Meditations in my Heart by Gitte Winter Graugaard – Review

Gitte Winter Graugaard’s wonderful book The Children’s Meditation’s In My Heart, which was recently translated from Danish into English is a collection of short meditation’s that help bring more love into a child’s life, to help create an ability to switch off at the end of a busy manic and highly stimulative day and to teach them to take time to love themselves because that is one of the hardest things to do in this world.

The Book itself contains four short stories to share with your child, both Kai and Amelia have really enjoyed the story telling and the almost calm illustrations that open on each story at the end of each story there is two different endings to create one which is for day time, back to play and with hearts full of love and bed time, time for sleep and dream of wonderful things full of love.

It also has little reflections for you to do with your child, much like if its bed time and they’re already fast asleep, spend a little but longer just enjoying the closeness with your child.

Mr S is a little bit of a skeptic with this sort of thing, a little too ‘new age’ for him but I believe that in this day of age that even children need to learn to turn in on themselves and reflect on things and thoughts to create a positive mind and mood.

I have to say my favorite meditation of the book has to be the very last one, With the Universe I Share my Love, it teaches children to look beyond themselves and think of those who might not have the same life they have and teaches them to have empathy for others which is also so important in this world, it creates a little calm and a respect for others that some lack these days.

This is such a beautiful book, in a world full of bad things, finding the time to meditate with your child and help them find love in themselves and for the world is such an important thing to do.

Until next time

    Such a cool idea! A friend of mine has a book of emotions that’s like “I feel x because xyz and that’s ok because…” to teach her four-year-old about his emotions. It’s so cool that companies are coming out with books like these to really attune children to themselves. I’m looking at getting something similar in a few years for when my boy is old enough!

    xo, Victoria
