Whenever you want to attract something into your life, you must allow it to come to you first. This means you’re feeling good, happy, joyful. One of the easiest ways to be joyful is by having fun. This may sound obvious, but you may not always recognize that fun is an important tool for yourself and your kids. It can be one of the easiest things to teach them, as children are masters at having fun!

We can’t see the future and know what’s in store for us, but if you are able to stay happy you can be confident that events and experiences will ultimately work out for you. Know this even when you’re not sure exactly how events will unfold.

It can sometimes be easy to slip into fear and worry when you don’t see a clear path in front of you. As a parent, you may want to appear strong and fearless in front of your child, but this isn’t necessarily your best teaching tool.Children will encounter fear in their lives, and it will serve them better to learn tools on how to deal with fear,not ignore it. It’s far better if you can acknowledge your fear and how you’re going to resolve it.

Your children will always feel whatever energy you’re exuding and they’ll know if you’re not being authentic with them. This can cause confusion and add to their fear if they feel you aren’t telling them the truth.

Allowing your life to unfold and trusting life’s processes can be challenging when you’ve allowed fear and worry to take hold. This is why having fun is essential. When you’re having fun, it isn’t possible to feel the negative emotions that fear brings. The two are opposing feelings and therefore, cannot be with you at the same time.

I’m not saying that you should just play and have fun all the time while you hope that life works out. Rather, when you are having fun, it’s easier to focus on your goals and intentions, which causes the energy to move at a faster pace toward what you want. The key is where you place your focus. It should always be on what you desire not what you fear.

Sometimes it’s natural to start feeling anxious. You may have nervous energy caused by an approaching deadline or your kids may feel anticipation about the future as they know their vacation or education is coming to an end.

The key is recognizing that you’re no longer feeling comfortable. This is the signal that it’s time to shift your focus. You can begin focusing on the details of what you’re looking forward to. When you start to feel good, you will be open to receive the inspiration regarding how to move forward and what actions to take.

The important thing is to focus on your desires while feeling good and listening to the inspirations you receive. You may have an idea to search the Internet for information, call a certain someone, or any variety of actions that help you better understand what you need in order to manifest what you want. When you’re feeling good and receive these inspirations, realize that this is your Internal Guidance System (IGS) helping you along the path to your desires. This can start by having fun. Enjoy yourself and teach your children the importance of having fun and how it can be used as a tool to create their lives.
