Parenting With Passion: Keep Yourself Alive By Dr. Lara Honos-Webb
This isn’t an article
about how to get your kids in line. It’s about how to make the years of
being a mother a fun trip - a personal high, instead of merry-go-round of drudgery.
But you’ll be surprised to learn that making sure you’re having
fun might be the best thing you can do for your kids. You know the metaphor
that everyone tells you after you’ve had a mothering meltdown –
the one about how you have to put the oxygen mask on your own face before you
can put in on your kids. Have you ever noticed how the most overused metaphor
we mothers hear comes from the instructions for a plane crash? Well, the parallel
may not be just a coincidence...
The Enchanted Forest Intuitive Arts Camp Experience by Dr. Betsie Poinsett
Wow! is a good word to use
to start writing about this experience. Can you imagine walking into a room
filled with over 15 intuitive children and their parents? It felt like a wall
of energy encircling us. What a thrill to be invited to the Enchanted Forest
Intuitive Kids Camp. I took my dear friend, Addie with me – she had been
my son Bennett’s girl friend – naming her son Owen Bennett in his
memory has been a touching and wonderful thing for me. Bennett was an Indigo
child who crossed over at 21 in 1997. His birthday is July 8th and every year
since his death he has given me a present to remember him by. It was so fitting
that the day we visited the camp for the first time was on his birthday...
The Movie Making Process© An Educational Prevention Program For The 21st Century By Linda Flanders
The making of a movie is fun. Right there we connect with almost 95% of kids. They become physically involved in an exciting activity. Because we use researched educational scripts, the movie has a point and a purpose. We’re using the movie to help solve a problem. For the general audience who eventually sees the movie, this becomes universal education from a variety of perspectives. For the kids who actually make and/or star in the movie, the process becomes alternate learning activities for them: activities that are fun, exciting and give them a “healthy high” from a real life experience.
HOW TO RAISE AN INDIGO CHILD: A Complete Serialization by Dr. Barbara Condron - Entrainment – Part 3, We Are Linked By Our Dreams
more we learn from our dreams, the more we can aid others with theirs. It’s
like learning English or Chinese, proficiency comes with use. Often we dream
of children, sometimes when we don’t even have children of our own. This
is because in the Universal Language of Mind, the language used in our dreams,
children represent new ideas or new ways of life. Sometimes parents dream about
their children and depending upon the content of the dream this can be funny,
perplexing, or frightening. The following dreams, taken from www.dreamschool.org,
give insight into the dreamer as a person while also leaving impressions about
their relationships with their children.
MEDITATION FOR KIDS: The North Sky by Jeannine Proulx
Guided meditations are a wonderful way to calm the minds of these very high maintenance children. It offers them a story form that keeps them interested and aware, while allowing them the freedom to create their own experiences and stories. Come join us as we offer this next generation the opportunity to create their own world and their own lives! To set the scene, find a quiet, comfortable space and time. Bedtime or afternoon nap is ideal. Keep the lighting soft and still, play soft music if you wish and read out loud slowly...
INSPIRED PARENTING: Photo Journaling - Coaching Parents to Record, Revisit and Reminisce By Dr. Caron B. Goode
It’s a precious time
when family gathers around to relive generations of family memories, moments
and monumental occasions of times past. Even elementary school aged children
marvel at photographs that captured their first smile and steps and at photographs
of grandparents holding their own newborns- the child’s parent.Every child
has the desire to know who they are and where they came from. Photo journaling,
or scrapbooking, provides a wonderful way for children to connect to their family
history. Using film to record the life of a child gives him a tangible glimpse
into his own personal history and upbringing. Photographs validate a child’s
sense of self worth, accomplishment and connection to family...
Raising Intuitive Children: How Can a Parent Support Their Child's Intuitive Abilities? By Tara Paterson
What does a parent say to their
children when they say things like- "mommy I see colors in my room,"
or "I see colors around people and sometimes they are coming at me?"
These are exactly the things my son Caden has been saying to me since the age
of three. I remember sitting in his room with him at night and he would tell
me how he could see colors moving around and how they would either enter or
leave his room. They never seemed to scare him, but he wasn't exactly sure why
they were there...
