Nurturing children through Meditation on Stillness

 

The first bloom of Spring brings people feelings of joy, happiness and is representative of new beginnings. This doesn’t happen without first planting a seed and having a period of nurturing time and care for it to healthily grow.

 This is similar with children – we must put in the time, patience, love and nurturing attention in order for them to healthily develop, grow and blossom.

 From the moment they are in the womb, Mums-to-be knows to take care of their unborn babies physically, via healthy eating, exercise and by avoiding overexertion. As children grow, as well as their physical needs being looked after, a child’s emotional and mental wellbeing needs to be carefully managed to provide a balanced foundation, to develop resilience and to help them to more easily overcome any struggles and obstacles that are present in everyday life.

 Mental health issues are not only growing in society, but they also are now commonplace and occur more frequently than not with the vast majority of people not knowing how to cope, let alone get better. Young people are struggling with pressures put upon them by family, peers and even themselves, with no help from social media to exacerbate their feelings of inadequacy and hopelessness.

The key to helping our children is by equipping them with techniques and tools that will prevent problems before they arise. Instead of identifying problems and then finding solutions, the solutions need to be put into place first so that problems can be minimised and even avoided.

The Meditation on Stillness was created by Les Flitcroft to empower children to manage worries, fears and control emotions. This fantastically simple technique also helps to increase confidence, promote better relationships and interaction with others, reduce anxiety and enhance overall happiness and wellbeing. The sessions are designed to be fun and enjoyable, incorporating simple breathing techniques along with a relaxing guided meditation.  

Children’s’ Relaxation Sessions with the Meditation on Stillness are currently run in various schools across the UK & Ireland, all with tremendous benefits across age groups. There are also CD’s available, and so can be incorporated as a daily routine within the comfort of your own home. The results can be seen in just a short space of time with regular practice.

We all want our children to grow and flourish into happy and healthy adults. The way to achieve this is to help them to understand their own thoughts and emotions, and give them the ability to manage them so that they don’t get overwhelmed. 

With the Meditation on Stillness, children feel more empowered as they learn to regulate and become in control of their emotions. Negative situations will still arise in their lives, but the difference is that they will be able to deal and cope with these obstacles with a clear mind, more awareness and maintain a greater sense of wellbeing.

Happy Families – Supportive Ways to Keep the Peace

 

Would you like to know the secrets to happy family life?
Do you want harmony and peace at home?

Enjoying time with the people that you love creates some of the best memories you will have.  Family members or those close to you have the ability to influence and shape who you are, they can build you, define you but they can be challenging too.  

Relationships can create a rollercoaster of emotions that impact every aspect of life.

 As I started learning about energy, I never expected that it would change the way I viewed and managed my relationships.  For me, I’ve noticed that my relationships with my family are absolutely key to my health and wellbeing. In periods where I’ve experienced a strained relationship with a family member, I’ve noticed it will often coincide with greater tension in my body, physical pain, lack of concentration and lower energy levels. This is no coincidence.  

As I’ve started to understand the link between emotions and my physical and mental health through the Pranic Healing courses, it has become very clear to me that building awareness of and managing my thoughts about those around me is a key ingredient for building and maintaining strong, positive and peaceful relationships.  

When you think about it, relationships are a continuous exchange of energy between individuals on several levels.  Have you ever noticed how some people have the ability to make you feel tired and low? Whereas other people can immediately make you smile and feel great?  This is a perfect example of how other people’s energy can affect you. What you radiate is related to your thoughts and emotions. Your thoughts and emotions will be impacting your family members all the time.  Think about a time when you’ve been in a really positive frame of mind – have you noticed how it’s affected those around you? Positive thoughts nurture another person. 

There will always be continuous strains placed upon the relationships around you and the challenge is to find ways to let go quickly of any hurt, remain positive about your loved ones and to help keep the peace within a family unit.  Understanding relationships from an energetic viewpoint is a fundamental starting point. The Institute of Pranic Healing UK & Ireland holds regular seminars on managing your personal and professional relationships. 

At these sessions, you will learn techniques to help keep the peace and secrets to achieve healthy and harmonious relationship success. 

As I’ve come to understand, even the strongest relationships need nurturing but the key to doing so comes from within.

Help teenagers breeze through interviews & life!

Would you like to discover simple success secrets and help teenagers before it’s too late?

Many of us know only too well the pressure job interviews can have on us physically, emotionally and mentally. We may struggle with fear, panic and pangs of self-doubt during these seemingly stressful situations. It can take years of pain to learn how to be calm, happy and focused in interviews so the earlier we learn to deal with them the better. Imagine mastering stressful situations from a young age with the advantage of sparing teenagers years of future interview anguish.

What if there were some easy to apply techniques you could learn to relax and create positive self-esteem to increase a teen’s likelihood of getting hired? 

In a survey of 2,000 bosses questioned, a third indicated that they knew within the first ninety seconds if a candidate was suitable for a post with ‘non-verbal’ indicators accounting for 55%. The candidate’s general presence, confidence and body language tipped the decision as to whether they were made a job offer.

A way to understand ‘non-verbal’ communication is to see it as ‘energy’.

Energy is pervasive and affects all areas of our lives, through our health and mental wellness, in our relationships and through our finances.

Have you ever walked into a room and it just doesn’t ‘feel’ right? Or have you stood next to someone in a queue, and felt like you needed to distance yourself?

We all have an internal antenna which picks up on this ‘energy’

The great news is that by learning simple techniques taught at Pranic Healing courses you can learn the importance of this energy and ‘fine-tune’ your antenna. You will understand how to radiate success and attract prosperity. 

You will learn how to feel calmer and happier, have inner peace and more clarity – much needed attributes to be successful in stressful situations such as job interviews.

