If you have been trying to get pregnant for a while and live in a place remotely woo-woo, you may have come across the term or idea of Spirit Babies. Essentially, a spirit baby is the soul of your baby-to-be. Just like you have a soul, so does your baby. It is our energetic essence that exists prior to and after life.
You may have felt the essence of a loved one who has passed. Connecting with a spirit baby is very similar. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, not to worry, there is an exercise at the bottom of this article to walk you through it step by step.*
Just know that you are intuitive. All of us are. Some people are more intuitive than others. It is a skill that can be developed through practice.
Intuitive communication and information can come through in a myriad of ways just like the physical senses – seeing, hearing, knowing, or feeling. For me, it is a bodily sensation as well as a deep knowing. With clients specifically, information comes into my brain and repeats until I acknowledge or convey the message. It could be literal words or an image or series of images.
Intuitive information can also come through outside sources like a song on the radio or an article in your feed. This information is usually accompanied by a deep knowing in the core of your being rather than in the mind.
And so, spirit babies are souls that are ready to be conceived and born. As described by Walter Makichen, the author of Spirit Babies: How to Communicate with the Child You’re Meant to Have, their presence “fills the room with a joyous animated energy that reminded me of children at play.”
This has been my experience with spirit babies too, whether they are in their momma’s womb or still waiting to be conceived. Each one is highly animated and bursting at the seams with joy to be born. One even timed the blaring of “I want you back” by the Jackson 5 from a car stereo while in session with his mom-to-be. “Oh, baby, give me one more chance… to show you that I love you.”
During my own fertility journey a number of years ago, a spirit baby talked to me, completely out of the blue. I was walking to work and a pregnant woman passed me and the soul of her baby spoke up so excited that I could hear it. This is when I learned that I had a gift to communicate with little ones coming into the world.
In prepping for this article, there was some specific information the spirit babies want you to know. Each one picks their parents very specifically and strategically. When fertility issues occur, it can mean their parents-to-be require additional experiences as a non-parent. Or it can mean the timing is not yet correct for their birth in terms of what their soul needs to accomplish during their life.
Much of the work I do with clients is around releasing energetic blocks from their energetic system—the chakras and auric field. This releases stress from the cells and creates the space for something new to happen. The energetic system can also hold trauma from past lives that needs to be resolved and released prior to conception.
In future articles, I will be exploring spirit babies in-depth in relation to fertility, miscarriage, and pregnancy.
* Exercise to Connect with Your Spirit Baby
Tapping into the unbridled enthusiasm of your spirit baby is a great way to quell the stress of poking and prodding and tests.
Sit quietly, take a series of deep breaths, and focus in on your heart center. Inhale love into the around your heart and exhale any stress or anxiety. Feel the stress and anxiety release from your cells. Continue to focus on your breath, allowing the space for your spirit baby to come forth. You may ‘see’ a bubble of light (think Glinda, the good witch form the Wizard of Oz) – it may be green or yellow or white. You may ‘hear’ a voice talking to you from your heart chakra. You may ‘feel’ a presence. Focus on the joyfulness. And feel, hear, or see what your spirit baby has to say.
