The Womb, My Grandson Damiano & Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day

The womb is not unlike a foreign embassy. A small presence in a foreign land representing its host nation. Women continue to argue that i) the womb is part of their body, ii) that they alone have dominion over the unborn child, and iii) that only they have the authority to determine the fetus’ fate. This is completely untrue.

The womb is a divine tabernacle. It is God’s nursery in this three-dimensional plane. The woman is simply a caretaker for God’s ambassadorial presence while the womb occupies the world of matter.


The mistake women make is in assuming that an error in passion, regardless its form, is also an error by the awaiting spirit seeking entry into a chosen womb. Spirits are ethereal flames seeking a material wick. When women snuff the God-force within themselves, they do not abort a fetus, they commit multiple forms of personal suicide. Suicide damages their minds, their physiology, and ultimately their souls.


A woman experiences approximately 360 menstrual cycles during her lifetime. Each menstrual cycle would represent one degree within the circle of life. 


The circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement, God. God is a circle whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere’………Hermes Trismegistus 


As the sun, it is masculine power; as the soul and as encircling waters, it is the feminine maternal principle. "It implies an idea of movement, and symbolizes the cycle of time, the perpetual motion of everything that moves, the planets' journey around the sun (the circle of the zodiac), the great rhythm of the universe. 


The circle is also zero in our system of numbering, and symbolizes potential, or the embryo. It has a magical value as a protective agent, ... and indicates the end of the process of individuation, of striving towards a psychic wholeness and self-realization”……..Julien, 71.


October 15th represents "Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day". Last night we lit a candle in remembrance of our still-born grandson. As the Day of the Dead is quickly approaching, today my wife and I went to visit my grandson’s grave, as we have done many times throughout the year. I held his still-born body for hours about a decade ago. The loss of such a beautiful child saddens me to this day. Perhaps he made the decision to turn back and stay within the realm of spirits. Perhaps we were not ready to receive such a wonderful gift. The lesson is that a spiritual retreat is not a material abortion. Whatever his reason, he provided me the justification to argue for life. 


His inanimate presence was a momentary gift. I continue to smile with him as we pray together at night’s end.


How women have empowered themselves with the right to murder is beyond me. Embryonic destruction is a crime against the unborn child, but its impact is far greater upon the living. I will concede however that there are very limited occasions when a pregnancy may be terminated


Thank you,
