Feng Shui and Children: A Lesson from My Late Mother from 2010
Drafted by Carole (2010)
As I watched my children growing up and go through all the phases that children do, I wasn't practicing Feng Shui back then. And although I'd heard and read about "The Law of Attraction," I'm not quite sure it had set in yet.
Laura's special passion, is to work with children. Her background in teaching and her knowledge of Feng Shui gives children a different way of seeing things....and believing in themselves. The younger the child, the easier it is to turn a "negative" thought into a "positive" one. When you notice your child, at any age, stuck or in doubt about whether or not they can accomplish something, encourage them. Sometimes you have to give them the "worst case scenario" to make them see that there are no FAILURES, only things we haven't attempted because of our fears. This is probably the most difficult part of Feng Shui for children and for adults. Being mindful to turn each and every thought into a positive one: it is probably the one our client's struggle with the most, but once they get past it, they often start to see it happens on it's own. I was speaking to someone today who I liked very much. She had her own issues with life....and some of the many people in it. I encouraged her to try and forgive those that she held grudges against—which was very difficult for her. I tried to explain that you do that more for yourself, NOT for another person. It releases you....not them. And I reminded her of her children as well. Both are still in the "formative" years and instead of waking up and dreading each day going to school, to try to help them focus on waking up and seeing a new "adventure." Life is full of them and we need not miss them Our Energy is very powerful and there are many things we DO have control over. Our thoughts...and what we send up will come back to us; sometimes in ways we may not always recognize but they will return to us. For children and years before The Secret spoke of the "Vision Board," in Feng Shui we spoke and used an "Accomplishment Board" for children. It is theirs to fill with things that make them feel good and it should be changed often. I often see children hang their favorite piece of artwork or something they envision themselves becoming in the future....which changes as they grow. When I look back ,I wish I had made an accomplishment board. It is an inspiration to see ALL that we actually have accomplished...and all that we can continue to if we really try. Whether your child is 3 or 15, have them give it a try. It is something we suggest to children to show them All they have done and ALL they can become.
