This last Sunday I was blessed to spend some time with my 15 year old daughter, just her and I. I had a chance to talk to her about past and present relationships and tried to help her navigate how she should be approaching her thoughts on the present boy she has had a substantial relationship with online and in texting.
I shared with her the power of the mind and how a young woman healed herself with her thoughts. This woman was pregnant and only had months to live because her kidneys were failing. She got a visitor at the hospital and convinced her that she could heal herself. She spent everyday imagining her daughter growing up and her being by her side throughout every major event in her daughter’s life. She did heal herself. I shared with my daughter that she had that same power.
When I described how I had followed the river of dreams in my own life without a lot of intentional powerful thought I got what was dished up not what my mind could create for me.
As we cried through some painful memories and she understood what I was telling her. On our drive home she had already started a list of all the attributes she would like her partner in life to have. This was magical. I have started the process of helping her become an independent thinker.
