Do as I Do not Do as I Say

Children are far more intelligent than they are given credit for. For many adults in previous generations, it was a common concept to think of children as vessels to be filled with knowledge; fit to a mould, a system, follow the directives and regurgitate information and do as they were told. Sure this sounds ideal from a teacher and parental perspective, to have children who comply with and do as they are asked. However, this is not fitting in with the need to understand child’s behaviour or to meet their needs.

Let’s take this idea and apply it to the concept of thinking as a child is an individual, each with their own needs. In this day and age, there is really no limit to the way that a child has been able to express himself or herself. I think this also comes with the decrease in the use of authoratative, physical punishment that was phased ou in many places around the world.

Now we are brought to the context of teachers and parents facing the need for new ways of raising, communicating and dealing with children. A much more positive direction towards liberating children from using fear based tactics to rule over them.

Today we are facing the question of children “not having enough discipline“. Well it is not about being able to control them, for we are, in truth, not here to control anyone else except for ourselves and the ways that we respond to the different things in our lives. So for the sake of answering the statement of not having enough discipline, it is true – we are moving away from the model of needing discipline to control children and young people today. What about this defiant kind of attitude and behaviour that is sweeping across classrooms, homes and society? How about social models that fit their needs based on understanding?

Instead, rather than the need to focus on discipline, how about we be the role models who set the examples of what is expected for children? For example, in a society that condemns violence in the home, school and society, how can we set rules for them when we condone such things in video games, films and children’s toys? Or how can there be rules for illicit drugs when there are other things just as addicitive considered the norm? How do we overcome these kinds of behaviours?

We would like you to consider this today, as some food for thought as to what you have the potential to model to yourself and the children around you. Think about the ways that you set an example and you are a teacher by living and leading by these principles that guide your life.

As for my Indigo Brothers and Sisters, we would like to finish by saying – “Make your own living experience an example to live by and to learn and grow from. Let a personalised experience that you apply to your life be what you set your life to and form your own understanding to get the most out of it. You are your own individual self who is here to shine in your own personal and unique way. You are beautiful, blessed and full of potential.”

 

Blessings and love,

The Power of the Word

Recently, we were asked why terms such as Indigo Children and Crystal Children were used for children exhibiting varied traits in areas such as personality, physicality and physiology, and part of the reason for this is to empower and educate. From my experiences, growing up and now at school with a range of different children, a medical diagnostic label such as ADHD and Autism has implications that something is wrong or that thlabel-34247_640e person is broken.

It is looking for symptoms and problems rather than looking for solutions. Remember that we become what we say we are. So if a child with one of these diagnosed labels finds out that this label is given to them and they are seen as problematic, then that’s what they’ll think is true about them. It may lead them to think that they aren’t worthy of fitting in or that they aren’t ‘normal’ like those without labels.

Wouldn’t it be far more empowering to highlight the strengths of these children through emphasising their gifts and unique ways of exploring the world? Whilst all these children have been coming to the Earth in higher numbers, some medical and scientific communities are looking straight past the differences as things to celebrate and welcome, rather, looking at them as things to fix. We are who we are and we are what we are and there’s nothing wrong or broken about us.

What we are being faced with is not surges of increasing epidemics of things like ADHD, Autism and the like, but rather we are facing awakenings in human evolution. Changing consciousness, communication, emotional understanding, compassion, integrity, unconditional love and remembering love as that is what we are and who we are.

My Indigo Brothers and Sisters, you are perfect just the way you are. We celebrate your presence here. We honour you. We bless you and we say, Namaste.  

Love from Nathan and Friends.

Indigo Children: Visionary Leaders

leadership-153250_640One thing that I have noticed about many Indigo Children is that they are strong and passionate people who make dedicated and focused leaders. The main reason being, that Indigo Children, with their strong strive for the truth and integrity behind their own expressions and what they stand for, are able to channel their creativity in such spontaneous ways. The creativity of an Indigo Child goes beyond measure. This is evident when you take into account the fact that these children begin one project and another and then another. Indigo Children act from their feelings, as they are very right-brained oriented, and this surge of creative design and implemented action is just what any kind of group or organisation of like minds needs to lead them.

