Ayurveda: Consciously Creating Children
Are you putting as much energy into creating your children’s bodies as you did your business?
What wise individual would want to start a new life, that will be completely dependent upon them for at least 18 years, that is beset with problems that could have so easily been avoided?
For a moment, pause and ponder the following thoughts to see where you fall on the consciously-creating meter. Even this small act will provide your future baby with so much more potential than if no conscious attention was placed on the act of creation. My partner and I purposefully chose to face each other and ourselves before bringing a new life into the mix.
- We have chosen to first take care of our physiology in a way that results in the greatest possible health.
- I am willing to put the additional effort forward to nurture the amazing little body I wish to create.
- As a couple we are able to converse and envision a lifestyle we are both enlivened by.
- I know a huge red flag to my child’s success is if there is endless fighting and discontent between my partner and me. A developing child would then come into an environment that is conflicted and thus they would naturally assume that conflict and strife are the way of life. Instead of gravitating to easy, uplifting choices, they will unconsciously always be drawn to conflict.
Can you identify these statements as true for you? Or is it possible that you could prevent uncomfortable experiences by exploring further?
Let’s take a look at health studies that connect with lifestyle stress and pregnancy: “Uncontrolled hyperglycemia during pregnancy is potentially harmful to both mother and fetus, resulting in a greater need for Caesarian-section deliveries, delivery of larger infants with more excess body fat, a greater risk of infant death, and stillbirth, and an elevated risk of infant hypoglycemia immediately after birth. (WJD)”
When we have to work for the things we want, we value them much more than when they were handed over to us. As business women we know this to be true. Ultimately, all we need for success is access to wisdom that allows us to make the best choices possible.
It offers the choice to be aware of the proper functioning of the nervous system and align the parents’ lives to best support the health and wellbeing of their bodies first so that the child’s life is naturally endowed with abundance and vitality.

The way to restore or enliven proper functioning to the parent’s body comes from the five-thousand-year-old wisdom also known as the science of longevity. Strength and health are supported through the proper digestion of not only food but all experiences in the day to day life. The imbalance of the five elements expressed through what Ayurveda calls the three Doshas allows a consultant to discover where the individual could either engage with or refrain from certain uses of the senses. It is important to note that each person is looked at uniquely in Ayurveda as this science considers this to be the ultimate truth. We are each quite different and thus need a unique approach to health and longevity.
Through mindful consideration, Ojas (life force) grows in the parents’ bodies and will naturally give the very best to the child they desire to create. This is very much the choice to create from abundance and security, rather than haphazardly which often leads to insecurity and fear in the child. The balance of the three Doshas is essential to help prevent disease, promote good health, and improve the possibilities of a healthy conception, a healthy pregnancy, a normal delivery, and a healthy happy mom and child.
Consciously creating life doesn’t just start from the preconception but is a continuous process during all three trimesters and after the baby is born. Unsurprisingly, Ayurveda also considers the father/partner’s role in conception, pregnancy, birth, and life. There are a variety of ways to accomplish this and it is best to work with someone trained in this particular form of Ayurveda.
The most touching part is that there is still hope for those that may have chronic challenges. Ayurveda’s main function is to take healthful actions that give the very best to the parents’ bodies first, naturally resulting in more endowment to their offspring. This is most certainly the foundational desire of any wise mother and father, to give the very best to their children so they can live the very best lives.
