Awed by a bundle of joy
The experience of witnessing the miraculous birth of her grandchild sends Jyoti Marianne Bahri into a poetic rapture
Since my daughter-in-law Andrea’s baby had not turned and was stuck with the umbilical cord around its neck, it was mandatory to have a caesarian. But a day before the scheduled procedure, Andrea felt uneasy, and the labour pains started. My son rushed her to the hospital, where they got everything ready for an emergency intervention.
Invoking divine blessings
It was an exhilarating cool summer day in Germany. We all sat waiting in our respective homes. I lit up a candle and burned incense in front of a statue of Mother Mary. Deeply engrossed in prayers, Monika, Andrea’s mother, and I evoked divine blessings to ward off all negative influences as they do occur at crucial transition points in life. We asked for grace to be present. Situations like this make me feel very humble. Often, we take for granted that things will go well, and I realise that nothing is predictable, nothing is certain.
Birth, the transition into life, is a crucial part of the life cycle. It is an essential rite of passage. I deeply connected and held my breath. I made space for the new phase to take place in our lives in gratitude and surrender. I had already sat in the early morning hours and cleared the energies. I took Andrea and the baby one by one into my inner heart space, prayed for their well-being, and healed that part in me. I requested my ancestors’ lineage to help release the old patterns and attachments, and bless the mother and the unborn child. I visualised the shields coming in to protect them from unnecessary negativity and evil interferences. Now, finally, the time had come to welcome the child.
Connecting with the baby, I could feel the intensity of the moment and the medical procedure of bringing the child safely into this world. I could feel the trust that everything was going well. I sat quietly and watched the circle of related people and beings widening around the mother and the child, all waiting patiently to welcome him with open arms—delighted about his arrival.
Beholding the baby
The atmosphere in the room grew more intense moment by moment. Suddenly, as if the sky had opened, an incredible influx of light appeared and filled the entire space with sparkling light. The light compacted into a column of light with no beginning and no end. There it was, a powerful being manifested in a tiny body, giving a glimpse of its indescribable energy form and shape, an extension beyond the boundaries of time and space. There it was, a tiny baby holding us in awe, in an illuminating way. It finally arrived for eyes to see and hearts to perceive. Spellbound, these words poured out of me:
In awe, we bow our heads
struck by the spark of infinity
You are the blissful self
coming into this world
with unimaginable beauty
You gift everyone
with their own splendour
you are reflecting on them.
It is you who shines like a
thousand suns, illuminating
the space all around you.
It is you that opens up
the hearts of everyone around you.
You are flooding us with your love
Overwhelmed, we open our hearts.
We are standing in a circle around you
with tears in our eyes, we welcome you.
With open arms, we receive you
pouring our love onto you.
Receiving you in all this light
and with all our love
becoming one with you.
The world is holding its breath
creating the space to let you in.
Bells are ringing,
the chirping of the birds seizes.
A moment frozen in time
To receive you in all your greatness
in its most splendid form
Swagatam, welcome my sweet baby boy
with all your greatness, all your splendour
You come to us from a different world to shine
To bring the essence of love.
