Divine Wisdom From Michele Livingston

by Michele Livingston


Dear Michele,

I would like to know if I will ever have a baby. I have been trying to conceive for two years and it has been very difficult. I’ve had two miscarriages and I will soon be 38, which concerns me. The process to get pregnant has me on an emotional roller coaster. I have been seeing a well respected, fertility specialist in Brooklyn. Just to see him I have to leave my house at 5:30 AM (3 times a week) to get a bus, and then switch to a subway. I am exhausted! I am also taking injections of fertility drugs, which cause my hormones to fluctuate. Then I take injections of blood thinners until I find out if I am pregnant for that month. All this gets me upset, anxious and frustrated. Am I wasting my time or is this a sign from God that I shouldn’t have children? Should I adopt? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Casey P.

Hi Casey,

Although I myself never had children, I can empathize with your dilemma. First of all as we age we just don’t have the energy to handle what we did years earlier. Having a baby is a total commitment and will change your entire life. The more tense and anxious you are, the harder it is to conceive. You’ve probably heard many stories of couples adopting a child and then immediately after, they conceive their own. That is because when you’re uptight or gripping a situation too hard, it cuts off the creative flow. This is also true in many other situations in life.

We all have a purpose and are on a distinct mission in life. Some of us need children to fulfill our destiny, and some don’t. Many creative artists, composers and authors have never had children – their works are their children, and they are completely happy. And look at someone like Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who helped so many. Those she touched were all her "children." The point is, you need to look objectively at your life and see where your passion lies. How do you want to help humanity? Do you have creative skills that you want to pursue as you grow older? Is the so-called agony that you’re going through now, worth the outcome to you?

Remember, souls from the other side choose a set of parents to learn and grow with. If a soul is ready and determined to come through you, the baby will come to full-term and be delivered. Upon conception a soul comes in closer to the mother and hovers around her. As far as I know the soul does not fully enter the body until we take our first breath – the breath of life. A miscarriage is when the soul changes its mind and retracts from around the mother’s body. A stillborn is when the fetus comes to full-term, but the soul at the last-minute does not wish to enter. The timing may be off for the soul to come down and learn its lessons, or maybe the soul is not sure of the family or situation that it is being born into. We all have free choice and free will – a gift from the creator. No soul is forced to come down to the third dimensional earth plane. Since it can choose to incarnate, it can also choose to retract or leave and go back and stay in the fourth dimension. You cannot force a soul to choose you or a fetus to come to full-term.

As for adoption, there are no accidents. A soul from the other side can see if a mother is not able to conceive, and since it wants to be with that set of parents, the soul will take a surrogate route (choose a surrogate mother), knowing it will be adopted by the ones it wants to be with. There is no time or distance on the other side, and a soul – although human – can tap into universal knowledge.

In your case, Casey, I would say relax with the situation of pregnancy. Your tension and apprehension alone can prevent it. Stop exhausting both yourself and your pocketbook. If you feel you still want to have a baby, think about adopting, knowing that the baby you adopt is a soul that wants to be with you. It’s a wonderful alternative and there may indeed be a child waiting for you. Another plus with adoption could be a natural, effortless conception afterwards! Once you are relaxed and happy a pregnancy is more feasible. This is a lot of food for thought, ... and only my opinion. Pray about it and follow your heart. You’ll know in your spirit what feels right for you. Blessings on your journey.

Dear Michele,

I have a question for you, and I hope it’s metaphysical enough for your column. Actually, it’s a health concern. I’ve been reading your column for the last couple of years and a lot of your wisdom has helped me. My grandfather and father both passed away from lung cancer that was attributed to smoking. I’m also a heavy smoker and have tried many times to quit, but have failed. Do you have any advice for me on how I can give up smoking?

Thanks a lot,

Donald W.

Dear Donald,

I personally cannot see color in the human aura, but I can see light or dark. Most smokers have gray in their auric fields. If we are to be used as spiritual instruments, it is very important not only to cleanse the aura, but also to cleanse the physical body. For a smoker, this means to curb or preferably to quit smoking. Spirit has provided a method for individuals to quit smoking. This is not through hypnotism or chemical patches, but through weaning yourself off of the cigarettes. Cigarettes alone are not addictive and harmful to your health –- it’s the 23 chemicals and toxins in the cigarettes that cause most of the problems.

Remember that the early American Indians lived to be over 100 years old, and they always passed the peace pipe. What people die from today are the chemicals they spray on the tobacco leaves. Most people who smoke have become chemically allergic to the toxins sprayed on the tobacco leaves — chemicals such as formaldehyde and other addictive drugs. This is why it is good to curb or quit smoking. The following method has been recommended by spirit as a means to quit smoking:

If you’re a pack a day smoker, for the first week take one cigarette out of each pack and get rid of it. That adds up to 7 cigarettes the first week. The second week, take out two cigarettes per pack, the third week three cigarettes, and so on. By the end of 20 to 25 weeks, you have weaned yourself off of the chemically addictive drugs.

This method is very helpful in several ways. It helps you to be aware of how much you smoke, when you smoke, and it also instills self-discipline. There have been very good results using this technique and I hope it is also helpful to you. Good luck!
