Embodying Our Awareness

By Janiece L. Boardway, M.A. and Michael P. Boardway, R.A.

For many years, we have been hearing the word “sensitive” when describing many of these new children (teens and adults) and we hear from many people who have questions about the “sensitive” children in their lives. We have heard that they are sensitive to food, sound, colors, clothing, electronics, the environment and many other factors. Now it seems like “energetically sensitive” is the new buzz phrase in describing many of the children as well as many of us.

There was something about the word “sensitive” that made us feel uncomfortable, so we decided to look up the meaning of this word. In the dictionary, “sensitive” is described as a person who is susceptible to the attitudes, feelings, or circumstances of others, quick to take offense; touchy, and easily irritated. No wonder we always felt our energy drain when we heard this word. It certainly is not very empowering, is it?

We then thought about the word “aware” and immediately felt a lightness energetically. We looked up its meaning in the dictionary, and discovered that “aware” is defined as a person having or showing realization, perception, or knowledge. Now doesn’t that feel empowering? We truly felt that an aware person is one who has many choices and possibilities available.

Looking back on our journey with our son, Tristan, we have always seen him as being highly aware and not sensitive. Although, there were times that he did “act out” many things, including the behaviors of others, who were not very aware of what they were projecting out into the World. Instead of seeing him as the problem, or being sensitive, we looked beyond the appearances to discover the true reasons for his behavior. Additionally, we began giving him the tools that would help him navigate in this World with more ease.

Of course, there were times when others enjoyed using the word sensitive when speaking about Tristan. However, we would always say “yes, Tristan is very aware.” It was always interesting to see how people processed the fact that there are actually possibilities instead of limitations. A very liberating way of being.

We see that there are so many aware children in the World and continuing to incarnate, in order to wake us up to our awareness. In fact, they are showing us, and some actually demanding, that we no longer continue to make ourselves and our children assimilate into a World that is filled with things that are of a vibration that is not working for us, our children and every living thing.

What if they are showing us a better way of being that honors and nurtures everyone and is filled with love, compassion and even more awareness. What would it take for all of us to step into our awareness, even if it does not agree with the reality of mainstream’s belief system?

Instead of seeing these children as being “sensitive,” why don’t we give them the proper tools and techniques to help them navigate their way in a World that has not been, up to this point, very gentle, nurturing and supportive of Highly Aware Beings.

download-1 2Michael and Janiece Boardway have been on an amazing journey with the birth of their son, Tristan, in 1993. As parents of one of the New Children, they learned to navigate their way with very little information in a World that didn’t quite understand the uniqueness of these children nor their part in our evolutionary process. By listening to their inner knowing, Michael and Janiece have allowed Tristan to take them on an incredible journey. This family works together as spiritual energy, vibrational and frequency healers, intuitive readers and teachers assisting children, teens, adults and families all over the world. They offer many services including Healing Light Illuminations, Enlightenment Guidance Consultations, Soul Print Symbols, Spiritual Energy Blessings to name a few. Tristan and Janiece are co-authors of an e-book, “The Light We Share.” To learn more about this family, please visit:


Screen Shot 2014-11-11 at 2.57.47 PMWhen Tristan was 7 years old, he shared his experiences with his parents, as a Being of Light and his conversation with God (Great Light in the book) before coming to Earth in this incarnation. Tristan really did not see it as a conversation, and always said it started out as an argument since as he said, “I told God, I am not going to that planet any more.” As one can see, the decision to come to Earth was not taken lightly by Tristan (Little Light in the book) and he was quite reluctant to leave his home in the Stars where he always felt loved and accepted. His memories of living on Earth before in other lifetimes were not always happy and he remembered deep sadness and loss. “The Light We Share” will take its readers through Tristan’s inner conflict about making the transition from a Spirit in the Stars to a Being on Earth. Ultimately, Tristan discovers that the love he feels so strongly i s always within and in every living thing.

When Tristan was 15 years old, he and his mom, together wrote his story to share with everyone with the desire that all who read this book, is reawakened to the loving light within them. Although created as a children’s picture book, this is a timely book for people of all ages and truly touches the heart of the inner child within us all.
