conversation with Walter Makichen

I had my conversation with Walter Makichen (author of Spirit Babies: How to Communicate with the Child You're Meant to Have) today.  As in my first conversation, he was really insightful and understanding, and I'm so glad that I talked with him.
We talked about how this whole thing with the surrogate is very confusing to the spirit baby, because in her last lifetime this kind of medical thing did not exist, and also because the baby is very bonded to me so it's hard for her to go into someone else's womb.  He gave me some visualizations and a chant and also suggestions on what to explain to the baby about the process.
He noticed that my immune system is fighting off something, which we think is the candida.  He gave me a chant for that too.
We spent some time talking about the fibroids. He said that they feel like something from the past that has decided to stick around, like they were left over from a time when I had less self-esteem.  That they didn't seem like they needed to be there now. He gave me a chant for those too, he says he usually wouldn't give that particular chant to someone trying to have a baby but since I am using a surrogate he decided to. 
Again, so glad that I consulted with him again.  It makes me feel hopeful and that I have tools to use.
My surrogate arrives tomorrow and the next transfer is Thursday, so everyone please send good thoughts this way!

wow! for some reason it went right past me that you were using a surrogate..so apparently Walter thinks this is a good ideal and will work? are you not meant to carry your babies yourself? that was sweet how he told you that baby is very bonded to you and wants to come thru your womb. i wonder though..my analystical mind thinks..how come God, the spirits guides, etc. "up there" don't explain to your baby what's going on. i don't get why you have to explain all this. i just kind of assumed that before we come down to earth everything is explained to us before we come, but then when we get down here we forget..sending positive thoughts your way....

Hi Ginae,
Yes, I decided to use a surrogate, rather than have surgery. Because due to size & position of my fibroids I would need an abdominal myomectomy rather than a laproscopic. And also due to my blood clotting disorder if I were to get pregnant I would need to take heavy duty blood thinners the whole pregnancy. And also due to my age I don't really have the time to try myomectomy see if it will work (doesn't always, can either leave scar tissue or if goes wrong they end up giving you a hysterectomy) so we decided that surrogacy made the most sense for us. Evidently however according to Walter the baby is disappointed and would much rather be with me, so it's going to take a lot of explaining to get her comfortable with it. Ugh I hate these damn fibroids they make things so complicated!

Have you been trying for over 2 years to shrink your fibroids? It looks like you must have spent a lot of money trying various methods. Obviously, the more money you have, the more resources you will be able to use. You seem to be lucky that way but it still hasn't made a difference in the end. I admire your perserverance. Prayers are being sent your way.

Hi Fibroid Shrinker (feels funny calling you that..lol) i know i hate the fibroids too! ugh! if you don't mind me asking-how old are you? did Walter explain why God hasn't explained everything to your baby already? I still don't get why you have to explain it when God and/or the babies angels can. I thought that sort of thing was explained before we came down here but then we forget once we're here on earth???

Sending big positive vibes your way, FS. I really hope it works out for you and the surrogate.

I am now nearly 33 weeks pregnant and I have to say am having a bit of pain with one of my fibroids. It is at the top of my uterus and has doubled in size since the start of pregnancy.

Everytime baby moves, fibroid moves and whacks off my other organs. It's very very uncomfortable.

I also have four other fibroids..at the start of pregnancy, I had two. So they definitely increase in numbers and size while pregnant.

I hope all your dreams come true very soon.

Thanks so much Christy, I really appreciate the good vibes. We transferred 4 embryos today, all fingers crossed!!!

Thanks so much IKW for the positive thoughts. Sorry to hear that the fibroids are giving you pain. Best wishes for the rest of your pregnancy!

Hi again Ginae,
Good question about why doesn't God or angels explain things to the baby? Walter didn't say, but it seems like it's the parent's job. His work raises all sorts of questions.
I'm now 45 by the way. Yes I realize on the old side to be doing this, however my eggs seem to be of good quality, had 4 great embryos to implant this time (they grew nicely).

Ginae said...

Well I'm 41 myself so when you stated you were 45 you being old didn't even cross my mind. Who knows maybe she'll get pregnant with twins and you can get two babies! I know I know i'm just saying..lol..I really want this for you and think it would be fantastic although I guess Walter would have told you about two babies if that was the case.

I just wanted to thank you for posting about Walter Makichen here. I have a consultation with him next week and am really excited. I hope that this has worked out for you.

You're welcome, am sure you will have a great conversation with him.
As for me, still working on things, but he was very helpful!
