Intermediate Sitting Meditation for Kids

Once you've learned the basic sitting meditation for kids of sitting still and breathing evenly in and out, it's time to try an intermediate meditation.

To begin:

Sit up straight on a towel or blanket on the grass or beach if outdoors, or on a thick rug if indoors. Cross your legs in and fold your hands in your lap.

Close your eyes and begin breathing like this: on count 1 breathe in; on count 2 breathe out; on count 1 breathe in; on count 2 breathe out and continue this rhythmic pattern during your sitting meditation.

After you are used to the pattern stop saying the numbers, but keep up the rhythm of breathing.

Now, think for some moments with appreciation about at least one good thing in your life. It could be a loving parent or family, a close friend, a helpful teacher, for example.

When we keep an appreciation in mind we look at more stressful situations in a positive way. This helps new fresh ideas for solving problems come up in our mind.

Now include a small verse of gratefulness to end your meditation:

I am grateful for my family and friends,
I am grateful for my school,
Please help me remember
To show I care
When others need me, too.

Finish your meditation by taking a deep breath and slowly letting it out. Open your eyes. Stretch out and go on with your day with a good attitude.

I invite you to join me in a daily group cyber meditation for personal and planetary peace. Click the article here to read about it.
