Question: What are the causes behind postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis, which affects about 15% and 0.1 to 0.2% of women respectively, can it be related to beings of the fallen consciousness sending psychic attacks? If so, then why do such attacks happen more frequently after childbirth? Also can it be related to the level of consciousness of the new lifestream, i.e. dark forces trying to seek to harm the lifestream that came into embodiment on this planet. Also, can it be related to the level of consciousness of the new lifestream, i.e. dark forces trying to seek to harm the lifestream that came into embodiment on this planet?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.
Well as with many questions, my beloved there are several different factors here. One factor can be purely body chemistry, where some women release certain hormones during pregnancy, or during childbirth, that can cause a depression. But in most cases, it is actually that it relates to the woman’s attitude to having children. What you can do if you have experienced this, is you can use the tools we have given in Healing Your Spiritual Traumas and the other books to look at your attitude to being on the planet. This will also give you clues to how you look at having children.
You can then use these tools to identify certain separate selves, there is a certain resistance in you towards having a child. This is something that I fully understand, that all ascended masters understand, you are on a very dense, very difficult planet. Having a child is a quite frankly, violent process to your physical body. It is a very difficult environment to be in, there are often many, many stress factors on a pregnant woman. And it is very understandable that we can build up this resistance over many lifetimes of having these very difficult pregnancies. So this is something you can look at, and seek to resolve in yourself.
Now, it is also correct that in some cases, women will give birth to a lifestream that has a certain Christ potential, and the fallen beings, the dark forces will direct very negative energy, both at the child and the mother to derail that person’s potential. If they can manage to set off a psychological or mental illness in the mother, then that can affect a child at an early age.
But it can also be in some cases, that the child has a very negative momentum from past lives, it may have a certain tie to the astral plane, and makes it an open door for these energies to stream into the child’s energy field, which of course, then will affect the mother as well. So there can be a multitude of reasons for it. And the last two instances I mentioned, spiritual protection, calling for spiritual protection can be effective for Astrea to cut both, you and the child free from any ties to dark forces or the astral plane. But this does not mean to say that you should only use spiritual tools and not use whatever is available from doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, whatever is practical in your situation.
