The past few weeks I have shared with you a series of articles on the Aware Child.

Today I’d like to share with you what I actually mean by that!

Hold onto your hat!


Advocating For My Aware Child

October 11, 2018

Helen Joy Butler - Aware Child quote 3

Quite some years ago – five in fact – our now Mr 12 was in Year 2. He’d been through a rough trot with illness – glandular fever followed by continual tonsillitis, and an operation to eventually remove his tonsils and adenoids. Now that run was over and he was back to robust health, he was a typical, active seven year old, doing all the things little boys at that age do. He was having fun and was healthy and that meant the world to us.

But then things went pear-shaped, as they tend to do in many of our lives.

In reality, the impact of this event didn’t hit him as hard as it did me, his Aware Mother.

And at the time I probably didn’t realise the impact it would have on me or my message, but now I fully get it.

Let me explain why.

Why, As Adults, We MUST Help Our Children On Their Sanctuary Journey

October 4, 2018

Helen Joy Butler - Aware Child quote 2

As a child I grew up in the country. The town we lived in was small – only 3000 people – with pretty much everyone in the community knowing everyone else. As an adult I can see how that could be “interesting” but as a child it felt wonderful. There was always someone we knew keeping an eye on us, making sure we were safe, whether that was our parents, grandparents, or family friends. Of course as teenagers we weren’t so happy about this at all!

My Dad arrived in this small country town at the age of one, the eldest of seven children, living with his parents in a tent just outside the town for some time before enough money became available to move closer in. As the eldest child I am sure my Dad had a lot of responsibility growing up, to help his parents and siblings live a life which helped sustained them all.

I also know that my parents – and perhaps yours – had no idea of the concept of Sanctuary. And, importantly, they had no idea of how to help their children connect with Sanctuary. I mean, it just wasn’t a factor right? Parents worked and brought up their kids; kids grew up, went to school and tried to stay out of trouble.

And so it is that my generation – the one where technology has exploded and ‘busy’ has become the norm – have no idea how to bring about Sanctuary in our own lives. Technology and the speed of life has fast outgrown our brain and body’s ability to make sense of it all, let along reflect at length on the impact it may be having on our physical, emotional or spiritual health. I’ve spoken at length about this in my books and on the HJB blog.

So today I’d like to talk about the children in our lives – whether they are ours biologically or not – and why we, as adults, MUST encourage and support them on their Sanctuary journey.

And beyond all of this, how we bring about Sanctuary for the Aware Child.

Because without Sanctuary the Aware Child may grow up like me, and perhaps you – as a child who was misunderstood for her innate wisdom, stumbling through life wearing the “black sheep of the family” label very poorly, and often battling her own negative self-talk because of it.


When Synchronicities Gently Guide You Down A Different Path – A New Sanctuary Message To Share

September 27, 2018

Helen Joy Butler - Aware Child quote 1

A few months ago I shared a blog post called Are You Sensitive? Or Just More Aware?.

After it was published I took time to listen. To observe. To notice what was going on around me, including the ripple effects the article had on my own life and people I knew personally and professionally.

And what I noticed was quite astonishing.

What kind of things did I notice? you may ask.
