Kids Need Fresh Air and Green Spaces

it’s not just Indigo Kids or Star Kids who need plenty of time out in the natural world, but every child.  Many parents today are depriving their children of the one thing that can help make them whole;  Green Spaces,  Fresh Air.  Nature.

What I hear often from Indigo kids and teens is how difficult it is just to get time to play, and time outside in the natural world.  Parents, listen up:  your children CRAVE this!  And they aren’t getting it — at least, nowhere near enough of it.  They need a minimum of one hour a day, EVERY day.

Sure, you as parents have tight schedules and demands.  But that doesn’t mean your kids have to suffer deprivation as a result. I know that it’s a challenge — and I know that parents of Indigo and Star Seed kids are up to it, because I know plenty of parents who make sure their children get enough:

  • Unstructured play time.  This is important to help your kids nurture their immense creative aspects.  (P.S.  Unstructured doesn’t mean “unsupervised”. . . )
  • At least one hour every day out in the natural world.  You know. Trees. Water.  Fresh air.  Animals. Flowers and plants.  Your children need contact with and understanding of Nature.  Make sure they get their daily “vitamin” of it.  Gardens are good — for all family members — even if it’s just a potted plant on the balcony or patio 🙂
  • Healthy food.   Even snacks can be healthy, with a little advance planning.
  • Rest.  (By the way, TV and computer games are NOT restful and do NOT qualify as rest.)

If you’d like a little inspiration for getting kids out into some fresh air and green spaces, here’s a book (The Green Hour by Todd Christopher) and initiative that supports it:

The Green Hour

Your children deserve to have a life that connects them directly with Nature.  Other parents are finding ways to do this — and you can too.  Your children depend on you to help provide the environment where they will thrive.  Make sure they get it.

If you are an Indigo kid, teen, or Star Seed adult, the missing element in your life just might be Nature.  Plan to get back in touch with it, because it will heal and nurture you in ways nothing else can.

Oh, and if you want to learn how to communicate effectively with Nature, and teach your children, you might like to get this free report from How To Partner With Nature Intelligence.  (I think you will like it.)

9/9/09: Sacred Number of Completion and Manifestation

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009 is a special day.  (Well, if you ask me. . . all days are special!)  But this one is especially so.

iStock_000000335156XSmall_number9

In numerology, the number nine has to do with completion — and manifestation.  Now, for those of you who also follow astrology, you might know that the planet Mercury went retrograde on Monday; that is a time when it’s good to complete things that have already been started, work on fixing things that didn’t work out right the first time — relationships, projects, work, and so on — and to prepare for a new cycle ahead.  I mention this because it has a bearing on the energy fields we are entering right now.

Mercury retrograde’s “shadow side” is that it can cause communication delays or misunderstandings (make sure that important letter has a stamp on it — that when you reply to an email you don’t hit “reply all” instead — and that what you say is what they heard); transportation challenges or delays (make sure the car has enough gas in it and it’s tuned up; double check your departure time; and in general don’t freak out if plans change unexpectedly — it will all work out eventually); and machinery has a tendency to go completely haywire (back up your hard drive and your data!)

During this period, you can make some real headway on projects that have been planned, and you can finish things that have been on your desk for quite a while.  it’s a good time.  And. . . this is a special time for working to envision and create a world that fits your ideal of how things are SUPPOSED to work.  We get the stars aligned just right to help it happen right now — which is a major blessing.  Please take advantage of it.  (And keep working on this no matter WHAT the stars are doing!)

If you’d like another glimpse into how the Mayans thought about this sacred number and these times, read an interesting article about “999 and the Mayan Calendar” here.

Finally, I got word today that the Ringing Cedars books have shipped and will be here later this week.  Be sure to check them out and order your copies!  I know they are going to be flying out the door as soon as they get here and I want to make sure you have YOUR copy as soon as possible.

ADD, ADHD, or Overstimulation?

