Top Ten Emotional Needs of Children

Here is a list of what could be considered the top 10 emotional needs of children. However, we all have an inner child, so this applies to us adults as well. Remember to meet your own emotional needs too by being kind and loving to yourself as well as the other adults in your life.
Children have a need to be:

1.      Accepted

2.      Believed in

3.      Cared about

4.      Forgiven

5.      Loved

6.      Safe

7.      Supported

8.      Trusted

9.      Understood

10.   Valued

If parents adequately fill all of these needs, the child’s behavior would take care of itself. If a child or person has positive feelings, then naturally positive behavior will follow.

This is my contribution to stop war and crime on an individual basis. One emotionally healthy person will nurture that in another and they then are able to nurture that in a family. The family nurtures a community, the community a nation, the nation a world.

Blessings for peace and love to the soul of the world.

What to Do When You are in a Yuck Situation?

When you find yourself in a “yuck” situation, the first thing to do is find something to appreciate! Then you’re not messing up other areas of your life.

Because we create our world by how we vibrate and how we vibrate is by how we think, we want to divert our thoughts, therefore our energy, to something we love. Then we will be creating more of that!  

I’m talking about not just thinking appreciation, but feeling appreciation, a surge of significant emotion flowing up from the depths of your being. One way to do this is to imagine what it might feel like to have something wonderful, like you’re your heart’s desire.

On the other hand, maybe you can use a touchstone to get in touch with deeply private memories like a sunset, a river, or a never-to-be forgotten moment such as unspeakable love, spiritual revelation, contentment, or wild joy.

This is the most profoundly important frequency we can hold for it’s the closest thing to cosmic love that exists. At this frequency, we are in perfect harmony with our Source.

Appreciation equals heaven on earth. Can you imagine loving everything you encounter, even the seeming junk? LOL

So, find something to appreciate even when you’re in yuck situations.

When we can’t flip our switch to appreciation, energy healing can help. If you need some help with this, please call me. I have some outstanding tools to help you. We all need a little help at times.

Energy Circles

Have you heard of “The Secret” or the “Law of Attraction?” Energy Circles use the same principle to create our heart’s desire. 

All one has to do is, with intention, stand and with the hand create a circle of energy on the floor out in front of yourself. Then start thinking of all aspects of what you intend to create. 

With each thought (which is energy), put that into the energy circle of your creation. As you build this up, your energy rises with excitement! That’s when creation is at its greatest! 

When you feel complete, which will be about fifteen to twenty seconds, jump into the middle of the circle, anchor your thought forms into your body by patting it with the hands starting at the feet and work your way up to the top of your head. At that point, release it into the universe for manifestation with arms outstretched toward the sky and then cross your arms across your heart in appreciation. It is done! 

Do this on a daily basis until your creation is here in physical manifestation. 

Happy creating!

Are you Attached to Your Creations?

Being that you are focused in this physical reality, do not become attached to what you have already created because you can create something else just as easily. 

We can become attached to what already is by our beliefs, thinking we cannot create nor have something else. Instead, concentrate upon what you want and allow it. 

Some of our creations can change in the blink of an eye when we change our perceptions about it. It is a reflection of our belief, or in other words, what we expect. Even when someone else is involved, they are playing a role in our world based on our beliefs.

Are there Earth Angels amongst us?

I have a new service I’m providing now. It’s called an Energy Reading or a Soul Path Reading. It’s an intuitive way of perceiving what is going on with a person’s energy system. 

For an example of what that is about, I did an energy reading on a client recently. She is like an Earth Angel. Her energy in her crown chakra was open to receive messages from spirit; therefore, making her a conduit of healing energy, both from the energy coming from her hands and her words to people in need. She does this by choice.  

She told me this reading was a real confirmation for her, something she wanted and was asking for in her life. Both of us were getting chills during the reading. It was a lot of fun! 

How a reading works: First, I find out how you are doing with your energy in general. Then, I tell you where you are on your path and some other aspects of your life such as, your communication with yourself and others, etc. I also go through your energy centers and let you know how you are doing in those areas of your life. 

It is healing because it is validating and you have a new awareness about what you are unconsciously doing with your energy and how to change it. 

Call me now for your Soul Path Reading at (801) 968-4246. I would be excited to serve you in this way.

