Children and Spirituality: Searching for Meaning and Connectedness - Brendan Hyde 2008

Amazon Synopsis: Brendan Hyde identifies four characteristics of children's spirituality: the felt sense, integrating awareness, weaving the threads of meaning, and spiritual questing. These characteristics can be observed in children if those who work with them know what to look for and are alert to the time, place and space in which children find themselves.

This book provides ways in which schoolteachers and parents can nurture and foster these particular characteristics of children's spirituality. It also considers two factors, material pursuit and trivialising, which may inhibit children's expression of their spirituality."Children and Spirituality" will be of great interest to educators, policy makers, parents, and others who work with and seek to nurture the spirituality of children.

 

The Children of Now – Dr. Meg Blackburn Losey 2006

Amazon Synopsis: The Children of Now is a groundbreaking work that shows that a large number of kids come into the world bearing inherent gifts that are beyond strange--they are telepathic, understand subtle energies, and/or have amazing psychic abilities. Many of them remember where they were before they came to Earth and often can describe past lives.

Many doctors mislabel them as autistic, ADD, ADHD, or suggest other behavioral difficulties. More than half the time, these doctors are wrong. The Children of Now are not defective--they are differently functional. We are doing ourselves and the world a great disservice by not acknowledging these amazing children and their special gifts.

A surprising percentage of these children carry within themselves wisdom far beyond most adults. The phenomenon is very real, and more and more of these highly evolved children enter our world every day. The Children of Now offers not only genuine stories of many children who have brought amazing talents into our world, but also practical, easy solutions to assist society in supporting and nurturing these gifted--not defective--children and their families, rather than labeling, segregating, and condemning them.

Fascinating to anyone with an open mind, and life-illuminating for parents with these incredible kids, Meg offers detailed answers derived from counseling real kids in real families.

The Children of Now is a must-read for every parent, teacher, caregiver, and child advocate. In it you'll discover:

  •  Why our children's DNA is different from previous generations'.
  • The traits and needs of the Crystalline Children.
  • The Children of the Stars and why they are here.
  • Real stories of real children as Dr. Meg helps them and their families search for answers.
  • Why these kids are exhibiting telepathy, telekinesis, healing abilities, and more.
  • How to help the Children of Now at home, at school, and socially.


Children's Past Lives: How Past Life Memories Affect Your Child - Carol Bowman 1998

Amazon Synopsis: Has your child lived before?  

In this fascinating, controversial, and groundbreaking book, Carol Bowman reveals overwhelming evidence of past life memories in children.  Not only are such experiences real, they are far more common than most people realize.  

Bowman's extraordinary investigation was sparked when her young son, Chase, described his own past-life death on a Civil War battlefield--an account so accurate it was authenticated by an expert historian.  Even more astonishing, Chase's chronic eczema and phobia of loud noises completely disappeared after he had the memory.  

Inspired by Chase's dramatic healing, Bowman compiled dozens of cases and wrote this comprehensive study to explain how very young children remember their past lives, spontaneously and naturally.  In Children's Past Lives, she tells how to distinguish between a true past life memory and a fantasy, offers practical advice to parents on how to respond to a past life memory, and shows how to foster the spiritual and healing benefits of these experiences.  

Perhaps the most moving, convincing, and best-documented evidence yet for life after death, Children's Past Lives will stand alongside the classics of Betty J. Eadie, Raymond Moody, and Brian Weiss in its power to comfort, uplift, and transform our thinking about life after death.  


Children That Time Forgot - Peter & Mary Harrison 1991

From the Authors: Is there a human Spirit? Does it exist after death? Where was Spirit before birth?  

Since the dawn of time humanity has pondered the question of it's own mortality. What domain do we go to after death? The authenticated accounts in 'THE CHILDREN THAT TIME FORGOT' stirred up a lot of questions and debates when it was first published.  

The original idea came to co-author Mary Harrison when she observed her youngest son trying to pick flowers from a floral pattern on her bed cover. The littler baby's actions seemed so quirky and amusing that Mary was prompted to have a letter published in Woman's Own.

She asked if other mothers had experiences similar funny moments with their little ones. She was completely unprepared for the replies she got - Mary was overwhelmed with letters from parents reporting accounts of reincarnation.

From this 'THE CHILDREN THAT TIME FORGOT' was born.  


