You can probably think of ways adults could have assisted you in your childhood so you would have had an edge in life. If you have kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews, godchildren, or you mentor or teach kids, maybe you help them in ways you were not. Below are some metaphysical ways you can give kids an edge in this world.

Meditate daily. This will help you be calm and centered so you can react to your child in the best way possible. When she is old enough to sit with you and focus, you can teach her to meditate too. Think of the head start she will have in all areas of life if she learns how to tune out distractions and find her inner peace.

Clear your energy. Spiritual debris is everywhere and children are more vulnerable to it. Clearing yourself and your home will benefit your kids too.

Don’t drink heavily or do drugs anywhere near your kids. Spiritual troublemakers come running to people who overindulge, and these lower energy forms can target the weaker energy of kids too. But even if you do it away from your kids, you’re still setting an example for them.

Consider a numerology or astrology reading for your child. A good comprehensive numerology or astrology reading can help you realize your child’s talents and skills so you can encourage them in the right direction for future success. It can also uncover potential problem areas so you know what to help them work on.

Notice past life signs. If he is especially good at something, he may have done it before in past lives. Encourage him. An unexplained fear may also be a carry-over, and you can help him deal with it with your awareness.

Pay attention to dreams. Encourage your children to think about what their dreams mean to them so they learn about how the subconscious mind speaks to us in dreams. Nightmares of being chased might indicate troublemaker spirits in the area.

Pay attention to their “imagination.” Sometimes imaginary friends are more than that. Children, usually up to around age 7, are better able to perceive ghosts or lost souls. Sometimes imaginary friends are harmless, but if you sense something unseen that is negative for your child, use spiritual clearing to send it to the Light.

Teach your child acceptance. By being an example, you will show him the best way to handle difficult situations that you cannot change.

Teach your child forgiveness. By being an example, you will show her the power of forgiveness, and how it’s for you, not the perpetrator.

Teach your child gratitude. Expressing gratitude for the circumstances, things, and people in your life will show him how gratitude can act as a magic wand to help deal with conflict and bring more good things into your life.

Teach your child to honor and trust her intuition. This can be with or without meditation. Children often just “know” things. Pay attention to this and help her develop it.

Teach your children about karma. Help her realize good actions will beget more of the same in the future, and how destructive behavior comes back to you too.

Teach your child about life after death. Help him understand that death isn’t an ending, but a transformation, and that we’ll all see each other again.

Teach your child how to be of service to others. Help him realize that even a small, seemingly insignificant yet loving gesture can make a big difference in someone’s life.

Don’t encourage love life fairytales. When she is ready to date, help her understand that everyone has many soul mates, each might be destined for a different purpose (not always marriage or together-forever-in-bliss), and relationships started at a very young age are not always destined to be lifelong.

Turn off the video games and TV. This isn’t really a metaphysical tip, but still important. Help your teens learn basic life skills like keeping a budget, cooking healthy meals, daily exercise, productive scheduling, avoiding procrastination, how to deal with difficult people in a positive way, decision making, and taking responsibility for their actions.

Work through your own issues so you don’t project them onto your child. Heal yourself so your child won’t have to heal because of you.
