From the guides:
This is a question that we know is of great personal interest to you. This is a very timely and important question. Parenting in this time on the planet is tricky…it is challenging for parents who would be oriented toward a certain kind of consciousness and who want to raise their children with let’s say, more “humanistic” values…values that are in-keeping with the harmony of the planet, with the raising of consciousness on the planet.
There is much to be desired in terms of the state of children and the state of parenting on your planet…there are many challenges which arise. One of which is your media, and the kinds of things that children are exposed to. One of which is the internet, and parenting in the age of the internet. We know you sense the challenges inherent in parenting on the planet at this time. The first thing we want to point out to you is this: that balance is needed in terms of how this issue is perceived.
We would like for you to not overstate the case in terms of the difficulties of parenting on the planet at this time. We would like you to understand that children, as they have always been, remain a source of joy for their parents, and a reminder to them of the pure Source energy from which they came. That has not changed. There is much to be enjoyed in the parent-child relationship even with all the challenges.
The second thing we want to point out to you is that the children who are coming in and choosing parents at this time, are a little different from the children in the past. That may be a source of difficulty for your traditional systems of schooling and education. The children coming in have more of a handle on who they are, and they are not needing their parents to tell them the truth of who they are.
This deep inner knowing within them of course, may be perceived perhaps as them being a little rebellious…they are unwilling at deeper levels to be told what to do because they know who they are. They are needing their parents less to tell them who they are. They even know more about the true nature of their parents than their parents know of themselves. So they are radiating a purity – where their essential nature is not watered down in terms of how they experience life in a body, life in the midst of social conventions and mass societal norms.
This is what parents are needing to be aware of, first and foremost – that the type of children coming onto the planet at this time are more independent of mind and are less inclined to be told what to do. How do you balance this, then? Being a parent – and needing to instruct and impart, with the need to allow your children to be who they are?
The first thing to help with this is allow them to be children. Allow your children to be children. This is what will allow for the most harmonious relations between parent and child. As parents, learn from their undiluted joy. Allow them to teach you how to lighten up. Allow them to remind you how to play, for play is the expression of joy, and joy is the expression of Source. In being childlike, they tease out the joyfulness in you, their parents.
We also do not wish for you to shield them…to overshield them. Children must, at the earliest, understand that they are creators. Many of your young children understand this fact more basically than you do. Encourage them to understand the relationship between their thought and their reality. Encourage them to understand the relationship between their actions and the consequences that meet them. Encourage them to be responsible. To take greater responsibility for themselves…so that they are not looking to you, even though you are their parents, to solve all their problems. Encourage their sovereignty and independence as beings.
So it is a bit of a tightrope…allowing them to be children, and to be carefree…but also allowing them to cultivate a sense of responsibility. Responsibility is the hallmark of the human. Of the evolved human. We would wish for you to encourage your children to grow in that direction.
The greatest direction we can give you is to allow your parenting to remind them of their own knowing. Of their own connection to their Source. Of their own connection to their creativity and ingenuity. These children are very smart….very, let’s say, innovative. They are less bogged down by the mental barriers that would get in the way of conceiving very progressive ideas. Encourage them to experiment, to play and to imagine.
Why are we saying overshielding them from danger and “bad influences” isn’t the answer? We will make it clear once more. We are saying this because we want to encourage you to understand, as parents, that you cannot take the place of their own inner wisdom. So rather than turning in a thousand different directions to shield them from the plethora of influences that you deem negative, we would rather you spend more of your time encouraging them to use their own inner compass to figure out what is more desirable, and what is less desirable.
It does not mean you abdicate your responsibility as parents. We are not encouraging a “free for all”, ultra-permissive environment for your children. You will, as awakening parents, have to do your part in instructing and guiding. And we encourage you as parents to cultivate more of an awareness of your own inner guidance…as it pertains to parenting your children, and being sensitive to the needs of your children, and the difference in wiring between your children. Be moved more by your inner guidance, and less by the opinions of other parents.
Encourage a loving, playful environment at home. Eat meals together. Play together with your children. Allow them to teach you. Enjoy them. Have fun. Allow them to remind you of the delightful simplicity and joy of being in a human body. See how the children delight in their bodies…this is why they “zoom” and shoot, and run all over the place. They are delighted with Source energy moving through them in this fresh environment, and they are delighted by what a human body is capable of doing. They are far more experimental and supple than you are. You can learn from that.
Encourage their own clarity of mind by first finding your own. Be steadfast, and remain grounded as you parent. And above all, trust what your children are here for, and what they have come in to accomplish of their own accord.
With that we will depart.
Note: I am still opening up to the perspectives shared here, because I am so acutely aware of the challenges that parents and children face….from inoculations, to the internet and attendant devices, the education system, and everything in between. Part of me still struggles with what I perceive is the huge responsibility of parenting in a time on the planet such as this. It’s still a bit challenging to not “overstate” the case for the less desirable influences on the planet, and to understand that these children coming in are soul-fortified to be here, and they are perfectly aware of the environment they are coming into.
