Coaching and Mentoring Our Children to Use Their Internal Guidance System

Children are very aware of their feelings. They may not know how to articulate what they are feeling to us, but they definitely know how they feel. Being aware of how they feel is an important part of learning to use their Internal Guidance System (IGS), which will help them to live their highest path as children and as adults.


If we can teach our children at a very early age how to listen to their IGS, then they will learn to trust that inner wisdom and be the independent teens and adults that we wish them to be.

When children are very young, most haven’t learned to hide their feelings yet.

While there are times that, in the moment, this may not seem like a good thing, being aware of their feelings and learning to trust in them is a key to their future happiness.

Conventional wisdom has us teach our children to conform. This starts up a contradiction inside them.

They feel one way, but are told to behave in another way. When this happens often enough, they begin to doubt their feelings.

We want to encourage our children to trust their feelings so they can then use their Internal Guidance System as a tool throughout their lives. We can help our children develop their IGS “muscle” by reminding them to check in with their feelings.

When they are faced with a decision and they do not know which choice to make, ask them to consider how they are feeling with both options. Does this choice make them feel happy or sad? Do they feel lighter at the idea of it or heavier?

Of course, the words you use will vary depending on the age of your children and their vocabulary level. You can even use a chart that has pictures of different facial expressions to help them indicate if they feel good about a particular choice or not.

You can also help your children to determine how to proceed by exploring ideas that come about from the initial choice. You help them navigate the stream of emotions, always steering them towards the ones that most excite them, just as you would paddle a canoe with the river’s current rather than paddling upstream.

By coaching and mentoring them early to navigate using their Internal Guidance System when they encounter other people who would steer them wrong, they have already grown confident in their IGS and ability to make their own decisions for their lives.

Our children will not always make choices that we agree with, or even approve of, but by allowing them the room to make mistakes, we are helping them to fine-tune their IGS. Of course we will do everything we can to keep our children safe, but beyond that we are here to guide, support, and believe in their abilities. 

We are not here to dictate what path they are on. We are all blessed with knowing our best and highest path and by teaching our children to trust in their Internal Guidance System, we will have the joy of watching them grow and follow the path that is right for them.


How the Law of Attraction May Affect Your Children’s Academic Standing

Parents wish to see their children succeed in all aspects of their lives. The Law of Attraction teaches that strong focus, determination, and a sunny outlook may help you to succeed, but it can be hard to decipher what kind of effect the Law of Attraction might have on your children. Image

How do you find out? Communication is always necessary, but you can see a positive influence just by examining how well they flourish in school. A few areas to take note of are:

Better Grades

By focusing on doing well in their studies, children will receive better grades. You have taught them to visualize what they want from life and how to focus and manifest it for themselves.

So long as you have also taught them the importance of good grades, they will be able to apply the Law of Attraction towards their schooling.

Better grades will give your child confidence. Knowing that you have given them good counsel will also give you a sense of pride or joy over their accomplishment. 

Stronger Friendships

Applying the Law of Attraction to the school environment may help your children to develop stronger friendships. You know that as an adult, this law has helped you to develop a variety of strong relationships.

Friendships are the only major relationships outside the family that your children develop at a young age. These friendships can help your child feel accepted and loved. It will also let them know that they are not alone amongst their peers.

Less Stress

School is stressful. If you think back to your own school days, you will realize that this is the truth. There is much to be learned. Between getting an education, gaining independence, and learning how to interact with others, the stress can really build up.

The Law of Attraction can be used to easily lower a child’s stress level. Think about it. Receiving better grades lowers the stress concerning education. Developing stronger friendships lowers the stress that learning how to interact may bring. Less stress creates happier children.

If your children are taught to think and remain positive throughout their time in school, you will see the Law of Attraction at work. Coaching and mentoring children on how to make use of the Law of Attraction are key to raising healthy, happy children. Parents who wish to see how this law is working in their children’s lives need only look to their schooling for a strong example.
