ADHDchildren

Archive for September 2011

Have you ever hesitated to move forward with a project or life change that on some level you knew was in line with who you really are and why you are here?  If you have read any of my other articles, you know that a large part of my purpose is to raise awareness of natural solutions for the symptoms of a diagnosis of ADHD.

When we are here to illuminate the hearts and minds of others to alternative and healthier options for life, sometimes it takes a while for us to muster up the courage or for others to pay attention and embrace what we have to share.  Dedication and a heart-felt commitment are needed to stay the course.

A tool I have listed on www.facebook.com/adhdchildren is a Success Journal.  This is a wonderful way for children and adults to document daily experiences that create a feeling of joy and success.  On days when you or your child are feeling a little less than successful, open up your very own Success Journal and allow yourself to be reminded of not only the accomplishments you have achieved so far, but also to relive the feelings those accomplishments created inside of you.  Remember that it takes at least 21 days to create a habit, so make sure you and your child stick with the journal for optimum benefit.

If you or your child have a day when even the Success Journal may not give you the hug or push you may need, I recommend body movement.  Not only does body movement and exercise create feel-good endorphins in the brain, but it may also give you a surprise gift from God or the Universe (whatever term you use).  Here’s an example.

Nature always gets me connected to my Source.  One evening recently I needed the expansiveness that nature provides.  So I went for a very long walk near the water.  I took some time to meditate, star gaze and just enjoy the breeze and the gifts of nature.  On the walk back I still wasn’t quite yet in that feel-good place when I saw a little child in a stroller being pushed in my direction by his parents.  This child lit up like a light bulb when he saw me, and he could not take his eyes off of me.  I automatically smiled and waved at him.  As I passed, he turned as much as he could in his stroller and continued to watch me with that huge smile and glow on his face.

While this may not seem significant to you or someone who wasn’t there, it felt like this child was looking at me with eyes of Divine Love.  He absolutely lit up as if he knew me and was glad to see me.  His look was one of which we do not typically use to look at ourselves.  That experience felt like it was a Divine message to see the light inside of me as that child did and continue on with joy to do what I am here to do.

It was not a surprise that God would use a child to touch my heart since it is the children I am here to help but first must reach through the current mindset of their parents and society.  I have had quite a few experiences like that in my life where children look at me in just that way.  Not all children obviously, but those who are meant to remind me I suppose.

Children that young, especially sensitive or gifted children are still connected to the Source from which they came.  They remember until they are conditioned to forget and conform.

My message to you is to look at yourself with that same kind of love, joy and recognition that I received from that young Soul.  Teach your child/ren to do the same.  Also be sure to pay attention to any messages that serendipitously come your way and touch your heart.  It might just be the next entry in your Success Journal.

See and shine the light of you and make it fun!

Enjoy infinite blessings every moment of every day!
