Here are some ways you can prepare your lives for conception:-
Parenting as Initiation

Parenting is a massive transformation in lifestyle. It requires an opening of the heart, a less self-centred lifestyle. It is a lifelong responsibility, and therefore a Herculean task. Are you ready?

Give some thought and discussion to how you would like to conceive, bear, birth and raise your child.

Consider birth obstacles such as fear of birth and sexual abuse.

Weigh up whether you might actually prefer to be voluntarily childless. 
Childfree (The Guardian) has various articles and personal stories that may help you decide.

Read some books on attachment parenting such as The Baby Book by Sears & Sears.
Start reading articles on websites such as BirthWorks InternationalPeggy O'Mara, Mothering magazine, Life.

Quality of Relationships

Some questions to ask:-
  • How is the relationship between you and your partner? Are you a good team, needed to raise a child? Take the test: Am I cut out for marriage? 
  • How is the relationship between you and your parents?
  • How is the relationship between you and your partner's parents?
  • How is your relationship to your self? Do you have self-worth, self-love?
  • Do you live in a safe environment? Try and create your nest well in advance!
  • Are your basic needs being met?
  • Are you living healthily? Eating, exercising, sleeping healthily? Do you connect with nature? Can you relax? 
  • Ideally ensure your gut and microbiome is healthy. It will make your child's immune system so much stronger.
"The microbiome is the foundation of a healthy functioning digestive and immune system. It is essential for good health. In an ideal world, it starts preconception. I spent years healing my gut and improving my own microbiome before conceiving my daughter. It was so important to me to give her the strongest start in this area. It starts way before birth." (Crystal Di Domizio, Midwifery Today E-News “The Microbiome”, 20 January 2016, Volume 18, Issue 2, accessed 21 January 2016)

Try to improve or resolve any issues before conception. Even if unresolved issues persist into parenthood, their healing at any time will benefit any children too, as well as the lineage!

Lunaception is about aligning your menstrual cycle with the Moon. This way of being has been the way humans
naturally always lived, but artificial light and other hormone disruptors in our modern environment (e.g. Pill, drugs, diet) have disturbed Nature's way. This human-caused chaos means random and uncomfortable menstrual periods.

'Women’s menstrual cycles are wired to be in sync with the moon. In all early societies, before industrialism and processed foods disrupted traditional cultures, women ovulated at the full moon and menstruated at the new moon [or sometimes vice-versa].  This is every woman’s intrinsic default setting… this is how we are meant to be. Hormonal disruption, however, causes biological chaos in our menstrual cycle.'

Lunaception uses specific night lighting
Read how here. This not only improves fertility but also many women's reproductive health issues. 

Moon Cycles

I also see Lunaception as being about understanding the essence of mothering and birth, as a cyclical and deeply mysterious event in harmony with Nature. This is something most women have lost, as we have disrespected and disconnected from Nature. Remember that previously we didn't really have to think about all this that much. It just happened. But now we have to take steps to realign with Nature's Way.

Although the 1970s book Lunaception by Louise Lacey is difficult/expensive to get, there is a chapter on it in Conscious Conception by Jeannine Parvati Baker, which may or may not be easier to access. The chapter is called 'Losing Control to Find Balance'. There are also various free online resources, like here.

Birth of a Child = When Child First Thought Of

This excerpt by Dr Thomas Verny here (accessed 20 February 2014) speaks a good deal about the reverence and care required to undertake parenting: 

"I hope you will agree with me that to transform the violent world of today into the peaceful world of tomorrow, we need to change the way we treat our children from the very beginning of their lives. I think we could learn a lot in that respect from a tribe in East Africa (Kornfield, 1996). There is a tribe in East Africa in which the art of true intimacy (I would call it bonding) is fostered even before birth. In this tribe, the birth date of a child is not counted from the day of its physical birth nor even the day of conception, as in other village cultures. For this tribe the birth date comes the first time the child is a thought in its mother's mind. Aware of her intention to conceive a child with a particular father, the mother then goes off to sit alone under a tree. There she sits and listens until she can hear the song of the child that she hopes to conceive. Once she has heard it, she returns to her village and teaches it to the father so that they can sing it together as they make love, inviting the child to join them. After the child is conceived, she sings it to the baby in her womb. Then she teaches it to the old women and midwives of the village, so that throughout the labor and at the miraculous moment of birth itself, the child is greeted with its song. After the birth, all the villagers learn the song of their new member and sing it to the child when it falls or hurts itself. It is sung in times of triumph, or in rituals and initiations. The song becomes a part of the marriage ceremony when the child is grown, and at the end of life, his or her loved ones will gather around the deathbed and sing this song for the last time."

More on Pre-Conception Bonding with Baby

Prenatal Bonding is a time when we need to welcome the consciousness that is incarnating. This consciousness is sentient and is supported by loving and luminous interaction. Sobonfu Somé in her book Welcoming Spirit Home: Ancient African Teachings to Celebrate Children and Community describes how her Dagara tribe in West Africa spiritually communicate with the child both before conception and during pregnancy.

Yet More on Pre-Conception Bonding &
Memories of Pre-Conception

In Cosmic Cradle, Elizabeth and Neil Carman present their research on the pre-conception stage of human incarnation. Their ten year study covers every continent, and is from antiquity to present. They found that over 165 cultures and religions report people who described memories of pre-conception experiences. They also interviewed over 100 people with pre-conception memories and who shared stories of pre-conception communication between parent-to-be and future child. Here are what they call The Principles of the Cosmic Cradle Pre-Conception Paradigm:-

  1. Parenthood begins long before sperm unites with egg. 
  2. Preparation for human life occurs in the womb of the universe, a hidden realm filled with intelligent souls waiting to be born. 
  3. Our life plan, or cosmic contract, is designed prior to conception. 
  4. The boundaries of memory transcend our brain. Human consciousness exists independently of a brain and nervous system, even before the tiny fetus forms. 
  5. Individuals with gifted awareness are aware of souls seeking birth and remember pre-uterine life. 
  6. Human life is the coming together of a mother, father, child's soul, and the soul's cosmic contract.

Evidence that We are Consciousness or Angel

Just like the evidence of Near-Death Experience, the cross-cultural pre-conception evidence is crucial to transforming society. Evidence for consciousness both before conception and after death exists! For example, Memories of Heaven by Dr Wayne W. Dyer and Dee Garnes, subtitled 'Children's Astounding Recollections of the Time Before They Came to Earth'. 

When will science accept this truth? This surely will cause a massive transformation in society and create a new Culture of Love...

The spirit within is our true nature. 

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin) 

Love is the key to supporting consciousness as it transitions between dimensions.
