Hyperactive and ADHD in Young Children: Some Alternative Solutions1
Children are blessed with an abundance of amazing energy that seems foreign to some parents, especially as the average age of parents rise. Parents are starting their families much later in their lives. As parents age their energy levels decrease which makes keeping up with their child more difficult. Understandably many frustrated parents are running to their doctor’s office looking for a diagnosis that will explain what is “wrong” with their child. The resulting quick solution is often to medicate the child to calm him or her down. Statics, Oct 30, 2015 confirm the rise in Childhood ADHD and medication use (http://www.educationworld.com/a_issues/issues148a.shtml). There is a 500% increase in usage of these drugs for children with ADHD since 1991.
My intention in writing this article is to share information. I have been working with energy in one form or another since the mid 1990’s. I have made many observations over the years and I would like to share some alternative options with you. If you are unsatisfied with your child’s current treatment, you may find this alternative approaches helpful.
What I’ve come to find is that sometimes children’s chakras are out of alignment / out of balance, thus disrupting the child’s homeostasis (the body’s natural balance) which can lead to all types of disorders. Another common thread that I’ve found is that many times children are not “grounded”. Their energy is all over the place.
Kids (and adults) can ground themselves by playing out doors, connecting with nature, through contact with their skin. Here in Southern California, much of the year the kids can be outdoors barefoot in the grass or walking barefoot at the beach. Digging in the dirt and playing with rocks, are other ways of grounding. If being outside barefoot is not an option, one can achieve grounding by playing with crystals.
Specific crystals such as hematite and smoky quartz are just a couple of many, that are well known for their grounding properties. They can be purchased at your local metaphysical shop or online. You’ll want to clear the energy of the crystal prior to giving it to your child (as it has absorbed energy from all that have handled it prior to your purchase) and continue to clear the crystal/s periodically.
In order to align / balance the chakras you will have to seek out someone that is qualified to do that.
