Wow! Forrest is seven months old. What a miracle. As someone who's battled many crises
(tsunami, anyone?), I am joyfully overwhelmed each morning when I see my son. I thank Heaven, even when changing his nappy. The joke is, 'before enlightenment, wipe baby's butt - after enlightenment, wipe baby's butt!' At 35, I feel like I've finally achieved my potential...
Here are 7 Discoveries About Babies That Blew My Brain
1) They're fully awake in the womb. Until last year, I thought babies were like vegetables. I had this idea I could get away with bad behaviour until they went to school. Not so! Forrest has been teaching me since before he was even conceived.
My first vision of him was in a meditation. He told me I was running late. During pregnancy, I'd get 'downloads' from him regarding what to eat (home-grown sprouts, sausages and chocolate were the clear favourites) and where to give birth (we moved house to get into the RBWH Birth Centre when I was six weeks' pregnant).
He also sent reassurance such as 11:11, bird signs and dreams. When I was stressing about money, he vibed 'my people will take care of that'. Within days, we received an avalanche of donated clothes, furniture, toys etc. In the end we just bought nappies and socks. Thank goodness for the kindness of family and friends.
My tip: Before and after conceiving, talk to your baby - they can hear you even if you whisper in your head. If you don't believe me, try talking to a baby in the womb and see what happens - Forrest used to respond to my questions with a roll or kick. They're smarter than we realise.
2) They know their names before we do. All Souls, even babies, have a team of Spirit Guides who help them choose their parents, lifepath and other variables each incarnation. It was easy to name Forrest - the day we thought about his name (it was going to be Forest or Forrest), we turned on the TV and it was the opening scene of Forrest Gump. Then my partner met a guy called Forrest and I had an email from A. Forrest. Three signs were enough.
As a numerologist, I waited until Forrest was born to finalise his name, because I wanted to make sure I filled any gaps in his date of birth chart. While breastfeeding, he 'told' me his middle name was 'Galahad'. When I Googled it, I saw it was the name of the knight who found the Holy Grail. It gave Forrest a 99/18/9 Destiny name, matching his 18/9 lifepath. Find your lifepath.
Despite this, I still hesitated - I know that double numbers (like 11, 22, 33) bring extra responsibility. But Forrest's Spirit was adamant.
My tip: Make peace with your name - even if you don't like it (I used to hate Sarah), it gave you the fate you needed as a child. Some Souls choose an awkward birth name on purpose - it forces them to stand up for themselves, and/ or take their power back by changing it later. When naming your child, look for coincidences - my sister kept seeing Phoenixes when she was pregnant, hence my nephew's name. The right name will keep coming back into your mind and 'stick' to the child like glue.
3) They use pregnancy to heal and activate the whole family.
The first time I told Kris I wanted a baby, he threw up and was sick for three days. The second time I told him, he threw up and was sick for a day. Let's just say it took a year before we were both on the same page! Fortunately, having read Kris's palm when we met (see the video at the bottom of this page), I knew he was a loyal person, who would take fatherhood extremely seriously.
I did hundreds of hours' of healing on myself before Forrest was born. Since I was a child, I've been afraid of dying in birth (I have a past life scar on my leg). So I prepared more than most for labour. I not only attended prenatal yoga and Active Birth classes (with Yogababy Brisbane), I practiced meditation, bellydancing, visualisation and did past life regressions. Even when Forrest was 99% out, I had a panic, but luckily I had great midwives and Kris.
At one stage, someone suggested I have an abortion if I wasn't serious about motherhood. I got angry eczema after that, which took months to clear - I ended up healing my own birth trauma as a result. I also had to go to court while pregnant, to fight for some money we were owed (funnily, the case concluded by 11.11)
My tip: Everything that happens just before and during pregnancy is designed to heal you. It may seem like unwanted change or problems, but Spirit is getting you ready for the child or children you are about to meet. Don't fight your evolution - focus on healing any wounding and ask for all the help you need. This is good practice for when you are a parent.
4) The way you treat babies is how you treat all your ideas. As an entrepreneur, I'm used to surprising people with my zany life choices. I eat pancakes for lunch. I read minds. My baby gets crystal healings. And so on. Must be an Aquarian thing.
As a scientist who became a psychic, I like dealing with sceptics. This experience has been invaluable for parenting - I think for myself and don't believe the media. I also trust my intuition 150%. So it makes me sad when I see parents doubting themselves, telling their kids to shut up, or trying to please others. I know they must be doing the same thing to their 'inner child' and heart's desires.
My tip: You are a precious jewel of the Universe - no one like you will ever exist again. Same goes with your babies. Let them know everyday that they are immortal beings, who come from love and can never truly die. Encourage them to take risks - praise their efforts, and let them see you laugh at yourself. And hug and kiss them lots - it creates neural pathways for commitment later on.
