Birth Order – Part Two
The Rayid Birth Order model is one way to help us to understand and appreciate the qualities of each individual. Developed by Denny Johnson, the founder of Rayid International, it provides a unique method to attain a deeper understanding of our children. Understanding and nurturing your child’s specific gifts brings strength and success to the child and allows that individual to reach their highest potential.
Just a quick refresh from last month
There are 12 siblings sequences – 6 Boys & 6 girls
The father determines the order of succession. Children conceived by the father follow a precise sequence of 12 types regardless of who is the mother. An embryo that survives past 16 weeks is included in the sequence.
Other influences can also change the sequence, such as blended families, an absence of one parent, grandparents or even foster children living within the family unit for more than a year.
Birth order can (as does life) get a little complicated. If you want to fully understand how these influences affect your children and your family consider purchasing “The Nature of Birth Order” by Denny Johnson & Edith Cuffe see below for more details
Last month I discussed the unique qualities of a first born boy and girl.
This month we will discover what the 2nd born bring to our lives.
As the first born girl is very Yang in nature the 2nd born’s expression is yin. She may have detached quality, look delicate and appear introverted, but she will have a sharp mind.
No 2 girls like to have their own space and chose when they wish to interact. Just like a cat bestowing its attention, No2 girls prefer to play when she is ready, …. in her timing. Privacy is very important for a No2 girl. She needs her own room, her own thoughts & feelings. This child hates being told what to do, especially by her bossy older sister. Asking rather than telling achieves best results.
Parents should never compare a No 2 girl to her older sister. Instead they should try to enter her secrete world and ask her to tell them all about the fairies in the bottom of the garden. It is important that the father of a No 2 girl to be gentle & encouraging so she will develop a belief in her own feminity. Sit quietly with her and breathe in her silent beauty. What we can learn from this child is the inner strength to find the peace that exists in solitude.
When the polarities shift -if the first born girl shifts into the softer yin position the 2nd born girl will move into a more yang space of the No3 girl
What we can learn from The Nature of Birth order not only helps us better understand our own children but also our siblings, family & friends.
You may by now have observed that the order moves in an alternate yin & yang position. The order is determined by the 1st born. If the first born is Yang then the 2nd child will have more Yin qualities the 3rd yang, ect. If the 1st born is in a Yin position the order will alternate 2nd Yang, 3rd Yin etc…
Warmest wishes to you all
