Perhaps you are the parent of such a young, sensitive child facing a life-changing challenge. Or perhaps there is a wounded child living within the depths of your own personal history, recognizable from school-age photos, a world of hurt and confusion behind a tentative smile. The bottom line is that all children benefit by knowing the spiritual resources available to them. In my experience in the healing arts for the past 25 years, a spiritually resourced child is stronger, calmer, more compassionate, more successful and more resilient.
An additional word about the value of healing an inner child. Remember that the subconscious has no sense of time. When an inner child is offered the gift of knowing he or she can call upon Angels and other Heavenly Beings for help in a variety of situations, that child actually “grows up” with those resources in place, completely changing the landscape of the person’s subconscious and in turn, his or her whole life. Yes, it’s never too late to have a happy childhood! .
Someone to Watch Over Me introduces spirituality as a practical resource, without religious context. Children under 6 would benefit most from experiencing the book with an adult, but it is accessible for older readers to enjoy on their own. From Aa to Zz, each letter of the alphabet is presented in the Vimala Font, followed by a Declaration for that letter, the Guardian Protector of that letter, and a question for thought or conversation. A specific invitation and space are included for a picture of the Guardian Protector of each letter to be drawn with the non-dominant hand, of particular benefit to adults using the book for their own healing to access their inner child very directly.
In addition to its introduction to spirituality as a whole and the concept of Guardian Protectors in particular, Someone to Watch Over Me is also a celebration of The Vimala Alphabet and System of Handwriting, developed by Dr. Vimala Rodgers, an alphabetician of world renown. On an everyday, practical level The Vimala Alphabet and System of Handwriting capitalize on handwriting as an important mind-body connection, an all-too-often ignored avenue for optimal brain and character development. On a higher level, Dr. Rodgers’ lifework revitalizes ancient traditions of the alphabet as a spiritual path.
