My husband John and I used Colette’s skills to help us with our dogs and for personal readings which we found very healing and mind opening.
Later, when I was six months into my first pregnancy, John (a father from a previous marriage) wanted us to have a session with our unborn baby but I hesitated. Before long I realized that my reticence came from the part of me that suggests I’m not good enough. Reminded of how helpful Colette’s other sessions had been, I got over my fear and we prepared our questions.
The session with our spirit baby was exceptional!! John and I had narrowed the list of potential names to three favorites, and before we had a chance to share it with Colette she said, “Your baby wishes to be named Lilly.” Oh my God! That was the second name on our list. Then Lilly shared her worries about my lack of rest and about John working too much. We were so touched by her concerns that we made some positive changes to our lifestyle. The conversation was quite detailed and lasted over an hour. Lilly wanted a water birth which is what I had hoped for as well. We talked about her room and she asked if we could put star constellations on the ceiling. Through Colette, she talked about colors, music, the dogs and John’s kids. For both John and me, the conversation was the most delightful experience ever.
Three months later my water broke. It was February 10th, 2014 and four days before my due date. I had accepted an epidural and was five hours into labor but not dilating. The doctor told us to expect the process would take another five hours or more and not to rule out caesarian. I got worried so we called Colette. She spontaneously connected with Lilly who said that she was afraid of leaving the safety of the womb especially knowing she wasn’t getting a water birth. Colette spent a few minutes reassuring Lilly and then guided John and I through relaxing visualizations and breathing exercises. Lilly was in our arms one hour later, clearly relaxed and smiling ever so sweetly.
We have deep gratitude and respect for Colette’s abilities and gentle manner, and to us, she is a Spiritual Midwife.
