Children and Crystals
Children carry the vibration we, as adults, keep on searching.
In general, their perception is not malicious and they have not yet been exposed or influenced by so many different vibrations and intentions. Still strongly connected to their paths and carrying the energy of new life, children are in the most pure wave of energy as we can get in this realm. As beings starting the journey in the material life, our bodies now are composed of mainly water, water exposed to different vibrations will start to copy what we are surrounded by and that is when we will commence the part of selecting where and how we want to be, creating different and stronger personality traits.
How amazing is the whole process when you think about it in minutes and not years? How precious it is to have the honour to introduce someone to a new chapter in their lives! No, we do not have to be parents to have this honour, all we need is to love and expose a new life to the best experiences and vibrations we can think of, starting on love and moving on to compassion, forgiveness, happiness and so much more. How does the old saying goes? ‘It takes a village to raise a child’.
The question is always similar to this ‘How can i do it?’ and the answer will always be something like this ‘however it feels right’.
We are beings of intention. Yes. What defines a good parent? Intention. As parents, we do what we think is right, what we think is best. Most of the time the facts we have to base our decisions are not even close to complete, so yes, mistakes will happen so the question comes down to what was the intention behind those decisions? There is no right and wrong, what we have is different perspectives, different experiences and different reasoning resulting in different parenting styles.
But lets get back to the title’s point.
Why should crystals be a part of early years of life? Oh! The list is extensive but the main reason is, water has memory, so the more positive vibrations and energy we expose our children, the more their own body will keep the imprint of the vibrations and will recognise it later in life.
Children copy. They copy behaviours and attitudes, they copy body language and reactions. So would it not be expected for them to copy the energy crystals hold? If not copy, would it not be something easier for them to recognise when they are older and already exposed to so many other vibrations? By exposing them to crystals from early years, we are giving their subconscious a memory to relate to when they come across it later in life, helping them identify the energy patterns and waves, so they can make their choices of where to be and somewhat, security.
