Relaxing and winding down at the end of a full on day is a really important part of our routine for the kids. We always end the day reading together, cuddling and chatting about our day. We were recently sent The Children’s Meditations-In My Heart book to review and I was really interested to introduce something new to our bedtime routine.
The Children’s Meditations-In My Heart by Gitte Winter Graugaard is a collection of meditations designed to help children drift off to sleep within minutes. The book contains a collection of four meditations for parents to read to their children. Each meditation shows parents how to teach their child the importance of self-esteem and self-love.
Reading the first meditation to the kids did feel a little strange, it was definitely different to anything I’ve read to them before. This meditation was all about filling up your heart with love and involved lots of visualisation. The kids are really good with visualisation so they found this easy to do.
The second meditation was all about sending and receiving love. I found the advice and recommendations from Gitte at the beginning of each meditation really helpful. Reading the meditations to the kids made me feel really relaxed and peaceful too.
Daisy wanted to read some of the book for herself which I was happy for her to do. Both of the kids enjoyed the change from listening to our usual bedtime stories. It was a lovely way to relax together.
The third meditation is about letting your child know how much you think about them. I think my favourite meditation is the fourth and final one all about sharing your love with the universe. It focusses on learning empathy and gratefulness which to me are two of the most important things I want to teach my kids.
We had a really nice week reading and practising the meditations, it’s definitely a book we will be re-visiting again. The hardback book we received is beautifully and simplistically illustrated and is really good quality. I really liked the space at the back of the book to write notes about your experience with the meditations too.
