The soul understands that life is a school, and it wishes to return to that school to perfect itself. When the soul wishes to return to that school of life to perfect itself, when the soul wants to return to the world, then the Angels of Destiny take that soul away to a new home. The Angels of Destiny unite with the soul or, we should say, connect the soul with the spermatozoon of the father’s semen. This spermatozoon—chosen by the soul who is going to be born—fertilizes the womb. The soul stays within the maternal womb for nine months, forming its new physical body.
The soul is not a prisoner, however, for it can enter and leave the maternal womb and its body at will. After nine months, the soul is born with a new child’s body. -Samael Aun Weor, Mysteries of Life and Death
Objective imagination is in itself essentially creative; inventors could never have conceived the telephone, the radio, the airplane, etc., without objective imagination.
The imagination of the woman during her pregnancy is fundamental for the development of the fetus. It has been demonstrated that every mother can, with her imagination, alter the psyche of the fetus.
Thus, it is essential during her pregnancy for the woman to contemplate beautiful paintings, sublime sceneries, and listen to classical music and harmonious words. Thus, she will harmoniously influence the psyche of the baby she carries within her womb.
During their pregnancy, women must not drink alcohol or smoke, nor must they contemplate ugly things, nor unpleasant things, nor inharmonious things, nor disgusting things, etc.
There is the need to learn how to excuse all the caprices and errors of pregnant women, since many intolerant men—because of the lack of true comprehension—become enraged and hurt their pregnant women. This is how the sorrows of these women—their afflictions caused by their uncharitable husbands—have not only physical but also psychological repercussions upon the fetus that is in gestation.
Thus, considering the power of creative imagination, it is logical to affirm that during her pregnancy the woman must not contemplate anything ugly, disagreeable, disharmonious, filthy, etc. -Samael Aun Weor, Fundamentals of Gnostic Education
