I truthfully think about this a lot actually, he is only 9 months so it’s not like he’s deep in philosophical discussion right now lol he’s my little scientist who likes to explore though 🙂
My love and I are both very spiritual, Adam awakened when he was about 14 and if you want labels he’s pretty much a crystal child like myself. We’re both deeply spiritual so i would imagine i would be as upfront and honest with him as possible. I really don’t believe in censorship or considering that children are “lower” than us because we are adults i think that is very backward thinking. I would love to teach him about being aware, how there are angels and guides, how fears work, meditation, etc. but i also just want him to be whoever he wants to be, i don’t want to force ideas on him. It’s truthfully a learning experience, i think being a parent is like being a guide for them, showing them the path that they learn to walk. Our new home is going to incorporate all sorts of different cultures because that’s just naturally how we are, we cook that way and we also both don’t believe in an anthropomorphic god so i really wouldn’t want to teach him through western religion.
Being a parent is kinda crazy in some ways, you don’t really think about it but you’re the person who helps them create all of their ideas and projections before they can start having their own revelations. You are their guiding light. I think it’s important not to limit our children. Like my cousin couldn’t deal so she ended up drugging her 5 year old and 7 year old because they “might” have adhd. I think adhd is such a bs illness. I wouldn’t want to mask his natural abilities over something like that. Not to fall into a tangent but Spirituality is important for anyone, so i really want to try to incorporate it into his life in a very freeing way. 🙂
I am honestly torn about the whole santa claus and easter bunny craze because it’s important for them to keep their imagination but it’s also loaded with false illusions and lies. I’m still uncertain on what i’m going to do for that.
Imagination is so important, especially for creating and also for developing our brain, Spirituality should incorporate as much imagination as possible for children because it helps them grasp the concepts of it. Honestly it’s just something i am learning every day, he teaches me new things all the time. You have to think about it, kids ask all sorts of questions and i really want to be honest and truthful with him, rather than mask him from the real answers. Spirituality is more important than religion because it teaches us about ourselves and the world around us.
I’m just learning each day at a time just like you 🙂
much love <3
