You might find it informative to read the last blog (School Readiness 1) to remember these ideas are in conjunction with the guidelines set out by the Ministry of Health, wearing masks, hand washing, distancing and more. With that in mind, there are energetic ways to offer support to yourself and your loved ones. Fear is powerful. Cumulative fear is fear multiplied; power multiplied. There is reason for concern. This is not the time to turn a blind eye. However, to try to shift the energy, I would like you to consider striving toward a positive outlook, while using the cautionary protocols.
This is a really fun way you can help your child feel more positive and hence more in control of potentially lessening stress which can lead to strengthening the immune system.
Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japanese scientist, studied water, discovering how thoughts, words, music and actions affect its molecular make up. It was not difficult to then correlate his findings to the human body (and to the world around us). If we put kindness into the water, that kindness infiltrates through our body and our surroundings. Every morning as you fill your water bottle give the water blessings of your choice. Write positive words (love, peace, joy, happy, good health, kind, etc.) on the water bottle (or on a washable label placed on the bottle). Place positive words on the water cooler. When walking beside a river or lake, add some kind thoughts and watch the water flow. But most of all, remember saying or thinking kind thoughts to yourself, others and to the environment can help keep the vibrations high within and around you and gives off an air of well-being. Beautiful music (not so much heavy metal) will also increase the good vibes. Keep your energy (vibrations) high by simply thinking, speaking and doing "KIND".
Dr. Emoto took pristine water and exposed it to negative thoughts, words or unsettling music. He also took murky water and exposed it to kind thoughts, words and soothing music. He then froze the water and studied droplets under a very high powered microscope. These experiments and results can be found online. But in a nutshell he saw that crystal like formations were formed in the "blessed" water while the pristine water became murky and muddy looking when exposed to negative energy. https://www.shiftfrequency.com/dr-masaru-emotos-scientific-experiments
Placing messages in water has been one of our hit summer camp activities for years. One session I forgot to have the morning group use “blessed” water for some sprouts we were growing. We used regular tap water. However, the afternoon group used their blessed water. At the end of the week, the sprouts watered with the blessed water, even though started later, showed greater progress than the others. It was an accidental experiment that seemed to prove the water holding love, kindness, happiness and whatever positive thoughts each camper had added was indeed of a higher vibration. A friend had her water tested, both tap water and tap water that had positive words and beautiful music flowing to it. The “blessed” water showed better results. THIS IS FUN! TRY IT.
There are always people who will dispute such claims, but I think the important thing to remember is that kindness is always a good thing. If it helps us remember to be our best selves, it is a place to begin. It’s a place to practice keeping our vibration steadfast in love, above the energy of fear where our body can begin to go into stress.
WATER + KIND THOUGHTS, WORDS, MUSIC & ACTIONS = POSITIVE VIBRATIONS
MALAS, PEBBLES, BUTTONS and BLESSINGS!
One year I had each child in my yoga classes choose a bead. I took the beads and made a mala with them. Each day I blessed each bead (in fact each child). Typically a mala has 108 beads so other people, things, places could be included or you could assign more than one bead per child if you were to do this with your class.
If you do not have a mala, you could just choose a small stone or button or anything at all to represent each child. You could then offer an individual blessing to each – “God bless or I bless Tom, I bless Mary, I bless Bella, etc.” or “ May Jane be peaceful. May Carl be brave. May Henry be calm. May Sally be kind.” This is a lovely way to start each day or send blessings to them each night setting the intent for a good day. You could hold the mala or stones or whatever you have chosen and send a group blessing or loving thoughts. It is nice to touch each one individually with your loving and positive energy though.
Until something better comes along, eat healthy foods. And then when something better comes along, eat healthy food!
