My Magical Garden
A very Happy New Year to you all and welcome to our first blog! We are very excited about our new book called “My Magical Garden” which is coming out in the very near future (we will keep you posted!). Here is a quick explanation of the book and how it might be helpful to you and your child.
For the child it is just a beautiful book where they get to build up their own magical garden by making choices on each page. It helps them to tap into their imagination and create their own magical garden which can become a place of safety and somewhere for them to go in their mind during times of stress, fear, sadness or just when they need a bit of quiet time.
For the adult it is a guide book to their child’s emotions. Each choice the child makes is a reflection of what is going on in their mind. The adult looks up the meaning of each choice by using the appendix and this helps them to understand how their child is feeling and how best to help them.
We have been using the book for quite some time and have found it incredibly helpful and insightful. The children just seem to love making the choices (it gives them a chance to be in control) and each time their choices are different although some can remain the same. It just depends what’s going on in their life.
It’s a lovely meditation and is incredibly effective in helping children to feel safe and secure. A lot of children who are using it already find it really helps them at the end of the day when they are going to bed. It helps them release the worries of the day.
A number of parents have let us know that their children are now going to sleep on their own and sleeping through the night since listening to the meditation which is fantastic!
So we will let you know as soon as the book is available.
