How many people have left their DNA in us? Any baby we've or our mother ever conceived, even ones we've miscarried unknowingly. During pregnancy, cells sneak across the placenta in both directions. The fetus's cells enter the mother, and the mother's cells enter the fetus. A baby's cells are detectable in the mother's bloodstream as early as four weeks after conception, and a mother's cells are detectable in her fetus by week 13. At the end of the pregnancy, up to 6 percent of the DNA in a pregnant woman's blood plasma comes from the fetus..
Yesterday I did a Telephone Constellation for a client that has suffered with extreme anxiety her entire life. In the interview many issues came to light that I identified as a Systemic Source for the anxiety. Realizing this, my intention became to resource the client in this first Constellation. Sifting through all the difficult events she and her parents experienced, the fact that her mother had four miscarriages before her birth felt the most prominent to me.

Certainly the client could be carrying her mother’s trauma and anxiety of losing four children before her birth. But as the Constellation unfolded the most amazing aspect was the fact that each of the miscarriages exhibited unique traits, or energies that the client has felt and dealt with her entire life, some supportive, and some difficult. One by one, we discovered each miscarried sibling passed on something unique to the client that has had a profound effect on her life. This was an extraordinary experience for the client. As we ended she experienced a deep sense of peace. As well, she had a renewed bond with her mother for the first time since she was age two, and a deep supportive connection to four siblings that she never knew, that she knew.
