The tapestry of life is woven primarily in the home. Culturally, the home is the place where spiritual beliefs and values are passed on from generation to generation. Let’s explore what the ascended masters and current research present on this subject.

What is the spiritual role of a family in a home-centered culture?

The family is the fundamental social unit of society.  When the family is respected and valued, culture flourishes. Many consider that their most valuable possessions are the shared experiences and memories that link hearts together in a family.

 “The purpose of the family in our day and age is for man and woman to serve together as one–heart, head, and hand in the service of the Christ–to provide this fiery circle against the shocks of the world, to provide the cradle for incoming souls or incoming ideas for creative genius.”  

                           – Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Family Designs in the Golden Age seminar

In today’s world, family life is being challenged in many ways. Parents nurture the spiritual life of their children.

Parents have a significant impact on who their children turn out to be. When it comes to spiritual matters, parents have a greater influence on their children than the church. This is a very important idea because researchers contend that by the age of thirteen, the moral, spiritual and relational foundations of youth are established. Mark Holmen, in his book Church + Home, points out that parents are given responsibility to pass on the faith to their children from the Bible. In Deuteronomy 6: 4-9 we find the following: “Hear , O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord the God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down,and when thou risest up”.

The following graph indicates that the parents involvement with their children has a direct impact on the child’s spiritual development. To better understand the research done on this topic, visit Christian Schools International and read the “Nurturing Faith” blog.

Children are more likely to be attuned to their intuitive senses than adults.

As parents, it is important to allow your children to experience their sensitivities and listen to their stories, without judgment or ridicule.

Let children know at an early age that they can listen to the voice of the Inner Christ and commune with that Christ daily.

By constant daily communion, little children are approaching the day and the hour when their souls will be bonded to the Sacred Heart of their own Holy Christ Self.  Is it not a beautiful thing to see the intuition of children and their sense of rightness or wrongness in a given situation?” Maria Montessori
