MIRACLE IN THE WOMB
The following story is from my lovely wife, Marianne.
About 19 years ago, we were fairly new in Kabbalah. Probably learning for about 3 years. I was pregnant with my 4th child. All 3 previous children were born naturally and healthy, Thank G-d. All were born exactly 9 lbs and 6oz, so I always had big babies. I was nearing the end of the pregnancy (end of 9th month )and had my usual weekly doctors appt. At this appt the doctor did his usual examination and found that the baby was breech (upside down for a natural delivery). He said that because of my history of having very large babies they would most likely need to do a ceasarian section rather than try to deliver the baby naturally.
I left the doctors office and went to the Kabbalah Centre in Toronto, to meet my husband, and the Rav and Karen who were in town. I walked in, said hello to the Rav and told him what had happened. The Rav picked up the Zohar, opened it to a specific section and he told me to scan this portion. The Rav then smiled and assured me that everything would be fine.
I went home that night, took my evening bath as I do every night, and while i was in the bath I started to meditate on the passage of Zohar. As you can imagine my stomach was extremely large. As soon as I started scanning the text, my stomach started to move in and out with outlines of various limbs protruding (like something out of a horror movie). I was shocked. I thought if there was going to be a change or some kind of miracle, it would likely happen during the night while I slept. But it was happening right then and there. Immediately after I had opened up the Zohar. My entire stomach started twisting and turning as I sat in the bath meditating on the verses. It was very painful. I screamed “billy!!!” and he came running upstairs. I showed him what was happening. Now he was freaked! After about ten minutes, the movement stopped.
I went back to the doctor for one of the final check ups before my due date. He shouted, “Wow- you had a miracle…the baby is no longer breech and you are ready to go!” The doctor couldn’t figure it out.
Soon after that I gave birth naturally, to a healthy huge (10 lb!) baby girl.
