It’s what you are
I was listening to Elizabeth Lesser on Oprah’s Soul Series Radio Show a few months ago. A caller was asking how parents should share the process of their divorce with their children. Elizabeth said “It is not what you say but what you are.” What she is saying here is that no matter what you verbally say the children will feel the energy of what you are. They truly know if you are the good witch or the bad witch through unspoken words. If we really pay attention we all can feel the emanating energy of another soul. I believe children are especially keen to this energy since there are fewer layers of life issues around their hearts.
I think this is a wonderful life lesson for all stages of our journey. We place so much value on words these days when the greatest value should be placed on what we are.
