Seeing The World Through The Eyes Of A Child
Parents today are often finding themselves frustrated with the schools, fed up with doctors, and at a loss as to what to do next to help their children. When in reality all these children are doing is just being the gifted wonderful being they were born to be. Our children are coming to this earth as very gifted dimensional beings but this is often misunderstood and labels are instead put on our kids such as ADD, ADHD, Autism, Aspergers, Bipolar, etc. However these children are not broken they are simply living in a higher vibration. If we could look into the heart of a child we would be amazed at what we would find and as you learn to understand your child you will be able to communicate with them on their level. You will quickly learn how to see the world through their innocent eyes.
As our first step to understanding our highly intuitive kids, I want you to play a game with me. For just one moment you’re going to sit, close your eyes, and pretend you are 7 again. Yes 7 years old. Feel it, taste it, squirm about a bit in your chair as you become 7 years old.
You are now in a classroom sitting at your little desk while the teacher shows you how two tiny yellow ducks are swimming in a blue pond and another little yellow duck comes along to play. Now there are three little yellow ducks in the blue pond. As the yellow ducks come and go your eyes drift to the window. WOW look at the swing out there! What fun your imagination sees!
Suddenly you are on that swing, lying on your belly as you fly through the air. Looking down you see the world as tiny ants. Now you jump up and you run out into the field and do a summersault landing on your back, you look up at the sky and one, two, three, big white clouds floating by, WAIT there is another one! That makes four white clouds. Your teacher interjects to bring you back to the ducks in question, completely interrupting your clouds. Now there are four yellow ducks in the blue pond and two get called home by mother.
Again drifting to the window, watching the bright sunlight, you notice a dark spot next to a tree. Hum, what could that mean? You are SURE that in that dark spot you will find Narnia! You can just see yourself walking through that darkened area and you know you will find fairies and unicorns there! You rush in to find them and suddenly you see two unicorns coming down the path and another one over by a tree! Two unicorns plus one more makes three unicorns! Wait until you tell your mother about this, this is just so awesome and…. The teacher draws your attention back to the class room. You are now being summoned up to the teacher’s desk to explain why you are not paying attention to her. She tells you she is sending a note home to your parents because of your rudeness of course. Your rudeness? She doesn’t even want to hear about the unicorns outside or the amazing adventures you knew you were going to have.
Now I want you to be YOU again and I want to ask you something. Have you never looked out your office window and wanted to get out early for the day? Or awakened in the morning and saw the bright sunlight and thought heck lets skip today’s chores and have a picnic? Yet we expect our children to sit still and listen to every word spoken to them with total attention when we struggle to keep ourselves focused on the facts and figures before us!
In the next article you will learn ways for your child to regulate their own anxiety. Self-calming is a great way for our children to feel empowered.
