Hey Mom and Dad!
If you have children, chances are you will run into bedtime issues, such as the fear of bad dreams, the dark, monsters, or the report of an overall uneasy feeling in your child’s room. Whether there is logical reason for concern or not, the fact is that our child feels uncomfortable. Saying “there is no such thing as monsters”, or telling them “there is no reason to be afraid of the dark” was not the best way for me to acknowledge my children’s emotions, and definitely never helped them feel more comfortable during times of emotional distress. You see, fear comes from the right side of the brain. Telling a child to use the left side of their brain and be rational about fear, just isn’t realistic based on how children’s minds function. Instead, I have found that by acknowledging their feelings and emotional discomfort, pared with a holistic “ghost busters-like” tool kit is not only a way to nurture them, but also empower them! 🙂
Here is a simple and natural recipe for their own “Boo Be Gone Spray”!
*4 oz. Distilled Water
*4 Drops Clary Sage Essential Oil
*3 Drops Lemon Grass Essential Oil
*3 Drops Purify Essential Oil Blend
*Mix this together in a blue or amber glass mister bottle. *If you have very small children, be sure to wrap this bottle with bubble wrap to prevent the bottle from breaking, should it be accidentally drooped into the floor.
How to Use:
Have your child spray around his or her room, under the bed, in the hall, or anywhere where they may feel afraid. You can tell them them that whenever they spray this spray all of the scary boos turn into tiny fluffy pink bunnies and they joyfully hope back into the woods with the rest of the forest animals (or a similar pleasant visualization). This helps them turn the scary things in their mind into something they feel comfortable with, and even excited about! This will not only shift their thoughts to more positive ones, but it will also improve their mood and the energy of their space. Uplifted moods naturally produce better vibes. Sensitive children are great at picking up these subtle energies within their environments. Why not do our best to help them feel good! 🙂
Now, continuing on, lets go over the healing crystals that I have listed in this kit! 🙂
Black tourmaline also does a great job for adding energetic protection to a space. It helps block out all types of negative energy, and also helps ground your child’s assess or nervous energy, when it is time for them to rest. Green Calcite is an incredibly gentle healing crystal to have around. It has a calm energy that helps to soothe the mind, calm overactive thoughts, worry, and helps the body settle into a very relaxed and peaceful state, promoting balance and emotional well being. I like to refer to this stone as my “spa” stone. 🙂
How to Use:
Keep these stones near your child’s bed. Green calcite will work best under their pillow, in their pillow case, or under the mattress near the top of the bed. The black tourmaline will serve them best at the foot of the bed, or under the mattress below their feet. This layout will create the best energetic flow for relaxation and optimal sleep.
