Babies Are Cosmic, Signs of Their Secret Intelligence


Preparation for writing Babies Are Cosmic came from studies in major universities where we taught and researched. The field of consciousness has captured our interest for more than 50 years, and we’ve pursued it through scientific and personal inquiry. Our university studies came in the 1960s–1970s when consciousness was emerging as a new field of investigation from physics to humanistic psychology, to physiology, to neurobiology, and sociology. Science was the validating right hand, and inner growth was the insightful left hand.

Our previous investigations resulted in two books on the extent of
consciousness before birth:

Cosmic Cradle: Spiritual Dimensions of Life before Birth (2013) and

Cosmic Cradle: Souls Waiting in the Wings for Birth (1999).

These books focus on.

  • Adults (and a few children) with an extraordinary consciousness who have lifelong memories of their journey from the spiritual world to conception, life in the womb, and birth itself.
  • Parents who report subtle contacts with their unborn children via dreams, visions, an inner voice, feeling the child’s presence, telepathy, and a host of other announcing signs. These mysterious communications occur before or after conception and establish a new parent-child relationship.
  • Prebirth reports collected from indigenous peoples, mystics, East-West saints, ancient philosophers, Tibetan Lamas, and Near-Death Experiencers, religious texts indicating a universal phenomenon interconnecting cultures and spanning centuries. Parallels from 108 cultures and religions, including theories about prebirth planning, cosmologies describing where our soul dwells prior to entering the womb, and reasons why people forget life before birth.

Pre-birth reports form part of a deep pattern
interconnecting cultures and spanning centuries.
Table I displays cultures and religions surveyed for Cosmic Cradle.

Cosmic Cradle provides a synthesis for understanding our
spiritual roots and soul journey:

  • Do we choose our parents and our future lives before we are born?
  • How does the soul select parents and future life circumstances?
  • Can communications occur between potential parents and souls seeking human birth?
  • Why does the soul “fall” from the higher dimensions?
  • How do souls travel to earth?
  • When does the soul enter the womb?
  • What happens when we are the womb?
  • What happens when we take our first breath?
