Including providing a nurturing home and family life together. Teaching them things, and letting them be free, to be themself, support them. And bring them up as good, balanced, genuine, honest little people. Living life to the best they can, as they are.

    I am a foster child, I was fostered out when I was 2weeks of age, to one family which looked after me well. I felt my birth mother had abandoned me and left me out of the family. I want to reverse this all, and give all my love to Dan and our three little ones. My friend in class, stated I would be waitng another 5 years to have the first one. We do not mind, we can finish uni and travel. I just always dream, and feel them around me, and Dan lol.

    I also want to become a midwife one day, and help mothers, babies and Dads come together and teach them how to look after their bundle of joy. I love it! :)

    Thankyou for listening! From Lizzy <3 X X X

    My ex and I went through a very troubling time, a little over 4 years now he has had a dream about a little baby girl…in each dream that she appears she is a little older. She tells him things very accurate about my feelings that I haven’t even shared with him. Each dream she is older and each dream that she says I am pregnant is very accurate. Her name is promise. She has made it known since the begining this is her name. My ex and I have been seperated for 3 years now. Promise still visits his dreams randomly and reassures him. Recently i received another email from him

    Before our fourth child was born, promise told him I was pregnant before I even knew. He was adamant to take a test. She told him that he had to appologize to me before it was to late because she was running out of time.

    His email. It was like some one was in my ear talking to me this time. I keep telling my self to wake up but I could not wake up. This whole dream took place with me in my bed. I never seen u pregnant in my dream. Promise is sitting next to me on my bed telling me it is her time to come and be with her mother. She say’s I thought u was going to be my dad but I know she is suppose to be my mom. i asked, Well ok why r u telling me this for. I know she is not pregnant with my kid. She said Because u r the only one i can talk to. And she listens to u. I said, Hahahah ok. She said, And for so long i thought u were going to be my dad. when i do come in to this world and I am old enough to know you, you will be there to see me right? I told her I do not know about that. she asked Y. I replied because your mom and the guy u r going to be call your dad don’t like me that much and they don’t want me at there house. She told me, Well I am going to be the one that is going to change that. Then I woke up with a tear running down my eye. But if u r and she is a girl u have to name her promise.

    What does this all mean? why does she keep coming into his dreams? Why is she connected to me as her mother? Is this real? Very confused, but intrigued, BTW i got fixed after my fourth child.

      September 11, 2013 4:30 am

      I got cut off… Anyways, I met her soul in a dream. She was dying and kept on changing form, but I felt a deep love and connection to this soul, none that I’ve ever had to either of my parents. It was more than just a normal dream. i woke up crying with a deep sorrow in my heart that I had finally met here and she was now gone; my husband consoled me for a while. I have a very poor relationship with both of my parents and had an unhappy and volatile childhood. Is it possible that my soul accidentally latched onto the wrong mother? Have you ever come across anything similar to this in your research? Thank you.

      • September 13, 2013 6:49 am

        Although I am sorry to hear about the poor relationship that you experienced with your actual parents, I would have to answer that from my research there always seems to be a reason for a soul to incarnate. I remember one story where a young women went to see a intuitive because she was pregnant and felt that she should give the baby up for adoption but she was also feeling pressure for those around her to keep the baby. So the intuitive spoke to the spirit baby. The spirit baby replied that she wanted to be born and grow up in a particular city with a particular couple, but that couple wasn’t able to have children physically, so the soul found another passage. Hence why the young woman was experience a need to give the baby up. Incidentally the adoptive parents that the soul wanted were the ones slated to receive the baby. So the story had a good ending (you can read about it in the book Spirit Babies), but that does lead me to wonder – what would have happened if that young woman had kept the baby. The soul’s plan who have been prevented. So personally I do believe that can happen as well. The soul knows what they are doing when they choose to incarnate on earth, but they can’t control everything. For example, what if the body they have chosen doesn’t work, a baby born without lungs, then they may chose to stick around and try again or they could choose to move on. So I guess my answer is that there is likely lots going on in every situation that we are not on Earth in a position to fully understand.

        If possible that the soul that you met has been your mother before. Who knows… maybe even many times.

        Likely talking with an intuitive who you trust who probably help you get clearer answers.

