Cosmic Spirit Babies
The story goes something like this…
“From the beginning of human time, ancient people knew that a child is not only the product of human sex; children are also the offspring of the earth's spirit, joined with astrological influences existing at conception and birth.
Earth was considered to be the home of children before they were born.
In Africa and Australia, for example, souls waiting to be born were believed to live under the earth or in rocks. Unborn children lived in fountains, springs, lakes, and streams, or in trees, bushes, and flowers, waiting to be born as human beings through the joined energies of the earth and moon. Festivals dedicated to the Goddess were the favourite times to conceive children. The moon’s monthly waxing was beneficial to an infant’s growth, and there were baptism rites where the baby was exposed to the moon, sun, and earth, incorporating the newborn within this celestial sphere, or “family.” (Great Cosmic Mother, by Monica Sjöö, 1987)
Moreover, the ancients presented an amusing theory: before coming to Earth, spirit babies exist in the Universe, swimming in a sea of Divine love weaving their destinies, observing, waiting, and checking things out before being born into a family, again.
So purely, so truly, they feel at home with the stars because they come with the knowledge that this is their true origin. They are here to change long-accepted things for the better, some on a family level, others on a global one.
Before beginning the return trip, one or both parents may feel their baby's soul through prophetic inner dialogue.
There is a sacred psychic link, a silver kind-of energetic thread that binds the spirit baby to
its parents. The archetype of Eros comes through and opens the
gateway for intuitive energy to be shared between them; hence Marcel
Duchamp’s “Eros, c’est la vie” Eros is life.
It seems that over these things, one has no control. They come of themselves, carving their commandments in our hearts and minds. Even our own minds may not be yet attuned to the intricacy of these connections.
Perhaps, gradually, through our guide’s eyes, our eyes might start zooming in. It happens in small illuminations, like a living memory that springs back to life.
And so, I would love to ask you: have you experienced pre-manifestational awareness where your spirit baby is preparing you for their arrival? And more importantly, does it feel like your spirit baby is leading you hand in hand to that mystical land of unconditional love, a place many call ‘home’?
