- It is in the form of a story. So, it does a very good job of keeping the little ones engaged. They use Aladdin, his magic lamp and attaining super powers which are very interesting for children.
- The story illustrates the Law of Attraction without actually stating the law. For kids, this is a practical example of manifesting your desires without explaining the theory behind it.
- it covers gratitude and sharing in a very seamless way so there are good moral lessons for the kids.
Over the last few days, we tried the meditation thrice. The good thing is my daughter liked the story and readily agreed to listen to it each time. The bad thing is that each time she fell asleep before the guided meditation was over! I don’t blame her. Ilona Selke’s soothing voice and the background music is so calming and relaxing that it is easy to fall asleep. Genetics are also at play here. I too have often fallen asleep during guided meditation sessions, at times during corporate trainings that caused very embarrassing moments for me. I digress! I am sure the good folks at Thriive did not aim to create a lullaby video but it serves that purpose too. In fact, during her afternoon nap once, my daughter actually asked for this video to be played.

If you have young kids and would like to introduce them to meditation, this is a good starting point. Once they are used to the concept of guided meditations, you could move on to the theory of Law of Attraction, Manifestation, Gratitude and Mindfulness – all of which they would be able to relate back to what they have heard in this story.
Do you practice meditation with your kids or plan to introduce them to it? What are the resources you use?
