Our role as parents, grandparents, and teachers is to lead, guide, and walk beside our children. It is our privilege to help them become mature and capable adults, yet sometimes challenging curveballs are thrown at our children. The bumps in the road cause parents to want to do more to help their offspring more than they have in the past. Loving parents grasp for tools, resources, and inspiration that help children process:
Wise parents use prayer, faith, and hope to bring miracles into their children’s lives as they navigate life. These tools increase the positive energy and I have found the following will compliment what you are already using to help your children.
Our intentions can create needed and desired miracles! Wayne Dyer said, “You get what you intend to create by being in harmony with the power of intention, which is responsible for all of creation.” Where your thoughts go, energy flows. Notice where your mind goes when your children face challenges. Can you speak peace instead?
Our thoughts have energy and sensitive children pick up on this energy and often internalize whatever vibrations we are sending out. As new challenges pop up with each child, a parent spends time thinking about what is going on, how the situation is impacting their child, and what can be done. Kids pick up on these thoughts because EVERY THOUGHT HAS ENERGY TO IT! If you are thinking and analyzing a particular child’s current challenge, always end your thoughts with loving TRUTHFUL affirmations. Examples to use include:
Whether your child is a toddler or a child-adult, they need to be receiving positive energy and light flowing from you. There is so much negative energy flowing from the world to our posterity, we must do all we can to flow the truthful powerful and positive statements we can to combat the negative.
Children yearn to feel awesome and loved. Any child who can talk can repeat positive affirmations and this practice will bond the two of you. Planting the affirmations in a young child’s brain is equivalent to building a solid foundation in a new building. The building is added to brick by brick, but the foundation is the key to the building. Think of the phrases that run through your own head, don’t you want to be the one to plant the seeds that forever grow in your child’s mind? Effective affirmations to begin with include:
At our house, we effectively use affirmations to release negative energy in a few common situations. The process is extremely simple, yet it works. Here are two examples:
Drawing, dancing, reading, pretending, and imagining are just the beginning of creative activities you can do together. Any type of creating will feed your child’s spirit. Strive to allow your child to indulge in creative pursuits of all types. We were born to create! Engaging in any positive creative activity increases our energy because it allows our spirits to reconnect to our bodies and we feel replenished, recharged, and more capable.
Japanese researcher Masaru Emoto conducted numerous studies exploring the energetic power of certain attitudes and words. Love and gratitude were proven to be two of the strongest vibrations available. We all “love” our children and always carry that love for them. But did you know you can send your children that love in a way they can immediately feel?
I find it helpful to visualize my love in order to “send” it to someone. Picture all the love you have for your child, imagine his birth, the good moments you have had with him, the moments of pride as you watched him conquer new activities, and times where you knew he is a special gift from Heaven. Picture yourself just gathering pockets of love and putting them in a giant, ever-growing, overflowing basket or box. I then will mentally ask that Heaven add whatever love can be sent to my child. I picture sending the basket of love and my child opening it and receiving the love just like a special Christmas gift. Sometimes others are closed to our energy vibrations. In this case, I just leave the “gift” for the recipient by their bedroom door and let them know it is there as soon as they are ready to receive it. I have been amazed as I have sent “gifts of love” for my family members to receive. I find the recipient always feels more whole, more loving, and more at peace with the world.
A quick way to still send powerful energy to a child (or anyone!) is to just say, “I love you! I love you! I love you!” You can also send gratitude, “Thank you! I appreciate you! You are wonderful!”
Have you ever felt an unexpected connection to someone in the middle of a busy day? Perhaps they were either subconsciously or consciously sending good thoughts your way. Practice using these tools to help your children. You will find your children (no matter their ages) will appreciate remembering their true selves and worth as you shift the energy in your family. You can do it and I’m cheering you on!!
