SEVEN MILLION CHILDREN MEDITATING
Simply put, the practice of meditation allows for us to clear our thoughts, relax our minds and centre within. Meditation is not religious, it is practice that allows us to turn within and to befriend that deeper part of us that often is not listened to.
At OmmaySing Me we teach children and adults to meditate, beginning with ONE MINUTE, by connecting to the breath, finding that still, silent space within, bypass the constant mind talk and connect more deeply with the heart.
Meditation has been practised by millions of people for thousands of years and is rooted in scientific research as having many many benefits, stress reduction, peace of mind, sharpened awareness, ability to cope with life, increased tolerance and patience, deeper spiritual connection and longer healthier living.
Believing that every child has a birthright to discover and know their own inner greatness and to shape their lives from principles of unconditional love, inner peace, kindness and compassion is the meaning and reason for OmmaySing Me.
In 2014 I created a campaign to place meditation and self love lessons in all UK schools and nurseries and this continues to attract signatures globally. OmmaySing Me was lovingly born into being in 2014 and has since then evolved and expanded with more love. OmmaySing Me is all about INSPIRING CHILDREN TO LOVE AND ACCEPT THEMSELVES and OTHERS through meditation, creativity, singing and positive affirmative thinking. Knowing that we are all connected, OmmaySing Me is a positive educational tool for children, families, teachers and carers.
Very recently the UK Government declared its intention to make mandatory emotional and mental health lessons for all children 4 years and above in the UK from 2020 and meditation is a key factor in this decision.
The quality of life that we choose to live is determined by the quality of thoughts that we choose to think and children are increasingly pressured with external influences that can alter the state of their being and the choices that they make. This is greatly impacted by social media and peer pressure and can have a huge impact on family life.