Spirit Whisperers: Sounds Like You Have a Problem by Chick Moorman and Thomas Haller
“Can I use the phone
to call home?” Jeremy asked the middle-school principal one morning. “Depends
on whether or not your need fits the phone criteria,” Mr. Watson told
him. “What do you mean ‘criteria’? What is that?” Jeremy
asked. Mr. Watson simply pointed to the sign that was attached to the office
phone. It read: “This phone will not be used to create a problem for someone
else.” “I need to call home and have my mom bring my white shirt,”
Jeremy explained. “I’m in choir and we have a performance this afternoon.
Mr. Olson won’t let me participate unless I have a white shirt. Then I’ll
get a zero for the day for nonparticipation.” “Bummer. Sounds like
you have a problem,” Mr. Watson responded...
NEW KIDS, OLD SOULS: The Rainbow Wheel of Relationship - Part 1 By Tigris Powers
When one observes the new children
of our time, it appears that they have come into the world with a similar kind
of wisdom. In fact, though they are born of different families and in various
countries around the world, it appears that these children are all members of
the same tribe. The new children share many of the same gifts, and they are
gifted in ways that surpass our system of education. They have methods of communicating
that even the most studied adults don’t understand. They are intimately
connected to life in all of its forms. And when it comes to relationship, these
children expect more than we have become accustomed to…
Intuitive Parents, Intuitive Kids: Math Vibration & Your Child By Jennifer Crews, M.A.
There is more research surfacing
about the impact of the vibration of our thoughts and our words. How our thoughts
and our words create our reality and our life. Following a recent intuitive
session with a family based out of Florida, I have learned of another area where
vibration impacts our children in an arena I have yet to read about. This is
about children that feel and absorb vibration that has accumulated over time
based on mathematical formulas. They literally experience an energy continuum
where they can feel the accumulation of energy that has built up through out
the history of a particular setting or object…
Focus on Health by Vinca von Muhlenberg, CHHC, AADP -This Month: Raw and Cooling Salads
In summer there is a natural
trend to eat less and lighter foods because we are getting energy from spending
more time outdoors, in the fresh air and being fed from the sun's rays. With
summer in full swing, there is no better season than now to have fun creating
your own fresh, tasty, creative salad combinations. By simply tossing together
several of your favorite raw veggies in a bowl, naked or with a light dressing,
you have a perfect meal for a hot summer’s day. Why is it that we naturally
lean towards more fresh and raw foods as we enter the summer? Eating raw fruits
and vegetables has a cooling effect on the body. The lightness and high content
of water and vitamins work together to act as internal air conditioning during
these warm months…
The Resilient Child: 7 Essential Lessons for Your Child's Happiness and Success By George S. Everley Jr. PhD with Sloane Brown - Lesson #3: Teach Your Children to Take Responsibility for Their Actions
Did you ever meet a person
who simply refused to accept responsibility for something he did that went wrong
or that ended up being a poor choice? Perhaps you tried to point out his mistake
in a constructive way, but the person became angry, accused you of being critical,
and generally tried to blame you. Makes you crazy, doesn’t it? Believe
it or not, this type of person simply never grew up. Generally speaking, their
lives are long journeys of self-doubt, disappointment, and regret, punctuated
by periods of selfish¬ness and angry tirades. Much of this can be traced
back to a failure to learn to take responsibility and parents who never helped
them mature as human beings...
Teens - Making the Most of Summer By Elexus Harris
If you’re like me, the summer will consist of nothing but school work and college classes. Sounds boring, right? Especially for someone that just finished their freshman year of high school. Although it probably will be borig, the whole reason I chose that route (like so many others) was so I could get ahead and finish things sooner than later. So technically speaking, doing school over summer isn’t that bad of a plan. On the other hand some people don’t have a choice. That’s right; some kids were unfortunate enough to have to take summer school unwillingly. Yeah, it may not be the best, but maybe summer school will bring along the best friend you never knew you had, or a new crush that you never saw coming...
