How Can I Help my Child Understand Metaphysics?

Growing up Positively

Growing up Positively

Many people, once they have begun to understand the metaphysical ideal, ask this question. I think it first helps to understand the meaning of metaphysics, and being metaphysical. This can be difficult, because it is often not defined well. If you do a search right now, you will find more than one definition. To the best of my ability, I would define it as a philosophy, where one would seek to know and understand the hows and the whys of the human existence. I think at the core, it is of importance for anyone, whether metaphysically minded, or not, to understand “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

I use this quote often and certainly with all of my clients.

Small children are born, like all of us, with this knowledge. If you have young children under the age of 7, the concept of where we came from is easy for them to grasp. They, unlike adults, remember and welcome talk of all things metaphysical. Never push a child with questions and answers, just speak very matter of fact. When they talk of “imaginary” friends, inquire about them, acknowledge how wonderful it is that a friend has come to enjoy in their day with them. Encourage them to be the human that they intended to be when they came here. It is often far too easy to “keep up with the Joneses and worry that your child is not “like the other kids”. As a parent, you are to offer guidance, but never push against the inner wisdom and knowledge of the age-old spirit that resides in that tiny body. Those little humans are spirits as old as the beginning of time, and they will happily co-exist with you in your joy.

As for older children, the pre-teens, and teens that have not been raised in the metaphysical ways of thinking, you will likely need a bit of a different approach. Some humans are just naturally more in tune with the spirit world in which we came from, and will go back to one day. Others, for their own spiritual reasons, are more disconnected from it. It’s important to lead by example. Speak kindly, and be open to non-judgmental conversations. While all the years of our human experience can have challenges, the teen years can be the most difficult in my opinion. They are a time when we feel we have no control, and we must answer to others for everything. Show your teen, or pre-teen that you acknowledge the unique, loving, wonderful spirit that they are.

No matter the age of your child, express to them what we in the metaphysical world know to be true. The spirit world is not counting your success by the number of years you live, the grades you get in school, or the objects you own, but by the joy that you have in this lifetime. That is it, just the joy. If you have joy, then all good things will come to you.

    Karen you are such a good writer. Reads so professional. I am certain that you are a great example to your children. I have observed that children love to be listened to and have their opinions and thoughts valued by adults. A little child just beams when you really pay attention to what they have to say.
