Choices - Children's Meditation
In this class we find that we are the creators of our life and that to be happy we need to choose to be happy.
Do you know one of the most powerful lessons you can learn in life? (Most people don't know this lesson)
Would you like to know what it is? (It is very simple. But sometimes it is difficult to live)
Are you ready?
The choices you make are responsible for every one of your life’s experiences. You are the creator of you.
Now I know that might sound kind of strange but it is very true. It means that you are responsible for your life. Whether you are sad or happy, loving or not loving, peaceful or not peaceful, in heaven or hell. It is not the world or your mum or your teacher that makes you happy, it is not anyone else, it is only you. You and your choices. The way you think.
For example, if you choose to think of yourself as being ugly, then guess what? That will be your experience. You will always see the ways that you are ugly and not the ways that you are beautiful. It is strange but if you do some research you will find that often the most beautiful people think of themselves as being ugly. If you think of yourself as being stupid, then your subconscious mind will look for all the ways that you are stupid and not notice the times when you are smart. It is your choice.
If you want to have a joyful life, you first need to choose joy. Choose to see yourself as a joyful, loving person and focus on all the times that you are in joy. If you remember only the times that you are sad than you will continually reinforce that version of you. You will think of yourself as being a depressed or sad person. Try remembering the best version of you – and with your remembering you will reinforce and strengthen that version of you. You are the creator of you, and your thoughts and choices and intentions are the chisels that sculpt you. Does that make sense?
For example, if you want to be a successful dancer, then you need to think of yourself as a success. Imagine how it feels, imagine yourself moving effortlessly as a great dancer and then celebrate each one of your experiences that reinforces that vision of yourself. When you practise your dancing, don’t focus on the times that you don’t feel like you are dancing well, put all of your attention on those moments when you are dancing like a great dancer.
Perhaps you want to be the best fireman in the world, well, the same thing is true. Imagine how it feels to be the best fireman in the world. How he or she would act at a fire or around friends. Then reinforce over and over that version of you. It is simple isn’t it? Your choices, your thoughts and intentions shape every experience of yours in life.
Aim high. Look at the best. Don’t choose the lowest, choose the highest version of yourself.
Who is? - Children's Meditation
Sometimes it is hard to understand exactly what people mean, and sometimes for the biggest questions in life everyone has a different answer.
When people talk about God and what we are doing here on earth, for example, you'll find that most people don’t agree on very much at all.

Great for Bedtime!
My 4yo and 2yo love to listen to these meditations at bedtime. They are great for relaxing them and learning about meditation too. I also like to listen to them cause they're a good, easy way to meditate when I don't feel like I have the time to do so. I always feel better after listening to this podcast. Thanks for creating it!