Is it really ADD or ADHD?  All too often we have medical doctors diagnosing ADD or ADHD when it’s just plain overstimulation.  And they are totally missing the Indigos (if they even know about them.)  Giving Indigo kids or teens Ritalin or Adderall is not the way to go!  We don’t need to create drug dependency in our youngsters — plus there are better ways to go.   It’s so easy to write a prescription, and NOT so easy to do the right thing instead — which might involve some or all of the following:

— Find out whether your child truly has ADD or ADHD, or if they are Indigo, or if they are Indigo AND have challenges with attention or focus.  It’s important to find out what’s going on, so that you can make a wise choice about how to provide the best solutions.

These days everyone is bombarded with stimulation from every direction: TV, computers, electronic games, music, Ipods, street noise, and more.  Is it any wonder that our kids — particularly the sensitive ones — can’t cope?

After thorough investigation you can determine that it really is ADD or ADHD, or if you know that you have an Indigo or Crystal child, start with some of the proven natural and holistic methods first.

  • Biofeedback. There are new devices you can wear on your wrist or around a finger. to help you self-monitor your energy and behavior.
  • Find out which kind of learner your child is.  A kinesthetic learner is not going to be sitting still while they learn; and a visual learner might need color to sort things properly in their mind.  Discover the learning style so that you can work with the teachers to give them the best outcomes.
  • Remove overstimulation from the environment.  Limit TV and electronics, and get them out into Nature more often.
  • Adjust their diet.  If they are taking in sugar and carbs rather than a complete, balanced, and high-energy diet, they won’t be able to function well. Period.  Do it in stages if you must, but get them eating and drinking whole, healthy foods — and remove the junk food and fast foods from “the plate.”
  • Use high-quality supplements and greens, to help their energy levels stay consistent.
  • Give them appropriate (and adequate) opportunities for physical exercise.  They MUST move their growing bodies, to build muscle and neurological connections they need to be healthy kids.  And they need appropriate outlets to discharge “extra” energy.

— Give your child or teen the support they REALLY need, for their electrical systems.  Feed them wholesome foods and cut out the junk food (sodas, french fries and chips, candy, cookies, processed foods of all kinds.)  Give them whole foods and organic foods with real nutrients in them.    Give them holistic supplements including greens and spirulina, to provide high quality energy.

— Give them unstructured play time, and a lot of time in the natural world with trees, grass, flowers, water, and rocks.  They NEED the connection, to feel safe and to remember their connections.

— Don’t fill their every waking moment with activity. They need equal parts of rest and play, to be able to better use their minds and their creaivity.  Let them make up their own games in free play time with others (supervised in some way but from a bit of a distance so that they are responsible for what happens.  The adult can step in only when need be as a referee or to provide a time-out should it be needed.)

— Give them flower essences.  All children can benefit from flower essences, but kids with ADD or ADHD — and definitely Indigo kids and teens — absolutely require them.  For Indigo kids, they are in contact with (and affected by) more subtle energy fields than other kids;  and their systems need special support that they can’t get any other way.  Flower essences can help them assilimate and balance their own energies, and be more able to process the external energies they sense from outside their own physical bodies.

This month I just made a great new flower essence formula called Pure Focus, which works for kids with ADD and ADHD, to help them stay focused despite distractions, to be able to concentrate on whatever they choose, and to retain what they learn longer.  For kids with ADD or ADHD, Pure Focus is the inner support they need while you as the parent work with getting their outer environment aligned better *removing distractions, junk food, giving them free play time, and enough physical exercise.)

If your child is also Indigo or Crystal, they may also need Indigo Support formula.  This formula helps them stabilize their own emotions and electrical field when it’s challenged by too much stimulation from any source.  They will like this one a great deal and ask you for it when they need it!

Most of all, stay away from pharmaceuticals unless they are absolutely necessary.  The only thing they do is to make your child into a zombie! Drugging is never the best answer – only a seemingly convenient one.  As the parent, you are responsible for making wise choices for your child.  Make sure you have examined ALL the alternatives before you choose.  And make sure above all that it’s in the CHILD’S best interests, not yours.