        All the best,
        Marie

    This topic does facinate me. My husband and I had been trying for a baby for quite a few years when finally we became pregnant with identical twin boys after our first IVF cycle. Our boys were born early and we lost one of them at two days old. We were utterly devastated, yet I had such a strong longing for another child. I don’t know if this was because I was trying to fill the void or partly because I didn’t want our surviving twin to be an only child. I’d heard that if one loses a child, they should ask the spirit baby to come back to them. I wasn’t sure if I truly believed this but did so anyway in the hope that just maybe my baby boy would come back to earth. Well within weeks I was pregnant again, naturally! I now have two beautiful little boys, born 16 months apart. I’ll always wonder whether this was purely coincidence, or did the little boy we lost choose to come back to us. One thing I do know is that my boys have such an incredible connection. It’s so wonderful to see.

    This is amazing. My daughter and I visited a medium last weekend who was so specific giving names and things that no one could know right down to what my daughter called her grandfather which was extremely out of the ordinary, so we knew he was for real. But when we first sat down he told us that my daughter is a very old soul and that she chose me to be her mother. And that I was an old soul but not as old as her. I had never even heard of that before and looking at our relationship which is so strong on so many levels it makes complete sense. It may sound crazy but I feel like at some point it was the other way around and she was my mother, it just feels like we have done this together prior. I am now enthralled with what you have stated and what I am finding in researching this topic. This has been such a life changing experience.

      In 2005 I was ‘told’ (I’m a medium) I would have a baby girl, and was asked to give her a certain name – that’s what she wanted to be called. A couple years went by and I could see her; her hair color, eye color, body type, etc….jump ahead a couple more years and I saw her life at different phases: infant, childhood, adult all of what’s to come…little scenes of life. Since 2012, we’ve started having conversations about her needs/wants and what I can do to help her achieve them, and she is helping me be prepared for her. The communication is VERY loving and supportive. I’ve created space/time for her in my life and I’ve written letters every so often to give her later and documented all the little validations of her impending arrival. As someone who believes in sewing good Karmic seeds, I make my charitable contributions in her name. It’s been a long journey thus far but with her love/support I wait patiently. In the past year others who are intuitive can feel her energy around me and have asked me about it. I just smile and say, “Yeh, that’s my girl…she’s on her way” :)

    I have a very different experience… My twin flame and I got together last year, it created huge turbulence and he wasn t able to break free from his former life and relationship attachments in order to start living the life he wished for.
    He took his life this summer.
    Also, it seems he had precognition of the events that happened as he was doing some healing work on my womb from the outside, and seemed to prepare both me and all the surroundings for actually coming back as my baby!
    He has passed all the transitions necessary to the light, his soul is intact.
    And he encourages me to do a long distance travel which I am about to do in the next couple of weeks. But I feel overwhelmed to say the least and am wondering if you have any advice for me.

      Wow Elisabet, that is quite intense to read about, and I imagine living it is a whole another story. I would suggest that you set your intention to find people to guide you in this journey. If you seriously just focus for 2 minutes with eyes close on that intention – the universe, providence, God or however you define will place the right people in your path.

    I had my first child at 16. I also had a dream that my girlfriend, (the mother) was pregnant, and that her mother, would call my house at 6 am, to announce the pregnancy. At exactly six the call came. I stated to my girlfriend, that our child she would be born a girl, with a hole in her ear, and that she would be very smart. During that time there was no ultra sound to tell about the gender. My daughter was born with a hole in the ear and she would have graduated from high school at 14 years old. Her first grade class tracked her, from elementary school to graduation, and gave her money for college, because she made honors all through school. Yes, I am sure that children, can connect with parents, before birth. I have often felt as if I have been on Earth before.

    Following a bad divorce and abuse, I became pregnant a few months ago and went to a clinic to take care of things like my friends suggested. Afterward I knew that I had done something out of sync with the universe – the void left within me woke me in the night and the world seemed dimmed to me. It was the worst mistake and I regret the pain I caused us both every day.
    I’ve always been spiritual, but lately that sense has been more dulled, until a few nights ago. I was half asleep when I saw a strange name on what looked like a headstone in my dream. It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen and as I repeated the name to myself in my dream state, I thought how unusual it was – like something from Old English or Latin. Then, suddenly, something brushed against my chest – I jumped out of bed and searched for a bug or whatever had so firmly pressed against me. I found nothing, but laid there trying to fully recall the name.
    Then yesterday I was talking to my boyfriend when I felt something brush against the top of my head and face – again I jumped and wondered what was touching me. Do souls have a true name of sorts? And can they come back? If I was pregnant now, could it be that same soul returning? These are new experiences for me and it scares me a little. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

      Hi Anna,

      Well I’m not a medium, I have spoken with mediums about this topic and yes most seem to agree that a soul can come back and “try again” with you. So that seems totally possible to me. Plus there are many stories of souls request a particular name. Of course there are many others souls for whom the name just doesn’t matter. It’s quite individual. And I have also heard stories of women who experienced the communicate with their spirit baby – physically – just like you.

