Heart Conscious Kids Can Change the World

Children are our future and heart conscious kids can change the world if we empower them and give them the chance to become massive contributors, achieve their highest and best and embrace their special gifts and abilities thereby making the world a better place.

The best place to start to empower kids is to get them connected to their hearts. They were born with this natural connection, but it rapidly erodes as they are prepared for real life. The earlier this connection is reestablished in humans, the easier it is because the longer this connection is severed the more difficult it is to reconnect.

Logic would dictate the earlier this reconnection takes place, the more impact can have on the world for there is more remainder of life to exercise one’s gifts and abilities powered by this heart-connection.

What are the attributes of kids who are heart-connected?

The me-me-me and “mine” fade away as they are less selfish, more apt to share, be polite, and kind.

In middle-class society more emphasis is placed on academics than this heart-connection. It would not take much of a shift to reverse this order of importance, but it must start with us first. We, the parents, the teachers, the childcare providers, rule makers, law enforcement, and influencers, like artists, musicians, actors, and actresses, need to start stressing the value of being connected to one’s heart center to empower one’s innate gifts and special abilities.

Our society then could convert to rewarding good behavior and providing opportunities for loving those who are hurting and acting out inappropriately, for love and heart-connection changes everything.

Bullying would fall to the wayside as the cycle of victimization would no longer be sustainable in a heart-centered world. When the bully strikes out and is responded to with loving kindness, the bully is disempowered. And if said bully could allow love to permeate the self-defense mechanism which strikes out at others, healing and transformation begin.

Four-year-olds are by far the most inquisitive as they are starting to get an idea about the life that is going on all around them. This is the perfect fulcrum-point in a child’s life. It is the dividing point determining whether they will go this way or that way.

Being mindful about how you answer questions asked by a four-year-old makes all the difference in that child’s future.

Heart-centered conscious kids are naturally concerned about our environment, they are thinking about how our waste affects the planet, easily adapt to repurposing and recycling. They are naturally interested in growing plants and flowers and learning about the environment as they seek to actively interact with and support it.

As they outgrow toys and clothes, they naturally seek ways to share them and bless those who are less fortunate, other kids who would be thrilled with those things which are no longer used or useful.

Heart conscious kids are fascinated with the idea of repurposing something old into something new by applying a bit of imagination, creativity, as well as various arts and crafts to give it new life.

Heart conscious kids love to volunteer. They are always on the lookout for different ways they can contribute or help others in need. They feel good about themselves, their life, and the world by participating in opportunities to give of their time, especially if it involves their special gifts and abilities.

Heart conscious kids want to make the world a better place. They are concerned about things that are affecting their lives, such as COVID-19. Depending on their age, they are diligently working toward a cure for the coronavirus with their science sets, or they are raising money to contribute to those who are doing the heavy lifting or are on the front lines every day.

You may find them with anything from lemonade stands or doing odd jobs and giving the proceeds to those in need. They are indirectly housing the homeless and feeding those who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

It’s not uncommon for a heart conscious kid to give proceeds from their birthday or some other holiday event in support of some worthy cause or organization whose efforts they resonate with.

These are our heart conscious kids, out there, having an impact on the world and making it a better place.

Top 30 Minds Silenced

Kids who are different, kids who are “bad,” may be the most special kids of all, the hope for a brilliant future, if we could only let them flourish and grow into the potentially most amazing minds contributing to a wildly better world.

Some of the most amazing minds in history were rebellious or abused children, or kids who would have been labeled with certain “disabilities” in our modern day, medicated into compliance, institutionalized, or potentially never survived long enough to make their contribution.

What is the price humanity is paying for attempting to control the quality of our children, so that they are easier to manage, control, more similar, or “normal?”

We put those unruly little curmudgeons into special classes, and schools to train them to be more controllable, keep them in fear of persecution or prosecution for being “different”, and develop new ways to subsidize their submitting themselves to veritable “invisibility”, or institutionalize them for noncompliance.

Drugging our children to turn them into compliant zombies does lighten the load on teachers and educational administrations, but at what cost?

What if we rolled back the clock and imposed this method or forsaking the uniquely individual child for the ease of managing larger numbers of compliant children en masse?

Then we would have missed out on the benefits we all enjoy due to the new ideas and thoughts that were bestowed upon us by the most amazing minds in our history.

For instance, take a look at these 30 minds, which would have been dumbed-down, drugged-out, or otherwise silenced by today’s standards:

Top 30 Minds Silenced

1. Alexander the Great
2. Hans Christian Andersen
3. Aristotle
4. Beethoven
5. Alexander Graham Bell
6. Andrew Carnegie
7. Lewis Carroll
8. Winston Churchill
9. Leonard Da Vinci
10. Charles Darwin
11. Emily Dickinson
12. Walt Disney
13. Thomas Edison
14. Albert Einstein
15. Henry Ford
16. Galileo
17. Vincent van Gogh
18. George Frederick Handel

20. John F. Kennedy
21. Abraham Lincoln
22. Michelangelo
23. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
24. Sir Isaac Newton
25. Norman Rockwell
26. Anna Eleanor Roosevelt
27. Nikola Tesla
28. George Washington
29. Orville and Wilbur Wright
30. Woodrow Wilson

To live in a world without the influence of just these 30, of some of the greatest minds of our time, would hardly be conceivable. Yet, minds, just like these, are being silenced every day as we medicate and segregate our children by modern methodologies.

The world we live in, today, is vastly different than the world we lived in, in the past. In many ways, this strange new world has presented us with unimaginable possibilities, especially when compared to the world where these 30 minds lived their lives.

While it is different and more advanced, what have we sacrificed for the benefit of those social engineers tasked with the management of the human race?

Do you feel like you are a more independent thinker?

And if you to think that you are an independent thinker, do you think that someone “out there” may have convinced you of those thoughts which you think are your own?

May those thoughts have been carefully placed there to more easily manage you?

Are we all just mice racing through a craftily constructed maze?

Might we be perpetuating this madness by imposing behavioral restrictions and segmentation of our children?

Are our rebellious children, or the ones who don’t fit in with their peers, potential geniuses?

I believe that even the most awkward of our children, the ones that face the greatest challenges, those who are diagnosed as, “disabled,” hold within their hearts and minds the keys to a greater world. A world so great, that there are others who may be afraid of its unfurling before us.

I live in this world, and in many ways, I play along… but I know that something grander lies just over the horizon, and a new day is dawning.

Just for Kids

If you’re a kid, and someone is trying to make you be something you know in your heart of hearts that you know you are not. Think about finding someone to talk to, who might be able to help you. Do not let anyone tell you that you are anything less than perfection, because the truth is: God doesn’t make junk.

You were made to be different, not just another face in the crowd. If you don’t fit in, great! That means you’re on the right path. You are special.

You are perfect, just the way you are. Maybe not perfect for the situation you are in, right now, but you, yourself are the perfect you. The most perfect that you could be at every moment of every day.

Will you make mistakes? Yes. Will you face challenges that sometimes feel like it’s just too much for you to handle? Yes. We all do. And we just keep on going. Just do the best you can with what you have. It’s all anyone of us can do.

Every step you take makes you better, stronger, and more prepared for your bright future.

Don’t lose sight of who you really are. One day, when the time is right, your light will shine.

You are amazing. We are so blessed that you are here, and we can’t wait for all the great things you have (or will have) to share with us.

We love you, no matter what.
