Introducing Children to All Things Woo-Woo

I want to extend my prayers and love to all those in the path of this monstrous storm. Many of you may remember that Erik warned us of this very occurrence both recently and a little over a year ago and said it was related to the shift in the magnetic poles. But we’ll be fine.

I’d also like to ask everyone to visualize sending white light to those in danger a few times a day if possible. One way is to visualize sending that light directly to the core of the Earth. Then, imagine the light traveling up to the crust entering soles of the feet, into the bodies of all those who might possibly be affected.

Erik taught me another interesting grounding technique that might help us align our own vibrational frequency with that of the Earth. I’ve done the exercise once day for about ten days and have noticed something very odd. First of all, right after the exercise, I feel a bit dizzy, but definitely more in my body. Second, I’ve been uncannily psychic lately, predicting scores of events that I would never have foreseen before. It’s as if that alignment of vibration allows me to tap into my own intuition, whether channeling my True Self or other spiritual entities. Erik tells me that the full effect won’t take place for around three weeks, so I can’t wait to see what else is in store for me. Pretty cool stuff.

It only takes a couple of minutes. I usually do it while waiting for the water is warming up for my bath or shower. Here are the steps”

1) Make sure you stand barefooted so you feel the floor, soil grass, etc. beneath your feet. Notice the texture of the surface against your soles. Pay attention to inhalations and exhalations through your nose.

2) Visualize bright white light beginning to form around your feet. It helps me to create an electrical pulsing sound with it. Then, shoot that white light to the Earth’s core as I described above. Wrap the core in that white light. Let the light caress it lovingly. (If you need more grounding, you can, along with the white light, have entangled roots extend from your soles to wrap around the core. Call it extra credit.)

3) Then visualize the light shooting out from the core to the Earth’s crust. Again, I use sounds to help me here. In this case I imagine electrical zapping sounds. Just as you do with the Earth’s core, envision that white light wrapping lovingly around the Earth. Feel that love.

4) Next, imagine the Earth sending its light from its crust to its core to the soles of your feet. That light then travels to your heart chakra and wraps around your body. You’ll feel loved, especially after you’ve done this exercise several times. In my case, I see the Earth’s light in a different color. I won’t tell you which color, because I want you to visualize and share your own.

5) Then, tell your brain, “Match this vibration. Match this vibration. Match this vibration.” Remember to breathe in and out through your nose during this entire exercise.

6) Eventually (and for some, perhaps right away), you’ll be able to visualize your light going to the Earth and the Earth’s light going to you simultaneously in a circular flow.

7) Rinse and repeat three times and after a week or two, let us know what experiences you have.

******************************************

Okay, Erik. Your turn.

Me: What can you do to open the realities of young children to things like chakras and vibrations to help them feel comfortable and confident navigating their time on Earth? How do you teach them this on a child level?

Jamie: Erik leans over and cuts his eyes at me. I don’t hate it. I like that he knows so much about me, but he motivates me in ways that challenge me.

Erik (looking at Jamie): Well, if Jamie would get her materials out—

Jamie: It’s a secret dream of mine. I don’t think I’ve ever shared it with you, Elisa. I’ve written children’s books and stuff about learning about vibrations and energies and chakras—

Me: Well, hurry up! I’ve got a grand daughter to help raise here!

Jamie: Well, I have them written; I just can’t really seem to find a publishing company and set up the illustrations that I like and stuff like that.

Me: Oh, okay.

Jamie: So, he’s calling me a lazy dud.

Erik: Yeah, so when you’re dealing with kids like 4 or so—

(Pause)

Jamie (to Erik, a little aggravated): Don’t! Don’t do that! YOU answer the question!

(Pause)

Jamie: Okay, this is from Erik, not me. He said, “You should answer it.”

Erik: When you’re talking to these children, of course it’s always s little uncomfortable at first to start using words like chakra and aura and other kinds of woo-woo things, because you don’t want your kids to be out there using those sorts of terms and having other moms thinking, “Who the fuck are you as a mom?” Cuz it’s still a little taboo.