Children Who Remember Previous Lives: A Question of Reincarnation - Ian Stevenson 2000

Amazon Synopsis: This is the revised edition of Dr. Stevenson's 1987 book, summarizing for general readers almost forty years of experience in the study of children who claim to remember previous lives. For many Westerners the idea of reincarnation seems remote and bizarre; it is the author's intent to correct some common misconceptions. New material relating to birthmarks and birth defects, independent replication studies with a critique of criticisms, and recent developments in genetic study are included. The work gives an overview of the history of the belief in and evidence for reincarnation. Representative cases of children, research methods used, analyses of the cases and of variations due to different cultures, and the explanatory value of the idea of reincarnation for some unsolved problems in psychology and medicine are reviewed.


Conversations with the Children of Now – Dr. Meg Blackburn Losey 2008

Synopsis: This stunning new book introduces the world to some of the very special and gifted children who were described in Meg Blackburn Losey's The Children of Now. The Children of Now changed paradigms of how we raise, teach, and nurture our children, and created awareness that ADD, ADHD, and autism just might not be what we thought. The book touched parents, teachers, and caregivers all over the world.

Now, in Conversations With the Children of Now, Dr. Meg goes even further to spotlight some of the Children of Now and others who have come forward since the first book was released.

Intricately woven conversations with Indigo Children, Crystalline Children, Star Kids, and Transitional Kids reveal the hearts and souls of our future generation. These real children share their feelings and perceptions about themselves and our world. Hear, in their own words:

  • Who they really are.
  • Where they come from.
  • Why they are here, and what they have come to share with humanity.
  • What they know about God, and about Living and Dying.
  • What they know about the healing of hearts and souls, and of bodies and minds.
  • What will happen in the 2012 shift.

These children speak about past lives, other worlds, forgotten gifts, and unconditional love as a way of being. They show how we can change our world with grace. They also reveal how we can guide them, nurture them, and allow them to become the great human beings they were destined to become!

 

EFT for Parents - Karen Curry 2002

From Foreward: Parenting has never looked or felt like I thought it would. I wasn’t prepared for the joy of first grins, teeth, steps, giggles, sweet angelic slumber and the almost adult conversations that I have with my twelve-year-old. I also wasn’t prepared for the colic, the word “NO”, the nightmares, the bullies, the hurt knees, the sibling fights, or the end-of-the-day exhaustion.

Most importantly, I wasn’t prepared for the realization that most of my problems with my kids were about ME, not about them. I’m not sure how well I would have survived parenthood, however, without some very important tools I have learned along the way—especially the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). EFT has made me a better parent. With EFT I can disengage my own emotional issues from my children’s. Disengaging my junk from my relationship with my children has made me a more effective parent. - Karen Curry   Free PDF


Emissary of Love:The Psychic Children Speak to the World - James F. Twyman 2007

Amazon Synopsis: Jimmy Twyman travels around the world singing his songs of peace and harmony to people of all races, cultures, and beliefs. Inspired by the life of St. Francis of Assisi, he has been to every war-torn country in the world, often at great personal risk. But this is the story of a different kind of journey.

One night, while giving a talk in a private home in San Francisco, Twyman met a ten-year-old boy. When the boy touched Twyman's finger, suddenly Twyman could bend spoons with the power of his mind, could read thoughts, and could transmit images to others. Yet, later, no one who had been in the room could remember seeing the child!

The boy had said his name was Marco, and that other special children like him could be found in a monastery in the mountains of Bulgaria. Without knowing who or where they were, or how he would find them, Jimmy Twyman began an extraordinary journey to find Marco and the psychic children. In the process, he learned that the children had a message for all the world-and learned, too, that he was the one to deliver that message.

I Have Lived Before: The True Story of the Reincarnation of Shanti Devi - Sture Lönnerstrand 1998

Amazon Synopsis: The most thoroughly documented and authenticated case of reincarnation in modern times! This was NOT a case obtained through the use of hypnosis or any other means. Shanti Devi also reveals the extremely vivid memories of her experiences after Death, the period between her lives, and the return to a physical body! Even Mahatma Gandhi became involved and encouraged examination of the case.


