Your 4 Month Old Baby
Your 4 month old baby is affected by energy influences coming from the same 4 sources I have discussed before. Once again, I will comment on the following four categories: Historical, Environmental, Current and Blueprint.
In addition, even though the time that has elapsed since your baby was 2 months old is quite short, there has been a significant change in your baby's development and awareness.
Historical Energy Influence
Your 4 month old baby has to continue to make energy adjustments on a daily basis. He or she has gone through the prenatal, birth, newborn and 2 month old time periods and they must build on this "lifetime experience" they have attained so far.
If there were certain events that happened during those previous stages of development that resulted in energy changes, it is very easy to see where those patterns might persist and cause problems later on.
Once again, prevention is something to be emphasized and using energy medicine techniques like BodyTalk can really help with this.
You can do a lot to help with this process by simply recognizing what your 4 month old has experienced, and how this may influence their outlook on the world.
Recall how much your 4 month old has progressed in just a few weeks and reinforce this fact in your own mind,
with your actions, and in your conversations with other family members.
Those events and influences that took place in the prenatal,
birth, newborn and 2 month old time periods impact the energy pattern that your 4 month old baby is using.
Environmental Energy Influence
Keep in mind that the daily energy pattern that they are exposed to now is assumed to be "normal" and is further expected to continue that way. This means that feeding, sleeping, activity in the house, sounds in their environment, people visiting, riding in the car, etc., all take on the meaning of normalcy to them.
Of course, in reality they are changing by the day and out of necessity will have to "go with the flow" and change as required in order to learn new things, skills, movements and ways of communicating.
Also, remember that anything that is having an impact on the mother (and father) will
necessarily cause energy changes and shifts in the pattern for the baby as well.
Your 4 month old baby is likely to have certain aspects of their current energy pattern which stay more or less the same, and others that change from day to day or minute to minute.
Current Energy Pattern
This seeming paradox is normal. It is how your baby's nervous system learns to differentiate the constant from the changing, the familiar from the new, and the safe from the dangerous.
Ideally you want your baby to learn to have balance. This means some of the time they will adhere to patterns that are routine, and other times they will have the flexibility to shift and change their pattern when needed.
As part of their current energy expenditure pattern, your 4 month old baby should be doing some of these developmental activities
Don't be alarmed if your baby is not doing every single one of these things. Each baby, including your own, has a unique pattern of growth and development and whose timing is set to their own schedule.
I have included the 6 month age range so you can be on
the lookout for these new abilities coming up in the near future. Your expectation and excitement will have an energy influence on your baby and I think it is
good to anticipate what your baby is going to accomplish soon.
Blueprint Energy Pattern
When I refer to your 4 month old baby's blueprint, I'm talking about their underlying pattern that they are modeling themselves after.
This pattern comes from a combination of genetics and family history, but I believe it is even more complicated than that.
In the energy medicine system, just the fact that we are living in this world alters how our underlying blueprint is able to function.
An example would be a mother who works nights. Her underlying blueprint almost surely is designed to operate on the normal circadian rhythms and light and dark cycles which have an effect on hormones as well as many other body chemistry components. Given the necessity of complying with a work schedule in order to support the family, this part of her blueprint can be over-ridden but it will not be without consequences.
Your baby is no different; it's just that the compensation and altering of the pattern will not be obvious in most cases. Just be aware that your baby is
making energy adjustments all the time, balancing the needs of the moment (current energy pattern) with their underlying outline (blueprint energy pattern).
This graphic below sums up what we're talking about:
Putting It All Together
One way to get in tune with what your baby is experiencing is simply to put yourself in their place and imagine what is going through their little nervous system.
Can you imagine how your baby feels content and safe when things are happening around them that are familiar?
And can you imagine how your baby might react to new situations, or new sounds or new people in their environment?
Keep referring back to what they have experienced so far as their baseline and project into the near future what they will be contending with and see both processes as normal and expected.
This will help pave the way for your 4 month old to continue to learn and grow.
