But kids are naturals. They just get it. Intuitively, they know exactly what to do. My husband said something about how they are closer to the All-Source, not so gummed up with people-think. He must be right, because sometimes I feel like Little Lad is teaching me. Well, actually, he is.
Last night, I sat down to do a little working on behalf of a preemie baby in the NICU. It was bedtime, so I did not invite anyone to join me & frankly, I liked the idea of working alone. Little Lad got wind of my intentions & immediately wanted to join. This is what he did:
He asked to light the incense & he placed the lit stick in a holder set in the seashell he found at the park the other day. I suggested that he move it to the East. No, it needed to be with the offerings to Lady Moon. Then, he went to get water, "So that 'Baby B' will be well enough to drink water soon." He brought in his own offerings from the fridge, "A snack for the Moon in case She needs it during the night." We talked about baby's medical condition & what kinds of healing she needed. Then he got up & pulled out his special paper & artist box. He drew 'Baby B' without the invasive therapy, but with the next step down -- interesting because I never mentioned the next step, but he knew it from his own baby brother's experience. He told me he was drawing all the love he wanted to send to her. He placed the finished drawing on the altar & went to bed. His work was done.
Lil' Lad sends love to Baby B
I could not have done it better myself.