Life Before Life: Children's Memories of Previous Lives - Jim B. Tucker 2008

Amazon Synopsis: This popular examination of research into children’s reports of past-life memories describes a collection of 2,500 cases at the University of Virginia that investigators have carefully studied since Dr. Ian Stevenson began the work more than forty years ago. The children usually begin talking about a past life at the age of two or three and may talk about a previous family or the way they died in a previous life. Their statements have often been found to be accurate for one particular deceased individual, and some children have recognized members of the previous family. A number have also had birthmarks or defects that matched wounds on the body of the deceased person.

Life Before Life presents the cases in a straightforward way and explores the possibility that consciousness may continue after the brain dies. It is a provocative and fascinating book that can challenge and ultimately change readers’ understandings about life and death.


Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives: A Holistic Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth – Deepak Chopra 2005

Amazon Synopsis: A much-needed antidote to our modern, assembly-line approach to childbirth, this new book is designed as a guide for all who wish to participate in the wondrous process of bringing new life into the world.

By integrating the best information from these two very different perspectives, this remarkable book gives readers the tools to ensure that our children are nourished by thoughts, words, and actions from the very moment of conception.

Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives is rich in practical information, including strategies to help enliven the body intelligence of unborn babies by nourishing each of their five senses, as well as through Ayurvedically balanced nutrition and eating with awareness. Specific yoga poses and meditation techniques reduce the mother’s stress and improve the infant’s emotional environment, as do tips for conscious communication with a partner. Exercises prepare parents for the experience of childbirth itself, followed by natural approaches to dealing with the first weeks of parenting, from healing herbs to enhancing your milk supply to coping with postpartum depression.

Psychic Children: Revealing the Intuitive Gifts and Hidden Abilities of Boys and Girls – Sylvia Browne 2007

Amazon Synopsis: The respected, world-renowned New York Times bestselling psychic takes on an intriguing new subject—the psychic abilities of children. Sylvia Browne shares profound stories of how children can be channels to the Other Side.

A child’s world is comprised of extraordinary things—vivid imaginations, imaginary friends, Zen-like naïveté, and a heightened sense of good and evil. In fact, it is now in vogue to proclaim that certain children are a direct channel to God, calling them Indigo Children or Crystal Children. But psychic Sylvia Browne knows these are merely fashionable labels. She recognizes that all children have unusual psychic gifts and abilities—including each one of us—but society has been conflicted about those gifts, at times cherishing them and often stifling them over the centuries.

Sylvia Browne writes from personal experience. After her own psychic abilities were revealed at age three, her mother tolerated but never encouraged her startling talent. Browne’s own son would exhibit psychic abilities of his own as a toddler, which she fully embraced and supported. What Browne has learned over a lifetime is that psychic gifts are present at incredibly tender ages; they are, in her view, special blessings from God. Some children learn to develop them while others are pressed to ignore them. In Psychic Children she illuminates the phenomenon, issuing a call to society for more understanding and acceptance of these remarkable children.

The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents: Guiding your Children to Success and Fulfillment – Deepak Chopra 2006

Amazon Synopsis: The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success was a phenomenon that touched millions of lives. Its author, Deepak Chopra, received thousands of letters from parents who expressed the desire to convey the principles they had learned to their children, along with questions about how to do so.

The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents is Dr. Chopra’s answer to those parents who wish to raise children with values that satisfy spiritual needs as well as create the experience of abundance. Exploring specific ways to practice the Seven Spiritual Laws as a family, Chopra explains how to convey these laws to children, and how to embody them in age-specific activities each day.

The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents moves us beyond a focus on private triumphs and failures to experience the spiritual nature of communion with family, to share with those closest to us the infinite riches of innocence and love.

The deepest nurturing you can give your child is spiritual nurturing.

There are seven simple sayings that can have a profound impact on your child’s life.

  • Everything is possible.
  • If you want to get something, give something.
  • When you make a choice, you change the future.
  • Don’t say no—go with the flow.
  • Every time you wish or want, you plant a seed.
  • Enjoy the journey.
  • You are here for a reason.

Raised with these insights, every child can obtain the success that comes from having the most valuable skills anyone can possess: the ability to love and have compassion, and the capacity to feel joy and spread it to others. In this essential work for every parent, Deepak Chopra reflects on his experiences as a father as well as his own spiritual journey and offers profound and practical ways for sharing these principles with your children.

When details of planes and war tragedies no two-year-old boy could know continued-- even in stark daylight-- Bruce and Andrea Leininger began to realize that this was an incredible situation.
