Connecting with Angels and encouraging our kids natural intuition
As humans and especially as parents we have the tendency to want to control everything. Although I absolutely believe that our intentions come from a loving place, the notion that adults or ‘mum knows best’ quite often just isn’t the case. As a parent, I can feel how scary and hard it is to relinquish control as the world expects us and our children to do and behave in a certain way, however I do believe that one very important gift we were born with needs to be nurtured, encouraged and developed, especially in our young ones. This gift is the gift of intuition.
I have always been a believer in guides, spirit guides and guardian angels. The concept that there is support and nurturing available from a source other that the physical always sat well with me. Some people have God and go to church, I meditate and work everyday on developing my intuition. The most important point of what I’m trying to say is that there is no right or wrong, what ever you believe in if it works for you and you are trusting your guidance then keep doing it.
With my belief’s it’s only natural that I open up my children’s world to the opportunity of knowing and being guided by their angels and spirit guides. After all, something so beautiful gives children a knowing that they are loved and supported when it seems that things might not be going perfectly for them.
It’s no secret that children are naturally intuitive. They know when they are hungry or thirsty, they know when the energy in the room isn’t right. They are drawn towards certain people and repelled from others. There are plenty of children that talk in colours and most youngsters will actually talk in some way or another with their angels or imaginary friends.
With the help of us as parents, children’s natural spiritual gifts can blossom and develop. All too often they are shut down by what we would call reality or practicality when in actual fact, trusting your gut instinct and having the courage to act upon it is a gift we were all born with and should continue to develop.
I try where I can to enhance and encourage my children’s ability to be intuitive and make decisions for themselves. Of course, they aren’t going to get it right all of the time and there are many times where I have to intervene and follow with my own guidance, but for the most part I do what I can to be conscious of helping and encouraging them to develop their own self awareness.
One of the ways in which I do this with Autumn is by playing with this deck of Doreen Virtue Angel Cards. They offer blessings and messages which are relevant to young children’s concerns and daily life. The cards are designed especially to fit in their little hands and the accompanying full-size guide book is easy to read with simple messages.
I love how it gives us another way I can communicate with our kids. It’s our special time everyday to sit down and see what messages the angels might have for us. I love working with the cards when Autumn isn’t feeling well or her behaviour is erratic in one way or another. It’s a nice way to sit still, tune in and see if something comes up that we can work with.
And the best part of all? She absolutely loves them! The excitement on her face when we sit together with the cards is priceless, she LOVES reading her angel message.
