"For working with children I would especially like to mention my 'I AM' Pools of Light Ascended Masters and Angels cards. I myself have worked with several children with these cards with positive and lasting results....Why? The images are created from fractals then into mandalas, These patterns seem to really resonate with children. They also work on a very similar vibrational level to Masarau Emoto's water crystal images." Kindly offered by Gitama Day
I think these are wonderful resources for practitioners, parents and teachers alike. Just allow the child to select the card that they like, let them take some time to look at the card and "absorb" it. Then they may wish to sleep with that card, do a healing drawing or just being with the card has been enough for the healing to take place. I will be using these cards in my clinic with balances so why not book an appointment now. Please contact me if you wish to purchase cards. Thank you
