Is the Soul of the Child I’m Pregnant with the Same Soul from My Stillborn Pregnancy?

This post answers Jyoti’s question about whether the soul of the child she’s now pregnant with is the same soul she had a stillborn pregnancy with back in 2013.

When she and her husband decided to try and get pregnant again, she asked that soul to come back. But they also said in case that soul wants to learn more in the spirit world, any willing soul who wants to join their family will be welcome, loved, and cared for.

Now that Jyoti is pregnant she wants to develop the same bond she had with the soul in her previous pregnancy, but finds this is difficult without knowing whether it’s the same soul. She feels guilty if it hasn’t come back, the child may feel unwanted. And she asks The Council if they can let her know.

The Council begins by asking Jyoti why it’s so important that this particular soul return to her and her husband now. They say it has been with her in many of her realities and if it doesn’t return now, it will again. They continue that it’s a wonderful idea to welcome any soul that’s willing to become part of their family. And they wonder about the wisdom of telling Jyoti rather than letting her have the baby and figuring it out for herself.

But because The Council sees this is such a puzzle for Jyoti and so much on her mind, they feel in this instance it’s helpful for her to know it is the same soul from her stillborn pregnancy two years ago returning to her.

But The Council hopes Jyoti will eventually be open to welcoming at least one more soul, because there’s someone else who would also like to be part of her family. What’s important to understand is that any soul that would come to Jyoti is part her soul group. She has a special bond with each of these souls.

The Council says each of us knows all the souls in our lives. And they wish Jyoti much peace, wonderment, and excitement on what she’ll experience again with this soul, and be welcoming to the other souls that wish to be with her also.

  1. Thank you for your feedback, Jyoti. We’re glad you understand about the other soul The Council mentioned. And we’re glad you’ve stopped obsessing about the soul you so badly want to conceive. We’re glad you came across our website also. And thanks for the correct pronunciation of your name :-).

  2. Hi Bob, Cynthia and the Council,

    Thank you again for addressing my concerns. To be honest, now I don’t understand why it was so important for me to have the same soul back in my life. May be it is the attachment and love I shared with him in those previous 9 months. The fact that we have already shared many lifetimes might have also contributed to this longing I feel. I understand it when you ask me to be more open because all of my near and dear ones are part of my soul family and it makes much more sense. 🙂

    Regarding the next soul lined up to join our family, its not at all a surprise for me. Few months back, when we were talking about trying again , I always felt that I want two kids. When I conceived i was hoping for it to be twins, but then when we found out it was one, the first thing that I said to my husband was, “oops that means we are trying again”. I am sure its the presence of this next soul that has got me into wanting one more baby when I am pregnant with another. I am glad you mentioned it in the session. 🙂

    Lastly, I would like to mention that I have gone through this post many times already and I really want to thank you for making me question why it is so important and if it really matters who comes first. When I think about it now, it doesn’t really matter. These souls have picked us as parents for a reason and as long as it is contributing to our spiritual growth and learning in this lifetime, it should never matter. Strangely enough I have stopped obsessing about the soul I so badly wanted to conceive.I am truly happy that it has decided to come back and I hope this time it is for good. But I have stopped worrying about it.

    Thank you so much for your insight and perspective. I am so glad I came across your website in my time of need. Your responses have always been very helpful and I am truly grateful to all of you for being so open to help people around.


    P.S: Jyoti can be pronounced as “joe-ti” . It doesn’t bother me though. Just mentioned cause I think it bothers you not knowing how to pronounce it. 🙂
