SunChild was planted whilst up in the Himalayas, as a way to keep children’s light shining. When I learnt to mediate my first thought was, where was this knowledge growing up!? Having lost my mother when I was two years old, my father then remarried and my childhood became a dark place. I developed a negative belief system of myself, as a result of a difficult home life. Thinking that the world was against me, I constantly was seeking for love and comfort outside of myself. This all changed the moment I learnt to meditate, it become very clear that I could achieve anything, having natures full support and deserving all the love in the world. The vision was to nurture children’s lights with positive ‘I am statements’ so that they could grow with a positive belief system, that they can achieve anything! By giving children this knowledge we are reminding them daily of their natural state of bliss.They can grow confidently with a strong sense of Self, believing that they are beautiful, fulfilled and loved, just the way they are. Having a background in Steiner education, I believe now more than ever it is such an importance of getting children amongst nature. Especially with the huge rise of technology, gaming and social media. Not just for their physical but also social and mental health. This is why Sunchild’s ethos is to be outdoors and really connect to mother earth.
