Let us instill within our children the beauty and pleasure of imagining and daydreaming. It is a natural part of us which gives birth to our desires and assists in the manifestation of our dreams.
Today, I am going to pretend we are living here in this quaint house.
I can hear the birds chirping in the distance, I relish the sound of a babbling brook softly dancing nearby, I hear the songs of the frogs, the serenade of crickets. I can smell the fire burning in our fireplace, the sweet smell of the grasses and the air is sweet, fresh and nourishes every cell of my body.
Perhaps I am making a hearty soup or broth over a fire, full of flavor from herbs grown within my garden just outside, the smell of bread nearing perfection in the oven right next to the fire.
Dream, dream, dream, imagine, imagine, imagine.
Take time to have a conversation with your child/children about their dreams. Spend time, even five minutes, longer if you are able pretending, contemplating some magical adventure. If you have never done this before, recognize it may be slow going at first, it may take time to stimulate the imagination which has been unknowingly suppressed by life.~ ♥
