This week I have been doing some guided meditation and realize the power of intent. As we grow up, we often lose track of our desires. In the business of children, jobs, social activity, and just being a “grown-up” with all the responsibility that entails, it’s easy to lose our dreams and lose our self.
Meditation is a great tool to help us reconnect with ourself, and it’s a valuable tool for children as well. It helps keep us centered and stay connected to our body, mind and spirit. There is a lot of research that supports meditation for improved health – both physical and mental.
The focus of one of the meditations I recently practiced was on intention. What a great thing to teach our children. We should all have dreams and desires, but without being intentional about those dreams, they can become fairy-tales.
When I was teaching, I was in my element. Each day was filled with effortless intention, as I was doing what I felt I was always meant to do. Now that I am retired I find the same effortless satisfaction in writing. However through my meditation, I realized I haven’t been very intentional about it!! So, I have created my best writing space, which meant a few hours of thought about how that would look, sorting, organizing and cleaning out. It’s something I should have done long ago! It’s my own sacred space. Does your child have their own space that helps to support their desires and dreams?? Namaste.
