Through becoming a hypnotherapist, I've been awakened to the critical importance of helping children develop their analytical mind - in the most healthy way. Free of labels, fully supported, and by thriving in a ecosystem both at home and at school.
Children are the seeds of our future and the generation that will resolve—from a greater level of consciousness—the conditions and problems the previous generations created.
That’s why the topic of children and how to raise them is incredibly important.
Our Thoughts Become Things. When it comes to mindfulness, I’m hopeful as I see different techniques like yoga and mediation being brought into the classroom. It’s amazing that as children, we’re NEVER taught to better manage our minds.
The goal is to properly encourage children to understand that their thoughts become things, and that they can begin to think and feel in more self-supporting and unlimited ways—based on how they are programmed.
I feel that the earlier the intervention, the better. For example, children between the ages of 0 – 2 produce slow brainwave patterns, which means they function in a realm of delta. These are brainwave patterns that occur in meditation or the deepest stages of sleep. This is why infants only stay awake for short periods of time.
Between the ages of 2 – 6, children’s brainwave patterns move into theta, which is a very hypnotic and suggestible state.
Due to these delta and theta brainwaves, and the fact that they have not yet developed the analytical mind, in the first six years of a child’s life they are very programmable.
Thus, because the editing function of the mind has not yet formed, information goes right into the subconscious mind.
Comments like—big boys don’t cry, little girls should be seen and not heard, you’re not very good at math, money is the root of all evil, you’re like me – you have a short temper—these are all negative suggestions that begin to subconsciously program a child.
If we can negatively influence a child at these early ages with such reinforcements, it makes sense that we can program a child in the opposite way.
Between the ages of 6 – 12, children move into alpha brainwaves, which is the imaginary realm. This stage is where children pretend, play make believe, dream of being astronauts and princesses, and so on. This is the realm of the imagination—a very important realm—because during this stage children are as creative as they are easily influenced.
A child’s analytical mind begins to form right around the ages from 6 – 8. When the analytical mind more fully forms around the age of 12, the tween’s brainwaves move into beta brainwave patterns.
In beta, our attention is predominately on the outer world. This is why it’s important to set up a healthy and supportive ecosystem for children before the analytical mind forms (because it takes very little effort to subconsciously influence them) and why training children with positive suggestions at a young age builds the foundation of who they become later in their life.
Through hypnotherapy, I’ve helped teens understand the principles of postive mind management, what values are, to teach them about their own biology, how hormones influence them, and how to create their own reality.
“The Place Where Thoughts Become Things” is so critical for the overwhelmed mind of our children.
Ultimately, we want to teach people how to create their life by changing their thoughts and feelings so they can build a better future for themselves, the planet, and everyone living on it.
To do this, however, it’s paramount for us to invest in better ways for our children to think, learn, grow, and be programmed in positive ways.
As children grow, their thoughts and feelings can work for or against them, which is why proper supportive positive mind management programming at an early age is essential.
This is the important, fundamental point when it comes to helping children understand how the mind works, how negative self talk destroys their self worth, confidence and ability to grow their skill sets.
In fact, Ive heard that children of parents in this work regularly ask their parents to do the meditation before they go to bed.
Parents report that they love to do this meditation as much as their children, and that they do it together every night before bed.
That habit—children learning to meditate regularly—is a great programming habit in and of itself.
May we never take for granted the power of the mind, and resolving misunderstandings, limiting beliefs or any other blocks holding children and adults from breaking through glass ceilings.
All my love and light! Kassandra
