Rare are those among us who seem to remember anything about our first breath at birth, what transpired in the nine months inside the womb or even our existence before our biological conception.
Our first memories of living in the body are steeped in deep mystery and lie hidden beneath layers of veiled consciousness.
How fascinating, then, to find gifted individuals who experience a conscious birth, who recall the realms of the cosmos from where they journeyed to reach Earth, as well as their reasons for coming here. We describe memory of events occurring prior to life in a physical body and developing a physical brain – “gifted memory.” William Wordsworth, the 19th Century English poet refers to Gifted Memory when he says:
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting: the Soul that rises with us, our Life’s Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, and cometh from afar: Not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home.
