Cosmic Cradle, Revised Edition: Spiritual Dimensions of Life before Birth (Paperback)


Special Order—Subject to Availability
Where was your soul before you were born? If your soul is immortal, did it have a "life" prior to birth? Did you choose your life and parents? Is reincarnation real? Elizabeth and Neil Carman, the authors of Cosmic Cradle, address these questions through interviews with adults and children who report pre-birth experiences (PBEs) not based on regression, hypnosis, or drugs. Instead, interviewees recall their pre-birth existence completely sober and awake.

In contrast to near-death experiences (NDEs), which have been well documented to show us what the soul experiences after death, PBEs throw light upon our lives before birth. People with NDEs sense that they "return home" when their spirits cross to the other side. What is the nature of this place we "return" to? PBEs suggest that we come from the same place we return to: we come from the Light and return to the Light. The same eternal "you" progresses through life before life, human life, and life after death.

This new edition of Cosmic Cradle explores your soul's journey into your mother's womb--where your soul comes from, the origin and purpose of your life, and the process by which you entered an earthly body. In pre-birth communications, parents meet a soul seeking to cross over from the heavenly realm to human birth. Persons with pre-birth memories recall existence in a luminous world before birth, in which they preview the upcoming life with a Divine Planner, and recall how they journeyed to their mothers' wombs.

Elizabeth Carman and Neil Carman have spent more than 45 years studying and practicing ways of helping the Earth to be a healthier, happier place. Combined, their efforts have spanned into the realms of social work and environmental protection. In the 1970s, Elizabeth Carman worked with minority families and did social service work in adoption and foster care. She later spent years teaching inner development courses and meditation. Prebirth research began in 1989 when she conducted interviews with mothers who were more in touch with their intuition. In 2002, Elizabeth received an honorary PhD for her research published in Cosmic Cradle: Souls Waiting in the Wings for Birth.

Neil Carman's love of nature led him to obtain advanced degrees including a doctorate in the biological sciences. After a research position opened his eyes to global pollution, he was led to pursue an environmental career. He taught in the biological sciences and also created a new university course on the growing evidence of how meditation techniques unfold our consciousness beyond what is generally recognized.

"Cosmic Cradle is such an enjoyable read and not just a dry esoteric or academic study. It is a beautifully crafted book with an almost universal appeal. Mothers will love it, fathers will be engrossed by it and grandparents will wonder at the cyclic patterns described by these young children."
—Peter J. Morris, alternative blogger, writer, researcher 

Cosmic Cradle is a must-read for everyone who has forgotten the life of their soul before birth. A penetrating and insightful inquiry into one of the greatest mysteries of existence—where we come from, who we are, why we are here, and why we forget.”
—Joan Borysenko, PhD, author of Seven Paths to God and Minding the Body, Mending the Mind

“Modern research into the nature of consciousness is revealing a consistent picture: consciousness is nonlocal or infinite in space and time. It is not confined to the brain, the body, or the present, as many have believed. Cosmic Cradle puts a human face on this research. This fascinating book will bring comfort to anyone concerned about our origins and destiny—and who isn’t?”
—Larry Dossey, MD, author of The One Mind, Reinventing Medicine, and Healing Words

Cosmic Cradle gives me chills of recognition. This book is the truth. And I found it both an affirmation and huge inspiration.”
—Christiane Northrup, MD, author of The Wisdom of Menopause and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

“I love the concept of Cosmic Cradle. It relates most completely to the unequivocal reality of reincarnation, an essential understanding of life. Pre-birth memories and memories of previous incarnations continue to help us understand our complex Cosmos.”
—C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD, author of Energy Medicine

Cosmic Cradle is a stunning achievement, comprehensive in scope, spiritually illuminating! In one stroke the authors have succeeded in lifting out of obscurity a world literature—ignored during the recent era of scientific materialism—representing virtually all cultures and religions from ancient to contemporary times.… This work of encyclopedic proportions is the rare fruit of forty years of passionate and scholarly exploration of human consciousness, the neglected
stepchild of twentieth-century psychology. Elizabeth and Neil Carman have thrown open a golden door.”
—David B. Chamberlain, PhD, author of Windows to the Womb: Revealing the Conscious Baby from Conception to Birth and The Mind of Your Newborn Baby

Cosmic Cradle gives us a wider lens through which to view the questions every child asks—where did I come from and how did I get here? Cosmic Cradle is fruitful reading for couples planning to have a child, for parents, and family life educators. Thank you Elizabeth and Neil Carman for compiling this tome!”
—Jeannine Parvati Baker, coauthor of Conscious Conception: Elemental Journey through the Labyrinth of Sexuality and author of Hygieia: A Woman’s Herbal and Prenatal Yoga and Natural Childbirth

“An extraordinary research work, yielding a quasi-encyclopedic treasury of evidence for the soul’s preexistence. Cosmic Cradle makes it clear that pre-birth communication has been known and recorded throughout history and across cultures worldwide.”
—Elisabeth Hallett, author of Stories of the Unborn Soul and Soul Trek: Meeting Our Children on the Way to Birth

Cosmic Cradle points out that the individual must search for the fulfillment of his own truth and depend upon that for his illumination. Cosmic Cradle is marvelous, a rare privilege, a tremendous teaching.… It opened new vistas and new horizons. It is a work of illumination. Thank you for the great opportunity to expand my consciousness.”
—Murshida Vera Justin Corda, PhD, founder of New Age Sufi Schools, author of Cradle in Heaven and Holistic Child Guidance

Cosmic Cradle offers an extraordinary collection of stories shared by families who experienced pre-birth memories and communication from both the parent’s and the baby’s points of view. Their portrayals of the incarnation process from spirit to human realms are supported in the
book by the timeless understandings nearly every culture has had—that we are conscious spiritual beings coming into human life with purpose and design. We are at a tipping point in Western thought, moving from Newtonian views into a consciousness-based understanding of our core
spiritual nature. Cosmic Cradle inspires us forward into the new, yet ancient wisdom of that core nature at the beginning of life.”
—Wendy Anne McCarty, PhD, RN, author of Welcoming Consciousness: Supporting Babies’ Wholeness from the Beginning of Life

Cosmic Cradle is a global mind transformer. Not only is it a masterpiece in how it is written with such clarity, interest, and organization, but the scope of its contents is pointedly destined to change our ideas about life. The evidence is stacked up too high in this book to dismiss its message of the soul’s immortality.”
—Susan Herzberger, author of On Becoming Enlightened

“I was amazed at the breadth and depth of the information which this book contains. It elevated my understanding of the subject to an entirely new level, and revolutionized my ideas, not only about the consciousness level of the in-utero baby but the extent to which mother and child can communicate and interact.”
—John W. Sloat, host of and author of A Handbook for Heretics

"Beauty, poetry, clarity: authentic convincing research."
—Reverend Lucille M. Rosen, PhD, director of Healing Process Workshops, New York