5) Babies aren't mean to sleep - they're meant to wake you up!
I never know how to answer the query 'Is Forrest a good sleeper?' I'd prefer to be asked, 'Is he healthy? How are you finding motherhood?' That's a true conversation starter.
Admittedly, The first few weeks after Forrest was born, ALL I thought about was getting eight hours' sleep (so far it's happened, twice!)
After doing some research, I've realised that it's a myth that we need uninterrupted sleep - in ancient times, people often woke at night to work. When we keep looking at the clock, we're living in our heads. Instead of counting hours, focus on enjoying the sleep you do get (meditation, diet and exercise can help to de-stress).
Fortunately, my midwives showed me how to breastfeed lying down, so I've always napped with Forrest. This has been lifesaving, as one of my greatest fears about parenting was being too tired to do a good job. These days I still dream of a sleep-in, but I'm learning to enjoy Forrest as he comes. After all, he could be my only child, and he's such a cute alarm clock.
My tip: Babies pick up on our vibration. When I'm calm, Forrest is easy to handle. When I'm worried, he starts fussing for no apparent reason. Babies have an energetic cord to their mother (and vice versa) for most of their early life. So if your baby seems highly-strung, nourish yourself first. Maybe they need you to slow down. Focus on your breathing - a quick reset is to breath in for four counts, hold for two, breath out for four counts, hold for two. You can't breathe and worry at the same time - test it and see.
6) Children and parents have joint destinies, which shows up in their numerology. I've read for thousands of parents, mainly Baby Boomers. It's clear that the women who keep part of their identity are happier than those who give up everything.
Having done numerous family readings, it's incredible how a baby's numerology matches their parents destiny. I truly believe some children choose their parents years in advance. For example, Forrest will mature at 18 years old (his lifepath age), which coincides with my peak at 53 years old (a major cycle change).
At the highest level, maybe our kids know what is going to happen to them, including house moves, health issues and parental breakups? We've often had past lives with them - perhaps they were our parents, or even our partners.
Kris and Forrest are inseparable - as you can see in the video below. It's been that way since the day Forrest was born. They're definitely Soulmates.
My tip: Health comes from balance. People become unwell when they give too much time/ energy/ money/ headspace to others. Your baby is a Soul who has lived many lives - maybe even more than you. So don't feel bad about leaving them alone at times, while you pursue your career/ hobbies/ travel etc. They need space too, to help and heal others in the world.
7) The babies coming through now are VERY different to us. I can't stress how brave these new Souls are. They are coming in at a critical turning point (2016 is a Universal 9 Year of Conclusions) to an Earth with a stressed ecosystem and population. In some ways, they're like twister chasers - happy to be in the thick of the action.
Consider this summary of numerology. Those born in:
-the 1950's have the 1-5-9 of Leadership in their date of birth grid - they are survivors with the '5' for the Throat Chakra and discipline.
-the 1960's have the '6' for an active Third Eye Chakra and inner/ outer vision. Dreamers who wanted a beautiful life.
-the 1970's have the '7' for a developed Crown Chakra and spiritual ideas/ curiosity. Sceptics and prophets.
-the 1980's have the '8' for the Karmic Pattern/ God Chakra and personal power. Material girls and boys.
-the 1990's have '9s' for the Spiritual Blueprint Chakra and deep thought/ humanitarian action. Futurists.
In comparison, children born from 2000 onwards have many '0's for sensitivity, and less numbers in their grids. They have strong likes and dislikes because they are 'specialists' here to fill gaps in the population. It's essential they have many friends and helpers (why have two parents when you can have a dozen aunties?) and support to finish tasks. They are hands-on, not rote-learners.
Think of them as 'mortar' bringing people together for a cause, whereas those who came before are the 'bricks' who shaped society. Many babies coming in have karmic lifepaths and will know their purpose by their teens - read more on karmic numbers.
My tip: What worked for you may not work for your children and grandchildren. The school of hard knocks could knock them out. Not only do they have different lifepaths, the world is radically different. There is more pressure on kids to perform, they have less down-time, more exposure to technology, and even the food has changed (hence the rise in intolerances and allergies).
You can't raise a fern the way you grow an oak tree. Be open to learning new forms of healing to help these Souls thrive. They are definitely psychic*, and need our protection. I'm keen to work with more of them soon - they're so inspiring.
*True Story: In April, I was seeing 111, 333, 444, so I knew my Guides wanted to chat. While nursing Forrest, I felt inspired to Google Kauai in Hawaii and found a kayak tour.
Check out the 2nd review! 'Forrest, our guide kept us entertained and educated the entire trip.' It was only posted 24 hours prior and was the first link I clicked. No coincidence. Forrest is truly my teacher. He's always sending messages of hope.
I hope you've enjoyed these
ideas on babies, parenting and numerology. Until next time, enjoy the adventure of love and life!