Indigo Children, with their high sense of spontaneouty and creative ideas have the potential to provide such a deep level of inspiration that engages the true meaning behind what they are so passionate about. Whilst they might not always get the job done on time, it’s the abilities that they have in generating ideas and beginning them which makes them good leaders. They’re the responsible driving force behind all those exciting new ideas of meaningful organisations. As there needs to be balance in any group or organisation, it can be up to others to follow up on the projects that have begun, whilst new ideas are always springing to life from the Indigo leaders.

My friends, this is just one of the ways that the creative and spontaneous Indigo fire can be channeled to support a purpose. Let the ideas flow out naturally without taking away from the channel itself, and let it come about naturally. As the Indigo Children tend to receive a high amount of information from being Claircognisiant, meaning they have a deep connection to the collective unconscious, this also means that they may not necessarily be able to control what information flows through or when. Keeping this in mind, supportive people can drive and further develop these ideas, whilst the creative indigo continues to supply the ideas rapidly.

From examples I have seen in my experiences growing up as and working with these children, is evident when it comes to group tasks. Sometimes it feels difficult to get started and stay focused on beginning one task or idea. As an Indigo, it almost feels like there is so much excitement about the ideas coming through, so much so, that sometimes it can feel like the amount of choices is overwhelming! That is why we need to work with others who can support us in nurturing the ideas that come through us. The over-excitedness can mean that we can’t stop and it can mean that we don’t finish creative projects if we are left at the helm of making all the decisions.

GrassrootsLeadershipWorking with Indigo Children promotes and encourages everyone to have their say, because whilst ideas keep on coming through, it takes a lot input in a group to bring out thebest potential of that idea- to nurture the plant and really allow it to grow to its fullest. Indigo Children could be seen as the people who want to level the playing field in the hierarchies. As we reflect upon the concepts of nurtured creativity and guided directions for expansion, it brings about a sense of empowered responsibility – to realise and understand that we are not actually as incompetent as we were told in the past, for ‘not finishing work’ or for ‘starting too many things at once’ or being ‘unsettled’.

To understand how our creativity works unlocks a whole new way to understand what it means to be creative and what it means to be supported.


My Indigo Brothers and Sisters, today is a day to acknowledge the flow of great ideas that come to you. To recognise that your ideas are shared ideas in this great ocean of creativity in union with Spirit. Recognise your creativity as an extension of the Creator within you. Each one of you has a unique way to express your creativity and no one is here to tell you otherwise. Allow yourselves to fully shine and reach for the stars.

Blessings and love,
Nathan and Friends

Indigo Children, Crystal Children and Agriculture

As we have already discussed in previous posts on Diary Indigo, sunlight, fresh air, nature, physical activity and community are essential things that Indigo and Crystal Children innately know that they need in their lives. They’ll do what they can to get these things and when they’re in need of them, look out, because you’ll be the first to know about it. First comes the fidgeting, then comes the boredom, the standing up and moving around the classroom. This then leads to the calling out in the classroom, climbing chairs, tables, throwing things, not paying attention, not caring about their classwork, then walking out the door.

These are just some examples of behaviours that children can demonstrate. Remember, every behaviour is a result of communicating a need which hasn’t been met. Let’s face it, we’re not here to please everybody, but in saying this, we also need to consider what others’ needs are and how we can work together to achieve the best potential for each and all.

Agriculture being taught in schools is something that we have been pondering about lately, for it seems to have so many positive benefits for Indigo and Crystal Children and it seems like they naturally gravitate towards it. As a schoimagesol subject, Agriculture teaches children about the importance of various practices, which builds links between their desire to seek truth and reasoning behind things and their physical efforts. Agriculture goes beyond the books because it teaches students the qualities of patience, persistence and the feeling of reaping what is sown.

