Meditation with a 5 month old. Talk about distracting. All he wants is his hands in his mouth and his feet in his hands. Sitting in silence, yea right! So why even try?
Because I believe setting up a calm space and setting an example for when he can fully grasp and absorb what and why we are doing is CRUCIAL to create a mindful life for him and I.
Also i truly believe in this higher consciousness that babies possess prior to their spoken word. I mean our bodies grow them and deliver these miracles so they must understand the connection of energy in the universe.
Take a few minutes to create a space, use anything you want but be consistent so they can understand when they see these things or hear this music, it is time to be calm and connect.
Namaste & Love
