How many times have you thought about what your life would be like if you knew about the Law of Attraction when you were younger?

Now you have the chance to teach it to your children – to instill in them these principles of positive living and to help them to understand how powerful they actually are!

Every parent wants their kids to have a happy and abundant life, and there’s no greater abundance than making them aware of their own greatness. And you know that you can’t provide for them forever – so teach them how to provide for themselves while they’re young, how to deliberately receive everything they want from life.

You probably have your own idea about how to do it, but you can still find these tips useful:

You Don’t Even Have to Call It “The Law of Attraction”

Most parents fear that their children will be ridiculed at school when they start explaining to other kids how manifestation works. The thing is, you don’t have to explain it to them. They don’t have to know what this universal Law is called, they don’t have to know how it works.

Children are much more intuitive than us, they’re much closer to understanding this knowledge than we are, and, when encouraged, they almost automatically live with purpose and passion. So teaching the LoA to the children is much more intuitive and much easier than teaching it to the adults (remember how it was when you started?).

Do you know why? They still haven’t had the chance to develop limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviors. They already believe that everything is possible!

So what you can do is:

1. Teach Them to Honor Their Emotions

Emotions are our primary guidance system; if something “feels good” then it’s moving us closer to our authentic selves, and vice versa. But we often misinterpret the feelings we have, or we call them something else because we were taught that “bad feelings are wrong”.

If you want your child to stay authentic, don’t try to dismiss his or her feelings. If your daughter tells you that she hates a girl from school, don’t tell her that she doesn’t. She does, in that moment she actually hates her. And that’s OK. She’ll learn how not to hate anyone as she grows, but if you tell her now that what she is feeling isn’t OK, or worse, that what she’s feeling isn’t true – she’ll learn not to trust herself. And that’s the worst thing you can do for her.

Instead, honor her feelings (even if it’s hatred). Validate her anger (not in the sense “you’re right, she’s really bad” but in the lines of “it’s OK to be angry”); don’t judge her feelings, just acknowledge them. Perhaps she’s feeling bad for being angry – let her know it’s OK.

Then ask her what she needs – if she needs a hug or some time alone. Don’t assume that you know what she needs, don’t take that role off of her – let her find her own way to calm down.

Ask her to tell you what happened – that way she’ll be able to analyze the situation and, as you and her practice this, to figure out that what happened (whatever it was) was the result of their perspective – their own thoughts. Then help her to find other thoughts, thoughts that will make her feel better.

You can even make up a game: for example, you could ask her (but only when she calms down!) to imagine what the situation could be if her perspective of that other girl was different, and let her talk about it and living it in  her head.

This way you’re teaching her a few things:

  • To acknowledge her feelings, instead of hiding from them (a behavior she’d develop later if you’d constantly telling her that what she feels is wrong)
  • To analyze her thoughts that brought about the situation and to gradually start choosing better ones (as she figures out that her own perspective can change the end result, she’ll soon start choosing the positive thoughts deliberately).

2. Teach Them How to Manifest Stuff

First of all – don’t limit their desires!

If your little girl wants to be a princess when she grows up, don’t tell her that she can’t and that she could be, say, a dentist instead. If she wants to be a princess, let her believe that she will be a princess!

It’s not the desire that’s important here (it will almost certainly change with time), it’s what the desire represents. Perhaps she thinks that princesses are beautiful, and what she actually wants id to be beautiful. Don’t take that away from her, don’t make her think that she can’t be beautiful (or whatever it is she truly wants) but that she can be smart instead. Let her have it – that’s the only way she will have it.

Now, the manifesting part.

Let’s say that your kid wants that latest, super expensive toy that you can’t afford right now. One sure way to ruin the possibility for him to have it is to tell him that you don’t have the money and that he won’t get it. But another thing you could do is to let him talk about it, to feed the dream. Ask him what he’d do with it, would he let his friends play with it, imagine together how much fun they’d have.

That’s how you manifest, right? By feeding the feeling of being in possession of what you want. That’s how your kid will manifest it too 🙂

Use any technique you want: making a vision board or a Wish Box (to put in the stuff related to manifestation, stuff that feel good) together will probably be the funniest way for them. And that’s where the teaching part comes: make sure that they focus on what they want instead of focusing on what they don’t want, or to the lack of it. 

And… when the manifestation happens, celebrate it! It’s really important to make your kid aware that it’s him who made it happen!

Have fun watching your children attract to them that which they desire!
