I don’t really know how it started (much like everything lately) but tonight, Hubbie, baby girl and I ended up doing impromptu meditations on each other.
I think baby girl was laying across us, and I started with a few light instructions.
“Close your eyes. Take a deep breath in… and out.”
The fun really began when she took the reigns. Here are some snippets of what she said when she was instructing US:
“Close your eyes.
Take a deep breath in… and out.
Take 3 more deep breaths.
Imagine the sun rising up.
And there’s a rainbow next to the sun.
And in the rainbow are unicorns… and kittens… and cats…
And any other animal you like.
Imagine lovely nature.
And when you’re ready, slowly open your eyes.”
OMG. How is my daughter a meditation guru with her soft instructions like that? Maybe something to do with the fact that she does yoga and meditation at her school, and during lockdown, with so much time to fill, she listened to and watched a lot of meditation and yoga videos online…
She totally has the knack. She will relax you and put you to sleep any day… in the BEST way possible. 💖
