An interesting difference between Western doctors and shamanic practitioners is that the shaman is a medium for guides and spirits beyond the physical plane. Doctors are primarily focused on the physical aspects of the healing process. A shaman operates a bit differently. They are inspired, even led, by their helpers.

Talking to Spirit Babies is little different than what other mediums do in transmitting the messages of older crossed-over loved ones to a client. The big difference is that the Spirit Baby is always in the mother’s aura, and so there is no question of whether or not they will choose to appear. They always have lots to share!
The babies always give messages about having chosen their parents, loving their mother, and usually, what the parents need to understand or do before the baby can come in or come back. Very often the babies give identifying information...