For Indigo Children who have much energy to expend and are not the kind of children to sit still, they are in their element being able to move physically. The time spent outdoors equals to exposure to the sunlight, which equals to increases in Serotonin. Serotonin levels are linked to relaxed states of minds, balanced hormones and overall lower levels of stress. Overactive minds sure could use a lot more of it! Higher levels of Serotonin also translate into higher levels of rest, hence creating calmer minds and calmer bodies.

For learners who learn visually, there is much to see that is going on in the world and Agriculture is something that assists them in cultivating this vision. Whatever is planted and nurtured becomes a part of a creative process far greater than what was originally conceived in thought. Agriculture reflects on a level of self-empowerment and responsibilty, driving children to manage their own resources and be in control of what they produce. It reflects on the old ways and days, when we used to connect to nature so easily and freely. Sure there are modern conveniences in today’s world, but how many of us can say that we are able to connect to all these positive benefits that come about from something like studying, practising and applying principles of Agriculture, through other means?

9191524683_13b96aa2f3_zIn witnessing the way that children engage with their environment, we see Agriculture as something that is so vital for today’s developing children. Not just for the sake of growing their own food and looking after other animals, but also for the sense community that it brings about. Indigos in their element being leaders, being nurturers, planters and creators whilst Crystal Children are able to connect with nature and share their love with the plants and animals. Between both groups of children, they are able to develop positive social interactions through working together and they can feel like they are contributing in worthy and significant ways. It makes them feel valued – something which is quite often overlooked, because the labels that they are originally given, have them perceive themselves as ‘broken’ or ‘incapable’.

Today I was fortunate to spend the whole day with some Agriculture students and to see what an inspiring teacher they have to lead them, to facilitate a love of learning and a love of nature. It is wonderful to see this passion in a teacher, transmitted to their students. I truly believe that in order to be great teachers, we honestly need to show to our students that we are enthusiastic about what we are teaching. Let’s also remember that Indigo and Crystal Children are sensitive to our thoughts and emotions, so let’s face it, they’ll know when you’re enjoying what you’re teaching and you’ll know that they’ll enjoy what they’ll be learning about too.

My Indigo and Crystal Brothers and Sisters, each of you impacts the world in far more significant ways than you realise. You all shine such beautiful light into the world and spread it in all such unique ways. Unite together, share a common purpose and share the love.

Indigo Children, Defiance and the Classroom: “Why do we have to do this at School?” “I’m Bored” “I’m Outta Here”

Do really we have to do this Miss?” I asked.
I BEG YOUR PARDON?” said the teacher.
I feel this isn’t important because I won’t need to know it when I grow up”.
“HOW DARE YOU! STAND UP AND GO OUTSIDE!”

I can clearly remember saying this scene clearly in mind as if it were last week. I can remember getting reprimanded for speaking my mind and speaking my truth. I knew that I wasn’t interested in what i was learning in my Grade 3 Religion lesson. I was being honest and I was punished. “What relevance did this have in my life and future?” I wondered. I could feel and see that it didn’t. I knew. However I still didn’t get my answer and I am pretty sure it’s still a common thing going on in classrooms and schools today. I am grateful that as a visiting teacher, we are given a bit more freedom with what we can do during the day at school.

First things first, I know that kids can naturally get bored and seek out more engaging things. It happens all the time. Even if they don’t say it they might act out or refuse to do anything. Today I’d like to talk about this from an Indigo perspective.

In older generations of schooling, sure we may have gotten bored, however there may have been a higher tendency to reserve or stuff down feelings in fear of getting reprimanded or punished verbally or physically and usually the response to “do we really have to this Miss or Sir?” would be “yes it’s in the curriculum and you have to do it because you have to.” Naturally kids would say “Okay”, and continue with what they were doing.
Things were a bit different back then in terms of the school system, disciplining children and the ways that children were taught.

