Meditation for Children

The happiest people in the world are those who know and understand their hearts and the most confused, fearful, and sad are those who do not. I stand for freedom, truth and love, and I think while many may say they do, I don’t see people living it. We complain, criticise, and put our brothers and sisters down far too often because we don’t love ourselves, because we aren’t in touch with our hearts. By practicing love for ourselves we can put an end to this because when you love yourself there is no need to cut another down to level things back out. If we understand our divine nature as a unique and deserving part of this miraculous creation, just like everyone and everything else, we go about life with a sense of peace, understanding and ease. This is our birthright and this is what our children can be taught to tap into and utilize for the rest of their life, making success and happiness something that is naturally found within. Rather than seeking a good education, a good job, getting money and possessions, these things will happen completely naturally and organically because they know who they are, why they came here, and what to do. They will know their hearts desires, and when you follow your heart, you cannot go wrong.

Freedom to me means to be able to be who you are without fear, and without pain, but in grade school and highschool children begin to “make fun” of others, sometimes causing their True Self to be shrouded by the pain and fear which becomes linked to being who they are. Every parent and every person who has ever met a young child understands how beautiful and free they are in their ability to express themselves, to play and to imagine. If children were taught meditation from an early age they would continue to be strong in who they are throughout their teens and beyond. The fear of being their True Self would not be compromised by the overdevelopment of a fearful and protective ego-identity. The identity develops in their teenage years and if there isn’t a counterbalance, there can be a oversensitivity to fears and pain that can limit the young being’s creativity and self-expression. With regular meditation a child would be able to tap into their heart with absolute certainty and utilize the wisdom and creativity that goes along with being peaceful and confident in knowing who you are and what you want in life, free from fear, or at least courageous enough to pursue any endeavour that inspires joy, excitement and bliss, regardless of any fear.

Sarah wood at has written a book on child meditation and explains that when we practice a process in our minds we are able to repeat this process in the real world. This is demonstrated in physical and aerobic workouts and yoga. At a gym we practice lifting weights so we can use those muscles in real life. We also love to look good for each other don’t we? Likewise, in yoga we learn how to come into different asana/pose by reaching and stretching into our tension with the breath. We become more flexible in each moment using the power of our breath. And when we are in the moment, we are in touch with our inner guidance system, our intuition…our heart. Once we can be fully in the moment there is peace, trust and sense of knowingness. Everyone has access to this state of being, and considering it’s free, it is very wise to set aside at least 15 minutes a day to practice something that will benefit every single other area of your life.

One meditation for children is the Peace meditation for children 5-13.
There is the Love meditation for children 5-13.
The grounding cord, the sleepy cloud and the happy tree meditation also seem to be very appropriate for young children.

Try it for 10 days, and see how your child and you make a radical shift towards greater peace, freedom and confidence.

If you are considering a regular meditation practice for yourself. I reccommend this program.

Why Following your Bliss is so Important

Following your bliss is important because the vibration itself, the feeling itself, the sensation itself in your body, that you call excitement, bliss and passion is the physical body’s translation of the frequency of our True/Essential/Natural self. Our core essential natural self is the expanded part of us that we chose to be separated from through the process of being socialized, cultured, and civilized. It is the wise, loving, creative, joyful, fearless part of us that contains all our life experiences and all potential to become anything we desire. In the first phase of our life we experience the pain of disconnection, the dissatisfaction of believing illusion as truth, time and time again, until we finally had/have enough and seek the truth and reveal the false reality for its actual purpose: a canvas to paint a beautiful sunset on, a contrast to impose a work of art upon. As we emerge from the darkness of fear, doubt and illusion, into the Truth, our Expanded Self leads us, sometimes ever so gently and gracefully, other times ever so painfully and clumsily, towards experiences that feel better, that are more fulfilling and resonate our entire being with Truth. When you know it, you KNOW it. And if you don’t, then you haven’t felt it yet, but you will soon!

So, any experience that inspires the energy of passion, excitement, and bliss in us is marking that situation, that expression, at that moment, as being most harmoniously aligned with our Core, True, Natural being. And the willingness to act on it completes the circuit from Heaven to Earth. It grounds the circuit and allows for the manifestation of anything that resonates with that vibration in your reality that is capable of being manifested. It may be a poem, a song, an idea, a speech, a dance, an expression of love, a communication, or any other possible action you can dream up. But the point is that we have just served our highest purpose for existing in this life, in this physical realm, in that moment. You see, we humans, in our current and evolving perspectives, in these bodies, are the bridges that connect the physical with the non-physical. We are the conscious links between the manifest and the unmanifest. Our window of communication is the mind, and to communicate with the higher realms where all original creative expression comes from you must discover what brings you joy, passion and excitement, however you do this does not matter. But when you do you will experience a sense of freedom, happiness and satisfaction that you never knew was possible.
Every day, little by little, we peel back the veil, we look through the illusions, we confront our fears, deny our doubts, and clarify our confusions. We go deeper, we receive more information and more inspiration that guides us towards ways to experience this state of excitement, joy, and bliss more frequently. This is the state we came here to experience in its fullness. The rest is all distraction from this true goal. And when we take action that is aligned with the dreams of the Cosmos the whole Universe glows a little brighter because we have touched upon our potential as the conductors, the connectors between Heaven and Earth, between God and the Infinite timeless creative energy that everything comes from and returns to.

How do we go about finding our bliss?

* Sit and breathe.
* Meditate.
* This course can really help you find your passion and bliss.
* Purify your mind.
* Ask for Guidance, watch for the signs, and trust them.
* Take risks, and forget about failure cause if you try you will learn something which means you didn’t fail. Failing is being paralyzed by fear, but eventually, somehow, someday, you will be motivated to try again. So really, in the long-term, you cannot fail. The universe is designed to progress and succeed and you are part of it, so you will progress and you will succeed.
* Give up trying to look good for others and the world and just be who you are, love who you are and whatever that is. You are a beautiful piece of a brilliant puzzle that needs you to be the exact shape, colour and size you are for the whole thing to make sense and fit together.
* Choose actions that inspire a feeling of excitement in your body. You may never know until you step fully into the experience. The bliss may even, and probably is, shrouded by a cloak of fear from the outside, but you are infinite, so you can rest assured that walking through the cloud of fear will surely bring you a feeling of empowerment, excitement and joy, after maybe a couple of moments of discomfort. Learn to see your fears not as an aversion or something to be avoided, but something to welcome and to look straight at with hungry eyes. Courage is acting while the fear, the discomfort and the tension is fully alive in your mind and it’s begging you to back down. It is an illusion. Part of the game. Part of what makes it interesting. So enjoy yourself. Enjoy the fear, enjoy the bliss, it’s all a fun game of forgetting and remembering.

May you emerge into the fullness of your True Divine self and experience the pure energy we call “bliss,”


Again, I really recommend at least trying this course. It can really help you find your passion and manifest a life of pure blissed out creation.

This was inspired by the teachings of BASHAR and Abraham-Hicks
