Do you know a child who has an invisible friend? Do you know a child who doesn't talk but seems to understand you, like he/or she can listen to your thoughts? What about a child who is a loner, doesn't have any friends and is withdrawn?
I think it is important as parents to reach out to children and let them know that they are ok. That what they are going through will pass. But most importantly that they are loved and allowed to be who they were born to become.
"Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not for you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you can not visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward, nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might that His arrows
may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
for even as He loves the arrow which flies,
so He loves also the bow which is stable." K.Gibran
As an adult I am both daughter and mother, with adult children.
I have allowed my children to be who they are. But I must admit
it was difficult when they were teenagers. But their will to become
who they were meant to be was stronger than my will to make them
what I wanted them to be.
Isn't that true with you and your parents? Did you struggle to be who you were meant to be?
I believe that if your child can "see" invisible people, they can! It is our unwillingless to allow them to be who they are, that can come between are G*d given birthright. The thread that
connects us to where we came from "spirit". I truly am a "spirit" having a human existence and so are you.
More and more children are being born "psychic" or with "healing" powers that are stronger than those that came before. If we can let go of the fear, and allow them to be who they are. They will help the earth, they were born to do so. They were born for greatness.
I'd love to hear your comments. Peace!
