Introducing the Idea of Visualization to your Kids
While we love the idea of Dream Pillow providing kids (and parents) a restful night of sleep, but positive thinking and visualization isn’t just for nighttime. Teaching kids to visualize, or “make pictures in their mind” is a great way to introduce the idea of manifestation, and there are also great benefits in education such as reading comprehension and overall retention.
Here are a couple of things to consider when introducing the idea of visualization to your kids!
- Encourage kids to use all their senses in visualizing their idea. What does it sound like, smell like, and feel like? The more specifically we can create these experiences in our own imagination, the more powerful they will be.
- See it from your own perspective. Rather than watching like a spectator in your own visualization, see the movement or activity play out from your own perspective. For example, if your child is riding a horse in their dream, they shouldn’t be seeing it from a distance, but rather imagining the vantage point from the saddle, seeing the reins in their hands, and feeling the rhythm of the horse’s gallop. If you talk through these details with your child, they will begin to understand how to build these images on their own.
- Practice! Like anything, visualization takedown repetition to become good at it. As we help to build our children’s imagination, the practice of positive visualization plays a huge role in creating their success, overcoming fears, and even honing in on special talents. A daily routine of practicing visualization will help children learn how to employ this practice whenever they need it.
