When talking to your kids about the Law of Attraction and how to apply it in their lives to get what they want, you might use games as a teaching tool. You’re not alone in moving away from the learn-by-rote method that most people were raised with.
Teachers of many subjects are coming up with fun and creative ways to teach a variety of subjects including math and grammar, so there’s no reason why the Law of Attraction can’t be fun too.
When you were a kid, you were probably often reminded that school was serious business. It was important that you studied hard and learned your lessons.
Typically, you would be reprimanded if you were caught playing games instead of studying or being silly.
Today’s teachers have learned a valuable lesson when they figured out that by having fun, kids learn concepts more quickly and remember them longer.
Some teachers create silly songs to help their students remember words or equations only to discover that their students are sharing the songs with other kids in the cafeteria.
As a parent, you can learn a lesson from all of this. For example, everyone knows that gratitude is an important and powerful emotion. When you feel grateful for something, you raise your vibration so you’re in alignment with receiving more things to be grateful for. Because of this, it is often taught that you should keep a gratitude journal and write down five to fifteen things every day that you’re grateful for.
This sounds wonderful and should raise your vibration, right? It certainly can, but if you approach this like a homework assignment or chore, then you’re defeating the purpose of the exercise. The important part isn’t really the journaling, but the feeling behind the journaling.
Whether you choose to have a written journal, video diary, or recite your list at night, you’ll make it more powerful when you do so with a happy heart. If you don’t like to write, sing a silly jingle filled with things that brought you pleasure that day. Use any tune that feels good to you and feel free to sing aloud or to hum quietly to yourself.
This could be a fun thing to do with your children to help them recognize and express their gratitude. You might even get up and march around the room while singing about how good the sunshine felt on your back, how someone smiled at you and you smiled back, or how you saw a cloud that looked like a cowboy.
By raising your vibration through a joy-filled process or game, you bring yourself into alignment with what you want. In turn, your alignment opens the Universe up to deliver your desires. By being silly about it with your kids, they will joyfully join in and be more likely to voluntarily talk or sing about the things that make them feel good. What a fun and wonderful lesson in what gratitude feels like.
