Before I even say a single word today, I want to let you all know that this is not a contradiction of what I wrote about yesterday and the mineral deficiencies, and you will understand more about why it is not, as I explained.
I am personally, of the opinion that each and every one of us are born of great empathetic ability. But, it is as we age, and we become emotionally hurt by others, that we begin building walls to separate and distance ourselves from those around us. Sadly, this separation has become a part of natural human instinct and how we protect our feelings.
It is this exact same building of walls and protecting ourselves, by blocking out everyone around us, that minimizes our empathetic abilities. But these children have not yet experienced the great emotional heart that causes us adults to build walls and shut down our empathy.
For any of you out there who is truly an empath, imagine a child of undeveloped mind, being placed in a classroom with an additional 20, 30 or 40 other children in very close quarters, and how it would affect to you as an adult, let alone a child of limited maturity. Of course they’re going to act out, and do anything they can to distract themselves. And of course, they’re going to have a deficit of attention, because the empathy will be overwhelming due to the fact that they don’t know what it is, and to them, it’s just a normal part of what they feel every day. They will, both consciously and subconsciously, seek ways to escape the constant feelings of being overwhelmed in a classroom setting.
But did you know that most children with ADD and ADHD have well above average intelligence? And if you take a child with ADD or ADHD and you put them in a room by themselves, with a computer or a book, most of them, barring any other behavioral issues, will learn very quickly and retain information, not only easily, but also exceptionally.
The inability to cope with our own empathy is born of the exact same mineral deficiency causations as ADD and ADHD. And this is where it all connects.
Combine a lack of understanding of our own empathetic abilities, along with immaturity and mineral deficiencies associated with great behavioural issues, and we have the perfect storm for what the psychiatric industry has labelled ADD and ADHD.
Just sit back and observe your children when they are with other children, and when they are by themselves and you will see this for yourself. You’ll notice that the more children they are around, the more they act out, the more hyper that they become, the less that they pay attention, but when you put them by themselves, they are literal geniuses, and I’m not just being polite. They are literal geniuses!
Pay very close attention to your ADD/ADHD children, in this aspect, and you will see it for yourselves!
