Your own emotional state can certainly impact your children. Research has shown that our bodies produce energy patters. For example, the brain produces an electrical energy signal known as brainwaves (EEG). The heart also produces electrical and acoustical energy waves.
Reflect on your own experience of being with people, especially people you don’t know. Some people you feel comfortable with, others you don’t. People give off “vibes” or energy signals. The truth is that we are all transmitters and receivers of energy, and that energy affects each and every one of us.
A great example of this is to take a series of pendulums and place them on the wall and start them at different times. In time, the smaller pendulums will synchronize their swinging pattern with that of the largest pendulum. Eventually, all the pendulums will be in synchrony. The pendulums, if viewed as a system, will be in a state of order, coherence, or harmony. When a system is coherent, virtually no energy is wasted. The same happens with tuning forks. If one tuning fork is hit and begins to resonate, when another tuning fork is placed near it, the tuning fork begins to vibrate. In families, increased coherence translates into increased levels of creativity, cooperation, and feelings of happiness and joy. Be the “big pendulum” and “tuning fork” in your family. Be centered, relaxed, joyful and loving.
