Being a Questionable Parent…a parent who lives as the question!
Our children are awareness. From the day they are born they are incredibly aware; so aware that they do not separate who they are from their awareness of all the energies around them. This slowly changes around two years of age, when they start to also know who they are. Whenever I can, whatever it takes, I am here to assist my children, and myself, in increasing this ability to know. One of the greatest gifts we can offer our children is to honor their awareness, to acknowledge that they know, whenever they know. Telling them what they should think or what they should know, whether it is to protect them from the “horrors” of the world or to force them to get our point of view of how they should be, does not help them to be aware, it shuts their awareness down! Awareness, for most of us at first, is light as a feather; it is often missed in this reality because it is rarely acknowledged. The more it is acknowledged, the more ticklish that feather becomes until it starts to become too difficult to ignore. Every time we acknowledge when we are aware, we give more tickle to that feather.
When we say, How does it get better than this? Each time we have awareness. We increase this ability. If you stop or shut down someone’s knowing you dis-empower them, and with each disempowerment they may disconnect more and more from their own ability to be aware. Their ability to be aware of what works for them, what they would like to choose to make them happy, what they would like to choose to nourish their body, and their ability to perceive the lies that exist all around. The gift of their awareness allows them to make choices from consciousness rather than from what they have been told. We have all had our knowing invalidated in this reality over and over again for lifetime after lifetime. It is one reason we can stay so stuck in this limited reality. What will it take to change this, and what will it take to acknowledge our children for their amazing gifts of awareness?