Reflecting upon these and comparing this with the  more diverse needs of students and teachers these days responding to a simple, honest question of a young person in a classroom withindex “because you have to” simply isn’t going to cut it. Remember that Indigos can detect truth in the words, feelings and responses of those around them, themselves included. They are also quite intuitive so they’ll have an inborn sensitivity and greater level of extra-sensory perception. So what if they really are seeing in their futures that they won’t need to know what they’re being taught in school?

So if you think about a teacher who simply tells them “because they have to“, do you really think an Indigo Child is going to believe them? How about the Indigo can sense that he or she won’t be needing to recall any of this knowledge in their future? What if these children can sense in the teachers, that they too know that this knowledge is irrelevant or not important in the future? Where does that leave the teacher and the student?

Well for the Indigo who acts upon their feelings, then they’re not going to pay attention or they’re not going to be very interested in what’s going on. If there’s no relevance in their lives then perhaps they may even feel compelled to leave the learning environment, and in older kids, they may skip classes or school, play up in the classroom or tune into their own world.

It’s not to say that school education is insignificant to these children, moreso, they are seeking answers and we need to be prepared to answer them or to ask them more questions to guide them along their own inquiry of life. Perhaps as a teacher you could focus on what skills and values they are actually learning and link this into their everyday life experience. Integrate learning into contexts which are significant to them. Think carefully about what you say to them, because if you’re coming from a place that is uncertain, then how can they trust you and what you’ve got to offer?

Also keep in mind that learning new skills offers them the opportunity to open up and access neural pathways. Expanding their awareness and their skill sets rather than simply filling them with facts and figures. Explore different ways of teaching. There are many different styles to teach, not simply just chalk and talk, textbooks and reading, writing and arithmetic.

Another thing to remember is that discipline in some cases only reinforces a child’s behaviour, ironically, making them aware that they can get out of doing something by not doing it in the first place and thus being removed. It also has implications of coming from a fear based perspective (eg. do something this way or else this outcome will happen to you), so how about being a teacher by living and leading by example? If you want the children to be interested in what you’ve got to teach, make sure you’re interested in it too. Make sure you make it engaging and inclusive for everyone!

Be creative in your teaching and allow your students to be the same. Let them genuinely express themselves and their ideas and experiences of education. I understand the work of a teacher and the fact that they need to meet the standards of syllabus documents and such and I have much respect for the work that you do. It’s time to see Indigo Children and or ADHD children as a generation of emerging and developing cognition. Think outside the box and remember that just because you are a teacher, that doesn’t mean that you are no longer a student. The kids in your classroom are your teachers as you are theirs. Be the one who empowers them to seek answers and ask questions in their learning and be the one who encourages them to explore through connecting with them and what they hold in their hearts.

Sometimes school is unable to cater for some people whose interests are aligned elsewhere. That’s absolutely fine and just because school isn’t your thing, that doesn’t make you a failure of the system or a failure of life. I know many Indigos who felt alien in the school system and since leaving formal schooling they’ve excelled in their passions and are giving life all they’ve got. They’re the ones making a difference, showing the younger ones that when you find what your heart calls for you can achieve anything.

 

Cheeky Indigo Children

As we have already established, the Indigo Child is one who is quite intuitive, sensitive to the degree that they can innately detect and discern between truth and dishonesty. They are known as the ones who are very feeling based, to the degree that they feel out what they want to be doing, and can go from place to place, starting task upon task to their heart’s content. From my own childhood and now as an educator, whilst I have noticed that Indigos are the kinds of children that teachers, parents and educators do not always understand, a label is given to them, making them feel like there is something wrong with them. Like ADHD is some kind of defect, when in fact it is a different form of cognition, one which actually has its similarities to those who are ‘gifted and talented’.

In saying this, as labels are given to Indigo Children, they begin to feel like something is wrong and they internalise these labels. Resulting from this is in many cases, a lower sense of self-esteem. These labels may or may not change their understanding of their own innate spiritual gifts, and so they while many of them still have the abilities of intuition, sensitivity, multi-tasking, creativity and inner truth detection, they might not always be channeled into the most positive of ways.

