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.
Language is responsible for clear communication and successful interactions with your Earth Child. Language helps them understand and cope with emotions, and it is the genesis of critical thinking, problem solving and decision making. Language helps your child make sense of their experiences and the world around them.
Your conscious use of specific vocabulary brings about positive changes in the thoughts, feelings and behaviours of your Earth Child. There are words, affirmations, intentions and prayers that really resonate with them and help your Earth Child approach things from their soul perspective. These are important at any age and can really help them cope with any negative thoughts, feelings or behaviours.
Words are pockets of energy, and word that resonates with the Earth Child is ‘know’, rather than ‘think’ or ‘feel’. For example, you could ask your child, ‘what do you know?’ or ‘if you knew the answer, what would it be?’ This word deeply implies intuition and really helps your child respond to situations from their gut feeling.
For your Earth Child is ‘know’ is a word that they can use to connect to their wisdom and their higher self.
An ‘I Am’ statement is a way to align with Universal energy and God. It reminds your child of who they are and how they want to feel. An affirmation is a positive statement, confirming something to be true. Affirmations can be introduced consciously or sub-consciously at any age. For example, they can be introduced through artwork, audio, or even video recordings.
For your Earth Child, the ‘I Am’ affirmation is, for younger children:
I am fun, and I choose optimism.
As they get older:
I am intuitive, and I am fun and full, and I choose to have fun.
An intention is a guiding principle in life, a target to aim for. In medicine, intention is recognized as the process for healing. Once again, you could introduce the intention through artwork, audio, or video recordings.
For your Earth Child, the intention is:
My intention is to live as a positive, full and fun person who is creative and full of ideas and imagination.
Prayer is spiritual communion with the soul or higher self; an appeal or request to live in a state of grace.
An additional prayer for your Earth Child at bedtime is:
I breathe in positivity, and I breathe out pessimism. I breathe in happiness, and I breathe out negativity.
Knowing your child’s SolePath helps you uncover their Language – their words, affirmation, intention and prayer. Language is responsible for clear communication and successful interactions with your Earth Child. Using their special language helps your child understand and cope with emotions, and it is the genesis of critical thinking, problem solving and decision making. Language helps your child make sense of their experiences and the world around them.
Knowing 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.
