I was at the lowest point of my fertility journey when I first met Walter Makichen, the renowned spiritual healer and author of Spirit Babies: How to Communicate with the Child You’re Meant to Have.
At the time, I’d been struggling to get pregnant for two years, and I had no idea why. With my first daughter, I’d gotten pregnant on the first try. But since a second pregnancy that had ended in miscarriage – again, after getting pregnant on the first try – my partner and I had been unable to conceive.
I was doing everything imaginable to support my fertility: Going to acupuncture, taking herbs, doing yoga, eating healthy, and seeing two reproductive endocrinologists who couldn’t find anything wrong with me or my partner—plus a few rounds of IUI and an attempt with fertility drugs that ended with more questions than answers. With every passing month, I felt more like a failure, like I must be doing something completely wrong.
Something inside of me knew that there was something deeper going on—that I wasn’t on the right path.
That feeling was my wakeup call.
Just as I was starting to lose hope, I went in for another appointment with my acupuncturist and opened up to her about how lost and confused I felt. She mentioned that I might be interested in working with a man she’d heard about, a sought-after healer who was known for connecting with “”spirit babies””—the souls of future children who were waiting to be welcomed into their new families.
As soon as I got home I looked at WaIter Makichen’s website and wrote to him to set up an appointment. Walter’s wife got back to me to confirm my appointment with Walter.
On our first call, I was nervous and wasn’t sure what to expect. As soon as I heard Walter’s warm and caring presence I was immediately put at ease. I’ll always remember the way he greeted me: “”Hey Nancy, it’s nice to meet you! How can I help you today?””
Before I knew it, the story of my painful miscarriage poured out of me. I told him of my grief and rage over losing the baby—a grief deeper than I could even understand—and my struggle to get pregnant since then.
Walter listened intently, was quiet for a moment, and then set himself up to do his channeling.
The first thing Walter tuned into was my spirit baby, who we named Grace. Here are some of the things Walter said about spirit baby Grace.
“”This female entity is a good match. She’s a real mix. She’s shy and reserved on purpose. She’s a very powerful being.””
“”She’s a sensitive being. She’s sensitive to you and your needs. She is quite reactive to environmental factors. It’s easy for her to miscarry. Anything that shocks her, shocks you on some level. So, it’s easy to miscarry.””
“”She really wants to be with you because she knows you will give her permission to be who she is.””
Walter also tapped into my energy and was spot-on with everything he said. Here are some of the things Walter said about me in our first appointment.
“”You have a strong mental energy. If you could think yourself through all of this, you would have done it already.””
“”Your body is very sensitive and doesn’t want to be fooled with.””
“”You often hear the emotion under what people are saying.””
“”You have a good nurturing energy. You have a natural healing channel and it would make this entity feel very welcome and this is something she really needs.””
Walter also helped me to understand why I was so incredibly devastated after Grace miscarried. He said, “”Nancy, Losing this baby was like losing a spouse for you. That’s how connected you were to this entity.””
Spirit baby Grace knew that I could help her because of my own sensitivity and intuition, and this was a big part of why she was so drawn to me.
But Walter was very clear that this process wasn’t just about connecting with baby Grace—it was about connecting more deeply with myself. It was about doing the work to align with my true path in life—which meant learning to fully own the parts of myself that I had been ignoring and neglecting.
Walter repeatedly told me how intuitive and sensitive I was, and that being pregnant with Grace would open me up even more in terms of my sensitive nature and intuitive capabilities. Grace wanted to make sure that I would be okay with this.
Walter also helped me see that I needed to change my approach. My mind wasn’t going to win the battle on fertility! If I simply let go of thinking my way through it, he said, I might have a chance of conceiving. I needed to let go of control and surrender to something greater.
I also needed to see my journey through a wider lens. I had thought my miscarriage was the end of the world, but with Walter’s help, I could finally see that it was helping me on my soul’s path. It forced me to shatter all the old beliefs, patterns and outdated versions of myself that I couldn’t continue to carry around with me if I was to become who I really am—and to finally become a mother again.
With Walter’s help, I was able to start putting the pieces of myself back together, which allowed me to not only welcome my beautiful younger daughter into the world, but also to start embracing my intuitive gifts.
My fertility journey completely cracked me open, and that first appointment with Walter was the turning point.
I left our session with a sense of hope, and a way to start connecting with my spirit baby on a deeper level. Within a year, my partner and I conceived our second daughter.
After many years of mentorship with Walter, I’m proud to carry on his work through my Energetic Fertility Method™ program and spirit baby readings.
If you’d like to connect with your spirit baby, I encourage you to schedule a spirit baby reading.
