Acknowledging in thoughts, words and actions that our children are sacred beings reminds us as parents to be open with our own hearts.
A parent who is conscious with clear, healthy and healing intentions has a thought process which supports and transmits this coherently. Thus, the action stemming from the thoughts of the parent nourishes the mental, physical, spiritual and emotional growth of the child. I can think of nothing more important to healthy perspectives than the words we use to describe ourselves, others, and especially the children.
In almost every indigenous language of what is now known as the Americas there is a word for children that translates to English as sacred beings. Acknowledging in thoughts, words and actions that our children are sacred beings provides not only the necessary healthy intention and consciousness that will benefit our children; this acknowledgement reminds us as parents to once again be open with our own hearts.
As parents we are responsible for guiding the healthy development of our children. The most important aspect of this is nourishing and protecting the sacred. Every child born is an answered prayer to not only the parents of the child, but the world. Every child born brings life giving water to quench the thirst of dried hearts. Every word and action given to the children from parents and other adults demonstrates how we as parents and adults see, or don’t see ourselves. Every word and action given to the children either supports their understanding of what they are as sacred Beings, or takes them further from it.
The connection of our hearts and minds is what parents are supposed to be cultivating and protecting. This is how the sacred speaks through us. Unfortunately this is the first thing to break, leaving behind a long trail of pieces for someone else to pick up, or not.
Knowing children as sacred beings brings forth a healthy and healing strength of humility from within us as parents and adults. The youth are our teachers with a profound message for this world. When we as parents and adults acknowledge the Sacredness within ourselves it becomes difficult to not acknowledge this within others – especially our children. We have all been manifested as sacred beings, and although we are able to forget, we are unable to change the truth of what we have been created as, and always will be.
For parents who struggle to see themselves as sacred beings, simply allow your children to remind you of what you’ve forgotten. At birth through their newborn cries the children sing a song to their parents and the world. At this very moment hundreds of sacred beings, answered prayers, messengers of light are manifesting in all cultures and languages. They’re all entering this world singing a song of a sacred contract that can never be broken, only temporarily forgotten. The children’s song is reminding us. Listen…
You cannot be entrusted with something you’re not
It’s alright if you’ve forgot
I’m here to remind you so that we remember together
And bring others with us on the most important endeavor ~
On Earth as it is in Heaven
