Parenting is a challenging and ever learning process. All parents want their kids to be happy and wish great and wonderful things to happen in their children’s lives. We all do the things like send the children to school to get good education, take them to playgrounds, parks and holidaying so that they can experience different things in life and enjoy and have fun. While all the activities, games, trips and tours are important for the physical, mental and emotional development of the child, one must not forget that spiritual development is also an essential part of the growing process and should not be ignored. Spiritual healing is a great way to help your child in his spiritual growth.

Spiritual healing can be used as a great tool for strengthening the child’s spirit and will power which will help him to understand and handle difficult situation with ease later in life. Spiritual healing can help in improving the mental health of the child and enable them to handle anxiety, competition and other such challenges. It is even helpful to children to deal with the various situation of loss or change that can occur at any age in life.

Children have an open mind and hence unlike adults they can accept new techniques or concepts without any prejudice or barriers in the mind. Hence it is seen that spiritual healing can work wonders in children because they can easily have faith in it. Hence it can be used for curing physical and mental ailments, elimination of unknown fear, eliminating anxiety caused by loss of loved one, stress caused by changes in lifestyle because of moving from one place to other etc.

We as adults tend to believe that children will “adjust” to the change in their life and get used to it. Loss of a grandparent or pet, bullying at school, difficultly in learning or writing, change in location and separation from friends etc. can all cause stress to the children. Sometimes if attention is not paid to small things at young age then it can cause a great impact on the young impressionable minds. Fear of the unknown, fear of the dark, fear of crowds, stuttering, shyness in certain situations are the things that are not present at the time of birth. These are learned habits which can be caused by variety of situations and just as they are learned they can be unlearned by spiritual healing.

Spiritual healing also is helpful in children with special needs. Several psychologists have tried these methods on children with special needs and have achieved great results. Spiritual healing can also bring lot of improvement for children with moderate or severe learning disabilities. It helps establish the mind body connection for the children and help create a calm that can help them to overcome their challenges.

Spiritual healing can resolve the issues of low self esteem or low confidence by using meditation and guided imagery. These techniques of spiritual healing have proven to be extremely effective.
