5 Insights that Will Change Your Pregnancy
The TweedleWink right-brain prenatal program is now over 20 years old. Over this precious time, we've discovered how to help mothers connect with, and educate, babies in the womb. We do so using five gifts of insight--key concepts and abilities that are present during pregnancy.
Your baby has a voice.
Your baby communicates with frequencies.
Your baby feels loved when you respond.
Your connection grows through practice.
If you can communicate, you can educate.
Let me explain.
INSIGHT 1: Your baby has a voice.
Every baby in the womb has a voice and has something to say. It may not be verbally expressed. But, it's there. You can hear it if you listen with right-brain intuition.
Sandra was a chef who had married late in her career. When she became pregnant, she was eager to cook delicious, nutritious food for her developing baby. She began right brain prenatal classes when she was only 4 months pregnant, and each week she shared amazing new stories of how her baby would direct her to use certain foods and avoid others while she cooked for herself. Some of her most favorite foods were left untouched on the shelves during pregnancy because she could feel that her baby would not care for them.
"How do you know your baby won't like them?" we asked.
"Well, as a chef, when I think about a recipe, I can already sense the taste in my mind."
She smiled, "Then I feel either a happy, excited feeling about eating, or I hear or see a big NO in my mind."
INSIGHT 2: Your baby communicates with frequencies.
Dr. Celeste A. Miller writes, “The right brain function is based on the notion that all things exist as subatomic particles that vibrate at ultra-high frequency. The right brain is somehow equipped like a tuning fork to receive and process these frequencies which are perceived as thoughts, images, feelings colors and sensations, but not necessarily at the conscious level.”
Camella was 7 months pregnant when she joined class. Her child had strong opinions about music. When she went out with her husband, the baby would kick and she would see "red" when certain music was played in a store or restaurant. She had to leave in order to feel peaceful once again.
"Do you see a color when your baby is happy?" one of the mothers in class asked.
"Yes! " she emphatically replied. "I see different colors for different kinds of happy feelings."
INSIGHT 3: Your baby feels loved when you respond.
Prenatal communication IS possible. It happens whether or not we are actually aware of it. We need to listen… and respond.
MEETING FEAR WITH LOVE
Betsy was 6 months pregnant. To ease her housework, her husband had purchased a new vacuum cleaner. She excitedly plugged it in and turned it on.
Suddenly, her baby startled and began to kick violently. She turned it off.
She could feel a heightened sense of fear--although she felt that it was not her own.
She immediately closed her eyes and sent love to her baby, rubbing her tummy, singing soothingly: "It's okay, baby. You are safe and sound."
Gradually a sense of peace came over her and she felt that her baby was calm.
Mentally, she asked her baby, "Are you okay?"
She felt a happy YES feeling.
INSIGHT 4: Your connection grows through practice.
The process of being able to listen to your child takes time and practice. Young children, of course, can sense these frequencies much more easily than adults. Not only that, they are also MUCH more ready to play with what they perceive! We can learn from them.
When Janice was pregnant with her fifth child, her older children loved to come to her tummy to talk to the new baby. They would sing songs and read stories.
Toward the end of the pregnancy, they played games and baby would respond!
In one game, they tapped on mommy's tummy 1 to 3 times and waited for a response. Baby replied with an exact number of taps.
In another game, the children would hold their hands over different parts of mom's tummy. Soon, baby would push back at that very same point.
This playful interaction set the stage for a sibling bond that has lasted over time.
INSIGHT 5: If you can communicate, you can educate.
Once you begin to communicate with your baby, you might start to receive strong impulses. You may become inspired to read novels, or listen to specific pieces of music (or composers), or learn a new language. Whenever you feel a strong impulse of delight--take note. Your baby is talking to you!
A CLASSICAL CONNOISSEUR
During class one day, we played Schubert's "Ave Maria." We were comfortably seated with eyes closed--in a moment of relaxation.
When the piece had concluded, Tina--a new mother in class--shared that her baby had moved with the music during the entire piece. She felt great emotions of bliss and went into a transcendent state during the playing of the music. She even saw rainbow colors in her mind.
After class, Tina asked to borrow the CD. She had not really listened to classical music before and she could feel that her baby really enjoyed it. She wanted to continue the experience at home. Over time, she created a collection of pieces and charted her baby's responses. Later, after he was born, she used different songs to soothe him for nap or excite him for learning.
You can use this same technique with world languages, instructional CDs, videos, books and flashcards! All loving sensorial stimulation given in the earliest moments of life prepare the brain for lifelong IQ and EQ.
These 5 insights are precious gifts from our hearts to yours. Children raised with a strong mother-child intuitive connection are happy and alive with purpose and connection.
I wish you the very best as you begin your own prenatal journey.
