Children are the hands by which we take hold of heaven -Henry Ward Beecher
We are at a time on planet when it is crucial to support the children and honour their new way of being. Reiki is a perfect way to begin helping our children. It is one of the very beneficial ways that children can be shown how to use their innate abilities as divine co-creators.
Children Want to Learn
The children are telling us it is time to teach them. In their own way they are telling us they would like to be connected to their true spiritual nature in a way that they can easily integrate into every aspect of their lives. Reiki is the perfect vehicle.
The New Children
You may have heard of the Star Children, Indigo Children or Crystal children and are wondering what these names mean. As we evolve on this planet there is a new type of human being born who carries with them a greater understanding. On the physical level they actually have extra strands of DNA. On the spiritual level they are often highly evolved and very intuitive. They may be clairvoyant, clairsentient, and/or able to communicate telepathically. The first wave of these new beings is referred to as the Indigo Children. They have received this name because the clairvoyant can see an indigo colour present in their aura. These children present with many different gifts as well as challenges and are often misunderstood. They have been diagnosed with such things as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) or Autism.
What our society fails to understand is that there is often nothing wrong with these children. Many are unable to cope with the way our present systems are set up. They learn differently and can often operate on many levels at once. They know when they are being lied to or manipulated. They often act out because they feel helpless in the midst of any kind of deception or betrayal. Some of these children tend to shut down because the world is just too overwhelming for their highly sensitive nature. They do not need to be fixed or drugged. What they really need is for us to see that there can be a different way to do things.
The second wave of new children is being referred to as the Crystal children. They are beautiful both inside and out. These children have innate spiritual gifts and are recognised by their radiant, clear crystalline aura. They are the healers and their eyes reflect the divine light. They seem to have an ability to look right into your soul. The Crystal children are coming in with clarity and understanding of their divine purpose. They seem to have a less difficulty than the Indigo children.
All children are our teachers, assisting us with a new way of being. Our job is to be willing to wake up and see what they are trying to show us. There are many ways we can begin to create a world for them where they will be honoured and supported.
Reiki Kids are Highly Sensitive by Maureen Healy
This is an excerpt from an article of the Reiki News magazine.
Our children are being born more sensitive than ever.
They hate scratchy clothing, mean words and loud noises. Scientists estimate that between 15–20 % of children today are born with high sensitivity, although my experience tells me that it’s much higher. Of course, the challenge comes when their gentle nature rubs up against our sometimes not-so-sensitive world. So what can they do? Well, you may have guessed it—they can receive and learn Reiki.
How Reiki Helps Sensitivity
Lauren, aged twelve, said: “Reiki helps me feel tired” and that’s true. She had trouble sleeping and feeling relaxed before she got Reiki treatments.
Marco, aged nine, told me: “I love helping with Reiki.” Marco is the “go to” person on his block in Los Angeles for fixing headaches and tummy problems.
Alessandro, aged 8, told me: “I want to give back some Reiki to my Mom. Can you teach me too?”
Sensitive boys or girls giving or getting Reiki, experience growth in very specific and important life skills:
Self-Confidence – When sensitive boys and girls participate in giving someone Reiki it shows that they have tangible skills. Whereas some children might demonstrate their skills through a display of their soccer trophies, these children have a crystal collection and Reiki certification to show their attainments . It makes the invisible very visible, so they feel empowered on their path. Receiving Reiki is also a confirmation for them that the power to heal is within all of us.
Calmness – Reiki helps sensitive children become calmer, especially when our world feels hectic and overwhelming. As in Lauren’s situation, it’s very practical to use Reiki to help someone sleep or feel more relaxed in high-stress situations (i.e. test-taking, performing, sporting events).
Centeredness – Sensitive children feel more deeply and are quick to respond. So by building up a practice of Reiki (receiving or giving), they learn how to access their center and take a “sacred pause” before acting. Emma told me, “I love Reiki. It helps me feel OK when I used to cry,” and I couldn’t have said it better.
Connection (to self and others) – Connecting with others in the Reiki world empowers sensitive children and helps them find their way. Althea, aged thirteen, told me: “I love, love, love coming to your classes and making new friends.” I teach a Reiki class at which a large group of intuitive kids come together, and they always laugh as well as make friends (it’s that birds of a feather idea).
Spirituality – Sensitive boys and girls tend to believe in something greater whether it’s God or Nature. By becoming familiar with Reiki, they can begin to rely on the fact that “something greater” is in and around their lives helping them. One of my students, Noah, said: “God is in these crystals” and then we put Reiki into the crystals. It is the beginning of a spiritual practice.
On the Path
Highly sensitive children are learning how to become strong from the inside out, and Reiki helps them on their way. Of course, it isn’t the only way to help these intuitive and perceptive children, but it does strengthen their growing sense of self-confidence and resilience and ultimately, their ability to create true happiness.
