Art of Parenting

There are many sources of advice to parents and prospective parents. Some of the advice given here is in agreement with others. The unique advice is based on the theory of Microchakra™ Psychology. This theory describes the two non-material bodies, which pervade our physical body and have a direct effect upon its functioning. One non-material body is the “subtle” body. It is the source of our feelings. The other is the “causal” body. It is the source of our thoughts.

Microchakra Psychology emphasizes human growth and development and places particular emphasis on the “right channel age.” In girls, this is the first three years and, in boys, the first three and one-half years. During the forty weeks of pregnancy, tri-fold energy accumulates in the head. It is a combination of male, female and neutral energy. Beginning at birth, this energy slowly descends the right channel of the subtle body. This channel runs the length of the spinal column. As the energy descends, it opens the micro chakras, which connect with it, if it encounters no obstructions. The latter may leave the microchakra blocked or partially blocked. Open microchakras contribute to a healthy vibrant personality. Blocked microchakras cause impaired personality functioning.

More on parenting and  the “right channel age" may be found  in Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar book  (Chapters 4, 5 6 and 7) : 

Microchakras: Innertuning for Psychological Well-being, co-authored with Prof. David Isaacs, PhD in psychology. The book was  published in English and in French in 2009 and 2013 respectively.

Better parenting requires doing as much as possible to maximize the opening of the 49 microchakras during the right channel age. Here are some suggestions:

During birth, find ways to squat in warm water.

Whenever possible, breastfeed the baby when you hear a hungry cry.

Provide the baby with a small oval shaped well-cushioned bed that can easily fit in a double bed. The baby should sleep between the parents for the first 40 weeks. After that, a crib can be placed next to the parents’ bed. After the right channel age, the child will probably ask for his own bed. 

If you decide on circumcision, be sure that the baby receives an anesthetic before surgery. Babies do have feelings despite the views of some “authorities” who should know better.

Do not worry about “spoiling” a baby during the right channel age. Instead, treat them like a prince or princess. If the baby cries, it is because something is needed.

After birth, mother should take off from work for as long as possible (up to 40 weeks).

Provide the baby with frequent whole-body massage. Use organic coconut oil in summer and almond oil in winter. Do this massage for 10 minutes then bath. You will have a happy, healthy, smiling radiant baby.

Make the new babies feel part of the family. At night, never put them away alone. Babies raised with unconditional love will be able to offer unconditional love as adults.

Many parents, for some reason or another, feel guilty for not having done enough for their children. Doing the right thing, both day and night, will provide contentment—not guilt.

(by Debrah Goudreault, Artist, Writer, Founder of and a student of Shyamji Bhatnagar’s breakthrough work with Sound and evolving the Self)


"A parent's creative process does not end with conception or birth. What we paint upon the minds of an infant or child in their early years of life through our actions, words, feelings and thoughts will either nurture or limit the realization of their true human potential.  It will either strengthen or weaken their ability to excel in a world of rapidly transforming energies and forces, and determine whether they will be the bearers of more destruction or the co-creators of a more sustainable and harmonized Earth.  In facing the physical, financial and emotional demands of giving birth, we often forget that parenting is more than instinct or repeating the patterns of how we were raised.  We may forget that giving birth gives us a precious choice to either refine, evolve beyond, or recreate the conditioning of our own past. We may overlook the fact that parenting is not just the process of raising a child. It is also an opportunity for raising our own awareness, and growing our capacity for unconditional love, where as parents we too can become canvases of more unbound and often unfathomed capacity. 

Every child is born with unlimited potential, but what limits that? Is it only genetics, economics, health standards, and access to education? Has managing these factors alone given us a human evolution with which we are content?  How do we nurture the capacity within ourselves to parent in a way that creates whole, unencumbered children who don’t spend the majority of their lives seeking what was not given to them as a child, or fighting fears with a need to dominate because of unresolved insecurities? What is required for a child to manifest their unique capacity, and become a healthy, harmonizing force of Light and integrative intelligence for themselves and others? How do we create children whose lives are spent healing humanity and the Earth and illuminating every field of human endeavor, rather than breaking the frame of limiting ideas and patterns imposed in their infancy and youth? How do we establish the most effective conditions possible for raising a child equipped to create and serve in a way that advances themselves and all humanity? The answers to how we fulfill that responsibility will not be found in our current social culture, sciences, or educational institutions. However, it is something Shyamji Bhatnagar, the founding visionary of Microchakra Psychology has spent decades researching, teaching and implementing worldwide. 

As a measure of advancing civilization, societies are establishing earlier and earlier Pre-K institutional learning environments for children without fully understanding their impact, while more evolved and involved parenting and a sensitively aware approach to child development remains a critical and relatively overlooked variable. Our planet is in a cycle of transformation, and humanity is seeking to unfold and develop. Greater energies and intelligence, opportunities and possibilities are within our grasp if we understand how to uncover and integrate all dimensions of the self, and how to keep the network of the self open from birth.   Microchakra Psychology gives us more in-depth practices and an advanced approach to parenting and child development through which we ourselves grow in greater awareness and sensitivity, while preparing our children not just to excel intellectually, but in a way that transforms what we know of the self and gives birth to a generation with a greater capacity to free humanity from its disharmony and suffering.”  © Deborah A Goudreault 2021 All Rights Reserved.
