A Where Is My Guru #BookGuru review of The Energetic Keys to Indigo Kids: Your Guide To Raising And Resonating With The New Children by Maureen Dawn Healy.
“Everything is energy. This isn’t a new insight but something that we keep coming back to, especially as our collective consciousness evolves and expands into something new. I see children navigating their lives through the world of energy. They want to feel good so they play, sing, scream, and shout to let their energy out.”
The Energetic Keys to Indigo Kids is all about showing parents how to teach their child or children how to harness their energy, how to constructively direct energy versus allowing it to spiral out of control into tantrums and disruptive behavior.
“Indigo energy… operates often from the imaginative, intuitive, and creative space without regard to “real life” and sometimes even gets misdirected.”
Maureen discusses what an Indigo child is and compares this with the label of highly sensitive children, and talk about how Indigo children need a slightly different approach than other children. However to me, any and all parents can use the lessons in this book to introduce the concept of energy into their child’s life. This book is a guide not necessarily for the “new” children of today, but of the relatively “new” concepts of energy management.
Maureen provides examples throughout the book from her practice with working with children and their parents, as well as many concrete examples of practices she teaches her clients such as affirmations, grounding, yoga, meditation, breath of fire, chakra clearing, smudging, shifting energy, prayer and more.
At the very end of the book, Maureen offers a most beautiful prayer that will touch any parent’s heart. The Indigo Parenting Prayer, here’s a small excerpt.
“May I find peace within and teach it to you.
May I find courage and faith when troubles arise.
May I show you how to persevere and overcome obstacles.
May you feel my love every day of your life.
May I really see you and celebrate you.
May we laugh a lot and play together too.
May I be strong enough to let you dream your dream…”
If you’re wanting to teach your children/child how to understand their own energy and how to manage when they have an excess of it, pick up The Energetic Keys to Indigo Kids and join me this Friday on the Where Is My Guru to wrap up this month’s Guru Mama Series.