Me: Yeah.

Erik: It’s a fine balance raising your children with this and still being in the general public, so I would come up with some different words. They can be words you come up together, and when you’re talking to your kids when they’re having a certain emotion, draw a picture and help teach them that their body doesn’t stop where their skin is. Their body goes out wider and brighter than that and that’s where the emotions are. The emotions are held outside the body. That would be a simple way of introducing that they are bigger than their bodies, and if they are feeling happy, people can stand inside their happiness or if they feel sad, they can stand inside their sadness. And this is why they feel what other people are going through.

Me: Ah! We adults could take something away from this, too!

Jamie: Yeah, I like that, Erik! I better jot that down.

I can hear her whispering the words to herself as she scribbles on a piece of paper.

Jamie: Erik, maybe you and I could do some fun stuff with that one.

Erik: Yeah, sure! Okay. And when you’re teaching them about chakras, just use the term, “center.” To teach a spiritual person, as an adult, we’re always teaching them to center to their heart, so make that the starting place and talk about the green center that’s in their heart. Then really discuss with them about the emotions. I wouldn’t really teach more than that until about the age of six or seven when they start to really identify themselves as independent and start creating a sense of separation from themselves and their world. When you get there, that’s when you can start teaching them about the other centers like the throat and how they govern other parts of the body. And that’s when you can start teaching them about color therapy.

Me: Ah, great!

Erik: With the 0 to 6 age range when it’s mostly about emotions and the green center, this will help them center in emotions. That makes them a better spiritual child. You can also teach them aromatherapy, because that can link straight to the emotions. “If you’re happy, smell this.” “Oh so this smell makes you happy.”

Me: Wait, so shouldn’t it be something that you smell when you’re sad so that you’re happier?

Erik: Well, we find it more beneficial to have the higher vibrational emotions. So, identify the smells that children associate to higher vibrations. It could be excitement, peace, centeredness, calm, joy, all of these things, so when they’re experiencing the lower vibrations, you can say, “Oh, you’re pretty anxious about what’s going on. Well, here’s this smell that makes you calm.” So when a child is giggling and laughing, give them like five scents and say, “Smell these five scents and tell me if you like any of them right now.” And the one they like the most will be their happy smell.

Me: Oh, I see!

Erik: And when they’re really calm and centered or really tired and they’re going to bed, say, “Oh, smell these five; which one do you like?” Then that one will be their sleep scent. So if they can’t get good sleep, you can use that spray or that oil to create that sleep state.

Me: I get it.

Erik: Yeah, so you definitely want them in the emotion to pick out the smell that goes with it.

Me: How do parents pick out these scents? Do they come in sets?

Erik: I would recommend, um, pick the top twenty or top fifteen—I like twenty—that are non-toxic, non-allergenic and use those. A child’s is going to be pretty much honest with you. They might smell ‘em all and go, “I don’t like any of them.” And you go, “Okay.” And then the next time they’re happy, try a set of five. 

Me: Okay. So when they try the set of five, so they just sniff it or do you use a diffuser?

Erik: Nah, just let ‘em sniff it. Just sniff it out of the bottle. The simpler the better. If you make it more complicated, the kid will snap out of their happiness and get into the mode of exploration and you don’t want that.

Me: Okay. This is all great information, Erik. God, I wish I knew all of this when you guys were growing up.

    thank you for this exercise Erik! will definetly try these. : )

  • Clau_Bueno

    Hi Elisa and Erik,
    tks for sharing the exercise… I will try as well! My only question is: what do you mean with the step 7: “rinse and repeat 3x”?

    tchau for now,
    clau

    • Haha! That’s an American reference–always on the directions for shampoo. I just mean repeat three times!

      • Clau_Bueno

        Tee Heeee!!! Ok! 🙂

  • Suzanne

    Thanks Erik for this info and also for the previous info about aligning our vibrational frequency with the Earth, I’ll definitely be giving them both a try. I have always been very sensitive to smells but never connected them with moods.

