…from Chapter Eleven: Resilience in Action: Transforming Children, Parents, and Education

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the World”, Nelson Mandela

Children are our future. Whether we are parents, teachers, police, religious, or volunteers, we all want to invest all our love, wisdom, and guidance to prepare our children for life. Children are like a seed that has all the potential of the mature plant, that realizes its full potential through practicing principles of gardening or horticulture.
Raising children with an understanding of the Principles of resilience allows that seed to grow, to help them realize their purpose, talents, happiness, and success in life. Without an understanding of the Principles behind resilience, we as influencers in their lives are handicapped to nurture that resilience. This chapter will share stories of how the Three Principles are transforming parenting, education, and counseling children.

Throughout this varied experience, Christa has benefitted from an understanding she encountered when she was a student at the University of BC in 1975. At that time, she was introduced by Sydney Banks to what today is called the “Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness, and Thought.” Even a first glimmer of this knowledge had the power to transform her life by impacting her teaching and learning, as well as deepening the level of happiness and peace of mind in her personal life. Christa was privileged to be mentored by Mr. Banks throughout her teaching career. For 40+ years Christa had achieved dramatic results sharing the Principles with her own students and therefore was inspired to answer the National Resilience Resource Center call for a global curriculum. With a team, she developed and designed the MGI series to innovatively meet government education guidelines. My Guide Inside is disseminated in over 20 countries and multiple translations are available. Christa lives on Salt Spring Island in BC; she enjoys connecting, sharing, and collaborating with educators in the global community.

Unlocking Resilience in Turbulent Times

What is the Transformation Principle?  This principle is a realization of the fundamental way our mind works that brings about a “transformative resilience” that radically shifts the way we understand ourselves and our chaotic world. It creates an inner strength and self-confidence, enabling us to see it is our thinking that creates our experience and the quality of our lives.
