The Powerful Bond between Mothers and their Children
In a few days I will travel to New York City to join with Big Ocean Women from around the world to represent Faith, Family, and Motherhood at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women Conference. While there I will be handing out my books to many people as well as speaking about the need to protect all people from violence, including unborn children.
Women have powerful intuitive and spiritual capacities. Women often feel and know that a child is waiting and wanting to come to them, and as willing mothers, they give that child the opportunity to be born.
For many years I have studied “our very personal journey of trailing clouds of glory and that we do indeed come from God, who is our home. I have written about it through the stories of mothers and their unborn children.
Today on International Women’s Day, I am happy to gift you with a free book, The Castaways, our 15th Year Anniversary Edition. This is a sacred book about that sacred bond between mothers and their unborn children. Please email me today at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and mailing address and your free book will be in the mail very soon
An example of women and their intuitive spiritual gifts is the following story:
There’s a tribe in Africa that counts a child’s birthday from the day it first appears as a thought in its mother’s mind. On that day, [the] woman sits under a tree and quietly listens and waits until she can hear the song of her child. When she has heard the song, she returns to her village and teaches it to . . . the child’s father, so that they can sing the song when they are together and make love, inviting the child to join them.
The expectant mother then sings the song to the child in her womb and teaches it to the midwives, who sing it when the child is born. All the villagers learn the child’s song as well, so that whenever the child cries or hurts itself, they can pick it up, hold it in their arms and sing the song. The song is also sung when the young person goes through a rite of passage, when he or she marries, and one last time, when he or she is about to die.
Willing mothers understand, as William Wordsworth wrote:
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home.
