Happy 2020! As we move into a new decade we also move into a new time, the power of evolution is at work. You may have heard the terms crystal, indigo or star children. When I was born and could feel, see and hear spirit in 1972 it was not a safe time to show my gifts. I KNEW without a doubt that “New Kids”, I call them the Awake KID Ones, are the children who will show humanity the way forward. That is why I have dedicated over 20 years of my life to advance children’s issues on the statewide and national level. And now I am over the moon that Awake Kid One’s are being recognized! Now here we are in 2019, TIME’s person of the year Greta Thunberg is clearly an Awake Kid One who is speaking her truth and leading a movement to save our earth.
What defines an Awake Kid One?
– bright eyes, bright smile and high heart
-Loving intention and charismatic energy
-Works from a place of WE vs ME (egoless)
-Speaks kind words and does kind deeds
-Knows things intuitively
-Love easily and freely
-Feels ageless, always lives with a childlike heart
– Can be 3-140 years of age – AwakeKids Ones live in the now
It is imperative that we individually and as a society honor and support intuitive and sensitive kids. In my own experience being an extra sensitive and feeling misunderstood I turned to alcohol, food and drugs to numb the pain of knowing and feeling different from those around me. I even struggled with depression and had suicidal thoughts and attempts. Thankfully, today I am clean and sober and released over 150 lbs and help others to do the same.
Trauma, according to the American Psychological Association is “ an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape or natural disaster. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. While these feelings are normal, some people have difficulty moving on with their lives.”
In today’s world children need to prepare for the possibility of a school shooting, a tornado or hurricane or feeling threatened or bullied by others. The stress and tension has caused children to turn to alcohol and drugs at a young age. The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study looked at childhood trauma and adult health, the findings were that these traumatic experiences could affect the person even 50 years later.
International surveys show that traumatic experiences are very common across the world. One study showed that nearly half of all children in the United States are exposed to at least one traumatic social or family experience (Bethell et al, 2014). According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide is considered the second leading cause of death among college students, the second leading cause of death for people ages 25–34, and the fourth leading cause of death for adults between the ages of 18 and 65. We all need to support one another as we move into a new decade. I invite you to share on my facebook page your story about being Awake, send me an email or share a story on my social media #Awakekidones with your story about how you live in a higher frequency, how your children “know things” and spread empathy and compassion for all.
We as a species are in a big shift, we are moving from homosapien to homoluminous, science and medicine are seeing huge changes in the babies being born using more of their brain capacities than ever before. Children are being born with higher levels of empathy and love, humanitarian visions and sensitive bodies.
Psychological sciences at the University of Missouri released a 20-year study that gained worldwide attention in 2014 that shows infants as young as 2 months old already have basic knowledge of “intuitive physics”. Most studies into infant cognition use eye-tracking technology — psychologists can tease out what an infant is thinking and what she/he considers to be unexpected by following her/his gaze in different scenarios. This method, called violation of expectation, involves showing babies photos, videos or events that proceed as expected, followed by others that break everyday rules. If the infant understands the implicit rules, he or she will show little interest in an expected situation, but will stare at images of a surprising event.
“We believe that infants are born with expectations about the objects around them, even though that knowledge is a skill that’s never been taught,” Kristy vanMarle, an assistant professor of psychological sciences at the University of Missouri, said in a statement. “As the child develops, this knowledge is refined and eventually leads to the abilities we use as adults.”
Hespos and VanMarle also learned that infants can do math, Six-month-old infants can discriminate between numbers of dots (if one set held twice as many dots as the other), and 10-month-old infants can pick out which of two cups holds more liquid (if one cup held four times as much liquid as the other). Also at 10 months of age, babies will consistently choose larger amounts of food — such as crackers — in cups, though only if there are no more than three items in any cup.

This is showing the world that we are advancing as a species.
Researcher PMH Atwater LHD from her best selling book “Children of the Fifth World” reports “The greatest talent of the new children is the ability to abstract and function from the conceptual level. These children are not concrete thinkers. They are adept at the art of conceptualizing, dealing with broad ideas and notions. Forget thinking “outside the box.” For them, the box was never there to begin with. They can tie facts and figures and ideas together and rapidly produce solutions that fit, without having to go through conventional routines. Their minds leap instead of think. That’s why they buckle under “tried and true” methods that demand rote discipline. Kids who abstract get from here to there as if by magic; not because they are wise but because they do not recognize limits. A two-year-old child was in a conversation with her mother. She stopped midway, impatiently stomped her feet, and yelled: “I don’t know the word for that yet!” Stop for a moment. How does a child of two know she doesn’t know the word she wants to use at the precise moment she wants to use it? We mistakenly think the new children are wise old souls. This isn’t wisdom at work here–it is the amazing, almost unbelievable ability to abstract knowledge, to know things without knowing. These children are conceptualizers, made to order for the Conceptual Age. The greatest advancement of all advancements in our brain is the prefrontal lobes (both left and right). The prefrontals operate as the seat of judgment, morals, empathy, compassion, and well-being; they moderate social behaviors, decision-making, and personality expression. The prefrontals developed late in the evolution of humankind, becoming a signature feature for distinguishing higher brain development.”
As we move into a new way of living and leading, be hopeful, be bright and most importantly Be Awake, that is what will shape our earth luminously ..
In 2020 live in your high heart!
In divine loving service,
