The Aquarian Child

When an Aquarian child is in your presence it can be like a breath of fresh air walking in to the room. A born torchbearer and light carrier, they radiate energy for change. They carry enthusiasm for new ideas and will work to create the change together. A networker and visionary, they are able to imagine a future with liberal, broad and unbiased possibilities.

The Aquarian Child

They are able to walk and express freely, as an individual in the world, here to work cooperatively and assist the world community through participation. They are our change makers and need all the support they can get to be the change in the world we wish to see! Luckily the First Light flower essences No 31 Native Iris, No 32 Ice Plant and No 33 Rewarewa are here in the flower essence family to support and honour these children’s paths to assist humanity into the future.

These children hold concepts, vision and understandings ‘beyond their years’. Their ideas may seem radical, as the world around them is yet to discover this level of understanding. If you are a parent, grandparent, teacher or friend of one of these children it is worth considering how it can feel for this child if their uniqueness is not recognised or honoured. They can feel painfully misunderstood and left out and may isolate themselves from the world by withdrawing inward.

Expressing willful or highly strung behaviour, choosing to create havoc by upsetting the status quo and angry responses when things don’t go their own way are all negative Aquarian behaviour patterns. No 31 Native Iris will assist them to restore their balance. If your child is rejecting norms and systems that do not serve their inner needs, No 31 Native Iris will assist this child to celebrate and express as their unique self, the individual they are.

Essentially these children want to bring change to the world and their communities may not fully understand their inner quest and roles to play. I hear more and more parents talking of willful, sometimes destructive and mindless behaviour in young children and teenagers alike. Reading a newspaper often shows us some extreme responses of our young people .The out of balance Aquarian teenager may show anger at authority and choose to rebel due to peer pressure or trends.

Flower Essences No 31 Native Iris, No 32 Ice Plant and No 33 Rewarewa will assist any child experiencing pain, anger, avoidance, stress, anxiety or depression relating to feeling different, not belonging, peer rejection or being part of a group. These situations often show themselves in childhood and the teenage years as the child or young person seeks to answer the questions “who am I, what are my talents, what makes me unique and an individual?”

It is worth remembering also these children are particularly susceptible to forms of mind control including TV, media, peer groups and cults.
