One of my biggest lessons in life is that personal happiness and wellness are inside jobs. We really do have everything we need in order to live an incredible life, including a chakra system that has exceptional wisdom and an ability to balance and heal itself.
But what about our children?
As mums, we have a unique connection to our child. It begins in utero, with the umbilical cord and continues on an energetic level, sustaining and nourishing our child as they grow with a special form of energy.
We are in the unique position of being responsible for the early development of our children’s energetic bodies. Our actions directly impact and affect the growth of their chakra systems.
It sounds like an enormous responsibility doesn’t it?
(It certainly feels that way to me at times).
The good news is that you are no doubt, already doing a lot to support your child’s energetic development. Affection, engagement, encouragement and the gift of your continued presence are some of the greatest gifts we can provide.
This isn’t about being the perfect parent either. It’s about empowering ourselves with the knowledge that there’s so much we can do, to ensure our children grow a healthy chakra system.
How do we support the development of our children’s chakra system?
The development of our psyche and emotional nature takes place in the early years of our lives Chakras develop sequentially from bottom to top, as a child matures from birth to adulthood.
I highly recommend this article by American therapist and Chakra specialist, Judith Anodea. She provides an in-depth overview of the chakras and their childhood developmental stages, with simple advice for parents on how to support the unfolding of these important areas in a child's life.
It’s a really long blog though, so I wanted to offer you an alternative version that can quickly return to as needed:
Root Chakra: Womb to 1 year Embodiment, Attachment and Nourishment.
Sacral Chakra: 6 to 18 months Allow Separation and Attachment, Support Exploration and Reflect Emotions.
Solar Plexus Chakra: 18 months to 3 years Autonomy, Self-Esteem, Toilet Training, Discipline.
Heart Chakra: Ages 4 – 7 Modelling Relationships, Empathy and Moral Behaviour.
Throat Chakra: Ages 7 – 12 Support Communication, Exploration and Creativity.
Third Eye Chakra: Adolescence, Identity and Opportunity.
Crown Chakra: Early Adulthood and beyond. By the time your son or daughter has reached the seventh chakra stage, your influence will be minimal. This stage can be characterised as ‘letting go’.
An end note:
I’ve yet to meet a single person who does not carry some pain, hurt, or trauma from their childhood. As human beings, it’s inevitable that we will continue to make mistakes as parents. We will disappoint our kids even with the best intentions!
There is also the probability that our children are at risk of continuing our own issues and childhood traumas. Letting go at the right pace on every level seems to be the mark of positive parenting. Promoting their growth and ability to move towards independence, while ensuring that their energetic connection remains grounded and stable.
As I mentioned earlier, this isn’t about perfect parenting, it’s simply about doing our best!
