Is Energy Healing Safe For Children?

Is Energy Healing Safe For Children?

Energy healing is a process of eliminating negative energies from the body and increasing the availability of positive energies flowing throughout your being. This process is usually described through healing quotes as being a part of a holistic approach to life. Many people have found that once they start practicing energy healing techniques that they are more easily relaxed, calmed, and able to enjoy their life. Most of these people also find themselves less likely to face illness or stress. This has a lot to do with the accumulation of positive versus negative energies.

But what about your children? Is energy healing safe for them? If you have a child that is frequently sick or facing depression, you may want to consider whether or not you want to introduce the principles of Reiki or Qigong. If the child is too young, it may not be possible for him or her to fully grasp or understand the process. But many people will easily realize that they can provide guided meditation to their child to provide energy healing an experience that enables them to rid the body of negative energy and to absorb more positive energy.

It’s a commonly known fact that the body has a hard time differentiating between reality and the imagination. For instance, imagine a lemon. If you take a bit into that lemon, your body will react by salivating. This is because your mind is imagining a process that is causing the body to react. All actions of the body are dictated by the simulation of the mind. It’s just that reality is an interpreted simulation of the 3d space in which we exist. Boy, that’s complicated, isn’t it?

Anyway, providing your child with guided meditation is an easy way to ensure that he or she finds a way to participate in an energy healing routine. You do not need to hire a Reiki practitioner or anyone else to help with this process. You simply need to find some guided meditation scripts and sit down with your sick child, helping to guide him or her through the process as described in the script.

If you are dealing with a child with depression, you may have a far more interesting challenge ahead of you. Many children suffering from depression are suffering from so much negative energy that it can be hard to push it out of their body with positive energy flows. You may need to spend some time exploring different types of energy healing with them and finding which peaks their interest the best, as that will be the one that is most likely to yield results. If you find they are resisting, be careful. You don’t want to push them too far away from this potential cure to their ailment.

Many people have successfully introduced energy healing to their depressed children or used guided meditation to help heal sick children. The answer is, yes! Energy is not only okay for children, but it’s an important way to help them, too.

DAY 20: Imitation

DAY 20: Imitation

DAY 20: Imitation

Children love to imitate their parents and the wider world around them, as they learn vital lessons about the rich tapestry of life…

Whenever we are out and a fire engine races by, on it’s way to a fire or another emergency, you can guarantee that when we get home our little three and a half year old will get his own toy fire engine out from the toy box and recreate the scene he has witnessed outside.

Similarly when Mummy is hoovering or dusting around the home, our Son has to get involved with his own housework in imitation of Mummy. When Mummy is cooking he stands there right by her side insisting that he be allowed to make something for the oven too.

Today’s image demonstrates that imitation is copying or reflecting things others do and is inspired by the way our little boy likes to get out his camera whenever I’m taking photographs. He has watched me setting my camera equipment up so many times since he was born back in 2004, so now he has a toy camera out it comes and he snaps happily away when I’m taking images.

He imitates me in so many ways including always putting his wrist through the camera strap, looks through the viewfinder when getting ready to take an image, makes sure the cover is over the lens after taking images and afterwards carefully reviews the images he has taken. He has even set up a pretend computer in his bedroom to imitate manipulating the images afterwards.

We look forward to seeing his real images, when he gets a proper camera, and I have no doubt I’ll be imitating his photographic skill.

Note: image taken with a Canon 5D mounted on a Manfrotto 055CB Professional Tripod – subject located in very large light tent lit by two Canon 580EX flashes. On the surface this may look like a very simple image, but in fact it was a very complicated set-up and proved frustrating to get exactly as I wanted it. As always I aim for simplicity but achieving such simplicity is far from simple.

This image is part of the The Things Children Play With 30 day challenge gallery.

The Computer Room

The Computer Room

My big concern before i came out is that the schools primary need would be for physical installation and computer maintenance – skills those who know me know i possess extremely little of. Various queries to Emma were met with reassuring, yet decidedly non-definite, assurances that this would not be the case.

Yet on my first day i was met with the site of around 20 10+ yr old base units smothered in dust and in various states of decay and disassembly; some 2 dozen monitors in a similar state and a plethora of discs, CDs, cables and peripherals scattered in boxes, on the floor and piled on tables. Rats had done considerable damage to the cables and insides of many of the base units and i had not one actual functioning PC!

This pic shows the state of things after a good week of cleaning and auditing.

Now things are much improved – i have a decent P3 with 40Gb hard drive as a master ‘puta, 2 Dell P3 laptops and a motley yet fully-functioning collection of 8 working mid 1990’s Pentium 1’s (or less!), with between 16 – 64 MB memory and sub 2Gb hard-drives all running Windows 98 and Office 2000. each has a working floppy and CD drive (from quad speed to the lightening quick 8x *LAUGH**) with various bits culled from the dozen or so fatalities that are now good only as footstools (or the last refuge of the wretched Ratticus Cableus Chewitus)

All have full virus protection – the laptops and the P3 master ‘puta were riddled with serious worms & viruses that almost derailed the entire project by infecting my essential and precious flash drives

I’m damn proud of what’s been achieved so far and the best is yet to come…..
