How I got my son interested in meditation.

(and how you can easily do it too.)

When my son started asking about meditation, I knew I couldn’t talk to him about it like a “mini- adult” but I also knew that saying “close your eyes and focus on your breath” wasn’t going to cut it either. 

My son needed an explanation (much like I did) about the whys and hows behind “closing your eyes and being present”. 

The answer was simple. To read him a story…

With fun adventures and relatable characters much like his other favourite bedtime stories. 

Naturally sparking his curiosity and making him ask ME if we could meditate together, instead of the other way around.

I knew that if I could teach him this one essential skill now, he would be able to deal with anything life threw at him.

You need someone or something that makes it VERY easy for you to teach your kids
how to calm themselves down, lower their anxiety and cope with difficult emotions
so they can THRIVE...
- no matter the circumstance -

(and yes, also sleep better, have less shouting and do better at school!) 

You are in Luck, cause the Meditation Fairy is In, that's Me!

Hey I'm Maricela,

Author, certified meditation teacher, mum, lover of stories and serious chocoholic.

And my aim is to get your kids ASKING YOU to for a meditation instead of the other way around. 

No more asking them to calm down or take a deep breath, through my books and guided meditations children will learn  the skills to calm themselves down and live more happily and with less anxiety.  

Let me tell you how I got into meditation, but first have you ever bought something you thought you really wanted… only to regret it afterwards?

I did this with a house (yup big mistake)

We left our tiny 2 bed flat in London for a 5 bed house in the middle of the English countryside. 

A few weeks after moving in, I came back from an event in London and all of a sudden it hit me. I didn’t want to be there and yet I wasn’t sure where I wanted to be. 

I cried uncontrollably. For having given up what I thought was my dream job (it wasn’t). For having moved away from everyone and everything I knew. 

I felt completely lost and alone. Then suddenly my then 14-month-old started grabbing tissues and bringing them to me.  

Toddling along with that I’m still finding my balance kind of walk, he kept walking to and fro between the tissues and the spot where I was sitting on the floor.  

At that moment something clicked inside.

And I realised I had to do something. I didn’t want to become a depressed, resentful mom to my son. 

I didn’t know it then, but that was the start of a journey that would end up in me finding meditation. 

And in that living room still full of boxes with my 14 month old holding my hand…a little part of Meditation Fairy was born as well.

It took me postnatal depression, burn out and migraines to find meditation.

I didn’t want that for my son.

We can’t “out-parent” anxiety, stress or worry out of our kids.

But we can give them the tools that will help them, help themselves.

Why create stories on meditation?

1.

Sometimes parenting feels like an insurmountable mountain. And it’s difficult to figure out what is the best thing for your child. 

2.

But the thing is that sometimes as parents what you may think is perfect, might not be your child’s idea of perfect. 

3.

The most difficult part of parenting is letting children find the answer themselves but you can give them the tools to find their own “perfect”, their own idea of happiness.

4.

This is why we created Meditation Fairy, so that you can easily introduce meditation to your children… 

5.

Without feeling like you’re “teaching” them because you’re simply reading them a bedtime story.
