Teaching Children Spirituality.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


My husband and I want to start learning more about and living a more spiritual life and are both turned off by organized religion. We have two young sons, and would like to be able to start organizing and understanding our beliefs so that we will be able to explain something to our children when the time comes – but we have no idea where to begin. I know there are thousands of books out there, and wondering what a good 1st step would be for both of us? Do you have a recommendation on a 1st book or exercise we could do together?


A good book for you two to begin with is a book I co-authored with Kristina Tracy On My Way to a Happy Life . It is built on the ideas from The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, but written in a language more accessible to kids. Here are the 7 laws for children.

The Seven Spiritual Laws for Children:

  1. Everything is possible. We all have the gift of creating absolutely anything. There’s no limit to what we can do or be.
  2. If you want to get something, give it. Always give with a happy heart. The greatest gift is feeling good.
  3. When you make a choice, you change the future (karma). Your choices bring about changes. To make good choices, follow your heart. How do your choices make you feel?
  4. Don’t say no—go with the flow. Create peace within by learning acceptance of what is outside our control.
  5. Every time you wish or want, you plant a seed. Making your wish is like planting a seed and believing that it will grow. Let nature do the rest.
  6. Be open to life and enjoy the journey. New ways and new ideas can lead to more happiness.
  7. You are here for a reason. Your dharma is your purpose, path, or vision, the unique talent that you are here on Earth to share. Your dharma is your happiness.

These principles will help you clarify the foundation principles of your spiritual growth. From there, it is vital to begin a daily spiritual practice that nurtures and awakens your consciousness through direct experience. It can be as simple as a meditation where you are mindful of your breath as you breathe in and out.

As your own awakening unfolds, you will be teaching your children about spirituality by your own example, and that is always the best way.
