A great deal of scientific research has been done, proving the eternal link between Mother and Child; a deeply engrained, physical bond created at the very basic cellular level that lasts a lifetime and beyond. “Within weeks of conception, cells from both mother and foetus traffic back and forth across the placenta, resulting in one becoming a part of the other. ” from Microchimerish: how pregnancy changes a mother’s very DNA
This bond is much deeper than what was previously thought. Research has shown links at the cellular level deep in the brains, and the very beating hearts of mothers and their children, in every vital organ, and at the deepest mitochondrial level. Given that this permanent link is not only emotional, and spiritual, but also physical, how perverse and vile it is then, for anyone to set out to destroy this bond, which is at the heart of the very laws of God and nature!
Scientists have known of this deep physical link for well over a century. (Of course the great spiritual leaders of all eras have always honored and revered this bond.) “Evidence that cells travel from the developing foetus into the mother dates back to 1893, when the German pathologist Georg Schmorl found signs of these genetic remnants in women who had died of pregnancy-induced hypertensive disorder. Autopsies revealed ‘giant’ and ‘very particular’ cells in the lungs, which he theorised had been transported as foreign bodies, originating in the placenta. While Schmorl speculated that this sort of cellular transfer also took place during healthy pregnancies, it was not until more than a century later that researchers realised that these migrant cells, crossing from the foetus to the mother, could survive indefinitely.”
Motherhood not only sets in motion this crucial human bond, perfectly designed for the survival and protection of the human species, but it also forever alters every aspect of a woman-emotionally, spiritually, socially and physically. Science has also shown us that it prolongs her life. God and nature know what they are doing! Who are we to think otherwise? Children and grandchildren need their mothers not only for survival and nurturing, but for their long-term health and happiness, so when women become mothers, they are naturally re-designed to live longer in order to fulfill those needs in fulfillment of this natural destiny.
Since children’s cells are found deep in the cells of Mother’s brains, it is scientifically proven to be accurate for a Mother to say of her child, “You are a part of me”, and for any Mother living the horrors of corrupt, opportunistic misogyny separated from her child to speak as the French do when they say “Tu me manques” (You are missing FROM ME), rather than our more familiar American “I miss you”. For our children truly are missing from us. And we are missing from them.
“We all consider our bodies to be our own unique being, so the notion that we may harbor cells from other people in our bodies seems strange. Even stranger is the thought that, although we certainly consider our actions and decisions as originating in the activity of our own individual brains, cells from other individuals are living and functioning in that complex structure. However, the mixing of cells from genetically distinct individuals is not at all uncommon. This condition is called chimerism after the fire-breathing Chimera from Greek mythology, a creature that was part serpent part lion and part goat. Naturally occurring chimeras are far less ominous though, and include such creatures as the slime mold and corals.” “Scientific American: Scientists Discover Children’s Cells Living In Mother’s Brains
With some people today setting out to destroy this bond, we must recognize Maternal Deprivation for the grave physical destruction that it really is, for this holds implications so profound for not only the child and mother, but also that child’s future offspring, on the deepest cellular level, sending ripples for later generations. Science now provides us with hard, scientific data on how it is so harmful to the physical health and well-being of both mother and child.
But it is also well-documented that children and mothers separated from one another, even by great distances, continue to share a deep, vital, physical and psychic connection. Mothers intuitively sense keenly the emotions, pain, and the need for safety of their children from a long distance, without being informed directly; Mothers just “know”. We know to the deepest core of our being because Nature provides this deep, nurturing and protective bond for the survival of the human species.
“To carry and give birth to a baby, we make new spaces in our bodies — why not in our psyches as well?….Says one mother, “I think that if you allow it to happen, your mind and body become more sensitive during pregnancy and after — your antennae are out, so to speak.” In one very practical way, our “antennae” are out for the protection of our children. Caring for our babies, we have a stronger motivation for developing that sixth sense than we ever had before.” The Telepathic Link Between Mother and Child
And when once separated children and mothers reconnect, they share stories of specific instances in time when they felt very deeply the emotional messages from the other, comparing and verifying dates of thoughts and feelings being exchanged, because this profound connection at the deepest cellular level, is too powerful to be erased by anyone.
