IMAGINE! Where would you be and what would your life be like today if you had been aware of the power of the Universal Law of Attraction at work in your life when you were a child?
Society has created a multi-million dollar business from the many "self-help" and "how-to" books on the market that focus on the Law of Attraction. Every day I receive emails and bulletins announcing the latest and greatest techniques to receive your heart's desire using the principles of the law of attraction.
I am not disputing the value of many of these ideas. I know the law of attraction works. I know it is at work all of the time for everyone regardless of age, positive or negative. I also know that most everything on the market is designed to help adults alter their thoughts and perceptions learned during childhood to allow their intentions to manifest. But what if we, as parents, could change this for our children?
For example: Let's say your heart's desire is to own a magnificent beachfront home.
As a young child you spent family vacations on Cape Cod. You were raised in a "middle class" family with modest means so your family's vacations were camping trips. That was great fun, but you always admired the luxurious homes that other people vacationed in and sometimes even owned!
You remember the family conversations that took place as you would drive by these exquisite houses:
Your father would say, "What a waste. People with that kind of money should think of a better way to spend it…"
Your mother would say, "I am glad I don't have to clean a house that big…no one needs a house that big!"
Your older brother would say, "I am glad I don't have to mow that big yard…"
Here's the confusion…
All of this is being said while everyone was obviously admiring the property! You knew they admired it because when the property first came in to view, the comments began with things like, "Wow! Look at that house; it's awesome, right on the beach, and look at the size of that yard!"
To the young mind, these are conflicting messages. On one hand, a beautiful home on the beach is very impressive and exciting, but on the other hand, it must also be a bad thing because the people who own it are selfish and wasteful… and let's not forget, who would want to have to work so hard to maintain it?
These conflicting thoughts are embedded into your mind during the years that children are most susceptible to absorbing information. Your thoughts contain this negative confusing message about owning a beachfront property and the people who own them. These thoughts are stored away in your subconscious mind and they become a part of who you are without your awareness, choice or consent.
Now, fast forward to the point where you are a successful business person. You still find that you are drawn to those magnificent beach front homes and decide that you want to own one.
You are aware of the Law of Attraction, the power of positive thinking and have learned through many publications about the process of manifesting. You begin by clearly putting out your intention, you focus on how it is going to be when you realize your intention and are living in that awesome home. You are doing everything that all of those self-help books on the law of attraction have told you to do. You have even created a vision board with pictures of the beachfront homes of your dreams. You put your focus on owning that house, and yet it doesn't happen.
In response, you purchase one more self-help program. This one, "The Missing Secret" by Dr. Joe Vitale, is designed to explain why; why if you are doing everything these books and programs have told you to do are you not seeing your intention manifested?
As you work through Dr. Vitale's program, the answer takes you back to those childhood vacations and those conflicting messages that took root in your subconscious mind. The limiting beliefs that said…"Who would want to be selfish and wasteful? Who would want all that extra work?"
You argue within your mind that you do in fact want that beach house, but as you are now learning, you don't want it in your subconscious mind! Your thoughts that have been stored in your subconscious mind override your thoughts in your conscious mind. Now, you learn that in order to receive what you truly want in your conscious mind, you need to "re-Train" what lives deep within your subconscious mind!
These limiting beliefs that say people who own these beautiful properties are selfish and wasteful and that having such a grand home is way too much work, needs to be removed. With work and dedicated effort, this can be done. This is good news. You are confident and determined and so the "re-training" process begins.
Parents with this knowledge and who understand this concept have the opportunity to greatly impact their children's lives.
The first and by far the most important is to begin by monitoring the thoughts, opinions and perceptions you impose upon your children.
In addition, you can "train" your children by empowering them with an understanding of their power to choose to have a positive mindset that allows for all possibilities for all people, encouraging them to form their own thoughts, rather than automatically accepting the thoughts, ideas and opinions of outside influences without carefully examining them. You can teach your children that they have the power to choose what thoughts they will accept as their own and which thoughts are negative and need to be discarded.
Putting in the effort to "train" your children to choose and accept only positive and healthy views, opinions, and thoughts will remove the need to eliminate limiting beliefs and "re-train" their minds when they reach adulthood. Thus, empowering them with the skills to intentionally create the life they were born to live now and in the future.
