My baby loves people! Always the good host, my baby will entertain, smile at, and delight anyone we are with. Initially, I thought I had an extrovert on my hands. It was a little scary since I tend more toward introversion. I need to be around people, but only in small doses and I don’t do small talk very well. I was a little concerned about how I would nurture an extrovert. Turns out my baby is an energetically sensitive ambivert. Are you one too?
Ambiverts are a mix of extroverted and introverted tendencies. For my baby, things are great during the party, but afterwards is another story. The time after the party is typically filled with uncontrollable crying if the proper energetic support is not given. Mommy-baby alone time is typically required for a day or so to recover from big events.
This happens to a lot of us, I think. We tend to pick up the energy of the environment without noticing. It can change our moods and our energy levels, if we’re not careful. Babies are especially sensitive.
So, how do you know if your baby is energetically sensitive? Some things I have noticed are:
I always do my best to respect my baby’s wisdom rather than force engagement in an interaction or environment that does not seem to suit my baby.
But what about the crying after your baby has gleefully interacted with other people all day? Some people will say that the baby is just “overstimulated” and “tired” - which is probably the case. But there might be something more. Your baby may be holding on to energy and emotions that do not belong to him/her.
That is why I like to clear my baby’s energy after parties or after being in environments or around people that made my baby seem uncomfortable. Here’s how you can do it too:
Release energetic attachments
Your baby is so full of love and life that people might want to “plug in” to that. It’s not malicious - they just love your baby so much! Close your eyes and see if you imagine any cords being plugged into your baby like an outlet. Pull them out with your mind and put them back where they go - re-plugging half into God/Source and half into the Earth. Do this until you don’t imagine any more cords in your baby.
Energy clearing/refilling meditation
Close your eyes and imagine a tube going from the bottom of your baby’s spine into the center of the Earth. Imagine all of the energy and emotions that your baby no longer needs or that do not belong to your baby looking like sludge and draining out of your baby into the center of the Earth. When all that is gone, release the tube and imagine a beautiful cloud forming above your baby. Ask that all your baby’s energy (that might have been borrowed by others or given to others by your baby) come back into the cloud and ask that God’s energy fill the cloud as well. Watch as the beautiful liquid light showers down on your baby, filling him/her and healing the areas that cords were plugged into. Watch as it fills the area around your baby nourishing and healing your baby’s aura and creating a protective force field. All done! Open your eyes.
Rub with a spoon
Use a stainless steel spoon to rub circles on the bottom of your baby’s feet. This helps energetically ground your baby. It’s great to do before bedtime too! My baby loves this! A little goes a long way.
The first two are great to do on the car ride home from parties and family visits. It’s really great if you do these things on yourself to clear your own energy before clearing your baby’s. The spoon exercise is a quick and easy thing to do anytime your baby seems out of sorts.
You may also want to do the energy clearing and refilling meditation BEFORE visiting people - with a special emphasis on reinforcing the “force field”!
Best wishes to you and your baby!
