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 www.sarahwood.com 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.

Clarity is Key

Clear inner vision is critical if we are to achieve peace and prosperity. By developing a focused awareness of our inner state, particularly the relationhip between our thoughts and our feelings, we shine light on a view of reality that resists the flow of peace and prosperity into our life. By learning to observe not just how we are feeling but what we are thinking about how we are feeling, we can begin to see that how we feel in any moment is a choice, if we can see each defective program running on autopilit and then stopping them. This is most difficult at first, but with time, and practice we can achieve complete control over our emotional state, regardless of what circumstances arise.

This is true power and inner strength.

This is the purpose of meditation, yoga, and holistic healing. Each aims to improve our happiness, health and inner strength. And every time we feel more happy, peaceful, confident, and secure, the life of our dreams comes closer to us experiencing it. This program is a short cut that keeps us in a positive state and therefore attracting what we truly want.

If ever we feel victimized and feelings of powerlessness, blame, or shame arise, we can observe this undesirable state and shift our focus to what we want (happiness, satisfaction, joy, excitement), rather than what we don’t want (shame, guilt, fear, doubt). Even if you aren’t sure why certain unwanted experiences keep happening, if you are suffering at all, you know somewhere a limiting program is running in your mind that is distorting your perception. in short, a lie is being told, and that lie is holding your dreams outside your experience of life.

When we can feel good about things we don’t like, this is the first step to getting what we want. One way to do this is to feel gratitude because each negative experience holds the seed of what we DO want within it. The next step is focusing as much energy and attention to what you truly want and never ever ever giving up! You can and will have the life of your dreams. And even if right now all you want is to feel better, develop more self love, compassion, acceptance, peace….and maybe a new car and the partner of your dreams. All this and more is possible and I will totally show you how to do that.

I credit meditation to being the most significant transformative agent in my life. When I started meditating, I was lead to incredible awakenings that drugs and alcohol pale in comparison to.  I found a new purpose. I found the strength, focus, guidance, motivation and determination to pursue my new dreams. This all began only 6 years ago while I was in my first year of University for nursing. At the time I was just using basic meditation (focusing on the breath), and I still do sometimes. But these days I prefer the turbo charge method. There are several amazing programs that combine the brilliance of meditation with new brainwave technologies and actually induce meditative states in order to access the subconscious more directly. This is similar to removing viruses and installing programs that you enjoy using on your computer. In my opinion, it’s the fastest and most effective way to becoming a successful, happy, confident, and peaceful person who knows their purpose and gets what they want.  This is a very effective program that is only a $1.00 to try out and you get to keep the program materials even if you don’t want to continue on with the actual program. It’s called Meditation Manifestation and it can change your life in a very meaningful and profound way. May you achieve the life of your dreams and experience happiness, success, joy and wealth.

Much Love,

Theo
