Using Angels To Help Children With Their Worries
Children are so amazing. They believe in the magic and wonder that adults have forgotten. They love the fantasy that many adults deem ridiculous.
When it comes to positive parenting it is all about trying to be the best parent you can whilst understanding and interacting with your child/children on their level. Angels are a great way to do this. Most children love to believe in angels just like they do the tooth fairy and Father Christmas. It is another way to bring magic and wonder into their lives.
Angels are always there to help and explaining this to children can have a great impact on their lives. I remember when my son was learning to cycle his bicycle without stabilisers. He was so happy to be doing this and even though I had asked him to wait until I was ready to help he proceeded to do it himself. Within minutes he came running indoors calling me to come watch what he could do. I was so surprised to see that he was cycling with no help at all. It seemed so easy to him.
I was also trying to teach my daughter who was eight at the time to cycle. She was extremely nervous and was a little frustrated that her younger brother had managed to learn so quickly. I could hear the two of them talking about it, my son offering to help her out. I listened because I could hear him telling her how easy it was. “just ask the angels to help” he said, “I did and they helped me.”
I have always explained to my children that the angels can help with anything and that it doesn’t matter how big or small it is. This one day proved to me that my son really believed this and he was asking the angels to help him. When I asked him about it he told me that he felt worried that he wouldn’t be able to cycle his bicycle so he asked the angels to help him and to take his worries away. He smiled up at me and said “the angels can do this you know.” I couldn’t help but smile back.
My daughter has also used the angels to help with worries. You may have heard of worry dolls where children tell their worries to these dolls and they take them away. In our home we took this one step further. I knew my daughter was sad and upset but she didn’t want to talk to me about it. I explained to her that she could ask the angels to help with her worries. I told her that if she wrote down all her worries and placed them under her pillow that the angels would come and take them away. She was seven at the time so this was perfect. She wrote her worries down and that night as she slept I removed the piece of paper and left a little white feather in its place. I read her worry letter and it turned out that she was worried about a spelling test she was going to have on Friday.
The next morning she was delighted with her feather and when I asked her if her worries were gone she looked at me and said “of course they are mum”. Just like that her beliefs had removed the worries. Reading her worry letter also reassured me that there wasn’t anything wrong. It also gave me the chance to spend a little extra time on her spellings that week. She was delighted when she got full marks in her test.
Whilst these two examples might be very small, they do show how angels can be very helpful for young children. My children have learned from a young age that they can call upon their angels for help whenever they need it. They call upon Archangel Michael if they are ever frightened or need some courage. They call on Archangel Raphael if they fall and hurt themselves. It has made a big difference to them and I notice that they are much more confident knowing that they have angel friends to call on whenever they need them.
If you are worried about your children why not try using the worry angel approach. It really does work and many times it saves days of worrying about what is going on with your child.