      Hugs

    Hi Marie,

    I just found out this message of your blog as I was searching for some answers on the internet. It’s funny how I know that the internet hasn’t got all answers, but I’ve decided to google a little bit anyway. It was when I’ve found this message.
    I have got a 7 year old daughter and we have been trying to have a second child for some months now. Actually, I always wanted do have a second child, but we have been postponing it for some years as we had to have our life more stable.
    After 3 months of trying I got pregnant …. of twins. In the first ultrasound we saw that one twin wasn’t going to survive as it was much smaller than the other one. Neverthless the other fetus wasn’t as developed as we thought either. We decided to wait a week and I was supposed to get back in for an other appointment next week. But on Saturday I had a miscarriage. And I’m still in the process of seeing if the second baby comes out naturally until Friday.
    I started to read the book Spirit Babies by Walter Makichen some weeks ago, because I was always interested in such topics. Before I started reading the book, and even before I got pregnant, I used to talk to my future child and I also felt him / her with me …. or I just thought I would. But I also felt a connection when I talked to him / her and reassured him / her that I would try to be the best mother possible and that I would always be here for him / her.
    But I never thought that this would happen to me. I’m still trying to understand the meaning of this miscarriage … because I think that there must be a higher reason.
    It always felt so important to have an other child … so important that I’m afraid to not feel complete if I’m not able to have an other child. Of course I would have to accept it at one point, if it wouldn’t be supposed to happen.
    On the other hand I feel very positive that the next time will be ok. And what I’m feeling today is that there was a reason of having twins …. because I already got used to the idea of having two babies. Maybe I am supposed to have other two children, but right now wasn’t the right time or I wasn’t supposed to have two at once.
    I was sad to read that Walter Makichen died some years ago. Do you know other “spirit babies claivoyant”?

    Best regards,

    Lu.

      Sorry for the great delay in responding to this message – I am happy to report that I do have someone for you to get in contact with if you wish to communicate with your spirit babies. I have never met this woman but I have been following her work and blog for over 5 years, and really enjoy her work and ideas. If you do decide to work with Kate, please repost here and let us know about your experience. I’m sure some of the other people who have commented on this post would be interested in how it goes.

    Hullo there Ms. Marie, when I was a little girl I dreamt about a lady and she is my mum, and I have a younger sibling I don’t know if it is a lad or a girl he/she just an infant I am the eldest in my dream, but in reality I am the youngest and I will not say that I’m adopted even if I’m not really look like my mum, but they said I look like my mum’s mother. Do you think I was born before?

      Hi Julie,

      Dreams are hard to interpret and I don’t want to tell you what to believe. That being said, yes I believe we live multiple lives and yes I believe you could remember some of these past lives during your dream state. If you are interested in past life regression, I would suggest that you seek out a talented hypnotherapist who could help you access these past lives through hypnosis. As with everything spiritual, there is no way to prove or disprove these beliefs and I think that ultimately it comes down to your unique life experiences and what resonates and feels true to you.

    For years my mom & Nana said that I would one day have a daughter. They just felt it and so did I. My mother even went to a very good medium that has been right in the past and was told we would have both genders with a big space in between. We had our first 8 yearsago. Now we are pregnant again and both my husband and I felt strongly in was a girl..we both had dreams. Then about a month ago I suddenly felt it was a boy. We just had an ultrasound a sure enough its a boy. My husband and I were heartbroken as we were so sure. I want to try again after this boy is born but he does not. I can’t help but wonder if the soul left? Can that happen? Why? I feel like I have been talking to this little girl for years but she left us :-(.

      Hi dear…

      Those type of questions are hard to answer as there could be so many possible explications. My suggestion is to go to a medium who you trust and ask – they might be able to give you some more specific answers. Good luck in your journey.

