I Think, I Am

Louise Hay has been spreading the word that "Your thoughts create your life!". Through her books, she has been shaping the lives of adults since the 1970s. Her first book "Heal Your Body", discussed the mind body connection long before it was a hot topic. She introduced positive thought patterns to replace negative emotions, healing yourself body and mind. I presented her children's book to the Alluem Kids this weekend, I Think, I Am. We discussed the meaning and power of affirmations and there is no better book to discuss this topic with kids then Louise Hay's. Kids are introduced the difference between negative thoughts and positive affirmations. It's filled with examples on how to make the change from negative thoughts into positive actions. After reading the story, I had the kids come up with their own affirmation and make a little sign that they could take home and hang on their mirrors, over their beds, or on their doors. Repeating an affirmation over and over again can promote change. And that's exactly what they did during their 3 minute and 30 second meditation. Adding some play to the lesson, we put together our own Affirmation Web. The kids passed inspirational affirmations around a circle using a ball of twine. Taking hold of one end and rolling it from child to child as the twine criss-crossed it's way around, we came up with a web of affirmations - perfect for practicing Spider Pose in!