With many Indigo Children who have been displaced in the home and school classroom, we get children who are feeling very vulnerable and sensitive about the things that they have been labelled, and thus need a way for them to feel better about themselves or to keep themselves amused in the boredom of education systems that they engaged by. Some cases of this can look like picking on other children at school or home, or feeling like picking on a different person every week! Others may show this vulnerability and need by lashing out at other teachers and adults. Others take it out on society. The passion builds, the anger builds, and when an Indigo is fired up, they’ll show it seen and unseen ways that are usually quite obvious.

Imagine having inner truth detection abilties and using that as a bully. You’d know what makes others tick and you would feed off it. You would know what truly gets to them and you would continue to do it. Even if the recipient of bullying told the teacher and the teacher told them to ‘just ignore it‘, it would be something that would take a great deal of strength and resilience to overcome. So we need to focus our attention on the bully, cooperate with members of their family and school network and re-educate them in the process. giphy

All those people pointing fingers at you, saying that something is wrong, well this is the only kind of behaviour that you know, and now it’s time for you to carry out this behaviour unto others. What are the effects of this cycle? If we are not learning to accept ourselves and internalise the detrimental impacts of labelling and misdiagnosis, where is our society heading? Meet the Indigo Bully, a creation of this cycle of being ‘bullied’ themselves.

If you are or were one of these children (I know I was when I was younger!) or if you are a parent or an educator, we really really need you to unconditionally love and accept yourselves again and do the same unto others. Bullies create bullies, and it is common for us to fear or put down what we don’t understand ourselves. Although the past is done and dusted, it’s time to pick up the pieces, forgive those who crossed our paths and ‘wronged’ us to some extent. It’s not about holding onto the anger, but being inspired by it, to make a difference and to transform your world and well-being.

Take a forgiveness inventory. Take a large sheet of paper and write down the names of all the people in your life that you need to forgive. It could be small things, it could be large things. Imagine as you write these names on this paper down, that they are standing in front of you and you say (their name), I forgive you, I release you and I am free and you are free.” Imagine pink light wrapping around you both and feel how good it feels to let them go.

It is my prayer that each of you Indigos out there awaken. See beyond the labels, see yourselves as perfectly whole and complete. You are enough just the way you are. You were taught in ways that reflected the ways that others were taught. We need you now to live and lead by example and begin to see the world as you do and no one else. Reclaim your power. Reclaim your truth. You are beautiful.

Taming the Indigo Fire

“A Calling to Indigos” –

Indigos, it is time for you to remember who you are and what you are. Find a creative way to express yourself. Allow yourself to release your emotions, especially your anger, in ways that are beneficial to you but are unharmful to those around you. The world is not out to get you! Let us forgive those who did not understand you, for they were only operating at the highest level of consciousness available to them at the time. Let’s forgive the world, and send love into the world. You are here to make a difference and to make that difference you need to come from a place of love. Look into your heart and learn to feel again! Trust your feelings, trust yourself!

You have your own inner power that makes you strong. You can do this. You can do this. You can do this. You are very loved and supported. Your ability to take on multiple tasks at once and be successful in all of them is a blessing. You trust your feelings and you follow them as necessary. You speak your truths honestly and as you do so, you live a life that is more authentic to you. You are a great leader who is able to take on great responsibilities. Your impact makes such a difference in the world.

Live your life according to your story that you are writing. Your experience is yours alone. You are here to pave the way for your children and your grandchildren and the generations to come!

