I was still in my first trimester when I woke in the morning to the most profound calmness and radiating love I have ever known in person. For lack of better language, I felt this calm and wonderful being in my room with me.
As I grew within my mother, a mother who often told me she wished she had gotten rid of me, the story goes that she dreamed of angels of pure light coming to her and blessing me. My mother was not one to make these stories up and the power of dreams continue to surpass my imagination. Do you believe in souls? I do and yet was completely unprepared for the wonder of feeling my unborn baby's ancient and immortal soul presence.
I have become a big believer in the hard to define; the realm of feeling true and real and yet being beyond our words. Do you think that your children's souls visit you before they come into this world? I do. I think these timeless and wondrous beings check in on their future moms and stay near us as their births approach. It is a great reminder to allow oursleves more stillness and love as we prepare to greet our babies. The angel presence before birth is a powerful reminder that there is more depth in this world than we often give it credit for.