You will learn practical skills to use energy to improve the quality of your life and that of others through:

  1. Breathing – a specific method found to flush out stress energy within the system to rapidly bring a sense of calm.
  2. Meditation on Twin Hearts – a scientific study found that this particular meditation decreased heart and respiratory rates so great for calming nerves.  It increased: gamma wave brain activity, memory recall, sensory perception, ability to synthesise information, more focused attention, compassion, feeling of oneness, more joy and inner peace.
  3. Pranic Healing – using non-touch techniques learn how to remove stress and negative emotions from the energy body. Tackles fears, phobias and even addictions which can sabotage success.

Whether you want to be able to help teenagers breeze effortlessly through interviews and land the right job or are looking to help yourself and your family in any other life situation before it’s too late, then don’t delay, register for a Pranic Healing course today.

End of Term – 5 Ways to Sail through the Summer Holidays

The summer is finally here, and for parents with school children, there’s a long six weeks holiday looming. Many may be feeling relieved at the thought of a break from the rigorous term time routine but for others, this may bring feelings of trepidation about how to juggle childcare, work, daily activities plus how to cope with challenging behaviours that might rear up from children during this time.

Here are 5 simple but effective suggestions to help you sail through the summer:

1.     Downtime and Stillness

The end of term is typically accompanied by extremely tired and emotional children so allowing them to rest and recuperate is a crucial element to the start of any holiday period.    Slower mornings and easy days at home, reconnecting with toys, books and games that don’t involve the internet will help children to relax and clear their minds. The popular ‘Children’s Meditation on Stillness’ by Les Flitcroft is a great technique to introduce to them as it gives them a sense of happiness, calms their emotions and helps them to better manage friendships.

2.     Get Active

Fresh air and physical exercise offer so many benefits to the emotional and mental health of children. Days out will not only help them to discover new places and try new activities, but the fresh air will also help them to unwind and sleep well at night. Days by the seaside are particularly good as they are not only fun, the sea air is extremely therapeutic and enhances feelings of well being.

3.     Plan and create a new routine

Just because you don’t have the rigorous timelines of a typical school day doesn’t mean you can’t establish a “School Holiday” routine for you and the children – albeit a bit more relaxed. Planning the activities and structure of the day with input from the children will help them to feel empowered and encourage collaboration.  For some children, knowing what’s coming next helps them feel safe including retaining a bedtime routine.

4.     Boundaries and Praise

It’s all too easy to take a laid back, no rules approach during the summer holidays, however, children still need both boundaries and praise to feel safe and secure whatever the circumstances. You might want to get input from your children, age-dependent, to help set some of those boundaries (e.g. how many ice creams a week) so it’s all clear up front.  And then, of course, be prepared for those boundaries to be pushed, your buttons to be pressed and for emotions to run high when you say ‘no’ but know that your firmness now will pay off in the future.

5.     Look after yourself

Your own well being is more important than ever when you are out of your normal routine.  Your physical and mental health will have a direct impact on your children and when you are spending so much time together, it’s important that you are feeling good.

Try to build in some ‘me’ time whether it means getting up earlier than normal to do some meditation, in particular, the Twin Hearts Meditation, which is backed by scientific study and has been found to rapidly reduce stress and anxiety, or by planning in time to exercise. Running, dancing, a yoga class or some other activity you enjoy doing, will help revitalise your system, you’ll be less fatigued and have more energy to keep up with the children.

Above all else the summer holidays offer a positive and unique opportunity to reconnect with our children after a busy school year, treasure this time with them.

A Mother’s reflection on Wellbeing for Children

According to Mental Health England, one in ten young people experiences a mental health issue at any one time. Enabling them to take care of their physical and mental wellbeing is of utmost importance as it has a direct impact on their future.  

Even in the absence of any trauma experienced in childhood, navigating the natural emotional ups and downs of hormonal changes, family dynamics, working out where they fit in and now the pressures of social media can be enough to trigger one of many mental health issues.  

Reflecting back on my own childhood, which was not without emotional turbulence, there’s no doubt that children nowadays are facing more pressures than ever and statistics seem to back up my own observations. It, therefore, feels paramount that we arm our children with a full tool kit of techniques they can employ to help build resilience to whatever life throws at them.

When I first discovered Pranic Healing and the techniques I could learn, I had no idea of the value it would bring to my whole family, particularly my children.  

This has played out in two distinct ways.

  1.     Helping myself has had direct positive benefits on those around me:

How many times have your children ‘played up’ when you’ve been in a bad mood?  Children are highly sensitive to energy and it’s certainly no coincidence that when you’re not feeling so good, your child’s behaviour may start to deteriorate.  As I started to learn more and more about energy, I see this more clearly than ever.

  1.     Being able to apply the techniques I’ve learnt on my children:

My eldest son has been open and receptive to me applying Pranic Healing on him since the day I started learning, at which point he was three years old.  Even now, five years later, he will ask for healing if he’s under the weather. Helping with physical pain has been wonderful but even more powerful has been the psychotherapy techniques that I’ve seen help him through periods of change.

The benefits I’ve witnessed to young people go beyond my own family and those young people I’ve treated one-to-one. Many Pranic therapists have been running relaxation and wellbeing sessions in schools and the community across the UK and Ireland.  

The sessions aim to give children some valuable ‘me’ time, enable them to deal with challenging emotions and help them overcome commonly occurring stress and anxiety.  The testimonials from the children, parents and teachers speak volumes about the power of what these simple and easy to implement techniques can do. At the heart of it all is the ability to become aware of oneself.

Helping young people to build self-awareness and equipping them with tools to help deal with the emotions and experiences that come with growing up is vital to enable them to take control of their own physical and mental wellbeing.