Being Authentic vs. Mindlessness

We are often distracted from what is truly important to us by objects of compelling illusive desire, such as the big house and fancy car. In addition, we are drawn to the captivation of the mindless distraction of playing computer games, casino games, the countless addictions we engage in, anything that will distract us when we are feeling overwhelmed and/or disconnected. Instead, what would feed your soul? What would rouse you to be authentic in your expression?

I Choose Wholeness & Peace

There is a distortion of our soul on such a profound level that needs to be brought to our awareness if we are to feel whole and have peace.

I went to a Sundance movie screening recently at the college. It was about how women in the media are portrayed as sex objects rather than real human beings who are capable of greatness. I saw this same kind of information about twenty years ago and things seem to be getting worse. 

There is no denying that women are portrayed as sexual objects in the media. We have all seen the sexy females in places where it feels incongruent. For example, while watching the TV show, House, the woman in charge of the hospital looks like she is ready to go on a romantic date rather than run a hospital. We see the animated women who are skimpily dressed using brute force like a man would do to fight against evil. We may have even seen how men and women in news commentaries make comments about a woman’s looks rather that her abilities and contributions. 

In the video, they showed a news commentary, a discussion between men on what it would be like if more women occupied spaces in politics. One man’s comment was that the effect would be PMS and mood swings rather than having a balancing effect from a different perspective on actions and decisions made. 

What is also interesting is that women in other countries have more positions of power than what they do here in the U.S.  Women make up 51% of the population here in the U.S. and hold only 17% of the positions in politics. 

Because media (TV, radio, internet) has the ability to socialize us, this kind of portrayal of women has a detrimental effect on the self-esteem of the female population. Being an “object” means women are here to please another with no thought or concern for their own wellbeing or desires. We see this play out in the way women and adolescent females dress with lots of cleavage, both front and back, in an effort to be more “sexy.” Females usually dress to the nines and most males dress casually. Being an object also makes it easier for abusers to hurt or kill because it takes the humanness out of the act. 

This kind of socialization not only has an impact on females it has a huge impact on males. Males at a very young age are taught to disrespect females by perceiving them as sexual objects and to use them for their own pleasure. This does not and cannot have a good impact on their self-worth to treat people this way.
Besides the effect on self-worth for both males and females, we have so much casual sex going on. This is happening at an extremely young age. Adolescent girls and boys are having such casual sex it’s alarming. Along with that comes venereal disease and new babies who also grow up in this atmosphere and it goes on and on. 

What this does to the psyche on a soul level is damaging. Males using females, females being used, then in turn using males because of the imbalance of power. I know what it is like from my perspective and it doesn’t feel good to be objectified. Diminishing value of my being is what it feels like to me. 

When we are conditioned to live this way it goes against the grain of our soul, we know it doesn’t feel right, yet we have a hard time doing things differently because we need to have an awareness of what is actually going on here. Until we shine a light on it and put a name on it, we will continue to do things as we’ve always done them. 

In reading the book “Return of the Bird Tribes” by Ken Carey, there is a part about the White Buffalo Calf Woman. She comes upon two young Sioux hunters. The one brother lusts after her. She grants him his wish,

 “And so the second brave was left standing alone on the prairie, watching as his bother walked off, apparently enjoying the mysterious woman in the swirling cloud of dust that for awhile hid them both from sight. When the dust settled enough to see, there was the woman, binging slowly together the stitches of her dress. At her feet, partially decomposed, lay a corpse, alive with worms, beetles and a cloud of hungry flies.” 

Is this symbolic of the death of his soul? The brother was still standing. 

White Buffalo Calf Woman states, 

“A man who looks first to a woman’s outer beauty will never know her beauty divine, for there is dust upon his eyes and he is as good as blind. But a man who sees in a woman the spirit of the Great One and who sees her beauty first in spirit and in truth, that man will know God in that woman; and should she choose to lie with him, he will share with her in enjoyment more fully that the former ever could. And all will be as it should.” p. 52 

This is a new paradigm for us and it has been in the making for a long time. It is not a war between the sexes, but a time for healing our souls. Now we are consciously aware of this, we have the power to choose what we want. I choose to feel whole and have peace.