  • PollyMax2010

    Great visualisation for the Earth 🙂 Yeah, my kids are too old for the smelling technique, wonderful though for the wee ones 🙂 xox

  • Jan Drake Bakke

    Lovely visualization of grounding techniques. I will try these. Thank you!! Love to hear tois that Erik says of the aromatherapy for kids. Scents for different feelings etc.And using different words. Cool info!! I love the whoo whoo words. Amy says this and it describes so much so well. Erik says this!!xo I am saying it now too lately!!LOL!!!

  • Peter_J88

    Thanks for the exercise… can’t wait to try it again… I thought that it was also interesting that, with the kids thing, you’re reenforcing the positive rather than counteracting the negative… great stuff… Oh… I got pink Elisa when I tried it… A pastel pink… I guess there’s no right or wrong answers…

  • Vicki H

    Love this! I would buy Jamie’s books right now! C’mon, Jamie! 😉 My boys are 6 and 8, and are very interested in my oils, crystals, Reiki, and Angel cards, etc. I have tried looking for books for kids and cannot find any!

    • M & M

      Hello Vicki- if you are looking for books written for children with a spiritually aware message you may want to check the web site of Karen Bishop; http://www.gamabooks.com/charlierivers.html. Karen has been writing ascension type posts for a couple of years, which I have found to be very comforting and right on, and now she is moving full time into her new love, that of writing children’s books. I don’t have any kids of the appropriate age but maybe they will be helpful for what you are looking for.

  • Linda2749

    Elisa can you point us to the post about the storms mentioned by Erik we can use those post to share with some who are doubtful about the validity of the blog. Elisa will the grounding be effective if you stand on a deck over water?

  • Yep, that was my color too. And my hubby’s.

  • God I wouldn’t know where to begin to find it! On your other question, all you have to do is be aware of the touch of your soles against some sort of surface.

  • Tracy Lamont

    Really cool visualisation. Am going to try it xx

    I have been thinking about this topic for awhile now,,and several months ago during a meditation where i had been trying to ask for guidance with learning things i could teach my grandchildren about spirituality. In that meditation i got the feeling that because of the way our society has conformed and programed us that basically it causes us as programmed adults to raise our kids to become “energy vampires”,,,we are taught that vampires feed on the blood of humans,,,(legend says anyway),,,i am not really comparing us or our children to a vampire in that aspect,,,but what i saw in my understanding,,,is that because we have been lead so far away from the Truth of who we really are,,,,we do not put any emphasis on the importance of spirituality,,,sure some go to church,,,but that is not truly bringing all the truths into play in our daily experiences,,,,so we grow up being feeders of other peoples energy (vampires) because we have been brainwashed into believing that spirit ,energy ,vibration etc. is Not anything that can help us in our actual living,,,,it is all looked at as “well even if those things are real and do exist,,how can that help us in our real lives?,,,,,can our spirit,energy,or vibration,prayers,,,,go to work for us and make the money we need to survive?,,,well if it can’t than it has no use in our physical lives,,,,so with society putting all the real things that matter at the bottom of the list of “what we need to survive,,,,we have in my opinion ,,,,become “energy vampires”,,,because the truth IS we now know,,,Spirit,energy and vibration etc,,,,does matter and actually exists ,,,,,society or people that have not opened their eyes to the truth don’t even realize the way they act and interact with life,,,is completely backwards from what the true path really is,,,,we are energy,,,we make energy,,and we are supposed to,,,acknowledge this truth and learn to become lil’energy units. We have the ability to harvest,store,use and share energy in unlimited amounts. I watched the little ones and if anyone else would try ,,,maybe everyone could see what i was shown,,,,it is like you can see toddlers,,,using all the techniques our society teaches,,and literally going to whom ever they can absorb the most energy from. How can we change this backwards teaching and thinking,,,,,also,,, i mention this because i have seen on a couple different pages that now other people that are learning all this new stuff,,,also said basically the same analogy,,,we are “energy vampires” and we are raising our children to become the same as society wants us to be,,,brainwashed and ignorant. Can we really change the way we were taught and also teach our children all the truths,,with just a few moments a day working with meditation or chakra clearing etc?,,,,i just don’t know,,,i am thinking that the only way for all this to change,,,is if we take extreme measures with ourselves and our children,,,what those measures are i only have some small ideas,,,nothing real,,,nothing that i could organize and start doing on my own,,,,do i feel this way,,,incapable or unable to actually make a difference,,,even in my own life and the life of my family,,,because of the way i was raised in this country,,,,I think so. Maybe We could ask Erik,,,do we need to Stop everything,,,,unlearn what we have been taught and work constantly,continuosly to change the way we think,learn and teach? or can we keep our lives the way they are and just work a little with meditaion and such,,,re-educating ourselves by reading the new material and treating all of this spiritual stuff,,,like extra-curriculum,,,something to do after we watch our tv shows or after the kids game practice is over,,etc. I guess i am wanting to find out,,,,(because of the way i was taught ) do we need to treat this like a world-wide disaster (meaning put fixing this problem and being prepared #1 on our list) or do we treat it like,,the new gym we sign up for because we know we want change,,,where in the beginning we go and work out religiously ,,,,and in a short time,,,just let it go,,,and fall back into your old patterns. I am just seeing that in America,,if it isn’t put to us,,,in a life or death senario then we tend to just over look it,,even if it truly is important and could mean our lives,,,if it isn’t put out to us,,,as a life or death situation,,then we don’t even give it the time of day. LoveToAll

