We all want our children to be healthy and happy. All too often though, our little ones suffer with issues like nightmares, stammering and bedwetting, and as parents we feel powerless to help.
However, with a little bit of know-how you can make a difference. In this article, I will show you simple, effective steps you can take to help clear the cause of these issues and heal your child.
Clear the Root
If you want to heal your child, you need to get to the root of the problem. The root of most children’s difficulties is their inability to communicate and express themselves. If they cannot explain to you what they are thinking and feeling, they will not feel understood and validated. If they do not feel understood, they will not feel secure. In some children, this underlying lack of security will trigger all sorts of fears. In others, it leads to profound frustration, which in turn can cause behavioural problems.
So, the key to all of this is to heal their block to communication and expression. If you can sort this out, everything else will fall into place. While you cannot make your child more mature, or increase their vocabulary, you can unblock the communication energy centre at the throat. Doing this will allow that area of development to blossom naturally.
Blue Cuddles are the Key
The colour which resonates with the throat energy centre or Chakra is blue. This colour has the effect of opening and unblocking the throat energy, and making communication feel easy and natural. This is what you need to do:
- Get yourself a warm, bright blue (not sky blue) blanket or shawl. Wrap your child up in the blanket and cuddle them. At the same time, play a game with your child of breathing in the blue colour. This combines the healing colour with your love and comfort; a very potent healing combination! Do this once a day or more often if your child is distressed.
- Get a piece of Aquamarine crystal. Hold it, and focus your intention for your child’s healing and self-expression into the stone. Place it under your child’s mattress, making sure they cannot reach it and accidentally swallow it.
- Use Bach Flower remedies: Rescue Remedy, Aspen and Mimulus. Take four drops of each remedy and add to a little boiling water; this allows the alcohol to evaporate. After a couple of minutes, dilute the mixture with more water to approximately 30ml and keep in the fridge. Kept cold, the remedy will last for four weeks. Give your child four drops four times a day. This combination will help with their stress, fears and anxiety, and will support the colour healing. (Bach Flower remedies are available from any health-food store and are safe for everyone.)
The combination of the blue colour energy and the Bach Flower remedies will make your child feel less worried and anxious, safer and more confident that they can express themselves. This makes them feel much more secure on a deep level. When your child begins to feel truly safe, you will see them relax and start to be at ease with themselves. I first used these techniques with my own son. He had been suffering from severe night terrors, and following this, he began to stammer. We had even taken it as far as getting him assessed by a speech therapist. When I used these simple techniques, his nightmares and stammering just evaporated over a period of a few weeks. Not only did he feel much happier, but I became a lot less stressed too.