Love from Nathan and Friends

 

Indigo Children have been born in this world for many generations, with a great influx of them from the 1950s onwards. Jesus was an Indigo, as was Joan of Arc, Albert Einstein, and maybe even you, the reader. Indigo Children have an innate truth detector – they know when something is not right and they feel it in every part of their body. They have a drive so great that they can achieve almost anything they set their minds on, however they could also be the ones who are working on many different things at once. Multiple projects and interests are derived from feeling based ways of making choices in life, which sadly gets misunderstood as a form of hyperactivity). They have a high degree of sensitivity and because of that, they can detect truth and honesty and are not afraid to go about in expressing it, which can also be misunderstood as hyperactivity. From a young age, they know that they have been for a reason, a purpose, and they can instinctively feel that they are ‘different’ from the current systems and practices in place. Indigo Children have a strong fire inside of them. It is this fire that makes them very passionate about what they do and what they stand for. On the positive side, it can be what pushes them to achieve so much, however on the flipside, it can be what fuels an intense temperament otherwise.

In my schooling days, the increase of Indigo Children became more apparent when there was an increase in the number of children with ADD (Attention Defecit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Defecit Hyperactive Disorder). Many of these children were and are still known as the naughty children who were disruptive and unable to sit still. They called out and loved attention. Many of these children were and still are being medicated, thus creating a sedative-like effect on them, which in turn limited them from their natural gifts. With a misunderstanding like that, it is easy to understand why many Indigos today feel angry with the world that they grew up in. They were labelled and thus identified with the labels. therefore having impacts on their self-esteem and identity, allowing these labels to manifest in their lives and control them. With anger fuelling their lives, many displaced Indigos find themselves attracting violence and anti-social behaviour into their lives and in worst case scenarios, take it out on other people when all else fails.

When doing my research before writing this blog to see if there were other online blogs focused around Indigo children, many of the things that I had found, surely enough were from Indigo Children. However, perhaps they had not learn to tame their fire, for the content was very negative, unhopeful, and they were lost. This post is not intended to point fingers at anyone, for everyone has my compassion and my love.

It really makes a difference when one who feels different or displaced can understand and connect with themselves and others, realising that they are not all that isolated or alone at all! If you are an Indigo or you know of one who is feeling displaced, turning to anti-social behaviour to cope, I would encourage them to connect with like minds, actually even just learn more about Indigo Children themselves. Learn about who you are, what you are, and where you are. You are here for a very special reason.

There is hope for the planet. Many who are just like you are waking up again. Whether you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s, or 50s, you know you’ve been different all of your life and waiting to connect with others just like you. They are out there! As consciousness rises and humanity evolves, it is true to say that we are in fact mutating to an extent of evolution. Higher sensitivity, increased awareness, higher levels of consciousness, enhanced levels of manifestation and advanced levels of spiritual and psychic abilities. It’s all happening and it’s all very real! Take note of the children and the young ones who are achieving such great things today. Childhood and teenage inventors, solutions to aid the environment, generate new forms of electricity and the like. Schools for the gifted and children’s and parents’ groups!

Reach out, connect, and let your passionate fire serve you in the world as you serve it. The Earth needs you!

 

 

“Do you see what I see?”

“Oh look at those clear squiggly lines! Do you see them too?”
“Don’t be silly. Stop talking nonsense!”

“Wow what pretty colours and lights! Look over there!”
“Oh you’re just making it up! I can’t see anything”

photo 1The italics reflect on my reactions to seeing energy and orbs when I was a young child. The bold writing reflects on the responses to family, friends and teachers who saw the world differently to me. Reflecting upon this, I had a level of awarness that was not understood by myself or others. To notice these things on an everyday level and in a very natural way prompted me to say such things without really thinking or without realising that those around me had forgotten about what was once an inborn, innate, natural gift.

I’m sure that there are many of you reading that can relate to this. The frustration of stating what we perceive as so obvious and natural, yet so misunderstood by many of those around us. Patience Dear One, patience! Our story is ours just as others belong to others. Nobody is right or wrong here, we are all just operating from our highest level of current understanding. Both sides need to learn to respect multiple perspectives and ways of perceiving life.

