Meditation can help kids respond to internal signals of stress before their developing brains and bodies give in to a full-blown tantrum. The key is intuiting what your child needs to come back into balance and giving him or her the tools to practice.
In this fast-advancing digital age, there is a gush of information on all levels. Time seems to be rushing and there is a sense of urgency and expectations of instant response and action.
This is leaving many kids under pressure, facing stress and anxiety, and feeling tremendously overwhelmed, which has directly affected the younger generations who are equally struggling to adapt. Children as young as 5 years are showing signs of depression, anxiety, loss of focus, memory congestions, irritability, aggressive response, and constant worry.
Hence comes the powerful role of kids meditation and mindful practices for children. In a recent study that was carried on around 400 students, it was found that after five weeks of regular mindfulness sessions, students became more participatory, and caring.
Research shows that mediation enhances brain neuroplasticity, in which brain centers for emotions and executive functioning can be altered. This will result in emotional regulation thereby having fewer meltdown, a reduction of impulsivity and improvement in concentration and focus and ability to adapt to change without piling on stress.
Children under the age of 7 are naturally in an alpha/theta brainwave. This is the brainwave of accelerated learning, problem solving, creative adaptability, imagination and happiness. As they grow up, they start being conditioned, programed and boxed into collective beliefs and limiting patterns.
Hence teaching children the practice of mediation from an early age will allow them to expand and anchor the alpha/theta brain wave, which keeps them connected to the realm of endless possibilities, to imagination and magic, that allows for a healthy and progressive self-expression and realization.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
For a beginner, guided meditation is easiest to achieve brain entrainment, i.e., tuning the frequency of your brain to a particular wavelength to achieve desired results. The voice and the music used in guided meditation helps to provide the ideal roadmap for the mind to focus and enter into deep meditation.
During a guided meditation, you enter into deep relaxation and lowering of brain frequency which is a sleep state. Even if you fall asleep, the unconscious mind is still awake and is working based on the guidance given. With greater practice, there would be awareness while you are in a sleep state. This is when one might have out-of-body experiences also.
Your eyes should always be closed during meditation. Closing eyes helps to activate the pineal gland in your brain, which is light-sensitive. Your pineal gland secretes a powerful healing hormone called Melatonin when it is dark. Melatonin is a powerful chemical that induces transcendence and allows you to go deep in awareness.
Select a quiet and dark place to meditate, where you can sit upright comfortably and focus without disturbances.
You don’t need to look for a particular outcome when you start to meditate. Just allow yourself to embrace whatever transpires during the meditation. When you start meditating, just allow yourself to relax and give the intention to surrender and let go. Every experience is unique. There is no right, there is no wrong.