        Hi Marie,
        I lost my premature daughter when she was 17 days old. She was my angel. I was told that I am carrying a boy in my fourth month of pregnancy. During sixth month I had a dream in early morning hours that I gave birth to a premature daughter in 6month. The very next day I got the scan done again and It was a daughter. but I could not anticipate the other fact that time. I gave birth to a premature daughter just at the completion of 6th month who left me forever after 17 days. I was absolutely fine before that without any pregnancy related problem. I am going through intense grief and want my baby back as my child again. I want to know how I saw everything before and will my child come back to me again ?

        Hi Meenu
        I believe we know more than we realize – perhaps that explains the dream. I hope your child’s soul will return to you!

    I’ve read numerous articles about souls choosing there parents before they come to earth. The hall of records is a library. Where every living soul writes out what they want to achieve,before they come to earth.every thought, feeling and event in your life is compiled here.So yes you choose yor family before you come. Sometimes we’re not always born into nice families.But we are here to have an earthy experience,and they are.Including all human beings.Here to teach us something. I’m a single mother of 2 I had my first child at 17 never heard from the guy again. Meet a man a few years later and we had a daughter together. Thought we’d be together forever.He was never home and I felt like I brought my kids up on my own. I put up with this for 8 years before I said enoughs enough.My daughter is now 10 years old.This girl is the most caring loving wee person .She is my nurse when I don’t feel well, my mother.Always fussing that I eat properly.I take care of myself and always worried about my safety.I constantly wonder where she gets this from?.Regardless of how my life’s turned out I feel god has blessed me with some amazing children,I’ve been a solo mum now for 6 years. And there’s nothing in this world that gives me so much joy.When I’ve had a bad day or feeling down. Theres no one else that can Make me feel better.I’ve always belived nothings a confidence. If god blessed you with 8 children your suppose to have 8 children. Gods sent down his angels to look after me.

    Reblogged this on My Spiritual Journey.

    Great post and stories in the comments! I too know that I picked my parents. I remember it clear as day. I was 6 years old and standing with my mom in the garden outside of my childhood home when I told her I was happy that I chose her to be my mother, very matter-of-factly and happily. I remember her asking me questions about how I had known this, as she seemed happy, but taken aback. I told her I just knew. It was not long after this that my childhood took a turn, my parents separated and divorced and things became very hard for us. I quickly became a parent to both of my parents, who I believe had me too young, as they were not really prepared for marriage or parenthood. I am 32 now and came to the realization within the past few years that I chose them more so so that I could help them, rather than the reverse and I believe this to be all part of the master plan. They too have acknowledged this, and our relationships are better now because of it. Fortunately, since becoming an adult I have become a very successful and happy person- even through the dark times of my childhood and adolescence I have been resilient and it has all payed off. I met the love of my life 7 years ago and we’re celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary next week. We have been trying for just about a year and a half now to get pregnant with our first child and with no success. We recently began seeing doctors but don’t have many answers yet. About 6 months ago I was in a state between being awake and asleep when I heard a voice (not my own) tell me “I’m sorry, not yet” and called me by name. I know in my heart I am supposed to have children, and I believe it will be 2 children, a girl and a boy. I have even been told this by psychics and mediums. Yet I currently feel very sad about how long this process is taking. Today I feel very sad, and wondered why my husband and I have not been chosen to become parents yet, although we both know it will happen. We are a happy, healthy, stable (emotionally and financially) couple who are truly ready to become parents and it is breaking my heart that I feel I am in the dark to this process right now. I read above in someone else’s comment you left that you do fertility hypnosis- do you still do that and do you think it might help? Any suggestions or feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you :)

      Hi Jen,

      Yes I do hypnosis for fertility. It’s about reducing stress and tension, and allowing you to be in the parasympathic nervous system which is the part of the autonomic nervous system that is the most associated with fertility. We also do creative visualization to support what your body is doing; seeing happy healthy eggs, clear and open fallopian tubes, warm and pink healthy uterus with just the right amount of lining or cushioning to support an egg, and adjusting the hormones to just the right level to support conception. If women are open to it, we also do a bit of a spiritual invitation to this baby to come and make a home inside of you. If you are interested in doing that sort of work together, I would happily arrange for a skype session. :)

    I used to be able to feel my spirit babies around me but for the past year or so I haven’t been able to feel them at all and im so worried, I dont know if they’re getting ready to be born or if I’ve left it to late (im 35) and they’ve found someone else. Every time I think about it I get this over whelming feeling and I cant stop crying. Im so lost.
