A few days ago I was super proud of myself as I sat down to write the week’s article. “Here I am on Wednesday morning thinking of topics, I’m way ahead of the game to publish tomorrow.” Turns out, I had that thought on Thursday. It wasn’t really Wednesday. I have baby brain, big time.
Long-time readers might recall, I announced my pregnancy many moons ago. And after what felt like the world’s longest pregnancy, my baby is finally here.
There she is: Evelyn Jean Curtis. She came during Snowstorm Nemo. My water broke as the barometric pressure changed and hours later, my baby girl was born at home, out of the aquatic womb she’d lived in for 9 months and into my arms.
On February 8th at 1:11 AM of this year, my heart cracked open in ways I didn’t know it could. The depth of love I felt (and still feel, ever-growing) is unlike any love I’ve ever experienced. My birth was everything I dreamt of and more. We were surrounded by love (family and midwives) and the Divine Feminine, right here at home. A part of my soul was born and awakened right along with Evelyn’s entrance into our world.
A very dear friend of mine put it so beautifully:
My personal belief is that the birth of each child brings such a profound opening of the soul, that it isn’t simply an opening of your body to allow another physical form to be born. That it is even more of an opening of a mother’s soul to birth another soul into being. And that to me, always brings momentous life experience and the opportunity to heal something. It’s the ultimate in creation and connection with the great ‘all that is’
She is absolutely right. My birth was very healing for me, as it opened my soul and heart in ways I didn’t even know existed. Every child’s birth – as their soul embarks on a brand new journey – gives us a window into the ‘One’, the collectiveness, of all of us.
I feel honored, excited and so very lucky to be Evelyn’s mom. The Universe has given me the greatest gift of all. I look forward to the journey we will share in the coming years.
I’m still doing readings
I’ve had lots of inquiries as to whether or not I am still doing intuitive readings. The answer to that is yes! I’ve done several since Evelyn has been born. Newborns sleep a lot, and I manage to get a lot done during her snoozin’ time.
If you’re interested in booking a reading with me, please visit the Intuitive Readings Page.
Out of all of the guesses on The Daily Awe Baby Poll, my OWN MOM won – she had everything right (almost). She guessed the time as 5:55…she was only a little off!
