Yesterday my nine year old son and I had a conversation that I absolutely must share. We were on our way to karate class, and he said “mama, I think that when I let my hands do the work and I don’t tell them what to do, it’s better”.
I had a feeling that I knew where he was coming from. I wanted him to continue, so I just said “uh huh”. He kept talking “it’s like when I throw a frisbee and I don’t think about it, it a really good throw, and when I do the test at school if I just let my hand do the answering then it’s the right answer.”
Haven’t you heard it said “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear”? Good words I think. It doesn’t matter if the best teacher on a subject of my interest is in the room with me, if I’m not ready for the message I will not learn anything.
I call myself a “seeker” because I have a thirst for learning and growing that has kept me open to listening to ideas from many teachers. I have had many teacher along the way, and they have all been wonderful in that they brought me the answer that I was searching for at that specific point in my life, and I appreciate them all.
Having a bad day? Hug a baby. Want to have a better day? Hug a baby.
New born babies are pure positive energy. Their alignment with source is absolute. They are devoid of resistant thoughts and are in a constant state of ease and joy (except when they're hungry or dirty!). They are easily diverted and look at everything with curiosity. Everything is exciting and new through a babies eyes, and life is delicious.
When I was a much younger I used to see things in the room that I knew my parents could not see. After a while I stopped making a fuss and pointing them out to them. But the knowledge of having seen them is always at the back of my mind. I have always wondered if I was actually seeing beings that were there or making it up - as children are often told that they do.
Do you remember having any similar experiences?
Do you believe in the existence of witches and wizards and other creatures that go bump in the night?
Children understand us and our thoughts long before they learn to talk. They read our feelings because they have a very strong emotional connection with us. The connection is the strongest with the mother because of cellular memory (a concept that I will elaborate upon soon – just bear with me for the moment). As children learn the use of language for communication they slowly let go of their ability to read our vibrations. Reading vibrations is just like mind reading. What makes it easier for children to read our minds is the fact that we are open to communicating with our newborns with means other than words. We understand that holding a baby close will make it feel secure. We understand that the tone of our voice is soothing to the child. Isn’t tone of voice a vibration?
Now, let’s talk about “cellular memory”. Cells are the basic building blocks of life. Anything that is living is made up of cells – therefore rocks don’t have cells. Cells have a way of storing information. That’s how the body remembers how to transform a clump of cells that form the embryo or unborn baby into arms and legs that sprout from the right place in the body. This system of storing information is called cellular memory. Because of cellular memory there have been reports of people who receive transplanted organs experiencing flashes that are from the life of the donor, or sometimes waking up knowing things that only the donor could have known. Each cell of our bodies has access to all our thoughts and feelings. This is why our whole body reacts when it feels a stimulus through any of our physical senses of smell, taste, hearing, seeing and touching.
The baby has a cell from the father and one from the mother, this creates the most basic communication bridge between it and it’s parents. The communication link is stronger with the mother because she acts as host to the embryo during gestation and therefore the unborn child “feels” all her emotions. For many months after birth this contact is maintained. It is the reason why the child can recognize it’s mother without using any of the physical senses – it feels the familiarity of her vibration and knows her because of it.
The unborn child and the newly born child can read our worry and our joy. I believe that those two categories are the only ones a child uses to gauge it’s own wellbeing.
