Free your conscious and subconscious mind, Unconsciousness and kids
A UN report tells us that one million animal and plants species are to be extinct during the next few decades, more than the number of living beings extinct through thousands of years of evolution. What do you think of that?!!
After we incarnate on this little planet, we take decades of schooling to develop fairly low level memory of the intrinsic matter, and we are left guessing properties of the primordial / spiritual matter.
Our parents’ circumstances, family history, relationships with the friends or enemies, our priests, teachers, journalists, contribute to our conscious and subconscious leanings. Yet, whether we like it or not, the strongest physical mechanisms within our emotional or a mental body is the hormonal or chemical input our brain receives, as part of our survival instincts.
The ancient Greeks portrayed Unconscious within their Mythology
A snake killing the children of Laocoön
or as a myth of Icarus that dies burnt for flying too close to the Sun, In Greek mythology, Icarus, καρος, is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus, living in Crete, the creator of the Labyrinth. Icarus and his father attempt to escape from Crete using wings constructed from feathers and wax. Icarus’ father warns his son of the complexity of the endeavor, yet Icarus fly too close to the sun, melting the wax, falls and drowns.
Teenagers and Collective Unconsciousness
The cruelty of the renewal that see no other but It’s-small-self of teenagers is symbolically represented by the pelican parent feeding the children with own blood. Our teenagers have a strong response built in their DNAs of miss-trust, challenging the family’s habits, standards, norms. As a teenager, my 11 year old boy, mistrusted my interpretation of Everything, and with a reason, for the truth is tremendously multi-layered.
Molding Sub Conscious Mind within Ancient Indian Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Reading his wisdom sutra that “the mind states are five and are subject to pleasure and pain” we came to conclusion that these reflect as 4 (four) elements as:
Voices of Earth, security based instincts related to food, death, injury
Voices of Sex, based on longing and fulfilled longing
Voices of Action based on the Karmic group, profession, winning or losing, short-term focus
Heart based loving vs. hating; giving vs. taking
One-pointedness towards Goodness
The power of the Soul can be intuitively or consciously observed through the daily life. However one has to give full respect towards the element Earth that runs through us as the hormonal and chemical balance of a specific age-group, or a specific disease, that physically changes our brains. Within the basic crude our water intake affects waves of “water” layers within us; our breathing affects the gusts of “air” currents or winds, solidifying further the products of “earth” or where we are within the food chain, affects our physic, the flames of “fire” are the life force we get from Sun rays. Activities such as music, painting, sports, reading, all fall under the Patanjali’s “esoteric meditation and study”, two of three spiritual growth methods of liberation from the negative Mind Chitta, the third one being Service. The self-indulgent behavior patterns, obsession with food, mobiles, gossiping or hate, all waste our life-force. Activities such as meditation use Willpower to detach from a thought-form, or chose a more inspiring mind-chitta.
Pulsation, vibration, rhythm exists everywhere as Akasha / Sound / Waves and we hope to reach the vibration of wisdom embedded Logic or Love Enlightened Intelligence transcending our microcosmic limitations. The kids resonance is supreme, they tune into subconscious “security” fears of humanity, “food” indulgence, “society” acceptance, all important “survival”
LOVE RHYTHM AND PRIORITIES
“The need for imagination, a sense of truth and a feeling of responsibility – these are the three forces which are the very nerve of education.” Rudolf Steiner
Within the Artof4Elements Conscious Parenting Course Methodology, at all times, we are very attentive and careful about the child’s evolving world of senses that needs stability, routine, and structure, that needs constant attention and care, world of emotions that needs love, freedom and creativity and world of thoughts that needs Discrimination as an Ability to chose Right Thinking, Emotions, Behavior.
Soul stands at the center of the children growth and development, as an Essence, an Observer, Consciousness coming forth to experience the magic of Life. Be tentative to the Soul’s whispers.
Conscious Parenting by Nataša Pantović quote A child has a deep longing to discover that the world is based on Truth
A child has a deep longing to discover that the world is based on truth. Respect that longing. In our attempt to help children grow into inspired adults, we wish them to carry the youthfulness of their souls, and the wonders of childhood into their old age.
Listen to Your Child
Conscious Parenting Quote by Nataša Pantović A child is a soul unit consciousness
A child is a Soul, a unit Consciousness materialized on Earth to learn, fulfill its purpose and contribute within the matrix of society. Our parents and grandparents fought for ‘freedom’, ‘expression of thoughts’, ‘equality’, and we now have a task to fight for the supremacy of Love over Control within all areas of life. An ocean of human consciousness and sub-consciousness is vast and dynamic. It beautifully changes with every enlightened human being that walks the planet, with every enlightened couple that lives love and with every enlightened parent that can transfer the wisdom to his or her little ones.
Stepping into the foot-steps of our ancestors, dreaming a better world we walk our path fighting for the mental, emotional and spiritual freedom, and equality.
Conscious Parenting by Nataša Pantović quote each Child has a different growth rate
Every child is an individual with a different growth rate and a potential that is varied and vast.
Respecting the needs of our little ones from a very early age, listening to their unique voices, hearing their wants will assure them that no matter how tiny they are somebody will kneel down to Listen.
Respecting the potential that is hidden within each child, we respect their potential to become Kings of their Trade, or Saviors of the World to come.
Kahlil Gibran on Children
‘And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, ‘Speak to us of Children.’ And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.’
RHYTHM IS ONE OF THREE PILLARS OF CONSCIOUS PARENTING
RHYTHM IS BASIS OF ALL
Conscious Parenting by Nataša Pantović quote about Rythm Structure Routine
If we do not respect our Earth, the world of emotions and mental development will suffer. We all need rhythm in our food consumption, in our sleep patterns, in our cleanliness and our exercise regime. This routine does not come naturally and it is learned and exercised from very young age.
The Rhythm is carried and supported by our ability to:
