Teaching Children the Power of Acting from Joy

kid_jumping_hurdleAdults and children alike are here in life to create. Your life experience helps you to fine tune what creation looks like, exactly. Sometimes your desires are born out of living something negative. The negative event helps you better define what you don’t want. Other times, you know your heart’s desire and acting on that fills you with joy.

Isn’t it wonderful when you know what you want? Whether the desire is new or has been simmering in your soul for a long time, how fun is it to feel like the possibilities are unlimited?

When you feel this way, you are at your most powerful. You are in alignment with your highest good, actively attracting from joy.
Feeling good always means that you are in a place of allowing what you want to manifest. This may be an experience, a thing, or even a person.

When you are in this state, you become filled with ideas and take inspired action which then results in your attracting what you want.
By teaching your children to actively seek this place of joy, they will experience how much fun life can be. Even before your desires manifest, it is exciting to plan and research.

You are filled with positive anticipation, knowing that something good is coming your way.

If you approach your desires from a place of fear, lack, or disbelief, then you will have a very different result. Instead of anticipation, you will feel dread and anxiety. Planning and researching will be a chore to be handled rather than a pleasure.

What is it that your children really want to achieve? Do they want to go to a special camp? Do they want to become class president? Do your kids want to be in a play or join a new sports team?

You can teach your children that the best time to think about what they want is when they are already feeling good. Help them to understand that when they are feeling bad, they are cutting themselves off from the flow, and that all the planning in the world will not help.

Even though this may be counter-intuitive, sometimes taking time away from your goals is the fastest way to achieve them. Instead of trying to push through a negative feeling, it is better to take the time to feel better first. Then, once you are feeling better, you will be open to all the possibilities and inspiration the Universe has to offer.
