Kids. A parent's most valued, cherished accomplishment. When asked what parents want for their children, the majority will say "happiness". We love to see our children growing, thriving, loving and laughing. But what happens when all that seems to be taken away by difficulties we don't always understand? We search, research, and eventually find help in the form of doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, etc. Sometimes the child is diagnosed with one or multiple "disorders". What then? We try various therapies, medications, tests, classroom adjustments, and even hospitalization in some cases. It is an emotional, frustrating battle for both parent and child.
I have a son who was diagnosed with Pervasive Development Disorder when he was 3 years old. He LOVED fans. Yes, fans. He would find fans in every building we went into and excitedly ask to watch them, touch them, count them. We would visit the "fan aisle" in Home Depot regularly. He also had a large collection of fans from box fans to handheld fans. (Large fan, Baby fan, etc.) His favorite (and still is) is a white oscillating fan from his Granny. If a fan broke, it was devastating to him. This was cute behavior at first, until we noticed that he didn't want to interact with people, only fans. Hmmm. So off to the psychologist we went for testing.
As the years have gone by, we have encountered many different troubling behaviors with him. He dislikes authority. The hierarchy of adult to child is not the same in his eyes. Adults, teachers and peers must earn his respect. You can imagine how his teachers have dealt with this. He has experienced depression, anxiety, seizures (behavioral), feelings of not belonging, not being understood, and self hate. Just going to school every day is TRAUMA. After vigorous testing when he was 10 years old, we came to learn that he has many signs of ADD, Aspergers, and being auditorally "gifted". I use quotes here because it is a gift to remember everything you hear, but it is also a terrible distraction to hear every single sound in a room. There was so much going on that no therapist wanted to work with him, the schools didn't know what to do with him, and medication just made him feel worse, in most cases. Now what???
Being the Taurus that I am, I was not about to give up on my boy. He had his shining moments of being truly happy. I wanted to give him more! That was when I found our "trifecta". My son's energy runs at an extremely high vibration, making him sensitive to chemicals and medications. (For more info on how to discover your frequency, I recommend Biofeedback with Balanced Living, LLC )Upon discovering this, I knew that we had to help him naturally. After many months of trying various supplements, we discovered a perfect combination for him. BiOmega from USANA and Nerium's EHT. Omega fatty acids are calming, and they are the perfect partner for the Mental supplement EHT, which helps with focus among other wonderful attributes! Please feel free to visit my products page to learn more about those. Yes, I sell them because I BELIEVE in sharing something that works after YEARS of RESEARCH!
So what is the third element of this amazing, life-changing "trifecta" that has helped my son? Reiki! Once I became empowered with Reiki, I was able to place healing hands on my son to calm him and ground him. After years of feeling so out of control, he his grateful to have something help him feel SAFE in his own body. Each time he lays down for a full session, he quickly falls asleep. Sometimes he just needs a quick Reiki hand to help him feel more centered or heal a small injury. The best decision- He is now empowered with Reiki, too. This means that Life Force Energy will constantly flow through him, forever. And he can self-reiki anytime he feels he needs it.
My son is now 15. He is thriving in school, taking some advanced courses. He is making friends (his "mates" as they call themselves). And he is HAPPY. What more could a parent ask for?
