Thoughts and emotions have a huge impact on our bodies.
Raising children in an intentional inspired way is fast becoming a goal of many parents.
Parenting is not an easy job but in my opinion it's the best job anyone could ever have. The children of today are the future of tomorrow. Today we have so many more tools available and so much more knowledge than when our parents were raising us. Such as the fact that our thoughts and emotions have a huge impact on our bodies. Author Dr. Bruce Lipton's research shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. Teaching children how to connect with what they are feeling is a valuable tool. So much of our society is based on shutting down our feelings and just dealing with life. That old saying "Just suck it up" can come back to haunt you. This can be a very harsh way of being. When we don't work through our feelings and emotions we can easily bury them inside our bodies and not even realize it creating many health problems later.
Help your children work through their feelings and teach them the importance of positive self talk. Practice in front of your children telling yourself "I love you" in the mirror. Or "I'm going to have a great day". Other affirmations you could say in the mirror in front of your kids may be.
"I am healthy, whole and complete". Have your children stand in front of the mirror and give themselves powerful affirmations to say. By doing this on a regular basis you empower your children and help them create a great inner self awareness and inner confidence that can continue through out their lives and maybe even create a new tradition from generation to generation.
Another powerful tool that is available to us now is the wisdom of "The law of attraction" and the knowledge and understanding of vibration, frequency and energy.
Everything is energy and emits a certain vibration. The vibration you put out aligns you up with more people or events that are resonating at the same vibrational frequency. You can change your vibrational frequency with practice. A good way to show an example to your child about how energy and vibrations work. One example is by discussing a time when you were out and about having a great time, and you came across someone who was sad or angry. Such as at the grocery store, an event or a relatives house. Maybe even in their classroom at school. How did that angry or sad person make your child feel? How did that person make everyone else in the room feel? This is a good way to talk about how our feelings and emotions radiate beyond our bodies. We extend our feelings and emotions onto those around us. Through practice we can control the way others make us feel and learn to raise our vibrational frequency to where we are comfortable in any situation.
The bottom line is to love your children, stay present with them, inspire them to try new things, explore their ideas and passions, If you have the money to travel great, if you don't explore places in your own city. Create alone time with them. Turn off your computer, cell phones and create a special place. I always liked reading to my boys a book every night before bed. This created a quiet space together that would generate a comfort zone that opened up a space for many great conversations. Have patience with them, never scream and yell at them. Teach them how to give and to receive. You could simply donate to a favorite charity, help grandma or another elderly person in your life to take out the trash or volunteer your time at a local no kill shelter. (Caution, we ended up adopting three pets from volunteering, no regrets though). Accept them for who they are! I love Dr. Wayne Dyers saying. "Your children are from you not for you". They are spiritual beings here having a human experience just like you. Give them the best foundation to start out on you can, give them empowering life long tools, open yourself up to learning from them and when the time comes set them free.
