Class Notes: Centered and Protected
These are notes from week two of Beginner's Kids Class.
Energetic Vocabulary Words:
Centered: To be balanced in your physical space, usually associated with feelings of calmness, strength and clarity. Located in the body just below the rib cage.
Protection: Providing yourself with a boundary between your energy and the rest of the world using imagery arms length around you.
Aura: The energy field around you that is emanating your life force energy. It should be one arm’s length around you in all directions, including above and below you.
We will be discussing being centered and how to protect your energy field from outside influence. Your child will learn about what it means to be centered in your body and know the difference between your energy and someone else’s. We will discuss a special place they can go inside themselves to feel protected and centered. It will be a way for them to visualize their space and clear of any foreign energy.
We will discuss different ways to protect your energies including the idea of a protective color around you in all directions or other substances.
Have your child imagine the center of their energy. It will look like their favorite place to be. They will have drawn a picture of what this looks like, but they can change it up any time they want.
Here are some questions to ask them:
- What does your space look like?
- Is there anyone in there with you? If yes, asked them to clear them out. (they will know how)
There are no rules; their imagination is their strongest gift here. Let them explore and tell you what they discover.
Here are some scenarios where you might have them prepare clean out their center.
The beginning of the day.
- If they are acting more like a friend they have been with than themselves.
- When they are feeling powerless or as if life is unfair.
- When they seem hyper, anxious or fearful.
Other ways to center your energies:
- Deep breathing
- Becoming aware of every body part, one at a time
Let them be playful with this topic and explore it for themselves. Talk with them about how it makes them feel to be centered and what they notice.
Daily energy set up:
Ask your child to ground, center and put up protection for the day. Have them spend a few minutes thinking about their energy in the morning and before bed. Keeping their energy healthy will become habitual just like brushing their teeth. We will learn two more tools by the end of class.