Keeping Up With The Energy Shifts ~ Or Not

These days things change so fast, it’s sometimes hard to keep up, let alone calibrate what’s going on and what it means — on a personal level as well as for our human consciousness.  That’s why I like to read other blogs and check in on what others are noticing; often their reflections mirror my own, and give me some validation.

One of the sites I like for this is Karen Bishop’s What’s Up On Planet Earth (which now has a new web site called Emerging Earth Angels.)  Her latest post talks about the kind of strange “lull” some of us have been feeling, where projects are stalled, things seem to be at a complete stand-still, and equipment doesn’t work right.

For instance, my flagship web site was down for more than 48 hours from Sunday to Tuesday because of a major server failure; one of my clients cancelled her call because she just had a “blue screen of death” on her computer and had to send for a new hard drive to replace it — thank goodness for backup!  (Hey — you ARE backing up your systems and your data, aren’t you?  Make sure you do!)  And so on.  These things keep happening, and rather than become frustrated by them, it’s easier just to check out the energy flows and to see what’s happening on a larger scale.  The perspective is helpful.

And frankly, so is the rest!  We’ve been moving at quite the speed lately, and working hard in multiple dimensions.  We truly have earned a rest.  But sometimes it feels like I’m all geared up with nowhere to go!  Ever have that feeling?

“What does Indigo usher in for us as an earth people, and our future?”

“Are Indigos here to stop the New World Order?”

These I want to take some time to answer today.  Interestingly, the answer I’m going to give pertains to both of these questions.  Read on. . . Continue Reading »

Too Old To Be Indigo? Nope!

A reader asks if she’s too old to be Indigo, having been born before the 1980’s. Of course not!   She asks further, “What does it really mean for me to be Indigo, and how can it help me in my life?”

Puzzled?

Night Classes, Part Three

Being awake in the dream is both a learned skill to some degree and something that often comes naturally for Indigos.  Some Indigos seem to be able to work with their dream content naturally — whether it’s of a precognitive nature, or just working through personal, family, or societal issues.

Overloaded? How To Deal With Energy Overloads

With all the accelerated energies and interdimensional shifts going on, it’s all too easy to feel overloaded with too much energy to process.

What to do?

There are a couple of simple steps you can do to quickly and safely “power down” and get back to center.

  • Get out into Nature and allow the natural world to help you release what’s “more than you need” — and to help you take in more of what you DO need instead of the frenetic, scrambled energies that you may have taken on from the outside world.
  • Take time to be still.  Remove yourself from the noise (including TV, MP3 players, radio, and all electronic gadgets.)  Unplug yourself and go to a place without noise or commotion.  If the only place you can find that is in the bathroom, so be it!  It will work 🙂
  • Meditate.  It doesn’t have to be a formal practice with you on a cushion like a Zen monk.  Just find something to focus on for a period of at least 10-15 minutes a day (a candle flame, a bowl of water, a flower. . . things like that.)  Ideally you can work up to half an hour.  But start with SOMETHING!  Just do it.  You need to find a way to calm and discipline your mind.

And finally, my favorite technique of all.  Go hug a tree!  Here’s why.  The tree can accept what you don’t need, and put it into the Earth for recycling.  This helps everyone.

Put your arms around a tree (any tree will do, as long as it’s big enough for you to wrap your arms around.)  Concentrate on the extra energies you are feeling, and ask the tree to receive the “overload” of the energies you would like to release ~ and request that the tree funnel the energy back down into the earth through its roots.

Go hug a tree!

Go hug a tree!

This is easy to do, is not harmful for the tree, and helps to make the energies you release available for whatever the Earth needs.  And yes, the Earth can handle this 🙂  Really.

Don’t sit there freaking out about feeling overloaded.  There are simple, practical things you can do.

So go do them!  And tell your friends.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these things, and how they’ve worked for you :-0
