I am starting 2011 off with a new experience...Blog Talk Radio. My dear friend, Morrighan Lynne, has invited me to be a guest host on her radio show, "Rock What You Got." We will, of course, be discussing the New Children, so please join us! We will be live on the air on April 10, 2011, at 11am MST. You can also listen to the show in the show archives after it has aired. Here is the link to the show:
Honoring Your Power
Many sensitive and intuitive children have one thing in common...they don't understand their gifts and in turn have a lack of self-esteem and confidence. It is difficult for adults to manage their own feelings and not take things personally. Imagine what it is like for children who feel different and feel like they don't fit in. This can be very confusing! What these kids don't realize is that they are not different; they are highly sensitive to energy. They pick up on other people’s energies/feelings and take them on as their own, when they are not. Learning to manage this kind of energy can be difficult, but it is not impossible. The key is awareness and practice.
I have spent a large part of my life feeling different and not understanding why. I have been hard on myself, I have not felt good enough, and just plain wondered why I am not like everyone else. It has not been until I started to awaken and move forward on my path, by educating myself in esoteric philosophies, that I have come to understand that "It truly is not personal!"
I am highly sensitive and intuitive, and when I am around other people, I pick up on their feelings and thoughts. In the past, I have always thought that all these feelings I have picked up on, when I am around other people, were mine. I struggled with differentiating other people's energies from my own. Now, as a result of understanding my spiritual gifts, I have the awareness to realize that the stuff I pick up on, when I am around other people, is not necessarily mine.
Remember the movie with Mel Gibson, "What Women Want"? Mel electrocuted himself and found himself with the ability to hear women's thoughts. When this first started happening to him, he held his head and covered up his ears and was totally overwhelmed. After Mel realized he was hearing women’s thoughts, he taught himself how to manage hearing their thoughts so it did not overwhelm him.
This is exactly what it can be like for children who become school-aged and find themselves in an environment full of different types of energies. Although this is somewhat of an extreme example, it is a good comparison for what it is like to be overwhelmed by other people’s energies, thoughts, and/or emotions. For most people it is more of a subtle experience, which is exactly why it is so confusing.
Many parents and caregivers have some idea of the ways their child is sensitive and intuitive, either consciously or subconsciously. Helping the children by nurturing their spiritual gifts helps them remain open and connected to their higher selves...the true essence of their spirit. That is the goal... When we honor our spirit and remain true to ourselves by honoring our power, life on Earth will be a less bumpy ride. For when we are disconnected from our inner truth, the essence of who we are, life can give us some pretty big challenges. So help the children honor who they are and help them to understand and become aware of their own power.
