In the book, Missionaries of the Light, inspired by Dr. Andre Luiz, psychographed by Chico Xavier, I read where the process of building your body up for full independence in your new reincarnation takes seven years. From the time of your birth to you seventh birthday, you will have a guardian spirit looking out for you. Constant attendance is the norm for children seven and under.
Andre Luiz’s mentor explains thusly;
“You are aware that the human body has its vegetative activities per se, but you may not yet know that the perispiritual body, which gives form to the cellular elements, is strongly rooted in the blood. In the fetal organization, the blood elements are a gift from the mother’s body. Soon after rebirth, a period of a different assimilation of organic energies takes place, where the reincarnated ‘self’ rehearses the consolidation of its new experiences. In this new cycle of physical life, it is only at age seven that it can begin to preside on its own over the blood formation process, which is the basic element for the equilibrium of the perispiritual body or pre-existent form. Blood, therefore, can be regarded as the divine fluid that underpins our activities on the physical plane, and through its continual flow within the physiological organism, it furnishes us with a symbol of the eternal movement of the sublime energies of the Infinite Creation.” [Missionaries of the Light, pp. 219-220]
I had read the book once before, but I had missed this detail. A child’s body is still forming to its spiritual outline until around seven years of age. Mother’s out there reading this, the cutting of the umbilical cord is just a symbol, your vital energies (love, of course is always there!) still assists your child years after their birth. What was wonderful discovery to behold.
