The superpower of the Earth Child is Sixth Sense. This means that they are an intuitive person, who is positive and playful, full of ideas and one who needs physical activity.
Nature of the Earth Child:
Knowing your child’s SolePath helps you uncover their learning style, thinking style, creative process, how they experience time, and their connection to the Tao. All of this contributes to understanding your child at a deep level and helps you to become the best parent you can be, a parent who provides a happy, loving and nurturing environment.
Learning style: kinesthetic and experiential
The Earth Child learns by doing and needs to be hands-on with activities, rather than listening to or watching someone else do it. They need to be active in the learning process. They process information by taking the initiative, making decisions and being accountable. They learn when they try to do it for themselves.
Thinking style: whole thinker
In the process of learning, understanding and gaining knowledge, the thinking style for the Earth Child is whole thinker, rather than linear thinker. Your child is perceptive and can think in multiple directions and is seen as very intelligent.
They can make connections among apparently unrelated concepts and ideas, and they really like open-ended instructions with options for possible outcomes.
The Earth Child’s concepts and ideas are free-flowing and based on forward-looking, original initiation. Your Earth Child, rather than looking at what others have done, uses internal stimuli and insights to create.
Fostering creativity within them includes giving them the independence they need to create what they want and without a definite outcome in mind.
Your Earth Child experiences time all at the same time, with good memory and self-awareness. Their subjective experience of time is that they are not always discerning about which event or memory came first. Sometimes they have little distinction between past and present events. Their time perception is often that “everything that has happened and everything that is happening” is happening now.
For some of the other categories, time is experienced one step at a time, in a logical progression. Their subjective experience of time is that one event follows another in succession and when the event is over, it becomes a memory. Time has an order to it.
The rhythm of the Tao:
The Tao is the natural order of the universe and keeps the world balanced and flowing. Lake energy is the Tao energy that matches Earth Children.
When light and expanding, Lake energy represents positivity and communication and is joy and depth without overflowing.
When dark and collapsed, Lake energy is stagnant.
Your Earth child embodies the natural energy of lake.
