Imagine if we taught all of our young people to meditate and create an intention for the day to hold them, when they feel emotions are beginning to escalate. .
Just imagine for a moment if you had been taught the infinite power of the mind and that you are a brilliant co-creator of your world. Imagine for a moment that someone had taught you as a child, to observe the functions of the mind and be a witness to the repetitive thoughts that might be keeping you trapped in a mental prison of your own making. .
I want you to know that my darling daughter pictured here (Amelia 7) is still now 8 and very much at the whim of her deep and fierce emotions. Sometimes she comes unglued, just as I do. We're all learning how to get back to a place of peace in the mind. To have the innocence of an infant and the self control of a sage. Talk about work. .
We know that a vast account of symptoms of mental illness are in relationship to dysfunctional patterns in childhood. Abuse, neglect, unaddressed anger, addiction, negativity, severe criticism... The list could go on and on. I have a pair of socks that say "it's all my parents fault"😂
If you are a parent on this journey of self exploration there is a must read book: The Conscious Parent by @drshefalitsabary that I would consider to be one of the most profound books I've read. We don't need to heal or control our children to bend to our will, rather to heal ourselves and the rest will fall into place.
We must first be able to face the shadow places before we can heal. We have to become a witness to the dysfunction before we can begin to heal. We have to be fiercely able to admit our own imperfection, or own delusions, before we can heal the child within (so with out). .
Imagine for a moment a world where we teach our children these principles slowly and with care. .
First we must raise ourselves, then we have the right and privilege of raising healthy children. .