    This is a little hard for me to write about but I think it’s relevant. My son died at two and his twin sister was shattered but didn’t have the language to express her feelings nor to understand our explanation of what had happened. She was out of her mind with distress and she kept insisting on taking baths. My (intuitive) counselor explained that my daughter was trying to restore her energetic equilibrium through immersion in the bath water. She suggested adding lavender oil to the bath as well as spraying her pillow with Rescue Remedy; we did both. After some months, the baths slowed down, although she still (at 3.5) likes to take a couple a day. I knew her inner wisdom guides her in this, as she still experiences pain and grief about her brother. I would be thrilled if Jamie published her books–I hope Erik is working on this from his side.

  • It’s incredible how wise our children are and kudos to you for fostering that wisdom instead of snuffing it out like so many do. You’re such an awesome mom!

    My name is Paula, I am an artist in Rhode Island, and I work at a university as a graphic designer. I stumble on this site months ago, and check in now and again. I always gain something, and appreciate the stories. I think often in terms of color and visualize this easily. My special skill is painting on silk, I used to have a studio in my house, but now I have rented the space. I miss this, but it is a good solution for me now, having teenage kids and recently divorced. So things change but I know I will get back to it some time. Thanks for all these posts that you share so generously. It’s nice to know there are like-minded people such as this group, I always take something beautiful to mull over from your discussions here. I am envisioning some cool children’s book illustrations now…

  • Elisa, thanks for sending white light to those of us who have been storm-wracked since October 28. We were out of power for 7 days (last year, we were out 5 days with Irene and 8 days with Snowtober), then got hit with 8 inches of snow last night. Ouch. Fortunately, we maintained power last night even with the heavy snow — and we had cable/Internet, which had just been restored, after 10 days of being disconnected. Yay.

    Here in Ridgefield, CT, we weren’t as devastated and hard hit as the Jersey shore and Far Rockaway, Queens, but life was nevertheless stressful. Unfortunately, I have the feeling that this kind of “stress test” is just the beginning.

    Eric, should we move? If so, where will it be safe and prosperous to go in the future?

    I loved this exercise but what do the colours mean – I got different colours ranging in strength of the shade as well, from light blue to deep electric blue, electric green and also electric purple. The light blue came with white and I also got gold light – ti was a swirling maelstrom of different colours that came back to me, was lovely. When I read through the exercise as you said about the colour that came back to you I could see pale pink so – yeah would be nice to get some proper references to what each of the the colours mean – it was very relaxing and comforting though 😀
