Yogi Bhajan gave this meditation specifically for children to use in times when their parents are fighting and going through a crisis, to give them the experience of remaining stable and unaffected. Of course, the meditation can be done at any time! Children, especially under the age of six, have a much shorter attention span than adults. All meditations with movement and variation work well. They like simple celestial communication.
Time: 1-11 minutes
Mantra: I Am Happy, I Am Good, I Am Happy, I Am Good. Sat Naam Sat Naam Sat Naam Ji, Wahe Guru Wahe Guru Wahe Guru Ji.
Meaning of the Mantra: Sat Naam means “my true identity” while Wahe Guru is like WOW! an exclamation of wonder. Guru means dispeller of darkness and the one that leads us to the true essence of our soul. It can also be seen as that process of coming into the light, elevating our consciousness.
- Sit in Easy Pose.
- Recite the mantra “I Am Happy, I Am Good, I Am Happy, I Am Good. Sat Naam Sat Naam Sat Naam Jee Whaa-hay Guroo Whaa-hay Guroo Whaa-hay Guroo Jee”.
- In the rhythm of the mantra, the children shake their index fingers up and down (like their parents might sometimes do when they are reproaching the child).
