An Energetic Clearing Tool To Teach Your Children



Water, it’s more than a life force, it’s a rejuvenator and a purifier. 

If you’ve followed the work of Dr. Emoto’s work in his book The Hidden Messages Of Water you already know how incredible water truly is. 


It does more than just keep us alive and cleanse us physically. It cleans our energy field as well. 


An excellent conscious living tool is to create a habit of visualizing all your stuck energy, stress, and anxiety going down the drain. 


Concentrate on the feeling of the water on your skin. In your minds eye see the water washing away your negative thoughts, anger, anxiety or any unwanted energy. 


See your chakras radiantly glowing with bright colors expanding out beyond your body. 


Release, knowing, unwanted energies are washing down the drain. 


This can also work while bathing, swimming and playing in water. Teach your children how to practice letting water clear the energy, becoming one of their treasured energetic tools.

Can your child reflect the energy of someone else in the room?
Intentional Conscious Parenting Kids Card Deck


Absolutely they can!
 
Children are their own little beings. They have good and bad days just like adults do, but they also have the uncanny ability to mirror a person in their environment taking on an energy of anger, fussiness and discontent. Maybe you've noticed this?
 
If your child is modeling someone else’s behavior nearby he/she might be unaware especially if he is young. Even babies often cry when in the environment of a confused, angry or aggressive personality. They also cry when they are fussy, hungry or need changing.

Kids Are Resilient And Have The Ability To Adapt Quickly.


Times are a changing, the thing is they are always changing. We can learn a lot from our kiddos. Kids are resilient, and have the ability to quickly adapt. Why? Because they live in the present moment.

Interview With Author Peggy Arndt



We are so happy to share with you our most recent author interview with Peggy Arndt. Dive in and be sure to post your comments or any questions you may have. Thanks for stopping by!

Carol And Stacy:
On your blog
MaxyourMind  you share Self-care tips, tools, techniques & neuroscience research for MIND, BODY & SOUL. We love that. It’s right up our alley! How did you get started down the path of neuroscience?

Peggy: I was a psychotherapist in private practice and I would read books and articles to keep up with the current science on therapy.  After reading a book on biology and violence, I realized there was a lot of research on the brain that I had missed. I began avidly reading neuroscience. I used what I learned both with myself and with my clients. 


Carol And Stacy: We see you have a book coming out called, “Neuroscience – Hacking Your Way to Happiness”, Can you share what inspired you to write this book?

Peggy: After my fellow psychotherapist Judy Westerfield and I retired, we decided to write the blog MAXyourMIND to share information on mental and emotional well-being we had used in a combined 60+ years of practice. We also focus on current neuroscience research.
