Children have a natural openness and faith that makes them especially receptive to working with the angels. Because of their heightened sensitivity to the energies in the world, children can be more prone to anxiety and stress. Amplifying this connection with the angelic realms can help your child feel more safe, protected, and safeguarded in all aspects of their life.
How to talk to your child about their Guardian Angel
Everyone has a guardian angel, with no exceptions. These beings of God’s pure light and love are with us from the time we arrive on the planet until our death. They are here to provide loving support, guidance, and protection in times of need.
Teaching your child about this loving friend that is with them always can alleviate much of the stress they feel about returning to school, or any other anxiety-inducing situation they may be faced with.
The book “Thank You, Angels!” by Doreen Virtue is a great way to introduce your child to angels and talk to them about how these beings of light can help them in many ways. Your child will feel comforted and at peace knowing that they are never alone.
Angel Oracle Cards are another fun and comforting for way for children to learn about and connect with their angels. These cards can be used in the morning for a positive start to the day, or after school or before bed to open a dialogue about what is going on in your child’s life and to gain insights and messages from the angelic realms to bring peace and comfort.
Two decks that I recommend for children:
Call upon the Archangels for help
Unlike Guardian Angels, who are unique and person to each individual, the Archangels are available to help everyone on the planet. Each Archangel has unique qualities and a particular “specialty” with which they help humankind. The Archangels are messengers of God who love each of us unconditionally, and we can call on them for love, guidance, and support anytime we need it.
The angels love to help us, and no request is deemed too small. Anything that can help us achieve greater peace will bring us closer to our own Divinity, so ask away! We needn’t fear that we are taking anything away from anyone as the angels can be everywhere at once. They are not limited to time and space as we humans are.
The Archangel Metatron is the angel to call on to help with your sensitive children. This angel can help bring courage and self-awareness to sensitive young people and help them with adjusting to socialization at home and at school.
The Archangel Gabriel helps with all aspects of children’s welfare, from conception through birth and into the raising of children. Archangel Gabriel’s nurturing energy can help provide comfort and peace to you and your child. You can also call on Archangel Gabriel to be with your child’s teachers, counselors, and childcare professionals.
The Archangel Michael is perhaps the most well-known of the angels. Archangel Michael can help protect us from any fears or anxieties. He helps instill courage and confidence, as well as the ability to speak our truth. I make it a habit to call on Archangel Michael daily for protection and clearing for myself and my entire family.
If by this point you are wondering what I mean by “calling on” the angels, all I mean is to ASK! You can create a simple prayer or statement with your child that you can use to ask for the angels’ help and blessings. You can even invent a silly song if that helps. It doesn’t matter how you ask your angels to help you, all that matters is that you do.
A simple statement such as “Archangel Michael please be with me today” is enough. Or you can get more specific and say “I ask that the Archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Metatron be with my child today as (s)he goes to school. Protect them and give them courage, wisdom and confidence today and always.”
The Archangel Collection of flower, sea and gemstone essences from Earth Angel Essences are another great tool to help your child feel loved, supported, and confident as they return to school. With angel blessings in every bottle, these powerful yet gentle remedies can be a great way to soothe anxiety. Simply add a few drops to your child’s water bottle that they take to school. They can also be added to a bath or placed in food. My 15 month old son loves his Angel Drops!
Here’s what mom Laurie has to say about her experience with the Archangel Michael Essence:
“I just wanted to let you know that I have been using AA Michaels essence in my sons water bottle that he uses at school for the last month. Within a week we noticed a dramatic change in his confidence level. He is no longer afraid to try new things (ie karate class and swimming with a bunch of kids he doesn’t know).
His teachers have noticed he is taking more initiative too. My son is five years old. He has no idea that I’m putting these in his water, so there’s the proof that your essences are working! Thank you so my much!”
We have a daily routine at our house that includes Angel Cards and Earth Angel Essences. My 15 month old son loves this part of the day and we make time as a family to work with the cards together.
