So many people have been asking about my pregnancy and wishing me well—thank you all! I thought you might enjoy some stories of all the ways we communicate with the baby, even though she is still in my belly! It has given me a whole new appreciation of this psychic thing. 🙂
First of all, her favorite song is “You Wanna Be Starting Something” by Michael Jackson. We noticed this in the first few months of pregnancy when it came on in the car and we felt her rocking out. “I like this one,” she told me. So we played it for her sometimes, and we both kept getting a picture of her moving her head back and forth, like she was in a mosh pit or something!
She showed me that she loved yellow and orange, and got happy when I ate any orange or yellow fruits. In the first few months I had an orange every day. She also loves mango and has told her Daddy many times to eat carrots.
One day around this time, I was walking thru the grocery store and saw a package of edible flowers. They practically jumped off the shelf and of course, they were yellow and orange marigolds. “Get those, Mommy!” she said. Months later, someone made our wedding cake and I was amused to find it was covered in yellow and orange marigolds. She’s not only talking to us, she’s working our friends too!
We came up with her name on our own. It’s Azadeh (pronounced “Ahh-zuh-day”), which is a Persian name that means, “free as a lion”. We were clearly guided that the child wanted a Middle Eastern name, to help bring peace and bridge cultures. But this was the only name we had at first.
Then one morning I heard “Azadeh Rose”. Later that day, I asked my husband if he liked it and he said, “I heard the same thing today.”
Almost every time I check with her, she’s happy, even when I am going through something. In general I tell parents to let their children know, either psychically or verbally, that Mommy (or Daddy)’s emotions are their own and have nothing to do with the child. When I say things like this to Azadeh, she usually smirks at me and says something like, “I know, I’m just waiting for you to get through this.” Several times I’ve checked to see how she’s doing and she’s said “I’m fine, Mommy, just take care of you.”
She thanks me for meditating. I remember one time it happened, I wasn’t feeling so great and wondered why she kept telling me how happy she was about what I was doing. She said, “Mommy, do you know that not very many people do this? I love that you do!”
Another time I was doing a specific meditation technique, running energy through my body, and I looked down and there she was doing it too!
The one time she seemed at all upset, I was in Colorado without her Dad. I had been traveling alone for several days and I think it had just clicked for her that we were far from him and our home.
As soon as I sensed she was concerned, I asked what it was about and she flashed me a picture of his face. For a moment I was worried something was wrong with him, but I quickly understood that she just missed him. I asked what she needed and she said, “Hold me.” So I put my hand on my belly and she calmed down immediately.
Now, we put hands on my belly regularly and she so loves it! One day, my husband (who wants to move to a bigger house) asked her if she’d like to move into a big house with her own bedroom. No response.
We laughed, knowing she cares more about cuddling with us than she does about the size of her house. So, I asked her what she wants for her house and she said, “a porch swing,” and “I want to see the animals all around it.”
One morning I woke up, put my hand on my belly, and asked how she was. Very matter-of-factly she said, “I’m working with Daddy right now.” So I let her be, got up, made some breakfast and told him what she’d said.
He showed me a list of things she’d been saying to him for the last hour– everything from business advice to how to open up emotionally to what songs to download. Now that she is kicking, we know that she’s a big music lover (and it’s not just Michael Jackson she likes :).
She keeps saying, “I’m getting bigger” and we can feel she’s excited to come out. She loves having a body, and she loves food and movement. One morning she told me she wanted to do a cartwheel. So—6 months pregnant—I did one for her!
These are just a few stories and I’m sure there will be many, many more! I’m so grateful to have this communication and I wish it for all parents, and for the children coming in to be truly seen, felt and heard.
