Law of Attraction Homeschooling: Lesson 2

Not all of us who believe in the law of attraction are comfortable with the term God or believe in God, but for me they go hand in hand. It makes sense to me that the creator of our Universe set up the world so that feeling good and following our bliss would bring us even more good. I teach the concept from a Unity perspective, but you could simply fill in the Law of Attraction or Universal Principles, etc in place of God.

What is God to Me?

The Purpose of this Lesson: To define God in our own terms, in order to better develop a relationship with God

Materials or Recourses: 

journal and/or paints and paper

Optional books:

Things are Going Great in my Absence (I based this lesson on the Designing Your Version of God section in this book, but the book itself is not meant for children) by Lola Jones

Pronioa By Rob Bresney (more of a Law of Attraction book with lots of proof that the Universe is working to help you. This book is not really for children either, but you could pull out some pages or ideas that would be appropriate)

Lesson:

Begin by asking the children what their concept of God (or the Law of Attraction) is. Let them freely share all their thoughts, no answers are wrong.

Discuss how the God is everywhere all the time and he/she is so big that its hard for us to comprehend. One of Unity’s concepts is that God is love and I asked my children what this meant to them.

I gave them some time to paint or write about what God meant to them and then we shared our work. God mean something different to everyone and that’s OK. I guided my children to know that they can forge their own personal connections with God.  God can be a friend, a parent, etc. You can develop the type of relationship with God that brings you the most joy. Every person is unique and can connect with God in their own way.

They can talk to God (or the Universe) and expect that they are heard and loved. As they practice connecting, the relationship and the way they connect will grow.

LOA for the Homeschooling Parent

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting LOA Homeschooling lessons as I had planned.  Our first year of homeschooling hasn’t always gone as planned. Our first 5 weeks, we were actually attending an online school and I found much of the work was tedious and repetitive and there was a lot of it. We had to work in the evenings to get all the lessons done and we had no time for LOA or any other enrichment studies. We decided to leave this school and follow a better feeling method of schooling.  It took a little while to get our own school plan in place, but I am finally feeling good about our homeschooling. I’m actually feeling fabulous about it. We’ve been working on lots of fun lessons and my children are excited to learn again.  In the LOA lessons, we’ve done some work with Vision Boards that I’ll share next. My kids are asking to work with meditation, so we’ll do that next.

I had to remember that the way for me to find a good schooling plan for my kids was to follow the way to I manifest everything else. I relaxed and told the story of how I wanted it to be. If you are homeschooling, you can manifest the best situation for your family.

I’d love to hear any comments you may have or you experiences working with kids to develop their concepts of God. To prove it, I’m giving away a Facebook “manifesting plan” to one of my commenters during the month of October. I’ll put everyone’s name in random.org and choose a winner to be announced here around Nov 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details if I have access to their e-mail or you can check back here around the first and message me on my Facebook page. Once you tell me what you want to create, I’ll create a personal manifesting plan for you and we’ll make sure it feels good to you.

  • Michelle, I think it’s awesome your kids actually asked to work on meditation! If everyone raised children using this kind of programs, imagine how peaceful our world would be in 10-20 years.

    • Cloris, I know, maybe it would be a good way to decrease bullying. Instead of just trying to educate about the harm it does, I think if children meditated they would feel better about themselves and be less likely to bully others. I’m excited that my children enjoy learning about these concepts!
