Many people around the world share that they have pre-birth memories - early childhood remembrances of consciousness before their life lived in the body. These experiences happen mostly during childhood or during the Death-Bed Vision/Near-Death Experience. Kitti shares: "I had an innerdance recently when right at the end I was taken back to a very early childhood memory (under 3). This memory has been emerging for some time but now began to reveal details. When I was little, I told my family I had chosen them. I knew. It was simple. My sisters often joked and asked me what it was like in mum's tummy. It became a common joke with them but at the same time I felt I knew. Then life took over and the little child wisdom was lost for many many years!
The experience of returning to the womb comes to me many times. Often after a great deal of movement, I find myself in deep deep stillness. There is not a lot I can word about these experiences. They are just deep and dark and incredibly still, also very comforting and timeless within the womb space. In one session, I was lying face down and I had the experience of being energetically pulled via my womb deep down into the earth. I felt like I was birthed and re-birthed countless times, through countless lives. Then I remember there were trees. This happened a while back and I forget the finer details, but back then they were very vivid.
"In my innerdances, many early childhood memories awake; particularly, there's this image of a house at the end of my street which often is shown from a distance. Last week in a process, I remembered a women I met there, maybe only once. It was quite a simple memory but everything from that day was so rich in detail - her porch, the flowers. I felt there was something special shared between us that day, some feeling of kindness. Yesterday, I found myself wandering through my childhood home (pre-3yrs old). I have always had memories of this house but this time i felt like I was almost mechanically able to move room to room with much clarity on spacial aspects, floor plan, fittings like bathroom tiles and carpet. I felt like I was able to experience great detail about the house. I had a few flashbacks of games my older sisters would play, hiding my dads keys once when he needed to go to work. But the experience was like a virtual reality. There was no emotion or nostalgia or dreaminess. I felt quite clear and awake, just intrigued that memory could be accessed in such a way. I had not gone looking for it yet it came - a little parcel of reflection. I am left wondering how many portals in space and time lay neatly packaged into our bodies. "
What is The Birth Vision? Imagine watching the life you are about to live before you exit the womb? People in the process of witnessing a future life share how they are asked to choose their parents's life conditions before they slip into a reality fully oriented around a core idea called the Birth Vision. To them, the Birth Vision is the pattern besetting the highest manifestation of love and light belonging to the experience of an individual human being.
"The consciousness of the foetuses is probably nearer to dream consciousness than anything else," says David Boadella. Foetuses dream more than babies do, just as babies dream much more than adults. While adults experience only 25%REM in their sleep stages, premature babies undergo REM 85% of the time. Certain scientists believe that the dream state nourishes the fast growing nervous system of the foetus. The Birth Vision takes place one to two weeks before the baby exits the womb.
Danielle from Sydney shares: "During my very first innerdance process, I went through my life in a backwards motion starting from the present moment and finishing in the womb. It all happened in a second with very vivid images. I wonder how it is possible to look at so much in just a short amount of time. I still remember when I got to womb ... I let out an excruciating yell as a huge pain was released maybe from the actual birthing process. There was an image of me in an embryonic position crouched in a very dark place."
Jordis from Germany shares: "The innerdance took me back to the womb; Even as I became a baby, I saw myself looking at a baby from outside the womb, while I felt I was also that baby at the same time. In other experiences, I go through my childhood days, sometimes with very clear visions, accompanied with deep feelings directly related to these childhood experiences."
Thomas shares: "I was in a large spherical, domed, room, with dim light. I was surrounded by many others, and felt like we all were sharing similar experiences. A small table protruded the complete distance around the room, about halfway down the wall, to my desired height. On the table sat a sphere, or a bubble in front of myself. Other people stood in front of their bubbles, as did I. I looked into my sphere, and a movie began to play in the bubble. I watched it in its entirety, and felt that I had to make a choice. There were other people consulting me, and I decided to take this life.
I have found throughout my life I have come across certain events, that remind me of the movie I watched before I choose this life. The actual choice of living my life was not a hard decision, but I remember watching it from beginning (birth), to end (death). I remember the actual journey being, just a short trip, with full intentions of returning shortly. I felt that the choice I made was a great opportunity for me to learn, and become wiser."
