Last week my 4yo told me about how he was going to get a new toy at the birthday party he was going to soon. He remembered that the party place has once of those glass cases with the robot grabber arm where you pay money for a chance to try to get a prize. I told him good luck & he said thanks. He was all excited and I told him that he might not win, that it was just a chance, but he was confident.
He came home from the party with a HUGE stuffed bear. He did it.
The momma who most recently gave birth had commented several times during our talks that she would love it if her baby was born "in the caul". Traditional wisdom is that babies born in the veil of the amniotic sac will be especially powerful and intuitive. I told her about the birth where I had taken a picture of such a baby, but that it wasn't super common (just checked - about 1/1000). Still, she brought it up a few more times.
Her baby was born in the caul. Her midwife called her a "Dalai Lama baby".
Intention is powerful. Maybe I should stop trying to rain on everyone's parade!
