Sailing Into the Light

There is no better time to read a story to a friend or a loved one than when they are leaving this body and making their transition into the next Life. It is a time that can frighten us or fill us with sadness for our impending loss. If we can fill our hearts and minds with loving words and images of a Life beyond this Life, it can soothe us and the dear one we wish to help on their journey. Don’t wait to read a eulogy after your Loved One is gone. Read a short story—a metaphor—inspired by a poem almost 200 years old. A sailing ship leaves the shore and as well-wishers shout their goodbyes, those on a distant shore chime their welcome. Ease the journey of anyone you care about by reading Sailing into the Light aloud to them.

About the Author

Susan Highsmith

I’m a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who earned a PhD in Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology in her 60s. I learned that babies in the womb are conscious and aware! They love to hear their mothers’ voices and remember stories that were read to them while they were in utero. My fairy tales are intended to be read to them, acknowledging their presence, growth and development in delightful ways that let them know that they are loved through the stages of conception, gestation and birth. I mentor childbirth educators and make presentations at international conferences promoting the awareness of conscious babies in the womb.

Babies Know
$12.00
Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology is a multidisciplinary approach that explores in depth the biological, psychological, mental, emotional, and social development of babies as they grow into unique individuals through their relationship with caregivers. It honors the essence of life throughout the entire lifespan, and emphasizes the significance of the earliest formative relationship, which create the foundation for all subsequent interactions with others.
Shhhh . . . Can You Hear the Songs of Angels?
$21.99
Shhhh . . . Can You Hear the Songs of Angels? is a love story. It is for every child. It is designed to acquaint children with natural sounds, even the sound of silence. Children can learn to be still and listen to external sounds ~ and internal ones. What a gift to have your child settle, to listen attentively, to play a game of listening for sounds often lost in the busyness of modern life. Let your children tell you about what they hear. Perhaps it will be sounds you have learned to tune out. Perhaps it will be Songs of Angels.
The Best Bedtime Story Ever
$21.99
Do you want to improve your child’s behavior? An undiscovered window to guiding your children is open while they sleep! During this time your child’s developing ego-mind is quiet and cannot disagree or talk back. This is an open door for a caring parent to suggest alternative thoughts, feelings, and actions. A belief that your child holds like “Kids pick on me,” becomes “Other children treat you with kindness,” or “Other kids like you,” or simply, “You are loved.” As a parent, you can generate affirmations of love, kindness, and happiness in the minds of your children. This is a sacred trust. Your children are watching, listening, and imitating you and other role models throughout each day. Sleep is a time to suggest the best to your children to enhance their self-esteem and their regard for others.

The First Fairy Tale III: Making Sense
$19.99$24.99
Parents have always recognized that reading to their children is a good idea. In fact, even respected authorities like Albert Einstein have recommended reading fairy tales to children. Ancient cultures have told stories and sung songs to children-even while the children were being carried in the wombs of their mothers. Current research is now proving that babies hear while in- utero, and they remember the stories and songs they heard! The First Fairy Tales are a series of stories that portray an idyllic journey. From the compelling union of masculine and feminine energies (The First Fairy Tale I: The Adventure Begins), throughout the development of the heart (The First Fairy Tale II: The Awakening Heart), and now to the magnificent assemblage of a body and senses ready to be born into the light (The First Fairy Tale III: Making Sense), each fairy tale describes an ideal passage that prepares Little Ones for a successful transition surrounded with love and traversed with ease. In Joy, read these fairy tales to your Little One while you are pregnant. Your baby will get the idea! Your Little One will hear and internalize a model of a journey in which obstacles are overcome and development is both fun and awe-inspiring. Your baby will hear your voice conveying how much you appreciate the creative process being undertaken and will sense your anticipation of holding this Precious One in your arms. It is never too soon to begin communicating with your Little One who may be saying, "Tell me a story. I'm here, and I'm listening!"
The First Fairy Tale IV: Welcome to the Light
$19.99$24.99
This is the fourth fairy tale in the series of stories designed to be read to babies while in mothers’ wombs. Each of these tales is a metaphor for a part of the journey a new baby is undertaking to come into mother’s arms. Reading these stories enhances the bond, the tie between mommy and baby, between parent and child. This is falling in love with your baby. What greater gift can you give to your child while s/he is in your womb? Reading to baby acknowledges the consciousness and innate wisdom within the growing embryo. What greater gift can a father, grandmother, caring relative or friend, give to a pregnant woman than to support the bond between a mother and her unborn baby? Research reveals that newborns remember stories that were read to them while they were in utero because they respond positively to the particular stories they heard. The First Fairy Tale: Book IV welcomes babies around the world as they come into the light. Read this tale to your baby before birth and continue to read it to your newborns and toddlers as they grow. Build your bond with your baby before and after birth-it’s never too early.

She is a seeker of truth and spiritual wisdom, a lover of science and knowledge, a caring mother and grandmother, and a qualitative researcher. The Renaissance of Birth is the culminating tapestry of her perspectives as she leads us through a deeply meaningful quest to understand how we bring in our children-how we conceive, carry and birth our babies-past-present-future.
