It can be leveraged in a way that enables them to refine and reach their goals. 8. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind Like expectation, disappointment comes in all shapes and sizes. Maybe your son or daughter didnt get the roll they wanted in the school play, or they didnt make the varsity sports team or they didnt get accepted to their first choice college. 9. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind Whatever disappointment your child meets, dont just minimize the problem, expect them to sweep it under the rug, and to move on with their lives. Give them some time to experience their feelings and to mourn. 10. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind It is difficult to say how long exactly is the right amount of time to allow for mourning. Every situation is different, but if you can open your heart and tune into your child, you will get a good sense of how long is long enough, and you can support them through it. 11. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind Every hurt is different. It might take a few minutes or a few days. Once you feel that your child is ready to process their upset in a different way, you can help them to tune into their own Internal Guidance System (IGS) to examine other ways that they might choose to experience their situation. 12. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind You can help your children to focus on what they hoped for. Encourage them to tap deeply into the feeling that they would have experienced by realizing their desired achievements. This will help them to tune into their IGS and it will help them to uncover the motives driving their desires. 13. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind By tapping into their Internal Guidance System, they can decide if what they wanted was about having a level of prestige, if it was about connecting deeper with a peer group, or maybe they thought it would bring them popularity. 14. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind Whatever the motivating factor is, once energy is shifted away from disappointment and focussed on the desired positive feeling, your child can choose to be proactive about creating that feeling in other ways. By aligning with the positive instead of the negative, your child will actually allow for these experiences to come to them. 15. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind By clarifying their motives, your children can then use their internal guidance system to determine other ways of achieving the same type of feelings . 16. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind Perhaps a desire to get on the varsity team was about being with buddies and building a deeper camaraderie. There might be an opportunity here to build another type of team or to become a supporting member without actually playing. 17. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind Rejection can be used as a motivator to train harder with efforts to make the team next season, or to try out for another team. 18. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind By tuning into their IGS, your child can repurpose disappointment into a tool that can help them realize and achieve what they really want. Any disappointment can be converted into a stepping stone toward greater success. 19. http://www.SharonBallantine.com Parenting with the Law of Attraction in Mind Inside you will learn: What is yourInternal Guidance System & how you can benet from it.
