The Healing Power Of Children
by Rick Saldan
Children remain 'bundles of joy' all over the
world. We love their innocence, and their need is our command. But
have you every been exposed to their healing powers? You might be
thinking that I am out of their minds and possibly am
over-influenced by films like Matilda where the little girl had
heavenly powers to punish the evil and reward the good. I could also
never have believed the therapeutic effect which company of children
can give till I experienced a couple of events in my life. A good
lady friend of mine, a school teacher by profession had lost her
beloved husband in a tragic car accident. She had been enjoying an
exquisitely happy married life only for two and a half years when
My friend was inconsolable. She stopped attending her school job,
refused to communicate with anyone and cried incessantly. We as
friends tried our best to bring her out of the dark and depressive
den she called her home but she refused stubbornly till her school
principal, a warm-hearted pastor with a kind demeanor visited her
one day. He urged her to get back to school and commented that the
company of children would bring her incomparable peace of mind as
nothing else could. My friend, with great reluctance started
attending school again, after nearly three or four months. I met her
after a month and this is the time I was completely dumbstruck.
Where was that depressed soul who I met last time? Here was my
friend, back to her old self – bubbly, humorous and full of zest and
life. She was slowly getting her bearings though she definitely
looked run down. When I asked her about the secret of returning to
where she belonged – she squarely put the credit on to the children
in the school with whom she spent a better part of the day.
This incident left an indelible impression in my mind and I started
to probe deeper into the theory of healing powers of children. My
friend gave me many inputs to my study and she confirmed that the
more time you spend with people who are innocent, who give you
unconditional love, who are without any complications and whose mind
is free and uninhibited – you can derive tremendous joy and peace of
mind especially during troubled times.
When I started to preach this finding to my other friends, one of
them decided to check it out himself. He was going through very
insecure and troubled times in his job, while his wife ran a
successful day-care center for toddlers. He decided to spend his
morning hours before work with these tiny tots who were dropped off
at his home by their parents. While the children ran about in the
garden, as some one painted, some one used the swing, some one
dirtied himself in the sand pit – it became completely absorbing to
my friend, who for those couple of hours totally forgot about his
woes. He went to work completely refreshed ready to face the
challenges or the possible misfortunes, for the day, to the
amazement of his colleagues.
Thus, instead of getting bogged down by whatever destiny rolls out
in our lives, we can enjoy children as empaths to lift us up out of
the mental mess that we tend to fall into. Not only are they
innocent themselves, they even ask you innocent questions which are
a delight to deal with. Mixing with such uncomplicated and brave
souls even for a few hours in a day, could make a big impact in your
mind and can provide you some mental relaxation as no therapy or
medications ever can. Surprise them, teach them, play with them,
sing and dance with them and it's a another world, believe me.
