“Virtue has a veil.” Victor Hugo
My daughter was born with a caul, or a hood, or a veil over her face. She is what is correctly termed a Caulbearer, or the one “born behind the veil.”
It is estimated that only one out of 80,000 babies are born with a caul – delivered at birth with some amnion membrane covering the face.
In many cultures, a Caulbearer is believed to be blessed, destined for greatness or to have a special destiny, to possess psychic abilities and be a bringer of good luck. They are said to be able to predict changes in weather patterns, find underground water supplies and are natural healers.
The caul itself is purported to be a talisman against drowning, a personal protection against the evil-eye and an object that brings good luck in business.
For the longest time, I didn’t know about the existence of Caulbearers, stumbling upon this topic only recently, but perhaps not accidentally.
It is fascinating to know that there are such beings among us.
