Saturday I was at the Australian Paranormal and Spiritual Expo in Casula. I had many visitors attracted to four books I brought about the emotions ‘happy, angry, sadness and scared’. They told me their kids are having difficulties with the emotions anger, sadness and fears, they are having issues with sleeping (fear of the dark and nightmares) but also they see dead people. Most kids are very sensitive and their sensory system (see, hear, sense, taste and smell) is wide open. They can get overwhelmed easily with what enters their energy system. You can help them to deal with this and make them use their sensitivity as a powerful tool for themselves to become happier.
The most important exercises to start teaching them, are:
- Protect yourself in a bright white light or golden ball of light around you (you can do this by visualising yourself into a big ball around you from over your head till under your feet)
- Anchor yourself into the centre of mother earth (you can do this by visualising a golden chord starting to grow from your lowest part of your spine downwards, through all layers of the earth, until it’s very deep in the centre of mother earth where you visualise to fasten it and pull it tight)
If you teach them to do these exercises daily if they wake up and when they go to bed, it’s becoming a healthy habit. It’ll also help kids to sleep better, because they are protected from lower energies to connect with them.
Are you as a parent very sensitive? Then these exercises will also help you to protect your energy and feel more stable in life because you’re firmly anchored in the earth. Anchoring or grounding in the earth is helpful to be more in the here & now and to have more calmness in your head (instead of the busyness with hundreds of thoughts going around constantly).
Sensitive kids are also often empathic too; they sense or know or feel how others are feeling. If another kid is feeling angry, they’ll probably want to stay out of the way, but if another kid is feeling sad or afraid they’ll mostly want to help. Sensitive kids can be shy or modest and can have fears to stand up for themselves or to be assertive. It’s beautiful when you can teach them to express their feelings in a positive way. You can talk with them about the four emotions; sadness, fears, anger and happiness. Ask them for examples when they experience these emotions. Ask how they feel when they’re happy. And how they feel when they’re angry, sad or afraid. Teach them it’s okay to have these emotions. You can teach them to say out loud ‘I’m angry’, ‘I’m sad’, or ‘I’m afraid’, when they experience these emotions and feel in a safe environment. Practise this at home and be a good role model. You can teach them to take some time for themselves to handle or integrate their emotions. For example to say ‘I’m angry and I need some time to let this feeling go. I’ll be back in ten minutes to play with you, or talk further with you again’. You’re helping your kids to express their emotions and to release them. Give your kids compliments when you notice they’re using these new skills.
Explain your kids that their feelings and emotions are important. Make them conscious about what they are feeling and that they create their intuition with that, a sixth sensory that is very special and handy. This intuition can help them with being happier by trusting their feelings and acting upon them. An example: if they feel they can’t trust someone in class to share their deepest feeling, then they won’t tell this person. Or if they see another kid sitting lonely, they can invite this kid to play with them. Or if they feel another kid is sad, they can join this kid during break time and ask what happened and if they can help. I personally like this idea of a world where we teach our kids how to handle their emotions, how to talk about emotions and feelings, and how to respect everyone for who they are. It’s something human and normal. If we adults, use all these tips too and practise this daily, we’re helping the world to become a happier place.