As I shyed away from engaging with the Spirit world in my teenage years, it wasn’t until I myself was a school teacher that this came back to me. I noticed what some of the children in my classrooms were talking about. I read their stories during story writing time about imaginary friends, coloured lights and angels visiting their rooms at night. It made me think about my own childhood and the easily dismissed notion and disregard for ‘imagination’ as if it were a bad thing with no relevance in a logically functioning world. I explored and I made the journey to rediscovery and reconnection. I lent an ear to these children who felt encouraged to share more and talk about these things with me. It taught mphoto 2e many great lessons about our spiritual nature and actually how intuitive and aware we are as children. To return to a childlike level of innocence and purity is to reconnect with where we once came.

Something that I am passionate about passing on to other adults, parents and teachers of children is to listen. Listen to what children have to say. Just because as an adult you have been here longer on this Earth than the young ones before you, that does not mean that you automatically know more or that you are always right. Just because your experience of life is different to the way that another individual, another child, experiences life, that does not mean that theirs is invalid or wrong. We all have a voice and we all have a right to share our story in this journey through life.

The idea is not to judge one another based on their experience of life but rather to see to it with open arms, open heart and open mind. Let us all respect one another as individuals without seeing the need to fit us all into one mould, one life experience orone path. Above and beyond, we are all here to shine in our own unique ways.

Blessings and love,
Nathan and Friends

 

 

“Why don’t you just turn it off?” “Why don’t you just try and be normal?”

Experiencing life as a spiritual being is not something that you can turn on or off. Once you’ve crossed the river, there’s no turning back. It’s like discovering that you are alive in another way. When you’re aware that you are alive, that you have a soul, there is no possible way that could ignore your own life whilst still being here.

For me, growing up as an intuitive and sensitive child, it was like being naturally aware and switched on to my own thoughts and feelings quite regularly. I knew what others were feeling and thinking. I saw through people who were not honest. I knew when I was being lied to. I knew when something wasn’t right. I connected with people who I could see as my friends and I could trust instantly rather than connecting with anyone and figuring it out later.

I came from a Catholic background and I was shy about sharing my spiritual gifts like I was some kind of naughty alien. (In retrospect, Hiding from what was natural to me was what actually made me the alien!) We never, ever spoke about these things at home or school. I felt confused and powerless because I was taught one thing in school but I was experiencing things differently and didn’t have anyone to talk to. Growing up through my teenage years meant that it was important to be ‘normal’, so I hid from my spiritual gifts. I covered my ears and eyes. I blocked my heart and I ignored messages from Spirit.

Oh it made the road so much more bumpier! So many “should haves” and “would haves” because I had a hunch about something or someone and didn’t follow through with it.

Maybe it was just a lucky guess“, I would say to myself afterwards. That was my comfort phrase. These ‘lucky guesses’ were the same kinds of things that forewarned me about two consecutive knee injuries that I had. I ignored them and it set me back on the path to remembering, strengthening and nurturing whatever this feeling or skill was. I didn’t know what to call it because when I was a child, I didn’t even know there was a name for it, because I was just being normal in my soul’s own eyes, heart and mind.

And so began my journey to reconnect with my Spirituality when I was 20 years old.

*

Connection to Spirit and communicating with Angels and Spirit Guides through feeling, sight, sound and thought is perfectly normal and natural. With whatever we try to hide from ourselves or others, we end up expending a lot more energy and causing more stress to ourselves and those around us. Be authentic in expressing yourself and you’ll attract experiences that are relevant and authentic to you. This might not always mean the easiest path but it is the most rewarding, fulfiling and nourishing one at that.

To be normal is to be natural and comfortable with yourself before considering what level of comfort others have with you. Be honest with yourself and appreciate yourself for all that you are and all that you have. Imagine what could be achieved if everyone knew what their soul’s desires were? This takes me to where I am on my journey now and my passion and intention to empower, educate and enlighten children and their parents and teachers on the magic that will always be a part of their lives. We will explore this in further detail as this blog progresses 🙂

Blessings and love,
Nathan and Friends.
